  • Girls coaching staff resigns

    Last week, Lady Knight Softball Head Coach Trent Milby, Assistant Coach Anthony Epps, and Assistant Coach Renee Spalding all turned in letters of resignation to Marion County High School Athletic Director Stacey Hall. All three letters stated that the resignations will become effective after this season is completed, not immediately as initially reported. The site-based decision making council will review these letters during their regular scheduled meeting today, April 27.
    Hall noted that each of the three coaches had other things they wanted to focus on.

  • Team has another strong showing

    Thursday afternoon, the Marion County High School track team hosted an all-comers track meet. Each team finished overall in the top three, with the boys team taking second place only behind Boyle County by seven points while the girls captured third place behind Russell County and Boyle County as well. Both teams performed very well with the girls team collecting nine top three finishes and the boys taking a spot in the top three 13 times.

  • Lady Knights have 3-1 week

    The Marion County Lady Knights softball team was able to get in four games last week, taking away three wins. Marion County played three district games, winning two out of three of those, taking their district standings to 2-1.
    “We are still in good shape as far as the No. 1 seed for the district goes,” Head Coach Trent Milby said. “We just need to win out at home in district games, and we should be in good shape for the No. 1 seed.”
    The Lady Knights overall record now stands at 9-5 after last week’s action.

  • Knights pick up first district...

    Tuesday of last week, the Marion County Knights baseball team traveled to Campbellsville to take on the Taylor County Cardinals. The Knights would jump out to an early 2-1 lead after the opening inning, but weren’t able to muster much offense after that.
    The Cardinals would score four runs in the second inning and five in the third inning to break the game open, and cruise to a 14-5 victory. The loss, the fourth in a row for the Knights, dropped their record to 5-7 overall and 0-3 in the district race.
