  • Knights fall to John Hardin in...

    For three quarters, it looked as though the smaller, slower Knights could pull an upset over the second best team in Class 5A.

    Athleticism and size prevailed in the fourth however, as John Hardin High School used big plays to put the Knights away at John J. Boswell Field on Saturday night during the Heart of Kentucky Pigskin Classic.

    The Knights nearly took a big hit for the rest of the season, however, when junior quarterback Ryan Peterson went down on the last play of the first half with an apparent rib injury.

  • JV golfers step up

    The Marion County High School boys' golf team showcased new talent on the varsity squad on Saturday during the Tates Creek Invitational as the Knights shot a team score of 333.

    Aaron Hamilton, Logan Medley and Korey Hundley hit the links for the Knights in the tournament as the team was without number three and four golfers Brian Loper and Blair Gorley.

  • Knights set to tangle with...

    The Marion County High School football team will test its pass defense on Friday night when Collins High School comes to town.

    The pass happy team puts a lot of points on the board, averaging 48.5 points per game in their first two games in existence.

    "They run a spread offense with (senior) Branden Cresap at quarterback. Everybody is touting him as a possible Mr. Kentucky. He's the real deal," Knights Head Coach Jeff Robbins said.

    Cresap has a big target in 6-4 receiver Ben Axline and a solid front line.

  • Two Lady Knights'...

    Marion County High School has two players that are getting the attention of the Kentucky Volleyball Coaches Association (KVCA) and possibly college scouts.

    Seniors Shelby Mattingly and Shakyra Young are on the KVCA list, which was started last season. Last season, Marion County's Shelby Howard was on the list.

  • Lady Knights suffer first loss

    The Marion County High School girls' golf team suffered a rare defeat, falling to Taylor County at Campbellsville Country Club Tuesday of last week. The loss was their first of the season in match play.

    The Lady Knights shot an overall score of 192 while Taylor left with a 175. Campbellsville came in third with a 266.

    Olivia Carrico led the way with a 44 while Hayley Abell shot a 45. Amy Brown finished with a 48 while Taylor Howard had a 55. Brianna Reynolds shot a 56.

  • 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.
