  • One more time for old time'...

    It’s tough to heed the words of Father Time and walk away from something you love. Sometimes, you get that itch so bad you can’t help but give it another go, just to see if you still can.

    So that’s just what happened when Junior Sidebottom started calling up some of his friends from back in the day to see if they wanted take another swing at glory in the Thursday night men’s softball league at the Culvertown Park.

  • Junior Golf Tourney

    LaRue County High School freshman Cameron Lasley shot 41-34-75 to finish second in the 14-15 age category and second overall at the Louisville Metro Parks Junior Golf Tournament at Crescent Hill golf course. His 34 was the low 9-hole score of the day. He had an eagle and three birdies on the day.

  • Benefits of playing multiple...

    LaRue County High School Athletics has experienced success over the last 50 years due in large part to the sharing of athletes. In a school such as LCHS, it is necessary for coaches to encourage athletes to play more than one sport.

    Playing multiple sports is something that I, along with many others, did in this community simply because there was very little else to do. I believe we still have a healthy number of our athletes participate in more than one sport even though there are numerous other opportunities available to them.

  • Dawson wins 21-player golf...

    Cameron Dawson, a LaRue County High School sophomore, shot a 4-under 32 on the front nine and finished with a 1-under 70 to win the 21-player boys’ championship division at the Musselman-Dunne Golf Tour stop at the 6,247-yard, par-71 Oldham County Country Club in LaGrange.

  • Youth Baseball update

     The Meade County 12-year-old All-Stars scored four runs in the third inning and held on to beat LaRue County, 6-4 on Tuesday in the Cal Ripken District 7 Tournament at University Drive Park in Elizabethtown.

    Trailing 5-1 in the bottom of the fifth, LaRue County cut its deficit to 5-4 as Wyatt Pearman had a two-run double and Bryson Arnette hit a two-run homer.

    But Meade County tacked on an insurance run in the sixth.

  • Caven is runner-up at Tennis Open

    Colin Hart, a KHSAA All-State selection this past season at Lincoln County, won the State Farm E’town Tennis Open Sunday at Freeman Lake Park.

    For the second year, Hart fended off Campbellsville University coach Kyle Caven, a former LaRue County prep star, to claim the singles championship.

    Caven, playing in his fourth match of the day, made Hart work hard to defend his title in Hart’s 6-4, 4-6, 1-0 (10-6) win in the 16-player division.

  • LCHS Students benefit from after...

    When I was growing up, my mom and dad always told my brother, sister and myself to “go find something to do outside.” Anyone reading this article probably has been told the same as a youngster. We typically did so by shooting basketball, throwing baseball and football, and running up and down the street. This led to a genuine interest for me to be involved in extracurricular activities during my 12 years in school, and on the collegiate level.
