  • BASEBALL: Coach has high...

    The Marion County Knights came up just short in the 20th District Tournament championship game last year, falling 5-4 to Taylor County. Then they lost 3-2 to the Central Hardin Bruins in the Fifth Region Tournament. 
    They’re surely looking to make some noise come postseason, and Head Coach Patrick Campbell expects great things out of this year’s squad, which will consist of 32 varsity, junior varsity and freshman players. 
    “We have a lot of experience and leadership returning this year,” Campbell said.

  • All in, all the time
  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    Jada Stinson's four three-pointers in the first quarter and six straight points from Elizabethtown to start the second quarter threatened to turn Friday evening's Fifth Region Tournament semifinal into a blowout, forcing Marion County Head Coach Kenny Mills to call a timeout to gather his players and keep the wheels from falling off.
    What did he tell them? Step it up, or else you're going home. 

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Knights prepare...

    After a scrimmage at Garrard County Monday evening, the Marion County Lady Knights will kick off the regular season at 6 p.m., tomorrow, at home against the Thomas Nelson Generals. The Lady Knights will be seeking to defend their district title as they come off a 25-8 campaign last season that included a 5-0 win against the Taylor County Lady Cardinals to clinch the district championship. Marion County, however, was blown out in the Fifth Region Tournament, 11-1, by the Hart County Lady Raiders. 

  • TENNIS: Williams resigns,...

    Despite new leadership for Marion County High School’s tennis team, the goals are still very much the same as the 2017 campaign gets underway. 

  • SWIMMING: Aquaknights season...

    The Marion County Aquaknights’ season came to an end at the regional swim meet at the Russell County Natatorium Complex in Russell Springs, Feb. 10-11.
    The boys 200 medley relay team consisting of Justin Spalding, Brandon Miles, Eli Nelson and Matthew Miles finished with a time of 1:53.33 in the championship and 1:54.19 in the preliminaries, finishing third and second respectively and advancing to championship rounds.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights'...

    The Knights haven’t been able to find a winning formula against the Taylor County Cardinals this season, and it cost them dearly this time. 
    Taylor County shot 57.6 percent from the field and TreVon Smith scored 17 of his game-high 35 points in the first half as the Cardinals coasted to a 95-73 win Thursday evening in the 20th District Tournament. It was Marion County’s third loss to Taylor County, and ended the Knights’ season. 

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Epps leaving...

    Makayla Epps has been around the sport of basketball her entire life. It's taken her on quite the journey. She helped the Marion County Lady Knights win the state championship in 2013, and she's become the face of University of Kentucky women's basketball.
    She's loved every moment of it.
    "I thank God and my coaches that have pushed me to become a better player,” Epps said. “I've always had a love of basketball. The fans make it fun. The good players, competition make it fun. So many different things make it fun."
