    During the supper, a silent auction will take place for three separate baskets featuring car products, UK products and Commander products.

    Tickets can be purchased at the door or from a member of the Commander baseball team.

  • Once again, Patriots knock off...

    SCC Sports Information

    Matt Stearsman, assistant coach to J.T. Burton for the men’s basketball team at St. Catharine College, made a pre-season prediction that if the Patriots stayed healthy they could find themselves among the leaders of the perennially powerful Mid-South Conference. That prognostication may have seemed a bit bold after last season when the Patriots completed their first NAIA season with a 5-24 record that included a 1-11 conference slate.

    Hart County wanted to spoil the night for the Washington County Commanders last Thursday night, but that’s just not how it worked out for the Raiders. With seconds to go, WC senior Joseph Hamilton hit a clutch three-point shot to tie the score and send the game to overtime.

    But one OT wasn’t enough to settle this battle, as the Commanders forged ahead in the second OT and came away with a 59-54 road win in Munfordville.

    The Washington County Commanderettes got a big win against Campbellsville last week, beating the Lady Eagles 52-32.

    “We won, but I was disappointed,” said head coach Bernard Smalley. “We’re the type of team that has to play hard every game. We can’t turn the switch on and off, and there was no emotion in that game.”

    Freshman Kenya Turner led WC with 15 points, followed by sophomore Shay Yocum with 13.

    Special to The Sun

    After a successful year of shows, the Kentucky Walking Horse Association High Points were presented at the group’s annual awards banquet on Jan. 15 in Lexington. Some local horsemen and owners were honored as part of the ceremony.

    Rolling Acres Farms and Stables, owned by Bob and Vickie Stannard of Springfield, earned eight awards in five categories. In the Two-year-old Stallion category, He’s Puttn On The Ritz took fourth place, while Walk Time Charlie placed third.

    SCC Sports Information

    When the college baseball season opens Friday at Williams Baptist University in Walnut Ridge, Ark., St. Catharine coach Luther Bramblett will have 14 seniors suit up, 12 of them entering their fourth season in a Patriot uniform. And while any coach would enjoy that luxury, it is uncharted territory for the Bat Pats, who will be playing their second season as a four-year program in the NAIA and the Mid-South Conference.

    Is it over yet?

    Well, here it is early Tuesday morning and I think right about now is when the Super Bowl is scheduled to end. Keep in mind that the pre-game shows started somewhere around last October!

    A slam dunk of winter weather has forced the cancellation of tonight's high school basketball games between Washington County and Taylor County in Springfield. The games are currently being re-scheduled.

    SCC Sports Information

    Just when Lena Bramblett didn’t think the injury bug could get worse for her St. Catharine College women’s team – it did last week. To shore up the depleted varsity roster, Bramblett brought guard Brittany Wieber up from the J.V. squad for Thursday’s game against visiting Georgetown. Then, in practice last weekend, Wieber suffers an ankle injury that could possibly end her season after just one game.
