  • My point of view

    While writing game reports and stories about the variety of sporting events we cover, I am supposed to remain objective and report on facts alone. At times that can be difficult. When I am at games and I feel that our team or a member of our team has been on the receiving end of anything that I don't think is right, I am upset. At least I am upset on the inside, but on the outside I try my best to keep my emotions to myself.

  • Football Knights fall to...

    The Marion County High School football team headed to Somerset to take on Southwestern Friday. After a hard fought, close game throughout, the Knights were defeated by a touchdown pass by the Warriors with less than a minute remaining.
    "The kids played hard with a great effort throughout the whole game," Head Coach Jeff Robbins said. "The intensity was much better throughout and it was our best defensive effort of the year."

  • Knights golf has good week

    The Marion County High School golf team played two matches last week. One match was against Mercer County and the other match was against Nelson County and Green County.
    In the match against Mercer County the Knights came out on top 180 to 199.  Individual scores for the Knights were Logan Medley and Mason Gadberry each with a 44, Evan Dye with a 45, and Casey Lee with a 47.
    "It wasn't pretty golf on either side," Head Coach Chad Spalding said. "Mason had a good round, just had one bad hole."

  • Raikes wins Lebanon Invitational...

    The Lebanon Country Club hosted the 54th Lebanon Invitational Tournament Sept. 1-3. The players were divided into 15 flights, including a championship flight.  

  • Perfect weather kicks off...

    The last couple of weekends have been the perfect kickoff to hunting seasons. This was courtesy of the first dove season, which opened Sept. 1. Couldn't write about it before due to my last early deadline!
    I attended the Peterson shoot on opening day. Course there were numerous shoots, mostly by invitation only! But, the invitation process was a pretty loose deal. You hear about a shoot from somebody who was "invited" maybe twice removed. Then they'd say "come on out," so thus you were invited!

  • Soccer Knights split four games

    The Marion County High School boys soccer team played four games last week and managed to split those four contests. The first win came against Campbellsville Wednesday before the team headed to Nelson County to take part in the Nelson County Invitational. The team dropped their first two games in the Invitational; one to Nelson County and one to Kentucky Country Day. The Knights finished off the Invitational with a win over Rowan County.

  • Lady Knights fall to top 15...

    The Marion County High School Lady Knights soccer team traveled to Boyle County to take on the Lady Rebels Tuesday of last week. Boyle County is ranked in the top 15 in the state according to Head Coach Devin Johnson, and it showed in the game. The Lady Knights fell in the game 10-0.
    "The score was definitely not as bad as it may appear," Head Coach Devin Johnson said. "We entered the game with a very defensive mindset, just trying to keep them out of our goal. And for the first 35 minutes we did a tremendous job of doing just that."
