  • BOYS SOCCER: Knights-Tigers renew rivalry

    For the past two seasons, physicality, chippy play and red cards haven’t been in short supply when the Marion County Knights and Bardstown Tigers have faced off.
    Much of the same might be on the menu when the two foes play in Bardstown at 7:30 p.m., Aug. 28.
    Another tough match against Bardstown might just be what the doctor ordered for Marion County, who needs to play much more physical, says Head Coach Greg Conley.

  • VanWhy begins another chapter as cross country coach

    Harry VanWhy III has been on quite a journey in his life.

    He’s previously taught in three other school systems, coached several other sports and been up and down the beaten path many, many times.

    After living a life on the road, VanWhy hopes he’s finally found his home right here in Marion County. VanWhy begins another chapter in his life as the head coach for the cross country team, officially getting the nod on Aug. 3.

  • FOOTBALL: Knights shutout, blown out by LaRue County

    Marion County Head Coach Allen Harmon said Marion County had several chances to convert and put points on the scoreboard. The Knights failed to capitalize on those chances. LaRue County, meanwhile, took advantage of everything the Knights gave them. It all added up to a runaway victory for a high-flying Hawks squad.
    LaRue County flew away with a 48-0 victory on Friday in Hodgenville, reminiscent of their 49-8 trouncing of the Knights last season in Lebanon.

  • I am grateful

    New York Jets quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is quite thankful to be playing football. Not just because he loves the sport, but because his career almost ended.

    On Aug. 30, 2016, Bridgewater, who at the time played for the Minnesota Vikings, tore his ACL in his left knee and dislocated the knee joint. Quick action by the team’s training staff and doctors saved Bridgewater’s leg.

  • GIRLS SOCCER: Lady Knights look to keep up great start

    The last time Marion County had a winning record at any point in the season was all the way back in 2008 when Neil Payne was the head coach and most of the players on this year’s team were barely in elementary school.

    The season before under Brenda McIlvoy was the last season the Lady Knights ended with a winning record.

    After pitching two shutouts and scoring a combined 18 goals in three games last week, Marion County is off to a 2-1 start and hungry to keep on winning.
