  • Mather leaves legacy of medals,...

    Donald Mather, 81, one of LaRue County’s most successful athletes, didn’t know the meaning of the word “quit.”

    Despite recent setbacks with his health, he continued to remain as active as possible.

    One of his neighbors, Robin Lee, said he loved to mow his own yard. It was an ongoing joke between the two of them – she would look out her door to check on him as he made rounds on the lawnmower and he’d wave his hand, signaling he was “OK.”

  • Lady Hawks defeat Green County

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks volleyball team played two matches last week, losing to Central Hardin and then defeating long-time rival Green County, improving their record to 10-3.

  • Young cross country team sets...

    Josh Henderson and his LaRue County High School cross country runners have set some lofty goals for this year, but with an experienced girls’ squad returning and a boys’ team whose main strengths are competitiveness and hard work, they just might meet their aspirations.

    “We want to go to state as teams, be more competitive, and make reasonable individual goals,” said Henderson, who has coached the team for three of the four years he has been teaching at the high school.

  • Golfers eye regional championship

    The 27 boy golfers that came out to play this season are the largest number that Coach Rip Collins can recall in his four years mentoring the LaRue County High School Hawks or even when he was at Caverna for four years prior to that.

    “We’re young, but there’s a lot of talent here and if these boys will stick together, I think we’ll even have a shot at a regional championship down the road,” he said. “It’s not even out of the realm to get to state.”

  • LaRue County Youth Soccer...
