  • BASKETBALL: LaRue locks up top...

     Ivy Brown didn’t just do a little bit of everything to get the LaRue County Lady Hawks back on track Sunday afternoon – the senior forward did a lot of everything.

    Coming off its first 18th District loss in nearly two years, LaRue County rebounded behind Brown’s 28 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists to top visiting Caverna, 67-45.

    Just two days after a slow start plagued them in a one-point loss to Green County, the Lady Hawks led by 13 after the first quarter and kept the lead in double digits throughout.

  • BASKETBALL: Lady Hawks drop...

    With the way the LaRue County Lady Hawks worked to get back into the game Friday night, the final seconds against the visiting Green County Lady Dragons were even more difficult to bear.

    After LaRue County rallied from a 13-point halftime deficit to take the lead in the fourth quarter, Green County senior guard Kayla Bale rebounded Mya Schrembs’ shot and made a jumper in the lane with 5 seconds left to stun the Lady Hawks, 63-62 in 18th District play.

  • BASKETBALL: Hawks fall to Dragons

    The LaRue County Hawks had the Green County Dragons on the ropes, but it was the Dragons who landed the knockout punch.

    After trailing the entire game, the Hawks tied the score at 39 with 2:03 remaining, but Green County made 5-of-7 free throws in the final minute to pull out a 46-41 victory in 18th District play Friday night on LaRue County’s Corky Cox Court.

    Senior Tyler Howell led the Hawks with 14 points and six rebounds, while junior Caleb Sheffer added eight points and grabbed six boards.

  • Stretch of horrid weather time...

     With much of Kentucky covered in a sundae made of snow topped with a crust of ice, fishing season seems millennia away.

    The sun gets higher in the southern sky with each passing day; it is only a matter of time before this horrible weather pattern breaks. Use this dark and cold time to prepare for the inevitable coming of the spring fishing season.

    Get your gear organized. While we change lures or rigs in haste while fishing, most of us just shove things such as bags of soft plastic lures, jigs or leaders into the first pocket in our tackle bag we find.

  • Lady Hawks game canceled

     Lady Hawks vs. Caverna game has been canceled for tonight due to weather.
