  • Knights slide into district play

    The Marion County High School baseball team stumbled last week, coming up short in both outings.

    DuPont Manual, a late addition to the Knights schedule, rocked the locals 15-3 on Tuesday of last week in Louisville. 

    "We were winning 3-0 after the second inning. It looked like we were going to play some baseball but then the wheels came completely off," Head Coach Chad Spalding said.

  • Celtics earn trip down south

    The Marion County Lady Celtics have taken the state by storm.   If you don't know who they are, you soon will.

    They are the Marion County girls nine and under AAU basketball team that now boasts a state championship to go with their 21-1 record. The Lady Celtics have been invited to compete for the national championship in Monroe, La., from June 26 through July 1. 

    Donna Bradshaw and Jimmy Wiser were the forces behind getting the team together and Todd Mattingly was selected as the head coach in March.

  • Lancers open with a win

    The Cincinatti Stallions started hot but cooled off enough in the second half to allow the Lebanon Lancers their first win on opening night in franchise history.

    "We've got a long way to go but we'll get it done," Head Coach Mark Bell said. "We've got to give them (Stallions) credit, they came to play."

  • Round ball Knights honored at...

    Several members of the Marion County High School boys basketball team were honored recently at the post-season banquet, including senior Christopher Southall who took home season MVP honors.

  • Washington County unveils '...

    In a solid week for the Marion County High School boys tennis team, weather and a surprise addition to the Washington County roster made for a colorful start to the season.

    Washington County added two previously home schooled players to their roster, putting them to work for the first time against Marion County.

  • Lady Knights control the court

    The Marion County High School girls tennis team wrapped up a 4-2 record after two weeks of play. A match against Mercer County wasn't finished due to weather.

    "Everybody is at this point pretty much doing what I expected. We're still trying to get our seeding all the way through," Head Coach Angela Holt said. "We just now got to where there are no conflicts with band. They're pretty much where I figured where they would be. They're all very enthusiastic and having fun. They're working at it pretty hard."

  • Lancers open season April 11

    The Lebanon Lancers, central Kentucky's semi-pro basketball team, open the 2009 season at home against the Cincinnati Stallions, the KBDL's newest team, on April 11. Season tickets are now on sale for Lancers games.

  • Sluggers off to strong 4-2 start

    With a squad only boasting four seniors, Marion County High School baseball Head Coach Chad Spalding and crew are feeling good about being 4-2 after two weeks of play.

    "I'll take four wins with the weather conditions we've been having. If things went a little bit differently we're looking at possibly being 6-0," Spalding said.

    The Knights led late in both losses, with big innings upending them each time.

    A big inning helped push the Knights past a solid Washington County squad in a 3-2 win, which is something Spalding teaches his players.

  • First track meet cut short

    The Marion County High School track and field team wouldn't be able to complete their first meet of the season in Green County due to inclement weather.

    That wouldn't stop the Knights and Lady Knights from putting on a strong showing.

  • Softball team 4-4 heading into...

    Three wins last week helped end a three game opening skid and point the Marion County High School softball team in the right direction under new coach Trent Milby.

    "We're getting better. We won four of five this week," Milby said. "We're starting to hit the ball better. We lost some close games but then started hitting the ball better and playing good defense and that equals wins. We're working on changing their mentality to win every game instead of playing just for fun."
