  • 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.

    Towering at well over six-feet tall, Kenya Turner gains a lot of attention on the basketball court.

    With her recent accolades, she’s adding more reason for opponents to notice her.
    Turner, a Washington County High School sophomore, was recently named to the Fifth Region all-region team as voted on by the Fifth Region Coaches Association.
    Turner received 15 out of a possible 16 votes to earn a spot on the team.

  • Thousands have viewed SCC's...

    I recently came across the clip, posted by St. Catharine College assistant basketball coach Beau Braden, on Facebook. It's a doozy by SCC junior guard Antoine Watson as he posterizes a player from Life University.

    The clip is 37 seconds long. Watson begins his ascent into the atmosphere starting around the 15 second mark. Say it with me folks: and one!

  • SCC softball set to begin


    The game of softball is all about pitching.
    Very seldom do quality teams engage in slugfests, as low scoring games are generally the norm.

    With that in mind, St. Catharine College head coach Holly Smith is very optimistic about the 2011 season.  The season begins Feb. 25 at home against Asbury College.
