  • Lady Hawks fall to Hart, 52-32

    The scouting report LaRue County coach Travis Wootton drew up for the Hart County Lady Raiders was a simple one: keep tabs on senior guards Lexee Wilson, Jordan Strother and Leah Burd.
    Task not accomplished.
    Burd, Wilson and Strother combined to hit six 3-pointers as the visiting Lady Raiders knocked off 18th District rival LaRue County, 52-32 on Friday night.

  • Hawks’ cold play breaks Hart

    With a 22-point halftime lead over 18th District rival Hart County, the LaRue County Hawks hit a lull and went ice cold coming out of the locker room Friday night.
    Settling for long jump shots and 3-pointers, the Hawks were held scoreless for nearly 5 minutes after halftime. Veteran coach Paul Childress burned two timeouts in that span, and got on his players for not executing the game plan.
    The Hawks responded with an 18-8 run to close the third quarter en route to an 81-53 win over the visiting Raiders.
