  • Hunting season 'breaks...

    Had to run this in early due to being out of town over the weekend, but back by the time you read this!

    Anyway, just to get you caught up on what's in store: Aug. 15 is the opening of our squirrel season. Then, on Sept. 1, it sorta breaks loose. On that date we have several openings. Archery deer season starts and we have the early resident goose season and dove season. Just remember, you can't shoot doves, on opening day only, until 11 a.m. And, if you're hunting geese and doves, don't have any lead shot with you while goose hunting.

  • Knights soccer team begins season

    The Marion County High School Knights soccer season is in full effect.

    Saturday, the Knights fell to West Jessamine 3-0.

    Saturday, Aug. 4, the Knights tied with Paris 2-2.

    Head Coach Greg Conley noted that the West Jessamine game was much closer than the 3-0 score showed. Both of these games were preseason scrimmages, and the team opened regular season play yesterday at LaRue County.

  • Lady Knights start on strong note

    After a rough and difficult season last year, the Lady Knights soccer team has started off this year on the right foot, easily defeating Whitley County in the Berea Lady Pirate Soccerama 8-1. The team took a commanding 7-0 lead into the halftime break and easily cruised to the victory.

    In the game, Noel Obata scored five goals for the team. Sara Obata, Colleen Rakes and Miranda Bradshaw each scored one goal.

  • Lady Knights go 1-1 in first...

    The Marion County High School Lady Knights volleyball team defeated Thomas Nelson High School Tuesday of last week on the road, and lost to Nelson County Thursday night at the Roby Dome.

    This season, a match consists of the best of five sets.

  • Soccer teams getting long...

    The Marion County High School boys and girls soccer teams at Marion County High School have been receiving some coaching assistance in a somewhat unusual way this past summer.
    Beginning last season, the teams were getting some help from Alex Kerr of England. The story of how he came to help with the Marion County soccer program involves a random chance meeting.
    Kerr was born in England, and soccer in England is the major sport.
    "Soccer in England is bigger than basketball is in the United States," he said.

  • MCHS baseball player competes in...

    Marion County High School sophomore Robbie Spalding competed in the East Kentucky 15 and under baseball state tournament in Lexington recently. Spalding played for a team from Russell County that made it all the way to the championship game of the tournament before falling to Southeastern from Lexington 2-1.
    Spalding led the entire tournament in batting average, total hits, and RBI's.  Spalding also pitched in one game. He pitched six innings, struck out 10 batters and did not allow a run.
