    The Marion County boys tennis team won the Heartland Conference tournament last week, and the Lady Knights finished as the conference runner-up.

     Victory is sweet.

    Marion County High School track athletes won several events in the Heartland Conference on April 17, and the girls finished second in the team competition with 94 points. 

    The boys finished third overall with 97 points.

    “Outside of region or state, this is probably our biggest meet of the season,” track Coach Daniel Johnson said. 

  • Marion County softball tops Elizabethtown

    The Knights lost 11-0 in five innings as they were hosted by the Admirals on April 18. 

  • Bass fishing team may be in place next year

    In late November last year, Marion County High School was given the go ahead to create a bass fishing team by the Marion County Board of Education. The 4-1 one vote in favor of the team passed on Nov. 26. 

    But, even with the board’s blessings, the team has gotten off to a slow start.

    And now, the question arises, will there be any fishing team at all?

  • MCHS girls soccer coach resigns

    On April 18, Devin Johnson resigned as the Marion County High School girls soccer coach with an announcement that he will be returning to college.

    He plans to return to school at Kentucky Christian University to get a degree in sports management and to resume playing soccer. 

    Johnson said he will miss being with his teammates because there was always something to do and laugh at during games and at practice, but that coaching doesn’t actually replace playing soccer.

  • Knights slay Dragons on the diamond

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

    Marion County defeated Green County, 9-2, on April 9, then split a double-header with the host Fern Creek Tigers (8-7) on April 12. The Knights took an 8-7 victory and a 9-5 loss against the Tigers.

  • 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. 

  • Marion County softball wins two

    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. 

    The defeats dropped the Lady Knights’ record to 5-4 when they lost to the Ryle Lady Raiders, 6-3, and the Madison Southern Lady Eagles, 4-2, on April 12.
