  • Padgett places at state meet

    On the strength of Truman Padgett's performances, LaRue County recorded five points in the Class 2A Boys' State Track Meet held Friday and Saturday at the University of Louisville’s Owsley Brown Frazier Cardinal Park.

  • 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.

    Price said LaRue struggled defensively at times and wanted to see better hitting.

    “We had a hard time fielding the ball this week and making routine plays,” Price said, “but we’ll be all right.”

    May 11, LaRue visited Campbellsville High School and was stunned in the seventh by a go ahead two run effort 4-3.

  • Volleyball team offers all-...

    The Lady Hawks volleyball team will host an all-skills camp for girls through eighth grade 8-11 a.m. June 8-9 at LaRue County High School.

    Registration is $40 and includes a T-shirt. Deadline to register is May 29.

    Pick up forms at Hodgenville Elementary, Abraham Lincoln Elementary and LaRue County Middle schools. Return forms to Coach Ben Schell at LCHS (358-2210) or Lisa DeWitt at LaRue Insurance (358-3101).

  • Lady Hawks smash John Hardin


    The Lady Hawks dropped a game against Campbellsville May 14, 10-4.

    It was a game of stark contrast. The Lady Hawks started out the game in good form, scoring one run in the third inning, one in the fourth and two in the fifth. The game turned 180 degrees, though, in the sixth inning when the Campbellsville Eagles scored nine runs.

  • Lady Hawks fall in first round...

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks softball season came to an abrupt end Monday at the Fifth Region Tournament at North Hardin High School. The Nelson County Lady Cardinals beat the Lady Hawks 4-0 in the opening round. 

    Amelia Miller pitched seven strong innings striking out six batters while giving up only one earned run in the loss. Costly errors in the first and third innings by the Lady Hawks and a timely triple by Lady Cardinal catcher Sarah Beth Gillis, accounted for three of the four runs. 

  • Seymour wins first match at state

    Freshman Michelle Seymour is the first LaRue County girls’ tennis player to win a match at the KHSAA State Tournament.

    Seymour coasted through her first match at the Lexington meet, defeating Emily McKenzie of Morgan County 6-2, 6-2.

    “Michelle defeated a very skilled athlete,” Coach Chris Estes said. “I consider this her best win of the season.”

    Estes was watching warm-ups and thought her first match was going to be more of a challenge but she pulled through it.

  • Hawks win district, drop to E...

    Make it eight straight.
