    I had no idea when I moved to Springfield that I would be granted a front row seat to one of Kentucky’s premier sporting events – racing! Now rather than hold these “need for speed” events at a sanctioned NASCAR venue or even on a dirt track, the participants of these events have cleverly decided to hold them on the public roadways.

    It’s been a busy week for the Washington County volleyball team as the squad played nine teams in eight days. The Commanderettes started play with a 6-5 record on Sept. 2. After back-to-back losses to Central Hardin and Marion County, which saw WC getting swept in both outings, the WC ladies looked to redeem themselves against a tough Campbellsville squad.

    I'm a big fan of the Andy Griffith Show, and one of my favorite episodes is the one where his son Opie learns to throw temper tantrums from his friend Arnold. Of course, Andy, in his infinite wisdom, sees right through Opie's deceit and, as Barney Fife would put it, nips it in the bud.

    Special to the Sun

    St. Catharine College volleyball coach Juanita Mangan is quick to point out to her players how tough the early schedule has been, which has resulted in the Patriots getting off to an 0-11 start in their first season of competition in the NAIA.

    Special to the Sun

    The St. Catharine College men’s and women’s soccer teams, both coached by Paul Patton, are now two weeks into the regular season. The Patriots recorded their first two wins last weekend in Ohio to improve their record to 2-3 while the Lady Patriots are currently 1-3 in the early going.

    “For the most part all of our games have been close,” said Patton. “We have played some good teams and will play many more good ones when we get into the conference games.”

    It would be safe to say that two volleyball teams couldn’t be more evenly matched that those from West Virginia Tech and St. Catharine College. The two squads played two Mid-South Conference matches at St. Catharine Saturday and each won one. And both matches went all five games as the two teams battled to get their first wins of the season.

    The LaRue County Hawks rushed themselves to a 52-34 win over Washington County on a rainy Friday night. In addition to the football, the field and the players, the hopes of the Commander fans were also dampened as LaRue County was nearly unstoppable with their running game.
