  • Knights baseball games cancelled

    The freshman team was able to play a game against Washington County Wednesday, May 8.

  • Keeping the coyote population under control

    I’m not one to advocate killing something just for the sake of killing. So when I say all coyotes should be shot, trapped or in some way eradicated it’s not just for the killing. It’s a matter of control!
    This point was brought to my attention during our turkey season. On two occasions I came across a pile of turkey feathers and some body parts. Don’t know why the feathers and body parts were left since a coyote usually eats everything.

  • Back to state

    Spring sports seasons are winding down at Marion County High School as some teams are preparing for the end of the regular season while other teams have already began postseason competition. The tennis and track teams have already completed regional competition and both sports had some athletes qualify for state level competition.

  • Lady Knights win two, lose one on the diamond

    The Marion County Lady Knights softball team played three games last week. The team’s record now stands at 19-8 going into the final week of regular season play.
    “A very disappointing week of softball,” Head Coach Todd Spalding said. “In order for us to have a realistic chance of advancing deep into the postseason some things have to change and change fast. We have entirely too much moping, pouting and self-pity among some. We still have time to get this right but with one week left in the regular season that time is running short.”

  • Four athletes qualify for state competition

    The Marion County track team hosted the regional track meet at Bardstown High School Thursday.
    Overall, the girls’ team finished in 11th place with 13 total points and the boys’ team finished in fifth place with 45 points.
    The top two finishers in each event automatically qualified for the state meet and then the next 10 finishers in an event from across the state advance to the state meet with an at-large bid.
