  • 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.
