    LaRue County got six first-frame points from Lyndsay Whitlock, a three from Nancy Howell and three points from Shana Zajdel to lead 12-5, but the Lady Cardinals (12-11) used six second-period points from Elizabeth Thomas to knot the score at the intermission.

  • Taylor tops LaRue by 30

    Taylor County tallied 14 straight points in the first quarter and never looked back in blasting visiting LaRue County 79-49 on Friday night.

    Chase Cox's 11 first-half points and eight more by Lloyd Stotts enabled the Cardinals to build a 39-16 halftime cushion.

    Tyler Hornback had nine for LaRue County in the first two frames, but the Hawks could get no closer than 19 in the second half.

  • 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.

    Following Saturday night's 73-62 triumph over Logan County, the Hawks are one victory away from a 20-win season.

    The Lady Hawks, who have a 13-10 record, can ensure themselves of a winning season with a victory Tuesday over the 5-16 visitors.

  • 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.”

  • LaRue finishes second in region

    Here are results from regional championship matches involving members of the Mat Hawks:

  • Mat Hawks earn five top seeds in...

    Last year the LaRue County High School mat Hawks fell a few points short of winning their 10th regional championship in as many years. This year, the goal before the present wrestling team from day one’s practice, was to return to the top spot on the podium as a team at the regional level. On Saturday, starting at 10:30 a.m. at Fort Knox high school, the team will try to accomplish that goal.
