  • Trying something new

    Such a thing scares many people. It’s new and in many cases uncomfortable. Quite frankly, change can be scary. What can I expect? How will this benefit me? What might the challenges be? All these questions, uncertainties and doubts as to the benefits can creep into one’s mind, making change seem like such a daunting and overwhelming step to take.

  • GIRLS SOCCER: Lady Knights’...

    Ethan Spalding shot an 83 at the state tournament on Oct. 3 at the Bowling Green Country Club.
    “Overall, it was an awesome experience not only for myself but for Ethan,” Marion County Head Coach Joey Reed said. “I feel like Ethan held his emotions in check really well. He didn't seem nervous or too excited. He played well I thought. Had a couple of bad breaks but didn't let those faze him at all.”
    The cut to make it past day one was 77. Spalding missed the cut.

    By Larry Vaught

    He might not be playing, but receiver Dorian Baker has not been forgotten by Kentucky receivers coach Lamar Thomas.
    Baker suffered a fracture/dislocation in his left ankle during a preseason scrimmage in August. He originally hoped rehab would help him get back on the field this season but he understood he likely would miss the entire season, something coach Mark Stoops confirmed last week.

    By Larry Vaught

    After he was asked about joining Christi Thomas on the two-hour Countdown to Kickoff on the UK Radio Network, former Kentucky quarterback Freddie Maggard wasn’t sure what to expect.

    He had never met her and knew she would be the first female to host a pregame radio show for any Southeastern Conference football program if the idea worked.

  • Golf Knights finish third at...

    On Sunday night, before Marion County’s regional match, Ethan Spalding sent Joey Reed a text message.

    “Coach, I’m going to state. I don’t care what it takes but I’m going,” the senior golfer told his head coach.

    Indeed he is going, after shooting a 74 last Tuesday at the Campbellsville Country Club and making good on his prediction of a state tournament berth.

    “Pretty awesome if I must say so myself,” Reed said.


  • Fall Classic under way

    After nearly six months, the 2017 MLB regular season finally came to an end back on Sunday. One-hundred and sixty-two regular season games gave way to games with huge implications and stakes that couldn’t get much higher.

    Back on Tuesday, the Minnesota Twins played the New York Yankees in the Big Apple in the AL Wild Card Game while the Arizona Diamondbacks hosted the Colorado Rockies today in the NL Wild Card Game. Win and you’re in; lose and your season is over.

  • Volleyball Lady Knights shut out...

    Before Marion County took on Green County last Tuesday, six seniors were honored, presented with gifts and given a round of applause from the crowd gathered at the Roby Dome.

    The good feelings from the pregame festivities quickly evaporated, with the Lady Knights falling in two sets, 22-25, 18-25, to the Lady Dragons in the final game for Marion County at the Roby Dome this season.
