  • Lancaster, Simpson, Robbins...

    Charles Lancaster, Sr., Todd Simpson and the late Jeff Robbins were inducted into the Hall of Fame before the football team’s district game against the Mercer County Titans on Friday - a 48-20 loss for the Knights.
    Lancaster has been the voice of Marion County football for more than 40 years. He’s been involved football longer than that, serving as an announcer at St. Joseph’s College - which closed in May - in Indiana from 1954-58. He also played St. Augustine School from 1952-54.

    How could Kentucky not have seen an uncovered Florida receiver on two different plays that gave the Gators two easy touchdowns? How could no one on the field seen a receiver waving his arms for the football because no one was lined up close to him? How could 11 UK staff members in the press box not noticed or how could no one on the UK sideline not seen a player standing five yards from them with no one on him?

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Knights sweep...

    Top to bottom, start to finish, Marion County was dominant.
    The Lady Knights turned in one of their most dominant performances this season, defeating a struggling Adair County squad in three sets, 25-15, 25-10, 25-12, at the Roby Dome last Monday. The win gave Marion County a sweep of the regular season series against the Lady Indians.
    “We knew this wouldn’t be much of a contest so we worked on some of our new offensive schemes and tried out some different personnel groups,” Marion County Head Coach David Hibbard said.

    No goal line stands this time. No comebacks this go around.
    In a dominating performance Friday in Springfield, the Washington County Commanders blew past the Marion County Knights 42-6, sending the Knights to an 0-5 start.
    “We didn’t play well in any facet of the game, on offense, defense or special teams,” Marion County Head Coach Allen Harmon said. “We didn’t execute.”

    For the entire history of Major League Baseball, teams have gone on streaks of all kinds - losing, winning, long and short.

    He’s not flashy or overly dramatic, but just being himself worked perfectly for Rob Bromley at WKYT-TV (Channel 27) in Lexington for just over 40 years.
    That run ends Sept. 29 when Bromley retires after doing what he came to love — covering University of Kentucky sports.
