    After a season of ups and downs, the Marion County Knights and Lady Knights both advanced beyond the district tournament.

    Unfortunately, the Knights (16-7) lost the Nelson County Cardinals (10-5-1) on Monday, 2-0, in the first round the Firth Region tournament at North Hardin high school. 

  • Knights win district soccer title

    The Marion County Knights won the 18th District soccer championship Thursday night.

    The Knights defeated the Taylor County Cardinals, 5-1, in a match at Marion County High School to claim the title.

  • Football fan & female

    As a college football fan, I welcome the mini-playoff that will be used to decide the champion at the end of the 2014 season.

    Better yet, once the television networks realize how much money they can make, I fully expect the powers-that-be in college football to expand the playoff to include more teams. 

    A selection committee -- similar to the ones that pick the teams for the NCAA basketball tournaments -- will pick the four teams that will be included in the 2014 mini-playoff.

  • Good deed, good game

    The Marion County Knights and Lady Knights did battle in order to raise awareness for breast cancer during a double header on Oct. 8. The lines were painted dark pink in honor of the occasion, and door prizes were given to the women in the audience. 

    “It felt great and we did a great job of painting the field up and lighting the lanterns and getting everyone involved,” Knights Coach Greg Conley said. 

  • Busy week means wins for Lady...

    Senior night was a good night for the Marion County Lady Knights.

    Marion County (23-10) swept the Adair County Lady Indians (7-13), 25-22, 25-14, 25-19, but that’s not all they accomplished with the win.

    “We finished undefeated in the district. That’s always a good thing,” Lady Knights Coach David Hibbard said.

    Marion County was 6-0 against district opponents this season. 

  • KHSAA: Be careful when shaking...

    Kentucky High School Athletic Association Commissioner Julian Tackett issued a directive last week discouraging post-game handshakes. Since its release, the directive has come under heavy scrutiny and has in some cases, been misunderstood. 

    Some people took it so far as to say that handshakes were banned when the directive was issued. 

    According to KHSAA spokesperson Marilyn Mitchell, however, handshakes are not prohibited.

  • Bucks vs Does, which one would...

    My young friend Preston Spalding, son of Jason and Beth Spalding, took a nice doe during our recent Youth Season.

    After a lot of practice, and as all of us know, a little luck, Preston put the smack down on his deer.

    Congratulations go out to Preston and anybody else who took a deer during the Youth Season!
