  • Henry grounds Hawks in season...

    For one spurt in the fourth quarter of their season opener Saturday night, the LaRue County Hawks saw what they might be later in the season: Caleb Sheffer attacking the rim and getting to the free throw line, Micah Wiseman setting up Cameron Dawson for 3-pointers and a slew of freshmen quickening the pace.

    But as LaRue County coach Paul Childress said, his team has “a long way to go.”

  • Lady Hawks earn win at Classic

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks had one of the state’s top duos the last few seasons, and they’re hoping a new one is in the works with freshmen guards Presley Brown and Mallory Williams.

    The pair looked up to the task Saturday afternoon.

    Brown and Williams combined for 40 points and 18 steals as the Lady Hawks pulled away from visiting Central Hardin, 69-54 in the Corky Cox Classic.

    The Corky Cox Basketball Classic will be held Saturday, Dec. 6 at the LaRue County High School gym.

    This is the third year of the boys’ and girls’ basketball tournament honoring one of LaRue County’s coaching legends.

    Coach Corky Cox accumulated many accolades and accomplishments as a player at Valley High School where he graduated in 1950. He continued his playing days at the University of Louisville where he was voted the team MVP and the most popular player by fans in 1954.

  • Lady Hawks look to soar

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks will undergo some obvious changes this season. The most obvious change will be the absence of two of the most prolific Lady Hawk basketball players in school history. Miss Basketball Ivy Brown has taken her talents to Western Kentucky Universtiy, while Alexis Brewer has transferred to Bardstown High School.

  • Hoop Hawks ready for season

    Ask any veteran basketball coach what is needed for a successful basketball season and one would include talent, size, quickness and a solid basketball IQ. This year’s Hawk basketball team looks to have some of all the ingredients. Time will tell if that develops.
