  • Vineyards, wineries make a comeback

    Before tobacco was king in Kentucky, grapes were a majestic crop.
    Around the time of the Civil War and Prohibition, Kentucky was the nation’s third largest grape-producing state.

    Both St. Catharine and Cumberlands now have a 6-16 record in the conference.

    That improvement continued Saturday at the Bellarmine University Invitational in Louisville.

    The Patriots were able to place in the top 10 in three events on the cold, blustery, rainy day that brought 17 teams to Bellarmine.
