Losing only one player to graduation after compiling a 22-13 record, the Marion County Lady Knights softball team has high expectations for the 2011 season. After winning the 20th district title last year, the Lady Knights beat Washington County 10-0 in the first round of the regional softball tournament before losing to Green County 2-1 in the second round of region.
Head Coach Trent Milby hopes that this year’s squad will win the district crown for the second year in a row, and take their chances in the 5th region tournament once again.
With a new coach at the helm, the Marion County Knights tennis team has a positive outlook about the upcoming season. Because the team lost several strong players from last year, Head Coach Chase Burdette says this is a building year. “Team positions aren’t very solid yet, which is to be expected with a young team,” Burdette said.
The Marion County Lady Knights tennis team won’t have their top singles players from last year, as Kameron Simmons and Leanna Begley were lost to graduation. For this year’s team, Head Coach Angela Holt says she is still in the process of determining the seedings.
