    On May 14, The Captain took the field at Yankee Stadium for one final time.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Knights finish...

    Caroline Buckman hit a two-RBI single to break a scoreless tie in the seventh and Haley Mattingly came within one hit of a perfect game as Marion County finished district play with a perfect 6-0 record May 15 against the Campbellsville Lady Eagles (14-15, 2-4) in an 8-0 win.
    Buckman's hit set off an eight run seventh inning for the Lady Knights.

  • TENNIS: Spalding, Knights'...

    Bryce Spalding's run in the state tournament came to a quick end. 
    Spalding fell 6-0, 6-2 in the opening round of the boys' singles draw to Rui Pinto from Kentucky Country Day.
    "Bryce went into the match with a good mindset," Head Coach Noah Swencki said. "It was a good opportunity for him to play better players than he's used to. He knew these kids were next level players. It was a learning experience for him. He played well but he had an unlikely draw."

    By Larry Vaught

    If the American Football Coaches Association has its way, college football players would be allowed to play in four games and still be able to count that as a redshirt season.
    Most coaches already seem to be in favor of the potential change, including influential Alabama coach Nick Saban.

  • BASEBALL: Spalding, Thomas shut...

    A shutout win against a top team in the Fifth Region is a good way to rebound from two straight losses. 
    Andrew Spalding and Luke Thomas pitched their second combined shutout this season and Marion County used a four-run second inning to defeat the visiting Bethlehem Eagles 6-0 on Dave Hourigan Field. The loss was only the second game in which Bethlehem (18-10, 8-4) was held scoreless this season. The Eagles also fell 11-0 to Nelson County on April 25.
