  • Soccer team takes bronze

    The Marion County High School boys' soccer team took home a bronze medal at the Bluegrass State Games on Sunday against Villa Madonna after a penalty kick showdown.

    The performance equals the best the Knights have done under Head Coach Greg Conley.

    "This particular team is so young that it makes it special. Not to mention surviving the heat this weekend," Conley said.

    Conley sent his team home on Saturday after a 5-0 loss to Collins. He waited around to see if the Knights would make it to the medal round, not expecting them to advance.
