    The Marion County Lady Knights began their season with a disheartening loss at Sayre School on Aug. 22. The Lady Knights lost by mercy rule in the second half, 10-0.

    When I woke up last Tuesday, I didn’t know exactly what the day would hold. I knew I’d have to go to practice, eat breakfast, go back to practice, eat lunch, go back to practice, take a nap and go back to practice again. Cross country preseason training only really consists of eating, sleeping and running.

    The Marion County Lady Knights showed a lot of promise last week when they took on the North Hardin Lady Trojans and the Bardstown Lady Tigers in their first scrimmages of the season.
    “Our scrimmages both went well,” Coach David Hibbard said of his Lady Knights.
    Both scrimmages were timed, rather than played in the typical three-set format, so scoring was different than regular season gameplay.
