    After Marion County’s performance in the Heartland Conference Tournament, Joey Reed is a very happy coach.
    Very happy.

  • Vaught’s Views: Sports broadcaster to cover his final UK game after 40 years

    By Larry Vaught

    He’s not flashy or overly dramatic, but just being himself worked perfectly for Rob Bromley at WKYT-TV (Channel 27) in Lexington for just over 40 years.
    That run ends Sept. 29 when Bromley retires after doing what he came to love — covering University of Kentucky sports.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Offense hot as Lady Knights grab win

    Marion County’s offense was hot. Very hot.
    Three Lady Knights hit double-digit kills and Marion County grabbed a four set win over the Boyle County Lady Rebels (26-24, 25-17, 24-26, 25-13) on Sept. 11 in Danville.
    “This was a good win for us against a very scrappy team,” Marion County head Coach David Hibbard said. “We played solid all night and our offense was as good as I have seen it. When you have over 50 kills in a night, you're doing some good things.”

    I’ve served on active duty and the Army Reserve for 42 years as an enlisted man in a wide variety of units and leadership positions. My time is almost over as I will be retired at the end of October when I reach 60.
    It’s been interesting, fun, scary at times, and most of all rewarding.
    My deepest regret is not taking Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) as a cadet when I was in college and becoming an officer in the U.S. Army. I feel I could have done so much more if I had.

  • BOYS SOCCER: Knights lose halftime lead, fall 6-3 to Boyle County

    Marion County changed their strategy up, trying to catch the Boyle County Rebels off guard during their match-up on Sept. 5. For the first half, it was working, with the Knights grabbing a 3-2 halftime lead. Eventually, Boyle County got settled in, finding their stride and finding victory, 6-3, over the Knights.
    “We didn’t run the offside trap because [Chris] McMann knows what style we play,” Head Coach Greg Conley said, “so we changed it up and caught them [Boyle County] off guard in the first half.”
