  • Youth basketball making some...

     Marion County Youth Basketball is making some changes, and although sign-ups aren’t until September, league officials are trying to get the word out to parents.

    The league will have a different age group structure this fall. The girls’ leagues will be for 7-9-year-olds and 10-12-year-olds, and the boys’ leagues will be for 7-9-year olds and 9-11-year-olds. The number of 9 year olds who will play in each division will depend on how many boys sign up for the older division.

  • Moo Crew Tournament

     On June 7, Graham Memorial Park hosted the Moo Crew Tournament. Through the rising heat of the day, nine teams battled it out for the sake of fun and, according to Moo Crew crew member Patrick Spalding, the admission fees of the event went to cover the expenses of putting on the tournament.

  • A little goes a long way

     With Marion County High School’s sports programs in hibernation at the moment, I am left dipping my thoughts and hands into the hidden world of athletic activities in Marion County. While I do like putting a focus on some of the lesser known activities, it means I have to work just a little bit harder. I have to approach these activities from a completely different angle than I did at the high school. 

    It also means the beat of the rhythm I have been dancing to has changed.

  • Softball coach resigns

    In seven years, the Marion County Lady Knights have had three coaches. Next year, they’ll have a fourth.

    On May 28, Lady Knights Softball Coach Todd Spalding resigned from his leadership role. In an email to The Lebanon Enterprise and school officials, Spalding said his continuation as coach would not be beneficial to the team. 

  • Track team ends season at state

    The Marion County High School Track Team completed its season at the KHSAA state track meet last week. Now that the season has come to an end, one can reflect on the team’s performance. 

    The team’s coach, Daniel Johnson, said MCHS had has done better than it has in recent years. 

  • Tennis season includes many good...

    After a raging rise to the top, the Marion County tennis team ended their season standing tall. The boys finished 18-5 and the girls ended their run 15-7. 

    Tennis Coach Landon Williams said the team’s depth really helped them along the way this year.

  • Lady Knights receive softball...

     On May 28, the Marion County Lady Knights held their end of the year awards ceremony. 

    Leading the team with the MVP award was their only senior, Colleen Rakes. She also received most runs scored. 

    Kylie Benningfield, a sophomore, received three awards during the event: Highest batting average, most extra base hits, and highest productive bat percentage. 

    Below is a list of all the girls who received awards. 

  • Kids Fishing Day went well,...

     First off, I’d like to apologize for “making up”, OK, outright lying, so much in my article last week!

    As I said then, “When nothing much has been happening, there’s nothing much to write about.” Given this, the only alternative is to not turn anything in, or make something up to turn in. And if I don’t turn anything in, I don’t get paid! With the way the economy is running, I don’t want to give up that check.
