  • Aquaknights notch another victory

    Like a knife  through butter, the Marion County Aquaknights cut through the water to take another win last week.
    On Jan. 28, the Aquaknights hosted and defeated Nelson County High School, Thomas Nelson High School, and Bethlehem High School.

    I can’t even imagine being a fan of an underdog team that makes it to final fight. That must be an especially epic battle.
