  • Stay alert for 'free'...

    Well it snuck up on me. Last weekend was the first youth only deer hunt. There's another on Dec. 29-30 which is a "free" weekend. This past weekend was simply "youth only" which might cause some confusion!
    In Kentucky resident and non-resident children under the age of 12 are not required to purchase licenses and permits?except elk lottery application.
    Both an annual hunting license and an additional permit are required for hunters 12 and older.
    Ages 12-15 require a youth hunting license plus a youth deer permit costing $10.

  • Knights soccer wins district,...

    Last week was a difficult week for Marion County boys soccer coach Greg Conley.
    Conley received two yellow cards in the game against North Hardin and was not allowed to coach in the team's next threegames, including the team's last regular season game.
    Now that his three-game absence is over, the Knights are preparing to make a run in the regional tournament at Nelson County High School. The team began play in the tournament last night against Central Hardin.

  • Lady Knights make soccer history

    The Marion County Lady Knights soccer team made history last week by capturing their first district title in program history. Victories over Taylor County in the opening round and LaRue County in the finals sent the Lady Knights to the regional tournament as 18th district champions.  
    "After a big win against them (Taylor County) just two weeks prior, I was afraid that we would come out slow and overlook them this time, but thankfully I was wrong," Head Coach Devin Johnson said.

  • Judgment call lets 'Wild...

    I've always been one to watch a few baseball games throughout the season, but I must admit that I am not the biggest fan of professional baseball. Don't get me wrong, I love the sport of baseball, but for the most part Major League games can seem to drag on and on. Now that the Wild Card round is complete, and we are in the midst of the Divisional Series, I find myself watching the games.

  • Cross country team going strong

    The Marion County High School cross country team competed in a pair of competitions recently, and posted some quality individual times.  On Sept. 27, the team took part in the Weekday Classic in LaRue County. Head Coach Daniel Johnson noted that when the girls' race was finished, it was discovered that the lead vehicle took a wrong turn. The misdirection ended up making the race 3.42 miles instead of the usual 5k, which is 3.1 miles.

  • Knights shut out by Mercer...

    The Marion County Knights football team hosted the Mercer County Titans at John J. Boswell Field Friday. The Knights were unable to score in the game, losing the game by a final score of 55-0. The loss drops the Knights record to 2-5 on the season, with three games remaining.
    "We were outplayed in every facet of the game," Head Coach Jeff Robbins said. "We blew blocking and defensive assignments all night."
