  • Knights face pivotal week

    If things go well this week for the Marion County Knights, the results could affect tournament seeding down the road.

    The Marion County High School boy's basketball team faces two district opponents this week and needs to win both games in order to ensure the best possible seed for the end of season 20th District tournament.

    On Friday at 6:30 p.m. the Knights (9-5) play host to Campbellsville (11-2) for their second and most important game of the season.

  • Lady Knights look to extend...

    Marion County is 25-1 in district play since the start of the 2006-07 season. They would have been 26-0 had they not dropped a 64-59 overtime thriller against Adair County at the Roby Dome on Jan. 23, 2007.

  • Inside the Mind of Trent Milby

    Trent Milby is the head coach for the MCHS girls basketball team. His record at Marion County is 90-22.

    Briefly go through your background as a player.

    I played four years at Green County High School. I played the guard spot, mostly at the two and three position. I was primarily a spot up shooter. My senior year (1993) we went 25-7. Too bad we played when Marion County was loaded. The 1993 team has the most wins in school history.

  • Total domination

    It's the midway point through the season and the Marion County Lady Knights basketball team is still looking for an opponent that can beat them.

    Undefeated at 15-0, the Lady Knights look unstoppable.

    "I thought maybe we'd have lost one or maybe two," Lady Knights Head Coach Trent Milby said. "I think if we stay healthy and focused there's a good possibility that we'll run the table. We played all these tough teams back-to-back."

  • Lady Knights prepare for Drake...

    There is no love lost in the Marion County and Nelson County lady hoops rivalry.

    "Pretty much they don't like us and we don't like them," Lady Knights Head Coach Trent Milby said about the rivalry.

    Since Nelson County star senior Samantha Drake was a freshman, the Cards and the Lady Knights have played seven times. Marion County has won four of those games - two at home, one at Nelson County and one on a neutral site.

    Drake and her supporting cast look to even up the series on Friday night at Nelson County High School.

  • Small Knights face physical task

    These small, quick Knights face a big task this week with carbon copy opponents coming up.

    Nelson County (6-5) and Boyle County (8-3) are big, bruising teams that play an opposite style of the Knights.

    The Knights face Nelson County at Nelson on Friday at 6 p.m.

  • Knights continue solid start

    Despite consecutive tough losses, the Knights can't be disappointed.

    The Knights have already improved upon last season's 8-22 season and have jumped out to a 9-5 record. After losing one of their top three players in Chuck Elder for the season, preseason predictions looked bleak for the Knights.
