  • Lebanon Middle heads to national...

  • Lady Knights limp out of...

    The Marion County High School Lady Knights softball team (13-14) went into last week with the ability to control their own destiny and win their way out to gain the number one seed in the upcoming 20th District tournament.

    Instead, they lost back-to-back games to teams they had previously beaten to fall all the way to a number three seed in the tournament.

    "We weren't mentally ready to play in either game," Lady Knights Head Coach Trent Milby said.

  • The "Unpredictables"...

    The Marion County High School baseball team earned the moniker "The

    Unpredictables" after a strong yet surprising finish in regular season district play.

    Stocked with young players, the Knights (10-9) showed their range of unpredictability by getting blown out at home by a team they previously competed well with, blowing out a team that squeezed by in their previous meeting and avenging a home loss by winning at a place they rarely win at.

  • Knights flex muscles in HAC

    Cyrus Moslemi strikes again. Moslemi, who was unveiled by Washington County in their regular season match against Marion County, destroyed the Heartland Athletic Conference tournament competition last week to claim the singles crown.

    Moslemi beat three opponents in two straight sets, winning 6-0 each time. No player in the field was able to put a game on Moslemi.

    Moslemi took out Jordan Culver in the second round and Joseph George in the final round en route to victory. He is likely the number one seed heading into the region tournament.

  • Track team fine-tunes before HAC

    The Marion County High School track team had a good showing during the Bardstown All-Comers meet last Thursday while getting ready to host the Heartland Athletic Conference (HAC) meet on Tuesday.

    MCHS hosted the HAC meet on Tuesday starting at 5:30. Results from the meet can be found at www.lebanonenterprise.com.

    MCHS will also host the region track meet on May 16. The events kick off at 11 a.m. and will conclude sometime around 4 p.m.

  • Simmons claims singles crown

    Leanna Begley may have lost but it was still a dream come true.

    Begley faced teammate Kameron Simmons in the singles final of the Heartland Athletic Conference tournament last week in a match up they've both dreamed of.

    "Kameron told me that when she and Leanna were young tennis players they used to dream that one day they would be playing in the finals of the conference tournament. This year their dream came true. I'm extremely proud of them," Lady Knights Head Coach Angela Holt said.

  • Knights upset Campbellsville

    The Marion County High School baseball team kept themselves in the mix for a good seed in the 20th District tournament by beating Campbellsville and Adair County last week.

    Campbellsville had previously beaten the Knights 8-2 at Hourigan Field but Eric Miles pitched a gem from the mound and turned it around for Marion County.

    "That was an unbelievable game for us. The kids really performed well and executed. Eric Miles was fantastic on the mound," Knights Head Coach Chad Spalding said.

  • Lancers gun down Tankers

    The Lebanon Lancers took out the Harrodsburg Tankers, a first year team in the Kentucky Basketball Development League, by a score of 104-85 at the Roby Dome on Friday night.

    Head Coach Mark Bell said Elton Scott was a leader by example.

    "It was probably his best game since he started this year," he said. "Once we put two whole halves together we'll be all right."

    The Lancers trounced the first year team that is playing without a coach right now.

  • Track team competes in three...

    Marion County High School track coach Robby Peterson is excited after a flurry of meets in the last two weeks.

    "Everybody's times have gotten lower and better. We're improving, which is good," he said. "We're making a good push, getting ready for the region."

    MCHS will host the region track meet on May 16. The events kick off at 11 a.m. and will conclude sometime around 4 p.m.

    On Friday the boys squad finished seventh out of 12 squads in the Green County Invitational with 43 points. Daviess County won the meet with 125 points.

  • Knights test their mettle at KOB

    The Marion County High School boys tennis team tested themselves against some of the state's toughest competition last weekend at the 209 Forcht Bank King of the Bluegrass Tennis Team Championships held at the Bass-Rudd Tennis Complex at the University of Louisville.

    "This was an exciting event for the team to participate in because of the caliber level of tennis play we knew we would face," Head Coach Beverly Thomas said.

    The second round of play had MCHS teamed with Highlands.
