    The bracket racket

    I’ve never really been a basketball fan, so my experience in picking brackets for the NCAA tournament is limited at best. So when the office decided to have a little contest, I was hesitant to expose my ignorance on paper, but I went ahead and filled out my brackets and turned them in.

    SCC Sports Information

    With seven wins in eight games last week, Holly Smith’s St. Catharine College softball team improved its record to 16-10. More importantly, two of the wins (against Cumberlands) were conference contests which kept the Patriots atop the standings with a 4-0 record.

    “We hadn’t been hitting the ball, so we just took batting practice every day,” said Smith. “And when we start hitting we play well in all parts of the game. Our pitching is better and we play better defense.”

    Junior first baseman Michael Smith (Fort Thomas, Ky.) dropped a squeeze bunt with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning to give Hanover College’s baseball team a 5-4 triumph against Capital University (Ohio) in the second game of a doubleheader Saturday, March 14, at the L.S. Ayres Athletic Complex.

    Michael Smith was 4-for-5 with a double and three runs scored.

    How often can someone say they are ministering and serving God by playing basketball? If Kelsey Hopson, pastor of Johnson Chapel A.M.E. Zion Church in Springfield has his way, there will be plenty of layups and amens on the hardwood this spring.

    Hopson, along with league director Felix Keene, are forming the Real Life Basketball League to be played at River of Life Church in Springfield.

    Despite some big hits, the WC Commanderettes softball team dropped their season opener 9-7 to Taylor County Monday.

    The Commanderettes got off to an early 2-0 start in the first inning as they held the Lady Cardinals hitless through the first two innings. Taylor County tied it up in the third and took a 4-2 lead in the fourth.

  • SCC drops doubleheaders

    SCC Sports Information

    The St. Catharine College softball team found the wet weather unsuitable for many of the games scheduled last week. And when the Patriots did hit the diamond, Holly Smith found the results unsuitable as well for her team. The Patriots, now 9-9, traveled to Midway College on Monday and lost both games, and then dropped a twin bill at Indiana University Southeast on Wednesday.

    Finding ways to win. That is the way Luther Bramblett summarized his team’s performance over the last week as the Patriots won all five of their games, and all of them by one run.

    “Overall our pitching staff has done a good job, but our offense has really carried us,” said the St. Catharine skipper, whose team has now won 10 consecutive games to go to 17-3 for the season. “What is most surprising is that we have won that many without having our full lineup in for most of those games.”

    Have mercy

    I’m trying to get into the World Baseball Classic, honestly. But it’s been difficult to keep my interest. Mostly because I’m set in my ways and I’m used to a certain way things are done.
