  • Track team gears up for region

    Last week was the last hurrah for the Marion County High School track team before they enter post-season competitions.

    The track team traveled to the Bardstown Invitational on Thursday of last week. The girls team claimed eighth place out of 11 teams with 33 points while the boys team finished seventh out of 12 teams with 45 points.

  • LMS archers hit the top 50

    The Lebanon Middle School archery team placed 50th out of 65 teams in the National Archery in the Schools Program National Tournament at the Kentucky Exposition Center on Saturday in Louisville.

    The team finished with 2,936 points overall, with 65 bull's-eyes collectively. Ashville Middle School in Alabama won the overall middle school category with 3,350 points with 178 bulls eyes.

    According to the NASP's website, the tournament was the largest ever in United States history. More than 5,00 archers from across the country and Canada competed on Friday and Saturday.

  • Lancers win overtime thriller

    The Lancers scratched their way to victory Saturday night. What started as an abysmal shooting night for the Lebanon Lancers (3-2) led to an overtime victory at the Roby Dome.

    The Lancers bullied their way down low against longer, leaner Kentucky Thunder in the first half to no avail as their close range shots clanged off the rim time and time again.    

    A buzzer-beating tip in was all that saved the Thunder from losing in regulation. Overtime, however, belonged to the Lancers.

  • Lebanon Middle heads to national...

    The Lebanon Middle School archery team is taking a trip up I-65 this weekend to participate in the National Archery in the Schools Program national tournament at the Kentucky Exposition Center.

    According to the Louisville Courier-Journal, more than 5,000 elementary, middle and high school students representing 46 states will participate in the event.

    Hours for the competition are 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Admission is $5 each day.

  • Lady Knights limp out of...

    The Marion County High School Lady Knights softball team (13-14) went into last week with the ability to control their own destiny and win their way out to gain the number one seed in the upcoming 20th District tournament.

    Instead, they lost back-to-back games to teams they had previously beaten to fall all the way to a number three seed in the tournament.

    "We weren't mentally ready to play in either game," Lady Knights Head Coach Trent Milby said.

  • The "Unpredictables"...

    The Marion County High School baseball team earned the moniker "The

    Unpredictables" after a strong yet surprising finish in regular season district play.

    Stocked with young players, the Knights (10-9) showed their range of unpredictability by getting blown out at home by a team they previously competed well with, blowing out a team that squeezed by in their previous meeting and avenging a home loss by winning at a place they rarely win at.

  • Knights flex muscles in HAC

    Cyrus Moslemi strikes again. Moslemi, who was unveiled by Washington County in their regular season match against Marion County, destroyed the Heartland Athletic Conference tournament competition last week to claim the singles crown.

    Moslemi beat three opponents in two straight sets, winning 6-0 each time. No player in the field was able to put a game on Moslemi.

    Moslemi took out Jordan Culver in the second round and Joseph George in the final round en route to victory. He is likely the number one seed heading into the region tournament.

  • Track team fine-tunes before HAC

    The Marion County High School track team had a good showing during the Bardstown All-Comers meet last Thursday while getting ready to host the Heartland Athletic Conference (HAC) meet on Tuesday.

    MCHS hosted the HAC meet on Tuesday starting at 5:30. Results from the meet can be found at www.lebanonenterprise.com.

    MCHS will also host the region track meet on May 16. The events kick off at 11 a.m. and will conclude sometime around 4 p.m.

  • Simmons claims singles crown

    Leanna Begley may have lost but it was still a dream come true.

    Begley faced teammate Kameron Simmons in the singles final of the Heartland Athletic Conference tournament last week in a match up they've both dreamed of.

    "Kameron told me that when she and Leanna were young tennis players they used to dream that one day they would be playing in the finals of the conference tournament. This year their dream came true. I'm extremely proud of them," Lady Knights Head Coach Angela Holt said.

  • Knights upset Campbellsville

    The Marion County High School baseball team kept themselves in the mix for a good seed in the 20th District tournament by beating Campbellsville and Adair County last week.

    Campbellsville had previously beaten the Knights 8-2 at Hourigan Field but Eric Miles pitched a gem from the mound and turned it around for Marion County.

    "That was an unbelievable game for us. The kids really performed well and executed. Eric Miles was fantastic on the mound," Knights Head Coach Chad Spalding said.
