  • GR8NESS

    Okay, so I know you see by the title of this column that I am going to write about the Kentucky Wildcats. Yes, it will be the last time I write about them, at least until next basketball season.
    Last Monday night was a wonderful night for all fans of the Kentucky Wildcats.  The Cats brought home a national championship to Lexington, the eighth championship in school history, and the first one since 1998, the year I graduated high school.

  • Hagan resigns as girls soccer...

    Hart Hagan, Marion County High School Lady Knights head girls' soccer coach, resigned recently.
    At the most recent Marion County Board of Education meeting, the board accepted Hagan's resignation effective March 16.

  • March Madness Against Domestic...

    The Caring Place in Lebanon is sponsoring the March Madness Against Domestic Violence Basketball Tournament, a co-ed tournament for interested elementary school students. It has been rescheduled for April 14-15, and the play times and schedule are still the same.
    The tournament will be offered to elementary schools (grades 4-5) in Marion, Nelson, Taylor and Washington counties.
    There will also be a silent auction that will be on display the duration of the tournament.

  • Pitchin' and flippin'...

    Well, what was originally forecast to be a miserable weather weekend turned out to be glorious.
    The fact that it was youth weekend for wild turkey, and they were gobbling their heads off, only made it better!
    While some hens have already laid eggs and are setting their nests, doesn't mean the hunting is on a downhill slide. We'll find plenty of gobblers still strutting for our adult season, which starts Saturday!

  • Soccer player/parent meeting is...

    A meeting for Marion County High School boys and girls soccer players and their parents has been scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Monday, April 16, in the high school library.
    Players must bring a parent to the meeting if they plan on playing soccer in the fall.
    The meeting will cover summer soccer camps, training start dates, physicals, equipment needs and expectations.
    For more information, contact Greg Conley at (270) 692-3155 or greg.conley@marion.kyschools.us.
     

  • Lady Knights hold teams scoreless

    The Marion County Lady Knights varsity softball team played in two games during the Spring Break week, one at home against Casey County and one game on the road against LaRue County, winning both of those to take their overall record to 7-2.  
    "I think our kids are improving and I think we have the potential to get much better," Head Coach Todd Spalding said. "We begin district play this week with Adair and Taylor so it is a big week for us. Both are good teams but we are just as good in my opinion if we play to our capabilities."

  • Track teams struggle


    The Marion County Knights and Lady Knights headed to Cecilia to take part in the 2012 Central Hardin Invitational Saturday, March 31. Both teams struggled in nearly every event, and no individual or relay team finished higher than fifth place. Overall, the girls' team accumulated just 8.5 team points while the boys' team managed only 11 points at the meet.  
    Individual results for the girls' team are as follows:
