  • What a great time of year

    What a great time of year it is! It is now officially spring, and as of last week, each spring sport has started up and began competition. The weather so far for the games, meets, and matches I have attended has been great, much warmer than last year when I remember going to events bundled up in pants, sweatshirts, and even gloves. I know that it may not stay like this, but if it does, I sure won't complain.  

  • I love the madness of March

    Well, this is most likely my favorite month of the year, especially this past week. I love watching basketball, and with the first three rounds of the NCAA tournament taking over our television sets, I just can't get enough. For 12 hours straight, on two separate days, basketball took over my television.  With all tournament games being broadcast, the recall button got overworked the past few days switching back and forth between games.

  • What a ride

    As I am typing this column, I am totally worn out.
    I have spent this past weekend in Bowling Green with my husband Josh, my daughter, Karli, my mom, and my uncle, along with many other Marion County fans, watching the Lady Knights basketball team as they made history once again.  

  • It's that time of year

    Well, the calendar just flipped another page into the month of March. Where does the time go? I remember when I was in school, people would tell me that time seems to pass by faster as you get older. At the time I thought they were just saying that, but now I am beginning to see that they were right.

  • Success on the hardwood

    Throughout the basketball seasons, I have observed some great games. That was also true this past week and weekend while attending the district basketball games held at Taylor County High School. With both the boys and girls teams having the No. 1 seed in the district standings, they were both able to play Campbellsville on Tuesday of last week, both winning their respective games and guaranteeing their trips to the 5th Region tournament.  

  • A look back

    Now that the regular seasons are complete for the Marion County High School Knights and Lady Knights, I thought it would be a good time to look back at how they did throughout the year.
    The Knights started the season off on the right foot, winning their first four games. Two of those four wins came on the road at Nelson County and Washington County. The next game for the Knights took them to Madison Central to take on the currently seventh ranked team in the state. The Knights fell in that contest by 34 points, but had some stiff competition.

  • Senior night

    I have been involved in several senior night celebrations, both as a basketball and softball player and as a softball coach. Each time, it was an emotional time that I still remember to this day.

  • Playoff push is on

    Well, the Lady Knights capped off another undefeated district run this year.  Not surprising, since they haven't lost a district game in 1,843 days counting today. The last loss was to Adair County at home on Jan. 23, 2007 in a 64-59 overtime loss. This also happens to be the only district loss under Head Coach Trent Milby.
    Ok, enough about the Lady Knights and their unprecedented run. Let's talk about the Knights and their success over the past couple of seasons.

  • Third time is a charm?

    Going into the girls Louisville Invitational Tournament (L.I.T.), I didn't know exactly what to expect this year. Last year at this time, Josh and I traveled to Bellarmine University to watch the 2011 L.I.T., where the Marion County Lady Knights lost to Mercy Academy in a one point heartbreaker in their first action of the tournament on a Friday afternoon.

  • Teams on top

    Recently, the Lady Knights defeated the DuPont Manual Lady Crimsons in the Roby Dome in a battle of the top two girls basketball teams in the state. The only problem was, at the time, the Lady Knights were ranked behind the Lady Crimsons in the state rankings. However, with the win over Manual, Marion County leaped past the Lady Crimsons into the top spot of the state girls basketball rankings.
