  • Marion County sending eight to...
  • Week full of mixed results

     It’s been an interesting week. Spring sports are winding down. We’ve had some bad weather, and things have been up and down. With that said, it seems like things have been a little more down than up. The bad weather forced a halt to some games but was kind enough to be good to those who participated in the Color in Motion 5K.

  • Spalding’s state run ends in...

     You win some and you lose some. 

    Unfortunately, Marion County High School junior Alex Spalding was defeated by St. Francis’ junior Jamie Anderson in the first round of the boys state tennis tournament on May 15. He fell in a tiebreaker that came down to a couple of points and calls by a KHSAA official.

    MCHS Tennis Coach Landon Williams said he hates to see matches come down to calls regardless of what the call was.

  • Lady Knights close softball...

    A heightened battle quickly turned into a series of slow blows as the Marion County Lady Knights destroyed the Washington County Commanderettes, 12-3, in seven innings on May 16. 

    It would be the Lady Knights only game of the week and their last game of the regular season. Lady Knights Head Coach Todd Spalding was happy about their performance. 

    “We hit the ball very well,” Spalding said. “We had 15 hits and four home runs. We hit some bombs.”
