  • Hunter education is recommended

    Well, I told ya I'd let ya know about the Hunter Education Class (orange card) as soon as I found out something. Since then I received a call from George Hasty about the class.
    First, even if you aren't "required" by law to take the class, it is outstanding. Every time I've been I've learned something new. And this year there's something really new, as in a new instructor.
    Mary McCullen was our instructor for years, but retired this year. So, we'll have somebody new this year!

  • Knights soccer stays unbeaten

    The Marion County High School boys soccer team has played three games on the young season, and has been able to pick up wins in all three contests. On Tuesday of last week, the team opened up regular season play against district opponent LaRue County on the road. After playing well in the first half and holding a two goal lead at the break, the Knights came out a bit sluggish in the second half and allowed LaRue County to get back in the game.

  • Lady Knights in search of first...

    The Marion County Lady Knights soccer team has played three games this season, and is still in search of their first win. The team has lost a pair of 7-4 decisions and had a tough outing in a 7-0 defeat.
    First year, Head Coach Devin Spalding knows that his team has potential, but is still in search of finding that right combination to collect a win.
    After coming off an impressive 8-1 victory in their final preseason game against Whitley County, the Lady Knights were ready to open up regular season play against Berea on Monday of last week.

  • Lady Knights improve to 4-1

    The Marion County Lady Knights volleyball team competed in three matches last week, winning all three to improve their overall record to 4-1 on the season.  The wins came over LaRue County, Taylor County and Campbellsville.

    The Lady Knights traveled to LaRue County to play their fifth game of the season Thursday night. Marion County was able to take the first two sets, and after losing the third set, battle back to win the match in the fourth set.

  • A busy time of year

    After surviving a hot and record-breaking summer, school has now begun in Marion County. I know that school kids that are reading this are disappointed, but I am relieved that this has happened. I can't say the same for Jessica however, since she teaches fourth grade and had to head back to work. 

  • New concussion guidelines in...

    Beginning May 1, 2012, House Bill 281 signed into law by Governor Steve Beshear, went into effect. The bill prevents student athletes from continuing to play if they experience a concussion or exhibit symptoms of a concussion. Kentucky was among 19 states petitioned by the National Football League and National Collegiate Athletic Association to support legislation to decrease the number of concussions suffered by student athletes.

  • Knights have rough start

    The Marion County High School football team hosted a preseason scrimmage against Meade County Friday evening. In the game, the Knights had some struggles and came up short against the Green Wave.

    "I guess the most important stat of the night is eight turnovers," Head Coach Jeff Robbins said. "You can't beat anyone with eight turnovers, let alone a good 6A team like Meade County."
