    Having a strong right arm has benefited Michelle Burroughs not only as a Lady Hawks softball outfielder but also as a member of LaRue County High School’s golf team.

    “I think it has helped me with my strongest part of my game, which is my driver, woods and long irons,” said the 17-year-old senior. 

    Though an upperclassman, this is only her second year on the team.

  • Soccer Hawks undefeated in first...

    LaRue County's boys' soccer team has had a successful first week of the season. Playing four varsity matches and two junior varsity matches in six days, the Hawks emerged unbeaten at the varsity level and junior varsity.

    Albeit the Hawks have played varsity soccer for three years, the team has not competed in a district/region environment. That has changed this year, and the first two district opponents were met with anxiety.

    The Hawks held their own against Bardstown, a seasoned team with 12 seniors and seven returning starters. The result was a 0-0 draw.

  • Lady Hawks defeat Hart in...

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks volleyball team split two matches this past week with a win on Tuesday against Hart County, but then a hard loss to Marion County on Thursday.

  • Hawks win football season opener

    “... football is about emotion. And from the second half on, I could see emotion,” Coach Rodney Armes told his players as they knelt at midfield at the conclusion of Saturday night’s season opener while taking in their 30-12 victory over Campbellsville in the Forcht Bank Bowl in Campbellsville.

    Offensively, LaRue was led in rushing by Forcht Bank Bowl’s offensive player of the game, sophomore Drew Newberry, who pounded the gridiron for 122 yards rushing and 95 yards in receiving.
