  • Two losses for Lady Knights

    Central Hardin visited the Marion County Lady Knights on Oct. 1 and returned home with a win. The Lady Bruins won the match in three sets, 25-17, 25-13, 25-20.

    “We couldn’t pass to save our lives,” Marion County Coach David Hibbard said.

    Nevertheless, Hibbard did see a bright spot for the Lady Knights. During the first half of the third set, Marion County was outplaying the Lady Bruins, even forcing them to take a timeout while trailing 17-12.

  • Another state record that just...

    Had a real interesting story from my friend Ed Heckel.

    Seems he was fishing the Kentucky River a few weeks ago when he apparently hooked into a monster. The fish stripped all the 25-pound test mono off his reel before breaking it.

    So, Ed lost all his fishing line, plus a $10 Muskie lure.

    The Muskie, about a 60-incher, which would be a state record, broke Ed’s heart with its departure.

  • Marion County closes season at...

    Marion County High school golfers ended their season at the Region 4 tournaments on Sept. 30 at Campbellsville Country Club (boys) and Oct. 1 at South Park Country Club in Louisville (girls).
    According to Marion County Coach Chad Spalding, it was a rough end to the season for the boys team.
    “It was a disappointing day for us,” he wrote in an email. “We simply played our worst 18 holes of the year.”
    There was one exception, however, Spalding wrote that Mason Gadberry turned in his best 18-hole performance of the fall. Gadberry led Marion County with an 84.

  • Back of the net

    Something has gotten into the Marion County boys soccer team and into the back of their opponents nets.
    In their past four games, Marion County has outscored its opponents 30-4. The Knights have scored nine goals or more three times in that stretch.
    It’s the kind of offensive outburst that should be a concern for future opponents.
    I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve only seen a little of the Knights in person, but what I saw Thursday (in a 9-1 win over Bullitt East) was a team that was focused, confident and aggressive.

  • District play begins Friday for...

    The Marion County Knights stood at 2-3 heading into last week’s bye week. At 7:30 p.m. Friday, the Knights open district play by hosting the Taylor County Cardinals.
    While the season has already been tough, Knights Coach Jeff Robbins is expecting it to get even tougher this month.
    “We definitely have an uphill battle coming at us the next few weeks,” he said.
