    Marion County High School point guard Makayla Epps recently was voted as the 2013 Associated Press Kentucky girls basketball player of the year.  
    She said that she set team goals as her main focus this past season, and all the individual goals added to it.  
    Joining Epps on the first team is teammate Kyvin Goodin-Rogers, both of whom are Kentucky signees.  
    Other members of the first team include Rebecca Greenwell, China Dow, and Larryn Brooks.   The girls’ coach of the year honor went to Nicole Levandusky from Notre Dame.

  • Track teams close strong

    The Marion County track team competed in their final two meets of the regular season as they gear up for regional competition, which begins tomorrow.  
    The Knights won their final home meet of the season with 149.5 points, while the Lady Knights finished third with 76 points.
    “We got some kids some experience in events they haven’t been competing in,” assistant coach Daniel Johnson said.  “I thought everyone did a great job of going out and competing despite it being our third meet in six days.”

  • Fishing slob gets organized

    Big derby weekend coming up. For a lot of us this means “Derby parties.” Whether you have a horse to bet on, or just taking an opportunity to hang with some friends, please be safe!
    Along with the parties will be some alcohol consumption by many. I don’t pass judgment, as long as you’re of age. So, all I’ve got to say is if you drink don’t ruin a great time by driving!
    The turkey hunting has been on my back burner for the last week. Meetings, doctor visits and the weather sure cut into my hunting.
