  • Marion County athletes compete...

    This is a corrected version of the story.

    Marion County finished its second track meet of the season when it competed in the Boyle County All-comers Meet on March 27. While the school did not take a top spot in the crowded competition, several MCHS students produced top 10 performances. 

    Track Coach Daniel Johnson said that despite poor weather conditions, the meet went very well and he would like to get some of the younger team members in the top 10 in future meets. 

  • Marion County serves up two wins...

    The Marion County Knights and Lady Knights saw action last week when they took a heaping handful of wins against the Campbellsville Eagles and Lady Eagles, Adair County Lady Indians, and Danville Admirals.

    On March 28, the Knights and Lady Knights took on the Eagles and Lady Eagles. The Knights walked away with all six wins in singles against the Eagles but fell in three straight doubles matches. 

  • Former Lady Knights stars still...

    Marion County Lady Knights basketball fans may have one heck of a ride this season, but they may be interested or curious as to how some of the team’s former stars are faring away from home.

    The answer is simple, they’re still shining bright – because whether at home or abroad, they’re still playing basketball. 

  • First bass tournament winners...

     In case you wondered why I didn’t put the winners of last week’s Mid-KY Bass Anglers Tournament, there’s a simple explanation.

    As I was writing my mind got side-tracked and I forgot. Oh, I could have come up with something that would’ve been believable. But, those who know me know I am, at best, a little “flighty”, so just saying “I forgot” is still the most believable.

    Anyway, I forgot!

  • Lady Knights top Lady Lions in...

     The Marion County Lady Knights’ week of play was mostly washed out as cold weather and rain caused game after game to be canceled. In total, the Lady Knights lost the opportunity to play five games, four of which were in the Russell County Lady Laker Classic last weekend. 

    Though tourney play was not an option, the Lady Knights managed to squeeze in one game on March 27 against the Garrard County Lady Lions (4-1). There, the Lady Knights (3-1) defeated the visiting Lady Lions, 4-1, in seven innings. 

  • Local filly earns two awards

     Recently, Precocious Beauty, a filly bred in Marion County by Jim Avritt Sr. and LaVerne Avritt, received two prestigious award for pacing horses.

    Precocious Beauty received the 2013 Dan Patch Award for 2-year-old pacing filly from the United States Harness Writers. and the O’Brien Award for a 2-year-old pacing filly with at least three starts in Canada.

  • Wildlife feeding prohibited...

     Fish and Wildlife Officer B.J. McCoy is reminding the public that it is illegal to feed wildlife with grass, seed or manufactured animal feed in the area outside your home until May 31. He noted that spring turkey season is here, and the public should refresh itself on laws related to “baiting” wild turkeys.

  • Are more helmets needed?

     I usually start these things off with “What a week!” or some corny thing like that, but I won’t this time. Nope, things this week are a bit serious, in fact.

    The Knights baseball opened its season March 19 by defeating the Washington County Commanders, 4-3, at Idle Park in Springfield. 

  • First tourney not bad, but cold

    Sunday, March 23, was the first tournament for the Mid-KY Bass Anglers 2014 season.

    The turnout was good with 10 boats and 19 anglers. One guy fishing by himself gave us the odd number of anglers.

    Not bad for a tournament held on a frigid March day! It was bitter cold, but it neither rained nor snowed, so we didn’t complain “too” much.
