  • Think pink

     Pink, what a controversial color. I remember that as a boy, pink was considered unmanly. In fact, by some’s standards, it was downright girly. If you were a boy and wore pink, you were subject to some serious ridicule and possibly physical assault by your male counterparts. 

    Yeah, back then wearing pink was just not allowed if you were a boy.

    Times have changed a bit though. Many men wear pink, and that’s OK!

  • Knights are ‘Saving Second Base’

    The Marion County Knights hosted their inaugural Saving Second Base Invitational to raise breast cancer awareness last week.

    April 25 and 26, the Knights played in three games to honor family and friends who have had breast cancer. 

    “We wanted to do something to show support for them,” Knights Coach Patrick Campbell said. 

  • Marion County competes at...

    The Marion County High School track team returned from the Panther Twilight Invitational without an overall top 10 performance from either the boys or girls teams on April 25. The girls placed 19th and the boys placed 18th in the competition. 

    In an email sent, MCHS Track Coach Daniel Johnson wrote that the team just did not have the numbers and they were facing some stiff competition in the meet. Several students from other schools met the national silver standard with their performances at the meet. 

  • No hitter winner

     While Marion County Lady Knights freshman pitcher Allison Maupin pitched a no hitter against the Thomas Nelson Generals on April 24, another Marion County young athlete did the same thing last week.

    On April 23, Carly Jo Thomas, a sixth grade pitcher for the Lebanon Middle School softball team pitched a no-hit, perfect game against the Spencer County Bears. 

    Her coach, Troy Overstreet, was happy with the accomplishment.

  • One more shot at turkeys

     Well, there’s one more weekend of turkey season left, so it’s not looking good. Course when you’re hunting from a recliner you don’t expect much.

    Seems like I’ll go out, spend a day hunting then spending several days getting over the reaction to the allergies. Much as I love the outdoors, it seems like I’m allergic to most everything out there.

    Grass, dust, and leaf mold are a few of my favorites!

  • Outstanding athlete getting...

    A 17-year-old boy stands with a straight face. His sharp stare is one that’s been honed by the experience of both victory and defeat.

    On the mound he cocks his arm back, ready to fire. With a snap forward, he throws a pitch —  in the blink of an eye, the ball rips past his target.

    It’s just one of many strikeouts and another tally in his stat book.

  • Knights win conference tennis...

    The Marion County boys tennis team won the Heartland Conference tournament last week, and the Lady Knights finished as the conference runner-up.

    In the boys tournament, Marion County’s Alex Spalding defeated his teammate, Ryker Cassidy, in the boys singles championship in the Heartland Conference tournament last week. Spalding also won the title last year and in 2012.
