  • When it all began

    Seventy-eight years ago, on March 17, 1939, the madness began in a small gym in northern Illinois. In attendance were roughly 15,000 people on hand to witness the birth of what we have come to love and embrace as the NCAA Tournament, full of madness and miracles. A mere eight teams were invited to Northwestern University's campus for the inaugural tournament.

    "It was the first time playing for some," Head Coach Noah Swencki said. "They won some and lost some, but they had fun and that's all that matters."

  • TRACK AND FIELD: Knights open...

    The Marion County High School track and field team traveled to the Green County All-Comers Meet in Green County March 16 in a girls-only outdoor meet. Head Coach Daniel Johnson said they performed well.
    "It was a great experience for all of the girls," Johnson said. "We will continue to learn and grow as the season progresses. I thought all of the girls did a great job for their first time out."

  • Vaught’s Views: Derek Willis is...

    By Larry Vaught

    After Kentucky survived against Wichita State Sunday, a lot of attention was given to the way De’Aaron Fox, Malik Monk and Bam Adebayo played, especially late in the game. However, not nearly enough attention was given to Derek Willis.
    Remember he’s the senior who has been blasted by coach John Calipari for three years and often criticized both by fans and the media for his lack of defense. However, he’s a big reason UK not only won Sunday, but also has won 13 straight games.

  • Power lifters

    Current and future Marion County football players traveled to Central Hardin High School on Saturday to compete in the state powerlifting meet. St. Charles Middle School students placed in the competition.

And Lucas Riley placed second in his 195 weight class.
