  • MCHS cross country team wants to...

    The Marion County High School Cross Country Team is planning to have fun and improve as a team this season, according to Head Coach Sherbie King.
    "Last season was one of the best seasons in a long time," he said. "I had a girls varsity team that placed second and third at several meets."
    The Knights will have a total of 20 players on this year's team but will have no senior leadership. Of the players on this year's team, King is expecting big things out of two returning runners and also a "bright new runner."

  • Tee Time: ‘You drive for show...

    By Dennis George

    I was playing golf with a gentleman earlier this year and noticed he was using one of the original Ping Anser putters. Of course, that is the iconic flatstick that Karsten Solheim designed in his garage in 1966 that at one time was used by half of the golfers on the PGA tour.
    My golfing partner said he received the club as a gift from his (former) girlfriend and it’s the only putter that he’s ever used.

  • FOOTBALL: Knights play well, but...

    The Marion County High School football team kicked off their 2016 campaign in scrimmage action at the Thomas Nelson Generals on Aug. 12, but fell short 27-20. The Knights and Generals played until halftime before the varsity teams stepped aside to allow the junior varsity teams to play in two 10-play rotations. There were also three rotations of red zone play between the varsity squads.

Commonly known as "A-Rod," Rodriguez played for 22 seasons in the majors and accumulated 3,114 hits and 696 home runs. In those 22 seasons, he played for the Mariners from 1994-2000, for the Rangers from 2001-2003, and for the Yankees for the remainder of his career.

  • GOLF: Knights split pair of...

    The Marion County Knights hit the green on Aug. 10 against the Campbellsville Eagles and Taylor County Cardinals at the Campbellsville Country Club. In what Knights Head Coach Joey Reed called an “ugly match,” the Knights pulled out the win, posting a 174 team score. The Cardinals posted 176 while the Eagles posted a 204.
    “All of the guys didn’t play the way I wanted them to,” Reed said. “It was ugly, but a win is a win.”
    Houston Raikes led the Knights in the match with a score of 41.

  • Wood and Waters: Dove season is...

    With dove season opening up in a couple of weeks, we need to go over some safety rules.
    First off: Don’t shoot anybody! Sounds simple but that’s what it all comes down to. When you’re in a dove field ya gotta know where everybody else is located. Which is why once everyone gets settled, ya don’t move around. Once you know where everyone else is stationed swing your shotgun (unloaded) so you’ll know your limits … to avoid shooting at anyone.

  • BOYS SOCCER: Knights bounce back...

    The Marion County Knights bounced back from two losses in scrimmage play last week with a 2-1 win against the Franklin County Flyers on Aug. 13.
    "We played very, very well in the game and were able to move the ball around well," Knights Head Coach Greg Conley said. "I feel we are definitely ready for the regular season."

  • Vaught’s Views: Davonte Robinson...

    By Larry Vaught

    Most years Davonte Robinson would have been the marquee in-state player in Kentucky’s football recruiting class.
    He led Henry Clay in tackles for three straight years (he had 100 tackles and one interception as a senior) and was the top-rated defensive back in the state with offers from Georgia, Louisville, Notre Dame, Ohio State and many others along with UK.
    He was a Class AAA 100-meter dash state champion as a sophomore and helped Henry Clay win team titles in 2015 and 2016.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Knights split...

    The Marion County Lady Knights began pre-season action in Bardstown versus the Tigers on Aug. 9, but fell in three sets, 21-25, 25-23, 31-37.
    Though the Lady Knights were unable to secure the win in a close game, Lady Knights Head Coach David Hibbard drew several positives from the scrimmage.
    "We played with energy and intensity all night," he said. "We started strong and finished strong in all three sets."
