  • You've been drafted

    In the City of Brotherly Love, 253 people joined some exclusive company this past weekend. 
    The NFL held its annual draft in Philadelphia April 27-29 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where the NFL's 32 teams selected from a wide pool of players and looked to find a missing piece for a championship team, find a young, talented player to build around, or bolster an already talented roster.

  • TENNIS: Boys tennis team wins...

  • Male track team finishes third...

    Marion County's male athletes finished third and Stephen Salgado improved his triple jump by three feet to set a new personal of 42' 1" in the Cardinal Classic at Nelson County High School on April 25. 
    The new personal record put Salgado within a foot of the school record. 

  • Vaught’s Views: Kash Daniel...

    By Larry Vaught

    Kash Daniel has a lot of lofty goals for himself during his sophomore season at Kentucky and has them posted on his apartment wall so he sees them every night.
    He wants to bench press 405 pounds and squat 550. He wants to play on every special team UK has. He wants to start at linebacker even though UK returns linebackers Jordan Jones and Courtney Love, its top two tacklers from last year.
    Daniel also wants to make a national name for himself after making 19 tackles in 13 games last year.

  • BASEBALL: Knights fall in extras...

    In the bottom of the fourth, Mother Nature made an unexpected visit to Dave Hourigan Field April 18. First, lightning stopped a scoreless, defensive struggle between Marion County and Campbellsville, then rain suspended the game until the next evening. Wednesday evening, the Eagles (10-7, 3-1) defeated district rival Marion County 1-0, scoring the only run of the game in the ninth inning when Trayce Mattingly laid down a squeeze bunt and brought John Orberson home.
