    Following an incredible run in 2013, the St. Catharine College Patriots volleyball team looks to build on their foundation of success in 2014.

    Last Tuesday, the Washington County High School golf team traveled to Danville to participate in the All-A Regional tournament.

    She carded an 88 on the day in order to qualify.

  • WC football ‘inexperienced but...

    Having 12 seniors on this year’s Washington County Commander football team is somewhat misleading.

    Most of them are what head coach Eric Sagrecy calls “young seniors,” as in they only recently started playing football.

    Swimming has been added to the Mid-South Conference’s championship lineup beginning in 2014-15, MSC Commissioner Eric Ward has announced.

    The award, which was first given in the 1992-93 academic year, honors collegiate and high school volleyball teams that displayed excellence in the classroom during the school year by maintaining at least a 3.30 cumulative team grade-point average on a 4.0, according to a press release from the AVCA.

    Led by senior Luke Mattingly and sophomore Jim Cecconi, who both scored 45 apiece, the WC boys’ team posted an overall team score of 187.

    When chef Charlie Shunnarah sent out a plea for help on Facebook, St. Catharine College men’s soccer head coach Tim Wolz had an idea: His team could help by asking fans to bring some canned goods to the games.

    Shunnarah is the executive chef and general manager of St. Vincent de Paul of Louisville and a former St. Xavier High School classmate of Wolz.

    Washington County volleyball head coach Anne Mudd and her Commanderettes will be taking this season one game at a time, something she stresses to her team at the start of each season.

    “We have our hopes, have our dreams., and the girls want to have a successful season, of course, but whatever the outcome of the present game, we just have to work to do better the next game,” Mudd said. “That’s how we’ll reach our goals as a team.”

    But that doesn’t mean the team doesn’t have confidence in its abilities.
