    After sleepwalking in a loss to Green County, the 16th-ranked LaRue County Lady Hawks are wide awake now.

    Taylor County went on a 17-2 run in a 5-minute stretch late in the third quarter and early in the fourth quarter to run away from the Hawks for a 71-52 victory.

     The LaRue County Lady Hawks’ 1-2-2 half-court trap is designed to get opponents out of their rhythm on offense and create some easy scoring chances for the Lady Hawks.

    Against 5th Region rival Taylor County on Friday night, it was mission accomplished on both accounts.

    With 6-foot-1 senior forward Ivy Brown on top, the Lady Hawks flustered the Lady Cardinals into 18 turnovers and 32 percent shooting from the field on their way to a 69-37 victory in Hodgenville.
