    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.

    Marion County has bounced back well from a sluggish 0-2 start, shutting out Carroll County 3-0 on Talley Field on April 4.

  • 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.

    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...
