  • BASEBALL: Knights win series over Adair County

    Marion County has struggled through difficult losses, blown leads and rough stretches this season.

    After a 7-0 loss to the Adair County Indians on April 22, it looked like that theme would continue. However, bucking the trend, Marion County rattled off two impressive wins to take the season series over their district foes.

    “We were able to get a couple wins with good pitching and swung the bats really well,” junior Davis Rafferty said.

  • 1,000 strikeouts later

    It seems like Haley Mattingly has been playing softball forever.

    That’s because, in a way, she has.

    It also seems like Haley Mattingly has had a pretty good career as the Lady Knights’ pitcher, as well.

    “Pretty good” is an understatement. She’s been flat out dominant, quieting opposing bats and sending opposing batters back to their dugout empty-handed.

    Tim Davis believes there’s a time for everything to come to an end.

    After 24 seasons as Campbellsville’s boys’ basketball coach — and 36 total after 12 seasons at rival Marion County — Davis announced his retirement in a ceremony Monday morning, April 22, inside Paul J. Coop Gymnasium.

    Davis and his wife of 41 years, Joni, spent a lot of time this year discussing retirement and what that might look like.

    Lund, 80, recently let the members of the Marion County Industrial Foundation know that he was ready to begin the process of handing over the reins to someone else so that he can retire.

    Lewis, 26, previously worked as a Lebanon Police Officer, and also spent many years working on and off at the park. He said it’s where he feels most at home.

    “While I was there the first time, I was a groundskeeper, and I’ve always had a passion for the park,” said Lewis. “I enjoyed the people that I worked with and working under Matthew Mattingly.”
