  • Volleyball: Lady Knights to be...

    Lady Knights Head Volleyball Coach David Hibbard is optimistic about the 2017 season, and he expects notable improvements from last year's 15-21 season. 
    "I am expecting big things from our team this season," he said. "My minimum expectation is a winning season and a chance to win the district championship. I also believe we can compete to win each of the three varsity tournaments in which we will play and hopefully be in a position to advance come regional tournament time."

The All-Stars secured the first-ever regional tournament win in 10-12 team history.

  • Golf team to state? Coach says...

    Could this be the year the Marion County golf team makes it back to the state tournament? 
    If you ask Head Coach Joey Reed, this could very well be the year. 
    “I have some pretty high expectations for the team,” the second-year head coach said. “Last season, the team took a big jump with the coaching change. I expect the team to have a good run this year. This could be the year Marion County is back in the state tournament.”

    Evyn Hendrickson had little time to react.

    Hendrickson was hit by a line drive that was traveling more than 70 mph during a game in April, resulting in several broken bones on her face. She was not the only softball player to experience a line drive to the face in recent memory as three other players in her region had also been hit by a line drive hit in the span of a month.
