  • Vaught’s Views: Jamal Murray is...

    By Larry Vaught

    Others can rave about Jamal Murray all they want — and most college basketball analysts are — but the Kentucky freshman doesn’t pay attention to that or forecasts that he could be a top five pick in the 2016 NBA draft.
    “It is a lot to have that said about you, but I have not earned anything yet. I just try to stay focused and make sure this team goes where it needs to go,” said Murray.

  • Splat Out Cancer at Friday’s...

    The Marion County High School FBLA, BETA, and FCCLA organizations have joined together to Splat Out Cancer in memory of the late Marion County Football Coach Jeff Robbins. Students will be selling paint balloons at Friday’s football game for $1. Balloons may then be thrown at the Splatting Out Cancer board. After fall break, the board will be on display at MCHS.  All proceeds will be donated to cancer research in the memory of Coach Robbins.

    In my house, Sundays are for two things: Jesus and football, and last Sunday was no exception. I went to church, then drove to my dad’s house to watch the Bengals teach the Chargers a lesson in passing completion.
    Now, I’m a huge fan of sports. I play sports; I watch sports; I plan on forcing encouraging my kids to play sports when I have them. However, I have a few grievances with sports, namely the adversity women face.

  • Reminiscing about Sidewalk Sales...

    Our annual Marion County Ham Days Open Bass Tournament, sponsored by the Mid-Kentucky Bass Anglers – was again a huge success. We had 11 boats with 19 anglers participating this year. Weather was perfect, maybe a little windy at times, but good temperatures.
    Bass were scattered and in their fall pattern. (“Fall pattern” – sounded good even if I don’t know what that means!)

    Marion County High School volleyball has some big shoes to fill in the wake of its 2014 district title.

    Coach Derek Cissell has made some serious changes to the Marion County girls soccer team.
    After a less than impressive season last year, Cissell has looked to the middle schools for players and has nearly tripled his previous roster.
    “We’re really young and inexperienced, but we’re really coming together as a team,” Cissell said.

    Writing is my life. It’s my passion. It’s my future. It’s full of adventure.
    When the publisher of The Lebanon Enterprise sent me an email asking if I was interested in a part-time position, I knew a great adventure was in store.
    Now I have the pleasure of introducing myself as the Enterprise’s newest sports correspondent, and I couldn’t be more excited.

  • Two Lady Knights teams get new...

    Both are familiar faces on the sidelines, and both will be taking on new roles during upcoming seasons.
    Landon Williams has been named the new Marion County High School girls basketball coach, and Jonathan Spalding will be the new Lady Knights softball coach.
    For the past few years, Williams has coached tennis at the high school since 2012, and he’s been the freshmen boys basketball coach for the past two years.
    “He’s won back-to-back district titles at the freshmen level,” Principal Mike Abell said.
