  • Knights shock Collins

    Though some games have been bigger in scale and more meaningful, the Marion County High School's win over Collins on Friday might have been the biggest win in the last seven years.

    Marion County kept the Collins off the field long enough to grab a 30-27 win, knocking off the team that some have picked to win the Class AAAA state title.

    "I really truly think that's one of the biggest wins in our program," Knights Head Coach Jeff Robbins said. "We've played in bigger games but this was a huge, huge game."

  • Knights win the MCI

    The Marion County High School volleyball team had their best week of the season so far, reeling off ten straight wins to gain a stranglehold on district play and win the Marion County Invitational.

     

    The Knights cruised through their own tournament Saturday at the Roby Dome, losing only two sets out of 12.

     

    The Knights cruised through Bardstown (25-14, 25-15), John Hardin (25-18, 26-24), Allen-County Scottsville (25-9, 25-13), Silver Grove (25-16, 25-13) and Bullitt Central (24-26, 25-14, 25-7).

     

  • Gardner drives away the...

    Ten years is a long time.

    From 2000 to 2010, the Lebanon Country Club (LCC) has gone over the 50-year mark for having the Lebanon Invitational Tournament (LIT).

    In that same time period, a new 18-hole golf course opened up to the public.

    In those 10 years, LIT champions have come and gone but only one thing has remained the same: Dave Gardner is still the champion of the longest drive.

    Gardner won, again, Friday at LCC. He beat LCC club champion T.J. Raikes by a few yards, he said.

  • Manning claims LIT crown

    Dr. Curt Manning, the No. 2 seed in this year's championship flight of the Lebanon Invitational Tournament, defeated last year's champion Pat "Woody" Clements on the 18th hole Monday afternoon for the 52nd LIT crown.

    Manning is a first time winner of the LIT championship flight. According to Jerry Reynolds, tournament director, Manning has finished second several times.

    Manning defeated Springfield's Mikey Yates in the morning final four match to advance to the finals. Clements, from Louisville, defeated Josh Matney in the final four.

  • Boys' golf misses a chance

    The Marion County High School boys' golf team missed a chance when they lost to one of the region's top teams in Boyle County on Thursday at Rosewood.

    "I was disappointed because we had a golden opportunity to upset a Boyle County team that has won two tournaments this year and is considered the second best team in the region," Knights Head Coach Freddie Leathers said. "Both teams struggled tonight and it seemed that both teams were looking forward more to the long weekend than the match."

  • Lady Knights get revenge

    The Marion County High School girls' golf team avenged the blemishes on their match play record this season by offing Taylor County and Adair County on Thursday at Pinewood Country Club in Columbia.

    The Lady Knights previously lost to Taylor County and tied with Adair, thus ruining their perfect match play record.

    Hayley Abell shot an astounding 37 to lead both teams. Amy Brown shot a 42 while Olivia Carrico shot a 44. Taylor Howard finished with a 56 while Brianna Reynolds left with a 67.

  • Lady Knights net first win

    Marion County High School's girls' soccer program netted their first win of the season on Sunday, beating North Laurel 2-2 during a penalty kick shoot out at Elmer J. George Field.

    Sophomore Claire Hagan was a wall in the net, keeping North Laurel out of the goal in the second half and coming up big during penalty kicks.

    "I told her before the shoot out started, 'This is where you make a name for yourself,'" Lady Knights Head Coach Hart Hagan said. "Any nerves she had she put them aside. It just shows how strong her instincts are."

  • Knights fall to John Hardin in...

    For three quarters, it looked as though the smaller, slower Knights could pull an upset over the second best team in Class 5A.

    Athleticism and size prevailed in the fourth however, as John Hardin High School used big plays to put the Knights away at John J. Boswell Field on Saturday night during the Heart of Kentucky Pigskin Classic.

    The Knights nearly took a big hit for the rest of the season, however, when junior quarterback Ryan Peterson went down on the last play of the first half with an apparent rib injury.

  • JV golfers step up

    The Marion County High School boys' golf team showcased new talent on the varsity squad on Saturday during the Tates Creek Invitational as the Knights shot a team score of 333.

    Aaron Hamilton, Logan Medley and Korey Hundley hit the links for the Knights in the tournament as the team was without number three and four golfers Brian Loper and Blair Gorley.

  • Knights set to tangle with...

    The Marion County High School football team will test its pass defense on Friday night when Collins High School comes to town.

    The pass happy team puts a lot of points on the board, averaging 48.5 points per game in their first two games in existence.

    "They run a spread offense with (senior) Branden Cresap at quarterback. Everybody is touting him as a possible Mr. Kentucky. He's the real deal," Knights Head Coach Jeff Robbins said.

    Cresap has a big target in 6-4 receiver Ben Axline and a solid front line.
