  • Last-minute fumble halts Hawks...

    A fumble with less than two minutes remaining in the football game spelled disaster for LaRue County as Bullitt East scored on the errant play to win the Class 4A, District Four fight 22-19 Friday at Hodgenville.

    Before the miscue, LaRue (3-6, 0-3) was in the driver’s seat. Leading 19-14 and on fourth down, the Hawks needed only one yard to keep their drive alive at the Chargers’ 11 and likely seal the win.

  • Smith's late start at...

    It was love at first sight for Marty Smith.

    The object of that affection? A tennis trophy.

    Three years ago, a friend, Larry Milby, invited him to a tournament organized through the Central Kentucky Tennis Series. Smith was happily surprised when he and his partner Tim Bullock, a Campbellsville University professor, won their division. 

    As happy as he was with the victory, he was captivated by the sport when the trophies were presented. His eyes fixed on a 12-inch award depicting a tennis player, racket in hand, poised for a slam return.

  • Kicker says success is a...

    How long is one and one-half seconds?

    It’s over before the average heart at rest beats twice, or before a person (especially one of us Southerners) can comfortably say, “Happy birthday!”

    Yet, in that short span of time in football, the center must snap the ball, the holder must catch and position it, and the kicker must step into and send the ball hurling toward the goal posts.

  • LaRue can't edge E'town

    LaRue garnered over two times the rushing yardage (412-184) and held possession of the ball almost three times longer (34 minutes to 14), but Elizabethtown came away with a 49-27 high school varsity football victory at Hodgenville Friday.

    "I thought we executed our game plan pretty well, which was to keep the ball out of their hands," said LaRue Coach Rodney Armes. "We just made some crucial mistakes--missed a fourth and short, third and goal--which we've got to cut down on."

  • LaRue's volleyball team...

    After losing the first game, 13-25, LaRue rallied to win the second 25-23 before Nelson County pulled away in the final set 25-17 to claim a high school varsity volleyball victory at Hodgenville Thursday.

    “We were much more aggressive in the second game than we were in the first,” explained Ben Schell, LaRue’s coach. “Nelson County is a very good attacking team and we threw off their attack by forcing them into making bad first passes.”

    Schell praised his team’s game two effort.

  • Shorthanded Lady Hawks defeat...

    The hazards of fall break are many, but there is no dilemma worse than opting between family vacation and school obligation. That is the problem facing most student-athletes during the fall term. Tack on injuries; sprained ankles, sore muscles and a team’s roster can be depleted very quickly. Then, you have to face a team on Senior Night. The results could be horrendous but not for the LaRue County High School girl’s soccer team on Oct. 7.

  • Hawks football team falls to...

    Elizabethtown's Cory Withers scored three short yardage touchdowns and LaRue County was stopped twice at the one-yard line as the visiting Panthers won 49-27 in Friday night's high school football game.

    LaRue County accounted for 515 yards of total offense but three first-half fumbles foiled the Hawks efforts.

    LaRue is now 3-5 on the season. The final home game of the regular season is next Friday night against Class 4A district opponent Bullitt East which is 3-4 on the year.
