  • A tale from froggin’

    Got a call telling me that I had an early deadline this week. This usually cases quite a predicament in that there’s nothing much happening in the four days since I turned in my last article.
    This time the pain of a short notification was lessened due to a recent froggin’ trip.
    It started at dark, which seemed to take awhile. I was at a pond owned by a friend with my light and gig.
    As it got dark the frogs started croakin’ so loud it was almost eerie. Of course I wasn’t scared, maybe a little nervous, but not scared.

  • Spalding stepping down as Marion...

    Recently, Marion County High School Head baseball coach Chad Spalding submitted his resignation from coaching baseball effective June 30, 2013.  Spalding will remain the head coach of the golf team.  In a letter of resignation submitted to the Enterprise, Spalding stated that he felt his 17 years as coach of the baseball Knights were successful and that some of the moments he experienced while coaching are some of the most memorable in his lifetime.
    Spalding’s full letter reads:

  • Knights fall in district opener

    The Marion County Knights baseball team competed in the 20th District Tournament last week in Adair County. The team was scheduled to play on May 21, but due to rain on Tuesday and Wednesday, the first round game for Marion County was held Thursday night. The Knights played the Taylor County Cardinals in Adair County at the Lindsey Wilson College baseball field. Marion County could not produce enough runs in the game, however, and fell to Taylor County 8-5 in eight innings of play, spoiling their chance to advance to the 5th Region Tournament.

  • Another pole vault state champ

    Last Saturday, the middle school members of the Marion County track team headed to the University of Louisville to compete in the 2013 KTCCCA Middle School State Championship track meet.  Overall, five athletes from Marion County competed in the meet. Laurel Brahm, Ty Divine, Dalton Riggs, Talena Brown, and Dylan Bradshaw each competed in their respective events.
    Bradshaw was the highlight of the meet for Marion County. Just like his mentor, Brooks Divine, did last week, Bradshaw captured the state title in pole vault.

  • Postseason on the diamond

    Well, as you are reading this column, the 5th Region softball tournament is already underway. The Marion County Lady Knights were scheduled to play on Monday in the tournament, but as I am typing this, due to an early deadline, I do not know their opponent or time of the game yet. However, I do know the tournament will be held in Nelson County.
