  • Rain cuts girls’ game short

    The Marion County High School girls soccer team had a much-needed slow week and played only one game. Tuesday of last week, the Lady Knights traveled to Lincoln County to take part in a rain soaked game. The two teams played the entire first half, and shortly into the second half the game was called because of deteriorating weather conditions.  By this time Marion County was trailing 5-0, and the game was considered an official game.  
    Head Coach Hart Hagan talked about how bad the weather really was.

    The Marion County High School boys and girls golf teams hosted the Marion County Invitational at Rosewood Golf Club Saturday. Both teams struggled in the event and finished no better than fifth place.
