  • Donkey basketball coming to Roby...

    Tired of watching regular basketball games? Don't fret. The Marion County High School girls basketball team is hosting a donkey basketball game at the Roby Dome on Feb. 21.

    What's donkey basketball? Easy. It's basketball played while riding donkeys, silly.

    Four teams (Marion County High School, TG Kentucky, Spring View Hospital and the Area Technical Center) will compete in four-on-four battles while atop stubborn four-legged friends.

  • Aquaknights compete in regional...

    The Marion County High School swim team competed in the Region 3 Swimming and Diving Championship held in Versailles on Feb. 6-7.

    "Despite the weather cutting into critical practice time, we had a really good season," said Coach Colleen Ryan. "Everybody improved their times at regionals and all worked really hard. I'm really proud of Tommy Carrico, who broke the high school 100 freestyle record at regionals, and Annaliece Mattingly, who broke the high school 100 backstroke record at the Hardin Invitational Meet in January. I'm looking forward to next season."

  • Roby Dome scoreboard clocks out

    After several problems throughout this season, the scoreboard at the Roby Dome officially clocked out on Friday night during the Knights game against Taylor County, leaving the teams in the dark about the score and time remaining.

    "This is my third year as athletic director and I've never had any clock issues as a coach or an athletic director," Stacey Hall, Marion County High School athletic director, said. "I've had floor issues but never clock issues."

  • Basketball homecoming is Feb. 6

    Contact MCHS Athletic Director Stacey Hall to RSVP.


  • Ladies thump Adair, Taylor;...

    The Marion County Lady Knights were able to use their game Saturday against Sacred Heart in the Raatz Fence Classic at Mercy High School as a measuring stick for their success this season.

    Unfortunately for the Lady Knights, the results came up short.  

    "We didn't come ready to play. It looked like they were just out there. It was a total team effort. It was all of them. It was awful," Head Coach Trent Milby said. "They picked us apart. We didn't put any pressure on them, they out rebounded us, they out hustled us."

  • Home teams meet held at LAC

    The Marion County Aqua Knights hosted a high school swim meet on Thursday, Jan. 22, with Nelson County and Bethlehem. All three teams practice at the Lebanon Aquatic Center. Nelson County finished with 69.5 points; Marion County placed second with 46.5 points; Bethlehem rounded out the trio with 38 points.

  • Lady Knights claim top seed

    The Marion County Lady Knights are sitting pretty atop the 20th District standings with only one district opponent remaining.

    The Lady Knights locked up the first place seed in the 20th District Tournament that begins in late February. The girls will either face Taylor County or Campbellsville, depending if Taylor County beat Adair County on Tuesday night. Campbellsville and Taylor County split their head-to-head match ups this season but since the Lady Eagles won the second game, they hold an edge over the Lady Cards.

  • Knights fall to district foes

    The Marion County Knights' struggles continued last week but showed progress in their Friday night loss to Taylor County.

    Despite the loss, Head Coach Tim Peterson was pleased with the team's effort.

    "Our effort was a lot better overall," he said. "We want more from our point guards. We need them to make better decisions. We need to do a better job in half court situations, we need to read changing defenses better."

  • Ladies mix it up with Nelson and...

    On Friday night the Lady Knights basketball team battles Nelson County (15-5) on the road. It will be their second match up of the season as the teams grapple for region superiority.

    Tip off is set for 7:30 p.m.

    In round one of the rivalry, the Lady Knights outlasted the Lady Cardinals 59-55 at the Roby Dome. Nelson County junior Samantha Drake torched the Lady Knights in the paint.

    Nelson looks to even the series at home where they haven't lost this season. Marion County beat the Lady Cards at home last season, winning 70-68.

  • Knights to square off with CAL,...

    This week is jam packed for the Knights as they play on the road against Christian Academy of Louisville (CAL), Nelson County and Elizabethtown.

    CAL (11-8) looks to be a tough opponent as they whipped mutual opponent Waggener by 21 points (72-51). Knights Head Coach Tim Peterson added the game late and expects it may go unplayed if the weather performs as expected with ice and snow. The game is scheduled for Tuesday night in Louisville.

    The Knights look to avenge a loss to Nelson County (10-6) when they travel to Bardstown on Friday night.
