  • 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.

  • LaRue derailed by Bethlehem

    LaRue County advanced to the semifinals of the 5th Region Volleyball Tournament before dropping a straight set decision Wednesday night against Bethlehem.

    Both games ended in identical 25-14 scores.

    The Lady Hawks, who were runners up in the district tournament last week, finish the season with a record of 23-16.

    LaRue reached the semifinals with a straight set victory Tuesday night over Marion County. The Lady Hawks won 25-20, 25-21 in the final first-round tournament match at Green County High School.

  • Marion runs by LaRue 33-7

    LaRue County dropped its first district football game to fifth-ranked Marion County Friday night 33-7 at home in nasty, wet conditions in Hodgenville.

    The Knights, known for their aggressive running attack led by Dylan Peterson, came in to Hodgenville appearing evenly matched.

    “It’s like looking at yourself in the mirror when you ask about Marion,” Assistant Coach Kelly Sandidge said, “It was a matter of whoever won the trenches won the game.”

  • Lady Hawks earn place in...

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks volleyball team came out firing on all cylinders against the Hart County Lady Raiders Monday night, Oct. 12, winning in straight sets 25-16 and 25-22. 

    “This is a big win for our program as it now qualifies us for the regional tournament for the fourth consecutive year,” Coach Ben Schell said. “We aren’t satisfied simply getting to the district championship game, though. Our kids set the goal early on this season of winning our first district championship.” 

  • Green wins girls’ golf...

    Green County won the girls' state golf championship Sunday at Bowling Green Country Club with a combined score of 689, which was seven strokes better than second-place Sacred Heart.

    St. Xavier won the boys' team title earlier in the week by one stroke over Lexington Christian. Henry Clay was third, followed by Elizabethtown High.

    The Leachman/KHSAA State Golf Tournaments were held at Bowling Green Country Club.
