    “We like to come up here to LaRue County and compete,” said Will West of Bowling Green High School. “The people here are real friendly and the competition is excellent. This allows us to determine how we measure up to other teams around the state.”

    “I tried to throw strikes and get ahead in the count,” Cox said. “It was a fun and challenging outing.”

    The Hawks backed up his pitching efforts with good base running and some key hits that helped put Grayson away.

  • LaRue County will host Wooden...

    The LaRue County High School baseball team will host a unique tournament Friday and Saturday. Only wooden bats will be used.

    The KHSAA allows high school teams to use aluminum bats but in this case, each team will receive wooden bats to the round-robin event.

    Somerset, DeSales and Adair County will visit Hodgenville for the Wooden Bat Classic, sponsored by Nall's Specialized Healing.

    LCHS is hosting the event for the first time although the Hawks have participated in similar wooden bat events at other locations.
