  • Commanderettes stop losing...

    Mired in the second-longest losing streak (at eight games) under Head Coach Bernard Smalley, the WC Commanderettes (3-14, 1-6) were able to break out of their slump at Campbellsville on Monday night and pull out a convincing 49-25 win over the Lady Tigers (3-17).

    The win was WC’s third of the year.

  • WCMS splits with Bardstown

    The cold temperatures outside seemed to carry over to the basketball court as the WCMS eighth-graders struggled to knock down early shots in the game against Bardstown Middle.

    With early foul trouble forcing Jailen Statemen to the bench, Cameron Willis and Devin Hurst had to step up.

    WCMS went to the locker room at halftime trailing 25-24.

    The third quarter saw the game go back and forth, as neither team would lead by more than four points.

  • SCC falls late against Tigers

    The St. Catharine Patriots (11-7, 5-4 MSC) couldn’t overcome costly mistakes to hold off the Campbellsville Tigers (8-9, 3-6 MSC), falling 67-57 on Thursday.

    Thursday night Mid-South Conference games haven’t been kind to the Patriots this season as they fell to 1-4 on the year with their most recent loss in that department.

  • Lady Patriots lose to...

    The St. Catharine Lady Patriots (3-12, 1-8 MSC) gave the No. 8 Tigers of Campbellsville (17-2, 8-1 MSC) all that they could handle on Thursday night.

    With point guard Machera Calhoun (Fort Meyers, Fla.) missing in action for most of the contest, the St. Catharine Lady Patriots challenged Campbellsville until the very end.

  • Commanderettes blow halftime lead

    Despite a promising 20-13 halftime lead, the Washington County Commanderettes (2-11, 1-5) were unable to pull out their third win of the season against the Caverna Lady Colonels (12-7) in the Fifth Region All-A Classic.

    As the host team, WC had a bye for the first round of the tournament and met Caverna in the semifinals after the Colonels’ defeat of the Campbellsville Lady Tigers.

    And WC started the game off strong defensively, holding the high-powered Colonels offense to only four first-quarter points.

  • WC can't hold on against...

    Unlike in games past, the Washington County Commanders (2-12, 0-6) got off to a fast start against the Caverna Colonels (8-10) last Thursday night, jumping out to a 10-4 lead in the opening minutes of the game.

    However, like so many times before, the Commanders were unable to finish the game with a victory, falling to the Colonels by a score of 76-66.

    But the main point of emphasis for Head Coach Russell Burkhead is that the team is improving and giving an all-out effort each night.

  • Spaulding ignites Patriots in...

    It was a weekend to remember for the St. Catharine Nautical Patriots as they took to the waves in Campbellsville to battle the Tigers and the Wildcats of Bethel.

    After a long stint out of the water, the Lady Patriot swimmers were ready to get back in the water and pick up where they had left off before the break.

  • SCC falls to the Bears on the...

    The St. Catharine Lady Patriots (3-11, 1-7 MSC) couldn’t overcome first-half shooting woes to fall to the Shawnee State Bears (9-9, 2-5 MSC) on the road 82-52.

    SCC would like to forget the first half of Saturday’s contest at Shawnee State, as they were only able to muster 16 points on 15 percent shooting. The Patriots’ struggles started early, with the Bears tearing off a 16-0 run. They would go on to take a 27-6 lead before Stacie Shrout (Florence) was able to hit one of her two first-half shots from behind the arc with just over six minutes remaining.

  • WCMS sweeps competition


    In the final regular-season home game, the eighth-graders of WCMS got off to a slow start against Bloomfield Middle School.

    However, the Generals managed to take a 25-15 halftime lead into the locker room.

    WCMS came out strong in the third quarter, going on a 14-4 run.

    The Generals ended the contest with a 52-27 victory.

    Jailen Statemen led the team in scoring with 22 points while Cameron Willis and Devin Hurst chipped in with 11 and eight points, respectively.

  • SCC downs Shawnee in comeback

    After falling to Rio Grande, the St. Catharine Patriots (11-6, 5-3 MSC) rebounded with a win over their next Ohio foe Shawnee State (8-10, 2-5 MSC) in comeback fashion 68-62.

    In their last contest, the Patriots had fallen victim to numerous runs in a close contest with rival Rio Grande, but with their backs against the wall in Portsmouth, Ohio, the Patriots found a way to survive the Bears.

    After falling behind 11-0 early on in the contest, Head Coach JT Burton made a complete line-up change and looked to the Patriot bench to rally.
