    It’s that time again. People have been raking up fallen leaves by the bagful, hooded sweatshirts and jeans replace tee-shirts and shorts as the choice of daily attire, and the morning air is filled with the scent of burning firewood. Yes, it’s time for high school basketball in Washington County.

    Note: Due to an early holiday deadline, only highlights from last Tuesday’s game against Alice Lloyd College were available at press time. See more coverage in the next issue of The Springfield Sun.

    The Mid-South Conference recognized soccer athletes last week at the conference tournament’s final four played in Lexington. A total of eight Patriots received recognition on the all-conference squads.

    Four women from St. Catharine received honorable mention all-conference. Freshman Nicolette Catlett and sophomore Sally Mattingly, both from Bardstown, received the honor, as did Danielle Mistler, a senior from Harrison, Ohio and Krista Russell, a freshman from Independence, Ky.

  • Patriots start 5-0

    SCC Sports Information

    In his first season as head coach of the St. Catharine College Patriots, J.T. Burton notched a not-so-enviable 5-24 record. Now, two weeks into his second campaign, Burton has already equaled last year’s win total.

    The Patriots upped their record to 5-0 last week with road wins against Southern Polytechnic State (Marietta, Ga.), 77-67, and Tennessee Wesleyan 76-64, the latter being Burton’s alma mater.

    In its first-ever Mid-South Conference volleyball tournament the St. Catharine College team had a short stay. But the Patriots did not go down without a fight as they fell 3-0 to Campbellsville last Tuesday at the Frankfort Convention Center.

    “I couldn’t be more proud of these players,” said St. Catharine athletic director Mike Doig, who served as interim coach. “They were able to stay focused through some difficult situations to put together a decent season.”

    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.”
