  • Turner and Yocum turn it on

    While leading the Commanderettes to their first winning season since 2004-05, sophomore Kenya Turner and junior Shay Yocum have been climbing up the ranks in school history.

    Both players entered the 500 career-points club this season, but since then they’ve added some new records.
    Turner joined an elite group of Washington County High School girls’ basketball players when she netted 502 points this season.
    She becomes the ninth player in school history to notch 500 points or more in a season.
    Joining her on that list are:

  • Purdom and Abell named to all-...

    Washington County High School senior Will Purdom and junior Trae Abell were named to the 19th District all-tournament team after their solid play in the district tournament.

    Purdom netted 16 points, while Abell added 17 for the Commanders in their first-round loss to Bardstown.

  • Beech River boys talk turkey,...

    Some boys that hunt by the Beech River are trying to make it big by talking turkey.

    Well, kind of.

    Three friends, Brandon Coslow, Steven Yaste and Stephen Parrott, started Beech River Game Calls a few years ago, and are picking up steam in the turkey- call world.
    They make turkey calls of all kinds, and have even added something new to the market.

  • Bat Pats sweep four weekend games

    Luther Bramblett’s Patriot baseball team played five games last week and nearly completed the week unblemished.
    The Bat Pats won four games over the weekend, and ended with a tie last Tuesday at Asbury University.
    The 4-0-1 week left St. Catharine with a 9-7-1 record after they started 1-7 on a southern road trip to start the season.  
    The week’s action started with a 13 inning contest at Asbury that ended in a 6-6 tie.

  • Patriots head to conference...

    J.T Burton is acutely aware of the pitfalls that can accompany any post-season conference tournament.

    But the St. Catharine College head coach is also confident, after two impressive wins last week, that his Patriots are playing their best basketball of the season as they enter Mid-South Conference tourney action Friday in Frankfort.

  • Patriot women drop final two...

    The St. Catharine College women faced two tough opponents at home to close out the regular season.
    Lena Bramblett’s team came out on the short end with an 80-67 loss to Cumberlands on Thursday, and a 76-54 setback to Lindsey Wilson on Saturday.
    The two defeats gave the Patriots a final regular season slate of 11-19 overall, and 6-12 in the conference.
    They hoped to regain some of their lost momentum with a win Monday night in a Mid-South Conference play-in game against UVA-Wise.

  • Patriots open conference...

    With Saturday’s win over Lindsey Wilson, the St. Catharine College Patriots secured the second seed in the upcoming Mid-South Conference tournament at the Frankfort Convention Center.
     J.T. Burton’s squad will tip off Friday at 4 p.m. against the winner of the West Virginia Tech/ Rio Grande game that will be played Monday in West Virginia.
    The Patriots will take a 20-7 overall record into the tournament, and a 14-4 conference slate which put them one game behind Georgetown in the regular season.

    Turner received 15 out of a possible 16 votes to earn a spot on the team.
