  • Knights wrap up winning season

     An abrupt and unexpected defeat during the 20th District tournament brought an end to the Marion County Knights season last week. They fell to the Adair County Indians on a three-pointer at the horn to end the game 61-60.

  • Tell me your stories

     What a long week! Currently, it’s Sunday and I am just about worn thin and cranky!

    But rather than use this time to mope or be angry and write about what bothers me, I think I will use it to be constructive with this week’s column. 

  • Keeping up the tradition

    Through sheer adrenaline, sweat, determination, and skill, the Marion County Lady Knights took down the Adair County Lady Indians for the third time this season. The victory also marked the eighth consecutive year that the Lady Knights have secured the district title. 

    “It felt great winning the 20th District Tourney this season,” Lady Knights Coach Anthony Epps said in an email after the game. “That was one of our main goals going into this basketball season.”

  • Rough end for Knights

    It came down to one basket, one point, 1.8 seconds, and 23 feet. 

    On Feb 27, the Marion County Knights took on the Adair County Indians for the third time this season – it would be their last. 

    On paper, the Knights looked like the favorites; on the court it looked similar. Previously, the Knights (19-10) had defeated the Indians 70-63 and 70-55.

    But this time, the underdog came out on top.

  • Lady Knights win district title

    The Marion County Lady Knights have successfully defended their title as the girls 20th District champions.

    Friday night, Marion County defeated the Adair County Lady Indians, 59-51, in the district finals at the Roby Dome.

    Marion County defeated Campbellsville, 60-32, in the first semifinal match-up. Adair County topped Taylor County, 58-41, in the other semifinal to set up the championship game.

    Both Marion County (15-14) and Adair County (18-10) will advance to the 5th Region Tournament. 

  • Jaguars evade Lady Knights

    The Marion County Lady Knights rehashed old history with the Mercy Academy Jaguars on Feb. 19. The Lady Knights lost 56-51 on their own turf and the game marks the end of their regular season.

    “[I’m] very proud of the way we played all year overall,” Epps said. “We had some highs and some lows, but overall it was a good year. We got better at some areas that we struggled with early, but still have a high ceiling in the future.”

    The night began with cheers and screams in a packed Roby Dome, but ended with a stunned silence as the Knights fell to the visiting LaRue County Hawks on senior night. 

    After the tip, it was a bad beginning to the game for the Knights, who shot only 11 percent (three for 27) from the three-point line, as they let the Hawks open up a 10 point lead, 14-4. That would be the score going into the second period.
