  • TENNIS: Knights get one more in...

    The Marion County Knights were able to get one more match in before the regional meet, which began on Monday at Freeman Lake Park in Elizabethtown, against the Taylor County Cardinals last Wednesday at Miller Park in Campbellsville.
    The match was a make-up match from earlier in the season that was cancelled due to poor weather.
    “They played well,” Marion County coach Noah Swencki said. “Bryce got a good win, Ireland got another good win and our second doubles team for the girls got a good win. Colin got a good win too.”

    The Marion County Knights were able to get one last meet in before the Region 2, Class AA meet in Bardstown that began on Monday at the Bardstown Invitational.

  • Vaught’s Views: E.J. Montgomery...

    By Larry Vaught

    Even though most were speculating that Georgia forward E.J. Montgomery was going to pick Duke over Kentucky and others, Rivals.com writer Dan McDonald (@DMcDonaldsRivals on Twitter) was not surprised when he signed with John Calipari and Kentucky.
    “I had been tipped off by a source close to him a couple weeks ahead of time that Kentucky had the edge over Duke and UNC (North Carolina). I think his experience at the McDonald’s All-American Game finished it off,” McDonald said.

  • 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.
