Last week I forgot to mention who we booked our Snow Goose hunt with. We booked with Premier Flight Guide Service and they can be reached at www.goosegrinders.com.
Please understand, our lack of success was in no way the fault of Premier Flight or our guides. It was just some very crappy luck!
After completing the best season in school history last year, the Marion County High School softball team is hoping to duplicate their success and improve on their final result. Under the direction of second-year coach Todd Spalding, the Lady Knights will begin play next Monday when they travel to Thomas Nelson High School in Bardstown. After that, the Lady Knights will begin a stretch of three straight home games in a four-day span beginning on March 18.
Marion County Baseball Head Coach Chad Spalding begins his 17th season at the helm this year. He’s looking forward to the start of season for several reasons. One is that he believes his team is primed for a success.
“We are a senior dominant team,” he said. “This is the first time we have had six seniors in a long time. We also have a junior that has as much experience as most or all of the seniors.”
Spalding went on to discuss what this means for his team.
As we get closer to the end of basketball season, several awards are preparing to be handed out. Most of these awards that are coming up now, are not your everyday, run-of-the-mill awards. These are big time awards that cover the entire state or in one particular case, the entire country.
Marion County High School senior Brooks Divine headed to Broadbent Arena this past weekend to compete in the Mason Dixon Games, which are the indoor state track and field championships in Kentucky. Last year, Divine brought home the state championship in the pole vault and was out to defend his title.
Not only did Divine repeat his performance, he broke the class AA state meet record in the pole vault event. Divine cleared 13’8” to bring home the title and eclipsed the previous record of 13’6”, which was set in 2000.
In the semifinal game of the 5th Region Tournament on Sunday night against Elizabethtown, Marion County found themselves in a position they hadn’t been in all season. At the half, the Lady Knights trailed 26-25, their first halftime deficit of the year. In the second half, the Lady Knights offense got on track and the team began to pull away. In the end, Marion County advanced with a 65-43 win.
The Marion County Lady Knights made history by becoming the first team, boys or girls, to win four straight 5th region titles Tuesday evening. The Lady Knights defeated LaRue County in the championship game, which was played at Green County High School, by a final score of 82-60. The win secures the Lady Knights a spot in the Sweet 16 beginning March 13 in Bowling Green, and extends their undefeated streak to 35 games.
