  • Mercer County topples Lady...

    The Marion County High School Lady Knights soccer team struggled against Mercer County last week and fell 8-0, and was narrowly defeated 1-0 by North Hardin.
    On Monday of last week, the Lady Knights hosted Mercer County. The Lady Titans are ranked in the state rankings and showed why.
    "They attacked early and often," Coach Devin Johnson said. "In the end, they were really just too much for us to handle."  
    Mercer County was able to score four goals in the first half on what Johnson called "mental mistakes on our part."

  • My point of view

    While writing game reports and stories about the variety of sporting events we cover, I am supposed to remain objective and report on facts alone. At times that can be difficult. When I am at games and I feel that our team or a member of our team has been on the receiving end of anything that I don't think is right, I am upset. At least I am upset on the inside, but on the outside I try my best to keep my emotions to myself.

  • Football Knights fall to...

    The Marion County High School football team headed to Somerset to take on Southwestern Friday. After a hard fought, close game throughout, the Knights were defeated by a touchdown pass by the Warriors with less than a minute remaining.
    "The kids played hard with a great effort throughout the whole game," Head Coach Jeff Robbins said. "The intensity was much better throughout and it was our best defensive effort of the year."

  • Perfect weather kicks off...

    The last couple of weekends have been the perfect kickoff to hunting seasons. This was courtesy of the first dove season, which opened Sept. 1. Couldn't write about it before due to my last early deadline!
    I attended the Peterson shoot on opening day. Course there were numerous shoots, mostly by invitation only! But, the invitation process was a pretty loose deal. You hear about a shoot from somebody who was "invited" maybe twice removed. Then they'd say "come on out," so thus you were invited!
