  • SOFTBALL: Carpenter hits two...

    Elise Carpenter hit two home runs, Haley Mattingly pitched her second perfect game this season in three innings, and Marion County used a 10-run first inning to blow past Adair County (1-10, 0-1) 15-0 in the opening game of regular season district play for both teams April 10.
    "When you score 10 runs in the first inning, it makes it hard for the other team to do anything," Lady Knights Head Coach Jonathan Spalding said. "We hit the ball really well. They didn’t give it to us." 

  • TENNIS: Rough outing for Knights...

    The Knights were a bit sluggish coming off Spring Break last Monday against John Hardin at Graham Memorial Park April 10, with both the boys and girls winning only one match each on the afternoon. In doubles, Hank Hardin and Collin Abell pulled off a win, 7-5, 6-0. Emily Gordon, for the girls, also won her singles match, 6-3, 6-3. However, Ireland Cassidy lost her singles match 4-6, 5-7, and both girls doubles teams lost. Hope Rawlings and Brooke Davis fell 0-6, 4-6 and Mya Emmons and Eden Kessler fell 0-6. 1-6.

    By Larry Vaught

    It took Emmy winning director Jonathan Hock almost 20 months to put together the documentary, “One And Not Done,” on Kentucky coach John Calipari that aired on ESPN last week.
    Like many Kentucky fans have come to believe, Hock admits he perhaps had the wrong perception of Calipari until he had a chance to get to know him.

    By Larry Vaught

    For the last 40 years Rob Bromley has covered University of Kentucky sports — along with other things — for WKYT-TV (Channel 27) in Lexington. However, he announced last week he was retiring at the end of September.
    I had been covering UK sports for about two years when Bromley started and never in 40 years have I heard him say anything bad about anyone or anyone say anything bad about one of the nicest men I’ve ever known. He’s also the most tenured television anchor on the air in Kentucky.

    The postseason is drawing closer and closer for the Marion County High School Track and Field team.

  • TENNIS: Knights face LaRue...

    Marion County's final tennis match before the Heartland Conference tournament will come against some stiff competition, according to Knights Head Coach Noah Swencki. Marion County will pick up their tennis rackets and lace up their sneakers to conclude regular season play April 18 at LaRue County before the Heartland Conference tournament begins April 22. 
    "LaRue County is a pretty decent team," Swencki said. "We will want it to be a competitive match. They'll be a solid team and they won't be a pushover."

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Knights held...

    A misjudged throw in the fifth and a poor showing from the bats doomed Marion County in their opening game of the Lady Cardinal Classic Saturday in Campbellsville. 
    The Lady Knights fell to the Glasgow Lady Scotties, 1-0. 
    "We struck out 10 times and had three errors.  You cannot win a game with that kind of statistic," Head Coach Jonathan Spalding said.
