    In a busy week of college baseball, it was very easy to pick out the highlight for the St. Catharine College Patriots. That came Wednesday when Luther Bramblett’s team traveled to Southeast Missouri State and left with an 11-9 victory. It was the first time the Bat Pats had ever faced a NCAA Division I opponent and, as sweet as the win was, Bramblett says it comes with possible repercussions.

    Outside looking in

    It’s not easy being a sports fan and a sports writer at the same time. I’m a die-hard baseball fan, and it’s been a little frustrating the past couple weeks while I cover two baseball teams and two softball teams.

    The spring-like weather late last week afforded the Washington County Commanderettes softball team a chance to get outside and practice on the field. The atmosphere was one of fun, but also hard work, as the squad was put through their paces by head coach Christy Baker.

    The Washington County Commanders closed out the 2008-09 basketball season Wednesday with a 34-21 loss to eventual champion Bardstown in the first round of the 19th District Tournament.

    The Commanders started the first quarter with a different pace than fans are used to. They held the ball in an attempt to limit Bardstown’s possessions and slow down the Tiger offense. In fact, almost five minutes went by in the quarter before anyone scored.
