  • Total domination

    It's the midway point through the season and the Marion County Lady Knights basketball team is still looking for an opponent that can beat them.

    Undefeated at 15-0, the Lady Knights look unstoppable.

    "I thought maybe we'd have lost one or maybe two," Lady Knights Head Coach Trent Milby said. "I think if we stay healthy and focused there's a good possibility that we'll run the table. We played all these tough teams back-to-back."

  • Lady Knights prepare for Drake...

    There is no love lost in the Marion County and Nelson County lady hoops rivalry.

    "Pretty much they don't like us and we don't like them," Lady Knights Head Coach Trent Milby said about the rivalry.

    Since Nelson County star senior Samantha Drake was a freshman, the Cards and the Lady Knights have played seven times. Marion County has won four of those games - two at home, one at Nelson County and one on a neutral site.

    Drake and her supporting cast look to even up the series on Friday night at Nelson County High School.

    The Knights face Nelson County at Nelson on Friday at 6 p.m.

    Despite consecutive tough losses, the Knights can't be disappointed.
