High School Sports

  • Players honored at banquet

    The Marion County Lady Knights volleyball team held their annual awards banquet at Marion County High School Tuesday of last week. Several players earned awards for their efforts and performances throughout the 2011 season.
    Statistical awards were first given out at the awards banquet, starting with Most Aces in a Season. Shakyra Young won this award with 86 on the season.  

  • Knights pick up win in final scrimmage

    The Knights traveled to Southern High School in Louisville Saturday for their final preseason scrimmage. The freshman, junior varsity, and varsity teams were all in action.
    “Our efforts were much improved over last week,” Head Coach Montrelle Irvin said. “We have to continue to play hard and out work our opponents. Our defense makes our offense go. If we can control the boards and limit our turnovers, we will be fine.”

  • Ready to Rumble

    In the first ranking of the top 25 teams in Kentucky that came out Thursday, the Lady Knights find themselves in familiar territory. For the majority of the past couple of seasons, Marion County has been ranked in the top 10, and finds themselves in the No. 2 spot in the preseason rankings. The No. 1 ranked team is DuPont Manual, the team that sent Marion County home from last year’s state tournament.

  • State Champs

    The 7th and 8th grade Lebanon Middle School girls basketball teams played in the state championship games at Lexington Christian Academy Sunday. The 7th grade team took on Mason County while the 8th grade team played Elkhorn Middle School.
    In the first game of the morning, the Lebanon Middle School 7th grade team was able to defeat Mason County. The Lady Patriots held a 12-5 lead at halftime, and never looked back as they scored 11 points in each of the third and fourth quarters. Lebanon Middle School won by a final score of 34-25, taking home the state championship title.

  • Players honored at annual banquet

    The Marion County Lady Knights soccer team held their annual postseason awards banquet Wednesday, where several players were honored for their performances during the season.
    Sophomore Colleen Rakes took home the 110 Percent Award, while freshman Noel Obata received the Most Outstanding Offensive Player Award.  

  • Knights show promise

    The Marion County High School boys basketball team hit the road last week to open up their preseason with the first of two scrimmages.
    The Fern Creek Tigers hosted the Knights in the second annual Fern Creek “Jam”boree, and came away with a 76-43 victory in the varsity scrimmage. The junior varsity Knights also took on the Tigers, and also were defeated 43-32.

  • Lady Knights defeat Sacred Heart with no trouble

    The Marion County Lady Knights traveled to Bullitt East High School in Shepherdsville Saturday afternoon to begin preseason play. The Lady Knights faced the Sacred Heart Valkyries in a junior varsity/varsity double header as part of the 10th annual Bullitt East High Potential Showcase.
    The game was played in two 20-minute segments, in which the score was reset at the beginning of each. Marion County won each of the segments rather easily, and showed signs of playing to their full capabilities.

  • Knights look to improve record this season

    With a new head coach at the helm, expectations are high for the Marion County Knights basketball team. Montrelle Irvin, who was hired in mid-July, hopes to take the Knights to a return trip to the regional tournament and hopefully further. After a somewhat surprising run into the regional tournament last season, this year’s version of the Knights looks to improve on last year’s winning record, the first since 2005-06, which finished 16-12.

  • Lady Knights look to take next step

    Last season, the Marion County High School Lady Knights basketball team did something no other girls team has ever done - advance to the final four of the Sweet 16.
    But that’s not the ultimate goal the team has in mind this year.
    The team hopes to make a return trip to Diddle Arena, and this time come away with some hardware.
    With the loss of only one senior from last year’s squad, Shakila Goodin, the Lady Knights are fully loaded for another deep run into the postseason. Key new additions to the team will also help their cause.

  • Seniors compete in All-Star Tournament

    Three Marion County High School senior golfers were selected to participate in the Kentucky Golf Coaches Association Senior All-Star Tournament held at Heritage Hills Golf Club in Shepherdsville Saturday. Seniors Amy Brown, Olivia Carrico, and Joseph Elder were selected to the teams based on their performance on the course throughout the season and from coach’s recommendations. Eighty two players were selected, 42 boys and 40 girls.
