  • LaRue baseball team advances in...

    LaRue County opened its 2009 baseball postseason the same way the team began the regular season - with a one-sided victory over Caverna.

    LaRue County knocked off Caverna 7-0 as the 18th District Tournament opened in Horse Cave. The third win over Caverna this season, the victory also earned the Hawks a spot in the district championship game and a berth in next week's 5th Region Tournament.

    The Hawks will play again at 6 p.m. CDT Tuesday against the winner of Monday's late game between Green County and Hart County.

  • Cox, Mauldin prepare for...

    The Lady Hawks have been led all season by their two seniors, shortstop Christian Cox and second baseman Megan Mauldin. While slightly disappointed with the season that the Lady Hawks have had, the two were looking  forward to postseason play.

    “We’ve put a lot of work into this season. We both do a lot of work on the side preparing for softball like lifting weights, running and working out,” Cox said.

    Mauldin said she was working to improve her speed.

  • Seymour qualifies for state

    LaRue County's Michelle Seymour earned a trip to the state tennis tournament in Lexington.

    Seymour, a freshman, entered the 5th Region Tournament as the fourth-seeded girls' singles player. She lost to Elizabethtown’s Emily Cooper, a sophomore, in semifinals, 6-2, 6-2, last week at University Drive Park. Elizabethtown was the overall team champion with champion Jenna Sallee and Cooper as runner-up. That provided a spot for Seymour to qualify as an individual.

    The state tournament begins Thursday at the University of Kentucky.

  • Hawks upset DuPont Manual

    What a thrill in the "Ville."

    Underdogs from the first pitch, LaRue stunned sixth-ranked DuPont Manual Tuesday in Louisville at historical Derby City Field 2-1.

    Coach Chris Price was more than pleased with the turnout but credited the win to a great practice Monday.

    "That's what happens when we have a good practice," he told his team after the game, "you guys did a great job today."

    It is one of those games that the seniors will be telling their kids about in years to come.
