  • Reeling one in

    Fishing is an unpredictable sport. And the future of a fishing team at Marion County High School is still uncertain. 

    But it was a topic of conversation at the Marion County Board of Education meeting Nov. 12.

    Jerry Smith, a retired educator and assistant director of athletics, as well as a National Bass Federation representative, attended the meeting to present information about creating a fishing team at MCHS.

  • MCHS swim team getting ready to...

    As basketball prepares to get underway, the Marion County swim team is preparing to make a splash too and has already begun practicing. 

    Last year, two girls on the team, Lindsey Buckman and Laura Rice, broke school records in the 100 freestyle, the 100 backstroke and the 100 butterfly. 

    This year, they hope to continue improving, and that is one of the goals that Coaches Holly Buckman and John Buckman have set for the team.

    Last year, the Marion County Lady Knights basketball team went a blistering 39-0, winning the state championship in the process. However, that was a year ago, and now it’s time for new head coach Anthony Epps and his team to adjust to life without four of their five starters from last year. 

  • Prices set for basketball passes

    Marion County High School has set the price for season passes for the 2013-14 basketball seasons.

    A boys basketball pass is $20. A girls basketball pass is $15. A pass for both teams is $40.

    The University of Kentucky men’s basketball team lost to Michigan State on Nov. 12, but Wildcat fans Jerry Fowler and his son William will remember this particular game for a very different reason than what happened on the court. 

    On the way to the game, they picked up two other UK fans that had become stranded. 

  • Deer season opens with one that...

    Modern gun season was, if you’ll excuse the expression, a blast. Sorry, just couldn’t resist!

    Anyway, hunted a spot where I had permission the first of the week because my “primary” location still had way too much standing corn. Then, toward the middle of the week, they started taking it out!

  • Deer: Mattingly

    Ryan Mattingly, 14, got this 10-point buck during modern gun season in Spencer County. He is the son of Eddie Mattingly and Joan Gardner.

  • Deer: Miles

    Tanner Miles of Springfield shot this spike buck the first day of youth hunt. He is the son of Brad and Michelle Miles.

  • Shake on it

    Earlier this year, the KHSAA made the decision to ban postgame handshakes following all sporting events. The rationale was that the handshake was an invitation for the teams to fight, or otherwise cause a scuffle. 

    Following a backlash from media, fans, parents, and students, as well as a blatant disregard for the directive by coaches, the KHSAA retracted their statement, saying that the initial press release was “poorly worded.” 

  • Two Lady Knights named to all-...

    Every year, the Kentucky Volleyball Coaches Association analyzes, ranks, and recognizes the achievements of volleyball players across the state. 

    From there, the players are then separated by division and placed into categories of first-team, second-team, and honorable mention. Of the hundreds of girls ranked year, a total of only 27 made First-Team All-state.

    Two Marion County Lady Knights made the cut.
