  • Football ban? Not so fast

    The game of football has been around for a long time. There are even reports that early settlers at Jamestown, Va., played a game similar to football with inflated balls in the early 17th century. Now, in the several hundred years since that time, the game has changed in nearly every way. The rules are different, the equipment is different, and the players are different. In its early days, football used to be a very violent sport with some games being stopped because of varieties of very serious injuries.

  • Harriers prepare for regionals

    The Marion County cross country team traveled to the Kentucky Horse Park in Georgetown Saturday to take part in the Lexington Catholic cross country invitational.  
    “It was a great day for racing and we were able to compete against some of the top teams in Kentucky at the state meet course,” Marion County Coach Daniel Johnson said.  “I was glad our kids got to see that kind of environment. I knew it was the biggest race our kids have seen since they’ve been running, but we responded well.”

  • Knights fall to Lexington...

    The Marion County High School Knights struggled in nearly all phases of the game in a 55-6 loss to host Lexington Catholic Friday night. However, the touchdown that Marion County scored in the third period snapped a streak of 11 consecutive quarters of scoreless football.

  • Lady Knights bow out early in...

    Last Wednesday, the Marion County High School Lady Knights soccer team was hoping to ride the momentum of their first ever district championship win into the regional tournament.
    Instead, the team lost to the Bardstown Lady Tigers, 11-1, in the first round of the regional tournament Oct. 17 at Central Hardin High School.
    After drawing a first round bye, the Lady Knights played their first game in the semifinals of the tournament.  Marion County junior Colleen Rakes sat out the game with a concussion.  

  • Perfect weather marks start of...

    I feel sorry for those who missed ... for whatever reason ... this past weekend’s early muzzleloader season!
    The weather was about perfect and the deer sign was everywhere. A few days earlier we ... Brian Walls and I ... had found a scrape/rub line that was textbook perfect.
    Eight scrapes, with licking branches, were in a line across a ridge and it looked like someone had taken a weedeater to the brush and trees.
    It was a classic setup, classic!
