  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights face...

    Six games remain for the Marion County Knights after Monday's game at North Hardin, and the Knights aren't overlooking any as the season winds down. The Knights are set to kick off their final district game at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 3, taking on the Cardinals at Taylor County. The Cardinals handed Marion County a 64-53 loss on Jan. 20 when these two teams met in the Roby Dome.
    "They're a good team," Knights Head Coach Montrelle Irvin said. "It's just a high intensity game. You know, either you bring it or you get beat."

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Final district...

    The Lady Knights are on the verge of doing something not done since the days of the 2012-13 state championship team.
    With a win against the Lady Cardinals on Feb. 3 at Taylor County, Marion County will finish undefeated in district play. But, it won't be easy to get the win, according to Lady Knights Head Coach Kenny Mills.
    "They're going to be ready," he said. "It's going to be a tough game over there in that environment, and we already know that going in. We're going to go over and try to play hard and play our good defense."

    Forget being merely impressive. Andy O'Daniel wanted to be record breaking.

    "We performed well in this meet," Head Coach Katie Johnson said. "We were competing against bigger times at this meet, Going up against bigger teams is difficult, but we're small and mighty. We're a solid team this season."

  • Vaught’s Views: ‘Billy Shirt...

    By Larry Vaught

    It’s hard to find anyone who analyzes University of Kentucky football recruiting more than Freddie Maggard.
    The former UK quarterback and current Kentucky Sports Radio football analyst pours over game film of potential recruits to arrive at his own recruiting opinions that have nothing to do with the star rankings assigned by recruiting analysts.
    As Kentucky coach Mark Stoops put together his 2017 class, Maggard liked it more and more.

  • Indians blitz past Knights

    The Knights had high hopes of taking control of the top seed in the 20th district. All they needed was a win against the Adair County Indians.
    The Indians thoroughly and decisively dashed those hopes little by little, basket by basket.
    Corey Melton drained five three-pointers on his way to a game-high 27 points and Kell Stotts scored 18 of his 20 points in the first half as the Fifth-Region leading Indians (20-1, 4-0) overwhelmed the Knights (10-9, 2-3) 76-53, Jan. 17, at the Roby Dome.

  • The love of it

    A study conducted by Gallup across 140 countries in 2011 and 2012 found that only 13 percent of people are "actively engaged" in their jobs. In contrast, 63 percent of respondents said they were "not engaged" in their jobs. However, the way people describe their views of their work gets worse in the survey. Perhaps most concerning is that 24 percent of those surveyed reported they were "actively disengaged" in their jobs.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    The Lady Knights built a 22-point lead going into halftime against the Central Hardin Lady Bruins on Jan. 16.
    But, they nearly let it slip away.
    Haeli Howard had 31 points while Elise Carpenter and Katie Mattingly each had 11 as Marion County hung on for their third straight win against the Central Hardin Lady Bruins 67-59, and survived a sluggish third quarter where Marion County was outscored 21-8.
