    The Washington County Commanderettes opened the 2010 softball season on the road March 23 with a trip to Burgin. WC took a 2-1 lead after the first inning. By the time the top of the second inning was over, the Lady Bulldogs didn’t know what had hit them, as WC reeled off 10 more runs to go up 12-2.

    For the Commanderettes in the top of the third, it was a little like Top 40 radio - the hits just kept on coming as WC plated eight more and added four more in the fourth to wallop the Lady Bulldogs, 24-3.

    SCC Sports Information

    The St. Catharine College softball team spent most of the early season hanging around the .500 mark. But now Holly Smith finds her team mired in a nine-game losing streak that has dropped the Patriots to 7-19 overall and 1-7 in the Mid-South Conference.

    Offensive woes plagued the Patriots last week when they lost six games while scoring just nine runs. Four of the six losses came to conference opponents.

    SCC Sports Information

    Tim Wolz is not unfamiliar with soccer in the Mid-South Conference. For eight years he coached soccer at the University of the Cumberlands, where he was named Conference Coach of the Year in 2002.

    SCC Sports Information

    Since Abner Doubleday threw out the first pitch, baseball experts have held that the key to successful seasons are centered on good pitching and defense. And while most will still subscribe to that philosophy, St. Catharine College head coach Luther Bramblett sees another component that is fairly important.

    “We have had solid pitching and have played good defense all season, but now we are starting to hit the ball,” said Bramblett. “We are executing on offense and doing the little things offensively that win ballgames.”

    The batters are hitting. The runners are getting on base. But home plate has become unfamiliar territory for the St. Catharine College softball team. In 10 games last week Holly Smith’s Patriots dented the plate just 15 times. And the infrequency of visiting home sweet home left the Patriots with a 2-8 record for the week and a 7-13 overall slate.
