  • Kings and Queens of the Court

    Donte DiVincenzo. Arike Ogunbowale. How’s that for some unique names?
    Unique last names aren’t the only things those two have become known for. Both DiVincenzo and Ogunbowale stole the show on college basketball’s biggest stages- the national championship games, helping to lead their squads to a national title. Ogunbowale was the hero in the women’s national title games while DiVincenzo stole the spotlight in the men’s title game.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Knights are...

    Marion County has bounced back well from a sluggish 0-2 start, shutting out Carroll County 3-0 on Talley Field on April 4. The win extended the Lady Knights’ winning-streak to three and lifted their record to 3-2. The win streak also includes a 6-0 shutout at Thomas Nelson and an 11-1 victory against Presentation in Brandenburg.

  • TENNIS: Knights prepare for...

    Marion County Head Coach Noah Swencki said the Knights’ lack of matches have hurt his team’s preparation for the Heartland Conference meet.
    “[We’re] not very prepared because we haven’t had any matches,” he said. The Knights have had only three matches so far this season, with the team seeing several matches called off due to the rain and poor weather.

  • TRACK AND FIELD: Knights get 7...

    The Marion County Knights received seven first or second place finishes at the Thomas Nelson All-Comers meet on March 27.

  • Vaught’s Views:Could UK signee...

    By Larry Vaught

    How good is Kentucky signee Tyler Herro?
    The 6-5 guard from Whitnall High School in Greenfield, Wis., has a fan in Rivals.com recruiting writer Krysten Peek.
    “He is the best shooter in the (2018 recruiting) class from beyond the arc (3-point line),” said Peek. “He could be the best pure scorer in the class.
    “I saw him in one workout where he did not miss a single shot. He can shoot a 3 like a lay-up. He is just a pure shooter and there are not many of them out there.”

  • Knights begin district play...

    The road to the coveted top seed in the 20th District Tournament begins now. The Knights will wrap up their trip to Dodgertown in Florida with games against Letcher County Central and Springboro today and a game against Greenup County Friday. After those games, the Knights will set their sights on district play, which kicks off for Marion County against the Taylor County Cardinals in a three-game series.

  • Lady Knights begin district play...

    Marion County has been in practice a lot more than in games. Rainy weather and soaked fields have cancelled a slew of games for the Lady Knights, who improved to 2-2 after a 6-0 victory over Thomas Nelson last week.

  • Marion County beats rain for two...

    The rain managed to hold off long enough to allow Marion County to get two tennis matches in before the team takes time off the court for Spring Break.

    Marion County began last week against a rebuilding Nelson County team at Graham Memorial Park.

    “We expected to win that one,” Marion County coach Noah Swencki said. “They’re trying to rebuild so they had a bunch of new players. Not much experience. It was pretty one-sided.”

  • Down to two

    And then there were two.

    After Saturday’s Final Four at the Alamodome in San Antonio, two teams were left standing in the NCAA Tournament. Those two squads - the Michigan Wolverines and Villanova Wildcats - faced off Monday night for the national championship.
