  • New track almost complete at MCHS

    The track at Marion County High School is finally receiving some much-needed renovations.

According to Marion County Public Schools Facilities and Transportation Director Scott Spalding, the new surface is complete, and striping on the new track surface should be completed this week.

    By Larry Vaught

    Maci Morris’ freshman year at the University of Kentucky was everything she “hoped for” and the coaching staff literally had to make her go home during breaks because the dorms closed.
    However, the next year there was a “little bit of craziness” that led to six players transferring, one player being dismissed from the team, two assistant coaches resign, one assistant get fired and two recruits decommit during the 2015-16 season.

  • Taking the first step to...

    Alan Reed has grown up immersed in NASCAR and racing. From his early years, Reed has loved the sport, and that love has only grown and grown as he has gotten older.

    Reed has always had an eye for his ultimate dream job within the sport - design engineering — and he took the first step toward that dream job two weeks ago.

    On July 17, Reed, a 2011 graduate of Marion County High School and a Marion County native, officially began a new job at Roush-Fenway Racing in Concord, North Carolina.

  • Local baseball team enjoys...

    The Campbellsville All-Stars, a 12U Cal Ripken team, recently ended a successful season at the regional tournament in Crown Point, Indiana.

    The team, which consists of 12 players, won the state title this season, defeating Jessamine County 11-3 to win the state title. The team competed at the state tournament July 5-8 at Shillito Park in Lexington. Nine teams competed at the state tournament.

    “Great bunch of guys,” Head Coach Mark Kearney said. “They played hard, lot of heart, and it was a lot of fun.”

  • Best rivalries

    The essence of sports is competition. Two teams are fighting hard for victory, though victory can only be assured to one. Over the years, this unyielding desire to win has created some of sport’s most famous and passionate rivalries.

    Some rivalries are born out of bad blood, while others can trace their roots to famous events in American history. Other rivalries resulted from two teams’ close proximity to one another.

  • First-ever alumni tournament is...

    After much anticipation and excitement, the first-ever Marion County High School Alumni Volleyball Tournament took place Friday evening at Roby Dome, and according to Head Coach David Hibbard, the inaugural tournament was a big success.

    The tournament drew 34 former Marion County players who played on five teams. Team Mama defeated Team Shelby in two sets (25-20, 25-18) in the championship to win the inaugural tournament.

  • SOFTBALL: All-Stars finish 1-2...

    The Marion County 10-12 Softball All-Stars were a little tired when their tournament game against Michigan came around. Michigan took full advantage, landing a decisive punch early and derailing Marion County’s chance to move on.

    Michigan struck for six runs in the bottom of the first and took a 12-4 victory on Thursday in tournament play at the Central Region Tournament in Indianapolis.

    Head Coach Jim Reed said he was worried about fatigue heading into the game against Michigan.

  • ‘Ultimate competitor’ who might...

    By Larry Vaught

    During the late February national football signing period Kentucky added only one player — Pennsylvania cornerback M.J. Devonshire. Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said then that Devonshire had “great size, great speed” with the versatility to play either offense or defense.

    Considering the early signees Kentucky had, not a lot of attention was paid to the addition of the 5-11, 180-pound Devonshire. However, he might be a name to remember when Kentucky starts preseason practice.
