  • Are more helmets needed?

     I usually start these things off with “What a week!” or some corny thing like that, but I won’t this time. Nope, things this week are a bit serious, in fact.

    The Knights baseball opened its season March 19 by defeating the Washington County Commanders, 4-3, at Idle Park in Springfield. 

  • First tourney not bad, but cold

    Sunday, March 23, was the first tournament for the Mid-KY Bass Anglers 2014 season.

    The turnout was good with 10 boats and 19 anglers. One guy fishing by himself gave us the odd number of anglers.

    Not bad for a tournament held on a frigid March day! It was bitter cold, but it neither rained nor snowed, so we didn’t complain “too” much.

  • Lady Knights top Boyle, Mercer...

    After starting their season with a win over the Mercer County Titans (1-2), the Marion County Lady Knights fell to the Green County Dragons (2-0) in an 8-7 game with two extra innings on March 18.

    But the team would not let the loss drag them down. 

    They bounced back to defeat the visiting Boyle County Lady Rebels in an extra inning on March 20. 

  • Knights win two in season’s...

    The Marion County Knights roared into the season landing 2-1 after their first week of play against the Washington County Commanders, the John Hardin Bulldogs, and the North Hardin Trojans. 

    Fighting a lingering winter wind, the Knights opened up their season with a win against the Commanders (1-2) on March 19. 

    “My nerves were shot,” Knights Coach Patrick Campbell said after the game. “…it’s a good way to get season started.” 

  • Track teams open at Green County

    The Marion County track team opened its season last week at the Green County All-comers Meet. 

    The girls placed in eight categories and the boys placed in 10. A complete list of results can be found at http://ky.milesplit.com/

    The girls won the 4x100 meter relay in 56.54 seconds at Green County, and Rae Mills won the 800 meters in 2:43. 

    On the boys’ side, Justin Dawson took second in both the 100 and 200 meters and the pole vault.

  • Tennis teams defeat Washington...

    With weather cooperating, the Marion County Knights and Lady Knights competed against the Taylor County Cardinals and Lady Cardinals on March 18 at Graham Memorial Park. Marion County got off to a rocky start when they lost all six doubles matches against their opponent.

    Coach Landon Williams wrote in an email after the matches that Taylor County had returned some tough players from last year.

  • Campbellsville University...

     Campbellsville University is hosting a 4-on-4 volleyball tournament at 10 a.m. April 5 at the Powell Athletic Center on campus.

    The tournament will follow either a double-elimination or round robin format depending how many teams register.

  • Lady Knights season another ‘...

    In like lambs and out like lions, the Marion County Lady Knights ended their season after making an appearance in the 5th Region Tournament. After advancing in the first round by defeating the Bethlehem Banshees (10-13), 54-43, they fell to the LaRue County Lady Hawks (24-7), 65-54, in the semifinals.

    Lady Knights Coach Anthony Epps said overall it was a good season.

    “It was a successful season considering all the youth and inexperience we had,” Epps said in an email.
