  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: New look Lady...

    Kelly Wood is starting to see his new system click with the Marion County Lady Knights.
    “We seem to be getting better getting used to the new stuff,” Wood said. “We’re hoping we can play basketball within our system. It just takes time. We got to become automatic when it comes to playing.”
    The Lady Knights hit the court for the season opener last night against Bardstown. They host the East Jessamine Jaguars tomorrow night.

  • SWIMMING: Marion County set to...

    With a little extra preparation under their belts, the Marion County Aquaknights have their eyes set on their first meet of the 2017-18 season. The Aquaknights decided not to compete at the first scheduled meet on Nov. 18 in order to get more practice in.
    With that extra practice now in, Head Coach Brian Pirkle is expecting a solid performance from his team when they compete at T.K. Stone Elementary at 1 p.m., Dec. 2. Marion County will be teaming up with Nelson County and Thomas Nelson to take on Elizabethtown in the meet.

  • Vaught’s Views: Mike Pratt says...

    By Larry Vaught

    Before Kentucky’s season started, former UK All-American Mike Pratt had a warning — or bit of advice — for fans about the team’s point guard play.
    “So much is about confidence. That’s why some guys develop slower than others,” said Pratt, the analyst for the UK Radio Network. “If you look at (John) Calipari point guards, John Wall started slow and you could see his confidence build.

  • BASKETBALL: Knights score 94 in...

    The Marion County Knights’ offense was rolling, firing on all cylinders, and shooting just under 50 percent. If they can find more of those performances, who knows what the Knights can do?
    Marion County piled up 94 points in their final scrimmage, dominating from start to finish against the Whitfield Academy Wildcats Saturday afternoon at the King of the Bluegrass Jamboree. The Knights forced 26 turnovers and outrebounded the Wildcats 39-35.

  • BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    Lady Knights Head Coach Kelly Wood said he used Marion County’s final scrimmage Thursday against Bethlehem as a test gauge, trying to get an idea of what his team could do well at and what they needed work on as Wood brings along a new system.
    After two scrimmages, there’s still work to be done before things can really start coming together.
    “It’s going to be a process to figure out things,” Wood said. “I tried a little bit of everything to see where we were. We did some good things and we made some mistakes.”

    By Larry Vaught

    Bol Bol is a gifted 7-3 center who is ranked No. 1 at his position in the 2018 recruiting class. At one time he was thought to be a UK lean until he failed to make the USA team coached by John Calipari last season that included UK freshman P.J. Washington and UK signee Immanuel Quickley.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Irvin leading...

    With only three seniors and two juniors in the program, the Marion County Knights will showcase quite a bit of youth in the upcoming campaign. Despite the youth infusion for Marion County this season, Head Coach Montrelle Irvin hasn’t lessened his expectations for a team coming off a 15-15 campaign last year.
    “I’m still expecting big things out of them,” Irvin said, now in his seventh season at the helm for Marion County. “We’re going to be very scrappy, very fast.”
