  • Record-setting feat just Divine

    This week, I am going to use my column as a shout out to a Marion County High School athlete, one who participates in track and field. This athlete is a junior who has high expectations for himself as he competes in several events at each track meet. This athlete also wants to go to college and become a decathlete at whichever school he decides to attend in track and field. This athlete is Brooks Divine.

  • Softball team wins two big district games

    The Marion County Lady Knights softball team was scheduled to play in the Bullitt County Invitational this past weekend. However, due to the rain, the tournament was cancelled and will not be rescheduled. The Lady Knights were also in action on Monday and Tuesday of last week, competing in district games against Campbellsville and Taylor County. Marion County won both of those outings, taking their overall record to 10-3 and their district standings to 3-1.
    According to Head Coach Todd Spalding, when he took this job this is the way he envisioned his team playing.

  • 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:

  • Track team wins home meet

    The Marion County Knights track team hosted a meet for the first time this season, and performed well. Despite only four teams showing up for the meet limiting the competition, both the boys and girls teams finished in first place overall. The boys team collected 197 points while the girls team collected 61 points.
    "We had a few teams that didn't show, so our times were not up to standard," Head Coach Keith Brown said. "Some of our kids just did not perform up to their capabilities."
    Coach Brown also commented on the preparation of the team.
