  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights take down Metcalfe

    Trailing at half and trying to shrug off a sluggish start, the Lady Knights needed all their energy, resolve and talent to mount a comeback.
    "We discussed at the half what we needed to do, which was step it up defensively," Lady Knights Head Coach Kenny Mills said. "The girls responded."
    Marion County did just that, turning a two-point halftime deficit into a 56-45 win at Metcalfe County Feb. 6, overcoming not just a sluggish night, but a career night from MacKenzie Coleman - the Lady Hornet's leading scorer put up 31 points.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights gearing up for district tourney

    Before the 20th District Tournament gets underway for the Knights, Marion County still has some unfinished business in regular season play. Two more games remain before the district tournament tips off at Adair County High School.
    The first of those games comes on Thursday, when Marion County makes the journey to Beth Haven Christian School for an early evening match with the Beth Haven Bearcats. Tip-off is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Beth Haven will be coming off a game on Feb. 14 against a struggling Shawnee Golden Eagles squad that has won only one game this season.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights to face Taylor County in district tourney

    After two tough losses against North Bullitt and Boyle County last week, Marion County sought to get back to winning and move past the two dismal performances with back-to-back games at Danville Monday evening and Caverna on Tuesday. The Lady Knights (17-10) get a few days of rest before they wrap up the regular season at 6 p.m., Friday, against the LaRue County Hawks at the Roby Dome. The final game of the regular season for Marion County will be rather bittersweet with Senior Night festivities scheduled to be held.

    On Feb. 10-11, Marion County travels to Russell County for the regional tournament. In arguably the most important meets of the season, Aquaknights Head Coach Katie Johnson says her team will come out ready to swim. She also says she has seen improvements out of several of her swimmers.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Season winding down for Lady Knights

    The district tournament is only two weeks away, and only five games remaining in the season, the Marion County Lady Knights seek a clean sweep of their remaining games when they do battle with the Boyle County Lady Rebels at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 9. The Lady Rebels (11-13) recently took on the Casey County Lady Rebels at home Feb. 7 before making the trip to the Roby Dome.
    Lady Knights Head Coach Kenny Mills expects Boyle County to play better than their record would indicate.

    One more win, and Marion County finished undefeated in 20th District play.
    Mission accomplished.
    Haeli Howard scored 24 points to lead the Lady Knights to a 58-38 win over the Taylor County Lady Cardinals Friday evening.
    "We started off slow," Lady Knights Head Coach Kenny Mills said. "We weren't rebounding and were settling for the outside shot. We picked it up in the third quarter and started playing better defense and getting to the basket."

  • Frisbee team takes flight at MCHS

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Trojans too much for Knights

    North Hardin's Tony Jackson put on a dazzling show against Marion County.
    Jackson scored 17 after sitting out the entire first quarter and led the Trojans to a 79-49 victory Jan. 31 in Radcliff. He led all scorers.
    "They're a big, strong team," Knights Head Coach Montrelle Irvin said. "I feel they have a great chance to win the region. It was a hard matchup for us. Their quickness, size and strength was a little too much for us."
