  • Armes reflects on football...

    After 16 years of what he and his former players have described as “a lot of blood, sweat, and tears (both of sadness and joy), Rodney Armes, head coach of LaRue County High School’s Hawks’ varsity football team, has hung up his coach’s whistle.
     “I felt it was time for some new blood,” Armes, who retired from coaching at the end of the 2011 season, said. “I still have a passion for the game, but it’s time for a younger person with fresh ideas, plus I wanted to go out on my own terms.”

  • Lady Hawks hope to repeat as...

    LaRue County’s defending 18th District Champion girls’ varsity basketball team is out to demonstrate that last year’s journey to the semifinals of the Fifth Region tournament and a 27-4 season record weren’t flukes.
    “I think the girls want to prove that last year was legit,” said Travis Wootton, in his seventh year at the Lady Hawks’ helm. “We have experience and size.”

  • Experienced guard play will be...

    Head Coach Paul Childress is looking for veteran guards to help LaRue County High School’s boys varsity basketball team, the Hawks, soar through the upcoming season.
    “I think our strengths will be experienced guard play,” the coach, in his seventh year as Hawks head coach, said. “Our guards have a lot of varsity experience and should bring a lot of leadership to this team and I will stack our guards up with any backcourt in the region.”
