Central Hardin faces Green County in 5th Region finale tomorrow night

By Jesse Osbourne

The composed Lady Knights team that went on a six match winning streak was no where to be seen Wednesday night in the semi final round of the 5th Region tournament against Central Hardin High School.


Marion County unraveled early in both games, competing hard and then quickly losing composure. In the first game, Marion County found themselves down 7-6 only to watch the Lady Bruins go on a run to make it 18-7. The Lady Knights lost that game 25-13.

The second game found the Lady Knights up 10-5 but then the Lady Bruins went on another 11 point run, making it 21-10. The Lady Knights couldn't get up from the knock out blow. Central Hardin won on their own floor, 25-12.

Nine Lady Knight seniors walked off the floor for the last time. Next season Marion County returns three current juniors from the varsity squad. 

Central Hardin squares off against Green County High School on Thursday night at 7 p.m. for a ticket to the state tournament in Louisville.
