In recognition of the Marion County Lady Knights winning the 2013 Sweet 16 and finishing the season 39-0, the Marion County Fiscal Court has approved a resolution declaring March 22 as Lady Knights Day.
Marion County Judge/Executive John G. Mattingly told the team during the March 21 fiscal court meeting that the court and the entire county was proud of them for their accomplishments on and off the court.
Here is the text of the proclamation:
MARION COUNTY LADY KNIGHTS DAY
FRIDAY, MARCH 22, 2013
Whereas, our Marion County High School Lady Knights have earned the Kentucky high school girls state championship title, and
Whereas, our Lady Knights had an undefeated season and a 39-0 record en route to the Kentucky high school girls state championship, and
Whereas, this is the first time a team has accomplished such a record in the state of Kentucky since 1984, setting a new school record, and
Whereas, the Lady Knights join an elite group of only 11 Kentucky schools that have accomplished both boys and girls state basketball championships, and
Whereas, Coach Trent Milby, Assistant Coaches Anthony Epps and Robert “Boobie” Spalding, along with the entire team worked tirelessly for the entire season to ear the “KY HS GIRLS STATE CHAMPIONSHIP” and
Whereas, the coaches and Lady Knights have made our school, community and county proud, both on and off the court, and
Now, therefore, be it resolved that we proclaim March 22, 2013 — “MARION COUNTY LADY KNIGHTS DAY” in Marion County.
Adopted at the meeting of Marion County Fiscal Court on this , the 21st day of March, 2013.
