  • Shake on it

    Earlier this year, the KHSAA made the decision to ban postgame handshakes following all sporting events. The rationale was that the handshake was an invitation for the teams to fight, or otherwise cause a scuffle. 

    Following a backlash from media, fans, parents, and students, as well as a blatant disregard for the directive by coaches, the KHSAA retracted their statement, saying that the initial press release was “poorly worded.” 

  • Two Lady Knights named to all-...

    Every year, the Kentucky Volleyball Coaches Association analyzes, ranks, and recognizes the achievements of volleyball players across the state. 

    From there, the players are then separated by division and placed into categories of first-team, second-team, and honorable mention. Of the hundreds of girls ranked year, a total of only 27 made First-Team All-state.

    Two Marion County Lady Knights made the cut.

    In a game that Coach Jeff Robbins watched from the press box, the Marion County Knights fell behind by two scores early and never managed to regain the lost momentum as they fell to the Russell County Lakers, 51-14.

  • Almost Knight time

    After an 11-17 record last year, the Marion County Knights are preparing to come back into a fresh season with their coach, Montrelle Irvin.
    “We have big expectations,” Irvin said about the season.
    Their expectations are high because they have a senior-loaded team.
    According to Irvin, the Knights have eight seniors, most with experience under their belt. They are Anton Cowherd, Latrelle Irvin, Bobby Jaglowicz, Brandon Knopp, Clay Lanham, Anthony Mattingly, Jalen Powell, Luke Price, and Alex Smith.

  • Lady Knights rebounding after...

    After a blazing hot 39-0 season, the Marion County Lady Knights will start the 2013-2014 season the same way they did last year - by playing against the George Rogers Clark Lady Cardinals.
    While this may seem like a familiar start, there have been some major changes for the Lady Knights.
    Former Lady Knights Coach Trent Milby accepted a coaching position at Berea College. After his departure, former boys basketball coach Anthony Epps was named as the Lady Knights new head coach in September.

  • Clearing corn could bring deer...

    The first weekend of deer season, big guns, and the weather was great. So great in fact that most farmers were getting their beans and corn in. Of course the deer are used to farm equipment and just sorta “move over a little” when it comes by.
    Fact is that when they first harvest corn the deer sorta “stand around” like they’re disoriented. It’s like they’re saying “what happened to my house, it was here yesterday?”
    It’s a great hunting opportunity, but only for a few days.
