  • Pass-happy E'town preps for...

    Tonight’s LaRue County vs. Elizabethtown high school football game is a contrast in styles.

  • LaRue beats Glasgow 28-24

    For the second consecutive week, late-game heroics propelled LaRue County to a varsity football victory Friday.

    The Hawks defeated Glasgow 28-24. Drew Newberry scored the go-ahead touchdown in the game's final minute.

    Alex Lee gained 143 yards rushing for the Hawks and quarterback Jordan Brewer ran for one touchdown and threw for another.

    LaRue came-from-behind last week to beat Green County 28-27. The latest win improves the Hawks' record to 3-1 on the season.

    LaRue County's three-game road trip concludes Friday, Sept. 25, with a game at Elizabethtown.

  • Soccer Hawks pluck Eagles

    On Sept. 1, the LaRue County Hawks boys' soccer team came out sluggish against the Eagles from Campbellsville, but the boys escaped with a 4-0 blanking at home. 

    Five minutes into the match, Dylan White rocketed his shot into the corner netting with the assist to fellow junior Dillon Walker. The junior attackers were unlucky as they traded passes and shots throughout the first half. The Hawks outshot the Eagles 11-2, in the half, but earned only a 1-0 lead.  Intensity picked up in the second half as the offense pelted the opponents’ goal mouth 12 times.

  • LaRue boys' soccer team...

  • Lady Hawks kick Hart County

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks continued their winning ways Sept. 8 against Hart County. The Lady Hawks won 25-11, 25-27 and 25-7.

    “We played a great first and third set with Hart County tonight. The second set was great as well until we stopped playing to win and started making mistakes,” said Coach Ben Schell.

  • LaRue's girls' soccer...

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks soccer team ventured on a long trip Aug. 31 to Monroe County and emerged victorious, 7-1. So dominating was the victory, the first of the season, that five different players left their mark on the scoreboard.

    Not to be outdone, the middle-school attackers wrestled against the high-school junior varsity and played them to a 1-1 draw.

    Junior Shelby Mouser began the onslaught after receiving a long kick from fellow junior Justine Scroggins. Scroggins took a free kick from midfield and delivered the ball to Mouser’s feet.

  • Hawks defeat Green by 1

    Down to the last seconds, the Hawks pulled together a scoring drive to beat fourth-ranked and undefeated Green County at Greensburg 28-27 with 19.7 seconds on the clock during a  rainy Friday night.

    Hawks coach Rodney Armes gave accolades to both defensive and offensive efforts.

    “Our offensive line did such a tremendous job Friday night,” Armes said, “we ran the ball 95 percent of the time with sophomore Jordan Brewer being the difference maker.”

    Brewer got the nod as the starting quarterback Friday.

  • Soccer leaders emerge

    Within the confines of the LaRue County soccer teams are a tale of two players. One is quiet and unassuming; the other is boisterous and very confident in his abilities. The girl is the emergent leader of a small band of young ladies who play with heart and never quit. The boy is the confident leader of a group of young men who readily challenge anyone to step on their turf.
