  • Track teams win at home

    Marion County High School hosted a track meet April 17, and the Knights and Lady Knights fared well.
    "For the first time all year it was a solid effort by all the kids across the board," Brown said. "We still have a few kinks to work out, but it is getting there. We had a little more competition at this meet, seven other schools, and I thought we responded to that. We now need to focus on the next two weeks. I am really looking forward to the next three weeks."
    Individual results for the girls' team are as follows:
