  • Knight Madness
  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Turnovers a problem for Knights in final scrimmage

    Thirty-five turnovers derailed the Knights against the Iroquois Raiders Saturday, Nov. 19, at the King of the Bluegrass Showcase in Fairdale. In the final scrimmage for the Knights, they lost the first three quarters against the Raiders and tied the last one (12-22, 18-19, 12-18, 20-20). 
    "We came out slow," Knights Head Coach Montrelle Irvin said. "We had lots of turnovers in the first quarter and in the second quarter through the rest of the game, we continued with the turnovers."

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights gearing up for run in 2016

    Knights Head Coach Montrelle Irvin advanced to the Fifth Region Tournament last season, which was his fifth season coaching the Marion County Knights.
    He's looking to go further in his sixth.
    "The expectations are high this season," Irvin said. "The core of our team is back, and with everyone back, we're looking to revisit region and go a little further. We knew we were going to take our bumps and bruises last season. Being young, we had to grow up quickly. I felt we did a great job of that."

    Todd Spalding knew Jordan Thomas was something special when he coached the Bethlehem senior softball player when she was 10 years old.
    “I was coaching a 14-year-old travel team and she was on that team,” he said. “I told myself right then that she would be the first NCAA Division I player that I ever coached.”
    Spalding’s prediction came through on Friday when Thomas signed a letter of intent to play softball at Western Kentucky University.
