  • Into the postseason

    Well, as I am writing this, one of the winter sports, swimming, has already headed into postseason and actually completed postseason play. The Aquaknights swim team competed in the 3rd Region swim meet last weekend in Jamestown, where a pair of swimmers, Laura Rice and Lindsey Buckman, once again broke their own school records.

  • Swim team wraps up season at...

    The Marion County Aquaknights competed in the region three swim meet held in Russell County recently. As a team, the girls finished in 13th place overall with 44 points and the boys finished in 17th place with 36 total points.
    “We took 22 swimmers to region this year, compared to 12 last year,” Head Coach Holly Buckman said.
    Buckman also noted that several swimmers and relay teams broke records or trimmed some time off of their previous bests on the season.

  • Fourth quarter dooms Knights

    The Marion County High School Knights basketball team traveled to Radcliff Friday to take on North Hardin. The Knights managed to stay in the game throughout the first three quarters, but their offense stalled in the fourth quarter as the Trojans went on to win the game by a final score of 88-60. Alex Smith led the way for the Knights with 24 points.
    Four minutes into the game, the Knights found themselves in a 15-4 hole. Marion County battled back, and was sparked by a four-point play by Alex Smith to trim the deficit to 23-17 as the quarter ended.

    The Lady Knights headed to East Hardin Middle School to tangle with the third ranked Henderson County Lady Colonels in the Duke’s Sporting Goods Valentine’s Day Shootout Saturday.

    The win marks the 29th in a row by the Lady Knights. The 29 wins now have surpassed the previous mark of 28 consecutive wins set in the 1979-1980 season.

  • Groundhog predicts an early...

    Saturday was about as exciting as it gets. Granted, it was cold and windy, with a little snow in the mix. But, I was determined not to miss it. It’s been in the planning stages for almost a year and now it was going to happen.
    So I layered up and headed out to an area I’d had my eye on for a while. The signs were all good that my quarry used this area so that only left relying on my stalking abilities to get the job done.

  • Will it happen?
