  • Big names, big moves 

    Kyrie Irving's announcement back in mid-July that he wanted to be traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers sent shockwaves through the NBA; the Cavs All-Star point guard said he wanted to be more of a focal point on the team and that he no longer had a desire to play alongside LeBron James. 
    Then, a month later, Cleveland granted Irving's wish, sending the All-Star point guard to Boston in exchange for star point guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and the Brooklyn Nets' unprotected 2018 first-round draft pick back on Aug. 22. 

  • GIRLS SOCCER: Lady Knights shut...

    The Marion County Lady Knights were unable to find their offense this week as they were shut out by the Western Hills Lady Wolverines 10-0 on Aug. 28 and by district rival LaRue County 7-0 on Aug. 30. Despite the shutouts, Marion County head coach Daniel Johnson said his team had a solid start but could not sustain it for the whole match.

  • Vaught’s Views: UK volleyball...

    By Larry Vaught

    Kentucky football players know that Corey Edmond, director of performance, is going to test their physical limits to enhance their performance on the field.
    What they may not know is that he’s just as demanding with his daughter, UK sophomore volleyball standout Leah Edmond. She was Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Year last season and a third-team All-American — only the 11th UK player ever to earn All-American honors — following a standout career at Dunbar High School in Lexington.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Knights score...

    The Marion County Lady Knights put their firepower on full display, dispatching the Adair County Lady Indians handily in three sets (25-8, 25-8, 25-14) in Columbia Aug. 28, and scoring a solid win in the district opener. 
    "This was a feel-good night for us to get our first district win and push our record to 3-1," Lady Knights Head Coach David Hibbard said.

  • BOYS SOCCER: Marion County opens...

    Colby Hood returned from his suspension for a red card in the season opener. He returned in a big way, scoring three goals to help Marion County accomplish a 6-1 win over Campbellsville on Aug. 22 in the Knights' district opener. 
    "I'm so happy he is back," Conley said. 

  • FOOTBALL: Knights show fight but...

    The Knights got the first crack at a score Friday evening against the Union County Braves with a 80-yard catch and run from Mason Sullivan to Noah Abell after giving up a score on the opening kickoff last week. 
    For three quarters, Marion County hung with the Braves, trailing only by six at the half and by 14 at the end of the third quarter. Union County, however, dispatched Allen Harmon's squad with a 20-point fourth quarter and took a 49-21 win on John J. Boswell Field.

  • From worst to first 

    Some changes take time to happen. Others happen in the blink of an eye. 

  • GIRLS SOCCER: Lady Knights shut...

    A slow start. Not what Marion County was wanting. 
    The John Hardin Lady Bulldogs took full advantage, racing out for two goals in the first seven minutes and coasting to a 7-0 win against the Lady Knights in Elizabethtown on Aug. 23. 
    "We started off slow and they got two goals in the first seven minutes," Marion County Head Coach Daniel Johnson said. "Then we played our best stretch of soccer for 30 minutes, holding them scoreless and managing several shots on goal. We were just unable to finish.
