    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.

    With another win notched in their belt, the Marion County Lady Knights opened their second double-header of the week on Feb. 8. For the second time this season, the Lady Knights defeated their opponent, the Washington County Commanderettes, 54-28.
