    When it comes to sports philosophy some coaches use advance terminology with their teams. But, for the LaRue County Hawks Soccer team it is as simple as “ABCD.” Ability, Belief, Commitment and Dedication is the philosophy the Hawks have adopted this season.

    The Hawks soccer team hopes to improve on a 7-11, 2013 campaign under second-year Head Coach Derek Bell by making the alphabet a part of their daily routine. According to Coach Bell the season should start slow and gain momentum.

    Laura Kudrna, now in her third year as the Lady Hawks head soccer coach, is facing some changes in her youthful team. Gone from last year’s successful team (15-3) are Peyton Gardner, Courtney Johnson, Shelbi Brooks, Abby Modrowski and Sydney Price – who all played key roles in winning the Lady Hawks’ first district championship.

    With change comes challenges. This team will certainly have a totally different dynamic when it begins its season Aug. 18 at John Hardin.

    Head Coach Justin Craft, now in his fourth year, has witnessed the maturation of his young golfers, and looks to have a competitive season within the district and region.

    Madeline Meredith won her division in the 50-meter backstroke in the 12-and-under Kentucky Long Course State Championship with a time of 34.60 seconds. She set another state record for the 9-10 years age group.

    She also took second in the 100-meter backstroke; fourth in the 100-meter butterfly; and fourth in the 100-meter freestyle.

    She took third for overall points.

  • 10U tournament brought 16 top...

    LaRue County hosted the West Kentucky Cal Ripken 10U State Tournament last week, giving residents a chance to enjoy the best of youth league baseball action.

    The LaRue County All-Stars, coached by Jerry McBride, had the three toughest teams – out of 16 – in their pool.

    The team “played hard and was excited to be there,” said McBride, but it wasn’t enough to overpower the eventual two-time state champion – Germantown; Jeffersontown; and three-year finalist Saint Matthews.
