  • Knights nab one of three

    After a week of regular season play in the books, Marion County stands with a win and two losses. The Knights saw moments of mastery as well as fleeting follies during their first three games.

    One bright spot for the young Knights is sophomore Eric Farmer, who cranked two home runs in the first two games of the season. He finished the week going four for six at the plate and accounting for eight runs.

    "Tyler Wright brings a presence. He's a kid that has been around many parks and many games," Spalding said.

    Tuesday of last week, the process began to fill the biggest football uniforms Marion County has seen in recent history.

  • Overwhelmed

    The state's hottest team was doused early and often in the first round of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association girls' state tournament Wednesday.

    Marion County, ranked No. 1 nearly all season and the tournament favorite heading into state, was pressured into uncharacteristic mistakes as Mercy Academy rolled 67-51 in their first game en route to a state championship.
