  • 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

    “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.

  • Marion County closes season at regional tourney

    Marion County High school golfers ended their season at the Region 4 tournaments on Sept. 30 at Campbellsville Country Club (boys) and Oct. 1 at South Park Country Club in Louisville (girls).
    According to Marion County Coach Chad Spalding, it was a rough end to the season for the boys team.
    “It was a disappointing day for us,” he wrote in an email. “We simply played our worst 18 holes of the year.”
    There was one exception, however, Spalding wrote that Mason Gadberry turned in his best 18-hole performance of the fall. Gadberry led Marion County with an 84.

  • District play begins Friday for Knights

    The Marion County Knights stood at 2-3 heading into last week’s bye week. At 7:30 p.m. Friday, the Knights open district play by hosting the Taylor County Cardinals.

    “We definitely have an uphill battle coming at us the next few weeks,” he said.

  • Heads up

    The Marion County Knights scored four of their five first half goals on headers en route to a 9-0 win over the visiting Bullitt East Chargers.
    “That’s a first for us in a long time,” Knights Assistant Coach Phillip Chatigny said after the Sept. 26 match.
    Coach Greg Conley was not at the game as he was serving the second game of a three-game suspension due to a red card he received in the Sept. 21 match against Elizabethtown.
    But his influence was still being felt.

  • Lady Knights top Thomas Nelson

    Marion County didn’t waste any time defeating the Thomas Nelson Generals on the Thursday.
    The teams had agreed to play two out of three (instead of three out of five), and the Lady Knights won, 25-11, 25-20, at home.
    Marion County Coach David Hibbard had a simple assessment of the first set of the match.
    “We were really good, and they were really bad,” he said.
    In the second set, the Lady Knights defense wasn’t as good, Hibbard said, but it was still good enough to win.
