  • Lady's lose Reynolds

    The end of a tough week for the Marion County High School softball team was only made worse by the loss of Ann Morgan Reynolds.

    "We lost 14-4 but more than that we lost a steady defensive player and one of the better hitters during the game," Lady Knights Head Coach Trent Milby said. "Ann Morgan Reynolds will be out the rest of the season with a broken ankle. It really hurts us as a team as she was very vital both offensively and more importantly defensively. We have to regroup and continue to improve."

    Siakam played for last year's squad but has been busy getting married and trying out for other squads recently.
