    Tip off is set for 5:30 p.m. when the Lady Knights visit Hart County (13-7) on Monday.

    "They'll run up and down," Lady Knights Head Coach Trent Milby said. "They're not as fast as we are but they can shoot the basketball. That's where the region tournament is at and we want to get a good feeling for the gym. We hope to play well, it's always a tough place to play."

    It was a day of firsts, including ice fishing in reverse?

    "I've ice-fished taking 'em out, but I've never ice-fished putting 'em in," cracked Raymond Atchison, a veteran Department of Fish and Wildlife employee.

    Atchison and his partner, Josh Mangan, were on their maiden fish-stocking effort of 2010. It was one week ago.

  • Carrico makes history

    Excellence in multiple sports would have left a legacy behind for Tommy Carrico. He just sealed the deal when he inked a golf scholarship with Morehead State University recently.

    Carrico is the first Marion County High School golfer to receive a scholarship from a Division I school directly out of high school, according to boy's golf Head Coach Freddie Leathers. Beverly Brockman received a Division I scholarship but she was one year removed from Marion County when she did so.
