  • LCHS drops two games

    The LaRue County High volleyball team went down in defeat last week against Elizabeth­town and Nelson County in straight sets.

    Elizabethtown won 25-14 and 25-22 and Nelson County won in a much tougher match 25-23 and 31-29.

    “We just couldn’t get going against E’town,” Coach Ben Schell said. “The first set was a disaster and when we finally started playing better in the second set, it was too late.  E’town did a great job of attacking the ball from the outside and we had trouble defending it all night.”

  • Hawks smash North Bullitt in...

    Delaying the LaRue County-North Bullitt varsity football game by 24 hours provided a more pleasant atmosphere for fans and much drier field for the players.

    LaRue's Alex Lee led the Hawks' potent running attack Saturday night. The junior rushed for a game-high 198 yards and three touchdowns as LaRue recorded a 42-6 win over North Bullitt in Class 4-A district action at Hodgenville..

    The Hawks are 5-2 on the season with previous wins over Campbellsville, Green County, Elizabethtown and Glasgow.

    In game one, the Lady Hawks jumped out to early 7-0 and 10-3 leads only to see John Hardin come back to tie it up and surge ahead. The lead seesawed with John Hardin taking a late lead for the win.

  • Seniors shine at last home meet

    Last Thursday was senior night for the LaRue County soccer teams. Ten players were honored.

    The girls gave their signature performance – playing with heart – but came out on the short end with a 2-0 loss. It was not displayed on the scoreboard, but all that were present that night saw the emotions and raw determination on the field.
