A state champion on the links, Lauren Le has found a way to be a consistent and vital part of the North girls golf team.

"I'm not surprised that her success is there simply because she puts so much effort into it, so much time, and she goes 100 miles per hour if she has to, just to get the job done," said North girls golf coach Ken Wempe.

Le's determination carries over into the classroom as well, as the senior Husky is ranked in the top 5% of her class.

"It's the way my parents raised me to be an overachiever and not just settle for anything less," said Le. "I always work my hardest and give it my best."

"She's one of the leaders of the classroom, very giving when kids need some help or something like that," said North department chair of Science Brian Dougan. "She's the one who they'll go to because she's very approachable not arrogant in any way but the intelligence that she has and she's willing to share and help for the better of the group most of the time."

When she is not hitting the books, or spending time perfecting her craft, Le can be found in the North community. The Husky is involved in five different clubs and activities. 

"I'm interested in helping out my community and I think extra curriculars make myself more well rounded," said Le.

"I know Lauren Le is going to be very successful in life," said Wempe.

"A kid like that has the potential to go whatever road she wants she's already taken the road of working extremely hard and at the same time has the talents that are given to her, so yeah, the sky is the limit for her by far," said Dougan.

Today's high of 93° not only marks our hottest recorded temperature of the year, but our highest since the afternoon of August 10th of 2020! Despite the oppressive heat, the day itself wasn't necessarily unpleasant; while peak temperatures climbed abnormally high for this time of the year, a weak cold front passing to our south ushered in a breezy northerly wind flow that helped take the edge off that summer-like heat across the Tri-State earlier this afternoon. The evening ahead will remain quite pleasant, albeit mild - expect the mercury to dip from 87° to 75° between dinnertime and 10PM. Between the northerly winds and clear conditions overnight, morning low temperatures will trend toward the upper 50s and low 60s early Tuesday; we'll fall to 60° even in Evansville.
