  • WCMS sweeps St. D

    In eighth-grade action for the Washington County Middle School boys, Jailen Statemen and Cameron Willis led the way with 41 of the team’s 47 points.

    Statemen dominated the interior defense of St. Dominic, pouring in 24 points along with 13 rebounds.

    Willis, who was fighting the flu all week, scored eight of his 17 points in the fourth quarter as the Generals pulled away to a 47-38 victory.

    Head Coach Barrett Tingle’s eighth-grade team is now 17-1 on the season.

  • SCC mens split G'town,...

    Georgetown College

    The No. 23-ranked St. Catharine Patriots (10-5, 4-2 MSC) reestablished themselves in the top three of the Mid-South Conference on Saturday as they knocked off No. 13 Georgetown College (12-4, 3-2 MSC) 103-90 in Lourdes Hall.

    After dropping a heartbreaker to the University of the Cumberlands on Thursday, SCC was ready to get back on the winning track against rival Georgetown.

  • WC boys drop two, now 2-10

    Marion County

    Even before the game, Head Coach Russell Burkhead knew his team was ready. He could see by the intensity in their eyes that they were fully prepared to play the border-rival Marion County Knights.

    “It was the first game all year that I could see in their eyes before the game that they were ready,” Burkhead said. “If you can’t get pumped up to play [Marion County], you can’t get pumped up to play anybody.”

  • Commanderettes end six-game skid

    Marion County

    The Washington County Commanderettes (2-7, 1-4) went up against the defending state champion in the Marion County Lady Knights (7-7) this past Saturday night, and it showed.

    The Knights jumped out to a 15-4 lead to start the game and never looked back. The Commanderettes cut their deficit to 12 by halftime, but the damage had already been done.
    Marion would go on to win by a score of 52-39.

  • SCC women fall to 3-7 on season

    Lindsey Wilson College
    The SCC Lady Patriots (3-7, 1-3 MSC) concluded an uphill weekend Saturday, falling 90-73 at the hands of conference foe Lindsey Wilson College (12-4, 2-2 MSC).

    SCC kept things close in the opening frame of the contest with the outstanding guard play of Machera Calhoun (Fort Myers, Fla.).

    In the waning minutes of the first, the Patriots tore off a 15-6 run, sparked by a layup from Brooke Gee (Ashland) on a spectacular assist by Calhoun (one of six on the night).

  • SCC men now second in MSC

    Lindsey Wilson College
    A leap to second place in the conference standings was the result of the St. Catharine Patriots’ (9-4, 3-1 MSC) 77-56 win over Lindsey Wilson (10-4, 1-3 MSC) on Saturday.

    After a slow start on offense, Will Bailey (Valley, Ala.) drilled a shot from behind the arc to put the Patriots up nine with just six minutes to go in the first half.

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Mama's...

    CJ (Courtney) Jones has a specific role for the WC Commanderettes, just like everyone else on the team. But unlike the others, Jones’ role has just as much to do with her off-the-court actions as what she does on the court.

    As Head Coach Bernard Smalley describes it, she’s the team’s “Mama.”

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: A Defensive...

    When Amber Grigsby’s father walked into the house that afternoon, she had no idea that her life was about to change dramatically—and for the better.

    She didn’t know that, when he told her that she was going to practice, her confusion would soon turn into elation.

    But it was on that day that the third-grader discovered basketball, and it was also on that day that she realized that she was a natural at it.

    Even though it took some convincing at first.

  • Boys pick up win in holiday...

    Taylor County
    In their third game in three days, the Washington County Commanders (2-8, 0-4) were unable to best the Taylor County Cardinals (9-3) in the second matchup of the year between the two squads.

    With the Commanders only trailing by nine going into the locker room, the Cardinals ramped up their defensive pressure in the second half and would go on to win by a score of 63-37 in the fifth-place contest of the Campbellsville Holiday Classic (an eight-team tournament).

  • SCC adds wrestling

    St. Catharine College Athletic Director Tom Bystrek has announced that wrestling will be added as a new sport in the fall of 2014.

    The addition will be the 20th varsity sport for the Patriots and the 10th men’s varsity sport at the college.

    “We are excited about the possibilities,” said Bystrek. “Not only will the competition be exciting, but the college will add an additional 30 plus athletes to our athletic and campus family.”
