  • JV Knights win second title in...


  • North Bullitt pounds Knights

    Size mattered on Thursday night in Shepherdsville.

    The North Bullitt Eagles (6-3) and their monstrous front line were too much

    for the Knights (5-4) in a 28-16 Knights loss at North Bullitt. The Eagles limited Marion County to only 11 offensive plays in the second half as they controlled the pace of the game. Only three of those plays were carries by a normally run heavy offense.

  • A long night for the Knights

    Green County handed Marion County its worst loss of the season Friday night in Greensburg as the Dragons beat Marion County, 42-21.

  • Knights air it out against LaRue


    Marion County flashed a new look against LaRue County Friday at John J. Boswell Field in Lebanon.

    Ryan Peterson threw for a career high 201 yards on nine of 15 passing and two touchdowns in the game of his life.

    Meanwhile, the Hawks went a third consecutive game without a rushing touchdown and turned the ball over three times in Marion County's 55-6 win.

  • Danville eliminates Knights


    The young Knights didn't have enough firepower to keep up with powerhouse Danville on Thursday, bowing out 6-1 at Rebel Stadium in Danville during the second round of the district tournament.

    "I knew going in it was a tall order," Head Coach Greg Conley said. "Danville is ranked 12th in state and should be higher I think. They move the ball well and the turf (at Rebel Stadium) exposes our lack of speed."

  • Lady Knights clinch three-peat


    The Marion County High School volleyball team made program history Tuesday night of last week by winning an unprecedented third consecutive district championship.

    The Knights knocked off Taylor County 2-0 (25-19, 26-24) for the third straight year. The teams have played in the district championship in the last years, ever since they joined the same district.

  • Boyle bounces Lady Knights


    Boyle County was too much for the Marion County High School girls' soccer team to handle Tuesday of last week at Garrard County.

    The Lady Rebels knocked off the Lady Knights 8-0 in the second round of the district tournament.

    The Lady Knights opened the tournament with a 2-0 win over Taylor County on Monday of last week.

    Marion County finishes the season with a 4-13-4 record.

    Lady Knights Head Coach Hart Hagan could not be reached for comment Sunday night via phone or Monday morning via email.

  • Final district showdown


    The district landscape is starting to take shape but the final design won't be complete until this week.

    North Bullitt beat Bullitt East last week 18-6 to put the Chargers in a position for elimination.

    Marion County is now in a position where they are automatically in the playoffs but they can feasibly finish first, third or fourth.

    "We control our destiny," Head Coach Jeff Robbins said. "If we win against North Bullitt we're the No. 1 seed."

  • The Bourbon Chase relay passes...


    Runners from across the country will pass through Lebanon for legs 6, 7, 8 and 9 of The Bourbon Chase Friday, Oct. 22. This 200-mile overnight adventure features 3,000 participants from 44 states and covers scenic roads along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail through Saturday, Oct. 23.

    Just seven miles from world-famous Maker's Mark Distillery and home to Kentucky Cooperage, Lebanon is nestled in the Heart of Bourbon Country, making it one of the most significant stops on the Chase.

  • Brown has strong showing at state

    Marion County junior Amy Brown made a marked improvement from last year's round at the state tournament. Next year she hopes to make an even bigger stride.

    "This was Amy's second trip to the Bowling Green course after playing along with the team last year as regional runner-ups," Knight golf coach Freddie Leathers said. "Amy's goal is to reach the top tier in 2011."

    Brown finished with a 95 Tuesday of last week at Bowling Green Country Club. Last year, she shot a 107 at the same course.
