Football Freeze Out
For over 10 years, the three local high school football teams have battled in the same venues in a football extravaganza to open each fall gridiron season.
But in 2015, all that may change.
Hyden dominates Region
In 1909, the legendary Jim Thorpe single-handedly won a track meet for his Carlisle Institute track team by winning six of the seven events at the Lafayette meet. Several years later, track & field governing bodies limited an athlete to the number of events (usually four) that they could compete in during a single track competition.
Over a century later in the KHSAA Class AAA Region 7 Track & Field Championships, Pulaski County High School senior Austin Hyden did his best ‘Jim Thorpe’ impression by winning all four the events he was allowed to compete in on Tuesday.

Pulaski upsets Lady Warriors

Warriors bash Pulaski County
