    With a pair of regular season championships secured, both of LaRue County Middle School’s basketball teams will host their conference tournament games that begin next month.

    The Lady Hawk seventh- and eighth-graders will be at home in the postseason as long as they win thanks to their regular-season success, Coach James “Boo” Brewer said.

  • Bullitt East blanks LaRue 10-0

  • A libero? What’s that?

    The Lady Hawks volleyball team has made great improvements throughout this season. One way they have stepped up their play is by adding the position of a libero.

    A libero wears a different color uniform than the rest of the team. The libero can substitute for anyone in the back row at anytime, and is generally the team’s best passer.

    Senior Kristin Thompson is the libero for the varsity Lady Hawks this season. Thompson, who has been playing volleyball since the seventh grade, is the daughter of Deena and Chris Thompson.

  • Strange excels at Northwestern

    Northwestern senior Courtney Plaster-Strange, a graduate of Kentucky Country Day and daughter of John and Becky Strange of Hodgenville, has been a spark offensively all season for the Northwestern Wildcats’ field hockey team.

    Earlier this month, she was honored as the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week for her performances against Missouri State and St. Joseph’s. Plaster-Strange scored five goals and totaled 11 points in NU’s victories.
