  • WRESTLING: Mat Hawks look to...

    The LaRue County Mat Hawks have won four dual state championships, 11 regional championships and numerous tournament titles over the team's 21-year existence, but the team has never won the overall state tournament title. This is the year the coaches hope will end that drought.


    On Saturday, the LaRue County Middle School Mat Hawks traveled to Elkhorn Middle School to compete in a 16-team dual competition. The Mat Hawks finished in third place defeating some top teams in the state in the process.

    “Saturday was a tough competition,” said head coach Dan Heady. “I was proud of the way we competed. We were missing two starters and had an injury during the day which meant we were short-handed for most of the day. The guys battled hard and we had a good showing.”

    Residing on a farm in the Levelwoods area, Sprowles continued the farm operation after his father’s death as well as attended school full time, first at Levelwoods, then at Buffalo High School where he graduated in 1955.
