    Area golfers hit the links Saturday morning for the first-ever Washington County Relay for Life Golf Scramble at Lincoln Homestead Golf Course.

    Heavy rains the day before made for sloppy conditions, but the skies began to clear around tee time.

    The shotgun start got under way at 9 a.m. with 15 teams climbing into their carts for a good cause.

    A barbeque lunch provided by Mordecai’s On Main was served at the turn.

    The quest for a national title begins Tuesday in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) eight-team, double-elimination tournament. St. Catharine now owns a 32-14 record, which could change this week if weather allows two games recently scheduled to be played.

    Just call them the Road Warriors. With four of their last five games on the road, and their next four away as well, the Washington County softball team has seen its fair share of the inside of a school bus. Maybe that’s why they’re happy to get out on the diamond and take it out on their opponents.

    It can be intimidating going into play against a team that is 14-0 against you over the past five seasons. It can be even more of a challenge when your two senior sluggers are away on a class trip while you match up against this Goliath of a team.

    Do you ever get the feeling that there is such a thing as a bizarro world where there is an opposite reality? I’m starting to believe in such a place because there is an increasing amount of evidence starting to pile up in support of this theory.
