  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights’...

    The No. 2 team in the Fifth Region proved to be too much for the Lady Knights at the end.
    The Nelson County Lady Cardinals used a come-from-behind effort in the fourth quarter to sneak out of the Roby Dome with a 63-58 win Thursday evening and end Marion County's winning streak at six games.
    Nelson County's Marly Walls and Marion County's Haeli Howard went toe to toe in the clash, scoring 25 and 30, respectively. In the end, however, it was Nelson County that was celebrating as they improved to 18-2 on the season, while Marion County fell to 14-8.

    With a win against the Lady Cardinals on Feb. 3 at Taylor County, Marion County will finish undefeated in district play. But, it won't be easy to get the win, according to Lady Knights Head Coach Kenny Mills.
    "They're going to be ready," he said. "It's going to be a tough game over there in that environment, and we already know that going in. We're going to go over and try to play hard and play our good defense."

    "We performed well in this meet," Head Coach Katie Johnson said. "We were competing against bigger times at this meet, Going up against bigger teams is difficult, but we're small and mighty. We're a solid team this season."

    The former UK quarterback and current Kentucky Sports Radio football analyst pours over game film of potential recruits to arrive at his own recruiting opinions that have nothing to do with the star rankings assigned by recruiting analysts.
    As Kentucky coach Mark Stoops put together his 2017 class, Maggard liked it more and more.
