    A new era in the history of St. Catharine College began Tuesday when Patriot athletic teams played their first contests at home at the four-year level. In the school’s 77 years, teams have always competed on the junior college level, but last fall the school decided to make the move to four-year athletics with an affiliation in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). With that move, they became a member of the Mid-South Conference.


    The Washington County Commanders won their season opener defeating Lincoln County 35-30 in the 2008 Death Valley Bowl in Stanford, Ky.  For game highlights and photos, check out the next issue of The Springfield Sun this Wednesday.
