  • Hawks prevail against injuries,...

    September began with a bevy of injuries for the Hawks soccer team. None were more devastating than to our two leading scorers – juniors Alex Cook and Ricardo Collado.  
    Cook returned to play with limited movement, but Ricardo remained sidelined. Without teamwork, determination, and personal sacrifice, a lesser team would have self-destructed. That is not the nature of this year’s team.
    There is an old saying, “Offense wins fans, but defense wins championships.”  

  • Saint Catherine College offers...

    The St. Catharine College baseball staff will host a baseball skills camp for ages 6-18 at LaRue County Parks and Recreation 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Oct. 3. The cost is $50 per camper with siblings given a $5 discount per child. Teams of nine or more players will be able to attend for $45 per camper.
    Campers will be given instruction in hitting, fielding, throwing and base running. The Patriot coaching staff and current players will work individual stations so each player will get ample attention.

  • Hawks knock Nelson 38-24,...

    LaRue County’s special teams didn’t let the Hawks down Friday night.
    After allowing a kick return for a touchdown in consecutive losses to Green County and Spencer County, the Hawks finally had a play go their way against visiting Nelson County.
    Senior Cody Thompson returned a kickoff 93 yards for a score and added three rushing touchdowns to spark the Hawks to a 38-24 win over Nelson County, dropping the Cardinals to 0-5 for the first time since the team went 0-10 in Bill Mason’s final season in 2005.

  • FOOTBALL: Thompson carries Hawks...

    Cody Thompson put the LaRue County Hawks on his back Friday and carried them to a much-needed win.

    Thompson accounted for more than 250 all-purpose yards and scored four touchdowns to lead the host Hawks to a 38-24 win over the Nelson County Cardinals at Hawk Field.

    Thompson rushed for a game-high 150 yards and three scores on 27 carries and returned two kicks for 113 yards and another touchdown to help the Hawks (2-3) snap a two-game losing streak and extend the Cardinals’ skid to five.

  • HMH offers concussion assessment...

    When an athlete suffers a concussion, how long should it be before he is allowed to return to the game?
    That’s a question that can be more accurately answered this year as LaRue County High School, in association with Hardin Memorial Hospital’s sports medicine program, is implementing a type of concussion assessment that can help to objectively evaluate the injured athlete’s condition and track recovery for safe return to play.
