  • BASEBALL: Pioneers end Marion...

    The Knights were on the journey of a lifetime. 
    This squad, achieving so much in a season of historical proportions, found themselves on the edge of a state title game berth. One game away from a chance to do it all and achieve the sweetest of them all. 
    Marion County, oh so close to the championship game, couldn't overcome Simon Kenton's three-run sixth inning in a 5-2 loss to the Pioneers in the first semifinal game in the Whitaker Bank/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament on Friday.

    The 2017 Marion County Knights baseball team's magical run in the Whitaker Bank/KHSAA State Tournament came to an end Friday with a 5-2 loss to Simon Kenton. In reflecting on what this team accomplished during the season, we should first reflect on some of the back-story.

  • The City of Champions  

    The confetti falling on the court, the champagne raining down in the locker room, and the shiny trophy now in their hands, Golden State finally banished the haunting memories of last year's NBA Finals. The disaster that befell them then, blowing a 3-1 lead, were transformed into a distant memory. Only a win in the NBA Finals could do such a thing and set such a stage. 
    Kevin Durant wowed fans, Steph Curry dished and splashed and Golden State defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 on June 12 to win the Finals in five games. 

  • Vaught’s Views: Future Lady...

    By Larry Vaught

    It would have been easy to make a phone call, send a text or make a post on social media to announce her verbal commitment to the Kentucky basketball program.
    Junior Emma King of Lincoln County didn’t want to do that. She thought it would be more “special” for everyone if she went to Lexington to tell coach Matthew Mitchell face to face.

  • Never-give-up Knights not done...

    There was a sense of déjà vu in Marion County's dugout Saturday afternoon in Lexington.
    The Knights held a three-run lead two days earlier against Hazard. Now, against the Knox Central Panthers, the Knights led by six runs.
    Hazard rallied to tie Thursday's matchup with Marion County. Knox Central rallied, as well, to tie things up, putting six runs across in the sixth. The six-run lead for Marion County became a 7-7 tie.
    Another lead lost for the Knights.
    So, what did they do?

  • Cleveland is down but not out

    The Golden State Warriors are perfect no more. 
    Cleveland caught fire from three-point range in Game 4 last Friday, a host of Cavs poured in points, stellar play, tenacious effort and downright fire in the belly, holding off the Warriors' celebrations plans for another game in a 137-116 win that had it all. 
    A series lacking any zeal or excitement suddenly got jolted with some drama, flare and a stunning show of dominance from the Cavs. Those Cleveland Cavaliers, who seemed down and overwhelmed, aren't out just quite yet.

  • Vaught’s Views: Future UK track...

    By Larry Vaught

    It was almost 25 years ago that Kevin Young became the first person to run the 400-meter hurdles in less than 47 seconds. His time of 46.78 seconds set a world record — and 25 years later it still stands.
    Young, who won the gold medal in the 1992 Olympics while breaking the record set by Edwin Moses, was at the Maximum Velocity Track & Field Camp at Centre College in Danville last week sharing his expertise with youngsters from Kentucky and other states.
