  • BOYS SOCCER: Knights win...

    The Knights were here last year. Same team. Same field. Same things at stake.
    Different result this time, as the Knights left their home field for the final time this season in triumphant fashion.
    The Knights avenged a 2-1 loss in last year's district championship against the Taylor County Cardinals with a 2-0 win Thursday night against the Cardinals to take home the district championship for the first time since 2013.

  • CROSS COUNTRY: Knights compete...

    The Marion County High School cross country teams hit the road for the Heartland Conference meet on Oct. 13, finishing third overall.
    "The team overall has improved significantly even though overall times were slow for the 5K. I am very proud of them," Head Coach Sherbie King said.
    In the boys' 2600-meter run, Harry VanWhy finished with a time of 11:24.

  • FOOTBALL: Jaguars push past...

    Trey Downs found an opening, shot through it, and 79 yards later, crossed the goal line to give the Knights a 24-21 lead against the East Jessamine Jaguars in the third quarter.
    Then the Jaguars outscored the Knights 19-6 to hand the Knights a 41-30 loss on John J. Boswell Friday night.
    "I am very happy with the team," Knights Head Coach Allen Harmon said."We came out and played physical. I challenged the boys to come out with physicality and intensity. We did that.”

  • Sometimes, that’s the way it goes

    Sometimes, an offensive lineman gets beat so badly by a defensive player that he has no choice but to commit a holding penalty in order to avoid a possible disastrous situation.
    Now wait, a holding penalty is disastrous, you say! Your team is pushed back 10 yards, and now your team has to gain 10 more yards on top of the yards already needing to be gained. Yards are already hard enough to come by, and now it became a little harder.

  • GIRLS SOCCER: Lady Knights...

    The Marion County Lady Knights' season ended on Oct. 12 with a 3-0 loss against the Taylor County Cardinals in the opening round of the district tournament.
    "We weren't able to generate anything offensively. Credit to Taylor County's defense," Lady Knights Head Coach Daniel Johnson said.

  • Woods and Waters: Be ready for...

    I know this is a week early, but you might need the extra time to change your plans. As you know, Oct. 31 is Halloween. And, it’s customary to dress up. Now you can dress up as a pirate, or cowboy, or maybe even an action figure. But, no matter how strong the urge, don’t dress up as a clown! This year, clowns aren’t one of the “in” things to be dressed as. Besides, you could be harmed.

    By Larry Vaught

    During his time as an assistant coach at Texas A&M, Rick Stansbury got to see Houston point guard De'Aaron Fox play often. Stansbury, who was named head coach at Western Kentucky in the spring, says the Kentucky freshman reminds him of NBA standout Russell Westbrook of Oklahoma City.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Knights shift...

    With only three games left before the start of the district tournament in Adair County, the Marion County Lady Knights looked to put a few wins in the win column, but could only muster one win in three matches.
    The Lady Knights had a tall order against the Central Hardin Lady Bruins, ranked No. 20 in the state, on Oct. 10. The Lady Knights fell in three sets (10-25, 16-25, 16-25).
