  • Dylan Parr named Sophomore of...

    Dylan Parr was a crucial piece in LaRue County’s first region tennis title in 2008.

    This season, he was the only piece of that puzzle to return.

    In a completely foreign situation, Parr still managed to shine, garnering a No. 3 seed in the conference tournament and a No. 6 seed in the region tournament.

    Area coaches took notice of Parr’s success and voted him Sophomore of the Year.

    “Oh man, that’s unbelievable,” Parr said. “It’s just amazing to win.”

  • Honors keep coming for Lady Hawks

    The accolades keep coming for recent graduate and Lady Hawk Christian Cox.

    Cox was named to second team All-State in Class 2A fast-pitch softball Sunday.

    “This is another great accomplishment to end her high school career,” said Lady Hawk coach Mielle DiStefano.

    “Anytime our program can get attention on the state level, you know our program is doing something right.”

    Cox, the daughter of Mike and Joy Cox, joins an “elite list of Lady Hawks who have made either first team or second team all state,” DiStefano said.

  • Football field refurbished

    In preparation for the football season, the field at LaRue County High School is being prepared for a fresh stand of grass.

  • Officials complying with new...

    No one at LaRue County Schools is arguing that the new law requiring high school coaches to complete a sports safety course on how to prevent common injuries is not beneficial. 

    The cost of complying with HB 383, however, has raised some concerns.

    “For every coach to attend a medical symposium could cost the school in excess of $700 every two years,” said LaRue County High School athletic director David Dawson. “This will be seen as a necessary cost, however, to provide a safer environment for our athletes.”
