  • Golf team finishes strong at...

    Head Coach Justin Craft and the LaRue County High School boys’ golf team had plenty to smile about last Tuesday as they were able to post their best finish in 18 years.

    LaRue County finished fourth out of 18 full teams. The last time the golf team finished this high in the region was with a championship in 1996.

  • LaRue County Cross Country hosts...

    The LaRue County High School cross country team hosted the sixth annual Jack Mitchell Invitational Thursday on their home course. The meet is named for long time LaRue County Track and Field Coach Jack Mitchell who continues to assist with practices and encourage runners.

    The meet has continued to grow each year with 17 teams participating in the event. Coaches for LaRue County are Jim B. Phelps and Jackie Harley.

    John Hardin captured first place in both the boys and girls varsity division of 5,000 meters.

  • Hawks hold off Lakers for 14-10...

    After six games in the books the LaRue County Football team has established an identity. They are young, energetic, and have a blue collar work ethic. All six games have proven that these Hawks are competitive and desire to get better each week.

    Last Friday the Hawks traveled to Russell Springs to battle the Lakers of Russell County who were seeking their first win of the season on homecoming night.

    It was a shaky start to what seemed like a beautiful night for football. The very first possessions for each team resulted in a turnover.

  • Dawson wins 5th Region Golf...

    LaRue County sophomore Cameron Dawson finished first out of 93 golfers Tuesday to capture the 5th Region Golf Tourney at Elizabethtown Country Club with an even par 72. In 2013 he walked away with a region runner-up at South Park Golf Course in Louisville, therefore he was one of six individuals expected to win this year’s tourney.

    Cameron is the first LaRue County golfer to win the region since Chad Hines did it in 1997. With the tournament win, Dawson qualified for the KHSAA State Golf Tourney in back-to-back seasons.

  • FOOTBALL: Hawks win on the road

    After finding ways to lose three straight weeks, the LaRue County Hawks found a way to win. On the road, no less.

    The Hawks kept the Russell County Lakers scoreless on all eight of their possessions and senior Koy Lindsey’s fumble recovery on the Lakers’ final offensive play gave the Hawks three turnovers as LaRue County held on, 14-10.

    Junior running back Marquis Franklin broke the LaRue County Hawks Football record of longest play from scrimmage when he was able to take the ball 99 yards on the first play from scrimmage Sept. 26 at Marion County. The previous record of 96 yards from scrimmage was held by Chris Singleton and Justin Thurman during the 2005 season. Franklin also now shares the 99-yard record with 16 other players from across the state since 1972.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Hawks defeat...

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks inched closer to the .500 mark with a 3-0 win (25-7, 25-22, 25-8) win over visiting 18th District rival Hart County on Sept. 29.

    Sophomore outside hitter Cidney Neagle led the Lady Hawks (12-13, 4-1 district) with 10 kills, four aces, one block and one dig, while junior middle hitter Chloe Owen added seven aces, six digs and five kills.

  • COLUMN: Airsoft gun incident...

     The only sounds that Kentucky football’s Class of 2014 was supposed to cause were Air Raid sirens and cheering on Saturday afternoons.

    Now, after Sunday night, four of them (Dorian Baker, Stanley Boom Williams, Drew Barker and Tymere Dubose) will instead be known for the sound of three airsoft guns being shot into the air in the middle of South Campus, and the subsequent pinging of 30,000 students’ cell phones alerting them to a campus-wide lockdown.

  • GOLF: Dawson finishes strong to...

    LaRue County sophomore Cameron Dawson’s day at the Boys’ 5th Region Golf Tournament didn’t get off to a good start, but he couldn’t have envisioned a better ending.

    Dawson rebounded from a bogey on his first hole to fire an even-par 72 to win the tournament Sept. 30 at Elizabethtown Country Club. He became the first LaRue County golfer to win the region since Chad Hines in 1997.
