  • SOFTBALL: Lady Knights prepare...

    After a scrimmage at Garrard County Monday evening, the Marion County Lady Knights will kick off the regular season at 6 p.m., tomorrow, at home against the Thomas Nelson Generals. The Lady Knights will be seeking to defend their district title as they come off a 25-8 campaign last season that included a 5-0 win against the Taylor County Lady Cardinals to clinch the district championship. Marion County, however, was blown out in the Fifth Region Tournament, 11-1, by the Hart County Lady Raiders.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights'...

    The Knights haven’t been able to find a winning formula against the Taylor County Cardinals this season, and it cost them dearly this time. 
    Taylor County shot 57.6 percent from the field and TreVon Smith scored 17 of his game-high 35 points in the first half as the Cardinals coasted to a 95-73 win Thursday evening in the 20th District Tournament. It was Marion County’s third loss to Taylor County, and ended the Knights’ season. 

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Epps leaving...

    Makayla Epps has been around the sport of basketball her entire life. It's taken her on quite the journey. She helped the Marion County Lady Knights win the state championship in 2013, and she's become the face of University of Kentucky women's basketball.
    She's loved every moment of it.
    "I thank God and my coaches that have pushed me to become a better player,” Epps said. “I've always had a love of basketball. The fans make it fun. The good players, competition make it fun. So many different things make it fun."
