High School Sports

  • Golf season is in full swing

    Both the boys and girls golf teams will have a lot of building back to do from last season. On the boys side, the team last year won over half of their matches and finished in the top 10 in a couple of tournaments, although they did not play well in the regional tournament. However, three of the top five guys graduated last season, with the team losing some talented seniors. Joseph Elder will be missed, as well as Blair Gorley, who now plays at St. Catharine College, and Aaron Hamilton.

  • Soccer teams eye district titles

    The Marion County High School Knights and Lady Knights soccer teams have been practicing heavily over the past several weeks in preparation for the upcoming season. The Knights team lost a lot of key components from last year's squad that made it to the semi-finals of the district tournament. Nine seniors, including offensive weapons John Southall and Christian Carmona, graduated from the team. Replacing Southall and Carmona "will be a tall order," Head Coach Greg Conley said, but he thinks the team is up to it.

  • Lady Knights win season-opening scrimmages

    The Marion County Lady Knights volleyball team competed in two scrimmages last week, both on the road.

The Lady Knights were able to win all three scrimmage matches, going into the regular season on a positive note. The team was in action last night at Thomas Nelson High School, but results were unknown at press time.

  • Epps de-commits from Louisville

    Marion County High School Lady Knight Makayla Epps broke off her commitment with the University of Louisville recently.
    "At the time of my commitment I was only 15 years old," Epps said. "Now, a couple of years later I realized that I wanted to make 100 percent sure since I will be spending four or five years there."
    Epps noted that the Lady Cardinals are still where she may end up playing her college ball, but she has now reopened her options. She also noted that another school has made an offer to her, but she has not made any decisions.

  • Volleyball season right around the corner

    With school starting in Marion County in just a few days, that means only one thing - the start of high school sports. The team that will play the first organized event of the new school year is the Lady Knights volleyball team.

  • Voice of the basketball Knights - Jerry Reynolds

    Since 1987, Jerry Reynolds has announced boys basketball games at Marion County High School. During the past 26 seasons, Reynolds has seen a lot of basketball and two teams he remembers the most during his tenure.
    "The 1992 and 1993 teams stand out in my mind because they went to state," he said. "In 1992, we went to the state for the first time in school history, and in 1993, we won the state championship. It just doesn't get any better than that."
