  • BOYS SOCCER: Different faces,...

    Marion County lost 10 seniors from last season's district championship squad and also lost its leading scorer. Despite that lost firepower, Knights Head Coach Greg Conley still has high expectations for the 2017 team.
    "I still have very high expectations," said the veteran coach, in his 11th season as head coach at Marion County. "I say 'still' because Logan Spalding is not returning this season. Obviously, he's a very, very good player and we're going to miss him, but we're making plans without him."

    They might be young, but that isn't holding Daniel Johnson back from setting some high expectations for the 2017 girls soccer team. In fact, he believes that come October, the Marion County Lady Knights will be hoisting the district trophy.
    "We're going to be really young," the second-year head coach said. "I didn't think it was possible for us to be any younger than we were last year. We’ll probably start five freshmen. We want to improve every day and get better. We're going to win district this year.”

    They were down but never out. 
    They almost pulled it off. 
    Marion County just couldn't push across the tying run in the sixth inning as their season came to an end in a 2-1 loss to Evergreen Park (Illinois) on Friday in the Little League Central Tournament in Indianapolis.
