    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.

  • TENNIS: Spalding, Knights' season ends in first round

    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

  • 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."

    The Marion County Knights and Mercer County Titans battled in a 1-0 pitcher's duel back on April 1, with only two hits from both teams. The sequel to that pitcher's duel? An offensive explosion that left pitchers on their heels.       
    Mason Hazelwood, who pitched a no-hitter in the first game, hit a three-run home run in the fourth inning and Mercer County (12-11, 2-3) outlasted Marion County (18-4, 5-1) 14-8 on Amos Black Field in an offensive shootout May 2.
