    Friday evening the Marion County High School girls soccer team began their season with the first of two scrimmages. Their opponent was Mercer County, and the home team dropped the contest 4-0.

  • 2011 football season set to begin Friday in Campbellsville

    Marion County High School Head Football Coach Jeff Robbins is expecting this year to be different than any other year he’s been at MCHS.
    “This year, more than any of the previous seven that I have been here, we will rely upon a team effort,” Robbins said. “We have no superstars on the team this year. We do have several solid high school football players and if they will play together, believe in each other, and trust each other they can be very dangerous.”
