    The Aquaknights are in the process of preparing for the upcoming season, which begins on Nov. 27 with a home meet against Nelson County at the Lebanon Aquatic Center. The swim team has enjoyed increases in numbers of athletes over the past couple of seasons.

  • A night to relax

    So in Josh's column last week, he made a statement that I would miss standing on the sidelines of Knights football games. Just to clarify, he meant for this season. I think some people who read the column or maybe just skimmed parts of it, thought that Josh and I were quitting our job as sports correspondents for the Enterprise. However, that is not the case. We are eager to begin covering our third season of basketball and swimming, the winter sports whose regular season games and meets start at the end of this month.

  • Lady Knights look to make history

    Coming off a season that ended in heartbreak in the state championship game, the Marion County High School girls basketball team is ready to get that taste out of their mouths. Even with the loss of four seniors, Head Coach Trent Milby believes that his team can accomplish their goals.  
    "Our expectation is the same as every year, but our main goal is a state title," Milby said. "We have come close and have our sights set on getting the job done this season. Either way it has been a great seven years."
