  • Knights return from bye week to...

    After a much-needed bye week, the Knights (1-6, 0-2) return to their home crowd to face district rival East Jessamine at 7:30 p.m., Friday, in Lebanon. The Knights’ final three games this season are all at home.

    “It’s always good to be at home,” Harmon said. “This year, the community has been really supportive of the team when we’re at home and the boys feed off that home crowd energy. We’re looking forward to being at home for three games.”

  • Lady Knights take the ‘w’ on...

    Pre-game was a time full of celebrations on Senior Night. Post-game was much the same.

    Marion County ended its regular season on the right note, taking a three-set (25-23, 25-17, 27-25) victory Thursday over the Campbellsville Lady Eagles at the Roby Dome.

  • MC drops season finale to John...

    Marion County was struggling on offense heading into its game against John Hardin.

    Those offensive woes continued as the Lady Knights fell 3-0 last Wednesday in Lebanon.

    “Going into the John Hardin game we were just trying some different lineup combinations,” Marion County Head Coach Daniel Johnson said. “Putting some kids in some spots they usually don’t play to try and get the offense sparked before district play next week.”

  • Knights come up just short on...

    After a stellar first half, Marion County just couldn’t close the deal.

    The Knights let a 2-0 lead slip away and allowed the Estill County Engineers to score three second-half goals in a 3-2 loss on Saturday on Senior Day.

    Before the game, seniors Hank Hardin, Bryce Barnett and Jose Barrios were honored. The Engineers (13-2-1) scored all three of their goals in the game’s final 15 minutes.

  • Knights take 27-7 loss to Colts

    Once again, there were opportunities there for the taking and Marion County just couldn’t take advantage of them. And once again, those squandered opportunities doomed Marion County as they fell 27-7 to the West Jessamine Colts on Friday in Nicholasville.

  • Lady Knights’ path to district...

    On Oct. 22, 2014, Marion County clinched their seventh-straight district title against the Taylor County Lady Cardinals in four sets at the Roby Dome.

    Since then, it’s been a hard, long climb back to the top for the Lady Knights, who have lost the last three district championship games to Taylor County.

  • Knights look to keep season...

    Marion County’s 2018 season has been full of struggles. They have endured long bouts of losing this season and they have struggled to score.

    However, the Knights have made steady improvement, and they hope it will result in a district win next week in the 18th District Tournament at Campbellsville High School.

    It’s a new venue for this year’s tournament as Marion County had hosted all 18th District Tournaments since district reorganization took place after the 2011 season.

  • Knights look to add district...

    Marion County is in the best position it’s been in for quite some time.

    They’re assured their first winning record in the regular season since 2007. They’re the fourth-best scoring team in the region.

    While they fell to LaRue County 2-1 and lost the top seed, they’re going into the 18th District feeling good about themselves.

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Coach Irvin is...

    Excitement.

    That’s how Montrelle Irvin is describing how he feels for the upcoming season, and for good reason. Irvin, entering his eighth season as Marion County’s head coach, returns several key players from last year’s squad and he also gains a few additional pieces that could prove very beneficial for the Knights.

    The Knights will dress 11 players on the varsity squad, but Irvin said more could be called up based on their play.
