    In college soccer action last week the St. Catharine College men won one and lost one to bring their record to 4-2 for the season. At home Sunday they fell to Shawnee State (Ohio) 1-0. On Saturday the Patriots downed visiting Ohio Christian University 2-0.

    The 1-1 week left Paul Patton’s team with a 4-2 record as they ready themselves for Mid-South Conference play that starts Saturday with a game at West Virginia Tech.

    Did you see that?

    Sometimes there are moments in sports when everything comes together and makes our jobs worth every second we spend on the field, beside the court or behind the desk.

    This past Friday night, the football Commanders traveled to Lincoln County. While there have been signs of life in the WC offense this year, their 0-3 start had some questioning the team.

    It’s not easy to beat 2-1 odds, but when you only have four team members like the Washington County Commanderette golf team, and visiting Nelson County brings eight girls to the match, you have to hang tough and take on the Lady Cards despite being double-teamed.

    Although Nelson County left Springfield with the match win, sophomore Callie Harmon tied for lowest individual score (46) with Lady Card Kim Kasama.

    Although the term “Death Valley” sounds menacing and conjures feelings of desolation and foreboding, the Washington County Commanders have found the field at Lincoln County High School in Stanford, Ky., a pleasurable place to play. WC has never lost on that field, defeating Garrard County 33-28 in 2007, and winning 35-30 over home team Lincoln County in the 2008 Death Valley Bowl. Washington County was hoping to add a third win this past Friday night as the 0-3 Commanders cracked helmets with the 1-2 Patriots.

    Some sports are tougher than others, but one of the toughest has to be mixed martial arts, and Springfield native Deon Spalding is the reigning heavyweight champion.

    Spalding competed in Hardrock MMA 12: Night of the Champions on Aug. 15 at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre in Shepherdsville. Competing as a member of Team Animal, Spalding went one-on-one with Michael “PK” Parker for the vacated Heavyweight belt.

    First, head softball coach Holly Smith took the stage to introduce returning team members from the championship squad. The team intro was followed by a slide show from the title game, accompanied by a play-by-play re-enactment of the final at-bats.

    After a dormant period, Washington County High School is fielding a soccer team this year. Yes, a soccer team. And though the team has yet to win their first game this season, head coach Emily McConnell knows that this is a building year, and that the players have a lot to learn and a long way to come.

    “It’s an all-girls JV team,” said McConnell. “Some of the girls at the school presented site-based council with the idea of reinstating the team, so it was a student-motivated effort.”
