  • Year in Review: Championships,...

     Marion County had a lot to celebrate in 2013, including state titles in two team sports and an individual state track champion. Individuals received statewide and national recognition, too. 

    While not all of the news was good news, a lot of what happened last year will be remembered for years to come. Here’s a look back on the year in sports.

    1. Lady Knights win the state title

  • Holiday hoops a mixed bag

     On Dec 23, the Marion County Knights marched out of the Warren East Classic victorious when they narrowly defeated the North Oldham Mustangs, 73-68.

    Junior guard Anton Cowherd and senior guard Latrelle Irvin both had double doubles for the Knights (9-3) in the win.

    Irvin scored 22 points, including 10 free throws, and grabbed 13 rebounds, while Cowherd contributed 20 points and 11 rebounds.

    Alex Smith chipped in 10 points for Marion County.

  • Looking ahead in the NFL

    By Will Phillips

    All right, let’s talk NFL playoffs. As with every season, several teams’ fates are undecided going into Week 17. Among those are perennial playoff teams like the Packers (7-7-1), the Bears (8-7), the Eagles (9-6), and the Cowboys (8-7). There are some very interesting storylines playing out, like the story in the NFC South. 

  • More goodies from Santa for...

     Santa was good, real good! Kids got the old man a 22-250 caliber barrel for my Encore Pro Hunter. And, not just my barrel! They got a Bullberry barrel!

    Then, Santa himself got me a Wildfire II predator call. Even though Santa was suffering from “beard envy” he still came through!

    So now I have the gun and the call. Now I just have to learn to use them.

  • St. Charles sixth grade girls...

  • Give me an S-P-O-R-T!

    What makes a sport, well, a sport?

    Is it competition? Athletics?

    A combination of both?

    I caught myself asking this when I was browsing through sports news a few weeks ago. I asked the question because ESPN’s website had a section for billiards. 

    Billiards? I thought. Billiards isn’t a sport!

  • Marion County Holiday Classic is...

    The Marion County Knights will host the Marion County Holiday Classic this week.

    The games will take place on Dec. 26, 27 and 29.

    Knights Coach Montrelle Irvin said he was excited to get the classic underway, especially because it has been several years since Marion County has hosted a holiday event.
