  • LMS girls finish strong

    Following a 70-0 record over the course of two seasons, the Lebanon Middle School girls’ basketball team finished the year with a 20-7 record. The Lady Patriots finished runner-up to Anderson County, possibly the best middle school team in the state in a recent tournament.

    "The girls really played hard and improved as season went on. They now will move on to the high school and play for the freshman team," coach Trent Milby said.

    Milby listed members of the team and a brief note about each one.

    Team members include:

  • St. A heads to Jaglowicz...

      0 0 0

  • Knights battle Lone Oak in Best...

    0 0 0

  • Knights among Elite Eight

    The last time LaRue County and Marion County played each other, the Knights pulled away in the second half after a nip and tuck first half.

    This time after the dust settled the Knights were up 28-0 with four minutes to go in the half. So much for the rematch.

    Marion County High School was hitting on all cylinders in their 41-14 win over district rival LaRue in the second round of the Class AAAA playoffs Friday at John J. Boswell Field.

  • Mattingly finishes strong

    Matthew Mattingly conquered the hills of the Kentucky Horse Park to place in the top 60 runners in the state in his class.

    Mattingly, a senior, finished 56th out of 232 runners in the KHSAA Class AA state cross-country meet on Saturday in Lexington with a time of 18 minutes and 29 seconds to accomplish his goal of making it to state.

    "I was really wanting to get into the 17's but those hills make you run out of gas," Mattingly said after the race. "Plus with all those people it's kind of like NASCAR."

  • Knights face athletic Western...

    The Knights travel to Western High School on Friday night. Kick off is set for 7:30 p.m. in the region championship game. The winner advances to the state semi final at Western Kentucky University to face either Lone Oak (12-0) or Allen County - Scottsville (11-0).

    A caravan will be leaving from the new Kroger at 5:30 p.m. on Friday night. Those wishing to paint car windows should arrive early.

    Western High School (7-5) may have a lower win percentage than Marion County High School (10-2) but they still hold home field advantage on Friday night.

  • Several Knights named to all-...

    Marion County High School senior Dylan Peterson became the second Knight in the last two seasons to at least share a piece of the District Player of the Year recently.

    Last season Eric Miles was co-player of the year with North Bullitt's Dalton Cissell. This year Peterson claims the honor by himself.

    Several of his teammates were named to the all-district team. The Knights have loaded the all-district team for the past three seasons.   

  • Lady Knights named to All Region...

    Recently two Marion County High School girls soccer players were named to the 15th Region regular season all-region team. Senior Christan Montgomery was named first team all-region while freshman Makayla Epps was named second team all-region.

    Montgomery got the nod because of her defensive skills, often times serving as a brick wall in front of the goal as the Lady Knights goalie. She took a barrage of shots against Boyle County early in the season as the Lady Knights lost in respectable fashion.

  • Mattingly earns a trip to state

    Finally, his time came. Marion County High School senior Matthew Mattingly finally achieved a goal he's had for two years by qualifying for the state cross country meet on Saturday during the region meet.

    Mattingly finished seventh out of 78 runners to qualify.

    "He was a shoe in last year but he pulled a hamstring. He's really been working hard," Cross Country Head Coach Sherbie King said. "His goal this year was to go to state. I told him before the meet he had to at least get in the top 10."

  • LaRue looks for revenge

    Revenge is never sweeter than in the playoffs.

    Friday night the LaRue County Hawks (7-4) hope to avenge a 33-7 home loss earlier this season to the Marion County Knights (9-2).

    "They have a lot of emotion, you can tell on video. It's going to be a knock down drag out I think," Knights Head Coach Jeff Robbins said.

    The Hawks are also looking to get a win against Robbins, who is 4-0 against LaRue County while serving as head coach for the Knights.
