  • Hawks win football season opener

    “... football is about emotion. And from the second half on, I could see emotion,” Coach Rodney Armes told his players as they knelt at midfield at the conclusion of Saturday night’s season opener while taking in their 30-12 victory over Campbellsville in the Forcht Bank Bowl in Campbellsville.

    Offensively, LaRue was led in rushing by Forcht Bank Bowl’s offensive player of the game, sophomore Drew Newberry, who pounded the gridiron for 122 yards rushing and 95 yards in receiving.

  • Eastridge has low score at Fort...

    Despite not having enough girls playing for a team score, LaRue County High School junior Hillary Eastridge claimed low-score honors Thursday over each of her opponents from Fort Knox.

    On the par-36 front nine of Lindsey Golf Course, Eastridge stroked a 47. Fort Knox’s Karen Whitaker was low for the Lady Eagles with a 51.

    “That course plays tough, and Hillary played it really well,” said LaRue’s head coach Rip Collins.


    Knox’s boys, led by Joey Hetrick’s 48, topped the Hawks 211-230 Thursday at Lyndsey.

    Drew Newberry rushed for 122 yards and caught four passes for 95 to spark the Hawk offense.

  • Cross country season begins today

    Running cross country is a grueling and demanding sport. Imagine yourself running five kilometers or 3.1 miles flat out, as hard as you can run. Not many people want to try it.

    LaRue County High School cross country coach Josh Henderson has assembled a team with a few seasoned athletes and several newcomers this season.

    Seniors Ryan Durbin, who competed at State last year, Truman Padgett and Alex Wood are expected to provide leadership. Also returning is junior Spencer Reed.
