  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights ring in Christmas at Warren East tourney

    Some time has passed since the Marion County Knights had a start like this.

    Go back to the 2011-12 season when Marion County started off 6-1 and went on to win the district title.

    This season, the Knights have eclipsed that start, rumbling to an 8-1 record and winning seven games by double-digits. The Knights’ lone setback is a 77-67 loss to perennial region power Central Hardin earlier this month.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights look to bounce back from first loss

    Bethlehem handed Marion County its first loss on the season.

    Now the Lady Knights have a chance to hand Bethlehem their first loss this season.

    After meeting up in the Autism Classic Saturday, Marion County and Bethlehem square off again at 2:45 p.m., tomorrow, in the LaRue County Lady Hawks Holiday Classic.

  • Aquaknights hit pool for first meet of the season

    After practicing and waiting for some time, the Marion County Aquaknights were finally able to hit the pool for their first meet this season against Russell County at Russell County High School on Dec. 4.

    Being the first meet of the year, Marion County Head Coach Alex Meade knew his team would make mistakes.

  • Head Football Coach Allen Harmon is staying put

    Allen Harmon will be the head coach for the Marion County Knights when the 2019 season begins.

  • Girls basketball: Lady Knights continue undefeated start

    Two more wins this week have given the Marion County Lady Knights a perfect 5-0 record. Still, the Lady Knights are far from perfect.

  • Basketball: Knights, Eagles square off in district battle

    The start to this season has been one to remember for the Marion County Knights, and Head Coach Montrelle Irvin sure is happy with how the Knights are playing this season.

    “We play as a unit,” Irvin said. “No one care really about scoring. Nobody cares about stats. These guys just want to win. That’s the main thing. I really thought we were a year away from doing something like this, but these guys really came together this year and made some goals. They’re trying to do something special this year.”

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights hungry for win against Indians

    Zion Harmon is gone. Corey Melton is gone. Dre Boyd is gone.

    What’s not gone is Marion County’s burning desire to finally grab a win over the Adair County Indians, and the Knights’ first chance to get it comes at 8 p.m., Eastern, Friday, at the Roby Dome.

    Since upsetting Adair County 68-57 in the district tournament on Feb. 25, 2016, Marion County has been blanked by the Indians, losing five straight. That losing streak includes a heartbreaking 79-77 loss in January of this year and an 86-76 loss in last season’s district tournament.

  • GIRLS BASKETBALL: Lady Knights off to undefeated start

    Defense has been the name of the game for the Marion County Lady Knights. Through three games, Marion County is allowing a mere 29.7 points per game and is off to a perfect 3-0 start.

    “3-0 is pretty important,” Head Coach Kelly Wood said. “You want to start well. I’ve been doing this a long time and I know it’s not a sprint. It’s a marathon. We got to continue to get better and not rest on what we’ve accomplished in one week.”

    Wood complimented his players and the fan support Marion County has received this season.

  • What’s the next step?

    “What direction is this team heading in?”

    That was the question posed by Marion County Football Boosters President John Reed to Marion County High School Principal Thad Elmore at a public forum Monday evening in the high school cafeteria.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Knights face rival Commanders in home opener

    After the season opener against Bardstown last night, the Marion County Knights play host to rival Washington County in the Border War at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Roby Dome.

    The Commanders finished last season with a 17-13 record and fell to Bethlehem 59-56 in the district tournament. However, they swept the season series against Marion with 74-65 and 65-61 wins.

    Montrelle Irvin and the Knights hope to get a marquee win early this season over a big rival in the Border War.
