  • So close, yet so far

    The Marion County Lady Knights varsity basketball team played for a state title Saturday evening, an accomplishment that no other girls' team has been able to reach. Last year's team had advanced the farthest up to this point, making it to the final four. With a tough battle sure to follow, the Lady Knights knew they had to be up to a serious challenge. After a 32-minute, knock-down, drag-out battle, the Lady Knights came up just a bit short, and fell to Manual by a final score of 58-54.

  • What a ride

    As I am typing this column, I am totally worn out.
    I have spent this past weekend in Bowling Green with my husband Josh, my daughter, Karli, my mom, and my uncle, along with many other Marion County fans, watching the Lady Knights basketball team as they made history once again.
