  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: The Perfect Setup

    Anne Mudd wasted no time in thinking of the words she wanted to describe senior setter Madelyn Abell.

    “She’s a real go-getter,” the head coach replied without a moment’s hesitation. “She will give you 110 percent all the time.”

    And that is what Abell has been striving for since day one.

    She had always liked sports and was interested in doing other things than just going to school, and when she saw her first high school volleyball game, she was hooked.

  • Hlavinka, Davis take over youth programs

    The Washington County Youth Actors and Bluegrass Kids programs are under new leadership, and new instructors Sue Hlavinka and Jolene Davis both see this community as a chance to continue their love of music and entertainment.

    Hlavinka (Youth Actors) is an Oregon native who moved to Kentucky in 2007 to be closer to family, but even after her family relocated, she stayed because she said the Bluegrass feels so much like home.

  • SCC bowling looks for success

    With the 2013-2014 season on the horizon, the SCC bowling program has high expectations following last year’s championship effort.

    When SCC announced the addition of a bowling program a few years ago, championships seemed to be a thing in the far-off future.

    However, Head Coach Larry Luvisi and his team had other plans.

    Until last season, SCC did not have a conference championship of any kind, but that would change following a miraculous, game-changing run through the MSC tournament by SCC.

  • SCC week in review

    The St. Catharine College athletic program tested their driving ability this week as all teams spent time on the road.

    Saturday began with a splash for the nautical Patriots as they traveled to Campbellsville University for their first competition of the season.

  • Student looks to jumpstart business

    It’s never too early for any entrepreneur to take on the challenge of starting their first business. That’s especially true when that business centers around something that person is passionate about.

    For Washington County High School junior Brooke Williams, that passion is photography, and she was already ahead of the curve on setting up her career path before even acquiring her driver’s license.

  • Commanderettes streaking, win four of last five matches

    The WC Commanderettes volleyball team (15-10, 4-3) was unable to add to their recent four-game winning streak this past Monday night.

  • Harvest Festival is this weekend

    When the Kentucky Crossroads Harvest Festival takes place this Saturday, it will mark the first time that the event will be held on only one day.

    The festival, sponsored by the Springfield-Washington County Chamber of Commerce, used to be a three-day extravaganza, but according to chamber president John Weis, the shorter time frame will better serve the event.

    “It will have everything that it used to have,” Weis said. “It’s one free day, absolutely packed with things to do.”
