    Please pardon the interruption

    Hey, what does a fella have to do to get a little time off? Apparently, you have to have a stroke!

    In case you haven’t noticed, the past couple of issues of The Springfield Sun have had something missing - me! It’s not that I planned it, but I’ve been out for two weeks recovering from what doctors say was a mild stroke.

    The Three Amigos. Three all-beef patties. The Three Musketeers. The Three Little Pigs. The Three Bears. The three former football Commanders.

    Such is the life for Shane Bueter, Stewart Jones and Ethan Devine as they try to fit in for The Fighting Tigers at Campbellsville University.

    Not much else finds common ground as easily as the two words that all three share — red shirt.

    You could say that high school football in Washington County is a lot like agriculture in Washington County. For one particular year, there’s a bumper crop, and then some years, there are rough patches. While the varsity Commanders finished 2009 with a 3-8 record, the seeds have already been planted for future harvests as the JV squad went 6-0, taking the Heartland Conference title and the freshman team finishing at a respectable 4-2. As one chapter in WC football closes, head coach Mark Perry sees good things ahead for his team.

  • Patriot women get first victory...

    SCC Sports Information

    The St. Catharine College women have won just one basketball game in four outings this year. While that may be a concern for most teams, Patriot head coach Lena Bramblett only sees good things as a result of the early tough schedule.

    “I can say that three of those four losses have made us a better team,” said Bramblett, whose squad split a pair of games in the last week. “We really played well in those losses.”

    Craig Mattingly began training in martial arts 20 years ago because he was interested in the mechanics of it. A fan of kung fu films as a child, he was intrigued by how a man getting along in years could throw people around as if they were light as a feather.

  • St. Catharine men start 3-0,...

    The varsity basketball programs at St. Catharine College have started the new season headed in different directions. While the men have gained three victories in as many games, the Patriot women remained winless through the first three games of a brutally tough early schedule.

  • Commanders fall in playoffs, 42-7

    In playoff football, it all comes down to a win-or-go-home situation. The Washington County Commanders (3-7) traveled to Tompkinsville Friday night to take on the Monroe County Falcons (6-4) in the opening round of the Class 2A playoffs, and coach Mark Perry’s team ran into a good, athletic squad.

    Washington County came in having won two of its last four games, including the regular-season finale over Campbellsville. On the other side of the field, Monroe County had dropped three of its last four, despite a 6-0 start to the season.

  • SCC men set to tip off hoops...

    In his first year as head coach of the Patriots, J.T. Burton says the demanding Mid-South Conference schedule was a “real eye-opener” for him. And now, as Burton prepares for his second campaign at St. Catharine, he hopes it is his own team that opens some eyes around the conference and the region.

    “You talk about teams that are very good in the half-court, that is what you have with every team in the conference,” said Burton. “Transfer players are important in this conference, ones that can play the tough defense that you need to win.”

  • WC tops Campbellsville, 21-20

    It came a day early, but the Washington County Commanders had a little trick for Campbellsville and a treat for the home fans in the regular season finale Friday night. The Commanders came away with a 21-20 win and some positive momentum heading into the playoffs.
