  • Lady Hawks reflect on softball...

    The Lady Hawks softball team (16-16) ended their season last week in the first round of the 5th Region Tourney to Central Hardin. Although they did not end their season the way they wanted to, there is a lot to be proud of for the Lady Hawks.

    Fifth-year Head Coach Aaron Howell said the season was “one of highs and lows.” Those highs started early as the Lady Hawks won seven out of their first nine games. One of those losses was to the defending State Champion, Greenwood’s Lady Gators, 2-5.

  • Hawk baseball has a bright future

     Leading into the 2014 baseball campaign, Hawks’ second-year head coach Eric Allen knew he would have a challenge replacing six seniors with a young group of players coming up. This was nothing new. When he acquired the job in 2013, he had to replace eight seniors.

    Junior Koy Lindsey and freshman Cameron Dawson were the only full-time starters from the 2013 squad, while sophomore Colby Skaggs and senior Dylon Hedgespeth also saw action at the varsity level.  

  • Lady Hawks end season as...

     The Lady Hawks became the 18th District runners-up Tuesday, falling 8-7 to the top-seeded Green County Lady Dragons in the championship game.

    The Lady Hawks held a four-run lead in the seventh inning – but Green County cut the lead to two against junior starting pitcher Emillee Cundiff.

    Lady Hawks coach Aaron Howell called on senior Brigitte Skaggs to close it out.

    Green County drew two bases-loaded walks off Skaggs to rally for an 8-7 win at Green County American Legion Park.

  • Annual golf tournament honors...

     About 100 people competed Monday in the annual General Bob Cundiff Golf Tournament at the LaRue County Golf Course near Buffalo. 

    The annual Memorial Day event, named in honor of Brigadier General (Ret.) Robert W. Cundiff of Hodgenville, began a year after Cundiff’s death in 2005.

    Organizers were pleased with the attendance.

    “This is the best turnout we’ve had by far,” said Keith Bault, longtime member of the golf course. “We usually have about 60.”

  • Adam Sandidge takes third at...

    LaRue County senior Adam Sandidge had an excellent showing last weekend in the 1,600-meter at the Class 2-A State Track and Field Championships at the University of Kentucky’s Shively Track Complex.

    He placed third in the 1,600-meter and sixth in the 3,200, accumulating enough points to take 25th place overall for the team.

  • REGION SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks take...

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks’ goal this season wasn’t just to get to the 5th Region Softball Tournament in Munfordville, but the state tournament in Owensboro.

    Before earning a spot at State though, the Lady Hawks knew the fourth-ranked Central Hardin Lady Bruins would be in their way.

  • DISTRICT SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks...

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks’ backs were against the wall.

    Top-seeded Green County pushed across two runs and had loaded the bases against junior starting pitcher Emillee Cundiff, slicing LaRue County’s four-run lead to two in the bottom of the seventh inning, so Lady Hawks coach Aaron Howell called on senior Brigitte Skaggs to close it out.
