  • Making small deposits

    It’s zero degrees outside but that doesn’t keep Dallas Robinson from sweating. Steam rolls off his body and his heart pounds as he stands ready to push the bobsled into motion with his other teammates. He knows he could die. It’s happened to other athletes in the past. After all, he’s about to get on a sled that will reach up to 95 miles per hour and he’s wearing limited protective gear. He could be ejected. The sled could flip over. But all he’s thinking about is the push.

  • Baker claims Home Run Derby...

    By John Overby

    Beau Baker was “very excited” when he was chosen to compete in the recent Baseball Youth All-Star Challenge in Branson, Missouri, but even that feeling was nothing compared to how he felt after winning the 10-year-old Home Run Derby and being a contributor on a team that would go on to win the event’s championship.
    “It was a good experience,” Beau said. “Not a bunch of kids get to do this … You’ve gotta take advantage of it.”

  • BOYS SOCCER: Knights win season...

    The Marion County Knights finally hit the soccer field for the season opener on Aug. 16 against the Campbellsville Eagles and notched a 6-3 win, powered by four goals from junior Logan Spalding, who played his first soccer game since the end of the 2014 season. He had left the team to focus on motor cross.
    "Logan absolutely exploded in this match," Head Coach Greg Conley said.

    For the past six decades, 78-year-old Don Wood has been a fixture in Kentucky golf circles.
    The easygoing gentleman is well known to golfers in the area.
    Since 1961, he’s made the trip to Bardstown nearly every Sunday during the golf season to play golf with the likes of John Prewitt, Randall Burba, Haydon Spalding, Tommie Hurst and others.

  • Knights bolt to win season...

    The records will show that a flash of lightning early in the second quarter stopped the Marion County-Nelson County football game with the Knights leading 33-7.
    However, lightning actually struck much earlier - on the game’s first play from scrimmage when the Knights’ Trey Downs took a hand-off from Mason Sullivan and scampered 51 yards for a touchdown.

  • So close

    In sports, there have been many times where a team was so close to victory that many had already proclaimed dishearteningly or joyfully, "The game is over!" After all, only one yard separated this team from the end zone or a team held a two-point lead with only a second or two left. The odds were stacked in their favor and they were prepared to take the lead. It was all going right and then, well, it all changed in the blink of an eye.

  • GIRLS SOCCER: Lady Knights...

    The Marion County Lady Knights dropped their season opener against the Grayson County Lady Cougars 10-0.
    The Lady Cougars opened scoring at the 33:34 mark with a goal that sailed over goalkeeper Carrington McKay's head. She finished the game with five saves but gave up seven goals before Sophia Kroschke stepped in, recording three saves but giving up three more goals.

  • Woods and Waters: Discussing...

    Over the past couple of weeks we’ve talked about the upcoming dove season … traditionally Sept. 1.
    We’ve talked about hunting the birds and safety. So now we’ll talk about something that very few people I hunt with use: Decoys and dove whistles.
    To clarify, most dove hunters go out the first couple of hunts in September, then their season is over. And to be honest, decoys and dove whistles (calls) aren’t really necessary when hunting the young, dumb birds looking for something to eat!

  • Vaught’s Views: Kentucky...

    By Larry Vaught

    No one wanted to talk about any internal problems on the Kentucky football team last year. Never mind that the issues seemed obvious to almost everyone.
    During preseason camp this month, a few players have hinted that this year's team is far more united.
    Quarterback Drew Barker, who started the final two games last season, said there was "no doubt" the team was more united and had more purpose. He credits new offensive coordinator Eddie Gran for much of that on the offensive side.
