  • Knights slay Dragons on the diamond

    The Marion County Knights had a successful week of play, improving to 6-3.

  • Marion County takes fourth at Danville track meet

    Last week was a mixed bag of results for the Marion County track team. 

    Through brief bouts of cool wind and cold rain, the team emerged with top marks from the Danville All-Comers Meet on April 8.

    Unfortunately, results were not as upbeat in the Central Hardin Invitational on April 11, though several girls performed very well. 

    Marion County placed 12th in the Central Hardin Invitational, and fourth in the Danville All-Comers.

    After a stunning win against the Danville Lady Admirals, the Marion County Lady Knights went on to fall in two games in the Jaguar Classic.

  • Knights top Maroons

     Prior to shoving off for Spring Break, the Knights hosted and defeated the Pulaski County Maroons (2-7) on April 1. 

    The win was everything but an April Fools’ joke as the Knights defeated the Maroons, 7-3, to improve to 4-2 on the season.

    “I’ll take it, I’ll always take wins,” Knights Coach Patrick Campbell said.

  • A girl for all seasons

    Whether she’s kicking a ball, playing the net, or leaping and running, Miranda Bradshaw, a 17-year old senior at Marion County High School, knows few, if any boundaries at all. 

    During her time at MCHS, Bradshaw has tried her hand at almost every sport the school has to offer for girls. While she has no true favorite athletic activity, Bradshaw has participated in soccer, basketball, tennis, and track. 

  • March a mixed bag for Knights

    The Marion County Knights ended the month of March with a 3-2 record. They closed the month by falling to the Mercer County Titans. A round of foul weather swamped out a weekend of tournament play.

    The Knights dropped to 3-2 on March 26 as they lost 11-0 to the Titans (6-0).

  • Marion County athletes compete at Boyle County

    This is a corrected version of the story.

    Marion County finished its second track meet of the season when it competed in the Boyle County All-comers Meet on March 27. While the school did not take a top spot in the crowded competition, several MCHS students produced top 10 performances. 

    Track Coach Daniel Johnson said that despite poor weather conditions, the meet went very well and he would like to get some of the younger team members in the top 10 in future meets. 

  • Marion County serves up two wins over Eagles

    The Marion County Knights and Lady Knights saw action last week when they took a heaping handful of wins against the Campbellsville Eagles and Lady Eagles, Adair County Lady Indians, and Danville Admirals.

    On March 28, the Knights and Lady Knights took on the Eagles and Lady Eagles. The Knights walked away with all six wins in singles against the Eagles but fell in three straight doubles matches. 

  • Lady Knights top Lady Lions in softball

     The Marion County Lady Knights’ week of play was mostly washed out as cold weather and rain caused game after game to be canceled. In total, the Lady Knights lost the opportunity to play five games, four of which were in the Russell County Lady Laker Classic last weekend. 

    Though tourney play was not an option, the Lady Knights managed to squeeze in one game on March 27 against the Garrard County Lady Lions (4-1). There, the Lady Knights (3-1) defeated the visiting Lady Lions, 4-1, in seven innings.
