  • Hawks smash North Bullitt in...

    Delaying the LaRue County-North Bullitt varsity football game by 24 hours provided a more pleasant atmosphere for fans and much drier field for the players.

    LaRue's Alex Lee led the Hawks' potent running attack Saturday night. The junior rushed for a game-high 198 yards and three touchdowns as LaRue recorded a 42-6 win over North Bullitt in Class 4-A district action at Hodgenville..

    The Hawks are 5-2 on the season with previous wins over Campbellsville, Green County, Elizabethtown and Glasgow.

    In game one, the Lady Hawks jumped out to early 7-0 and 10-3 leads only to see John Hardin come back to tie it up and surge ahead. The lead seesawed with John Hardin taking a late lead for the win.

  • Seniors shine at last home meet

    Last Thursday was senior night for the LaRue County soccer teams. Ten players were honored.

    The girls gave their signature performance – playing with heart – but came out on the short end with a 2-0 loss. It was not displayed on the scoreboard, but all that were present that night saw the emotions and raw determination on the field.

    Although only a fifth-grade student, Cameron Dawson competed in the regional golf tournament last week.

    He has two years’ experience playing on LaRue County High School’s varsity golf team.

    He’s been playing the sport for six years, partly because he can step into his back yard and he’s practically on the LaRue County Country Club course’s front nine.
