  • So-so seasons

    Everyone wants a winning season of course, because who likes losing? No one. However, sports teams get caught in just a "so-so season," where it's not great but it's not terrible. 

  • Deadline to pre-register for...
  • I’m a bad weather wuss

    I know you can ‘burn out’ the barrel of a rifle by shooting a substantial number of hot loads through it. But, I wonder if it’s possible to do the same thing by cleaning it too much.
    The reason I ask is that all I’ve been able to do with my predator rifles for the last couple of weeks is clean them. Not from shooting them a lot, but out of sheer boredom! Right now I’d put my guns up against one just coming off some companies assembly benches!

  • Knights pick up win over Thomas...

    Senior guard Anton Cowherd scored 24 points, 10 rebounds and seven steals to lead the Marion County Knights to a 36-point victory over the Thomas Nelson Generals on Saturday night.

    Anthony Tonge and Jalen Powell added 10 points apiece in the 80-44 Marion County victory. Tonge and Isaac Lanham each grabbed eight rebounds.

    Ten Knights (14-10) scored in the win.

  • Short-handed Lady Knights drop...

    Last week was a rough one for the Marion County Lady Knights. Playing short-handed throughout the week, the Lady Knights lost all three of their games.

    “It is all day to day with our players being out,” Marion County Coach Anthony Epps wrote in an email. “We will not rush anyone back unless we deem them physically ready to play. The players health is more important at this moment.”

  • District basketball tournaments...

    With the regular season winding down this week, Marion County’s basketball teams are scheduled to begin postseason play next week. Both tournaments will be held at Campbellsville High School.

    The Lady Knights have won the 20th District tournament eight years in a row. They enter this year’s tournament as the No. 2 seed with a 12-13 overall record and a 4-2 record against district foes.

     The Mid-Kentucky Bass Anglers met Sunday and set our 2015 tournament. 

    I told you last week about our March 22 Cabin Fever Tournament, which is an open tournament to kick off the 2015 season!

    The rest of the schedule and launch times are as follows:

  • Crume returns to lead football...

    Former Eastern Kentucky running back Corey Crume has been named the new football coach at Marion County High School, according to MCHS Principal Mike Abell.
    Crume is taking over from the late Jeff Robbins, who died Nov. 16, 2014. Crume is a 1996 graduate of Marion County High.
    “Since I started coaching football ... one of the goals I had was to come home and try to build a program that our county, the place where I grew up, would be proud of,” Crume said.
