    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.

    Please pardon the interruption

    Hey, what does a fella have to do to get a little time off? Apparently, you have to have a stroke!

    In case you haven’t noticed, the past couple of issues of The Springfield Sun have had something missing - me! It’s not that I planned it, but I’ve been out for two weeks recovering from what doctors say was a mild stroke.

    The Three Amigos. Three all-beef patties. The Three Musketeers. The Three Little Pigs. The Three Bears. The three former football Commanders.

    Such is the life for Shane Bueter, Stewart Jones and Ethan Devine as they try to fit in for The Fighting Tigers at Campbellsville University.

    Not much else finds common ground as easily as the two words that all three share — red shirt.

    You could say that high school football in Washington County is a lot like agriculture in Washington County. For one particular year, there’s a bumper crop, and then some years, there are rough patches. While the varsity Commanders finished 2009 with a 3-8 record, the seeds have already been planted for future harvests as the JV squad went 6-0, taking the Heartland Conference title and the freshman team finishing at a respectable 4-2. As one chapter in WC football closes, head coach Mark Perry sees good things ahead for his team.

    SCC Sports Information

    The St. Catharine College women have won just one basketball game in four outings this year. While that may be a concern for most teams, Patriot head coach Lena Bramblett only sees good things as a result of the early tough schedule.

    “I can say that three of those four losses have made us a better team,” said Bramblett, whose squad split a pair of games in the last week. “We really played well in those losses.”
