  • Knights still winless after loss...

    The Marion County Knights seniors got a great celebration before the game Friday evening against the West Jessamine Colts.

    The game’s end result, however, didn’t provide the best end to the celebratory night, as Marion County dropped to 0-7 on the season with a 35-12 loss to West Jessamine. The win assured the Knights a winless record on their home field — John J. Boswell Field — for the season.

  • Ballard leads Mercer County to...

    Opportunities were there for the Knights. The goals, on the other hand, were not.

    Brandon Ballard scored twice for the Titans and Mercer County defended their home field with a 4-0 victory over Marion County last Tuesday in Harrodsburg.

  • Lady Knights five-game winning...

    The Marion County Lady Knights have extended their winning streak to five after two wins this week over the Presentation Toppers and the Shelby County Lady Rockets, both on Elmer J. George Field.

    Marion County defeated the Toppers, 2-1, on Senior Night last Wednesday. The Lady Knights led 2-0 at the half — both goals coming from Libby Palagi. 

  • Fall Classic under way

    After nearly six months, the 2017 MLB regular season finally came to an end back on Sunday. One-hundred and sixty-two regular season games gave way to games with huge implications and stakes that couldn’t get much higher.

    The postseason is underway. The Fall Classic has begun.

    Back on Tuesday, the Minnesota Twins played the New York Yankees in the Big Apple in the AL Wild Card Game while the Arizona Diamondbacks hosted the Colorado Rockies today in the NL Wild Card Game. Win and you’re in; lose and your season is over.

  • Volleyball Lady Knights shut out...

    Before Marion County took on Green County last Tuesday, six seniors were honored, presented with gifts and given a round of applause from the crowd gathered at the Roby Dome.

    The good feelings from the pregame festivities quickly evaporated, with the Lady Knights falling in two sets, 22-25, 18-25, to the Lady Dragons in the final game for Marion County at the Roby Dome this season.

    After he was asked about joining Christi Thomas on the two-hour Countdown to Kickoff on the UK Radio Network, former Kentucky quarterback Freddie Maggard wasn’t sure what to expect.

    He had never met her and knew she would be the first female to host a pregame radio show for any Southeastern Conference football program if the idea worked.

  • Golf Knights finish third at...

    On Sunday night, before Marion County’s regional match, Ethan Spalding sent Joey Reed a text message.

    “Coach, I’m going to state. I don’t care what it takes but I’m going,” the senior golfer told his head coach.

    Indeed he is going, after shooting a 74 last Tuesday at the Campbellsville Country Club and making good on his prediction of a state tournament berth.

    “Pretty awesome if I must say so myself,” Reed said.


  • BOYS SOCCER: Miller, Perkins...

    For the third straight season, the Marion County Knights faced the Taylor County Cardinals in the district title game last week. A matchup billed as a clash between two bitter district foes eventually gave way to a one-sided affair. It was a disastrous outing for the reigning district champs.
    With the championship game moved to John J. Boswell Field, Taylor County dominated from start to finish in a 6-0 win over the Knights Thursday evening and avenged a 2-0 loss last season to Marion County in the title game.


    Lebanon resident Grant Smith was lamenting his bad luck while fishing in a farm pond off Cowherd Lane recently. "I usually come out here and burn it up fishing for blue gill," says the retired employee of Brown-Foreman in Louisville.
