    The Marion County High School Girls Soccer Team is looking to put a winless 2015 season behind them and start new. This season, the Lady Knights have a new head coach, Daniel Johnson, who was hired to take over for Derek Cissell earlier this month.
    "I wasn't the coach last season, but even though they didn’t win any games, they were competitive and had a shot to win in the district tournament," Johnson said.
    The Lady Knights will have 25 players this season, including three seniors: Taylor Simpson, Holly Hutchins and Hannah Peterson.

    Give Drew Barker credit for understanding that many University of Kentucky fans really do not yet know him -- and he wants to keep working to change that.
    "I know I have had some setbacks before but I would not label that as who I am as a person. I am definitely nice and polite. Sometimes people get the wrong picture of someone and you can't tell that is really not right if you don't know them," said the Kentucky sophomore quarterback.

    Lady Knights Head Volleyball Coach David Hibbard said last season was a huge disappointment for his team in several ways.

    The Lady Knights finished last season with a 14-21-1 and fell in the Fifth Region Tournament after advancing as runner-ups of the 20th District Tournament.

  • Tee Time: Remembering how it all...

    It was Christmas of 1966 when I looked under the tree and saw my first set of golf clubs.
    Back in those days, a child’s first set included a driver, 3 wood, 3-5-7 and 9 irons and a putter. Down the road, if you were lucky, you got to fill in the 4-6 and 8 irons. The lucky guys had a wedge in their bag. We didn’t know what a sand wedge was.
