  • Commanders fall to CAL, Mother Nature

    The WC Commanders were competitive against yet another elite squad, trailing the CAL Centurions by only 15 at the half, but they just couldn’t sustain their momentum…again.
    The Commanders ended up with a 44-0 loss.

    “We just can’t finish games,” Head Coach Eric Sagrecy said. “We’re not consistent. We’ve got a few guys that play pretty hard, and we’ve got some guys that continue to make mental errors. As a staff, we’ve got to find a way to be successful for 48 minutes.”

    The victory helped the Commanderettes improve to 12-9 (2-3) and dropped the Generals to 3-13 (0-5).

  • Community First: Community action serves Washington Countians

    Washington County Community Action has made a name for itself by serving the people of the local community. One of the program’s more well-known events took place last Thursday, as senior citizens were provided with meals—as they are once a month—thanks to the Feeding America hunger-relief charity.

  • SCC bounces back in big way, picks up win vs SIU

    The St. Catharine Patriots (1-4, 0-1 MSC) came into Sunday’s match with the Salem International Fighting Tigers (2-2) with a sour taste after battling the Bears of Pikeville to the bitter end.

    The Patriots didn’t take long to conquer their frustrations when a brilliant cross from Sawyer Abshire (Shelbyville, Ky.) was booted past the diving hands of the Tiger keeper by Ashley Woods (Manchester, England).

    From there, the Patriots showed a rejuvenated spirit, one which they had been searching for the entire year.

  • A busy week for Patriots athletics

    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.
