  • Knights improve record to 5-1

    Last week, the Marion County High School boys’ soccer team took a step in the right direction by winning two outings. The team faced Southwestern Pulaski County Monday and Garrard County Tuesday. One of the games was a tightly contested, physical game and the other was not.
    The match-up on Monday against Southwestern Pulaski County turned into a  physical game that could have gone either way, according to Head Coach Greg Conley. Conley added that the Knights had a couple of missed opportunities.
