  • BASEBALL: Marion County closes out regular season with a win

    The Knights are riding into the postseason with momentum. 
    Kelly Mattingly and Cody Browning each went 2-3 at the plate while Travis Wiser gave up only three hits and two unearned runs in five innings on the mound, leading Marion County to a 6-2 win against the Boyle County Rebels to wrap up the regular season last week.
    "It was a great way to finish the season and get momentum going into the playoffs," Marion County Head Coach Patrick Campbell said. 

  • SOFTBALL: Spalding to resign as head coach at end of season

    Jonathan Spalding has announced he will be stepping down as head softball coach at the end of this season.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Knights finish district play undefeated

    Caroline Buckman hit a two-RBI single to break a scoreless tie in the seventh and Haley Mattingly came within one hit of a perfect game as Marion County finished district play with a perfect 6-0 record May 15 against the Campbellsville Lady Eagles (14-15, 2-4) in an 8-0 win.
    Buckman's hit set off an eight run seventh inning for the Lady Knights.

    Bryce Spalding's run in the state tournament came to a quick end. 
    Spalding fell 6-0, 6-2 in the opening round of the boys' singles draw to Rui Pinto from Kentucky Country Day.
    "Bryce went into the match with a good mindset," Head Coach Noah Swencki said. "It was a good opportunity for him to play better players than he's used to. He knew these kids were next level players. It was a learning experience for him. He played well but he had an unlikely draw."

  • TRACK: Personal records set at state meet

    The Marion County track team looked to end the 2017 campaign on a high note with a solid performance at the state track meet at the University of Kentucky Friday.

  • BASEBALL: Spalding, Thomas shut down Eagles  

    A shutout win against a top team in the Fifth Region is a good way to rebound from two straight losses. 
    Andrew Spalding and Luke Thomas pitched their second combined shutout this season and Marion County used a four-run second inning to defeat the visiting Bethlehem Eagles 6-0 on Dave Hourigan Field. The loss was only the second game in which Bethlehem (18-10, 8-4) was held scoreless this season. The Eagles also fell 11-0 to Nelson County on April 25.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Knights score six in fourth, defeat Lakers

    An explosive inning was just what Marion County needed when playing Russell County last week. The Lady Knights scored all six of their runs in the fourth inning. Haley Mattingly shut down the Russell County lineup and Marion County defeated the Lakers (14-16, 6-0) 6-0 in Russell Springs on May 9. 
    "It was nice to come off a six day layoff and win on the road," Marion County Head Coach Jonathan Spalding said. "We had to grind through it a little though."
