  • Teams struggle in invitational


    The Marion County High School boys and girls golf teams hosted the Marion County Invitational at Rosewood Golf Club Saturday. Both teams struggled in the event and finished no better than fifth place.
    “I’m not sure if the team was a little amped up or if they were nervous since we were the host school of the invitational, but we didn’t play up to our ability,” Head Coach Chad Spalding said. “Taylor Howard was the bright spot of the tournament, for both the boys and girls.”

  • Knights improve record to 5-1
