    There were a couple of “firsts” in last week’s golf tournament for the St. Catharine College women’s golf team. It was the first time that most of the team, being freshmen, played in a college tournament. And, as coach Joan Rizer said, it was the first time that a team of hers has played golf in the snow.

    SCC Sports Information

    Campbellsville University is ranked ninth in the nation in NAIA baseball – and there is a good reason for that. The Tigers bring a potent offense, solid defense and better-than-average pitching to the field. And that combination spelled trouble for St. Catharine in Thursday’s doubleheader as the visiting Tigers swept the twin bill by scores of 17-5 and 10-1.

    Daniel Murphy, grandson of Springfield resident Ann Murphy, recently celebrated his 24th birthday on April 1. But you could say he didn’t celebrate until he smacked his first home run of the season on Opening Day against the Reds in Cincinnati.

    He also added an RBI on a bases-loaded fielder’s choice that knocked in the second and deciding run for the Mets as they beat the Reds 2-1 on April 6.

    “It’s the little things.” You hear that cliché all the time, but for the Washington County Commanderettes, it happens to be true. Little things like missing a tag or cut-off here and there are adding up to big trouble for ladies.

    The team is off to an 0-4 start after dropping home games against Campbellsville and being no-hit by Nelson County last week.
