  • Hill heads to Houston


    There is one dude in Washington County that I am very, very jealous of.

    I try to keep things objective over here on the sports desk, but I can’t help acting like a University of Kentucky homer.
    When I found out on Friday afternoon that Kevin Hill of Alltech had won a free ticket to the Final Four in Houston, I was a pretty jealous guy.
    Then I found out he’d won an all-expenses paid trip, including a ride on the company private jet.
    Not a bad way to travel, I suppose.

  • Commanders nab win before...


    The Washington County High School baseball team nabbed a 6-0 win against Bell County (1-5) on Friday night, hours before they boarded a bus for Florida.

    The Commanders (6-3) jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first and cruised the rest of the way.
    Complete results from that game will be in next week’s edition.
    While in Florida, the Commanders dropped a 12-1 decision to Allen County-Scottsville (5-0).
    Complete results from that game will also be in next week’s edition.

  • WC girls keep rolling


    Washington County vs. Casey County

    Score: 8-4 Washington County
    When: Friday, April 4
    Where: Idle Hour Park

    Game highlights: A big comeback on Friday at Idle Hour Park would send the Commanderettes (5-2) softball squad into spring break smiling.
    Trailing 4-1 in the bottom of the sixth, Washington County reeled off seven runs and batted around to go up 8-4 against Casey County.

  • Bat Pats split conference series...


    After two mid-week games in which they scored 28 runs, the St. Catharine College baseball team’s bats went as cold as the weather at Mid-South Conference rival Lindsey Wilson over the weekend.

  • SCC softball gains “Mo” with...


    The week didn’t start well for Holly Smith’s St. Catharine College softball team. The Patriots were swept Tuesday in a Mid-South Conference doubleheader at Shawnee State. They then lost the opener of Saturday’s twin bill at home against MSC rival West Virginia Tech.

    But then the hits just kept coming as they beat West Virginia Tech in Saturday’s second game and swept a doubleheader Sunday against visiting Oakland City University. In those final three games the Patriots scored 45 runs.

  • Check the water


    Someone check the water, there must be something in it.

    It appears that coaches who drink the local water are enjoying remarkable success.
    Donnie Tyndall, now the head men’s basketball coach at Morehead State University, pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the NCAA tournament when the Eagles beat Louisville in the opening round (the real first round, not the “second round”).
    Tyndall served as the head coach at St. Catharine during the 1996-97 season.

  • Patriot basketball holds 4-0...


    The old axiom in athletics is that it is hard to beat a good team three times in one season. And while, indeed, it is hard to hit that trifecta, how hard must it be to watch the team you’ve owned thrice win a national championship.

    Such a scenario became a reality this year when Pikeville, an at-large team from the Mid-South Conference, won the NAIA National Championship in Kansas City. St. Catharine College beat the Bears twice in the regular season and also in the conference tournament semifinals.
