  • Knights baseball looks to...

    After graduating over half of its key players, the Marion County High School Knights baseball team will try to fill those shoes with many returnees that have little or no varsity experience.

  • Girls tennis team features no...

    Marion County High School girls tennis coach Angela Holt is bringing back a very young squad this season that features no seniors and only two juniors.  

    What experience the Lady Knights does have matters.

    "Probably at the top of our varsity players are (juniors) Kameron Simmons and Leanna Begley. Leanna's strength is her power. Kameron has a never say die attitude. I expect her to play in long matches and wear her opponents down," Holt said. "They'll both probably play singles but it may change as the season goes along."

    In the second half, the Lady Knight kept Adair County from staging a comeback to clinch the district title.

    "It really was a good win," Milby said.
