    SCC Sports Information

    In its first-ever Mid-South Conference volleyball tournament the St. Catharine College team had a short stay. But the Patriots did not go down without a fight as they fell 3-0 to Campbellsville last Tuesday at the Frankfort Convention Center.

    “I couldn’t be more proud of these players,” said St. Catharine athletic director Mike Doig, who served as interim coach. “They were able to stay focused through some difficult situations to put together a decent season.”
