  • Marion County, Manual battle in...

    The temperature rose as the Marion County Lady Knights scrimmaged against the DuPont Manual Lady Crimsons in Elizabethtown on Saturday. 

    Though the Lady Knights would be defeated in the game, they took some major strides. 

    “Overall I’m very pleased with this scrimmage, I think we got a lot of progress going forward,” Lady Knights Coach Anthony Epps said. 

  • With cold weather, real hunting...

    It finally got cold! Now I know a lot of people aren’t just real happy about that. And to be honest about it, the older I get, the less I enjoy it!

    Age aside, cold weather signals the start of real hunting seasons. We’ve had squirrel season for a while now, as well as rabbit and quail. Even deer season wasn’t just real “normal.”

    First, as stated, the weather was too warm and second, corn and bean crops weren’t harvested yet, at least not where I hunted.

    Marion County’s football season came to a close against Russell County in the first round of the Class 4A playoffs on Nov. 8. It was a disappointing end to a season that has seen its share of difficulties, both on the field and off. 

  • That’s a bully!

    Bullying.

    No definition needed. 

    That’s because we have all been victims of it. 

    In fact, I would argue we are all a little guilty of it too, whether we realize it or not. 

    But we are not talking about the awkward middle school locker room antics from which we all survive. 

  • Reeling one in

    Fishing is an unpredictable sport. And the future of a fishing team at Marion County High School is still uncertain. 

    But it was a topic of conversation at the Marion County Board of Education meeting Nov. 12.

    Jerry Smith, a retired educator and assistant director of athletics, as well as a National Bass Federation representative, attended the meeting to present information about creating a fishing team at MCHS.

  • MCHS swim team getting ready to...

    As basketball prepares to get underway, the Marion County swim team is preparing to make a splash too and has already begun practicing. 

    Last year, two girls on the team, Lindsey Buckman and Laura Rice, broke school records in the 100 freestyle, the 100 backstroke and the 100 butterfly. 

    This year, they hope to continue improving, and that is one of the goals that Coaches Holly Buckman and John Buckman have set for the team.
