  • Hagan heads up girls' soccer

    Bardstown native Hart Hagan will take the reins as the Marion County High School girls' soccer head coach this season.

    Hagan inherits a team that finished last season with five wins and 10 losses and a second round exit in the 29th District tournament.

    He replaces Neil Payne, who recently accepted a teaching and head coaching position at Montgomery County High School.

  • Knights have an up and down week

    The Marion County High School boys' golf team struggled to start the season but showed steady improvement after the first week of play.

    "We graduated two excellent golfers. We've got three kids to build on," Head Coach Freddie Leathers said. "We're trying to rebuild."

    The Knights competed in two tournaments last week, faring 20 strokes better as a team in the second tournament.

  • Boys' soccer looks to their...

    After graduating seven seniors from last year's 9-8-4 team, Boys' Soccer Head Coach Greg Conley will have to rely on youth this season.

    "We're so young and inexperienced and small physically. Our goal in the regular season is to gain experience," Conley said. "I'm not as concerned with wins and losses during the season if we're ready for the postseason."

  • Girls' golf off to fast...

    The Marion County High School girls' golf team started their campaign for a region title off on the right note last week, getting two wins in match play.

    On Thursday, the Lady Knights scored possibly their lowest team round in the last three seasons when they easily beat Casey County 174 to 210.

    "I think we've been as low as 178 and 179 but never down to a 174," Head Coach Danny McFall said. "I think for us just starting our season we've played very, very well."

  • Girls' soccer takes on a...

    Marion County High School's girls' soccer team will look a little different this year but the core remains unchanged.

    For starters, former Head Coach Neil Payne has moved on to a job in Montgomery County. Last year's assistant coach Hart Hagan has been given the keys to the program. He added MCHS alum Ashley Ballard to the coaching staff.

    Secondly, the Lady Knights will be without last season's darling, Makayla Epps.

  • Boys golf team tees off

    After looking like a region contender last season, the Marion County High School boys golf team fell victim to tough conditions at the region to finish short of their goal of going to state. This year, they look to rebound.

    Gone are seniors Tommy Carrico and Joseph George, two of the top golfers from last year's squad. Three of the top five from last year remain, however, and look to lead the Knights this season.

    Brian Loper, Joseph Elder and Taylor Brady return to avenge last season.

  • Napier wins Lebanon Open

    Recently, more than 40 disc golfers traveled to Graham Memorial Park for the 2010 Lebanon Open disc golf tournament.

    Dutch Napier of Owensboro took home top honors in the Pro Open, beating out Eric Gallusser and Scott Rief of Louisville. Jason Thompson of Lexington cam in fourth while Robbie Wildt of Louisville finished fifth. Jeremy Watts and Martin Young tied for sixth.

    Jay Embree of Lexington won first place in the Advanced men's division. Josh Winfrey of Lawrenceburg finished second.

  • Volleyball program looks to make...

    With the addition of transfer middle hitter Katie Dingus to an already talented squad, the Marion County High School volleyball team has all the pieces to make a run at their first regional title.

    "This could be the best team in program history as they try to defend back-to-back district titles and make a push for a regional title," MCHS volleyball Head Coach David Hibbard said.

  • Girls golf gunning for region,...

    The Marion County High School girls golf team returns five of last year's top six golfers this season. This season, their sights are set higher than a region runner-up finish. This time, they want the title outright.

    "We're excited about the season and about representing Marion County well," Head Coach Danny McFall said. "Every practice and every match is to get ready for the region."

    McFall enters his third season at the helm. His previous two seasons have ended with state tournament berths for an individual and for the team.

  • Hills win Cornhole Classic

    The fourth annual Heart of Kentucky Cornhole Classic presented by Bud Light drew more than 40 teams on Saturday, with Team Hill/Hill from Ohio emerging from the field as the overall winners.

    Tournament director Ray Osborne said attendance was down for this year's event but only because three other tournaments nearby drew away some of the regulars.

    Team Hill/Hill won $1,300 for first place while Team Atha/Atha, also from Ohio, took home $600 for second place. Team Duke/Derrick from Louisville took home $150 for third place.
