    By Ashley Scoby, Summer Intern

    It’s a hot summer night and the sun is blazing down, but the football field at LaRue County High School is alive with action. Guys streak across the field, as they play a game of 7-on-7 two-hand-touch football. The game easily could be in someone’s backyard at a summer barbeque – laughter is reverberating across the field and there are roars of delight when someone makes a particularly impressive catch.

  • Dawson takes 10th in Junior Golf...

     After area golfers struggled in the opening day of the Junior PGA Championship qualifier, they came to life in Thursday’s final round. Especially Michael Reed.

  • ECTC to offer fall sports

    Elizabethtown Community and Technical College President Dr. Thelma White announced Thursday the college would be fielding club-level teams in men’s and women’s soccer, men’s basketball and women’s tennis.

    Starting with the fall semester coming up in August, the Barons are back.

    The college last had basketball teams in the 1980s. Dean of Students Dale Buckles remembers how students in those years had something to take school pride in.

    He wants current students to experience that same feeling.

    After area golfers struggled in the opening day of the Junior PGA Championship qualifier, they came to life in Thursday’s final round. Especially Michael Reed.

  • Sandidge competes at State Park...

     Forty miles a week, going on 60. A mid-17-minute 5K time. Consistently beating out older and stronger runners in statewide races. You could say Adam Sandidge isn’t the typical 16-year-old. 

    Heading into his junior year at LaRue County High School, Sandidge has been running since he came across the high school cross-country tryouts when he was in the fifth grade. By seventh grade, he had run his first 10-mile race. 

  • Four Hawks named to Baseball All...

    LaRue County had senior Slade Owens named to the first team, while seniors Jesse Johnson and Kyle Sheeran and junior Cole Hughes were selected to the second team.
