    The night began with cheers and screams in a packed Roby Dome, but ended with a stunned silence as the Knights fell to the visiting LaRue County Hawks on senior night. 

    After the tip, it was a bad beginning to the game for the Knights, who shot only 11 percent (three for 27) from the three-point line, as they let the Hawks open up a 10 point lead, 14-4. That would be the score going into the second period.

    The 20th District tournament is just a week away, and the games will be played at the Roby Dome.

    On Feb. 25, the Lady Knights will begin their fight by hosting the Campbellsville Lady Eagles (3-21). It will be the third time the teams have met this season. The Lady Knights crushed the Lady Eagles 67-17 and 58-18 in both prior games.

    Whether she’s making points, setting up teammates to score, or just making it look easy, Marion County Lady Knight Haeli Howard does it all.

    The 14-year-old, 5-foot-4-inch tall freshman point guard got her start playing with the Lady Knights three years ago when she was in the sixth grade.
