    It was the third loss in as many games for the Washington County Commanders as they fell 67-40 to North Bullitt on the road Saturday night after opening the 2008-09 season at home with an 86-59 loss against Taylor County on Dec. 2 and a 73-58 loss to Madison Southern at Berea College on Thursday night.

    The Commanders’ lack of size is going to be a big hurdle to overcome this season, a fact that became all too clear as WC opened the season against Taylor County.

    With back-to-back losses to start the season, the Washington County Commanderettes are off to a shaky start.

    The girls opened the season at home hosting Taylor County on Dec. 2.

    The Commanderettes got strong outings from Shay Yocum, Pooh Railey and Lizzy Haydon in the first half, although Taylor County had built a 31-24 lead at the break thanks to some strong post play.

The two setbacks give the Patriots a 1-12 slate with one game remaining in the first semester schedule.

    Saturday’s basketball game between the St. Catharine College Patriots and the visiting University of Rio Grande is not one that either coach will want to use as a textbook example of shooting proficiency. St. Catharine shot 26 percent from the field while Rio Grande found the mark just 30 percent of the time.

    But in the end the Red Storm prevailed 56-51 after seeing an 18-point second half lead completely disappear. The win gave Rio Grande a 5-3 record while the Patriots evened their record at 6-6.

    The Commanders lost 86-59 to a Taylor County team loaded with size.

    "They're (Taylor County) one of the top teams out there right now," said WC head basketball coach Paul Bodenhamer after the game. "They're tough, we just don't have the size to match."

    St. Catharine College head coach Lena Bramblett has used one word most of this season to describe what she needs from her Patriot basketball team – consistency. That trait, or the lack thereof, was evident again last week as St. Catharine won two of three games to put its record at 6-5.

    To use an old cliché, one might say that the St. Catharine College Patriots are the best 1-10 team in the state. At this early juncture of the season, J.T. Burton’s team is probably the only team with 11 games played as the Patriots became road warriors last week with five games in seven days.
