Today's Sports

  • Squirrel, frog seasons are...

    In my last article I mentioned that we were sort of “between” gunning seasons. So, I suggested you try coyote hunting to ease the pain of not shooting!
    Since the article came out I was reminded of a couple of other opportunities to hunt!
    First, we have an early squirrel season we can take advantage of. It runs from May 18 until June 21 with a daily limit of six and possession limit of 12.

  • The big decision

    Recently, a major decision in college basketball came down when the number one rated high school basketball player in the country made his college decision.  Andrew Wiggins from Huntington Prep picked the Kansas Jayhawks as his college team.  For weeks, many thought he would choose Kentucky and join the number one recruiting class in the nation.  If Wiggins had picked Kentucky, Coach John Calipari would have secured the number one player from each position in the ratings.

  • Knights outlast Bardstown,...

    The Marion County Knights baseball team finished up their regular season winning two of their four games last week.
    The Knights lost to Bethlehem and Russell County on the road before defeating Nelson County at home and beating Bardstown on the road. The Knights closed the regular season with an 18-12 record.  
    Marion County was scheduled to play Taylor County in the opening round of district play last night. If they won, will play the winner of Adair County/Campbellsville tonight in Adair County.

  • Lady Knights win three of four...

    The Marion County Lady Knights softball won three of their final four regular season contests, leaving their record at 22-9 going into district play.
    Marion County defeated Campbellsville, 14-2, on Monday in the first round of the district tournament. They were scheduled to play Taylor County last night for the championship of the 20th District Tournament.

  • Top players take out tennis...

    Three members of the Marion County tennis teams competed in the state tournament last Thursday.
    Sophomore Alex Spalding, who won the regional crown, competed in the state tournament at Shillito Park for the Knights, while the duo of Elyssa Holt and Madison Cassidy, who were regional semifinalists to earn their state spot, competed at the University of Kentucky Boone/Downing Tennis Center for the Lady Knights.

  • Divine Repeat

    For the second consecutive year, Marion County’s Brooks Divine claimed the KHSAA 2A state pole vaulting title.
    Divine, a senior, won this year’s event by clearing 14 feet three inches at the state meet, which was held at Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park on the University of Louisville campus. Last year, he won by clearing 13’ 6”.
    “I had a goal at the beginning of last year and that was to be a back-to-back state champion and to be able to fulfill that goal and to sign at the University of Kentucky is a dream come true!” Divine said.

  • British soccer camp returns to...

    Local soccer players will once again have the opportunity to improve their skills with Challenger Sports at their week-long “British Soccer Camp” from June 24-28. 

    The camp will be held at the Marion County soccer fields across the street from the Fairgrounds, 415 Fairgrounds Road in Lebanon.

    If you want to improve your golf game, and help support the St. Catharine College golf program at the same time, you have that opportunity again this spring. Again, St. Catharine College head coach Joan Rizer will be offering lessons at Bardstown Country Club at Maywood. All proceeds go to the Patriots men’s and women’s golf programs.
    The lessons are offered each Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Call Coach Rizer at (502) 507-4777 to set up a time for the lessons.

  • Knights baseball games cancelled

    The Marion County Knights varsity baseball team was scheduled to play five games this past week. However, due to inclement weather and poor field conditions, no games were played.
    The freshman team was able to play a game against Washington County Wednesday, May 8.
