  • Never too late

    Age is just a number, many people will say. 
    One Joe Thomas Sr. is no exception to this cliché. At 55, he took the field for the South Carolina State Bulldogs in their game against the Savannah State Tigers on Saturday in the first quarter, and in gaining three yards on his first carry, is now believed to be the oldest college football player to see game action in a Division l football game.

  • Woods and Waters: Spend Black...

    Here come the holidays - and most hunting seasons are open. Between the available hunting and fishing it’s sorta hard sometimes to make up your mind on what to do!
    Being retired, I have more time to enjoy my outdoor addictions. Those who have jobs know all about the overload. By the time most work schedules are over it’s too close to dark to hunt anything. Same for fishing. You’re forced to cram in as much as possible on weekends and holidays. Of course, with a family, even those days are limited.

  • SWIMMING: Aquaknights dive into...

    The Marion County Aquaknights began their 2016-17 campaign on Nov. 19 in the Russell County Fall Preview Meet.
    "I was really happy with our teams results at this meet, especially our new swimmers," Aquaknights Head Coach Katie Johnson said. "They held their own. We look to have a very diverse team this year."

  • Vaught’s Views: Center Nick...

    By Larry Vaught

    The recruitment of 6-5 Chattanooga guard Shai Alexander was like a "rocket ship movement" in the last year and he finally landed at the University of Kentucky.
    "Over the past year he has gone from somebody nobody knew with low major recruitment to a high level top 50 player in the class," said Zach Ferrell, Alexander's coach at Hamilton Heights. "His size for a point guard is awesome. He has a great work ethic and knows hows to treat teammates. He's a great person."

  • Run like a girl

    The first-ever Marion County Girls on the Run and Heart & Sole Practice 5k was held Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Marion County High School track. All of the amazing girls who participated will also be attending the Girls on the Run Central Kentucky 5k in Lexington on Dec. 3.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights gearing...

    Knights Head Coach Montrelle Irvin advanced to the Fifth Region Tournament last season, which was his fifth season coaching the Marion County Knights.
    He's looking to go further in his sixth.
    "The expectations are high this season," Irvin said. "The core of our team is back, and with everyone back, we're looking to revisit region and go a little further. We knew we were going to take our bumps and bruises last season. Being young, we had to grow up quickly. I felt we did a great job of that."

  • The Shakeup

    Now the chaos has perhaps finally begun to ensue in college football. Perhaps the "Saturday Shakeup" is fitting in describing what occurred on Saturday, as three of the four teams ranked in the top four of the college football playoff rankings fell. Alabama was the lone team of the four to escape Saturday unscathed, soundly defeating Mississippi State 51-3.
