Today's Sports

  • 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.

  • Linescores, June 4

     Marion County Little League softball

    May 26

    Rays        200 112 - 6

    Yankees  011 122 - 7

    Savannah Benningfield scored the winning run as the Yankees prevailed with a two-out, two-run rally in the bottom of the sixth inning. For the Rays Emma Sullivan went 2 for 2 with two RBI.

  • 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).
