    Last week, KORT Springfield hosted sports physicals for Washington County student-athletes at Washington County High School.

  • COLUMN: LeBron's not done yet

    The case of LeBron James’ legacy is a curious one.

    The fact that “The Decision” happened in the Twitter age ensured James would be the most hated athlete of all time.

    Despite what you thought of that debacle, though, the most important thing to remember about James’ on-the-court accomplishments is that his career is far from over.

    Christy Baker knows that things will run more smoothly toward the beginning of her second stint as Washington County High School head softball coach.

  • SCC tabs Taylor as new head basketball coach

    When men’s basketball head coach JT Burton left St. Catharine College to become director of player development of the men’s basketball team at the University of Tennessee, he left big shoes to fill.

    Burton was 95-80 in his six years at SCC, and just last season, he led the Patriots to a 20-13 record and a trip to the final eight of the NAIA National Tournament.

    It was the farthest the team had ever gone.
