  • 9-10-year-old All-Stars wrap up...

     Since this year’s Washington County 9-10-year-old Little League Softball All-Stars started practicing three weeks ago, one of the players’ main areas of focus has been to continue giving their all until the end of the game, no matter the score, according to head coach Theresa Mattingly.

    And this past weekend in the District 5 Little League Tournament, Mattingly said her team did just that, despite losses to Russell and Marion counties.

  • 11-12-year-old All-Stars split...

     The Washington County 11-12-year-old Little League Softball All-Star team participated in the District 5 Little League Tournament this past weekend, splitting its first two games. After losing 7-0 to Russell County on Saturday, WC bounced back with an 18-5 blowout of Adair County on Sunday.

    WC was originally scheduled to play Marion County on Monday, but due to inclement weather, the game was postponed until Tuesday after press time.

  • SCC wrestling program...

    Bellarmine University recently announced plans to begin a collegiate wrestling program competing at the NCAA Division II level this fall by essentially absorbing the former Saint Catharine College Patriot wrestling team. 

  • Rogers prepping for first season...

     It was at Morehead State University where John Rogers cultivated his love of volleyball.

    While playing for the club team, he also helped MSU’s women’s team as a line judge, keeping the book and whatever the team needed.

    “That’s where I fell in love with volleyball,” Rogers said.

  • District play changing format in...

    A new wrinkle has been added to next year’s Washington County Commander baseball schedule, and it’s one that WC head coach Adam Blair feels will help his team — and the entire 19th District, for that matter — once it comes time for the postseason.

    In what will resemble a college baseball team’s schedule, 19th District squads will now play a three-game series against each of their four district opponents, with the games taking place on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday of the same week.

  • Midway hires three SCC coaches

    At least three St. Catharine College sports programs will live on past the school’s July 31 close date, although they will be doing so in Midway Eagles uniforms.

    Last week, Midway announced that it had signed three current SCC coaches: Joe Krupinski, men’s basketball; Tim Wolz, men’s soccer; and Luther Bramblett, baseball.

    “We are pleased to bring these coaches and their team members into our Eagles athletics family,” said Rusty Kennedy, Midway’s athletics director.

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Dayanna Railey

    Keep it light-hearted and upbeat.

    Every time Dayanna Railey steps onto a softball field, she has a natural ability to keep herself and her teammates positive by doing these two things.

    “I just laugh everything off every time I make a mistake,” Railey said. “I have to be positive because if I don’t, I feel like I’m just letting the team down and the team is going to collapse with me. I think you’ve got to stay positive in order to succeed.

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Vanessa Mejia

     “She’s just a true spitfire.”

    Washington County Commanderette softball coach Christy Baker couldn’t think of any other way to describe one of her most outspoken leaders, Vanessa Mejia.

    ”She’s high energy, fun to be around,” Baker added. “She’s very vocal in the dugout and kind of helps lead the team there, which kind of sets the tone for how we play.”

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Mary Beth...

    When Mary Beth Begley first began playing tee-ball, she couldn’t contain how excited she was.

    She loved every aspect of the game from the very get-go, and from then on, she took full advantage of every chance she had to play softball.

    “I never stopped wanting to play,” Begley said. “I loved it that much. I just liked being part of a team, and I really just love baseball in general, so being able to play softball is one of my favorite things.”
