  • MCHS students organize Olivia...

    Marion County High School will have an Olivia Ford Memorial ceremony at the school's softball field prior to the home softball game May 4 at 6 p.m.
    Ford, who was set to graduate this year, passed away in February in a car accident.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Knights play one...

    This one’s for Olivia Ford.
    Just over two months after the former Little League softball player was killed in a vehicle accident, the Marion County Lady Knights will honor Ford before their game at Talley Field against the Nelson County Lady Cardinals on Friday.
    The Lady Knights were going to play the Russell County Lakers but Russell County has to make up a district game against Metcalfe County. Lady Knights Head Coach Erin Benton said rescheduling the game is in the works.

  • TENNIS: Cassidy repeats in...

    It was a tale of two teams for Marion County at the Heartland Conference meet. The girls? Fantastic, according to their coach. The boys? Struggling and searching for answers.
    Ireland Cassidy repeated as singles champ for the girls, Cara Piekarski and Otoka Ishii both made it to the finals in doubles and Bryce Spalding made the only finals appearance for the boys at the Heartland Conference meet April 16-17.

  • TRACK AND FIELD: Marion County...

    Before a pair of meets this week, Marion County had only participated in two meets, having to dodge rain, storms and just about everything in between. The two meets this week - the Danville All-Comers on April 24 and the Blue Raider Rumble at Lindsey Wilson College Friday - gave the Knights some much-needed track action with the regional meet on the horizon.
    At the Blue Raider Rumble, the Marion County girls finished in last place out of 16 teams while the boys placed ninth out of 17 teams.

  • Vaught’s Views: Freddie Maggard...

    By Larry Vaught

    One extra benefit from having former Kentucky quarterback Freddie Maggard as the director of player development for the UK football team could be an uptick in in-state recruiting.

  • Lady Knights to face Nelson and...

    Even though Marion County’s 10-game win streak ended on Friday in a 2-1 loss to North Hardin, the Lady Knights are proving they can make some noise within the Fifth Region. Marion County is currently 10-3, giving them the second best win percentage in the region behind Green County (11-3). Hart County (9-3) is third while Central Hardin (14-6) is fourth.

  • Knights look to extend winning...

    The Marion County Knights felt good snapping a five-game skid on Thursday in Columbia. They felt really good after two wins in Shepherdsville to get them on a three-game winning streak.

    “They are starting to realize their true potential and if we can maintain that and build upon that, we can be very successful,” Marion County Head Coach Patrick Campbell said.

  • Thrilling moments

    There are two sides to every game: the winning side and the losing side. No two wins - or two losses - are the same. Some are blowouts, with the outcome decided long before the game’s end. Others are closely contested contests, with the outcome hanging in the balance for most of the game.

  • Fans will like energy that...

    Rivals.com basketball recruiting writer Krysten Peek believes that Georgia five-star guard Ashton Hagans has one quality Kentucky fans are going to really like.

    “One thing that definitely stands out to me is Ashton doesn't take games off. He plays hard all the time and kind of reminds me of (Alabama point guard) Collin Sexton that way,” Peek said. “He just loves the game and wants to win every time he steps on the court. 

  • BASEBALL: Knights traveling to...

    Early on in 2018, the Marion County Knights have fallen on some difficult times.
    After starting off 2-0, Marion County has gone 1-7 since then, dropping their record to 3-7. Marion County’s only win in that span was against Taylor County, 5-2, in the opening game of the series against the Cardinals last week. Four of the Knights’ losses this season came against stout competition at Dodgertown in Florida.
