  • 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.
    Overall, the girls’ team finished in 11th place with 13 total points and the boys’ team finished in fifth place with 45 points.
    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.

  • Lady Knights pick up nine-run win over Casey County

    The Marion County Lady Knights softball team won the only game it played last week, defeating Casey County on April 30. The Lady Knights were scheduled to play Bethlehem on April 29, but that game was cancelled due to wet field conditions.  
    With the win, Marion County’s record stands at 17-7.

  • Knights take two of four

    Last week, Marion County hosted John Hardin on April 29 and Washington County on May 1, before going on the road to play Garrard County Friday and Bryan Station Saturday.  The Knights (16-10) won two of the four contests.

    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.

  • Tennis opens regional tournament

    Three Lady Knights and four Knights advanced past the first round in the regional tennis tournament that started Friday at Freeman Lake Courts in Elizabethtown. The second round matches were scheduled to begin Monday, and second round results will be in next week’s issue.
    In girls singles, Alyssa Farmer advanced by defeating Bardstown’s Selena Spencer, 6-1, 6-3.  Marion County’s Allie Evans fell to Bethlehem’s Abby Moore, 6-4, 6-3.  

  • Epps is AP girls player of the year

    Marion County High School point guard Makayla Epps recently was voted as the 2013 Associated Press Kentucky girls basketball player of the year.  
    She said that she set team goals as her main focus this past season, and all the individual goals added to it.  
    Joining Epps on the first team is teammate Kyvin Goodin-Rogers, both of whom are Kentucky signees.  
    Other members of the first team include Rebecca Greenwell, China Dow, and Larryn Brooks.   The girls’ coach of the year honor went to Nicole Levandusky from Notre Dame.

  • Track teams close strong

    The Marion County track team competed in their final two meets of the regular season as they gear up for regional competition, which begins tomorrow.  
    The Knights won their final home meet of the season with 149.5 points, while the Lady Knights finished third with 76 points.
    “We got some kids some experience in events they haven’t been competing in,” assistant coach Daniel Johnson said.  “I thought everyone did a great job of going out and competing despite it being our third meet in six days.”
