  • Commanderettes to grapple with...


    The Commanderettes have a second-round date with Green County in the Fifth Region All “A” Classic on Wednesday.

    Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m. EST at Caverna High School.
    The Dragons (4-13) knocked off Campbellsville in the first round to set up the meeting.
    Green County is without star player Micah Jones, who lost her season to injury.

  • Out of the gym


    Straight up, straight down.
    That’s Jared Kelty under the basket, by the way. Straight up, straight down. Up off two feet. Elbows above the rim.

    The senior is tall by ordinary standards, but is no giant by basketball standards. So to see Kelty go up, up, up above the rim is to see mouths in the crowd go agape.
    The style in which Kelty jumps is also drawing some attention.

  • Growing in all directions

     

    When Mike Doig became the athletics director at St. Catharine in 2008, one might say the entire program was still in its infancy.

  • 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.

    Leonard Abell, who played for the Commanders from 1989 to 1993 and for St. Catharine briefly, was named the Commanderettes head coach on Friday by WCHS Principal Paul Terrell.
    Abell will take the job on an interim basis for one year.
    “I think he’ll do a really great job,” Terrell said.

    A new member of the Washington County High School girls’ basketball 500-point club was initiated Tuesday, Jan. 4, during the first quarter of the Commanderettes’ game against Bardstown.

    Junior Shay Yocum reached the milestone early in the game and finished with 19 points in a 52-45 loss to the Lady Tigers.
