High School Sports

  • Beat the heat!

    With summer in full force, being outdoors means warm weather, fun and exercise. 

    But getting outside and breaking a sweat also means those dedicated to exercise should be extra cautious in the heat. Not only can warmer temperatures be uncomfortable, they can also be downright dangerous. 

  • Knights split soccer scrimmages

     The Marion County Knights soccer team swung back into action over the weekend to scrimmage in the Bluegrass State Games. 

    The Knights played in two games on July 26. After falling 2-0 against the Grant County Braves, the Knights dusted themselves off and went on to defeat the University Heights Blazers, 2-0. 

    Freshman Colby Hood fired in the Knights’ first goal while sophomore Alan Guzman knocked in their second on an assist from senior Ryker Cassidy.

    The spring semester proved to be one of trial and tribulation for Marion County High School’s athletic program.

    With victories and defeats aside, a couple teams lost their top leaders while a whole new team was formed and will soon be underway. 

    The  Lady Knights softball team and Marion County’s swim team each lost their coaches recently. 

  • New coach ready to cast off

    After nearly a year of turbulent times, Marion County High School’s bass fishing team is finally coming into fruition. A coach has been recommended for the job, and all that is left is to have him be approved by the MCHS Site-Based Decision Making council later this month. 

    His name is Jason Spalding, and he’s been fishing since he was old enough to hold a rod and crank a reel.

    The Lady Knights won four out of five matches at UK, which featured teams from Kentucky and one from West Virginia.
