  • Marion County competes at Panther Invite

    The Marion County High School track team returned from the Panther Twilight Invitational without an overall top 10 performance from either the boys or girls teams on April 25. The girls placed 19th and the boys placed 18th in the competition. 

    In an email sent, MCHS Track Coach Daniel Johnson wrote that the team just did not have the numbers and they were facing some stiff competition in the meet. Several students from other schools met the national silver standard with their performances at the meet. 

  • No hitter winner

     While Marion County Lady Knights freshman pitcher Allison Maupin pitched a no hitter against the Thomas Nelson Generals on April 24, another Marion County young athlete did the same thing last week.

    On April 23, Carly Jo Thomas, a sixth grade pitcher for the Lebanon Middle School softball team pitched a no-hit, perfect game against the Spencer County Bears. 

    Her coach, Troy Overstreet, was happy with the accomplishment.

  • One more shot at turkeys

     Well, there’s one more weekend of turkey season left, so it’s not looking good. Course when you’re hunting from a recliner you don’t expect much.

    Seems like I’ll go out, spend a day hunting then spending several days getting over the reaction to the allergies. Much as I love the outdoors, it seems like I’m allergic to most everything out there.

    Grass, dust, and leaf mold are a few of my favorites!

  • Outstanding athlete getting better

    A 17-year-old boy stands with a straight face. His sharp stare is one that’s been honed by the experience of both victory and defeat.

    On the mound he cocks his arm back, ready to fire. With a snap forward, he throws a pitch —  in the blink of an eye, the ball rips past his target.

    It’s just one of many strikeouts and another tally in his stat book.
