  • Back to state

    Spring sports seasons are winding down at Marion County High School as some teams are preparing for the end of the regular season while other teams have already began postseason competition. The tennis and track teams have already completed regional competition and both sports had some athletes qualify for state level competition.

  • Lady Knights win two, lose one...

    The Marion County Lady Knights softball team played three games last week. The team’s record now stands at 19-8 going into the final week of regular season play.
    “A very disappointing week of softball,” Head Coach Todd Spalding said. “In order for us to have a realistic chance of advancing deep into the postseason some things have to change and change fast. We have entirely too much moping, pouting and self-pity among some. We still have time to get this right but with one week left in the regular season that time is running short.”

  • Four athletes qualify for state...

    The Marion County track team hosted the regional track meet at Bardstown High School Thursday.
    Overall, the girls’ team finished in 11th place with 13 total points and the boys’ team finished in fifth place with 45 points.
    The top two finishers in each event automatically qualified for the state meet and then the next 10 finishers in an event from across the state advance to the state meet with an at-large bid.

  • Turkeys stay safe, away from...

    O.K. Score: Turkeys = several, me = zero. Oh, I saw birds, plenty of birds. But, they were either very young (small Jakes) or they hung up on me.
    Course the Jakes got to looking better the closer to season’s end it got. They also got wiser and the last week of the season even they started to hang up!
