    Washington County Little League Baseball opened the 2010 season last week at Idle Hour Park.

    The 9-10-year-old season started last Monday with the Braves beating the Marlins, 6-3. Landon Taylor pitched 5 2/3 innings in the win, striking out 16 and giving up just one hit. Devin Hurst took the loss. Cameron Willis and Christian Smith had two hits each for the Braves, while the Marlins’ only hit came off the bat of Jake Yates.

    The 12 seniors on the St. Catharine College baseball team won 143 games in their four-year stint as Patriots. And it looked very much like the dynamic dozen would notch victory number 144 on their bats last Thursday in the Mid-South Conference tournament played at Campbellsville University.

    In sports, as it is in life, sometimes it’s just not your day. The Washington County Commanderette softball team had one of those days Tuesday evening as they were no-hit by Mercer County in an 18-0, three-inning rout. The Titans scored 13 runs in the first, one in the second and four in the fourth, touching eighth-grade starting pitcher Hannah Coulter for 21 hits.

    As the old saying goes, “It’s one thing to get to the top, it’s another thing to stay there.” That’s what Washington County boys’ baseball head coach Derek Schuler is experiencing right now as the Commanders have locked up the top seed in the upcoming district tournament later this month, but they feel like every game from now until the end of the season is important.

    The St. Catharine College softball team didn’t take advantage of some scoring opportunities last Tuesday in the first two innings at Georgetown in the Mid-South Conference Softball Tournament. And those turned out to be the only chances they had in the 5-0 defeat to the Tigers.

    After losing the opening game of the Mid-South Conference tournament, the St. Catharine College softball team was able to stave off elimination by winning its next two games to keep the season alive.

    In the tournament played at Millennium Park in Danville, Holly Smith’s Patriots dropped the initial game of the tournament Thursday by a 9-1 score to Campbellsville University, but the St. Catharine nine rebounded Friday to beat Pikeville 7-6 and University of the Cumberlands 3-0.

    A capacity crowd came out Monday night to watch a basketball tournament at the Mackville Community Center. But this was no ordinary night of hoops action for those in attendance. This was a night of “celebrity” donkey basketball.

    Several politicians, business owners and members of the community did their best to ride their donkeys while trying to outscore the competition. But most of the players didn’t have much time to make shots because they were trying to control their mounts.

    The Washington County Commanders improved their district record to a perfect 4-0 with big wins over Nelson County and Bethlehem this past week.

    WC beat Nelson County 3-2 at Tom Bystrek Field in Springfield Wednesday. The lead changed hands a couple of times, but in the end, it was a bases-loaded sac fly by senior first baseman Jordan Settles that allowed sophomore shortstop Trae Abell to tag from third and cross the plate for the win.

    One of the catchwords in today’s athletic lexicon is “focus.” Coaches talk to the players about the need for it, announcers will tell us who they think has such and who doesn’t. But all who saw Friday’s doubleheader against the University of the Cumberlands would agree that the St. Catharine College baseball team was focused on the task at hand.
