    March 6, he will be inducted into the fifth region Hall of Fame.
    Marks has coached several different basketball teams throughout his tenure and was also involved in baseball and softball programs. Marks has coached more than 200 teams and more than 2,000 athletes during his career.

    Throughout the basketball seasons, I have observed some great games. That was also true this past week and weekend while attending the district basketball games held at Taylor County High School. With both the boys and girls teams having the No. 1 seed in the district standings, they were both able to play Campbellsville on Tuesday of last week, both winning their respective games and guaranteeing their trips to the 5th Region tournament.
