I assure you of that. You will get all three from the coaching staff. I hope to instill that in you, and you give that to each other.”

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Knights’ season ends in loss to Green in region

    Give any team an extra opportunity, they might make you pay. Give Green County an extra opportunity, and they will definitely make you pay.

    The Marion County Lady Knights committed six errors, and the Green County Lady Dragons took full advantage in a 9-5 win over Marion County in the regional tournament at Central Hardin on May 27.

    “That game was winnable,” freshman Alex Wheeler said, “but we made a couple of errors that cost us. Most of the runs they scored were on errors, and it put everybody down.”
