  • 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.

  • Crazy week in girl's golf

    Olivia Carrico led the Lady Knights with a 40 while Hayley Abell shot a 44. Amy Brown shot a 47 while Taylor Howard had a 54. Brianna Reynolds finished out the team's performance with a 55.

    From there, the week went downhill for the Lady Knights.

  • Knights have an up and down week

    The Marion County High School boys' golf team struggled to start the season but showed steady improvement after the first week of play.

    "We graduated two excellent golfers. We've got three kids to build on," Head Coach Freddie Leathers said. "We're trying to rebuild."

    The Knights competed in two tournaments last week, faring 20 strokes better as a team in the second tournament.

  • Boys' soccer looks to their...

    After graduating seven seniors from last year's 9-8-4 team, Boys' Soccer Head Coach Greg Conley will have to rely on youth this season.

    "We're so young and inexperienced and small physically. Our goal in the regular season is to gain experience," Conley said. "I'm not as concerned with wins and losses during the season if we're ready for the postseason."

  • Girls' golf off to fast...

    The Marion County High School girls' golf team started their campaign for a region title off on the right note last week, getting two wins in match play.

    On Thursday, the Lady Knights scored possibly their lowest team round in the last three seasons when they easily beat Casey County 174 to 210.

    "I think we've been as low as 178 and 179 but never down to a 174," Head Coach Danny McFall said. "I think for us just starting our season we've played very, very well."
