  • Divine vaults to new school...

    The track teams were scheduled to go to Henry Clay to compete in the Heart of the Bluegrass meet Saturday, April 21. However, with prom scheduled for the same night, the team decided not to go.
    Brooks Divine did attend the meet, and intended on breaking some school and personal records. The previous school pole vault record was 13' 2", and Divine was able to clear an impressive 14' 2" to set a new mark.

  • Baseball Knights split district...

    The Marion County Knights baseball team competed against two district teams in Campbellsville and Taylor County last week.

  • Record-setting feat just Divine

    This week, I am going to use my column as a shout out to a Marion County High School athlete, one who participates in track and field. This athlete is a junior who has high expectations for himself as he competes in several events at each track meet. This athlete also wants to go to college and become a decathlete at whichever school he decides to attend in track and field. This athlete is Brooks Divine.

  • Outdoor options abound in Marion...

    A while back I told you about a couple of stat, KDFWR, projects in Marion County. This would be the boat ramp currently going in at the St. Joe Bridge and the “rumored” ramp at the bridge on Highway 55, Campbellsville Highway.
    These projects, when completed, will “open up” a large section of the Rolling Fork River. Then, our secret will be out: We have some of the best river fishing KY has to offer!
