  • Owen named to All-State Volleyball Team

    Junior Chloe Owen was selected to the Kentucky Volleyball Coaches Association 2nd Team All-State.

    This is the third consecutive year that the Lady Hawks’ volleyball team has had a first or second all-state team selection. Previous selections were Ivy Brown (2012 and 2013) and Alley Evans (2013).

    Her coach, Ben Schell, said it’s a “very prestigious honor because it is voted on by coaches throughout the state.”

  • Cheerleaders qualify for Nationals

    The LaRue County High School Cheerleaders found themselves in familiar territory Saturday as they made their annual trip to Harvest, Alabama (Sparkman High School) to compete in the UCA Northern Alabama Regional Qualifier. That familiarity proved to be beneficial as the competitive cheer squad earned their fourth straight National qualifier with a second-place finish.


    Cameron Dawson was named to the All-Region Golf Team. Only six players for Region 5 were selected. The postseason award was announced by the Kentucky Golf Coaches Association.

  • Eagles wallop Hawks, 46-26

    The LaRue County Hawks got off to a slow start Friday, but Campbellsville junior Kendon Young had no trouble getting going on a frigid, snowy night.

    Young rushed for 252 yards and five touchdowns, including four in the first quarter, to help the Eagles to a 46-26 victory over LaRue County at Hawk Field.

    Young gained 222 yards in the first quarter and had scoring runs of 85, 6, 29 and 92 yards as Campbellsville built a 26-6 lead less than 11 minutes into the game.

  • LaRue runners headed to State

    They posted their best times of the season.

  • Hawks fall to Louisville Central

     The LaRue County Hawks were outmanned Friday by Louisville Central’s Yellow Jackets. The Hawks lost 43-7 in a Class 3-A, District 3 game.

    Central is the top seed in the district, while the Hawks fell to the fourth seed after a home loss to Elizabethtown.

    The Yellow Jackets pulled ahead 28-0 at halftime, then scored nine points in the third quarter and six in the fourth.

    The Hawks scored in the fourth quarter when junior Marquis Franklin ran for a 5-yard touchdown and senior Koy Lindsey kicked the extra point.

  • Lady Hawks fall in Region tournament

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks entered the 5th Region Volleyball Tournament with nothing to lose, especially considering who their opponent was.

    But aside from a few lapses, the Lady Hawks felt they played right with the heavily favored Bardstown Bethlehem Banshees.

    Bethlehem advanced with a 25-18, 25-21, 25-17 victory in the quarterfinals Monday night at Bruin Gym, but LaRue County was encouraged with its performance.
