    LaRue County turkey hunters harvested 241 birds.

  • Hawks falter before district play


    LaRue baseball coach Chris Price wanted to use the last week of the season to take momentum into the district tournament. But the Hawks struggled in their five-game stint defeating only Campbellsville.
