    The Knights celebrated senior night on Saturday against John Hardin despite a 4-0 loss to the Bulldogs.

    Seniors getting recognition were Ethan Drury, Abraham Guzman and Dylan Browning.

    The Knights offense couldn't get going in the cold, wet conditions at Elmer J. George Field. The Bulldogs built a 3-0 lead by halftime and cruised through the second half.

    On Thursday, the Knights played hosts to Meade County in a 2-1 win.

    When the old scoreboard went away in the Roby Dome, fans wondered where it went.

    Senior Hayley Abell finished with a 93, finishing fifth for an individual berth. The top four individuals are allowed to move on to state.

    Washington County beat the Knights 3-0, the only points of the game coming late in the third quarter.
