    When the opening round of the 19th District tournament started last Wednesday at Bethlehem High School in Bardstown, Nelson County came in as the top seed with a 6-1 district record and a 17-8 overall mark. But costly turnovers by the Washington County Commanders only served to aid the Cards in a decisive 60-36 first-round win. For Nelson County, they would go on to knock off Bardstown for the district championship, 66-41.

    The St. Catharine College women’s basketball team has endured nearly every kind of illness, injury, bump and bruise that one can imagine during a season. From a financial standpoint, the team could have benefited by buying stock in companies that make crutches and knee braces. And, just when you think it couldn’t get worse, the mass of maladies even hit the head coach last week.

    SCC Sports Information

    The St. Catharine College Patriots split their final two regular-season conference games last week, losing at Georgetown and beating Lindsey Wilson at home. In doing so, J. T. Burton’s squad finished the regular season at 20-10 and 8-6 in the conference.

    That is a significant record in that it came after a 5-24 campaign last year when the Patriots competed for the first time as an NAIA team in the rugged Mid-South Conference. The 15-win turnaround is the best of any NAIA team in the nation this year.

    When the Patriots topped Robert Morris College in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader it marked the program’s 500th win. Then, with the win in Sunday’s first game against Miami-Middletown, head coach Luther Bramblett notched his 300th career win as Bat Pats skipper.

    “I really don’t have a lot to do with it,” said Bramblett. “When you have good players, you are going to win a lot of games.”

    With the 19th District Tournament approaching, the Washington County Commanderettes got some much-needed momentum Wednesday night as they hosted the LaRue County Lady Hawks in what turned out to be a thrill ride of a game. Although the young LaRue team put up a good fight, it would be the Commanderettes who would come away victorious as they held on for a 64-61 win.

    SCC Sports Information

    What does your team do for an encore after it wins a national championship? That is the question facing St. Catharine College softball coach Holly Smith. Ineligible last spring for the post-season in their first season of participation in the NAIA, the Patriots opted to play in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association. And in that tournament Smith’s squad won it all with a dramatic walk-off grand slam in the title game.
