  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Knights knock...

    Lady Knights Head Coach David Hibbard said his team had been working to perform when the pressure was on. Perhaps that work paid off, as the Lady Knights won two straight close sets to defeat the Thomas Nelson Generals, 25-16, 25-23, 26-24, at the Roby Dome on Oct. 3.
    "This was one of the most consistently solid performances of the season," Hibbard said. "We played at the same level for three straight sets, which is something we have been working very hard to do. Our offense clicked very well with us," Hibbard said.

  • Hardin sisters dominate Bourbon...

  • Father, son duo complete...

    Gary Wilkerson and his 10-year-old son, Cade, ran the Pokey Pig 5K and decided to add the firefighter challenge to the race, which means they ran the race in full turnout out gear. “Lebanon's next recruit in training,” Gary said.

  • Lady Knights win again

    The Marion County Lady Knights have now won more games this season than they did in the previous two seasons combined.
    A 2-1 win against the Breckinridge County Lady Tigers (2-12) gave the Lady Knights (2-11-1) their second win of the season.
    "It was good to get another win," Lady Knights Head Coach Daniel Johnson said. "We did many things well on offense and we were able to put people in different positions and played well."

  • Knights fall to Colts

    The Marion County Knights' losing streak has reached six games after a 57-21 loss against the West Jessamine Colts on Friday, Sept. 30. The loss sent the Knights to 1-6.
    "We actually came out playing good football," Knights Head Coach Allen Harmon said. "However, later on, we had some breakdowns in the secondary that allowed them to score."
    The Colts (3-4) would take advantage of the breakdowns in the Knights secondary several times in the first half to take a 37-6 lead into the half.

  • Knights drop two home games

    Two goals in five minutes. Four goals in 10 minutes, and six goals by halftime. The No. 9 Mercer County Titans turned their game against the Marion County Knights on Sept. 27 into a 9-0 blowout win behind a quick start and missed opportunities by the Knights who were in action for the first time since clinching the No. 1 seed in the district tournament.

  • Lady Knights drop two

    Poor defensive play doomed the Marion County Lady Knights in a loss against the Russell County Lakers on Sept. 26. The Lady Knights lost 19-25, 23-25.
    "We were totally undisciplined in our defensive rotations tonight," Lady Knights Head Coach David Hibbard said. "We simply could not keep the Lakers from doing whatever they wanted on offense. We tried to make rallies in both sets at the end but our defense simply let us down. We also did not handle their aggressive serving well. This was one of our worst serve-receive matches of the whole season.

  • Lebanon runners win Tri-County...

  • One more time

    Sports are unpredictable, and that's what makes them exciting. That's what makes people watch, and that's one of the many reasons the stadiums are filled.

  • Season ends at region, Knights...

    Bryce Spalding missed a trip to the state tournament by one shot, and the Knights, finishing with a team score of 346, failed to advance to the state tournament as well. The Knights’ season came to an end at the regional tournament at the Bardstown Country Club at Maywood last week.
    Head Coach Joey Reed remained positive despite the disappointing end to his first season as the head coach.
