  • Lady Knights get win in double...

    The Marion County Lady Knights narrowly defeated visiting George Rogers Clark Lady Cardinals, 52-49, in a double overtime game on Monday.
    The Lady Knights (1-0)won thanks to free throws by sophomore guard Samantha Daugherty and freshman point guard Haeli Howard in the second overtime.
    Coach Anthony Epps said that while the team missed a lot of free throws during the evening, it was because of fatigue.
    “I feel great,” Epps said. “One of the things we are emphasizing at practice is to work hard.”

    After breakfast we headed to the Quack Shack.
    Jason and C.C., the young guys, set about putting out a small spread of decoys, to include two “swimmers.”
