  • 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.

  • WC Commanders lose big at...

    The WC Commanders (3-5, 2-3) were unable to secure a victory against the Bardstown Tigers (6-2, 3-2) last Friday night, losing by a score of 45-0.

    With the loss, the Commanders also lost control of the number-three seed in the district and a playoff bid.

    Bardstown controlled the tempo from the start of the game, as senior running back Deion Tonge scored a two-yard touchdown on a fourth-down play with 5:11 to go in the first quarter.

    A two-point conversion made it 8-0.

  • WC volleyball loses on Senior...

    With six seniors and six spots on the floor, it seemed destined that the WC Commanderettes volleyball team would start all of their seniors on Senior Night.

    And that’s exactly what happened in their final regular-season game of the year last week against the North Hardin Trojans.

    Playing a three-set match, the Commanderettes were unable to send their seniors out on a high note, however, losing 25-13 in the first game and 35-33 in the second.

    Assistant coach Casey Mudd was surprised at how talented the North Hardin team turned out to be.

  • SCC defeats Shawnee State in...

    With conference seeding on the line, the St. Catharine Patriots (12-9, 6-4 MSC) hosted the Shawnee State Bears (12-10, 5-5 MSC) in Lourdes Hall on Saturday.

    After finishing eighth in the 2012 final Mid-South Conference standings, a battle for a solid fourth-place standing seemed more like a dream than a reality for the St. Catharine Patriots.

    However, Saturday afternoon pitted the Patriots against a Bears squad that they dropped three straight sets to on the road and a chance to take a hold on fourth place.
