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

  • Boy's golf picks up the pace

    Electricity and water don't mix well but the two combined Friday night at John J. Boswell Field for a defensive explosion.

    Emotions ran high as the rain poured from the sky during the first and second quarters of the rivalry game between Marion and Washington counties. Things would cool off but not by much.

    After all the fuss, three points would be all that separated the border rivals.

    Washington County beat the Knights 3-0, the only points of the game coming late in the third quarter.

  • Lady Knights drop two

    The Marion County High School Lady Knights' volleyball team faced a tough week of region opponents last week and has the bruises to show.

  • Franklin County crushes Knights

    The Marion County High School boys' soccer team took most of last week off to heal up for postseason play.

    Their lone game was a 5-0 loss to Franklin County under a harvest moon at Elmer J. George Field Thursday.

    According to Knights Head Coach Greg Conley, youth was on display once again.

    "It's a young team," he said. "We just can't put together 80 consistent minutes. We can play with anyone for a half."

    The Knights did hold Franklin County to only one goal in the first half. The second half didn't go as well.
