  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights face Taylor County to kick off busy stretch

    Lady Knights Head Coach Kelly Wood drew a Clint Eastwood reference to describe Marion County’s play thus far this season.
    “Good, bad and ugly,” Wood said. “We’ve been a little bit of all three but most teams are. We’re young, though. It’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon so we got to finish strong. That’s what we got ahead of us. The team gets along great. They’re such great kids.”

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Means posts first career double-double in win over C’ville

    Marion County had been off the court since Jan. 9 due to wintry weather that dumped nearly a half-foot of snow across Central Kentucky last week. After seeing four games get cancelled due to the treacherous weather, the Knights finally got back on the court Saturday against Campbellsville.
    Over five minutes into the game, Campbellsville and Marion County had combined for a mere seven points. Time for Lez Means to provide a spark to the sluggish Knight offense.

    Back on the court after a two-week hiatus due to the winter weather, the Lady Knights had a chance to end a three-game losing streak and grab an important district win.
    Needing to withstand a tough Campbellsville squad to do both, Marion County came away with a 45-40 win over the Lady Eagles in what Marion County Head Coach Kelly Wood said wasn’t the prettiest win.
    “It wasn’t pretty, but a win is a win,” he said. “It was good to get a win. I was happy with the effort. We competed today and we kept fighting.”

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Thomas’ late free throws help Knights survive Dragons

    Once again, the Knights held a double-digit lead only to see it wither away. And, once again, they turned to clutch play down the stretch. They came out on top after withstanding one last gasp from the Dragons.
    Luke Thomas made two free throws with 8.5 seconds left and Marion County staved off Green County 60-57 at the Roby Dome on Jan. 9. Thomas finished with 16 points, including four threes.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights using time off court to get practices in

    With the wintry weather that hit Kentucky last week, numerous games were cancelled or postponed, including the Lady Knights’ three games last week.
    The Lady Knights were scheduled to play Bullitt East on Monday, Campbellsville on Friday and Green County on Saturday, but all those games were cancelled due to the inclement weather.
