    Marion County High School junior Joseph Elder ended a great week on the course Saturday after 22 holes at Rosewood Golf Course during the third annual Marion County Invitational. Elder finished 18 holes with a 72, tied with Boyle County's Dakota Jarman. It took four playoff holes for Jarman to finally catch a break on the ninth hole and birdie putt for the individual tournament title. "Both players had two putt pars on the first hole," Knights Head Coach Freddie Leathers said.

  • Lady Knights net a win

    The Marion County High School girls' soccer team came away with a win Saturday, breaking a scoreless and winless stretch.  Freshman Lindsey Browning netted her third goal of the season against Wayne County at Elmer J. George Field Saturday.  The win moves the Lady Knights record to 2-8-3. Browning's goal broke a four game stretch in which the Lady Knights struggled to find the back of the net.  "(Wayne County) didn't really press much offensively," Lady Knights Head Coach Hart Hagan said.

  • Knights stomp Cards

    Marion County left no doubt who was superior in their gridiron border battle with Taylor County High School Friday night at John J. Boswell Field. After accumulating nearly 500 yards of offense and playing with a running clock for nearly the entire second half, the Knights hit the showers early in their 49-0 win over Taylor County.  With this win the Knights are on a four game winning streak against the Cardinals. More impressively, they have held Taylor County scoreless in the last four contests.

  • Lady Knights prepare for region

    After finishing third in the Heartland Athletic Conference (HAC) tournament, the Marion County High School girls' golf team has only the region tournament to look towards.  Last season, the Lady Knights finished runner-up in the region, earning a team berth in the state tournament in Bowling Green. Lady Knights Head Coach Danny McFall and the team have focused on the goal of returning to state all season. McFall said the team will travel to Elizabethtown early before the region tournament in order to fit in a practice round.  &q
