  • Fans boost soccer Knights

    The 12th man proved to be critical for the Marion County High School boys' soccer team Tuesday of last week in their 2-1 home win over Pulaski County.

    "The crowd had a lot to do with raising the energy of the team. They had a lot to do with the win," Head Coach Greg Conley said. "Up 2-0, the last several minutes of the game we ran out of gas. They pushed us the rest of the way through. It's also the first time we've played together as a group."

  • Lady Knights struggle on offense

    The Marion County High School girls' soccer team has struggled on offense to start the season but the jolt they need may be coming soon.

    Makayla Epps, last season's offensive threat, has decided to return to the team after initially opting not to play.

    The sophomore asked to return to the team last week and should see action this week.

  • Knights roll on

    The Marion County High School volleyball team racked up a 3-0 record last week to improve to 4-2 on the season.

    The Knights closed out the week by trouncing Washington County at the Roby Dome on Thursday.

    Marion County cruised through two sets, winning 25-11 and 25-13.

    "Honestly, I expected more of a fight from Washington County. This rivalry has always been a tough one but it seemed like they made a lot of mistakes," Head Coach David Hibbard said. "Most of that was due to our outstanding play but both sets were a little one sided."

  • Conley to coach against sons

    Greg Conley, Marion County High School boys' soccer head coach, will add a unique experience to his coaching resume on Thursday when the Knights travel to Danville to play the Boyle County Rebels.

    Conley will coach against his sons, Logan and Noah, who play for Boyle County.

    "Blood is thicker than water, it will be hard for me not to pull for him," Conley said.

    The coach can only hope the Knights can right their ship by then.

  • Gridiron Knights open with...

    The Marion County High School football team will open the season against one of the state's top teams.

    Last season they tangled with Bell County, the 2008 Class AAAA state champion. The Bobcats lost in the 4A semifinals last season to eventual champion Boyle County.

    This year the Knights play host to the John Hardin High School Bulldogs, last year's Class AAAAA runner-up and this year's number two-ranked team in that class.

    The team's lock horns on Saturday at John J. Boswell Field at 8 p.m. for the Heart of Kentucky Pigskin Classic.

  • Lady Knights prepare for KIT

    The Marion County High School girls' golf team recorded something rare in high school golf last week. They tied with Adair County during a match and due to impending darkness, decided against a playoff.

    The Lady Knights played Adair to a 188-188 tie at Rosewood Golf Course on Tuesday of last week.

    Hayley Abell tied for the low round with a 43. Adair's Ashley Goodin also shot a 43.

    Amy Brown shot a 45 to beat out Adair County's Abby Royse who had a 47.

  • Knights fall to LaRue

    The Marion County High School volleyball team lost to LaRue County on Thursday to move their season record to one win and two losses.

    LaRue (5-0) beat the Knights in two sets (25-18, 25-21) at LaRue.

    "I was very disappointed with our lack of focus tonight," Head Coach David Hibbard said in his match report. "We knew LaRue had a strong corps of servers and that if we could handle their serves we would have a chance to win. Even knowing that up front, we did not come ready to play."
