  • Lady Knights compete in first tennis meet

    The Marion County Knights finally hit the tennis courts for their first meet of the season when the girls hit the road to play in the North Laurel Tournament after rain had cancelled several scrimmages and matches. 
    "It was the first time playing for some," Head Coach Noah Swencki said. "They won some and lost some, but they had fun and that's all that matters."

  • TRACK AND FIELD: Knights open season on positive note

    The Marion County High School track and field team traveled to the Green County All-Comers Meet in Green County March 16 in a girls-only outdoor meet. Head Coach Daniel Johnson said they performed well.
    "It was a great experience for all of the girls," Johnson said. "We will continue to learn and grow as the season progresses. I thought all of the girls did a great job for their first time out."

  • Power lifters

    Current and future Marion County football players traveled to Central Hardin High School on Saturday to compete in the state powerlifting meet. St. Charles Middle School students placed in the competition.
    Mason Brown received first place and broke the record for bench press at 225 pounds in the middle school division weight class of 220. He also set a middle school state record with his power clean of 225 pounds. Brice Pirkle placed third in bench press in the middle school division weight class of 220. And Lucas Riley placed second in his 195 weight class.

  • BASEBALL: Fourth inning gives Knights season-opening win

    Rival Washington County led 2-0 and appeared to be in control of the game. 
    Then came a fourth inning in which Marion County put four runs across the plate and stole both team's season opener with a 4-2 win Friday evening, thanks to a few Commanders miscues and an opportunistic Knights squad.

  • BASEBALL: Knights to face Pulaski, Danville, Collins  

    The Marion County Knights, after scheduled games against Nelson County and Barren County, will make the trip to Somerset Thursday evening to take on the Pulaski County Maroons at 6 p.m. The Maroons began the season with a 4-2 loss to the Danville Admirals and come off a lackluster 9-20 performance last season that ended with a loss to the Somerset Briar Jumpers in the 47th District Tournament. 

  • SOFTBALL: Mattingly pitches perfect game 

    Perfection sometimes takes a long time to achieve. 
    For Haley Mattingly, it took a mere five innings. 
    Haley Mattingly pitched a perfect game, striking out 12 batters, including the first nine she faced, as Marion County blew past the Thomas Nelson Generals 14-0 Thursday evening in the Lady Knights’ season opener. 
    "You don’t see many perfect games," Marion County Head Coach Jonathan Spalding said. 

  • TENNIS: Knights ready to hit tennis court  

    After the scheduled season-opener against Hart County Monday, the Knights will welcome their cross-county rival, Washington County, to Marion County High School Friday afternoon and then travel to Nelson County March 20. 
    Knights Head Coach Noah Swencki is expecting good performances and solid growth in the first few games of the season. 

  • TRACK AND FIELD: Knights ready to take season by storm

     

  • BASEBALL: Coach has high expectations for Knights

    The Marion County Knights came up just short in the 20th District Tournament championship game last year, falling 5-4 to Taylor County. Then they lost 3-2 to the Central Hardin Bruins in the Fifth Region Tournament. 
    They’re surely looking to make some noise come postseason, and Head Coach Patrick Campbell expects great things out of this year’s squad, which will consist of 32 varsity, junior varsity and freshman players. 
    “We have a lot of experience and leadership returning this year,” Campbell said.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights fall to Panthers in region semi-final

    Jada Stinson's four three-pointers in the first quarter and six straight points from Elizabethtown to start the second quarter threatened to turn Friday evening's Fifth Region Tournament semifinal into a blowout, forcing Marion County Head Coach Kenny Mills to call a timeout to gather his players and keep the wheels from falling off.
    What did he tell them? Step it up, or else you're going home.
