    The St. Catharine College softball team found the wet weather unsuitable for many of the games scheduled last week.

    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.”

    Mother Nature hasn’t been nice to Springfield so far in 2009, but that’s not going to stop the Washington County baseball and softball teams from taking the field next Monday.

    Coach Derek Schuler’s Commanders open the season March 23 on the road against North Hardin, who is coming off a 5-21 season. Washington County finished 10-18 last year, but Schuler says that if things fall into place, the Commanders could do well this year.
