  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Spalding...

    The Lady Knights had to wait a little longer to take the court, playing in the second game of the boy/girl doubleheader as opposed to the first.
    Things were business as usual for Marion County when they did hit the court, defeating the Generals 76-50 and improving to a 4-1 mark on the season.
    “Our pressure caused them some problems,” Marion County Head Coach Kelly Wood said. “We shot better and moved the ball better.”

    Makayla Epps added another honor to an already long list of basketball accomplishments Saturday at Marion County High School. Epps came back to the Roby Dome to have her jersey retired during a ceremony during the boy/girl doubleheader against the Campbellsville Eagles.
    “It’s a crazy feeling,” she said. “Growing up, I never thought much about it. Growing up, I never really knew the impact I would have on the game of basketball or the impact I would have on my city. It’s just an amazing night for me.”

    By Larry Vaught

    Once the student section started calling him “Terry Touchdown” in high school, quarterback Terry Wilson was all-in with the nickname.
    “I was balling out and the name just stuck. I thought it was a good nickname, too. So did my teammates. They called me that and teased me about it. It jus stuck,” said Wilson.

  • A word with the wise

    “You got to start somewhere.”
    As the old saying goes, everyone who has ever achieved something or become successful had to start somewhere. Once finding somewhere to begin, whether it be at a small shop, the backyard or their own home, the successful and achieving most likely had someone who mentored and taught them what they needed to know to be successful. A famous TV show host, a U.S Senator, the founder of Facebook and a baseball legend all had mentors.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    Marion County made quick work of putting Fairdale away.
    Dailyn Spalding scored 17, Tanika Williams added 12 and the Lady Knights ran away with an 80-15 victory on Dec. 5 in Louisville. All but two Marion County players scored in the game and the team shot 57 percent from the field.
    The Lady Knight defense was also shutting down an already anemic Lady Bulldog offense-averaging a mere 23.2 points in the first five contests of the season- forcing 23 steals and holding Fairdale to 6-32 shooting.

  • SWIMMING: Aquaknights get six...

    In the opening swim meet of the season, the Marion County Aquaknights finished in first or second place in six events.

  • Vaught’s Views: Kentucky fans...

    By Larry Vaught

    One reason that Florida signee Keyontae Johnson is playing at Oak Hill Academy this season is because he wanted to be on the same team as Keldon Johnson, a Kentucky signee.
    The two have been friends for years and Keyontae Johnson wanted to spend this season on the court with him before they start playing against each other in college.
