  • LaRue wins eighth straight...

    For the eighth consecutive year, LaRue County is the champion of the 18th District Baseball Tournament.

    The Hawks have won the district title every year since 2002. This year's edition of the team defeated Green County 3-2 Tuesday at Horse Cave to extend the streak.

    It has been an up-and-down season for the Hawks, who enter next week's 5th Region Tournament with a 15-14 record overall. Coach Chris Price's team was unbeaten in seven games against district opponents and 10-4 against 5th Region teams.

  • Lady Hawks raid Hart, earn spot...

    The Lady Hawks began 18th District play Monday with a 10-3 win over Hart County at Caverna.

    “It was just a great team win,” Coach Mielle DiStefano said. “Anytime you can utilize 14-15 players, and they all help in one way or another, you know it’s a good night. I like the way we kept our composure after the first. Ellen Huff just came up big for us.”

    LCHS was not as successful in Tuesday's softball championship game. For the fourth time in five years, Green County defeated the Lady Hawks in the title match. The final score was 4-1..

  • Venegas, Jakes excel at middle...

    Eighth-grader Jackson Venegas and seventh-grader Ramisha Jakes were LaRue County’s top performers in the middle school state track championships.

    Venegas’ throw of 118 feet, 2 inches in the discus competition was good for third place in the boys’ competition.

    Jakes tied for fifth place in the girls’ high jump in the May 9 meet at Paul Dunbar High School in Lexington. Her winning distance for 4 feet, 4 inches.

    Their performances accounted for all of the team’s points, which were awarded based on top finishes in the events.

  • Hawks blank Caverna to advance...

    Senior Tyler Hornback drove a fastball over the fence in left field leading his LaRue County Hawks team to a 7-0 win over Caverna in the district tournament opener Monday night at Caverna High School in Horse Cave.

    LaRue has won five straight district titles and has high hopes of making it six straight. But this LaRue County team has depended on the “small ball” type offense and has found themselves struggling at times defensively.

    Monday night, the Hawks were executing on both sides of the ball.

  • 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.
