  • SCC Patriot softball ready for...

    The St. Catharine College Lady Patriots softball team will use experience to find success in 2014.

    The Lady Patriots are hungry to hit the diamond in 2014 after just missing the 2013 Mid-South Conference Tournament.

    The Lady Patriots finished the 2013 season with a 22-30 record and a 9-21 mark in the MSC, but fell just short of making the eight-team field for the conference tournament.

  • Calhoun scores 36 on ‘Senior...

    Machera Calhoun (Fort Myers, Fla.) and Heather Sandlin (Florence, Ky.) combined for 55 total points in the SCC Patriots’ 92-80 loss to the Rio Grande Red Storm.

    Following a heartbreaking loss to the Shawnee State Bears at the buzzer on Thursday, the St. Catharine Lady Patriots were hungry to hit the hardwood once more to erase any memories from the game.

    However, despite the 36-point performance on Senior Day from Machera Calhoun, the Patriots were unable to overcome 38 percent shooting as they fell to the Red Storm.

  • Austin dominates as SCC weathers...

    Raymon Austin (Cleveland, Ohio) completed a dominating weekend as the Patriots (16-9, 9-6 MSC) knocked off No. 15 Rio Grande (16-9, 9-5 MSC) by a score of 78-63 on Saturday.

    After tacking down 28 points with 10 rebounds in Thursday’s contest against Shawnee State, the 6-foot-8-inch junior had yet another career performance in Saturday’s win over the visiting Red Storm.

    Austin was one of three double-digit scorers for the Patriots with 19 points along with an astounding 15 boards.

  • On Target

    Ever since Jeff Grigsby took over as the archery coach last season, he has been on the recruiting trail. For a school to compete as a team in archery, there needs to be 12 shooters.
    WCHS has seven.

    “We’d like to get that number up to at least 12,” Grigsby said. “It would be nice to compete as a team instead of just individually.”

    Grigsby is not alone in the pursuit of more participants, though. His team has been actively involved in the process as well.

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: A Mentality of...

    The physicality of the game is what brought Morgan Churchill to football.

    From the first time he knew what the game was, Churchill was entranced with the rough nature of this new sport.

    And it instantly became his favorite.

    “I just always loved football since I was little,” Churchill said. “Being able to be that physical, being able to hit somebody, that just really stuck out to me as something that looked like a lot of fun.”

  • Tim Mattingly hired at Central...

    Tim Mattingly was just waiting for the right opportunity.

    Mattingly knew that it would have to be the right job for him to leave his position as the defensive coordinator for the Meade County Green Wave, a spot he had held for the past 10 years.

    And when the head coaching position at Central Hardin High School became available, he knew that this was his chance.

  • WC boys lose to Taylor, C'...

    In their second matchup in 10 days against the Campbellsville Eagles, the WC Commanders came away with another loss to their regional foe, falling this time by a score of 75-52.

    Head Coach Russell Burkhead’s team started off slow, falling behind 19-11 after the first period. WC fell victim to the snowball effect from there, with the Eagles claiming a commanding 39-21 lead going into the locker room.

  • Back to Back

    Last week, the WC Commanderettes were able to string together back-to-back wins for the first time this season, improving to 5-15 on the year.

    In a 54-44 win against the Campbellsville Lady Eagles last Thursday night, the Commanderettes were able to build a 9-4 lead halfway through the first quarter and built it up to 15-9 by the end of the period.

  • Byas, Lewis sign with C’ville

    WC football seniors Sean Lewis (linebacker) and Ty’Lyn Byas (running back) signed their letters of intent last week to play college football for the Campbellsville Tigers next season.

    The duo was part of a 37-player recruiting class (high school seniors) that signed with the team last Wednesday.

    According to a press release, Tiger Head Coach Perry Thomas called the class “awesome” and noted his staff’s success in signing several Kentucky prospects.

  • Commanderettes can’t end 17-game...

    Marion County

    The last time a WC Commanderette (3-15, 1-6) team was able to celebrate a victory over bitter rival Marion County (11-11) was Jan. 3, 2006.

    And after last Saturday night’s 54-28 loss, WC will have to wait until at least next season to put a stop to their current 17-game skid.

    One issue that Head Coach Bernard Smalley, who has yet to beat the Lady Knights during his tenure as head coach, saw with his team was their lack of enthusiasm to play their border rival.
