Today's Sports

  • 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.

  • Golf team places fifth in home...

    Marion County High  School hosted the Marion County Invitational at Rosewood Golf Club Saturday. Overall, 17 teams competed in the event, and Marion County was able to take fifth place.
    "I'm pleased with us finishing fifth out of 17 teams, but was hoping for a better score," Coach Chad Spalding said. "The course played tough with the wind on Saturday. Logan Medley had a solid round, and so did Trevor Burchell."

  • Saturday is Ham Days Kids Day at...

    Before I get too far into my article I just want to thank Jason Spalding. Ya see, we weren't going to have the Ham Days Kids Day this year due to lack of funding.
    But Jason contacted Independent Stave and because of a very generous sponsorship from them, and a check from our Lebanon/Marion County Kiwanis Club, Saturday is back on.
    So when ya come out Saturday, find Jason and thank him for all he did!
    Here's the plan: Saturday, Sept. 22, we'll meet at our Sportsman Lake. We'll start at 9 a.m. and go until 2 p.m., or there about!

  • Boys soccer team picks up three...

    The Marion County Knights played three games and were victorious in each of those contests last week. On Tuesday of last week, the Knights picked up a big win over Danville, and wins over Bardstown and Elizabethtown on Thursday and Saturday, respectively.
    In the Danville game, the Knights scored just one goal, but that was enough.
