    Marion County Head Coach Noah Swencki said the Knights’ lack of matches have hurt his team’s preparation for the Heartland Conference meet.

    How good is Kentucky signee Tyler Herro?
    The 6-5 guard from Whitnall High School in Greenfield, Wis., has a fan in Rivals.com recruiting writer Krysten Peek.
    “He is the best shooter in the (2018 recruiting) class from beyond the arc (3-point line),” said Peek. “He could be the best pure scorer in the class.
    “I saw him in one workout where he did not miss a single shot. He can shoot a 3 like a lay-up. He is just a pure shooter and there are not many of them out there.”

    The road to the coveted top seed in the 20th District Tournament begins now. The Knights will wrap up their trip to Dodgertown in Florida with games against Letcher County Central and Springboro today and a game against Greenup County Friday.

  • Marion County beats rain for two...

    The rain managed to hold off long enough to allow Marion County to get two tennis matches in before the team takes time off the court for Spring Break.

    Marion County began last week against a rebuilding Nelson County team at Graham Memorial Park.

    “We expected to win that one,” Marion County coach Noah Swencki said. “They’re trying to rebuild so they had a bunch of new players. Not much experience. It was pretty one-sided.”

  • Former UK walk-on impresses NFL...

    He came to Kentucky with a huge chip on his shoulder. He was a three-sports standout at Louisville St. Xavier but the only way he got on the UK football team was to accept a walk-on offer from then offensive coordinator Neal Brown.

    “I thought I deserved to have (scholarship) offers, but not getting them kept me working really hard,” said senior receiver Charles Walker. “I got to play special teams. Then I got in the game at receiver. I realized I was pretty good at football.”

  • BASEBALL: Knights retreat to...

    Sunny weather. Beautiful beaches. Warm temperatures. Sounds like the picture perfect vacation. For Marion County baseball, it will be the weather they’ll hit the diamond under.
    After Spring turned right back to Winter last week, canceling several games and matches for Marion County sports, the Knights will head south to not just soak up the warm weather, but play four games at Historic Dodgertown at Vero Beach.
