  • Little Leaguers, June 4
  • Freshmen finishes fifth at state

    Though they did not come in first, the Marion County High School track team is still one of the best around. On May 23, eight local athletes rocked the bluegrass by competing in the state track meet at the University of Kentucky.

    Track Coach Daniel Johnson said competing at the state level was an honor for the team.

    “It’s what we worked all year for,” Johnson said. 

  • Thank you!

     Last week marked the end of Marion County High School sports for the academic year. Both the baseball and softball teams were eliminated in the district tournament and the track team competed in the state tournament, which was held at the University of Kentucky. 

    Like many of the coaches, I watched some athletes improve their capabilities; though not as long as the coaches have (we’re talking months versus years, folks).

  • Lady Knights eliminated by Adair...

    In the world of sports, anything can happen.

    In a twist of fate, the Marion County Lady Knights fell to the Adair County Lady Indians in their first game of the 20th District Tournament on May 20.

    They were derailed 6-3 in a heated affair.

    Despite being upset about the loss, Lady Knights Coach Todd Spalding said the team played well this year.

  • District defeat for baseball...

    It ended with silent tears, crackling voices, and a parent saying, “Good job, MC.”

    Despite the solemn ending, the Marion County Knights charged into battle against the Campbellsville Eagles in the first round of the 20th District Tournament on May 19.

    The Knights fell to the Eagles 4-0, ending their season with a 10-17 record.

    For Knights Coach Patrick Campbell, the feeling could be described in one word: “Heartbreak.” 

  • Knights looking to improve

     A devastating defeat in the 20th District Tournament ended the Marion County Knights’ season with the team’s record ending at 10-17, but for Knights Coach Patrick Campbell, the season has been an interesting ride.

    “It was a fun season with lots of ups and downs,” Campbell said. “Our record doesn’t show the talent of this team, and with rainouts it really made it hard to keep any kind of momentum going.”

  • Marion County softball dealt...

     Though they fell in the 20th District Tournament on May 20, the Marion County Lady Knights are far from down or out. In fact, they beat out 12 other schools to finish sixth in the region with a 16-9 record.

    According to Coach Todd Spalding, the team overcame adversity and went above and beyond his expectations.

    “Our kids played really hard and I thought we were successful this season,” Spalding said. 

  • Another fun weekend fishing

     My favorite two words: Early Deadline!

    Well, here goes. Saturday morning dawned clear and promised great weather. A little after 8 a.m. we were beginning to wonder. Then the kids, both young and old, started to show up.

    They were greeted by bouncies, minnow race trays, plastic bass casting game, available boat rides and of course fishing!
