  • Abell makes 20 saves against...

    When a team plays the fourth-ranked team in the state, a team ranked in the top 50 in the nation, a team that has already won a state championship this season, that team is supposed to lie down and die, accept the mercy rule and go home.
    Somebody forgot to tell the LaRue County Hawks soccer team about proper protocol. The Hawks came for battle and battle to the end they did. If you love soccer, you would have loved this match.

  • Young Hawks compete against Hart

    Sometimes, in the broad athletic world, we coaches think we are more important than the game itself. Sometimes we think we are indispensable. Sometimes, we think the players owe us everything.  
    Sometimes, we are the lowest people on the face of the earth.
    As coaches, we have the responsibility of 30 to 50 young student-athletes. Our dream is to train them to be world class athletes. Many of us try to do this by any means possible. Most times, we fail.
