    After losing five seniors to graduation last season, LaRue’s head basketball coach Paul Childress said fans can expect to see the Hawks have a different look than in the past couple of seasons.

    “We will be quicker and more athletic than the past three years,” he said. “We will have to rely on full court pressure and a more up tempo style.”

    Childress said the team, lacking in size, must rely on blocking out and rebounding.

  • Locke earns Hall of Fame status...

    Tommy Locke never played organized high school sports, but his love for them, especially softball, led to a career of helping as a coach and team sponsor that was rewarded when he was named to the Amateur Softball Association’s Hall of Fame this fall.

    Locke gives all the credit for the honor to the people with whom he associated over the past 30 years.

    One of those people, David Brown, said Locke was successful as a coach and sponsor because he was completely unselfish.
