  • 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.

  • Pavelich tosses a no-hitter

    An opening-season trip through Alabama and Tennessee left the St. Catharine baseball team with a 1-7 record, but Luther Bramblett’s Patriots found Edelen-Haydon Field to be just the remedy they needed.

    The Bat Pats won their home opener Friday, 11-1 over Holy Cross (Indiana), and then beat the same Saints team Saturday, 11-0.
    On Sunday, the Patriots were able to claim two more wins over Goshen College (Indiana) by scores of 5-4 and 10-0.

  • Patriots nab big win against...

    After a tough loss to Life University (Marietta, Ga.) on Tuesday, the St. Catharine College Patriots had to regroup for a key Mid-South Conference contest on Saturday at Campbellsville University.

    It took 44 minutes and 59 seconds to claim the victory, but J.T. Burton’s bunch escaped with a 78-76 win on a tip-in by Antoine Watson with less than one second to play in overtime.

  • Yeast takes HC job at Bryan...

    After three stops in Kentucky as an assistant coach, former University of Kentucky wide receiver Craig Yeast is moving up the ranks.

    Yeast accepted a head coaching and teaching position at Bryan Station High School in Lexington last week.
    “The Lord blessed me with the situation he wanted for me, so I’m happy about it,” Yeast said.
    The former college standout and NFL player said he’s already had a few interactions with his players at Bryan Station, and that all signs indicate things are heading in the right direction.

  • SCC basketball finishes up with...

    The St. Catharine College basketball teams have two remaining games on the regular-season schedule, at home Thursday and Saturday against Cumberlands and Lindsey Wilson respectively. And all of the games have post-season implications for the Patriot men and women.
    The men are currently tied for second place in the Mid-South Conference with Cumberlands at 12-4, one game behind first place Georgetown. With victories Thursday and Saturday J.T. Burton’s team can clinch a second seed in the upcoming conference tournament to be played in Frankfort March 4-6.
