  • When opportunity knocks, Adkins...

    Very few athletes at the high school level get opportunities to compete in varsity competition. When opportunity knocks, it’s up to the athletes to open the door. This is the case for freshman LCHS Hawks boys basketball player Anthony Adkins, who has been in the Hawks starting lineup for a majority of the season.

  • Fund set up to honor Daniel...

    A former LaRue County Wrestler standout is being remembered by his family to raise funds to help the Mat Hawks with much needed equipment.

    Daniel Parker, a 2004 LaRue County High School graduate, wrestled for the LaRue County Hawks for 6 years. In November of 2008, Parker died in a car accident. His family has decided to honor his upcoming 30th birthday by creating a Go Fund Me account to raise funds for the current LaRue County wrestling team.

  • All business, no show

    Mark Twain once said “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” For junior wrestler Stiles Metcalf, the size of the fight has rarely been an issue.

    At 5-6 120 pounds, Metcalf takes a different approach to his matches than the typical wrestler. Most all wrestlers can be seen warming up anxiously, running around, jumping up and down and sometimes slapping themselves in the legs or hips. Not so for the unassuming Metcalf who approaches every match with a business-like attitude.
