  • Lady Knights begin district play...

    Marion County has been in practice a lot more than in games. Rainy weather and soaked fields have cancelled a slew of games for the Lady Knights, who improved to 2-2 after a 6-0 victory over Thomas Nelson last week.

  • Marion County beats rain for two...

    The rain managed to hold off long enough to allow Marion County to get two tennis matches in before the team takes time off the court for Spring Break.

    Marion County began last week against a rebuilding Nelson County team at Graham Memorial Park.

    “We expected to win that one,” Marion County coach Noah Swencki said. “They’re trying to rebuild so they had a bunch of new players. Not much experience. It was pretty one-sided.”

  • Down to two

    And then there were two.

    After Saturday’s Final Four at the Alamodome in San Antonio, two teams were left standing in the NCAA Tournament. Those two squads - the Michigan Wolverines and Villanova Wildcats - faced off Monday night for the national championship.

  • Former UK walk-on impresses NFL...

    He came to Kentucky with a huge chip on his shoulder. He was a three-sports standout at Louisville St. Xavier but the only way he got on the UK football team was to accept a walk-on offer from then offensive coordinator Neal Brown.

    “I thought I deserved to have (scholarship) offers, but not getting them kept me working really hard,” said senior receiver Charles Walker. “I got to play special teams. Then I got in the game at receiver. I realized I was pretty good at football.”

  • BASEBALL: Knights retreat to...

    Sunny weather. Beautiful beaches. Warm temperatures. Sounds like the picture perfect vacation. For Marion County baseball, it will be the weather they’ll hit the diamond under.
    After Spring turned right back to Winter last week, canceling several games and matches for Marion County sports, the Knights will head south to not just soak up the warm weather, but play four games at Historic Dodgertown at Vero Beach.

  • New lights up at Graham Memorial...

    When Little League Baseball teams convene from across Kentucky to play at Graham Memorial Park over the summer, they will be playing under some new and bright lights.
    City of Lebanon employees have been busy putting up new LED lights on two fields at Graham Memorial Park along with Jason Tatum, who is wiring up the new lights, and Larry Smith, who brought cranes to lift old poles out of the ground.
    Matthew “Moo Moo” Mattingly, the park activities director, cited the age of the poles as the predominant reason for the installation of the new lights.

  • Bracket busters

    Filling out an NCAA tournament bracket has become something of a yearly tradition.
    Over 60 million Americans fill out a bracket each year, despite the odds of filling out the perfect bracket stacked high against them (the odds are one in 9.4 quintillion to be exact). Sports fans and non-sports fans alike will fill out a bracket and join bracket contests with family, friends or co-workers, with prizes, cash and bragging rights on the line. Research will be done, numbers will be crunched and fans will seek to gain an edge to get a perfect- or darn close to- bracket.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Knights face...

    It will be home cooking for Marion County before Spring Break kicks off. The Lady Knights will hope the weather will finally cooperate to get games in against the Mercer County Titans and Nelson County Lady Cardinals, with both games set to be played on Talley Field.
    The Lady Knights will play Mercer County at 6 p.m., tomorrow, while the Lady Cards will play Marion County at 6 p.m., Friday.
