    After wrapping up play within the 20th District with a 4-5 record, the Marion County Knights now sit at 9-10 with roughly a month to go before the district tournament begins at Campbellsville High School. Marion County, close to getting its record to .500, has games coming up against the North Hardin Trojans, the Meade County Green Wave and the Boyle County Rebels.
    Marion County welcomes North Hardin to Dave Hourigan Field at 6 p.m., May 3. North Hardin grabbed an 11-1 win over John Hardin in district action Thursday and two wins over Madisonville-North Hopkins.

  • Never givin’ up

    Watch enough sports games or follow sports long enough and you’ll eventually see a struggle. When players or sports figures are confronted with a struggle, they can fight back, overcome the obstacle and persevere through the difficulty. Their other option is to shy away from the challenge, ignore the problem and collapse under the pressure.

  • MCHS students organize Olivia...

    Marion County High School will have an Olivia Ford Memorial ceremony at the school's softball field prior to the home softball game May 4 at 6 p.m.
    Ford, who was set to graduate this year, passed away in February in a car accident.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Knights play one...

    This one’s for Olivia Ford.
    Just over two months after the former Little League softball player was killed in a vehicle accident, the Marion County Lady Knights will honor Ford before their game at Talley Field against the Nelson County Lady Cardinals on Friday.
    The Lady Knights were going to play the Russell County Lakers but Russell County has to make up a district game against Metcalfe County. Lady Knights Head Coach Erin Benton said rescheduling the game is in the works.

  • TENNIS: Cassidy repeats in...

    It was a tale of two teams for Marion County at the Heartland Conference meet. The girls? Fantastic, according to their coach. The boys? Struggling and searching for answers.
    Ireland Cassidy repeated as singles champ for the girls, Cara Piekarski and Otoka Ishii both made it to the finals in doubles and Bryce Spalding made the only finals appearance for the boys at the Heartland Conference meet April 16-17.

  • TRACK AND FIELD: Marion County...

    Before a pair of meets this week, Marion County had only participated in two meets, having to dodge rain, storms and just about everything in between. The two meets this week - the Danville All-Comers on April 24 and the Blue Raider Rumble at Lindsey Wilson College Friday - gave the Knights some much-needed track action with the regional meet on the horizon.
    At the Blue Raider Rumble, the Marion County girls finished in last place out of 16 teams while the boys placed ninth out of 17 teams.

  • Vaught’s Views: Freddie Maggard...

    By Larry Vaught

    One extra benefit from having former Kentucky quarterback Freddie Maggard as the director of player development for the UK football team could be an uptick in in-state recruiting.

  • Lady Knights to face Nelson and...

    Even though Marion County’s 10-game win streak ended on Friday in a 2-1 loss to North Hardin, the Lady Knights are proving they can make some noise within the Fifth Region. Marion County is currently 10-3, giving them the second best win percentage in the region behind Green County (11-3). Hart County (9-3) is third while Central Hardin (14-6) is fourth.

  • Knights look to extend winning...

    The Marion County Knights felt good snapping a five-game skid on Thursday in Columbia. They felt really good after two wins in Shepherdsville to get them on a three-game winning streak.

    “They are starting to realize their true potential and if we can maintain that and build upon that, we can be very successful,” Marion County Head Coach Patrick Campbell said.
