    Before a pair of meets this week, Marion County had only participated in two meets, having to dodge rain, storms and just about everything in between. The two meets this week - the Danville All-Comers on April 24 and the Blue Raider Rumble at Lindsey Wilson College Friday - gave the Knights some much-needed track action with the regional meet on the horizon.
    At the Blue Raider Rumble, the Marion County girls finished in last place out of 16 teams while the boys placed ninth out of 17 teams.
