    Two weeks into the season, the LaRue County wrestling team is looking like a solid pick to win its first state championship.

    The top-ranked Hawks are off to a good start.

    “We knew they could hold it together,” said Roberts, who finished with 19 points and 12 rebounds. “But we knew we couldn’t foul anymore. We couldn’t hurt the team anymore.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...
