  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Fever (on the) pitch

    World Cup fever has struck the United States yet again.

    It happens every four years, though. American fans get behind our men’s national team, something amazing happens that captures the imagination of the fans, everyone wonders if soccer is finally catching on in the United States, then all falls quiet for the next four years.

    I’ve heard numerous writers and television analysts asking the wrong question, “Is soccer finally catching on with the American public and will they begin to support Major League Soccer?”

  • SCC wrestling holds first team...

    Wrestling is often thought of as an individual sport with a few team aspects interspersed within it. However, the St. Catharine Patriots made a leap toward making their new program a total team concept with a team-bonding event at Mammoth Cave National Park recently.

    The team hit the road on Friday, with 26 of its 43 signees to lodge at the Jellystone Camping Resort in order to prep for two days of team events.

  • Rally bats fall shy of final

    Josh Cain stepped into the batter’s box in the fifth inning of a game against Marion County last week with a trip to the 11-12-year-old Little League District 5 final at stake and gave his team a jolt.

    Trailing 11-2 after two big innings by the road team, Cain smacked a grand slam to breathe life into Washington County’s tournament hopes. The blast was followed by another run in the sixth and final inning, and WC was able to load the bases, but the rally fell short in an 11-7 win for Marion County.
