Today's Sports

  • A strong finish

    Well, we rang in the New Year Sunday, and it's now 2012, which I have a hard time writing. It always takes me a little while to get used to the fact.  

    But the point of my column this week is not to talk about sports in the new year, well not yet anyway. What I want to discuss is the strong finish to the old year of 2011 that both the basketball teams and an individual athlete had last week.

  • Knights finish third in...

    In their second tournament over the holiday season, the Knights of Marion County took part in the Citizens Bank/Campbellsville University Holiday Classic. The team would play three games over three days, and pick up wins in two of those games. The Knights picked up a win in their final game, which gave them third place in the tournament.

  • Lady Knights take title in Titan...

    In their second holiday tournament of 2011, the Lady Knights of Marion County worked their way through several tough teams to take home the title in the Mercer County/Harrodsburg Tourism Titan Christmas Clash. In the four games of the tournament, the Lady Knights won by a combined 105 points with no game being closer than 14 points.

  • Record breaker

    Marion County High School junior Makayla Epps recently became the all-time leading scorer in school history.

  • St. Catharine teams start New...

    An appropriate Christmas gift for the St. Catharine College basketball programs would have been a credit card for gasoline purchases. Both Patriot teams could put that to good use as they open the new year with three consecutive Mid-South Conference road games.

    Play begins Thursday with the Patriots visiting UVA-Wise. They follow that with Saturday's game at Pikeville and continue their road trip Jan. 14 at Campbellsville. The first home game of the new year is Jan. 19 against Cumberlands.

  • Knights pick up 10th win

         The Marion County Knights claimed a victory over Monroe County, 74-63, in the third place game at the Citizens Bank/Campbellsville University Holiday Classic.  The win pushes the Knights record to 10-5 on the season.  After a few days off, the Knights will be back in action for the first home game since December 6th, when they host Boyle County January 10th.
