  • Basketball homecoming...

    Homecoming ceremonies will add to the excitement Tuesday night as LaRue County's boys’ and girls’ basketball teams play their final home games of the season against Washington County. But both teams also have key milestones in reach on the court.

  • New athletic building permits...

    Thanks to donations from many sources, LaRue County High School has a 110x150-foot indoor practice facility that allows the school’s athletes to continue their drills, no matter what the weather is outside.

    “It offers everyone who uses it a more competitive advantage,” Sam Sanders, the district’s superintendent, said of the building located between the track and baseball field. “Not only do sports teams use it, but marching band has also practiced there.”
