  • Hawks hold off Lakers for 14-10 win

    After six games in the books the LaRue County Football team has established an identity. They are young, energetic, and have a blue collar work ethic. All six games have proven that these Hawks are competitive and desire to get better each week.

    Last Friday the Hawks traveled to Russell Springs to battle the Lakers of Russell County who were seeking their first win of the season on homecoming night.

    It was a shaky start to what seemed like a beautiful night for football. The very first possessions for each team resulted in a turnover.

  • Dawson wins 5th Region Golf Tourney, advances to State

    LaRue County sophomore Cameron Dawson finished first out of 93 golfers Tuesday to capture the 5th Region Golf Tourney at Elizabethtown Country Club with an even par 72. In 2013 he walked away with a region runner-up at South Park Golf Course in Louisville, therefore he was one of six individuals expected to win this year’s tourney.

    Cameron is the first LaRue County golfer to win the region since Chad Hines did it in 1997. With the tournament win, Dawson qualified for the KHSAA State Golf Tourney in back-to-back seasons.

    After finding ways to lose three straight weeks, the LaRue County Hawks found a way to win. On the road, no less.

    The Hawks kept the Russell County Lakers scoreless on all eight of their possessions and senior Koy Lindsey’s fumble recovery on the Lakers’ final offensive play gave the Hawks three turnovers as LaRue County held on, 14-10.
