  • 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.

  • Lady Knights prepare for KIT

    The Marion County High School girls' golf team recorded something rare in high school golf last week. They tied with Adair County during a match and due to impending darkness, decided against a playoff.

    The Lady Knights played Adair to a 188-188 tie at Rosewood Golf Course on Tuesday of last week.

    Hayley Abell tied for the low round with a 43. Adair's Ashley Goodin also shot a 43.

    Amy Brown shot a 45 to beat out Adair County's Abby Royse who had a 47.

  • Knights fall to LaRue

    The Marion County High School volleyball team lost to LaRue County on Thursday to move their season record to one win and two losses.

    LaRue (5-0) beat the Knights in two sets (25-18, 25-21) at LaRue.

    "I was very disappointed with our lack of focus tonight," Head Coach David Hibbard said in his match report. "We knew LaRue had a strong corps of servers and that if we could handle their serves we would have a chance to win. Even knowing that up front, we did not come ready to play."

  • Cox wins inaugural Rosewood...

    History was made at Rosewood Golf Course on Sunday as Brad Cox won the inaugural Rosewood Regatta match play tournament.

    Thirty-two golfers teed off in eight flights for the first ever tournament. Three of the four golfers in each flight won a prize.

    Cox beat Chad Borders in the final round of the championship flight. Borders struggled early, a sign of how the day would go.

    Cox knocked off Jamie Abell on Saturday to advance to the championship match.

  • Tournament draws players from...

    Players from all over the state hit the courts in Lebanon for the Farmer's National Bank Heart of Kentucky Lebanon Open on Aug. 21-22.

    Jacob Burdette and Noah Swencki won the boys' 18 and under doubles bracket, beating Hunter Pierce and Trent Rodgers from Liberty and Dunville, 6-2, 6-1 in the championship.

    Swencki and Burdette finished runner-up in the men's open doubles, losing 6-2, 6-0 to Larry Milby from Campbellsville and Tim Perkins from Columbia in the final.

  • Knights full of surprises

    The Marion County High School boys' golf team strung together a week of ups and downs, mostly ups, to improve to 7-2 in match play.

    The Knights finished their week with a solid showing at the Garrard County Invitational at Dix River Golf Course on Saturday.

    Marion County finished in the top ten with a team score of 320 in a field of over 20 teams. Boyle County won the tournament with a 301. Corbin finished second with a 302 while Scott County finished third with a 305.

  • Lady Knights open with tough test

    The Knights wanted to find out what kind of team they were. Turns out they're pretty tough.

    The Marion County High School volleyball team opened their season Thursday against region contender Nelson County at the Roby Dome.

    Though they lost 2-1 (21-25, 25-22, 22-25) they showed grit in the second set.

  • Football kicks off Aug. 28

    Kentucky high school football begins Friday but as customary under Jeff Robbins, Marion County will take the opening week off to scout.

    The Knights graduated a senior class that had the most wins in program history, ending with a loss to eventual state runner-up Lone Oak in the state semifinals.

    The cupboard is by no means bare, with several key performers from last year's squad returning.

    As always under Robbins, the team's strengths will rely on running by committee.
