  • Knights improve in match play

    The Marion County High School boys' golf team improved to 4-0 in match play after a week of improvement.

    On Monday of last week, the Knights played host to Adair County, Campbellsville and Bardstown in a quad match at Rosewood.

    The Knights shot a season low 158 to beat Adair (163), Bardstown (165) and Campbellsville (174).

  • Fifth Annual Farmers National...

    The Fifth Annual Farmers National Bank Heart of Kentucky Tennis Open is Aug. 21-22 at Graham Memorial Park in Lebanon. The tournament is part of the Central Kentucky Tennis Series ("CKTS"). Although CKTS members are competing for points, anyone can enter the tournament.  

  • Raikes is crowned club champ

    After starting the day two strokes behind, T.J. Raikes shot a 71 on Sunday to beat Curt Manning by two strokes in the championship flight of the Lebanon Country Club club championship.

    Raikes shot 70 and 71 for a total of 141 to claim the club championship. Manning was close behind, shooting 68 and 75 for a 143.

    Defending champion Tommy Carrico took third place, shooting 72 and 74 for an overall 146.

    Adam Milby (71, 76) and Matthew Gribbins (73, 74) were close behind in fourth place with 147's.

  • Hagan heads up girls' soccer

    Bardstown native Hart Hagan will take the reins as the Marion County High School girls' soccer head coach this season.

    Hagan inherits a team that finished last season with five wins and 10 losses and a second round exit in the 29th District tournament.

    He replaces Neil Payne, who recently accepted a teaching and head coaching position at Montgomery County High School.

  • Knights have an up and down week

    The Marion County High School boys' golf team struggled to start the season but showed steady improvement after the first week of play.

    "We graduated two excellent golfers. We've got three kids to build on," Head Coach Freddie Leathers said. "We're trying to rebuild."

    The Knights competed in two tournaments last week, faring 20 strokes better as a team in the second tournament.

  • Boys' soccer looks to their...

    After graduating seven seniors from last year's 9-8-4 team, Boys' Soccer Head Coach Greg Conley will have to rely on youth this season.

    "We're so young and inexperienced and small physically. Our goal in the regular season is to gain experience," Conley said. "I'm not as concerned with wins and losses during the season if we're ready for the postseason."

  • Girls' golf off to fast...

    The Marion County High School girls' golf team started their campaign for a region title off on the right note last week, getting two wins in match play.

    On Thursday, the Lady Knights scored possibly their lowest team round in the last three seasons when they easily beat Casey County 174 to 210.

    "I think we've been as low as 178 and 179 but never down to a 174," Head Coach Danny McFall said. "I think for us just starting our season we've played very, very well."

  • Girls' soccer takes on a...

    Marion County High School's girls' soccer team will look a little different this year but the core remains unchanged.

    For starters, former Head Coach Neil Payne has moved on to a job in Montgomery County. Last year's assistant coach Hart Hagan has been given the keys to the program. He added MCHS alum Ashley Ballard to the coaching staff.

    Secondly, the Lady Knights will be without last season's darling, Makayla Epps.

  • Boys golf team tees off

    After looking like a region contender last season, the Marion County High School boys golf team fell victim to tough conditions at the region to finish short of their goal of going to state. This year, they look to rebound.

    Gone are seniors Tommy Carrico and Joseph George, two of the top golfers from last year's squad. Three of the top five from last year remain, however, and look to lead the Knights this season.

    Brian Loper, Joseph Elder and Taylor Brady return to avenge last season.
