  • COLUMN: Welcome to the Space Sham

    Let’s look past the obvious: aliens that can steal player’s basketball skills, Looney Tunes luring Michael Jordan into Looney Tune land and when Michael Jordan’s hand CLEARLY goes past the hoop on the final basket but we later see him hanging on the rim.

    Space Jam, one of my favorite childhood memories, is flawed for so many reasons that only an adult basketball mind can fathom, something I rediscovered this past week.

  • SCC sports see continued growth

    While the 2014-2015 collegiate sports season is still in its offseason, St. Catharine College has been hard at work to continue making strides in its athletics department.

    And the results have been noticeable.

    For starters, SCC has already seen several new facility enhancements with more still on the way.

  • SCC athletics stay busy with...

     

    Emmalee Fleener
    Before the 2014 volleyball season has even seen its first kill, the St. Catharine Patriots have received their first commitment for 2015.

    Emmalee Fleener, a 5-foot-7-inch defensive specialist/libero from Louisville, has committed to be a part of the St. Catharine College volleyball program.

    Fleener began club volleyball at age 8 as an outside hitter/defensive specialist.

  • Turning David into Goliath

    It all started because the cows went dry.

    Or that’s how Dudley Hilton tells the tale of how he got into coaching, at least.

    He was working at Armour Food, Co. in Springfield when he got laid off, enabling him to go to St. Catharine College to get a degree so he could coach and teach.

  • Springfield falls in 16th annual...

    Since the President’s Cup inception 16 years ago, the battle between Springfield’s Lincoln Homestead Country Club and Lebanon Country Club has been tight.

    A win by Lebanon this year helped prove just how close the series has been, evening the all-time record at 8-8.

    The Lebanon side came away with an 18-12 victory after the two-day event.

  • Stroop named to Patriots...

    Patriot mentor Luther Bramblett has named Stephanos Stroop as the new assistant coach. Stroop will be the Pats pitching coach and recruiting coordinator after working with pitchers and cathcers at George Washington University.

  • Springfield natives go to...

    In 1990, Bobby Bishop and Jonathan Coyle graduated from Washington County High School.

    From there, they both moved on to get bachelor’s degrees from the University of Kentucky and would move to Versailles, Ky., around the same time.

    They even had children around the same age, Coyle with twins, Alex and Ben, and Bishop with his son, Brandon.

    It was quite a journey for the pair who have been friends since they were old enough to talk.
