  • Record number of runners in 2012...

    Saturday's 2012 Farmers National Bank 5K Pokey Pig Run/Walk had 547 runners, easily surpassing the previous mark for the most participants the race has ever had. Nearly 200 more participants were in the 2012 field over last year.

    Runners were broken down into 20 different groups based on age groups. The overall winner of the race was 33-year-old Yasunori Wantanbe from Lebanon.  Wantanbe finished the course in 18:57.2. The first female to cross the finish line was 11-year-old Laurel Brahm. Brahm finished the course in 22:43.2, and was 27th overall.

  • Football Knights take second win

    The Marion County High School football team hit the road Friday evening to take on Taylor County.

  • Golf competes in regionals

    The golf teams at Marion County High School competed in regional competition Monday and Tuesday of last week. Brianna Reynolds, the lone girl to play for Marion County, traveled to Fort Knox to compete on Monday. She finished in 17th place overall out of 60 competitors by shooting a 102.

    "She had a good year overall and really improved from the previous season," Head Coach Chad Spalding said. "We hope to find some more girl golfers to go along with her next season so we can compete as a team."

  • Postseason push

    It may seem like a strange time of year to be talking about the postseason.  After all, it is still September. The NFL season has just begun and won't be heading into the postseason until after the turn of the New Year. College football is in the same boat, and basketball seasons haven't started yet. The closest sport preparing to head into postseason is Major League Baseball, but that is not the sport I'm talking about.

  • Cross country team starts out...

    The Marion County High School Cross Country team has competed in three meets during their season, and has four more meets scheduled before heading into postseason competition.
    "We've started the season well, and I'm pleased with the number of kids we've had out," Head Coach Daniel Johnson said.
