  • The week in sports

    As I sit at my computer typing my column this week, I have a heavy heart. It's hard to think of something to write, so I chose to take a look back at last week in the sports world, coming up with two sporting events that I wanted to discuss.

  • Goodin-Rogers decommits from...

    Marion County High School senior to be Kyvin Goodin-Rogers recently decommitted from the University of Louisville. Almost exactly one year ago, Goodin-Rogers and teammate Makayla Epps verbally committed to the University of Louisville.  Now, Goodin-Rogers has rescinded her commitment, while Epps remains intent on playing for the Lady Cardinals.

  • Don't forget about Father...

    The Warrior Dash, a major outdoor event, is coming to Popes Creek Ranch in a week or so - June 23.
    Last I checked the registration was at almost 5,000 and wasn't closed yet!
    This Warrior Dash involves some intense conditioning just to compete. Then there's three or four miles of "obstacles." "Warriors" will run through the woods, stumble/wade through mud and water, climb walls, jump through fire and all kinds of other challenges.

  • Softball team receives awards

    The award for the most RBI was taken home by Ashley Walls, while Abby Miles took home the award for the most extra base hits.

  • The Voice of the Lady Knights -...

    Eugene Campbell has been the man behind the microphone at all home games for the Marion County Lady Knights basketball team since 2007.
    Campbell began by working some St. Augustine games, then started keeping book for Coach Freddie Leathers at Marion County High School. Upon Leathers' departure, Coach Trent Milby was hired and Campbell began to announce at the Lady Knights games.
    There are several reasons why Campbell has a love for this position, but most of all he does it for the kids.
