  • PRO FOOTBALL: Gaither living his...

    Chris Gaither has always had a dream of playing professional football. He might not be playing on Sundays in the NFL, but he’s still living out his dream and going for more.
    Gaither, a native of Lebanon, is currently playing for the Lexington Red Dragons, a professional football team within the Gridiron Developmental Football League (GDFL). The team was started in 2017 by Ryan Stark, who saw adult athletes in Lexington were traveling hours away to compete. He wanted to give them a chance to compete and play locally.

  • The Playoffs

    Jim Mora once said during a postgame press conference, “What’s that? Ah — Playoffs? Don’t talk about — playoffs? You kidding me? Playoffs?”
    That quote has become one of the most famous quotes. Yes, Jim Mora, I’m going to talk about the playoffs. Specifically, I’m talking about the NBA playoffs, which have reached the Conference Finals.
    The Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics are matched up in the Eastern Conference Finals while the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors battle in the Western Conference Finals.

  • Softball: Memorial ceremony was...

    Prior to the home softball game on May 7, Marion County High School held a memorial ceremony in honor of Olivia Ford who tragically lost her life earlier this year. The event included students speaking about their memories of Olivia, the unveiling of a commemorative painting, music by the Beatles (her favorite band), and a balloon release.
    For MCHS Principal Thad Elmore, the emotional event was more than just a chance to remember a former student -- it also illustrated the strength and compassion of MCHS students.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Knights look to...

    Over three years have passed since Adair County defeated Marion County.
    That win came all the way back on April 23, 2015 in a 10-6 win.
    Since then, Marion County has won eight straight against Adair County. Wins have been difficult enough but getting a run against the Lady Knights has proven to be even more difficult as Adair County (6-18, 0-6) last scored against the Lady Knights in a 5-1 loss on April 26, 2016.

  • TENNIS: Spalding going to state...

    Bryce Spalding might not have won the region but Spalding’s season survives for at least one more match.
    Spalding advanced to the semifinals of the regional meet at Freeman Lake Park in Elizabethtown last week and, in doing so, qualified for the state meet in boys singles.
    The state begins tomorrow at Shillito Park in Lexington. Play runs through Saturday.

  • TRACK AND FIELD: Knights send 4...

    The Marion County High School track and field team is sending four team members to the state meet.
    Alexis Hoppes, Nate Hoppes, Stephen Salgado and Jayla Cowherd are all going on state after their respective performances at the regional meet in Bardstown on May 8.
    “All season long we have been strong in the field events and it was no different at region. All of our state qualifiers were in the field,” Head Coach Daniel Johnson said.
