  • Boys' golf misses a chance

    The Marion County High School boys' golf team missed a chance when they lost to one of the region's top teams in Boyle County on Thursday at Rosewood.

    "I was disappointed because we had a golden opportunity to upset a Boyle County team that has won two tournaments this year and is considered the second best team in the region," Knights Head Coach Freddie Leathers said. "Both teams struggled tonight and it seemed that both teams were looking forward more to the long weekend than the match."

  • Lady Knights get revenge

    The Marion County High School girls' golf team avenged the blemishes on their match play record this season by offing Taylor County and Adair County on Thursday at Pinewood Country Club in Columbia.

    The Lady Knights previously lost to Taylor County and tied with Adair, thus ruining their perfect match play record.

    Hayley Abell shot an astounding 37 to lead both teams. Amy Brown shot a 42 while Olivia Carrico shot a 44. Taylor Howard finished with a 56 while Brianna Reynolds left with a 67.

  • Lady Knights net first win

    Marion County High School's girls' soccer program netted their first win of the season on Sunday, beating North Laurel 2-2 during a penalty kick shoot out at Elmer J. George Field.

    Sophomore Claire Hagan was a wall in the net, keeping North Laurel out of the goal in the second half and coming up big during penalty kicks.

    "I told her before the shoot out started, 'This is where you make a name for yourself,'" Lady Knights Head Coach Hart Hagan said. "Any nerves she had she put them aside. It just shows how strong her instincts are."

  • Knights fall to John Hardin in...

    For three quarters, it looked as though the smaller, slower Knights could pull an upset over the second best team in Class 5A.

    Athleticism and size prevailed in the fourth however, as John Hardin High School used big plays to put the Knights away at John J. Boswell Field on Saturday night during the Heart of Kentucky Pigskin Classic.

    The Knights nearly took a big hit for the rest of the season, however, when junior quarterback Ryan Peterson went down on the last play of the first half with an apparent rib injury.

  • JV golfers step up

    The Marion County High School boys' golf team showcased new talent on the varsity squad on Saturday during the Tates Creek Invitational as the Knights shot a team score of 333.

    Aaron Hamilton, Logan Medley and Korey Hundley hit the links for the Knights in the tournament as the team was without number three and four golfers Brian Loper and Blair Gorley.

  • Knights set to tangle with...

    The Marion County High School football team will test its pass defense on Friday night when Collins High School comes to town.

    The pass happy team puts a lot of points on the board, averaging 48.5 points per game in their first two games in existence.

    "They run a spread offense with (senior) Branden Cresap at quarterback. Everybody is touting him as a possible Mr. Kentucky. He's the real deal," Knights Head Coach Jeff Robbins said.

    Cresap has a big target in 6-4 receiver Ben Axline and a solid front line.

  • Two Lady Knights'...

    Marion County High School has two players that are getting the attention of the Kentucky Volleyball Coaches Association (KVCA) and possibly college scouts.

    Seniors Shelby Mattingly and Shakyra Young are on the KVCA list, which was started last season. Last season, Marion County's Shelby Howard was on the list.

  • Lady Knights suffer first loss

    The Marion County High School girls' golf team suffered a rare defeat, falling to Taylor County at Campbellsville Country Club Tuesday of last week. The loss was their first of the season in match play.

    The Lady Knights shot an overall score of 192 while Taylor left with a 175. Campbellsville came in third with a 266.

    Olivia Carrico led the way with a 44 while Hayley Abell shot a 45. Amy Brown finished with a 48 while Taylor Howard had a 55. Brianna Reynolds shot a 56.

  • Fans boost soccer Knights

    The 12th man proved to be critical for the Marion County High School boys' soccer team Tuesday of last week in their 2-1 home win over Pulaski County.

    "The crowd had a lot to do with raising the energy of the team. They had a lot to do with the win," Head Coach Greg Conley said. "Up 2-0, the last several minutes of the game we ran out of gas. They pushed us the rest of the way through. It's also the first time we've played together as a group."
