  • Kentucky Premier lands Nike...

    Kentucky Premier was able to accomplish something that all AAU teams hope to achieve. They are only one of 20 AAU teams in the country to be an official Nike Elite Travel Team. This means that the team will now face top class competition each week, and will now have a chance to win the Nike Nationals, the premier girls AAU tournament, which is held every year. According to Nike, the Kentucky Premier team is the fastest ever to achieve this status.

  • Turkey hunting, bass fishing and...

    Right now until Nov. 2 and Dec. 1-7, you can hunt turkeys with your shotgun. Now hunting turkeys during this fall season is a different story from the spring season.
    In the spring we use locator calls then take advantage of the turkeys desire to reproduce. We make seductive calls to bring the Tom's to us for a shot.
    However, in the fall the birds aren't interested in making little turkeys so we have to use a different tactic.

  • Lebanon Cowboys win youth...

    The Marion County Youth Football League concluded their regular season with their championship series at Campbellsville University Saturday.

    The Marion County Knights soccer team got a bye in the opening round of the Fifth Region boys soccer tournament in Nelson County, but lost in the semifinals Oct. 16 to the Central Hardin Bruins, 3-0.
    “We came in with high hopes, but left broken hearted,” Knights Coach Greg Conley said.  “I believe it was a combination of nerves and the turf.”  

  • Football ban? Not so fast

    The game of football has been around for a long time. There are even reports that early settlers at Jamestown, Va., played a game similar to football with inflated balls in the early 17th century. Now, in the several hundred years since that time, the game has changed in nearly every way. The rules are different, the equipment is different, and the players are different. In its early days, football used to be a very violent sport with some games being stopped because of varieties of very serious injuries.

  • Harriers prepare for regionals

    The Marion County cross country team traveled to the Kentucky Horse Park in Georgetown Saturday to take part in the Lexington Catholic cross country invitational.  
    “It was a great day for racing and we were able to compete against some of the top teams in Kentucky at the state meet course,” Marion County Coach Daniel Johnson said.  “I was glad our kids got to see that kind of environment. I knew it was the biggest race our kids have seen since they’ve been running, but we responded well.”

  • Knights fall to Lexington...

    The Marion County High School Knights struggled in nearly all phases of the game in a 55-6 loss to host Lexington Catholic Friday night. However, the touchdown that Marion County scored in the third period snapped a streak of 11 consecutive quarters of scoreless football.
