Marshals go 3-0, win Campbellsville Holiday Classic

The Marshall County Marshals rebounded from a 1-2 mark in the Northwest Florida Shootout in dominant fashion, rattling off three straight wins to win the Campbellsville Holiday Classic.

The Marshals kicked things off in game one with a commanding 73-53 victory over Taylor County.

Junior guard Cole Mills returned to his early season form, scoring a game-high 23 points to lead Marshall County.

Senior forward Kole Sedlock followed Mills with 18 points and four rebounds while junior guard Wade Moore added 10 points.

In second round action, the Marshals didn’t miss a beat, putting together another routing, this time in a 72-53 win over Madison Southern.

Mills and Sedlock delivered 22 and 20 point performances to lead the Marshals.

In its championship bout against Butler (Louisville), Marshall County paired a 14-point night from Sedlock with a stout defensive presence, halting the Bears en route to the 44-39 championship win.

Marshall County will look to roll last week’s momentum into this week’s slate against McCracken and Crittenden county.

Lady Marshals suffer first loss of season

While their male counterparts were busy taking care of business in Campbellsville, the Marshall County Lady Marshals were playing for a championship of their own in the First Bank Holiday Bash at South Warren High School.

In game one on Wednesday night, the Lady Marshals handled Rockcastle County with ease, defeating the Lady Rockets 53-36.

Senior forward Halle Langhi narrowly missed a double-double in the Lady Marshals’ win, scoring a game-high 22 points while hauling in nine rebounds.

The Lady Marshals would hardly break a sweat in their second round date with Owensboro High School as they cruised to a 56-19 win behind senior guard Jada Driver’s 30-point night.

Driver was red hot from downtown, going 9-15 from behind the arc to outscore the entire Owensboro team 30-19.

In the championship game, Marshall County was tasked with taking down Third Region favorite Owensboro Catholic.

Despite an 18 point, 11 rebound effort from Langhi, the Lady Marshals suffered their first loss of the 2021-22 season, falling 62-57.

Marshall County will face a quick turnaround this week, taking on Mayfield, McCracken and Henderson county.
