Today's Sports

  • Lady Knights and coach selected...

    Makayla Epps and Kyvin Goodin-Rogers have been selected to play in the Ohio-Kentucky Girls Basketball All-Star game.
    Anthony Epps was selected to play in the boys All-Star game in 1993. The game will be played on Saturday, April 13, at Thomas More College in Crestview Hills. Crestview Hills is located about 12 miles south of Cincinnati, Ohio.
    Lady Knight Head Coach Trent Milby has also been selected to lead the Kentucky squad.

  • Countdown to 3,000: Epps needs...

    After the win over Mercy Saturday in which Makayla Epps had 22 points, she now has 2,949 career points.  
    She needs 51 total points to reach 3,000 career points, joining only 20 other girls’ basketball players in Kentucky since 1975.
    Rebecca Greenwell surpassed 3,000 career points on Jan. 17, which will now make Epps the 20th member of the 3,000-point club.
    She currently is averaging 22.3 points per game.
    She will most likely surpass 3,000 points in the Raatz Fence Classic in Louisville this weekend.

  • Hunting seasons we have left

    Every once in a while something happens which points out that not everybody understands what I write. I’m pretty sure that happens when I just take for granted that everyone hunts and/or fishes!
    Case in point: I recently wrote about duck hunting and the use of a blind. Well, I got a call from a lady, who is an accomplished angler, asking what a “blind” was. Kinda caught me flat footed and brought home the notion that I should maybe explain myself a little better when I write.

  • Aquaknights keep breaking school...
  • Knights win OT thriller

    The Marion County High School boys travelled to Campbellsville for a 20th district game Friday. In a game in which neither  team ever led by more than seven points, the teams ended regulation deadlocked, 50-50. In overtime, the Knights managed two more points than the Eagles to win 56-54 and improve to 8-8 on the season.
    The opening quarter would set the tone for the entire game. Neither team led by more than two points, and a pair of free throws by Jalen Powell left the score tied 11 to end the quarter.

  • The other side of sports

    As a fan of sports, I find myself scouring the Internet looking at reports and stories about sports I am not familiar with. While doing this lately, I ran across a story that caught my attention. I am almost embarrassed to admit that I was unaware of this, but I was until I did a little investigating.
