  • GOLF: Knights split pair of...

    The Marion County Knights hit the green on Aug. 10 against the Campbellsville Eagles and Taylor County Cardinals at the Campbellsville Country Club. In what Knights Head Coach Joey Reed called an “ugly match,” the Knights pulled out the win, posting a 174 team score. The Cardinals posted 176 while the Eagles posted a 204.
    “All of the guys didn’t play the way I wanted them to,” Reed said. “It was ugly, but a win is a win.”
    Houston Raikes led the Knights in the match with a score of 41.

  • Wood and Waters: Dove season is...

    With dove season opening up in a couple of weeks, we need to go over some safety rules.
    First off: Don’t shoot anybody! Sounds simple but that’s what it all comes down to. When you’re in a dove field ya gotta know where everybody else is located. Which is why once everyone gets settled, ya don’t move around. Once you know where everyone else is stationed swing your shotgun (unloaded) so you’ll know your limits … to avoid shooting at anyone.

  • BOYS SOCCER: Knights bounce back...

    The Marion County Knights bounced back from two losses in scrimmage play last week with a 2-1 win against the Franklin County Flyers on Aug. 13.
    "We played very, very well in the game and were able to move the ball around well," Knights Head Coach Greg Conley said. "I feel we are definitely ready for the regular season."

  • Vaught’s Views: Davonte Robinson...

    By Larry Vaught

    Most years Davonte Robinson would have been the marquee in-state player in Kentucky’s football recruiting class.
    He led Henry Clay in tackles for three straight years (he had 100 tackles and one interception as a senior) and was the top-rated defensive back in the state with offers from Georgia, Louisville, Notre Dame, Ohio State and many others along with UK.
    He was a Class AAA 100-meter dash state champion as a sophomore and helped Henry Clay win team titles in 2015 and 2016.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Knights split...

    The Marion County Lady Knights began pre-season action in Bardstown versus the Tigers on Aug. 9, but fell in three sets, 21-25, 25-23, 31-37.
    Though the Lady Knights were unable to secure the win in a close game, Lady Knights Head Coach David Hibbard drew several positives from the scrimmage.
    "We played with energy and intensity all night," he said. "We started strong and finished strong in all three sets."

  • Baseball: Baker selected for...

    The Springfield Sun

    This week, Beau Baker will have the chance to participate in something that not many 10-year-olds can claim to have done: play for a national all-star team.
    This opportunity came about for Beau while playing in the Baseball Youth National Showcase in Westfield, Indiana, recently as part of his travel team, the Danville-based Morse Mustangs.

  • BOYS SOCCER: Knights drop two...

    The Marion County Knights warmed up for the 2016 season with two scrimmages on Aug. 7, but dropped both of them.
    The Knights first played the Madison Central Indians and lost 6-2. Alan Guzman and Colby Hood each had one goal in the match as the Knights fell behind 5-0 by halftime.
    "To be honest, we were just asleep," Knights Head Coach Greg Conley said. "We did not respond well at all and were not prepared. However, eventually, we came out of it after halftime and played much better in the second half."

  • Tee Time: A golfer’s dream: A...

    By Dennis George
    Golf columnist

    It’s one of the great golf commercials of all time.
    A young man is playing by himself late one evening and tees his ball up on a par-3 hole. He crisply hits an iron shot onto the green, and thinks it goes into the hole.
    He straps his clubs onto his shoulder and runs towards the green. As he approaches it, he anxiously looks for his ball and slowly walks towards the cup. He picks his ball out of the hole, and looks around, seeing no one.

  • Rio 2016

    The 2016 Summer Olympics officially got underway in Rio de Janeiro on Aug. 5, and will continue until Aug. 21. For 16 days, more than 11,000 athletes will represent their country in 306 events, and will look to claim gold in their respective events. As of Sunday evening, Australia had received the most gold medals with three but the U.S. was tied with a host of other countries with seven total metals (these figures, of course, will change). Kosovo also made a little history of its own by winning its first-ever medal in any Olympic Games (and for good measure, it was gold).
