    Russell County entered the game as the Fourth Region's best team and the reigning region champion.

    "In actuality, you never want to say any loss is a good loss. But this loss if you told me before the day started that would have fought like we did I would have said that's not too bad of a loss," Knights Head Coach Chad Spalding said.

  • Lady Knights prep for district

    The Marion County High School softball team improved to 18-12 on the season after winning two games and dropping four last week.

    The Lady Knights set their sights on Adair County for Monday's first round 20th District game at Campbellsville. First pitch is set for 7:30 p.m.

    "We have split two games this year with them. It should be a very good game," Lady Knights Head Coach Trent Milby said. "We can't make mistakes and we must put the ball in play to beat them. They have a very good pitcher but so do we. It should be a very interesting game."

  • Spalding and company are staying

    After resigning last week, Marion County High School Baseball Head Coach Chad Spalding has rescinded his resignation and will continue to coach next season.

    Spalding and assistant coaches Marc Brock and Will Knight handed in their resignations on Monday of last week.

    On Tuesday of last week at the school board meeting, the minutes were recorded that the contracts of those coaches were not renewed, implying that they were fired.

  • Knights hit a hot streak

    Despite a tumultuous two weeks off the field, the Marion County High School baseball team won three of four games against region competition last week during a home stand at Hourigan Field. The Knights improved their record to 15-12 overall.

    Junior Paul Spalding had a hot bat again last week as he hit two home runs in four games, both in the bottom of the sixth to change the outcome of the game.

    The Knights also bid farewell to the team's lone senior, Joseph Lewis, on Saturday during Senior Day festivities.
