  • Divine Repeat

    For the second consecutive year, Marion County’s Brooks Divine claimed the KHSAA 2A state pole vaulting title.
    Divine, a senior, won this year’s event by clearing 14 feet three inches at the state meet, which was held at Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park on the University of Louisville campus. Last year, he won by clearing 13’ 6”.
    “I had a goal at the beginning of last year and that was to be a back-to-back state champion and to be able to fulfill that goal and to sign at the University of Kentucky is a dream come true!” Divine said.

  • Knights baseball games cancelled

  • Lady Knights win two, lose one on the diamond

    The Marion County Lady Knights softball team played three games last week. The team’s record now stands at 19-8 going into the final week of regular season play.
    “A very disappointing week of softball,” Head Coach Todd Spalding said. “In order for us to have a realistic chance of advancing deep into the postseason some things have to change and change fast. We have entirely too much moping, pouting and self-pity among some. We still have time to get this right but with one week left in the regular season that time is running short.”

  • Four athletes qualify for state competition

    The Marion County track team hosted the regional track meet at Bardstown High School Thursday.

    The top two finishers in each event automatically qualified for the state meet and then the next 10 finishers in an event from across the state advance to the state meet with an at-large bid.

    Despite having fewer miscues than host Bryan Station, the Knights gave up 14 hits and five walks, and lost, 14-4, Saturday.
    “We had a beautiful day to play in Lexington but we were simply flat and lacked energy,” Marion County Coach Chad Spalding said.
