  • Knights prepare for Cards

    A rivalry continues under the bright lights of John J. Boswell Stadium Friday as Taylor County travels to Lebanon to face the Knights.

    The Cardinals (0-4) are looking for their first win of the season while the Knights (2-1) look for a third straight win.

    Taylor County features a new coach in Curtis Cotton. He coached at Lexington Christian last season, working under Paul Rains. That team lost in the Class A state final against Mayfield.

  • Knights smash Shelby

    The Marion County High School football team is known for their smash mouth style but the Knights hit even harder Friday night against Shelby County.

    The Knights ran over, under and through the Rockets for a demonstrative 42-7 win in Shelbyville.

    Marion County rambled for 435 rushing yards in 55 carries against the Rockets. With runners like senior Clayton Smith and junior Jeremy Mattingly, the Knights sometimes look like a more power running team than in year's past.

  • Lady Knights fare well at Joy...

    The Marion County High School girls' golf team had another good showing Saturday at the Joy Invitational at Wild Turkey Trace in Lawrenceburg.

    The Lady Knights shot a team score of 355. Their overall finish in the field of 15 was unknown at press time.

    "We weren't the best team but we certainly weren't the worst. I'm hoping we're probably fifth or sixth," Lady Knights Head Coach Daniel McFall said.

  • Knights prepare for third annual...

    With another round of match play in the books, the Marion County High School golf team improved their match play record to 13-5.

    However, the focus this week is on tournament play as the Knights host the Heartland Athletic Conference (HAC) tournament Monday and the third annual Marion County Invitational Saturday at Rosewood Golf Course.

  • Knights start a streak

    The Marion County High School boys' soccer team enters this week riding a two game winning streak, their first of the season. The Knights are also on a four game non-losing streak, tying the two games prior to their winning streak.

    The Knights traveled to Bowling Green Saturday to face Warren East. They left Hilltopper country with a 3-1 win.

    "We were out shooting, out playing, and out possessing them. I thought it could have been more than 3-1," Knights Head Coach Greg Conley said.

  • Marion County falls at HAC

    The Marion County boys' and girls' golf team couldn't seize home course advantage on Monday during the Heartland Athletic Conference tournament at Rosewood Golf Club.

    The boys' team finished runner-up behind Adair County, ending the Knights HAC tournament championship run after two years.

    Adair County finished with a team score of 319 while Marion County had a 333.

    Joseph Elder shot a 79 while Taylor Brady had an 81. Brian Loper finished with an 85 and Korey Hundley had an 88.

  • Lady Knights' offense stalls

    The Marion County High School girls' soccer team continues to struggle to score, despite numerous close calls at the net.

    With sophomore Makayla Epps out for at least a week, it may not improve immediately.

    Epps went down with a knee injury Thursday against Taylor County and will remain out for a week, according to Lady Knights Head Coach Hart Hagan.

    The Lady Knights offense has picked up production though it hasn't resulted in goals. They have routinely out shot opponents by three or four shots to one.

  • Knights name captains

    After six long weeks, the Marion County High School boys' soccer team named captains for the team.

    "It's been a long six weeks, trying to figure that out," Knights Head Coach Greg Conley said. "It's the longest I've waited in my career I think. We've been waiting for leadership to emerge."

    Conley gave the nod to seniors Dylan Browning and Ethan Drury. Juniors Scott Hunt and John Southall were also given the captain role by Conley.

    The coach said Hunt made a speech in the last two weeks that has really helped the team come together.

  • 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).
