  • Volleyball: Lady Knights pick up senior night victory

    The Marion County Lady Knights took a victory over the Bardstown Lady Tigers on Oct. 9.
    Adding icing to the top of their cake, the 3-1 victory was a sweet ending for the 12 seniors of the team because it also happened to be senior night.
    “We played really hard in the beginning,” Lady Knights senior Mckenzie Reynolds said.
    The Lady Knights (18-14) lost a chance to win the game in the third set and finished 25-21, 25-18, 21-25, 25-22.
    Reynolds said they relaxed in third set which is what gave Bardstown (13-16) the win.

  • Mixed weather marks youth deer weekend

    Well, our 2014 youth deer hunt was bad and good, weather-wise.
    Saturday was just plain miserable with all the rain. Of course, there are those who consider the off and on rain, and cool temperatures, the best weather for hunting deer.
    Then came Sunday with a beautiful, rain free, morning. The temperature was good and the wind was acceptable for the morning and evening hours.
    I know of several youth who took advantage of the weekend, but as I write this I haven’t heard what kind of luck they had.

    While Marion County students enjoyed a break from classes last week, many of them found another way to continue their education. Several students in Project Lead the Way participated in co-ops at local businesses and industries.
    At Angell Demmel, junior Chris Piekarski and senior Brandon O’Daniel were assigned with coming up with a way to ship parts for a Lexus vehicle overseas without damaging them. They also got to try their hand at designing a crate in AutoCAD (a computer-aided design and drafting program).
