  • FOOTBALL: Marion County suffers...

     

  • From the brink

    A team with 102 regular season wins and a historic 22-game winning streak is going home under an utter cloud of disappointment. Despite holding a 2-0 lead in the series, there will be no World Series for this team, no chance to celebrate in champagne baths and no chance to hoist the coveted Commissioner’s Trophy.

  • GIRLS SOCCER: Lady Knights’...

    The Marion County Lady Knights’ season came to an end with a 1-0 loss to the Taylor County Lady Cardinals on Oct. 11 in the 18th District Tournament.
    “Season ending losses are never easy and this one was especially tough because of how well we had been playing down the stretch,” Marion County Head Coach Daniel Johnson said.
    Kenzie Knight scored the only goal 12 minutes into the game. Marion County had 13 shots on goal, but was unable to turn them into goals.

  • Vaught’s Views: Freshman lineman...

    By Larry Vaught

    He patiently waited on his chance to play, and never complained. Now redshirt freshman offensive lineman Drake Jackson of Woodford County has worked himself into the playing rotation at center and likely will only continue to play a bigger and bigger role in the seasons ahead for the Wildcats.
    “The energy is really good around here. I am enjoying everything. We are all feeling good. I am playing both center and guard. I am doing left guard, center, right guard. It’s all good,” Jackson said.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Knights fall in...

    On several occasions, the Lady Knights had a chance to finish things off against Pulaski County on Oct. 10. But, untimely errors and a stout Lady Maroons squad kept the Lady Knights at bay as Pulaski County won in four sets, 25-21, 20-25, 18-25, 23-25.
    Mary Ann May's seven kills, along with six from Sarah Clark, were not enough to overcome hitting errors Marion County fell victim to in the game.

  • BOYS SOCCER: Knights end season...

    Marion County’s season wasn’t trending in the right direction with postseason near, with the Knights losing in six of their last seven games.
    With a solid effort against Estill County, the Knights got a little momentum in time for the district tournament, defeating the Engineers 5-0 in Irvine on Oct. 3 in the final regular season game for Marion County.
    “We played very well,” Marion County Head Coach Greg Conley said. “I’m very pleased with the way we played. It was a great way to end the season.”

  • FOOTBALL: Winless Knights face...

    After getting a bye week to rest and regroup, the Marion County Knights will get back on the field Friday evening in Nicholasville against the East Jessamine Jaguars. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
    “East Jessamine is a good ball club,” Knights Head Coach Allen Harmon said. “They’re big and physical. We’ll have to play good, fundamental football and be ready to match their physicality.”

  • Trying something new

    Change.
    Such a thing scares many people. It’s new and in many cases uncomfortable. Quite frankly, change can be scary. What can I expect? How will this benefit me? What might the challenges be? All these questions, uncertainties and doubts as to the benefits can creep into one’s mind, making change seem like such a daunting and overwhelming step to take.
