  • Patriots still alive in...


    The St. Catharine College baseball team (31-25-1) opened the Mid-South Conference tournament Friday at Campbellsville University with a big 9-3 win over the host Tigers, who came in as the number one seed.

    They followed that with an exciting 8-7 comeback victory Saturday against the University of the Cumberlands, en route to the winner’s bracket final. Sunday they fell to Shawnee State 8-4.

  • The rookie has arrived


    Webster needs to add a new word to next year’s dictionary.

    I’ve always heard that the arrival of a newborn brings sleep deprivation to a household.
    Folks, sleep deprivation doesn’t touch the state I’m in.
    In my farewell column at my last job, I announced that my wife and I would soon be drafting a rookie.
    After nine months of being extra nice to my wife (sorry honey, that was a limited warranty), the rookie has arrived.

  • Track team puts in busy week


    Despite the nasty weather, the Washington County High School track team was able to compete in two meets last week.

    On Thursday, the team participated in an all-comers meet at Marion County High School.
    The girls’ team finished fifth out of five teams with a total of 32 points, while the boys’ team finished third out of five teams with 39 points.
    Moriah Hourigan finished second in the 100-meter dash, with a time of 13.44 seconds. Shay Yocum finished fourth in the event at 13.62.

  • Sagrecy starts filling his staff


    He’s been on the job as Washington County’s new head football coach just over two weeks, and Eric Sagrecy has already started to fill his coaching staff.
    On Monday the former Washington County High and Georgetown College player announced that he was bringing on two coaches who followed a similar path in their careers.

    Bobby Joe Mattingly, a teacher at North Washington Elementary School, and Scott Mudd, a teacher at Washington County Middle School, were named the first two assistants on Sagrecy’s staff.

  • Track team competes at Marion...

    Second place went to Mikie Yates, Fred Armstrong, and Pat Cassitty; with an eight under 63.
    Third place went to Bill Frost, Brad Reynolds, and Travis Wheatley.
