  • Lady Knights return - a year...

    A trip to state was nice but the Lady Knights have higher aspirations this year.
    The Marion County High School girls’ basketball team finished with a 33-2 record last season, one of the best outings in program history.
    “I think our first goal is to get back to state tournament,” Lady Knights Head Coach Trent Milby said. “These girls have that on their mind and have hopes of winning state championship.”
    How does a team that returns three of the state’s top prospects and a preseason number one ranking reach that goal?

  • Bittersweet farewell

    This is it, folks. This is my last column with The Lebanon Enterprise. Hey, stop that. I can hear your applause from here. That’s not nice.
    Seriously though, this is my last issue as a sports correspondent for this paper.
    Many of you are probably already aware of this but I recently took a job with The Springfield Sun across the border. Hey now, stop that booing and hissing. It’s not polite. Yes, I have been called worse than a turncoat. Thank you very much.

  • The path to modesty

    This story is the first in a two-part series about local MMA fighter Shawn Woodyard. Check back next week for the second part. Warning: This story includes some adult language.
