The Knights get ready to take the field for warm-ups in their semi-final game against Simon Kenton.
BASEBALL: Pioneers end Marion County's historical run

The Knights were on the journey of a lifetime. 
This squad, achieving so much in a season of historical proportions, found themselves on the edge of a state title game berth. One game away from a chance to do it all and achieve the sweetest of them all. 
Marion County, oh so close to the championship game, couldn't overcome Simon Kenton's three-run sixth inning in a 5-2 loss to the Pioneers in the first semifinal game in the Whitaker Bank/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament on Friday.
