  • Lincoln men’s club tees off

    On Sunday the Lincoln Men’s Golf Club held the Stag Scramble, the kick-off tournament for the year. 

    With the wind blowing around 15 to 25 MPH and the ground soaked, the playing was tough. 
    The winning team of Tony Medley, Ted McNeal and Ricky “Bobby” Hoppes posted nine under 62. 
    Second place went to Mikie Yates, Fred Armstrong, and Pat Cassitty; with an eight under 63.
    Third place went to Bill Frost, Brad Reynolds, and Travis Wheatley.

  • Postseason still unclear for SCC softball

    The  St. Catharine College Patriots journeyed to Williamsburg on Saturday to play a softball doubleheader against the University of the Cumberlands.

    The two games could have easily cleared up the seeding for post-season play that is scheduled to start next Monday.
    Instead, after the teams split the twin bill, the picture for the Mid-South Conference tournament  remained as murky as the local creeks this spring.
    Both St. Catharine and Cumberlands now have a 6-16 record in the conference.

  • Patriot track team continues improvement

    The St. Catharine College track and field teams haven’t yet recruited enough athletes to compete for team titles at any meets.

    First year coach Blake Jones is encouraged by the improvement his runners have shown each time out this spring.
    That improvement continued Saturday at the Bellarmine University Invitational in Louisville.
    Three Patriots recorded personal records at the meet.
    The Patriots were able to place in the top 10 in three events on the cold, blustery, rainy day that brought 17 teams to Bellarmine.

  • Patriot baseball looking toward postseason

    Most people would be glad if they were told they could go to Rio for a weekend.

    The St. Catharine College baseball team would just as soon be staying home Friday and Saturday.
    That’s because Luther Bramblett’s Bat Pats are not headed for a resort destination, but instead to the University of Rio Grande in southeast Ohio.

  • Sagrecy receives warm welcome

    A Washington County native and former Commander is taking the helm of the football program.

  • Patriots announce summer basketball camps

    J.T. Burton and the St. Catharine Patriots would like to invite all incoming 3rd through 9th graders to attend the Patriots summer basketball camps.

    These camps have been designed to ensure that campers have an enjoyable experience, while also strengthening the skills necessary to become a better player.
    Each day of camp will consist of individual teaching, repetition of fundamentals, competition in a multitude of skill contests, and a variety of live scrimmages, including 3-on-3 and 5-on-5.

  • Girls’ basketball team announce award winners

    The Washington County High School girls’ basketball team recently announced postseason awards at their banquet.

    Moriah Hourigan cleaned house with three varsity awards. She finished with the best defensive player award, the Iron Woman award and the academic award.
    Shay Yocum giveth and taketh away, claiming the most assists and the most steals.
    Kenya Turner was a force inside, finishing with the most rebounds and best field goal percentage.

  • Resourceful, aren’t they?

    At some point, we’ve all had to learn a skill.

    If you’re a student, you’ve had to learn how to write an essay or how to solve a math equation.
    If you’re in the work force, you’ve had to learn skills for your job.
    In my job, I had to learn how to take pictures and write (hopefully) compelling news and sports stories.
    I was lucky enough to attend school to learn these skills from some of the finest professionals around the country, with some of the best equipment.

  • Tennis teams bounce back

    After a slow start, the Washington County boys’ and girls’ tennis teams have bounced back.
    “Last week was our best yet,” head coach Aaron Dugger said.

    The girls swept Adair County 5-0 on Thursday at Idle Hour Park, as they hosted their first meet of the season.
    Three of those five matches were won via forfeit, because Adair was able to bring only three players.
    In first doubles, Tiffany Graves and Erica Walker won 8-5 in an eight-game pro set.
