  • Knights win opening scrimmage

    The Marion County Knights baseball team played and won their opening contest of the season Saturday. The scrimmage against Hart County was scheduled to take place Friday at Marion County, but due to poor field conditions it was moved back a day and was moved to Hart County.  
    Neither team was able to score in the opening inning. Marion County once again failed to score in the top of the second inning. Hart County managed to push a run across in the bottom of the second inning off of a hit, a sacrifice, and an error to lead 1-0 after two innings.  

  • New faces highlight 2013 track season

  • Knights looking for good net play

    The Marion County Knights and Lady Knights tennis teams are looking forward to their seasons.
    “I am optimistic about the upcoming season as we return many of the players from last year’s regional championship team,” second year boys coach Landon Williams said. “Because of last year’s success, we will have several opportunities throughout the regular season to match up with the top talent in the state. As long as we don’t get discouraged, the schedule will help us improve and get after some people during the regional tournament.”

  • Manager shows nothing is impossible

    “The only thing that can limit you is yourself. You should set your own limits, and you can do whatever comes to your mind.”
    That’s Ezra Glasscock’s very own motto. And he lives by those words everyday.
    The Marion County High School Lady Knights basketball manager has overcome some major obstacles in his life, but has accomplished everything he has set his mind to. Glasscock has persevered through a stroke, severe seizures, a major brain surgery, and lifelong limited use of the left side of his body.

  • Six seniors will lead baseball Knights

    Marion County Baseball Head Coach Chad Spalding begins his 17th season at the helm this year. He’s looking forward to the start of season for several reasons. One is that he believes his team is primed for a success.
    “We are a senior dominant team,” he said. “This is the first time we have had six seniors in a long time. We also have a junior that has as much experience as most or all of the seniors.”
    Spalding went on to discuss what this means for his team.

Last year, Divine brought home the state championship in the pole vault and was out to defend his title.  
    Not only did Divine repeat his performance, he broke the class AA state meet record in the pole vault event. Divine cleared 13’8” to bring home the title and eclipsed the previous record of 13’6”, which was set in 2000.
