  • Mat Hawks compete at State Duals...

    The LaRue County High School Mat Hawks are ready to make a run at the school’s fifth dual state championship title Saturday at Henry Clay High School in Lexington. The team has moved up the rankings and find themselves heading into Saturday’s competition as the number two ranked team in the state.

    “Rankings don’t mean much,” said head coach Gary Canter. “It just helps identify some of the better teams in the state but they don’t mean that we are the very best in the state. That is what Saturday is about.”
