    For the next few weeks, the Marion County High School girls soccer team will be hitting the road to get some games in.

    After today’s matchup with Bullitt Central, seven out of the next eight games for Marion County will be on the road. The lone home game between today and Sept. 10 is an afternoon match against Holy Cross (Louisville) on Aug. 25.

    Marion County Head Coach Daniel Johnson isn’t putting as much emphasis on the opponent as he is seeing each game as a chance for his team to grow and improve.

  • The journey of a lifetime

    She was thousands of miles from home. New places. New people. New everything really.

    But to Maddie Wood, she was right at home on the basketball court and surrounded by teammates she grew closer and closer with over the course of 10 days.

    From July 21-30, Wood traveled to Australia along with seven other girls basketball players, playing a total of five games.

    Wood’s team went 3-2 overall. They played one game in Sydney and four in Brisbane.

  • Beating the heat

    Sometimes, it takes a tragic and dramatic event - like a death - to spur change.

    Reflect back 10 years. What all has changed, both for the worst and best?

    For high school sports players, there’s one thing that stands out as being the best change in that timespan: guidelines on heat safety. And those guidelines are with us thanks to a tragic incident in 2008.

  • Lady Knights face big test in...

    The Marion County Lady Knights knew early in the season, they would face some rough times. Their youth would show. So would a lack of experience.

    The first district game for Marion County puts them in Campbellsville against the Taylor County Lady Cardinals at 7 p.m., Aug. 20.

  • FOOTBALL: Knights use scrimmage...

    The Marion County Knights looked to get some valuable preseason action in and get ready for the 2018 regular season when they traveled to Bardstown Friday for a scrimmage against the Thomas Nelson Generals.
    It’s the third season in a row the Knights and Generals have scrimmaged.
    “There were many kids who got opportunities to get some good game action and it allows us to get film to assess where they are as the season gets ready to take off,” Marion County Head Coach Allen Harmon said.

  • GOLF: Knights making steady...

    The Marion County High School golf team hit the green for a total of three matches last week.
    In a girls-only match, sophomore Ava Spalding shot a 120 at a tournament in Glasgow on Aug. 7.
    “It was a tough day on the course. Very hot and humid,” Marion County Head Coach Joey Reed said. “Made for tough conditions. Ava kept a steady head and never gave up. That’s all a coach can ask for when it’s not your day is just solid effort.”
    Spalding also competed at the Paul Laurence Dunbar Invitational on Aug. 2, posting a 117.
