    The St. Catharine Patriots stayed busy last week, hosting five home contests and sending one team on the road.

    The week kicked off with the Lady Patriots’ soccer team hosting the Asbury Eagles.

    Highlighted by keeper Lindsey Vinson’s nine saves and Courtney Anderson’s five shots, three on goal, the Patriots were unable to capitalize on their opportunities and fell to 3-1 on the year.

    In his first year as a starter for the WC Commanders, Dillon Milburn has impressed.

    It started with his first catch as a starting wide receiver against LaRue County, where he “ran a dude over.”

    It then escalated when the WC defense was bending against Elizabethtown, and Milburn decided to make sure it wouldn’t break, making a crucial interception with the Commanders only down by a touchdown.

    Amanda Cox was at a crossroads.

    She had quit playing both basketball and softball in seventh grade, but her mother thought she should take up another sport to fill the void that her two former activities would leave.

    And she insisted it be golf.

    “My sister Emily was interested in it, so she thought that I should give it a shot as well,” Cox said.

    It didn’t take long for her to take to her new sport because of the independence it allowed her.
