  • SOFTBALL: Marion County shuts...

    Marion County has continued its run of dominance in district games this season. 
    Haley Mattingly struck out 14 and allowed only four hits as she recorded her 10th win and eighth shutout this season in the Lady Knights' 6-0 win against Adair County (4-15. 1-5) on April 25. 

  • TENNIS: Boys tennis team wins...

    Marion County's rough ending to the season is a distant memory. 
    Four Knights won their respective events at the Heartland Conference tournament April 24-25, with the boys winning the overall conference title and the girls finishing as overall runners-up.

  • Male track team finishes third...

    Marion County's male athletes finished third and Stephen Salgado improved his triple jump by three feet to set a new personal of 42' 1" in the Cardinal Classic at Nelson County High School on April 25. 
    The new personal record put Salgado within a foot of the school record. 

  • Vaught’s Views: Kash Daniel...

    By Larry Vaught

    Kash Daniel has a lot of lofty goals for himself during his sophomore season at Kentucky and has them posted on his apartment wall so he sees them every night.
    He wants to bench press 405 pounds and squat 550. He wants to play on every special team UK has. He wants to start at linebacker even though UK returns linebackers Jordan Jones and Courtney Love, its top two tacklers from last year.
    Daniel also wants to make a national name for himself after making 19 tackles in 13 games last year.

  • BASEBALL: Knights fall in extras...

    In the bottom of the fourth, Mother Nature made an unexpected visit to Dave Hourigan Field April 18. First, lightning stopped a scoreless, defensive struggle between Marion County and Campbellsville, then rain suspended the game until the next evening. Wednesday evening, the Eagles (10-7, 3-1) defeated district rival Marion County 1-0, scoring the only run of the game in the ninth inning when Trayce Mattingly laid down a squeeze bunt and brought John Orberson home.

  • Never saw it coming

    This team hadn't lost a game in 865 days. When they recorded their 100th consecutive win against South Carolina Feb. 13 during a winning streak that spanned 111 games, they were beating teams by an average margin of 38.4 points. A heart-breaking loss prevented this team from vying for a chance at a fifth straight championship title last month.
