  • Never too late

    Andre Ingram had been in the NBA’s G-League for more than a decade, clinching the league record for most three-pointers made. He traveled by bus to games, staying in affordable hotel rooms on a meager salary.
    After a decade of G-League time - where he also tutored students in math on the side - Ingram finally got the call to go to the pros, suiting up for the Los Angeles back on April 10 in his first ever NBA game. As Ingram waited at the scorer’s table to get into the game, Chris Paul, six months older than Ingram, greeted him.

  • SOFTBALL: Red hot Lady Knights...

    Haley Mattingly had three perfect games last season. This season she’s already got two.
    Mattingly struck out 27 batters last week and didn’t give up a single earned run. She did not pitch against Danville on April 12, getting a day to rest. She notched perfect games against Adair County and Elizabethtown.

  • TRACK AND FIELD: Knights and...

    The Marion County boys and girls track teams both finished fifth at the Thomas Nelson All-Comers Meet on April 10. The boys tallied a total of 50 points while the girls put up 37. Bardstown won both the boys and girls sides in the meet, with 140 points in the girls division and 186 in the boys.
    “It was first meet after spring break. Kids were glad to get out and compete again. It was several kids’ first meet of the season,” Marion County Coach Daniel Johnson said.

  • Vaught’s Views: Perception has...

    By Larry Vaught

    Perception is a major component of college gymnastics. Some might argue it’s that way with every college sport where top programs always seem to get more breaks.
    Kentucky gymnastics has been fighting the perception that it is not one of the top programs in the country — or the Southeastern Conference.  However, UK is doing all it can to change that.
    Kentucky will be competing in the nationals in St. Louis Friday for the first time in school history after its second-place finish in the Minnesota Region.

  • BASEBALL: Knights face defending...

    The Marion County Knights are looking to get back on track after coming up winless during their Spring Break trip to Historic Dodgertown at Vero Beach, Florida, with their play on the Florida coast putting them at 2-4. Marion County got some valuable experience against tough competition and will look to use that to make adjustments and improve as a team.
    Patrick Campbell’s squad has since returned home to Kentucky and begun regular season district play, which will put Marion County up against their district rivals three times each over the next few weeks.

  • 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.
