  • SCC athletes to join mentoring...


    For years the athletes at St. Catharine College have taken an interest in the youth of Central Kentucky.

    The Patriot athletic teams have volunteered to read in elementary schools, have helped distribute commodities to needy families, and have visited area schools for athletic clinics and camps.
    Now the athletes at St. Catharine have a chance to embark on what is the most meaningful public service to date.
    That is the Hope Mentor Program, which SCC athletics director Mike Doig recently received information about.

    For the second year, the Pepsi Junior Golf Tour made a stop at Lincoln Homestead State Park Golf Course.

    The tour takes place from March until October, with 27 events, including an invite-only championship, along the way. Also part of the summer golf circuit are the Mountain Dew Junior Series and the Aquafina Junior Series.
    The event at Lincoln Homestead was the second event on the Pepsi Junior Golf Tour this season.

  • Brotherly bond


    All of Idle Hour Park lights up when Darrol Byrd comes to the plate.

    Byrd isn’t a big-time slugger or a hot college prospect. He plays tee ball.
    So what’s all the fuss about?
    First of all, he’s seven years old.
    Secondly, there’s Lesch-Nyhan disease. It’s a very rare disease that creates high uric acid in his stomach, which creates kidney stones.
    “As the kidney stones form, it depletes his muscle control,” Rea Byrd, his mother, said.

  • SCC soccer will see British...


    St. Catharine College soccer coach Tim Wolz headed to England on a recruiting trip a few months ago, hoping that the time and expense would pay off by bringing some quality players into the Patriot fold.

    Now the Patriot mentor has seen the fruits of his journey. Already signed for the 2011 season are Anthony Steele, a midfielder from Kent, and Ashley Woods, a midfielder from Manchester. Also expected to ink a scholarship offer soon is Jonathan Read, an outside defender from Kent.

  • Mid-South Conference wraps up...


    At the annual meeting of Mid-South Conference member schools on June 1 at Georgetown College, the year was reviewed and plans were made for the upcoming 2011-12 athletic seasons.
    The most notable change was in Mid-South Conference membership.

    Because it has petitioned to join the ranks of NCAA D-II schools, West Virginia Tech will not be eligible next season for post-season play in the MSC. All schools will still play the Bears in all sports, but the games will not count as conference contests.

    The popularity of archery in the middle and elementary schools has carried over to the high school level.

    Next school year, Washington County High School will have its own archery team.
    Dennis Walter, a man with much archery experience, has volunteered to coach the new team.
    Walter said he had been assisting in another school archery program when he heard through an acquaintance that the high school needed someone to coach, so he volunteered.
    The new coach is no stranger to the sport.
