    Final

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Thomas’ late free throws help Knights survive Dragons

    Once again, the Knights held a double-digit lead only to see it wither away. And, once again, they turned to clutch play down the stretch. They came out on top after withstanding one last gasp from the Dragons.
    Luke Thomas made two free throws with 8.5 seconds left and Marion County staved off Green County 60-57 at the Roby Dome on Jan. 9. Thomas finished with 16 points, including four threes.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights using time off court to get practices in

    With the wintry weather that hit Kentucky last week, numerous games were cancelled or postponed, including the Lady Knights’ three games last week.
    The Lady Knights were scheduled to play Bullitt East on Monday, Campbellsville on Friday and Green County on Saturday, but all those games were cancelled due to the inclement weather.

  • SWIMMING: Boys, girls teams both finish in top 5 at C’ville meet

    The Marion County Aquaknights had solid performances top to bottom at the Campbellsville-Taylor County Invite at the University of Campbellsville on Jan. 5.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Marion County faces 3 district opponents in 4 days

    After drawing two technical fouls early in the fourth quarter of Marion County’s 74-66 win against Sayre Friday, Jamison Epps was sidelined for Marion County’s game against Washington County Saturday and Green County last night. He’s scheduled to return when Marion County faces the Campbellsville Eagles at 7:30 p.m., Jan. 12, in Campbellsville.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Draw to be used instead of seeding for district tourney

    Teams in the 20th District will no longer be seeded in this year’s district tournament in boys basketball. Back in February, athletic directors from the four schools in the 20th District - Marion County, Campbellsville, Taylor County and Adair County - voted to use a blind draw to determine matchups for the district tournament effective for the 2017-18 season. The decision was made 3-1, and means district standings will no longer be used to determine matchups.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights look to get out of skid

    Lady Knights Head Coach Kelly Wood knows his team is struggling, having lost seven of the last nine games.
    “We’re in a funk,” he said. “We’ve got to get out of this slump. If you don’t show up you’re going to lose. Teams won’t give it to you just because you show up in their gym. We’re just out of it right now but I’d rather it be now than later. Something good will happen once we hit our stride. We’ve had good practices and the effort is there, but we’ve lost something and need to find it.”

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights fall to South Oldham as Means scores 1,000th point

    Marion County was on the rally again, surging late and nearly grabbing the lead. The Knights almost orchestrated a comeback to be remembered.
    South Oldham escaped with a 66-61 win over Marion County on Dec. 22 in the Twin Lakes Classic. Lez Means almost put the Knights on top but was called for a charge driving to the basket with under a minute left.
    "We came out slow and picked it up in the second half but it was too big of a hole to overcome," Knights Head Coach Montrelle Irvin said.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights fall in overtime to Spencer County

    Marion County looked to be in firm control, holding a double-digit lead and 180 seconds away from victory. Spencer County rallied furiously and forced overtime, eventually coming away with a 68-62 overtime victory on Friday in both team’s final game of the Bardstown Holiday Classic.
    The Lady Bears hit two threes in their rally. Alyssa Howie had 18 points, Lauren Lambdin scored 16 and Amie Conley had 12.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Bulldogs end Marion County’s winning streak

    Marion County saw their early lead wither away as Jackson Harlan and his supporting cast heated up and started hitting shots. What looked to be another runaway victory became a disappointing performance for the Knights.
    Harlan racked up 29 points and the Knights’ five-game win streak was halted in a 71-65 loss to the Clinton County Bulldogs in the Twin Lakes Holiday Classic at Clinton County High School on Dec. 20.
