  • Lady Patriots lose to...

    The St. Catharine Lady Patriots (3-12, 1-8 MSC) gave the No. 8 Tigers of Campbellsville (17-2, 8-1 MSC) all that they could handle on Thursday night.

    With point guard Machera Calhoun (Fort Meyers, Fla.) missing in action for most of the contest, the St. Catharine Lady Patriots challenged Campbellsville until the very end.

  • Commanderettes blow halftime lead

    Despite a promising 20-13 halftime lead, the Washington County Commanderettes (2-11, 1-5) were unable to pull out their third win of the season against the Caverna Lady Colonels (12-7) in the Fifth Region All-A Classic.

    As the host team, WC had a bye for the first round of the tournament and met Caverna in the semifinals after the Colonels’ defeat of the Campbellsville Lady Tigers.

    And WC started the game off strong defensively, holding the high-powered Colonels offense to only four first-quarter points.

  • WC can't hold on against...

    Unlike in games past, the Washington County Commanders (2-12, 0-6) got off to a fast start against the Caverna Colonels (8-10) last Thursday night, jumping out to a 10-4 lead in the opening minutes of the game.

    However, like so many times before, the Commanders were unable to finish the game with a victory, falling to the Colonels by a score of 76-66.

    But the main point of emphasis for Head Coach Russell Burkhead is that the team is improving and giving an all-out effort each night.

  • Spaulding ignites Patriots in...

    It was a weekend to remember for the St. Catharine Nautical Patriots as they took to the waves in Campbellsville to battle the Tigers and the Wildcats of Bethel.

    After a long stint out of the water, the Lady Patriot swimmers were ready to get back in the water and pick up where they had left off before the break.

  • SCC falls to the Bears on the...

    The St. Catharine Lady Patriots (3-11, 1-7 MSC) couldn’t overcome first-half shooting woes to fall to the Shawnee State Bears (9-9, 2-5 MSC) on the road 82-52.

    SCC would like to forget the first half of Saturday’s contest at Shawnee State, as they were only able to muster 16 points on 15 percent shooting. The Patriots’ struggles started early, with the Bears tearing off a 16-0 run. They would go on to take a 27-6 lead before Stacie Shrout (Florence) was able to hit one of her two first-half shots from behind the arc with just over six minutes remaining.

  • WCMS sweeps competition


    In the final regular-season home game, the eighth-graders of WCMS got off to a slow start against Bloomfield Middle School.

    However, the Generals managed to take a 25-15 halftime lead into the locker room.

    WCMS came out strong in the third quarter, going on a 14-4 run.

    The Generals ended the contest with a 52-27 victory.

    Jailen Statemen led the team in scoring with 22 points while Cameron Willis and Devin Hurst chipped in with 11 and eight points, respectively.

  • SCC downs Shawnee in comeback

    After falling to Rio Grande, the St. Catharine Patriots (11-6, 5-3 MSC) rebounded with a win over their next Ohio foe Shawnee State (8-10, 2-5 MSC) in comeback fashion 68-62.

    In their last contest, the Patriots had fallen victim to numerous runs in a close contest with rival Rio Grande, but with their backs against the wall in Portsmouth, Ohio, the Patriots found a way to survive the Bears.

    After falling behind 11-0 early on in the contest, Head Coach JT Burton made a complete line-up change and looked to the Patriot bench to rally.  

  • WC nearly tops Nelson

    Despite a 60-58 loss to the Nelson County Cardinals (6-9, 3-2) last week, WC Commander Head Coach Russell Burkhead emphasized the importance of his team’s ability to claw their way back into the game after falling behind by as many as 19 points in the third quarter.

    “Our kids showed some real fight at the end of the game,” Burkhead said. “We were able to get back in it by boxing out and playing D, but we just started off too slow to get the win.”

  • Commanderettes can’t stop slide...

    North Hardin
    In the opening contest of the Autism Awareness Classic, the Washington County Commanderettes (2-9, 1-5) fell to the North Hardin Trojans (11-5) by a score of 70-47.

    Although the Commanderettes were able to cut the deficit to as little as 12 in the second half, they were unsuccessful in picking up a win against one of the top teams in the fifth region.

    “North Hardin’s an athletic, quick team, and we weren’t able to keep up with them,” Head Coach Bernard Smalley said.

  • SCC women can’t finish in last...

    Georgetown College

    The St. Catharine Lady Patriots (3-9, 1-5 MSC) gave the visiting Georgetown College Tigers (10-3, 4-1 MSC) all that they could handle in the final minutes of Saturday’s contest, but their comeback fell just short as the Patriots fell 72-63.

    With over six minutes remaining in the contest, it looked all but over as the Lady Patriots trailed the Tigers 60-47.
