  • WC football falls to Glasgow......

    Three times was not the charm that the Washington County Commanders (4-7, 3-3) had hoped it would be this past Friday night.

    With a 43-0 loss, the Commanders had their season ended in the first round of the KHSAA Class 2A Playoffs for the third straight year by the Glasgow Scotties (10-1).

    WC struggled on both sides of the ball but had the most trouble stopping Glasgow’s rushing attack. Junior running back Marquez Trigg came into the contest with 1,283 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns on the season.

  • SCC Patriots open season with...

    The St. Catharine Lady Patriots (1-0) tipped off their first official game Saturday afternoon when they traveled to Miami University-Middletown (0-1) to battle the Thunderhawks.

    And, in the process, the team secured a win (106-68) in their opening-night game for the fourth straight season.

    After successful scrimmages against the Thoroughbreds of Kentucky State and Mid-Continent, the Lady Patriots were ready for their 2013-2014 campaign to begin as they headed to the “Buckeye State” on Saturday.


    Micah Devine doesn’t even remember the student’s name, but in sixth grade, the coaxing of a random classmate started what would become a lasting obsession for Devine.

    “Some boy just asked me if I wanted to play football,” Devine said. “It was just something to do, so I started playing. I’ve been playing it ever since.”

    Devine, who was raised in Willisburg, developed a lifelong love for “anything outdoors” early on in his life.

  • NWMS eighth-grade girls take...

    The North Washington eighth-grade girls claimed the NIT tournament championship last week to take the MKAC conference crown.

    The Patriots blew out Bloomfield 46-23 in the championship game after the score was tied at 13 at halftime.

    Bernard Smalley’s team outscored Bloomfield 19-5 in the third quarter to take the lead, and they never looked back.

  • WC in playoffs, draw Glasgow

    When the WC Commanders (4-6, 3-3) defeated Fort Knox two weeks ago, it signified two things: one, a return to the playoffs and, two, another matchup with the Glasgow Scotties (9-1).

    The Scotties are a familiar foe for Head Coach Eric Sagrecy’s Commanders, as they have knocked WC out of the 2A playoffs for the last two seasons.

    But, instead of seeing this as a negative, Sagrecy issued his team a challenge as soon as he found out who their playoff opponent could be were they to win that playoff-clinching game against Fort Knox.


    Growing up, everybody thought he was “too small” to play football.

    But Dustin Harmon never paid much attention to what everybody thought.

    Everybody except for one person, at least.

    “I always wanted to play,” Harmon said, “but my mom wouldn’t let me because she thought I was too small, thought I’d get hurt.”

    But in eighth grade, Harmon finally got his wish.

  • Rivalry rekindled but unkind for...

    With another rivalry game against Marion County last Friday night, WC could all but guarantee a close game.

    Only one game in the series has been decided by more than eight points since 2004.

    And this year’s contest only added to the streak, a matchup that ended in a 28-20 Marion County win.

    It appeared that Marion would run away with the win to start the game, jumping out to a 14-0 lead, but a WC fumble recovery led to an 81-yard run by senior quarterback Tylyn Byas to cut their deficit in half.

  • SCC's Vinson wins MSC award

    St. Catharine’s Lindsey Vinson was one of the Mid-South Conference Women’s Soccer Players of the Week, conference officials announced on Monday.

    The conference weekly honor is the first of Vinson’s career.

    Vinson recorded a shutout in her only match last week to earn Mid-South Women’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week.

    The Dawsonville senior goalkeeper collected a season-high 10 saves in the Patriots’ 2-0 win over Campbellsville.

    The shutout is Vinson’s second of the season.

  • SCC men's basketball preview

    For the St. Catharine College Patriots, the 2012-2013 campaign was one that they would like to forget; the Patriots finished 9-11 in the Mid-South Conference and 13-14 overall, their worst since their first year of National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) participation.

    During that year, the Patriots finished with a 1-12 conference record and only 5-24 overall.  

  • SCC women’s basketball preview

    With the 2013-2014 season on the horizon, the St. Catharine Lady Patriots basketball team looks to capitalize on their NAIA National Tournament experience.

    Just one year ago, the St. Catharine Lady Patriots kicked off a season that would make school history and end in a heartbreaking loss to Westminster College in the NAIA National Tournament.

    With their dreams of a deep run in the national tournament dashed in the first round, the Lady Patriots enter the 2013-2014 season hungry for a return trip to the top.
