    Eric Ward of Lexington, Ky., has been named the next commissioner of the Mid-South Conference.

  • SCC Week in Review

    As conference seasons are coming to a close for St. Catharine fall sports, the races are heating up for conference seeding.

    The Patriots kicked the week off with the men’s and women’s soccer teams heading to the University of Rio Grande for a key conference matchup for both squads.

    The Lady Patriots (11-4, 4-3 MSC) started the night off with a 2-1 victory that moved them to fourth place in the conference standings, just behind rival Campbellsville.

  • SCC wins 'Battle of the Patriots'

    The St. Catharine volleyball team (14-9, 8-4 MSC) proved that they are the top Patriots in the MSC Wednesday night against the University of the Cumberlands (12-7, 5-6 MSC).

    Once again looking to improve their conference seeding, the St. Catharine Patriots came out blazing.

    Rebecca Just (Louisville) led the charge with three straight kills to kick off set number one.  

    In fact, Just commanded the offensive attention for most of the night with her season-high 21 kills, posting a .364 attack average.

  • Fort Knox a must win

    The WC Commanders are now only a win away from the playoffs. Or a loss away from not participating in postseason play.

    Friday night’s game against the Fort Knox Eagles (2-6, 2-3) can be either a positive or a negative for the Commanders, but Head Coach Eric Sagrecy hopes his team sees the opportunity as the former rather than the latter.

  • WC Commanders lose big at Bardstown

    The WC Commanders (3-5, 2-3) were unable to secure a victory against the Bardstown Tigers (6-2, 3-2) last Friday night, losing by a score of 45-0.

    With the loss, the Commanders also lost control of the number-three seed in the district and a playoff bid.

    Bardstown controlled the tempo from the start of the game, as senior running back Deion Tonge scored a two-yard touchdown on a fourth-down play with 5:11 to go in the first quarter.

    A two-point conversion made it 8-0.

  • WC volleyball loses on Senior Night

    With six seniors and six spots on the floor, it seemed destined that the WC Commanderettes volleyball team would start all of their seniors on Senior Night.

    And that’s exactly what happened in their final regular-season game of the year last week against the North Hardin Trojans.

    Playing a three-set match, the Commanderettes were unable to send their seniors out on a high note, however, losing 25-13 in the first game and 35-33 in the second.

    Assistant coach Casey Mudd was surprised at how talented the North Hardin team turned out to be.

  • Lasting visions of Floy Bugg Fenwick

    Locally born author Frederick Fenwick recently had the fourth installment of his Lasting Visions series published, and this time, he has turned his focus to his mother, Floy Bugg Fenwick.

    A 1969 graduate of Washington County High School, Fenwick knew that his mother would be an interesting subject to write about because, as he put it, she had “quite a repertoire of things she could do.”
