  • TRACK AND FIELD: Knights ready...


  • Vaught’s Views: Dominique...

    Dominique Hawkins is not Kentucky’s star player going into this week’s NCAA Tournament play. However, he could turn out to be UK’s most important player.
    The showcase players are freshmen Malik Monk, De’Aaron Fox and Bam Adebayo. They are UK’s top scorers and all are considered likely No. 1 NBA draft picks in June. They've all been the subject of national media features and certainly will be put in the spotlight by CBS-TV.

  • BASEBALL: Coach has high...

    The Marion County Knights came up just short in the 20th District Tournament championship game last year, falling 5-4 to Taylor County. Then they lost 3-2 to the Central Hardin Bruins in the Fifth Region Tournament. 
    They’re surely looking to make some noise come postseason, and Head Coach Patrick Campbell expects great things out of this year’s squad, which will consist of 32 varsity, junior varsity and freshman players. 
    “We have a lot of experience and leadership returning this year,” Campbell said.

  • All in, all the time
  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights...

    Jada Stinson's four three-pointers in the first quarter and six straight points from Elizabethtown to start the second quarter threatened to turn Friday evening's Fifth Region Tournament semifinal into a blowout, forcing Marion County Head Coach Kenny Mills to call a timeout to gather his players and keep the wheels from falling off.
    What did he tell them? Step it up, or else you're going home. 

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Knights prepare...

    After a scrimmage at Garrard County Monday evening, the Marion County Lady Knights will kick off the regular season at 6 p.m., tomorrow, at home against the Thomas Nelson Generals. The Lady Knights will be seeking to defend their district title as they come off a 25-8 campaign last season that included a 5-0 win against the Taylor County Lady Cardinals to clinch the district championship. Marion County, however, was blown out in the Fifth Region Tournament, 11-1, by the Hart County Lady Raiders. 

  • TENNIS: Williams resigns,...

    Despite new leadership for Marion County High School’s tennis team, the goals are still very much the same as the 2017 campaign gets underway. 

  • SWIMMING: Aquaknights season...

    The Marion County Aquaknights’ season came to an end at the regional swim meet at the Russell County Natatorium Complex in Russell Springs, Feb. 10-11.
    The boys 200 medley relay team consisting of Justin Spalding, Brandon Miles, Eli Nelson and Matthew Miles finished with a time of 1:53.33 in the championship and 1:54.19 in the preliminaries, finishing third and second respectively and advancing to championship rounds.
