  • Leading by example

    Marion County has many reasons to be proud right now.
    We have the top girls basketball team in the state, numerous published (and soon-to-be published) authors, top-performing schools and, of course, the Turtleman, who continues to make the headlines and airwaves for his... ahem... talents.
    Saturday evening, Marion County added another accomplishment to our list.

  • Aqua Knights compete against 19 teams at Somerset

    The Marion County Aqua Knights swim team traveled to Somerset recently, and 19 teams competed. Numerous Marion County swimmers participated in various events.

    The Aqua Knights will be back in action on Jan. 28, when they travel to Shelbyville to take part in a meet.
    Individual and relay results from the meet in Glasgow are as follows:

  • NFL playoffs

    This year, watching the NFL playoffs is different for me. Usually, I am cheering on my favorite NFL team, the Indianapolis Colts, to win each playoff game and make it to the Super Bowl. But, due to a 2-14 record after their star quarterback Peyton Manning didn't play a snap this season, the Colts didn't make it to the playoffs, which hasn't happened in several seasons.

  • Knights hang on to defeat Bruins

    In the nightcap game of the Autism Awareness Classic held Saturday at Marion County High School, the Marion County Knights played Central Hardin. The Knights led most of the way, but allowed the Bruins to creep back into the game near the end. Marion County was able to hang on and take the 71-65 victory.

  • Knights handle Eagles

    In their second match-up of the season, the Marion County Knights defeated the Campbellsville Eagles Friday by a final score of 67-34. All but two Knight players broke into the scoring column in the rout led by sophomore Clay Lanham with 10 points. With the win, the Knights move into a tie with Taylor County for the top spot in the district. The Knights have yet to tangle with the Cardinals this season, and have one more game against Adair County in Columbia.

  • Knights defeat Boyle County

    In their first game of 2012, the Marion County Knights hosted the Boyle County Rebels Tuesday of last week at the Roby Dome. After trailing until nearly halfway through the second quarter, the Knights fought back and maintained the lead for the remainder of the game in route to the 13-point victory.

  • Lady Knights Win Battle of the Best

    The Marion County Lady Knights hosted the DuPont Manual Lady Crimson Saturday during the Autism Awareness Classic - a match-up featuring the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the state.
    The match-up lived up to all the hype. And the Lady Knights defeated the Lady Crimson 63-61.
    "It was a great atmosphere and a game that I'm sure people were excited to watch," Head Coach Trent Milby said. "The game could have ended with either team winning, I'm just glad it was us."

  • Duck, geese, rabbit and squirrel hunting for good measure

    I'll be kinda glad when this season is over! And I'm not talking about the deer, squirrel, rabbit or waterfowl seasons!
    What I mean is the holiday season. This season when my articles sneak up on me, a.k.a. early deadlines. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's and this Monday it's Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
    Anyway, unless you've been cloistered away somewhere you know that "weather wise" it sure doesn't seem like January.
