  • Lady Knights can't stop...

    The Marion County High School girls' basketball team took an early season loss against highly touted Christian Academy of Louisville (CAL) (3-0) on Saturday night at Central Hardin High School.

    The Lady Knights trailed the entire game but pulled within four with about two minutes to play in the third at 32-28.

    Two quick fouls on Andrea King shifted the momentum back to CAL. They would never get any closer, with Christian Academy's defense holding them to four points in the fourth quarter and only 11 points in the second half.

  • Lady Knights open district play...

    The Marion County High School girls' basketball team faced region foe Adair County (1-1) on Tuesday night on the road.

    Lady Knights Head Coach Trent Milby said that the Lady Indians were a young team like Marion County.

    "They've got some decent size," he said. "We expect zone defense from them. We'll have to get after them and use the press to our advantage. If we get some easy baskets it seems to get us going."

    The Lady Indians beat region opponent John Hardin (0-3) 71-54 and lost to region contender Green County (2-0) 66-48.

  • JV and Freshmen Knights open...

    The Marion County junior varsity and freshmen Knights boys' basketball teams opened their seasons last week.

    The junior varsity Knights lost their opener to Waggener at the Roby Dome on Saturday. The Wildcats outlasted the Knights 36-28. Chuck Elder led the way for Knights with nine points. Kendrick Knopp and Dalton Mills chipped in six points apiece. Marquis Douglas and Brian Loper added two points apiece. Valis Mudd had three points.

    The freshmen Knights opened their season with two games on Saturday at the Roby Dome.

  • Knights fall 94-82 in season...

     Down 61-42 late in the third, it looked all but over for the Knights. 

    But with less than five minutes remaining in the fourth and the Knights trying to mount a comeback, the momentum swung. A technical foul on Waggener's Dayvon Sloan caused the senior to foul out of the game and leave the depleted team vulnerable. 

  • Lady Knights can't handle...

     The Lady Knights never led the bigger and taller Christian Academy team but they cut the lead to four late in the third quarter. The young Lady Knights would never get closer. 

    Christian Academy is a top 25 team in the state and features junior Nita Slaughter, who is one of the state's top juniors. Slaughter has already signed to play at the University of Louisville.
