  • Washington County knocks off...

    Electricity and water don't mix well but the two combined Friday night at John J. Boswell Field for a defensive explosion.

    Emotions ran high as the rain poured from the sky during the first and second quarters of the rivalry game between Marion and Washington counties. Things would cool off but not by much.

    After all the fuss, three points would be all that separated the border rivals.

    Washington County beat the Knights 3-0, the only points of the game coming late in the third quarter.

  • Lady Knights fall in Pulaski...

    After steam rolling through much of their schedule, the Marion County High School volleyball team met with some formidable opponents over the weekend. The Knights fell to Rockcastle County 2-0 (25-23, 25-23) in the semi-finals.  "We ran out of gas against the Rock or we might have made the finals in this one," Head Coach David Hibbard said.

  • Lady Knights drop two

    The Marion County High School Lady Knights' volleyball team faced a tough week of region opponents last week and has the bruises to show.

    The Lady Knights dropped close matches to region foes Green County and Elizabethtown last week as they come close to finishing out the regular season.

    On Thursday at Green County, the Lady Knights lost a 2-1 (21-25, 25-20, 25-27) nail biter against Green County.

  • Franklin County crushes Knights

    The Marion County High School boys' soccer team took most of last week off to heal up for postseason play.

    Their lone game was a 5-0 loss to Franklin County under a harvest moon at Elmer J. George Field Thursday.

    According to Knights Head Coach Greg Conley, youth was on display once again.

    "It's a young team," he said. "We just can't put together 80 consistent minutes. We can play with anyone for a half."

    The Knights did hold Franklin County to only one goal in the first half. The second half didn't go as well.

  • Soccer Knights face heavy fire

    After reaching the .500 mark for the first time this season, the Marion County High School boys' soccer team faced two teams with a lot of fire power last week.  The Knights fell 9-1 to Western Hills on the road Saturday and 6-1 Thursday to Danville at home. They came from behind to beat Bardstown 5-2 Tuesday.  Western Hills proved to be too much for the Knights to handle. "They are one heck of a team. They are hands down best team we've played," Knights Head Coach Greg Conley said.

  • Elder has a hot week

    Marion County High School junior Joseph Elder ended a great week on the course Saturday after 22 holes at Rosewood Golf Course during the third annual Marion County Invitational. Elder finished 18 holes with a 72, tied with Boyle County's Dakota Jarman. It took four playoff holes for Jarman to finally catch a break on the ninth hole and birdie putt for the individual tournament title. "Both players had two putt pars on the first hole," Knights Head Coach Freddie Leathers said.

  • Commanders come to town

    Marion County High School looks to extend a four game winning streak against rival Washington County Friday at John J. Boswell Field. Washington County comes in hot, starting the season 4-0 after beating Lincoln County by a point last week.  Marion County is off to their best start since 2008 with a 3-1 record.  Both teams have played Taylor County. Marion County beat the Cardinals last week with a 49-0 show of force.

  • Lady Knights net a win

    The Marion County High School girls' soccer team came away with a win Saturday, breaking a scoreless and winless stretch.  Freshman Lindsey Browning netted her third goal of the season against Wayne County at Elmer J. George Field Saturday.  The win moves the Lady Knights record to 2-8-3. Browning's goal broke a four game stretch in which the Lady Knights struggled to find the back of the net.  "(Wayne County) didn't really press much offensively," Lady Knights Head Coach Hart Hagan said.

  • Knights stomp Cards

    Marion County left no doubt who was superior in their gridiron border battle with Taylor County High School Friday night at John J. Boswell Field. After accumulating nearly 500 yards of offense and playing with a running clock for nearly the entire second half, the Knights hit the showers early in their 49-0 win over Taylor County.  With this win the Knights are on a four game winning streak against the Cardinals. More impressively, they have held Taylor County scoreless in the last four contests.
