    It's been a long, cold winter, and chances are pretty good that area golfers are looking for an excuse to hit the links. Now is the time to dust of your clubs and tee off for a great cause at the same time.

    The Washington County Relay for Life Golf Scramble will take place at Lincoln Homestead State Park on May 9. Registration begins at 8 a.m. and the shotgun start gets underway at 9 a.m. with prizes awarded for first and second place.

    When St. Catharine College Athletic Director Mike Doig realized that Patriot teams would not be eligible for post-season play in their first year in the Mid-South Conference, he hurriedly moved to get the programs in line for other playoff possibilities. He did so by entering St. Catharine in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA), an organization of about 70 small colleges and universities across the country.

    One thing is certain. If St. Catharine College softball coach Holly Smith doesn’t set a new personal record for single-season victories this year, it is going to be a sad month of April. That is because with about 24 games to play, the Patriots have already equaled the 18-victory mark set last year when Smith enjoyed her best season.

    April's fool

    This past Sunday, if you heard a loud thud and felt a little shake in the earth around 4:30 p.m., then I owe you an explanation. It was only the sound of my men’s college basketball brackets crashing to the ground. It’s only fitting that my picks for the madness in March would make me into April’s fool.

    “Ok, we’re going to start with a 20-mile run with full packs!”, exclaimed Washington County High School tennis coach Steve Schubart. Of course Schubart was kidding with his players, but he knows that conditioning and building endurance will be important.
