  • Storm shortens Danville meet

    Before being punctuated by expected storms, Marion County once again secured top spots in the Danville All-Comers meet on April 29. Among those slots taken were the girls 100 meter dash with Miranda Bradshaw taking first place, the triple jump with Meredith Bartley taking first place, and the boys triple jump with Justin Dawson taking second place. 

    The girls would take second in the event and the boys would take seventh.

    Of course, on May 3 the Kentucky Derby was held at Churchill Downs, as it has for 140 years. In case you don’t know which horse won, it was California Chrome.

  • Over the net

     Tennis could be seen as a delicate balance between fierce fighting and elegant hand-eye coordination mixed with good sportsmanship and footwork.

    Alex Spalding, a junior at Marion County High School, has a grip on that balance. In fact, he may even have mastery of it. 

    That’s because he’s been earning wins for the Knights for the last five years and taking plaques and trophies back to his school.
