    Makayla Epps saved the Lady Patriots unblemished record with a lay up with two seconds remaining to tie the game at 30. Once in overtime, the Lady Pats controlled the game.

    The Lady Knights will bring back much young talent this year from their district champion team last season.

    The Lady Knights faced a young Bethlehem team that includes five freshmen and no seniors. The Lady Banshees finished 10-16 last season and bowed out in the first round of the 19th District tournament against Nelson County.

  • Lady Knights speed past Banshees

    The Marion County Lady Knights could have gone scoreless after half time and still won by 13 over the young Bethlehem High School Banshees. 

    The Lady Knights jumped out of the gates like rabid dogs, attacking with pressure defense and speed, in their 72-34 win over Bethlehem on Tuesday night in the season opener. 

    Bre Elder led the Lady Knights with 22 points. Makayla Epps added 14 and Kyvin Goodin-Rogers chipped in 11. Dee Johnson led the defense with 12 steals.

    The Knights had more than 20 turnovers in a scrimmage against Bullitt East High School the week before.

  • Knights prepare for Bullitt East...

    Impressive as their season has been, the Knights have not found Bullitt County to be friendly terrain.

    The Knights' first loss of the season came in Mount Washington at the hands of a Bullitt East Chargers team that was 1-3 going into the game. Their second loss came to North Bullitt a few weeks later.

    The 13-10 loss to the Chargers was within the Knights' reach, as they turned the ball over three times in the red zone in four trips. A questionable fourth down call didn't help the Knights' cause either.
