  • Lady Knights rebounding after...

    After a blazing hot 39-0 season, the Marion County Lady Knights will start the 2013-2014 season the same way they did last year - by playing against the George Rogers Clark Lady Cardinals.
    While this may seem like a familiar start, there have been some major changes for the Lady Knights.
    Former Lady Knights Coach Trent Milby accepted a coaching position at Berea College. After his departure, former boys basketball coach Anthony Epps was named as the Lady Knights new head coach in September.

  • Clearing corn could bring deer...

    The first weekend of deer season, big guns, and the weather was great. So great in fact that most farmers were getting their beans and corn in. Of course the deer are used to farm equipment and just sorta “move over a little” when it comes by.
    Fact is that when they first harvest corn the deer sorta “stand around” like they’re disoriented. It’s like they’re saying “what happened to my house, it was here yesterday?”
    It’s a great hunting opportunity, but only for a few days.

  • Marion County team takes second...

    Marion County Youth Soccer Teams Orange and Blue (travel-recreational youth soccer teams) recently played in the Commonwealth Cup, which included teams from across Kentucky.

    According to a bracket provided by Kentucky Youth Soccer, the Blues played three games before making it to final round against the Fern Creek Thunder team. They fell in the final round, 3-0.

  • Crossing the line

    As a sports correspondent for The Lebanon Enterprise, I have had the luxury of covering soccer, football, volleyball, and occasionally golf and cross country. I have also covered youth baseball and softball. Covering these sports means I have to get close to the action. So close, in fact, that I have been hit by a few fast moving balls.

    Lately, however, I have been hit by a much different kind of fastball - rudeness.

    As Athletic Director Robbie Peterson said after the game, Marion County “played with passion,” on Friday night, jumping out to a 14-0 lead in the second quarter against rival Washington County. The Knights ran the ball often, with only three pass attempts in the first half. Even with those numbers, though, they amassed 195 yards in the first two quarters.
