  • Lady Knights drop two

    Poor defensive play doomed the Marion County Lady Knights in a loss against the Russell County Lakers on Sept. 26. The Lady Knights lost 19-25, 23-25.

    Before Bam Adebayo started his seventh grade basketball season, he had already dunked a basketball. His motor has never quit running since then, either.
