    Good outside shooting from senior Christian Seymour and some timely late baskets from Tyler Hornback led the LaRue County Hawks to defeat the Central Hardin Bruins. The win brought the Hawks to 12-0 for the season.

  • Mat Hawks defeat top-ranked...

    The LaRue County Mat Hawks defeated the top-ranked team in the state at the Central Hardin Duals Saturday.

    Defending state champion Union County bypassed Trinity in the polls for the top spot in the state just four days before heading to the duals. Union County, loaded with seniors, was defeated 36-37 by the youthful LaRue grapplers.

    The coaching staff scheduled the hardest tournaments early in the season in hopes of aging a very young wrestling team.

    Sophomore guard Valerie Whitlock paced LaRue County with 15 points, while eighth-grade guard Anna Bowling chipped in with 14 points.

    Valerie Whitlock hit two three-pointers in the third frame and cemented a solid 46-24 lead.

    “I knew we’d be a bit sluggish,” said LaRue Coach Travis Wootton. “We haven’t played in a week.”

    But Wootton was pleased with his team’s domination in the third quarter.

  • Seventh-grade ladies are...

    The future is bright for the Lady Hawks’ basketball program. The seventh-grade team had a perfect season, finishing with a 28-0 record. The girls worked extremely hard over the summer playing in many games and AAU competitions with Coach James “Boo” Brewer. They abided by the motto set for them, “Work Hard, Play Harder.”

    The team started its season with an overtime victory at Nelson County. That was the closest any team came to beating them as they ran away with most of their games. The Lady Hawks’ victories averaged 21 points per game.

  • Mat Hawks beat all region foes

    It was total domination for the LaRue County Mat Hawks at the first regional duals last weekend. The Mat Hawks went 7-0 with a big win over sixth-ranked John Hardin, 48-17.

    Mat Hawks coach, Gary Canter, who is usually reserved in praise of his wrestlers, had a hard time finding much wrong with his team. 

    “It was a good weekend,” said Canter. “We did quite a few things right and looked the best we have looked this season. We will see if we can continue that in Pigeon Forge this week.”
