  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Marion County...

    After drawing two technical fouls early in the fourth quarter of Marion County’s 74-66 win against Sayre Friday, Jamison Epps was sidelined for Marion County’s game against Washington County Saturday and Green County last night. He’s scheduled to return when Marion County faces the Campbellsville Eagles at 7:30 p.m., Jan. 12, in Campbellsville.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Draw to be used...

    Teams in the 20th District will no longer be seeded in this year’s district tournament in boys basketball. Back in February, athletic directors from the four schools in the 20th District - Marion County, Campbellsville, Taylor County and Adair County - voted to use a blind draw to determine matchups for the district tournament effective for the 2017-18 season. The decision was made 3-1, and means district standings will no longer be used to determine matchups.

  • The emotion of sports

    Emotions.
    You always see them in sports to some degree and in some form. Victory, defeat, the thrill of a big play and coming up just short have given us the greatest displays of emotions.
    Thousands upon thousands of sports games have been played over the years

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    Lady Knights Head Coach Kelly Wood knows his team is struggling, having lost seven of the last nine games.
    “We’re in a funk,” he said. “We’ve got to get out of this slump. If you don’t show up you’re going to lose. Teams won’t give it to you just because you show up in their gym. We’re just out of it right now but I’d rather it be now than later. Something good will happen once we hit our stride. We’ve had good practices and the effort is there, but we’ve lost something and need to find it.”

  • Vaught’s views: Father hopes UK...

    Terry Barker knows he can’t control how University of Kentucky fans will remember his son, Drew Barker. He just hopes a couple of off-field incidents during his son’s freshman year will not distort what fans remember about him now that he decided to transfer after spending four years at UK.
    “I hope a couple of off-field incidents will not define his legacy at Kentucky,” Terry Barker said. “People who know Drew know both of those incidents were not ones where Drew meant any harm.”

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights fall to...

    Marion County was on the rally again, surging late and nearly grabbing the lead. The Knights almost orchestrated a comeback to be remembered.
    South Oldham escaped with a 66-61 win over Marion County on Dec. 22 in the Twin Lakes Classic. Lez Means almost put the Knights on top but was called for a charge driving to the basket with under a minute left.
    "We came out slow and picked it up in the second half but it was too big of a hole to overcome," Knights Head Coach Montrelle Irvin said.

  • There was no quit

    A comeback is sport’s most prime example of overcoming the odds. A team faces a sizeable deficit with limited time to overcome it. Hope for a win dwindles by the second. Every pass, every shot, every swing takes on heightened importance, with the trajectory of the game resting on each.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    Marion County looked to be in firm control, holding a double-digit lead and 180 seconds away from victory. Spencer County rallied furiously and forced overtime, eventually coming away with a 68-62 overtime victory on Friday in both team’s final game of the Bardstown Holiday Classic.
    The Lady Bears hit two threes in their rally. Alyssa Howie had 18 points, Lauren Lambdin scored 16 and Amie Conley had 12.
