    Special to The Sun

    In regular-season games this year the Taylor and Washington county softball teams were separated by one run in a two-game split. On Monday in Radcliff, in the first round of the 5th Region tournament, the two teams couldn’t have been farther apart.

    Taylor County used 16 free passes, served up by two Commanderette pitchers, and run-ruled WC 12-0 in five innings.

    The Commanderette’s 11-9 victory over Bethlehem last Monday put them in the 19th District championship game the following day.

    SCC Sports Information

    For one of his baseball teams during the eight years that he has coached at St. Catharine College, Luther Bramblett distributed shirts with the letters WTLG on the back. The meaning of the letters was unclear to the players until Bramblett decoded the message – Win The Last Game.

    But even with the message explained, it is a goal that very few athletes are able to attain. Bramblett’s 2009 squad did not get such shirts; but they are the first team in St. Catharine history to boast that they did WTLG.

    Also on May 11, the Cubs edged the Reds 1-0 in 9-10-year-old play. Steven Thompson got the win while D.T. Yocum took the loss.
