  • COLUMN: The right choice

    In my column, “Over a helmet,” that appeared in the Aug. 21 edition of the Enterprise, I railed against professional athletes in my weekly column, decrying them as overpaid crybabies only concerned with money and ungrateful for the blessings they have.
    Last week, I was reminded my harsh assessment of professional athletes should never be a generalization of all athletes.

  • VAUGHT'S VIEWS: Is John...

    By Larry Vaught

    Recently, a long-time University of Kentucky fan who has season tickets to both men’s basketball and football games posed a question that I was not sure how to answer. She wondered who I thought was the better recruiter — John Calipari or Vince Marrow.

  • FOOTBALL: A new era?

    John Adams hauled in a fourth-quarter interception Friday evening — his second pick on the night, then raced for a pick-six, extinguishing the last glimmer of hope for the Western Warriors in the Knights’ season opener.

    Later, with the win assured and the seconds ticking away, Mason Sullivan took a knee, unleashing an epic celebration that makes one wonder: Is a new era of Marion County football in the making?

  • BOYS SOCCER: Knights fall in...

    The Marion County Knights were on their heels for most of the first half on Saturday against the Boyle County Rebels. Still, they trailed only 1-0 and were very much in the game.

    Then, Tanner Roeder delivered the tying goal.

    For the Knights, new life. New energy. New game.

    With about a minute left in regulation, Jessy Castillo had his hands on a save, only to see it slip out of his hands and right to a Boyle County player, who punched it in for a 2-1 Rebels victory at Elmer George Field.

  • GIRLS SOCCER: Lady Knights win...

    The first week of the season was not the start Marion County had pictured.

    The second week was a whole different story.

    With wins over Ft. Knox and Holy Cross-Louisville, the Lady Knights are back to .500.

    “We played two great games this week,” said Madi Hardin, who has a team-leading five goals in four games. “We’ve been stressing to play for each other, not just with. I feel that us being able to trust each other more on the field has really gave us the edge we needed.”

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Knights go 1-1...


    David Hibbard said he has been pleased with Marion County’s performance after two games, even though one of those games ended in a loss.

    “After the first week, I am pleased with the energy, toughness and competitive fire we are bringing when we step on the floor,” the veteran coach said.

  • CROSS COUNTRY: Cross country...

    Cross Country Head Coach Harry VanWhy III said the Marion County cross country team is young this season.

    The Knights opened their season on Aug. 22 at the Green County All-Comers meet, with 12 schools competing.

    “For as small as we are, I think we ran excellent,” VanWhy said. “We have three eighth-graders, two seventh graders and one high school senior. Very young. We’re a very young team, and hopefully, if we can hold on to those athletes and recruit more for next year, I think we’ll be in good shape in the next few years.”

  • COLUMN: Excited about the unknown

    Life is full of unknowns, and there’s no way to predict how each day will turn out for us. However, that is what makes life what it is. If we knew how each day would turn out, life wouldn’t be nearly as enjoyable. Life’s joys come from what is unpredictable and unknown.
