  • Wrestlers take tumble at Rumble

    The Ryle Raider Rumble always has been a tough wrestling tournament, but this year exceeded expectations in terms of difficulty. LaRue County’s young Mat Hawks didn’t respond as well as their head coach, Gary Canter, had hoped.

    “We had more wrestlers in the championship round than last year,” said Canter, “we had more wrestlers in the consolation championship rounds, we scored more points than last year and finished higher than last year, but I just feel as if this team struggled this past weekend. This was a C- performance in my mind.”

  • Lady Hawks will rely on teamwork...

    Lady Hawks’ varsity basketball coach Travis Wootton has at least three reasons why he thinks this year’s team will be competitive – experience, a voracious hunger for victory and a compelling desire to win.

    “Not just to win, but to win for each other,” said Wootton, who has coached for 10 years. “They are a team; no individuals.”

    The coach said everyone is back from last year’s young team that completed an 8-18 season, losing to Green County 76-59 in the 18th District Tournament’s first round in February.
