  • Hawks too hot for Warren Central...

    The LaRue County Hawks are on a roll.

     The Lady Hawks used hot bats, strong defense and solid teamwork to open their season March 18 with a sound defeat (13-2) of visiting Adair County.

    LaRue put away the Lady Indians in five innings.

    Coach Rocky Cundiff said he couldn’t ask for the opener to go any better.

    Fortunately for Cundiff, her Lady Hawks teammates had no such issues.

    Junior second baseman Delany Eastridge was a home run short of the cycle and was 1-of-3 LaRue County players with at least three RBIs as the Lady Hawks pounded out 14 hits in a 12-0 rout of the host Lady Bulldogs in five innings.
