  • Little League stardom

    From its humble beginnings in a little Pennsylvania town in 1939, the Little League Baseball program has grown from a group of just three teams originally located in and near Williamsport, Pennsylvania to include nearly 200,000 teams, in all 50 U.S states and in more than 80 countries. 

  • GIRLS SOCCER: Marion County...

    Marion County lost more than its season opener against the Ft. Knox Lady Eagles on Aug. 16.
    Madi Hardin suffered a rolled ankle 20 minutes in and Katie Beth Brady suffered a minor injury also in the Lady Knights' 4-1 defeat to Fort Knox on Elmer J. George Soccer Field. Marion County Head Coach Daniel Johnson expects Hardin to be out for around two weeks though he said Brady was most likely going to be available for Marion County's next game today against John Hardin. 

  • GOLF: Knights take down Eagles,...

    The Marion County Knights traveled to the Campbellsville Country Club on Thursday to take on both the Campbellsville Eagles and the Washington County Commanders in a boys-only match, putting up a solid performance as the Knights defeated both teams. Marion County shot a 175, Campbellsville shot a 188 and Washington County shot a 189. 
    Ethan Spalding and Bryce Spalding both led the Knights with a 42. 

  • Vaught’s Views: High...

    Kentucky opens the football season Sept. 2 at Southern Mississippi with high expectations after a 7-6 season and bowl bid last year. The Wildcats have been picked as high as third in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division by some college football analysts.
    Kentucky coach Mark Stoops has said he expects the team to be better, and his players agree.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Knights open...

    David Hibbard said his team was a little nervous to start the season opener against Woodford County on Aug. 14. Those nerves didn't last long. Behind 11 kills each from Mary Ann May and Chloe May, the Lady Knights defeated the Lady Yellowjackets in four sets (22-25, 25-18, 25-23, 25-18) in Versailles.  
    "We were aggressive, but we hit balls out on offense, missed a few serves and just couldn't get a passing rhythm,” Hibbard said. “Even then, we still almost won the first set."

  • BOYS SOCCER: Knights prepare for...

    After beginning the season against a tough John Hardin team, Marion County will face a team that took them to a tie last season. 
    In the Knights' second home game of the 2017 season, Marion County welcomes the Barren County Trojans for a 7:30 p.m. matchup tomorrow. 
    "Our game against Barren County will be an interesting game as we tied them last season," Marion County Head Coach Greg Conley said.

  • FOOTBALL: Young Knights ready to...

    Marion County Head Coach Allen Harmon is preparing to field a young squad for the 2017 season.
    "We're going to be very young," he said. "We're probably going to start several sophomores and some freshman. We'll be a very youthful team. The upper class will help us though. They provide strong leadership and are good young men."

  • They're fulltime now 

    NFL officials.  
    Arguably, they have a very thankless job, receiving sharp criticism from players, fans and coaches alike. They are tasked with making split-second decisions with over 60,000 fans in the stands- not to mention the millions more tuning in from home via the television - watching and ready to voice their disapproval of any of those split-second decisions. Not to mention, they are also tasked with applying and enforcing a 244-page rulebook during the games they officiate.
