  • All stars hope to play tonight...

    Last week’s rain caused major delays for local Little League all-star teams.

    The start of the state softball tournament was scheduled to start Sunday at North Laurel Little League in London, but field conditions delayed the start of the tournament until 6 p.m. Monday, July 8, for Marion County’s 11-12 softball all star team.

    Marion County’s 11-year-old baseball all stars are still trying to complete the 5th District tournament at South Hardin Little League in Elizabethtown.

  • 11-year-old baseball game...

    The Marion County 11-year-old baseball all-stars were scheduled to play Russell County tonight at South Hardin Little League in the 5th District baseball tournament, but that game has been postponed again.

    The 11-year-olds are the only Marion County baseball team still alive in the district tournament. Marion County has already lost once in the double-elimination tournament.

    The winner will advance to the championship round against Campbellsville, who has not yet lost in the tournament. 

  • Divine Equine

    Though school is out, it does not mean children can’t learn.
    The Horse Club, taught and led by Joseph Grant, Ruth Mackey and Scott Gardiner, allows children to learn about horses as well as increase their physical abilities as they learn how to bond with the equine species.
    So far, the children in attendance have worked on crafts, learned about saddles and other equipment, as well as how to interact with, ride and groom horses.

  • Little League round-up

    Marion County’s 9-10 softball all-stars finished their 2013 campaign as the 5th District runner-up.
    South Hardin proved to be Marion County’s nemesis, handing the local all-stars both of their losses in the double-elimination tournament. Marion County’s second loss to South Hardin came June 27 in the district championship, 7-1.
    In that game, Jenny Mattingly picked up Marion County’s only hit, while Maggie Overstreet scored the team’s only run.
    South Hardin scored its seven runs as a result of five Marion County errors.

  • Hunter education class at...

    Early deadline again. And again, not much to write about!
    Did find out something interesting you’ll want to remember.
    Last Friday I was stopped at Sportsman Lake and told there would be a hunter education class (orange card class) held there on Aug. 3.
    That’s right, apparently the class has gone from a three-day venue to a one day, eight-hour class.

  • Moooove over Warrior Dash

    It began in the tune of an air horn. Like a riot, people from all over the state ripped and roared in waves through a single choke point, the starting line. In the group of adrenaline filled runners, there were cries of joy while others said nothing at all. It was all drowned out in the thumps of feet hitting the dirt and mud.
