Today's Sports

  • Postseason push

    It may seem like a strange time of year to be talking about the postseason.  After all, it is still September. The NFL season has just begun and won't be heading into the postseason until after the turn of the New Year. College football is in the same boat, and basketball seasons haven't started yet. The closest sport preparing to head into postseason is Major League Baseball, but that is not the sport I'm talking about.

  • Cross country team starts out...

    The Marion County High School Cross Country team has competed in three meets during their season, and has four more meets scheduled before heading into postseason competition.
    "We've started the season well, and I'm pleased with the number of kids we've had out," Head Coach Daniel Johnson said.

  • Golf team edges Green County

    The Marion County High School golf team traveled to Green County on Sept. 17, to finish up regular season play. The regional competition for girls was held on Monday at Fort Knox, and the boys regional competition was held yesterday at Lincoln Homestead in Springfield.

  • Kids Day and Ham Days Open Bass...

    It was a very busy and great weekend.
    We started early with the Kids Day at Sportsman's Lake on Saturday. Then even earlier on Sunday we were up for the 7 a.m. blast, or buzz off, at Fagan Branch for the Ham Days Open Bass Tournament.
    Back to Saturday... simply put, it was awesome!
    Our Kids Day started at 9 a.m. but before that a lot of preparation had taken place. This year Jason and Beth Spalding took on the responsibility of organizing our Kids Day. This included a bunch of running to get trophies and door prizes.

  • Soccer Knights continue strong...

    The Marion County High School Knights soccer team continued to dominate its competition last week. The Knights didn't allow a goal by either of their opponents.
    Thursday, Marion County shut out Hart County, 3-0, and finished off Campbellsville on Saturday, 10-0. The Knights haven't been scored on since Sept. 8, five games ago, and now sit at 10-6 overall and 4-0 in district play.

  • Lady Knights pick up second...

    The Marion County High School Lady Knights soccer team picked up its second win on the season, and accomplished a first in program history in the process.  
    The Lady Knights soccer program started in 1999, and had played Danville nearly a dozen times. However, the Lady Knights had never come out on the winning side of any of those contests, until Wednesday when Marion County won, 4-2.

  • Lady Knights win 21st match in...

    The Marion County Lady Knights volleyball team competed in their only match of the week Tuesday of last week, taking on Elizabethtown at the Roby Dome. After dropping the first set, the Lady Knights battled back to win the match in five sets, picking up their 21st win of the season. The overall record is 21-4.

  • Good things

    In my last column, I wrote about switching teams and how I have now become a Denver Broncos fan because Peyton Manning is now wearing the navy and orange. I talked about how I love his passion for the game and how I couldn't wait to watch him play again finally since having to see Manning on the sideline all last year due to a neck injury.

  • Knights take command

    The Marion County Knights football team picked up their first win of the season over arch rival Washington County Friday evening. The game was close throughout but Marion County never trailed. The Knights pulled away in the fourth quarter, once leading 28-14, before winning the game 28-21.
