    Gov. Steve Beshear signed HB 383 into law. The new law includes a measure that requires high school coaches to complete a sports safety course on how to prevent common injuries.

    “This is an important piece of legislation that I hope will protect the health and safety of our student athletes,” Beshear said. “I applaud the sponsors for their efforts to protect our students from the dangers of heatstroke, illness and injuries incurred while participating in sporting events through the bill’s requirements for proper training and equipment.”

  • Tennis team defeats North Hardin

    The LaRue County High School tennis team opened its season with a win over North Hardin, followed by a pair of losses.

    “Our team really looked good against a North Hardin team, winning all our matches and played good against two regional powerhouse teams,” said tennis coach Chris Estes. “We just couldn’t come up with a win.”

  • Lady Hawks win opening game

    If the first regular season game is any indication, the LaRue County Lady Hawks softball season promises to be an exciting one. Behind seven strong innings from freshman pitcher Amelia Miller and some timely hitting from the offense, the Lady Hawks pulled out a 3-2 victory over a top 25 Edmonson County team.

  • Hawks show no mercy on Caverna...

    It was off to sunny Florida for the LaRue County High School baseball team as they participate in the Florida Beach Bash all this week.

    LaRue will play against a field of mostly  Kentucky teams. They dropped their first game Sunday against Lexington Lafayette 8-2.

    “We used five of our pitchers and did it really to see what some of the guys looked like on the mound while we were down here and learned a lot about them,” Coach Chris Price said.

  • Girls' softball signups...

    Girls’ youth softball sign-ups will be 6-8 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday at LaRue County Parks and Recreation.

  • Aggression and hot bats key to...

    The LaRue County baseball season went into full swing Tuesday with a win over district foe Caverna.

    Head coach Chris Price said the Hawks have been working hard on their hitting and running. They hope to make a run on a district title and then have their sights on the regional prize.

    “I feel our hitting is pretty good,” Coach Price said, “but we’re going to have to bring our pitching along a little.”

    LaRue will be depending on Lane Smith, Scott Cox, Justin Chelf and Slade Owens to start the season in the rotation order respectively.

    The Lady Hawks won their softball opener Monday against Edmonson County, 3-2.

    Valerie Whitlock singled twice and scored two runs, while Megan Mauldin and Christian Cox each singled.

    The Lady Hawks lost 9-2 at North Hardin on Tuesday. Weather permitting, the team is scheduled to play Thursday at Hart County and Friday at Caverna before taking a Florida trip during spring break.

    The team’s next home game is April 13 against Elizabethtown High School.
