  • Lady Knights underestimate Tates...

             The young Lady Knights (4-2) brought their “C” game when they showed up to play on the second day of the Lady Admirals Tournament in Danville on Saturday.

  • Lady Knights outlast Lady Titans

    The Marion County High School Lady Knights opened with a slow start but used a big second and third quarter to squash Mercer County High School in the first game of the Lady Admirals Tournament in Danville on Friday night. 

    Trailing 8-6 after one quarter, the Lady Knights turned up the intensity and the pressure. They led 30-21 at half time,  after a 24-point second quarter. 

  • Knights fall to East Jessamine

    The Marion County Knights boys' basketball team likes a challenge.

    In two of their three losses, the Knights have opened up with slow starts and raced back in the second half to make the game interesting. Both times they fell short.

    Their game Saturday against East Jessamine in the Four Bank Classic at Garrard County High School proved no different.

    "They (East Jessamine) came out hot and we didn't defend it well. We haven't had a good first half yet," Knights Head Coach Tim Peterson said.

    Down by only two at half time, the Knights collapsed in the fourth quarter and lost 78-60. 

  • Knights run out of chances

     

    The Marion County Knights missed shot after shot in the paint on their way to a 67-61 loss against a beatable Frankfort High School team. 

    The Knights shot horrendously from the floor but remained within reach the entire game. 

  • George returns to the sidelines

    Dennis George is no stranger to the sidelines. He began his coaching career as a sophomore in high school with the St. Augustine Cardinals basketball team. He continued on for several years there, ending his tenure there around the same time as former Marion County High School athletes Patrick Campbell and Matthew Thomas were finishing up at St. A.

  • Tis the season for tournaments

    The Knights and Lady Knights travel to tournaments over the weekend, facing a bevy of opponents.

    Both teams started their week against Green County in a double header at the Roby Dome. Results were not known at press time but can be found at www.lebanonenterprise.com.

  • Lady Knights go 2-0 for the week

    The Marion County High School Lady Knights basketball team wasted no time against the Washington County Lady Commanders on Friday night during their home opener at the Roby Dome.

    Washington County came within one point at 5-4 with 3:35 to play in the first quarter but they would never threaten the Lady Knights lead again. The quick and feisty Lady Knights spent the next four minutes going on a 14-0 run to put them up 19-4 early in the second quarter. The Lady Knights never let off the gas after that, extending the lead to 19 points at halftime.
