  • Vaught’s Views: The rules could...

    By Larry Vaught

    If the American Football Coaches Association has its way, college football players would be allowed to play in four games and still be able to count that as a redshirt season.
    Most coaches already seem to be in favor of the potential change, including influential Alabama coach Nick Saban.

  • BASEBALL: Spalding, Thomas shut...

    A shutout win against a top team in the Fifth Region is a good way to rebound from two straight losses. 
    Andrew Spalding and Luke Thomas pitched their second combined shutout this season and Marion County used a four-run second inning to defeat the visiting Bethlehem Eagles 6-0 on Dave Hourigan Field. The loss was only the second game in which Bethlehem (18-10, 8-4) was held scoreless this season. The Eagles also fell 11-0 to Nelson County on April 25.

  • CROSS COUNTRY: King resigns as...

    Sherbie King has resigned as head coach of Marion County High School’s cross country team. His resignation was effective May 8.
    King said he’s stepping down because of health issues.
    "I don't want cross country runners currently in the program to quit just because there's a new coach," he said.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Knights score six...

    An explosive inning was just what Marion County needed when playing Russell County last week. The Lady Knights scored all six of their runs in the fourth inning. Haley Mattingly shut down the Russell County lineup and Marion County defeated the Lakers (14-16, 6-0) 6-0 in Russell Springs on May 9. 
    "It was nice to come off a six day layoff and win on the road," Marion County Head Coach Jonathan Spalding said. "We had to grind through it a little though."

  • Vaught’s Views: UK’s Malik Monk...

    By Larry Vaught

    Malik Monk is considered a lock to be a top 10 pick in the June NBA Draft, but that doesn’t mean everyone feels he is destined to be a NBA star.
    Monk led the Southeastern Conference in scoring at Kentucky as a freshman and was among the nation’s elite scorers from 3-point range. Yet ESPN analysts Fran Fraschilla and Jeff Goodman both have some questions about his NBA future.
