  • Marion County takes fourth at...

    Last week was a mixed bag of results for the Marion County track team. 

    Through brief bouts of cool wind and cold rain, the team emerged with top marks from the Danville All-Comers Meet on April 8.

    Unfortunately, results were not as upbeat in the Central Hardin Invitational on April 11, though several girls performed very well. 

    Marion County placed 12th in the Central Hardin Invitational, and fourth in the Danville All-Comers. 

  • Marion County softball wins two

    After a stunning win against the Danville Lady Admirals, the Marion County Lady Knights went on to fall in two games in the Jaguar Classic. 

    The defeats dropped the Lady Knights’ record to 5-4 when they lost to the Ryle Lady Raiders, 6-3, and the Madison Southern Lady Eagles, 4-2, on April 12.

  • Still time to get a turkey this...

     Guess I can brag on my grandson a little. Troy’s son, 6-year-old Silas, took a mature bird during Sunday of the youth season.

    He took his mature gobbler at 25 yards and it scored 64.5, 22 pounds, 10-inch beard, 1 1/8-inch spurs.

    Course Miller, Toby’s son who’s 15, took a gobbler and a coyote while hunting Saturday.

    Don’t know who was more excited, my kids or their kids!

  • What a riot!

     I could take this time to complain about a lot of things. I have not had the best few weeks of my life, and it seems like nothing has gone right. My car broke down, for good, I made a few errors last week, I have been broke and just plain crabby. 

    But, my problems are miniscule compared to the real problems going on in the world right now.

  • Only human

     Last week, I made a huge mistake. 

    And by huge, I am not exaggerating. 

    I misread an email sent to me by Marion County High School Track Coach Daniel Johnson.

    His email was a response to some questions I was asking about their last track meet. 

  • Lady Knights defeat Titans

    The Marion County Lady Knights landed right-side-up with a win and a loss last week. The Lady Knights defeated the Mercer County Titans and lost to the Bethlehem Banshees. 

    On Tuesday, the Lady Knights (4-2) were scheduled to face the North Hardin Trojans (1-8) after press time.

  • Knights top Maroons

     Prior to shoving off for Spring Break, the Knights hosted and defeated the Pulaski County Maroons (2-7) on April 1. 

    The win was everything but an April Fools’ joke as the Knights defeated the Maroons, 7-3, to improve to 4-2 on the season.

    “I’ll take it, I’ll always take wins,” Knights Coach Patrick Campbell said.

  • A girl for all seasons

    Whether she’s kicking a ball, playing the net, or leaping and running, Miranda Bradshaw, a 17-year old senior at Marion County High School, knows few, if any boundaries at all. 

    During her time at MCHS, Bradshaw has tried her hand at almost every sport the school has to offer for girls. While she has no true favorite athletic activity, Bradshaw has participated in soccer, basketball, tennis, and track.
