  • 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.

  • Knights end season with a win

    The Marion County boys soccer team finished the season with an explosive win over Berea Tuesday of last week.

    The Knights won 5-2 at Berea to garner momentum for the upcoming 29th District tournament.

    "It was a 1-1 game at the half. I didn't think we were playing as aggressive as we should have. Then we erupted in the second half," Knights Head Coach Greg Conley said. "We had five good goals. We did everything offensively we need to do every game. Things went very well."

  • Chargers drop Knights in OT

    The Marion County Knights scored on their first play from scrimmage but couldn't find the end zone the rest of the game as Bullitt East shocked the Knights 14-7 in overtime Friday in Mount Washington.

    Buster Hazelwood scorched the Chargers on the first play from scrimmage of the game as he turned on the turbo and ran for 62-yards for a touchdown with 11:41 to play in the first quarter.

    The rest of the game was a see saw battle.

    The Chargers tied the game in the fourth quarter with 8:17 to play on a 23-yard touchdown pass to senior Wade Kelly.

  • Lady Knights enter post season...

    The Marion County girls' soccer team suffered a 6-0 loss to Bardstown Thursday to gear up for the district tournament.

    Bardstown is a powerhouse, something the Lady Knights will likely face if they advance past the first round of the district tournament.

  • Lady Knights cruise into district

    Marion County entered the district tournament last week with a two game winning streak and a near defeat of the top team in the region.

    The Knights crushed Washington County 2-0 (25-12, 25-13) in their last regular season game Thursday to finish the season 26-8.

  • Soccer Knights head into post...

    The Marion County Knights boy's soccer team wraps up the regular season this week against Berea on the road.

    The Knights celebrated senior night on Saturday against John Hardin despite a 4-0 loss to the Bulldogs.

    Seniors getting recognition were Ethan Drury, Abraham Guzman and Dylan Browning.

    The Knights offense couldn't get going in the cold, wet conditions at Elmer J. George Field. The Bulldogs built a 3-0 lead by halftime and cruised through the second half.

    On Thursday, the Knights played hosts to Meade County in a 2-1 win.

  • Knights fall at region

    The Marion County High School boys' golf team couldn't claim one of the two spots open for the state tournament but a few golfers nearly qualified on their own at Pinewood Golf Course in Columbia Tuesday of last week.

    The Knights shot a team score of 325 for a ninth place finish in the field of 19.

    West Jessamine, as expected, claimed the region title with a team score of 287. Adair County took advantage of their home course and finished second with a 299.

    Nate Johnson of West Jessamine claimed top individual honors, firing a 67.
