  • Lady Pats win two of three


    The St. Catharine College women’s basketball team continued its near .500 play last week with two wins in three games, all at home.

    The 2-1 week gave Lena Bramblett’s squad an 8-10 overall mark. With a split of the two conference games last week the Patriots stand 3-3 in the Mid-South Conference, which puts them in fifth place in the 10-team league.

  • Patriots take over first place...

    SCC Sports Information

    In less than three years as a member of the NAIA, J.T. Burton’s St. Catharine College Patriots have garnered national attention.

    That exposure has increased even more this year with wins over some nationally ranked NAIA opponents and an exhibition victory over Bellarmine University, who at the time was ranked first in NCAA D-II.

  • WCHS baseball team to host chili...

    The Washington County High School baseball team will be hosting a chili supper on Feb. 5 from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the WCHS cafeteria.

    Admission is $6 for adults and $3 for children.
    The price of admission includes chili, peanut butter sandwiches, tea and desserts.
    Tickets can be purchased from baseball players or at the door the night of the chili supper.
    Three baskets will be auctioned off, including a University of Kentucky basket, a Washington County basket and a car care basket.

  • SCC keeps growing


    When I was very young, I used to have growing pains in my shins.

    It hurt at the time but later in life I enjoyed the benefit of my father’s height. Well, some of his height. I’ll never catch up to his 6-4 frame.
    The St. Catharine College athletics program is also experiencing growth. Lucky for them, they are not experiencing any shin pain that I am aware of.
    The local sports community is buzzing about SCC right now, and I look for that to increase as the athletics program expands.

  • Abell named softball coach


    A name long associated with baseball in Washington County will soon try  coaching softball.

    Abell will take the job on an interim basis for one year.
    “I think he’ll do a really great job,” Terrell said.

  • Rivalries old and new


    The Commanderettes take a break from district action this week to take on one unfamiliar opponent and one familiar rival.

    On Saturday, the Commanderettes travel to the Roby Dome in Lebanon to play in the Autism Awareness Classic.

  • All “A” action


    After facing a murderer’s row of competition, the Commanders have one last tough opponent before the start of the Fifth Region All “A” Classic.

    Washington County is set to travel to Bardstown on Friday to face the Tigers (8-3).
    Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m. at Bardstown High School.
    The last time around the Tigers used their length, speed and size to press the Commanders to a 95-59 defeat.
    This  time around, Commanders head coach Russell Burkhead looks to do better on the boards.
