  • Knights drop two home games

    Two goals in five minutes. Four goals in 10 minutes, and six goals by halftime. The No. 9 Mercer County Titans turned their game against the Marion County Knights on Sept. 27 into a 9-0 blowout win behind a quick start and missed opportunities by the Knights who were in action for the first time since clinching the No. 1 seed in the district tournament.

  • Lady Knights drop two

    Poor defensive play doomed the Marion County Lady Knights in a loss against the Russell County Lakers on Sept. 26. The Lady Knights lost 19-25, 23-25.
    "We were totally undisciplined in our defensive rotations tonight," Lady Knights Head Coach David Hibbard said. "We simply could not keep the Lakers from doing whatever they wanted on offense. We tried to make rallies in both sets at the end but our defense simply let us down. We also did not handle their aggressive serving well. This was one of our worst serve-receive matches of the whole season.

    Sports are unpredictable, and that's what makes them exciting. That's what makes people watch, and that's one of the many reasons the stadiums are filled.

  • Season ends at region, Knights...

    Bryce Spalding missed a trip to the state tournament by one shot, and the Knights, finishing with a team score of 346, failed to advance to the state tournament as well. The Knights’ season came to an end at the regional tournament at the Bardstown Country Club at Maywood last week.
    Head Coach Joey Reed remained positive despite the disappointing end to his first season as the head coach.

    It’s fall y’all! The time of year when if ya can’t find something to do in our outdoors you have a serious problem.
    But I don’t hunt, you say. I respect that. But, do you like the pure beauty of God’s canvas? More colors than you can describe. Crisp cool air you can breathe. OK, you can breathe the rest of the year, too, but you won’t enjoy it as much.

    Before Bam Adebayo started his seventh grade basketball season, he had already dunked a basketball. His motor has never quit running since then, either.
    The 6-10, 255-pound Adebayo is being counted on to solve the deficiencies Kentucky had with its post play last season with his physical presence and dominant rebounding.
    He's been called a "monster" by many because of the strength and energy he has on the court.

  • FOOTBALL: Mistakes send Knights...

    Mistakes once again plagued the Marion County Knights in their 43-6 loss to the Mercer County Titans in the Horns Home Improvement Game on Sept. 23.
    "I was disappointed in regards to the lack of physicality," Knights Head Coach Allen Harmon said. “We weren't able to match Mercer County's physicality on defense as well. Mercer County did a good job at being physical."
