  • Winning season

     I have a confession to make. 

    When I made my way to Rockcastle County for the first and only game of the Marion County Knights’ postseason on Nov. 7, I had a feeling it would be their only night in the postseason. Though the team’s records were the same, the Rockets had a better district and region record. The feeling that Marion County was going to lose got worse when the Rockcastle County Rockets scored within the opening moments of the game.
