  • So close

    In sports, there have been many times where a team was so close to victory that many had already proclaimed dishearteningly or joyfully, "The game is over!" After all, only one yard separated this team from the end zone or a team held a two-point lead with only a second or two left. The odds were stacked in their favor and they were prepared to take the lead. It was all going right and then, well, it all changed in the blink of an eye.

  • GIRLS SOCCER: Lady Knights...

    The Marion County Lady Knights dropped their season opener against the Grayson County Lady Cougars 10-0.
    The Lady Cougars opened scoring at the 33:34 mark with a goal that sailed over goalkeeper Carrington McKay's head. She finished the game with five saves but gave up seven goals before Sophia Kroschke stepped in, recording three saves but giving up three more goals.

  • Woods and Waters: Discussing...

    Over the past couple of weeks we’ve talked about the upcoming dove season … traditionally Sept. 1.
    We’ve talked about hunting the birds and safety. So now we’ll talk about something that very few people I hunt with use: Decoys and dove whistles.
    To clarify, most dove hunters go out the first couple of hunts in September, then their season is over. And to be honest, decoys and dove whistles (calls) aren’t really necessary when hunting the young, dumb birds looking for something to eat!

  • Vaught’s Views: Kentucky...

    By Larry Vaught

    No one wanted to talk about any internal problems on the Kentucky football team last year. Never mind that the issues seemed obvious to almost everyone.
    During preseason camp this month, a few players have hinted that this year's team is far more united.
    Quarterback Drew Barker, who started the final two games last season, said there was "no doubt" the team was more united and had more purpose. He credits new offensive coordinator Eddie Gran for much of that on the offensive side.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Knights begin...

    The Marion County Lady Knights began their 2016 campaign at the Roby Dome on Aug. 16 against the Woodford County Lady Yellow Jackets but weren’t able to come away with a win, losing 18-25, 25-20, 22-25.
    "We came out totally flat and played like we were afraid to play volleyball," Lady Knights Head Coach David Hibbard said.

  • MCHS cross country team wants to...

    The Marion County High School Cross Country Team is planning to have fun and improve as a team this season, according to Head Coach Sherbie King.
    "Last season was one of the best seasons in a long time," he said. "I had a girls varsity team that placed second and third at several meets."
    The Knights will have a total of 20 players on this year's team but will have no senior leadership. Of the players on this year's team, King is expecting big things out of two returning runners and also a "bright new runner."

  • Tee Time: ‘You drive for show...

    By Dennis George

    I was playing golf with a gentleman earlier this year and noticed he was using one of the original Ping Anser putters. Of course, that is the iconic flatstick that Karsten Solheim designed in his garage in 1966 that at one time was used by half of the golfers on the PGA tour.
    My golfing partner said he received the club as a gift from his (former) girlfriend and it’s the only putter that he’s ever used.

  • FOOTBALL: Knights play well, but...

    The Marion County High School football team kicked off their 2016 campaign in scrimmage action at the Thomas Nelson Generals on Aug. 12, but fell short 27-20. The Knights and Generals played until halftime before the varsity teams stepped aside to allow the junior varsity teams to play in two 10-play rotations. There were also three rotations of red zone play between the varsity squads.

  • Into the sunset

    Friday, Aug. 12, was the last game for the Yankees' Alex Rodriguez. He had announced his intention to retire on Aug. 7, and will become a team consultant for the Yankees.
