  • TRACK: Lady Hawks learn teamwork

     The strength of this year’s LaRue County High School girls’ track team likely lies in the athletes knowing that there is always room for improvement, according to coach Laura Kudrna.

    “None of the girls come out thinking they know it all or that they are the sole individual to win it all for the team,” said the fifth-grade teacher at Hodgenville Elementary School, in her third year as coach. “We all know that everyone contributes to the team, whether it’s an individual event, relay or field.”
