  • Brown has strong showing at state

    Marion County junior Amy Brown made a marked improvement from last year's round at the state tournament. Next year she hopes to make an even bigger stride.

    "This was Amy's second trip to the Bowling Green course after playing along with the team last year as regional runner-ups," Knight golf coach Freddie Leathers said. "Amy's goal is to reach the top tier in 2011."

    Brown finished with a 95 Tuesday of last week at Bowling Green Country Club. Last year, she shot a 107 at the same course.

  • Knights end season with a win

    The Marion County boys soccer team finished the season with an explosive win over Berea Tuesday of last week.

    The Knights won 5-2 at Berea to garner momentum for the upcoming 29th District tournament.

    "It was a 1-1 game at the half. I didn't think we were playing as aggressive as we should have. Then we erupted in the second half," Knights Head Coach Greg Conley said. "We had five good goals. We did everything offensively we need to do every game. Things went very well."

  • Chargers drop Knights in OT

    The Marion County Knights scored on their first play from scrimmage but couldn't find the end zone the rest of the game as Bullitt East shocked the Knights 14-7 in overtime Friday in Mount Washington.

    Buster Hazelwood scorched the Chargers on the first play from scrimmage of the game as he turned on the turbo and ran for 62-yards for a touchdown with 11:41 to play in the first quarter.

    The rest of the game was a see saw battle.

    The Chargers tied the game in the fourth quarter with 8:17 to play on a 23-yard touchdown pass to senior Wade Kelly.

  • Lady Knights enter post season...

    The Marion County girls' soccer team suffered a 6-0 loss to Bardstown Thursday to gear up for the district tournament.

    Bardstown is a powerhouse, something the Lady Knights will likely face if they advance past the first round of the district tournament.

  • Lady Knights cruise into district

    Marion County entered the district tournament last week with a two game winning streak and a near defeat of the top team in the region.

  • Soccer Knights head into post...

    The Marion County Knights boy's soccer team wraps up the regular season this week against Berea on the road.

    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.

  • Knights fall at region

    The Marion County High School boys' golf team couldn't claim one of the two spots open for the state tournament but a few golfers nearly qualified on their own at Pinewood Golf Course in Columbia Tuesday of last week.

    The Knights shot a team score of 325 for a ninth place finish in the field of 19.

    West Jessamine, as expected, claimed the region title with a team score of 287. Adair County took advantage of their home course and finished second with a 299.

    Nate Johnson of West Jessamine claimed top individual honors, firing a 67.

  • Roby Dome to get new score board

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

    Fans that still pine for the hanging scoreboard are in luck, as a new one is on its way.

  • Brown qualifies for state

    Though the Lady Knights missed qualifying for state as a team, junior Amy Brown continued her best season yet by earning an individual berth to the state tournament.

    Brown finished with a 90 Monday of last week at Elizabethtown Country Club to claim the fourth and final qualifying spot for state from the region.

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

  • Lady Knights tie Pulaski

    The Marion County High School girls' soccer team showed signs of making a post season run by tying 15th Region powerhouse Pulaski County on Saturday in Somerset.

    "They've had a pretty strong season and it was their senior night," Head Coach Hart Hagan said. "They have the second or third best record in their region. Everything was kind of lining up to be a long night. We played a full 80 minutes and got a goal on the board first."
