  • 39 & Oh How Sweet It Is

    The Marion County Lady Knights made history Saturday at the KHSAA Girls Sweet 16 State Basketball Tournament in Bowling Green. They became the very first Lady Knights basketball team to win a state championship, and the first undefeated state champion in girls basketball since 1984. Their perfect season, 39-0, is proof they are one of the greatest girls baseketball teams in the state’s history, according to Head Coach Trent Milby.
    “Records are made to be broken, but 39 wins will never be broken in Kentucky or Marion County High School history,” he said.
