  • Sixth Grade Hawks dominate...

    The LaRue County sixth grade Travel Hawks played in Bardstown last Thursday night to take on my Old Kentucky Home’s sixth grade Middle School team and the Hawks walked away with a 45-37 victory.

    The Hawks jumped out to a 20 to 10 half-time lead and continued building that lead by the end of the third quarter with a 35 to 19 lead. In the fourth quarter a lot of missed opportunities let my Old Kentucky Home back into the ballgame before the Hawks were able to hold off a late rally securing the victory.

  • Fortier competes nationally
  • 7th grade Hawks lose two, 8th...

    As the fifth week of the Boy’s Middle School basketball season rolled around the Hawks found themselves on a short week because of the Thanksgiving holiday.

  • Levi Goodin gets it

    Over the last few years I have had the good fortune to write feature articles focusing on the LCHS athletes who have an impact on their team and their school. I often use quotes or sayings to help the reader gain some perspective on the person I write about. This week I ran across a quote that reads “everything happens for a reason, live it, love it, learn from it! Make your smile change the world, but don’t let the world change your smile.”
