  • SOFTBALL: Mattingly pitches perfect game 

    Perfection sometimes takes a long time to achieve. 
    For Haley Mattingly, it took a mere five innings. 
    Haley Mattingly pitched a perfect game, striking out 12 batters, including the first nine she faced, as Marion County blew past the Thomas Nelson Generals 14-0 Thursday evening in the Lady Knights’ season opener. 
    "You don’t see many perfect games," Marion County Head Coach Jonathan Spalding said. 

  • TENNIS: Knights ready to hit tennis court  

    After the scheduled season-opener against Hart County Monday, the Knights will welcome their cross-county rival, Washington County, to Marion County High School Friday afternoon and then travel to Nelson County March 20. 
    Knights Head Coach Noah Swencki is expecting good performances and solid growth in the first few games of the season. 

  • TRACK AND FIELD: Knights ready to take season by storm

     

  • BASEBALL: Coach has high expectations for Knights

    The Marion County Knights came up just short in the 20th District Tournament championship game last year, falling 5-4 to Taylor County. Then they lost 3-2 to the Central Hardin Bruins in the Fifth Region Tournament. 
    They’re surely looking to make some noise come postseason, and Head Coach Patrick Campbell expects great things out of this year’s squad, which will consist of 32 varsity, junior varsity and freshman players. 
    “We have a lot of experience and leadership returning this year,” Campbell said.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights fall to Panthers in region semi-final

    Jada Stinson's four three-pointers in the first quarter and six straight points from Elizabethtown to start the second quarter threatened to turn Friday evening's Fifth Region Tournament semifinal into a blowout, forcing Marion County Head Coach Kenny Mills to call a timeout to gather his players and keep the wheels from falling off.
    What did he tell them? Step it up, or else you're going home. 

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Knights prepare to defend district title

    After a scrimmage at Garrard County Monday evening, the Marion County Lady Knights will kick off the regular season at 6 p.m., tomorrow, at home against the Thomas Nelson Generals. The Lady Knights will be seeking to defend their district title as they come off a 25-8 campaign last season that included a 5-0 win against the Taylor County Lady Cardinals to clinch the district championship. Marion County, however, was blown out in the Fifth Region Tournament, 11-1, by the Hart County Lady Raiders. 

  • TENNIS: Williams resigns, Swencki hired as tennis coach

    Despite new leadership for Marion County High School’s tennis team, the goals are still very much the same as the 2017 campaign gets underway. 

  • SWIMMING: Aquaknights season comes to an end

    The Marion County Aquaknights’ season came to an end at the regional swim meet at the Russell County Natatorium Complex in Russell Springs, Feb. 10-11.
    The boys 200 medley relay team consisting of Justin Spalding, Brandon Miles, Eli Nelson and Matthew Miles finished with a time of 1:53.33 in the championship and 1:54.19 in the preliminaries, finishing third and second respectively and advancing to championship rounds.   

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights' season ends against Taylor

    The Knights haven’t been able to find a winning formula against the Taylor County Cardinals this season, and it cost them dearly this time. 
    Taylor County shot 57.6 percent from the field and TreVon Smith scored 17 of his game-high 35 points in the first half as the Cardinals coasted to a 95-73 win Thursday evening in the 20th District Tournament. It was Marion County’s third loss to Taylor County, and ended the Knights’ season. 

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights win district title, advance to region semifinals

    UPDATE: Lady Knights advance to region semifinals
    The Marion County Lady Knights defeated the LaRue County Lady Hawks 55-48 Monday evening to advance to the semifinals in the Fifth Region Tournament. The Lady Knights play the Elizabethtown Panthers at 6 p.m., Friday, March 3, in the Roby Dome.
