  • Hawks advance in playoffs

    Small things can make a big difference in football.

    Extra points seem virtually automatic in professional and college football. In the Class 4A playoff win last Friday, successful point-after tries made the difference on the scoreboard as the Hawks defeated Valley High 35-32.

    Bo Haun was five for five following LaRue County scores. Valley had no kicking option and went for two after each score and the Hawk defense prevented most of the efforts.

    Still the game had tense moments as the host Jefferson County school came from behind to challenge the Hawks.

  • LaRue looks for revenge Friday...

    Whether on offense or defense, expect LaRue County to key on No. 27 Friday night as round two of the high school football playoffs begin.

    Marion County senior Dylan Peterson wears that uniform and did more than his share of damage when the Knights beat LaRue 33-7 on Oct. 16.

    Peterson clipped the Hawks for 115 yards on 14 carries, including two scores. On defense, he led his team with four solo tackles and nine assists.

  • Middle school teams claim...

    LaRue County Middle School recorded twin basketball championships Thursday.

    The seventh- and eighth-grade girls’ basketball teams won the Central Kentucky Middle School Athletic Conference tournament titles. LaRue also won the regular season championships, which earned the Hawks the right to host its tournament games.

    The 46-31 win over Adair County for the eighth-grade team capped another extraordinary season. The team was 23-2 and the current eighth-graders have a two-year middle school record of 53-2.

  • LaRue advances in football...

    LaRue County's ground game churned out a 35-32 playoff victory Friday night against host Valley High School in Ciass 4A football playoff action.

    The Hawks entered the playoffs as a No. 3 seed and traveled to southern Jefferson County for the game.

    The victory extends the season. LaRue will play at Marion County next Friday. The Knights defeated Breckinridge County 64-14.

    LaRue is now 7-4 on the season.


  • Senior Night honorees listed

    At the final home football game of the season Friday, Oct. 30, senior members of the football team plus other fall sports were honored along with their parents. Band members and cheerleaders also were recognized.

  • LCMS girls win twin titles

    LaRue County Middle School won dual championships Thursday night.

    The Lady Hawks' basketball teams won the seventh- and eighth-grade conference tournament title games held at LCMS.

    LaRue trailed for much of the seventh-grade game before rallying to defeat Taylor County 31-23. The eighth-graders broke their game open with a 11-4 third quarter run en route to a 46-31 win over Adair County.

  • LCMS wraps up football season

    The LaRue County Middle School football season came to a close Oct. 20 as the team entered playoffs against Green County, where they lost in the first round.

    “Russell and Green counties are always very tough teams within our conference,” coach Jeremy Blair said. “They are well-coached and it seems that they eat, drink and sleep football around those parts. They have a culture of winning, and that breeds excellence.”
