  • New Lady Knights coach is ready to go

     On April 18, Lady Knights Coach Devin Johnson resigned to return to playing soccer at Kentucky Christian University while pursuing a degree in sports management.  

    After a long summer without word of who would take his place, the team has found its new leader, and he was there all along. 

    His name is Derek Cissell.

    Before being named coach, he was acting as a temporary coach to get the team together for seasonal play.

  • Knights looking ahead to season

    With two scrimmages under their belt, the Marion County Knights are preparing to enter their season with gusto. Coming off of a 16-7 season last year, the Knights will be starting fresh after losing 12 seniors. 

    “They were all significant positional players for our team last year,” Knights Coach Greg Conley said. 

    Heavy hitting forwards Joey Costello, Dylan Spalding, and sweeper Alex Smith were among those who graduated.

  • Lady Knights have high expectations

    The Marion County Lady Knights are coming off a 24-12 season. They are the reigning 20th District champions. And they are just a few weeks away from starting a new season. 

    Despite losing powerhouses Alexus Calhoun and Abby Murphy to graduation, much of last year’s varsity squad is returning. According to the Kentucky High School Athletics Association’s website, Marion County has 12 seniors and one junior on its roster. 

  • Knights open season at Taylor County

    The Marion County Knights golfers went into their season swinging by playing in the Taylor County Invitational on Aug. 2. The Knights came in 13th out of 19 teams.

    “For our first event out at a pretty tough course, we played OK,” Knights Coach Chad Spalding said. “But I would say not to expectations.”

  • MCHS season passes are for sale

     Knights and Lady Knights fans can purchase season passes for the fall sports at Marion County High School.

    A pass for football is $20. A soccer pass (which includes boys and girls matches) is $25, and a volleyball pass is $20.

    A pass for all fall sports is $75. 

    Passes are not valid at district and regional tournament contests.

  • Beat the heat!

    With summer in full force, being outdoors means warm weather, fun and exercise. 

    But getting outside and breaking a sweat also means those dedicated to exercise should be extra cautious in the heat. Not only can warmer temperatures be uncomfortable, they can also be downright dangerous. 

  • Knights split soccer scrimmages

     The Marion County Knights soccer team swung back into action over the weekend to scrimmage in the Bluegrass State Games. 

    The Knights played in two games on July 26. After falling 2-0 against the Grant County Braves, the Knights dusted themselves off and went on to defeat the University Heights Blazers, 2-0. 

    Freshman Colby Hood fired in the Knights’ first goal while sophomore Alan Guzman knocked in their second on an assist from senior Ryker Cassidy.
