  • Lady Hawks blank Caverna - twice

    Good pitching and timely hitting is always a good recipe for a successful softball team. The LaRue County Lady Hawks did both in their win over the Caverna Lady Colonels last Wednesday in a 10-run, five-inning victory. 

    LaRue had seven base hits to go along with three walks in scoring the 10 runs. At the same time, Amelia Miller struck out seven batters while allowing just two singles in five innings. 

  • House hot for Mid-Continent

    Senior Alex House, who plays for Mid-Continent University in Mayfield, had five hits in six at-bats last weekend against Martin Methodist College and has a seven-game hitting streak.

    House, a former LaRue County High School baseball standout, is a centerfielder for the Cougars.


  • Hawks win district games

    LaRue County defeated district foes Green County and Caverna in baseball action last week.

    The Hawks outlasted Green 12-11 Tuesday night. Scott Cox hit two three-run home runs to lead LaRue, which overcame five fielding errors in the win.

    LaRue traveled to Caverna on Wednesday and picked up a 14-1 win. Slade Owens and Jay Eastridge had homers for LaRue. Cox was the winning pitcher.

  • Freshman ‘T-baby...

    Tesha Paysen didn’t believe her University of Louisville softball teammate Megan Hornback last week when the catcher told Paysen she had made the Lady Cards’ starting lineup.

    “I never look at the lineup, because I’m a freshman,” said Paysen, a 2008 LaRue County High School graduate. “Megan is a cutup, always joking, and I thought that she was joking this time, too.”

    But when Paysen, nicknamed “T” or “T-baby” by her teammates, took a peek at the lineup, there she was, starting in left field.

  • Hawks struggle in Louisville

    The LaRue County Hawks participated in the Louisville Invitational Tournament last weekend at Pleasure Ridge Park, dropping both games to strong competition.

    In the opener, the Hawks participated in a slugging lottery with Henry Clay only to fall 23-15.

    LaRue’s Slade Owens was chalked with the loss from the mound but no one would have ever thought Henry Clay would scoot 23 runs across the plate.

    “All hitting and no defense or pitching,” LaRue Coach Chris Price said.

  • Tennis teams fall in conference...

    The LaRue County High School tennis team participated in conference play Thursday and Friday with early upsets that saw the boys’ and girls’ tennis teams leaving the tournament early in the bracket seedings.

    LaRue’s Dylan Parr advanced to the second round before being upset in three sets.

    “He played a little inconsistent early but improved throughout the match,” coach Chris Estes said.

    Eighth-grader Ryan Abell also advanced to the second round.

  • Freshmen whip North Hardin and...

    The LaRue County freshman baseball team hosted an invitational last weekend in Hodgenville blanking both North Hardin and Marion County. The Hawks’ only loss was to Male High School.

    In the six-inning format, LaRue’s game with North Hardin was called 10-0 in four innings because of the mercy rule. The Hawks benefited from the aggressive pitching of Kyle Meredith who threw a two-hit shutout.

    Freshman Stephen Carter was 1-1 with two walks complimented by teammate Jesse Johnson who was 3-3 at the plate scoring three runs.

  • Tennis teams defeat Bardstown,...

    The LaRue County tennis teams improved their records last week with wins over both Bardstown and Campbellsville.    

    Head coach Chris Estes started the season with a very young team that has continuously improved – placing LaRue in a strong position tournament time.

    The boys’ team (4-3) defeated Bardstown 4-1; the girls (3-3) won 5-0.

    In singles, Dylan Parr claimed an easy victory for the Hawks, 6-2, 6-0. Caleb Canter won his match 8-3.

  • Poor hitting plagues Lady Hawks...

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks softball team faced three very strong opponents last week in Central Hardin, Hart County and Nelson County, winning one game and losing two. 

    Poor hitting continues to be a soft spot, as the Lady Hawks scored a total of seven runs in three games.
