    A new face has appeared on the Enterprise’s sports pages recently. Casey Sowers, a senior at Marion County High School, has started covering sports for the Enterprise. Former sports correspondent Nick Schrager recently accepted a reporter’s position at The Springfield Sun.

  • Former Marion County coach...

     “God will open the right doors for you, and He’ll close the wrong doors for you.”

    Those are the words of former Marion County Knights basketball coach Kelly Wells as he spoke at the Knights tipoff banquet on Nov. 16 at the Knights of Columbus Hall.

    Wells, who now coaches the University of Pikeville Bears, coached Marion County from 1995-1997 and led the Knights to their last 5th Region tournament title.

  • You don’t need to get a deer to...

     Here it is, 10 days after the start of the 2014 modern gun season. And, in our Zone Three, it’s the last day of our 2014 modern gun season.

    Oh, there’s still archery until Jan. 19 and crossbow season until Dec. 31. Plus, we have a muzzleloader season Dec. 13-21.

    So, here I am, thinking about other seasons and not the one we’re in.

  • Winning season

     I have a confession to make. 

    When I made my way to Rockcastle County for the first and only game of the Marion County Knights’ postseason on Nov. 7, I had a feeling it would be their only night in the postseason. Though the team’s records were the same, the Rockets had a better district and region record. The feeling that Marion County was going to lose got worse when the Rockcastle County Rockets scored within the opening moments of the game. 

  • Football: Rockets blast past...

    The Marion County Knights’ season ground to a halt when they were eliminated 28-7 by the Rockcastle County Rockets in the first round of the Class 4A Russell Athletic/KHSAA Commonwealth Gridiron Bowl on Nov. 7.

  • Basketball: Marion County boys...

    After an abrupt and painful end to the 2013-14 season, the Marion County Knights are preparing to bounce back this year. 

    With the clock counting down, the Knights will start their season with a scrimmage later this month. On Nov. 22, they will play in the King of the Bluegrass Jamboree in Fairdale. The JV team is scheduled to play at noon and they will be followed by the varsity team, which is scheduled to tip off a 1:30 p.m.

  • Basketball: Fresh start with...

    The sound of sneakers squeaking and basketballs dribbling filled the air at Roby Dome as the Marion County Lady Knights warmed up with a practice last week. The Lady Knights, who are coming off a run at the regional tournament last year, are preparing to enter the season with many young faces. 

    “Our main goal is to keep the streak of winning district alive,” Lady Knights Coach Anthony Epps said. “It’s going to be a lot tougher this year being that we’re so small.”
