    A little bit of old and a little bit of new will lead the Marion County High School boys’ basketball team this season.
    The little bit of old is the return of Chuck Elder, who spent last season on the bench after wrecking his knee during football season. The little bit of new is the start of former MCHS star Antony Epps’ career as a head coach.

  • Leathers retires from coaching at MCHS

    Freddie Leathers, Marion County High School boys’ golf head coach, recently decided to retire from coaching.
    Leathers, who resigned as the girls’ basketball head coach in 2006, has served 17 years as golf coach.
    “I was fortunate to have coached several outstanding young men and ladies, and to have made many new friends in those 17 years,” Leathers said.
    His career as a golf coach began in 1986, and lasted until 1995.

  • Knights lose heartbreaker to Fairdale

    Mistakes piled up for the Knights on Friday, so much that it cost them a chance to advance to the second round of the playoffs.

    Carlos Litsey batted down a Fairdale pass to the end zone on fourth and 22 with 2:19 to go, seemingly ensuring a 17-14 victory for the Knights.

    The Knights just needed to run the clock against Fairdale who had previously used all of their time outs.

    A mishandled hand off led to a Buster Hazelwood fumble with 1:37 to go in the game. Fairdale would recover on the Marion County 36-yard line.
