  • George shoots three under at...

    Someone needs to check Joseph George's clubs to see if they're smoking.

    The Marion County High School senior shot a 33 at Danville Country Club, three strokes under par, to lead the Knights to a one stroke 147 to 148 win over region heavyweight Danville High School in match play Thursday night.

    "It's the second lowest match score in my tenure," boys golf Head Coach Freddie Leathers said.

    Leathers said results for match play weren't recorded in the days of the current team's fathers, though he expects there were under par scores.

  • Cross country adds members,...

    State meet hopeful Matthew Mattingly got some help from some new legs on Tuesday night of last week at the LaRue County cross country meet.

    Marion County High School senior Matthew Mattingly finished fifth overall in the meet with a time of 13:49 but the biggest lift for him may have been the addition of two new teammates.

    Seniors Joseph George and Tommy Carrico, also members of the golf team, started running with the team last week.

  • Lady Knights rattle off wins

    The Marion County High School volleyball team put the brakes on a losing streak and rattled off four straight wins since Thursday.

    Last week started off poorly with a 2-1 (25-16, 17-25, 12-25) loss to Taylor County at home but quickly turned around with wins against Washington County twice (2-1, 2-0), Taylor County (2-0) and Meade County (2-0).

    Hosting the Marion County tournament proved invaluable for the Lady Knights as they defeated all comers in convincing fashion.

  • Knights slay Golden Lions

    The Marion County High School boys soccer team struck early and often in a onslaught against visiting Garrard County on Thursday night.

    Sophomore John Southall and senior Josh Reed led the way for Knights, both turning in hat tricks to pace all scorers.

    Head Coach Greg Conley noted that it was the best game Reed had played in quite a while, especially since being moved from defender to midfield this season.

    "He stepped in and scored three goals from 30 plus yards out," Conley said.

  • Highs and lows

    Due to a reporter's error, last week's boys golf results were inadvertently left out. Those results can be found in this story.

    A week after recording their lowest score in school history, the Marion County High School boys golf team shot a season high 332 in the Tates Creek Invitational.

    "It wasn't our kind of golf course. We're looking forward to next tournament," boys golf Head Coach Freddie Leathers said.

    Tates Creek's tight course left several teams scrambling, unable to control the ball.

  • Lady Knights net first win

    As Head Coach Neil Payne said, the Marion County High School girls soccer team finally got the monkey off their backs.

    The Lady Knights drilled district opponent Garrard County High School 2-0 on Thursday night for their first win of the season in front of a home crowd.

  • Record breakers

    For the Marion County High School boys golf team, 305 is the magic number.

    Head Coach Freddie Leathers has poured over the records for the golf team has reported that the 305 his team shot last weekend at the Garrard County Invitational is the lowest recorded score he can find by any Marion County team, beating out a 307 shot by the 1977 team in their conference tournament.

    Leathers said last year this same team set a school record for the lowest team score in regional play with a 317. He said the lowest tournament score recorded in MCHS history before 2008 was a 320.

  • In the trenches

    In one of the most physical high school football games many fans had ever seen, the Bell County Bobcats walked off John J. Boswell Field victorious Saturday night. However, the defending state champs didn't leave without a scare.

    "There was a lot of hitting going on last night. A lot of fans came up to me afterwards and said that's as physical a high school football game as they've seen," Head Coach Jeff Robbins said.
