  • Bat Pats split conference series...


    After two mid-week games in which they scored 28 runs, the St. Catharine College baseball team’s bats went as cold as the weather at Mid-South Conference rival Lindsey Wilson over the weekend.

  • SCC softball gains “Mo” with...


    The week didn’t start well for Holly Smith’s St. Catharine College softball team. The Patriots were swept Tuesday in a Mid-South Conference doubleheader at Shawnee State. They then lost the opener of Saturday’s twin bill at home against MSC rival West Virginia Tech.

    But then the hits just kept coming as they beat West Virginia Tech in Saturday’s second game and swept a doubleheader Sunday against visiting Oakland City University. In those final three games the Patriots scored 45 runs.

  • Check the water


    Someone check the water, there must be something in it.

    It appears that coaches who drink the local water are enjoying remarkable success.
    Donnie Tyndall, now the head men’s basketball coach at Morehead State University, pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the NCAA tournament when the Eagles beat Louisville in the opening round (the real first round, not the “second round”).
    Tyndall served as the head coach at St. Catharine during the 1996-97 season.

  • Patriot basketball holds 4-0...


    The old axiom in athletics is that it is hard to beat a good team three times in one season. And while, indeed, it is hard to hit that trifecta, how hard must it be to watch the team you’ve owned thrice win a national championship.

    Such a scenario became a reality this year when Pikeville, an at-large team from the Mid-South Conference, won the NAIA National Championship in Kansas City. St. Catharine College beat the Bears twice in the regular season and also in the conference tournament semifinals.

  • Bat Pats record goes to .500...


    The St. Catharine College baseball team has been used to scoring runs in bunches over the last few years, but the Bat Pats have had a more difficult time this season denting home plate.

    That was evident last week as St. Catharine, now 16-16-1 overall, scored 24 runs over six games while posting a 2-4 slate.
    The six-game home stand started last Wednesday with a split against Oakland City.
    The Mighty Oaks (10-2)rebounded from a 5-2 loss in the opener to gain a split with a 6-1 win in the nightcap.
