  • Lady Knights go toe-to-toe with Bethlehem

    The Marion County High School girls soccer team ended their regular season against Somerset (12-5) with a 2-0 loss on Friday.

    "I think they were anticipating a much bigger win than what they got," girls soccer Head Coach Neil Payne said. "Our girls were saying they were underestimating us.

We look a lot better now than we did two weeks ago."

    As the bells chimed to announce that it was noon Saturday, approximately 50 people gathered outside the David R. Hourigan Government Building in Lebanon.

    Helen Hughes, the organizer of the event, said this is the third year the public Rosary has been held in Marion County. The event was held as close as possible to Oct. 13, the anniversary of what some Catholics believe was Mary’s final apparition to three children in Fatima, Portugal, in 1917.
