  • Gordon and Dunn continue success...

    The St. Catharine Patriots made a return trip to east central Indiana on Saturday, this time visiting Taylor University.

    The meet at Taylor would mark the second of the indoor season for the Patriots, and they would be looking for redemption and even continued success.

    The Patriots found that success in Neshaun Gordon (Louisville) and Tyler Dunn (Harrodsburg), who were coming off of first- and second-place finishes in the triple jump at Indiana Wesleyan.

  • SCC falls on the road to No. 8...

    Machera Calhoun (Fort Myers, Fla.) and Heather Sandlin (Florence) combined for 31 points despite the Lady Patriots (3-15, 1-11 MSC) falling to the No. 8 Tigers of Georgetown (16-4, 10-2 MSC).

    If one thing was certain for the Lady Patriots in 2013-2014, it is that they don’t fall to tough opponents for a lack of effort.

    Led by the stupendous guard play of Calhoun and Sandlin, the Lady Patriots kept the Tigers on their heels for the entire contest.

  • Patriots take Georgetown to wire

    The St. Catharine Patriots (13-8, 7-5 MSC) couldn’t overcome foul trouble against the No. 13 Georgetown Tigers (18-5, 9-3 MSC) falling 86-81 on Thursday night.

    The Patriots couldn’t take advantage of double digit scoring nights from Omar Skinner (New Castle, Del.), Romeo Lewis (Detroit, Mich.) and Will Tolefree (Stone Mountain, Ga.) en route to their five point loss to Georgetown on the road.

  • No Love Lost

    Marion County

    Last Saturday night, the Marion County Knights (17-6), downed WC 94-57 in a loss that would turn out to be the Commanders’  (2-16, 0-7) 12th consecutive at the hands of their biggest rival.

    For WC Head Coach Russell Burkhead, one of the biggest differences in the game was the Knights’ ability to force his team into playing at Marion’s run-and-gun pace.

    He believes that this played right into Marion’s hands.

  • Lady Patriots drop 10th straight

    Lindsey Wilson College
    The SCC Lady Patriots (3-14, 1-10 MSC) couldn’t hold on late against the visiting Lindsey Wilson College Blue Raiders (15-8, 5-6 MSC), despite a strong start.

    After keeping the game close against the Cumberland University Bulldogs in their last contest, the Lady Patriots didn’t waste any time proving to the Lindsey Wilson Blue Raiders that they were a much-improved squad.

  • Nautical Patriots take on loaded...

    After a dominating performance at Campbellsville, Hannah Spaulding (Springfield) led the Nautical Patriots into Union College to take on a powerful Bulldog squad.

    Spaulding led things off for the Patriots in the 200 freestyle, posting a 2:09.27 in the final round, just off her 2:06 mark in the seeding heat.

    Spaulding’s performance was good enough to snag a third-place finish and marked a 16-second improvement over her 2:25 mark at Campbellsville.

  • SCC fends off LWC men down the...

    The SCC Patriots (13-8, 7-5 MSC) rode the hot hands of Omar Skinner (New Castle, Del.) and Nick Porter (Owensboro) to defeat the visiting Lindsey Wilson College Blue Raiders (12-11, 3-8 MSC) on Saturday afternoon.

    After having his best defensive effort of the season against the Cumberland Bulldogs in the Patriots’ last contest, Nick Porter continued his career weekend, nailing down a career-high 18 points along with two steals in the Patriots’ victory over the Blue Raiders.

  • Bat Pats preview

    When the Patriots opened their season this Friday, it marked the 13th season opener for Luther Bramblett as the head coach at St. Catharine College.

    And this 13th winter has left a lot of questions as to how Bramblett thinks his Pats will do.

    “I like our team a lot,” Bramblett said. “The guys have worked extremely hard this fall and so far in January, but we’ve been on the field just three times. This weather has been the worst since I’ve been here and it has made it tough to prepare the way we’d like to.”

  • WC can't grab win

    Hart Co.
    Last Thursday, the WC Commanders (2-14, 0-7) travelled to Hart County to take on the Raiders (7-13) in a make-up game that was originally slated to take place on Jan. 25.

    And the Commanders started off slow, trailing by as much as 17 in the game before cutting their deficit to as little as three in the fourth quarter.

    But sluggish starts have been the norm for WC this season, according to Head Coach Russell Burkhead.

  • The Anatomy of a Rivalry

    Ten miles.

    Ten miles of asphalt is all that separate Washington County High School and Marion County High School.

    And ten miles is all that it takes to harbor “one of the best rivalries in the state,” according to Russell Burkhead, the current head coach of WC’s boys’ basketball squad and a WC player from 1978-1982.

    The teams aren’t in the same district in any sport, but the two teams play each year. Without fail.

    But even when one team is down and the other is up, the contests are still generally competitive.
