  • Volleyball: Season of learning...

     The Marion County Lady Knights are no strangers to wins and district championships. This year, they once again took the 20th District title. 

    Unfortunately, they weren’t able to take the regional title. They were knocked of the running 3-0 by the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers on Oct. 28.

  • Linescores, Nov. 5

     St. Charles basketball

    The St. Charles Middle School eighth grade girls basketball team fought until the bitter end in Thursday night’s championship game at Bethlehem High School.

  • Volleyball: Lady Knights take...

    Moving like a freight train, the Marion County Lady Knights hosted and took the 20th district tournament for the seventh year in a row on Oct 22. They took the championship and advanced to regional play by defeating the Taylor County Lady Cardinals 3-1 and the Adair County Lady Indians 3-0. It was the Lady Knights ninth district title in 15 years.

    “It feels pretty good,” Lady Knights Coach David Hibbard said after the win. “I’ll take that.” 

  • Bow your head and pray

    It’s time to bow your head and pray. 

    I’m no stranger to hearing prayers on the playing fields. Whether it’s turf under their feet or wood under their sneakers, when it comes to district or region play, more often than not, I’ll hear a prayer said by one or even both teams. 

  • Soccer: Knights gain valuable...

    After a long fall season, the Marion County Knights’ year came to an end when they fell 3-2 to the LaRue County Hawks in the first round of the 18th District tournament.

  • Soccer: Lady Knights are looking...

     The Lady Knights’ season left a sour taste in their mouths. After finishing 1-18, the Marion County Lady Knights’ season came to a close after an 8-0 loss to the Taylor County Lady Cardinals (14-3-1) in the first round of the 18th District tournament. 

    Despite the rough ending, Lady Knights Coach Derek  Cissell was optimistic.

  • Holding Court

    On Oct. 22, Katie George, the University of Louisville Lady Cardinals volleyball team setter, paid a visit to St. Charles Middle School in Lebanon. George, who is the starting setter for the Lady Cardinals, talked with the children about various subjects from goal setting and self-confidence, to the importance of education. Katie George is the granddaughter to Dr. Salem George and the daughter of Tim George. 

  • Another look at deer season

    I made a mistake in last week’s article when I said modern gun season ran from Nov. 8 through Nov. 23. 

    It does in Zones 1 and 2. However, Marion County is in Zone 3, which puts our season from Nov. 8-17. That’s a 10-day season for us.
