  • Track team makes it without ‘...


    Last season, Washington County High School sent track athletes to the state meet for the first time in at least five years.
    Impressive, right?

    Add to the equation that those athletes, like all the other county track athletes before them, did it without the ‘luxury’ of proper facilities, and then their feat seems highly improbable.
    As  many athletics enthusiasts in the county know, it’s always been this way at Washington County High School.

  • SCC first baseman recently named...


    St. Catharine College first baseman Justine Paddock was recently named as the Mid-South Conference Player of the Week for March 21-27.

    She had five multi-hit games in the week, including two three-hit games and a four-hit game.
    Paddock leads the Mid-South Conference with a .538 batting average, and a .769 slugging percentage.
    She is tied for second in the conference with 35 hits, and third in RBI with 26.
     

  • Carr named to All-American team...


    St. Catharine College’s Kashiff Carr has been rewarded for his excellent season on the hardwood with a national honor recently.

    Carr, a 6-6 junior guard from Philadelphia, was named to the NAIA Division I All-American second team.
    Ervin Williams, the Patriots’ 6-9 senior center, received All-American honorable mention recognition.
    Karr became eligible at the semester break for St. Catharine, and averaged 21 points over the 21 games he played.

  • Bat Pats still in the hunt for...


    There is just one weekend series left in the Mid-South Conference regular season, and the scenarios as to how the post-season conference tournament might look are as numerous as the spring rainstorms.

    After losing three of four MSC games at Georgetown last weekend, Luther Bramblett’s team now stands in fourth place in the West Division.
    They can make up a lot of ground this weekend when the second place University of the Cumberlands visits for four games.

  • Patriot softball goes 2-4: Smith...


    St. Catharine College softball coach Holly Smith knows how it is to have a team peak at the right time of the season.

    Last year the Patriots had a late season surge that carried them to the semifinals of the Mid-South Conference tournament.
    Two years ago, Smith’s team came together at season’s end to win the National Championship in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association.
    Smith is hoping for the same magic this year as her team battles for a favorable playoff position in the upcoming Mid-South Conference tournament.

  • A chance to give

    There’s a team out there that needs a coach. Almost anyone could do it.

    A person doesn’t have to be a school employee. All you need is a little bit of class time.
     The team that needs a coach is a team that doesn’t technically exist yet.
    Right now, there’s a pretty successful archery program at North Washington Elementary School.
    Students from fourth through eighth grade can participate in a sport that has every reason to be popular in this part of the world.

  • Archery team hits the mark;...

     

    The North Washington Elementary archery team recently sent two participants to the state competition, but that’s nothing new.
    The program, which started at North Washington about eight years ago, is no stranger to state.
