  • Holding Court

    On Oct. 22, Katie George, the University of Louisville Lady Cardinals volleyball team setter, paid a visit to St. Charles Middle School in Lebanon. George, who is the starting setter for the Lady Cardinals, talked with the children about various subjects from goal setting and self-confidence, to the importance of education. Katie George is the granddaughter to Dr. Salem George and the daughter of Tim George. 

  • Another look at deer season

    I made a mistake in last week’s article when I said modern gun season ran from Nov. 8 through Nov. 23. 

    It does in Zones 1 and 2. However, Marion County is in Zone 3, which puts our season from Nov. 8-17. That’s a 10-day season for us.

    A special night turned sour when the Marion County Knights had their senior night stripped away from them on Oct. 17, when the Knights (5-3) hosted and fell to the Boyle County Rebels, 38-12.

     

    To start the evening. Knights Coach Jeff Robbins presented footballs to the seniors on the team. Afterwards, the team along with others took time to honor  Robbins with a huddle on the edge of the field.

  • ‘Save tha tatas’

     Big or small, save them all! 

    In case you didn’t know, October is breast cancer awareness month. Whether it’s breast cancer awareness, or autism awareness, Marion County High School is no stranger to hosting events for a good cause. 

    In fact, it seems like they do it every season.

  • District defeat: Soccer Knights...

    The Marion County Knights ended their season after losing their first game of the 18th District tournament on Oct. 14.

    Despite taking a 2-0 lead, the Knights were defeated by the LaRue County Hawks for the second time this season, 3-2.

  • Soccer: Taylor County defeats...

    The Marion County Lady Knights’ season came to a close when they were shutout by the Taylor County Lady Cardinals 8-0 in their first round of the 18th district tournament on Oct. 16. 

    With their final game aside, Lady Knights Coach Derek Cissell said he wasn’t disappointed with the team’s performance. 

  • Volleyball: Raising awareness

    In typical Marion County High School fashion, the Marion County Lady Knights hosted a breast cancer awareness event on Oct. 16.

    The event featured the Lady Knights (18-16) battling it out with the Pulaski County Lady Maroons (22-12). 

    Unfortunately, Marion County lost in four heated sets, 30-28, 19-25, 25-21, 26-24.

  • Whispers, snacks and a deer

    I had a most interesting weekend. Since I didn’t have an opportunity to take a grandson hunting during the youth weekend, I decided the early muzzleloader season would be a good “make up” period.
