  • Lady Knights return - a year older

    A trip to state was nice but the Lady Knights have higher aspirations this year.
    The Marion County High School girls’ basketball team finished with a 33-2 record last season, one of the best outings in program history.
    “I think our first goal is to get back to state tournament,” Lady Knights Head Coach Trent Milby said. “These girls have that on their mind and have hopes of winning state championship.”
    How does a team that returns three of the state’s top prospects and a preseason number one ranking reach that goal?

    A little bit of old and a little bit of new will lead the Marion County High School boys’ basketball team this season.
    The little bit of old is the return of Chuck Elder, who spent last season on the bench after wrecking his knee during football season. The little bit of new is the start of former MCHS star Antony Epps’ career as a head coach.
