  • Weather has been a bit confusing

    Had to check my calendar last week! Just wanted to make sure I hadn't pulled a Rip Van Winkle! Granted, I like to sleep late sometimes, but going to sleep in early January and waking up in the spring would've been quite a stretch!
    What conditions would cause such confusion? Well, thunderstorms and tornados are sort of expected in the spring, not January!

  • Epps Sets Another School Record

    On Tuesday night, the Marion County Lady Knights traveled to Georgetown to face the Scott County Lady Cardinals.  After exploding for 30 points in the opening eight minutes, the Lady Knights went on to rout Scott County 84-47.  Marion County shot nearly 50% from the field in the game and easily picked up the victory to improve to 17-3 on the season.

  • Knights Grind Out Win Over...

    On Friday night, the Marion County Knights hosted the Taylor County Cardinals in a pivotal district matchup at the Roby Dome.  The Knights needed a win in order to remain in contention for the number one seed in the the upcoming district tournament, and that is what they got.  After a hard fought physical game, the Knights connected on key free throws down the stretch to seal the 59-51 victory.

  • Aqua Knights compete against 19...

    The Marion County Aqua Knights swim team traveled to Somerset recently, and 19 teams competed. Numerous Marion County swimmers participated in various events. "We don't have a large number of swimmers, but for a small team they did well in the events they participated in," Coach Holly Buckman said.
    The Aqua Knights will be back in action on Jan. 28, when they travel to Shelbyville to take part in a meet.
    Individual and relay results from the meet in Glasgow are as follows:

  • NFL playoffs

    This year, watching the NFL playoffs is different for me. Usually, I am cheering on my favorite NFL team, the Indianapolis Colts, to win each playoff game and make it to the Super Bowl. But, due to a 2-14 record after their star quarterback Peyton Manning didn't play a snap this season, the Colts didn't make it to the playoffs, which hasn't happened in several seasons.

    In the nightcap game of the Autism Awareness Classic held Saturday at Marion County High School, the Marion County Knights played Central Hardin. The Knights led most of the way, but allowed the Bruins to creep back into the game near the end. Marion County was able to hang on and take the 71-65 victory.

  • Knights handle Eagles

    In their second match-up of the season, the Marion County Knights defeated the Campbellsville Eagles Friday by a final score of 67-34. All but two Knight players broke into the scoring column in the rout led by sophomore Clay Lanham with 10 points. With the win, the Knights move into a tie with Taylor County for the top spot in the district. The Knights have yet to tangle with the Cardinals this season, and have one more game against Adair County in Columbia.

  • Knights defeat Boyle County

    In their first game of 2012, the Marion County Knights hosted the Boyle County Rebels Tuesday of last week at the Roby Dome. After trailing until nearly halfway through the second quarter, the Knights fought back and maintained the lead for the remainder of the game in route to the 13-point victory.
