  • MD to KY reunion a success

    For the first time in six years, the Maryland to Kentucky and Beyond Reunion was held, and St. Catharine College in Springfield played host for this year’s event, which was a resounding success.

    A 27-person committee spent the last two years planning the reunion’s revival, and the result was a well-attended event that brought visitors from at least 26 states back to their roots.

  • Building relationships: Mission group comes to Springfield

    For the volunteers of Young Neighbors in Action, it’s not just about the mission work. It’s also about fostering relationships.

    And when a group of 85 chaperones and high-school-aged missionaries from Young Neighbors visited Springfield last week, that’s exactly what they did.

    They built lasting relationships.

    County Phase I Funds
    This year, receiving information about our County  Phase I funds has been a real roller-coaster ride.

    We were told early in the year there wasn’t going to be any funds and then a few months later we were told our county would be receiving 42% of the funds.  

    Our County Phase I Board met the end of May. Since this would be a small amount of money they voted to roll the funds over to 2015.

    By doing this we would have a large amount of money to be able to serve more people next year.

  • 4-H hosts summer camp

    You can’t think of summer without thinking of summer camp.

    Early mornings and late nights and singing your way to meals; making new friends, but keeping the old; all are memories made over a week of summer camp.

    Last week, 35 Washington County campers and counselors attended Lake Cumberland 4-H Camp.

    During the week, campers had a chance to swim, go boating, shoot archery and rifles, experience climbing and zip lining during high ropes, learn teamwork in low ropes, compete in field games, complete crafts and, of course, Sally Down the Alley.

  • SCC receives grant from U.S. Wrestling Foundation

    Starting a new college athletic program can include many daunting challenges, not the least among them the funding of such an endeavor. But for the St. Catharine College inaugural wrestling season, the economic issue has been lessened greatly through help from the U.S. Wrestling Foundation (USWF).

  • 9-10-year-old all-stars gain ‘positive experience’

    “Who are we? WC! Who are we? WC!”

    This chant could be heard throughout Idle Hour Park after Washington County’s 9-10-year-old baseball all-stars played their final game of the district tournament this past Monday night.

    WC head coach Lance Russell had gathered his team for their final meeting of the year following their 15-4 loss to Adair County, and there was only one logical way to end this occasion: the war cry that was heard often from the team’s dugout during its two-game stint in the tournament.

  • 11-12 all-stars win district opener

    It was the third inning when the matchup between the 11-12-year-old baseball all-stars of Washington County and South Hardin was delayed because of a rainstorm this past Sunday evening.

    WC was down 2-0, but the team’s head coach, Russell Burkhead, had one message for his team: Just keep battling.

  • Holt takes rein of WCHS girls' basketball program

    Mike Holt has been involved in the game of basketball “pretty much” his whole life, including 33 years as a high school referee, but he will now be taking on a role he’s never had before.

    He’s going to be a head basketball coach.

    More specifically, he will be the girls’ varsity basketball coach for Washington County High School.

    When somebody’s on the job, you can often take them for granted. When they’re away, you quickly notice what they did, and you appreciate them even more.

    Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve had two Springfield Sun staff members on vacation, and I’ve gotten a refresher course in all that they do.
