  • Hawks fall in District play

     Monday night had a similar feeling to one year ago, but unfortunately for the LaRue County Hawks, the ending wasn’t nearly as fulfilling.

    Trailing third-seeded Hart County by a run in the bottom of the seventh inning, second-seeded LaRue County put two on with two out, but freshman Cameron Dawson’s fly ball was caught in deep center field for the final out to give the Raiders a 4-3 victory in the 18th District Tournament semifinals at Green County American Legion Park.

  • Lady Hawks break Hart in...

     The LaRue County Lady Hawks won their semifinal Monday in the 18th District Softball Tournament. They defeated the third-seeded Hart County Lady Raiders, 13-8, at Green County.

    Senior Courtney Johnson hit a two-run home run and drove in four runs.

    “We knew this could be our last game,” Johnson said. “As seniors, we want to play out our season as long as we can. We didn’t want it to end tonight.”

    Thanks in part to Johnson, it didn’t.

  • Girls' Sweet Sixteen moving

    The tourism community remains optimistic despite news that the KHSAA Girls’ Sweet Sixteen basketball tournament won’t be coming to Bowling Green in 2016-17.

    Vicki Fitch, executive director of the Bowling Green Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, said there will be other opportunities for Bowling Green to bring in large crowds.

    “Of course we’re disappointed ... but we have other KHSAA events we’re securing,” Fitch said.

  • BASEBALL: Hawks beat North

    For such a young team, losing a plethora of close games has been somewhat demoralizing for the LaRue County Hawks.

    Thanks to senior Kody Key-Close, the host Hawks finally got one to go their way Monday.

    Facing a five-man infield, Key-Close’s line drive to center field was just over the outstretched glove of North Hardin sophomore A.J. Morales to score freshman Cameron Dawson and give LaRue County a 3-2 walkoff win in nine innings.
