  • WC archery competes in regionals


    In their recent regional matchup at Central Hardin, no WC archers were able to qualify for the state tournament.

    However, for Head Coach Jeff Grigsby, the most important thing for each of his athletes was seeing improvement from their previous shoots.

    And he was not disappointed.

    “All I asked of them was to better their last scores, and most of them did that,” Grigsby said. “That’s always good. It’s definitely a good sign.”

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Tale of Two...

    There are two distinct, separate sides to India Yocum.

    On the basketball court, she is a self-described “no-nonsense” player who wants to win.

    But once she has dressed out of her WC uniform and back into her everyday wardrobe, pegging her as a basketball player would be difficult for even the most astute observer.

    When the postseason starts in basketball, it’s known as the second season, and for Nelson County, the second season began with a tremendous 75-58 19th District Tournament victory Monday over Washington County.

    The game saw four distinct runs, with the Commanders (2-23) getting off to a hot start but the Cardinals racing ahead by halftime, only to see Washington County make a big run to take a 48-47 lead just before the end of the third quarter.

  • SCC splits weekend series with...

    The St. Catharine College Baseball squad (4-8) split their weekend series with visiting Indiana Tech (2-3-1). The Patriots won both openers, only to see the Warriors answer back both days to win the nightcap.

    The third time was the charm for Washington County as they eliminated Bardstown on Monday night, 59-45, in the opening round of the girls’ 19th District Tournament.

    The Commanders avenged a pair of regular-season defeats to the Tigers by seven and 27 points, riding a monster 22-point first-half effort by senior Jennifer Keene.

    Washington County scored the first 12 points of the game and never looked back.

  • 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.

    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.”
