  • VAUGHT’S VIEWS: Kentucky...

    By Larry Vaught

    Kentucky has lost two likely starters — offensive tackle Cole Mosier and receiver Dorian Baker — to season-ending injuries and the Cats don’t play their first game until Saturday at Southern Mississippi.
    Yet, Kentucky fans remain almost giddy about this team and what it can do this year. The Cats even received votes in the Associated Press preseason top 25 poll after finishing last year 7-6 and playing in the TaxSlayer Bowl.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Marion County...

    The Marion County Lady Knights made some mistakes and suffered through poor stretches of play during their match against Washington County. Worst of all, they fell in five sets (25-19,21-25,13-25,25-20,7-15) to their cross-county rival in Springfield on Aug. 22. 

  • Bowl Champions

    The 9-10-year-old Marion County Youth Football Team won the 2017 Mighty Laker Ron Finley Bowl Championship Saturday in Russell Springs. Marion County played McCreary County North. Final score was 33-0. The regular season will begin Sept. 9.

  • BOYS SOCCER: Red card derails...

    In a split second, a red card changed the direction of Marion County's season opener against John Hardin on Aug. 15.  
    Sixteen minutes into the game, Colby Hood was assessed a red card, forcing the Knights to play with only 10 men, and Marion County could never recover, falling 12-2 to the Bulldogs on Elmer J. George Soccer Field.  

  • CROSS COUNTRY: Team prepared to...

    The Marion County High School Cross Country team is getting used to a new head coach after Sherbie King resigned three months ago. Dallas Robinson is on board and ready to lead the team - who have about 12 runners on the roster. 
    "My hope is for the team to have fun, make memories and enjoy a sport that they can continue to do in life,” Robinson said. “Running has a way of drawing you in and if you can learn to love it, it stays with you.” 
    Performance wise, Robinson wants his team to set goals among other things. 

  • FOOTBALL: Hawks fly past Knights...

    Seventeen seconds in, LaRue County had already scored, returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown. 
    They were just getting started, racking up 42 first half points and blowing past the Marion County Knights 49-8 Friday evening on John J. Boswell Field. 
    "We went up against a very good opponent," Marion County Head Coach Allen Harmon said. "They have a lot of seniors, 22 I think, and they are very athletic."
