  • Rival Marion up next for...

    The playoffs are now a reality for the WC Commanders, (4-5, 3-3) so Friday night’s rivalry game against Marion County (3-6) will no longer serve as their final contest.

    But that doesn’t make it any less important, especiallly for the players.

    “Everybody talks a lot of crap during that game,” senior Dustin Harmon said. “Nobody plays soft.”

    Only one game in the series has been decided by more than a touchdown since 2004, adding more intrigue to the game.

  • WC volleyball season ends

    WC came in with the chance to knock off the team that beat them in last year’s district playoff. And to make it even sweeter, it would put them into the regional tournament.

    But, in the end, the Commanderettes were unable to pull off the upset against the second-seeded Bethlehem Banshees, losing in four sets (25-23, 24-26, 26-24, 25-20).

    However, Head Coach Anne Mudd couldn’t have been more proud of her team in the four games, especially considering that none of the sets were decided by more than five points.

  • The Anatomy of a Rivalry

    The two teams have district ties.

    They don’t have any ties within the region, for football or volleyball.

    But when Marion County comes up on the schedule, bad blood is to be expected.

    Football Head Coach Eric Sagrecy, who played in the rivalry from 1997-2000, thinks that the biggest appeal to these games is that his athletes are always ready to compete.

    “The kids are always prepared for those games,” Sagrecy said. “That always makes them a lot of fun, I think on both sides.”

  • Welcome to the playoffs

    WC came in to the game against Fort Knox as underdogs.

    But they came away with a playoff berth and a 41-19 win.

    “Our team was excited all week for the opportunity to play our way into the playoffs,” Sagrecy said. “And they played like it, too.”

    The WC offense was led by senior quarterback Tylyn Byas,  who rushed for 287 yards and four touchdowns on the evening. He is now 34 rushing yards away from having 1,000 on the year.


    Some people have commented on how funny and outgoing she is.

    And her coach called her “a little spitfire” on the court because of her aggressive play.

    But for Jessica Foster, she would like to be known for just being nice to everybody and treating others as she would like to be treated.

    “I don’t try to be anybody else,” Foster said. “I’m a nice person, so I just like to be nice to everybody. I don’t think I have anybody that doesn’t like me, and I think that’s a good thing.”

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: A Lesson in...

    Having grown up on a dairy farm, Abby Coulter knows a thing or two about hard work.

    She credits her farming lifestyle in grounding her and helping her realize what her priorities should be.

    “I’ve been around the farm my whole life,” Coulter said. “I’ve always had to be working every day, and I think that’s really allowed me to know that you have to have a great work ethic in everything you do.”

  • Eric Ward named MSC commissioner

    Eric Ward of Lexington, Ky., has been named the next commissioner of the Mid-South Conference.

    Ward becomes the conference’s fourth commissioner after being selected by the Mid-South Board of Presidents. He will assume the office Nov. 15. Ward replaces Steve Baker, who resigned from the position on Aug. 23.

  • SCC Week in Review

    As conference seasons are coming to a close for St. Catharine fall sports, the races are heating up for conference seeding.

    The Patriots kicked the week off with the men’s and women’s soccer teams heading to the University of Rio Grande for a key conference matchup for both squads.

    The Lady Patriots (11-4, 4-3 MSC) started the night off with a 2-1 victory that moved them to fourth place in the conference standings, just behind rival Campbellsville.

  • SCC wins 'Battle of the...

    The St. Catharine volleyball team (14-9, 8-4 MSC) proved that they are the top Patriots in the MSC Wednesday night against the University of the Cumberlands (12-7, 5-6 MSC).

    Once again looking to improve their conference seeding, the St. Catharine Patriots came out blazing.

    Rebecca Just (Louisville) led the charge with three straight kills to kick off set number one.  

    In fact, Just commanded the offensive attention for most of the night with her season-high 21 kills, posting a .364 attack average.

  • Fort Knox a must win

    The WC Commanders are now only a win away from the playoffs. Or a loss away from not participating in postseason play.

    Friday night’s game against the Fort Knox Eagles (2-6, 2-3) can be either a positive or a negative for the Commanders, but Head Coach Eric Sagrecy hopes his team sees the opportunity as the former rather than the latter.
