    The LaRue County Hawks Boys Basketball Team improved their season record to 13-6 after defeating the Meade County Green Wave Feb. 1, 55-54.

    The Hawks had lost three of their last four games and were in need of a late season victory, said Head Coach Paul Childress. 

    “This was a good win for us,” Childress said. “It was a close game and that is what you will run in to during post-season. Our guys stepped up and made enough plays at the end to win the game.”

    The Hawks got off to a shaky start, Childress said.
