  • Knights win district soccer title

    The Marion County Knights won the 18th District soccer championship Thursday night.

    The Knights defeated the Taylor County Cardinals, 5-1, in a match at Marion County High School to claim the title.

    The Marion County boys (16-6) open the 5th Region tournament on at 6 p.m. Monday against the Nelson County Cardinals at North Hardin High School. The winner will face John Hardin at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23.

    In the 18th District girls championship, the LaRue County Lady Hawks defeated the Marion County Lady Knights, 2-1.

  • Good deed, good game

    The Marion County Knights and Lady Knights did battle in order to raise awareness for breast cancer during a double header on Oct. 8. The lines were painted dark pink in honor of the occasion, and door prizes were given to the women in the audience. 

    “It felt great and we did a great job of painting the field up and lighting the lanterns and getting everyone involved,” Knights Coach Greg Conley said. 

  • Busy week means wins for Lady Knights

    Senior night was a good night for the Marion County Lady Knights.

    Marion County (23-10) swept the Adair County Lady Indians (7-13), 25-22, 25-14, 25-19, but that’s not all they accomplished with the win.

    “We finished undefeated in the district. That’s always a good thing,” Lady Knights Coach David Hibbard said.

    Marion County was 6-0 against district opponents this season. 

  • KHSAA: Be careful when shaking hands

    Kentucky High School Athletic Association Commissioner Julian Tackett issued a directive last week discouraging post-game handshakes. Since its release, the directive has come under heavy scrutiny and has in some cases, been misunderstood. 

    Some people took it so far as to say that handshakes were banned when the directive was issued. 

    According to KHSAA spokesperson Marilyn Mitchell, however, handshakes are not prohibited.

  • Cardinals grounded

    Junior wide receiver Lincoln Haydon and senior running back Justin Dawson scored two touchdowns each to help lift Marion County a win on Homecoming night.

    Friday night, the Knights toppled the Taylor County Cardinals, 39-22, and picked up a win in their district opener.

    “We had the speed advantage … and that is what allowed us to win the ball game,” Marion County Coach Jeff Robbins said.

  • Eagles, Lady Knights end in a draw

    The Marion County Lady Knights started well on senior night, taking a 3-0 lead over the North Bullitt Lady Eagles on Oct. 2.

    But North Bullitt came back in the second half to earn a tie, 3-3.

    “It doesn’t start much better than that,” Lady Knights Coach Devin Johnson said. “You got to finish though.”

  • Over in a flash

    A little lightning shortened the Marion County Knights’ match Saturday night, but they had enough time to take a 5-0 win over the Fort Knox Eagles.

    The referees spotted lightning as the teams were returning to the field for the second half, which caused a mandatory 30-minute delay. Shortly thereafter, the teams agreed to call the game instead.

  • Two losses for Lady Knights

    Central Hardin visited the Marion County Lady Knights on Oct. 1 and returned home with a win. The Lady Bruins won the match in three sets, 25-17, 25-13, 25-20.

    “We couldn’t pass to save our lives,” Marion County Coach David Hibbard said.

    Nevertheless, Hibbard did see a bright spot for the Lady Knights. During the first half of the third set, Marion County was outplaying the Lady Bruins, even forcing them to take a timeout while trailing 17-12.
