    In the list of teams alphabetically in the West Division of the Mid-South Conference, St. Catharine College falls last among the five members. Unfortunately last season, in Adam Stevenson’s first year, the Patriots were still in that position at the end of the regular season.

    Abdikadir “Nini” Mohamed speaks with a noticeable accent, sometimes pausing to choose just the right word or phrase.  But the fact that he has grasped the English language as well as he has is somewhat remarkable.

  • Positions take shape

    Most positions are solidified now, but some remain up in the air as Friday night lights are just 48 hours away.

    The Commanders took one last test run last Friday against North Oldham in the city of Goshen.
    Football head coach Eric Sagrecy said he thought his squad played hard, but made several mistakes.

  • Volleyball team falls to...

    It took a last-minute surge for Bethlehem to avoid a decisive third set, but the Banshees came from behind against the Commanderettes for the win on Monday during the Fifth Region All ‘A’ tournament.

    Washington County (0-3) lead by as much as four late, up 22-18 in the second set. Bethlehem (3-0) would rally to tie the set at 24.
    Riding momentum, they shut the door on Washington County to win the set and the match, 26-24.
    The Banshees claimed the first set after pulling ahead. They won 25-14.

  • Commanders and Eagles set for...

    Revenge will be on the minds of the Bethlehem players and coaches on Friday.

    The Eagles were on the wrong end of a 30-0 loss last season at Bennett R. Lewis Field, as the Commanders rolled to a sixth straight victory.
    Commander head coach Eric Sagrecy said the Eagles will be better this year.
    “I think that Bethlehem has improved,” Sagrecy said. “Coach (Ron) Koontz does a really good job over there and he’s a good person, good coach. His kids are highly motivated.”

  • On to state: Boys’ golf team...

    It took a sudden-death playoff, but the Washington County High School boys’ golf team prevailed against Bethlehem in the region All ‘A’ tournament at Green County Country Club on Saturday.

    The Eagles and the Commanders were tied at 363 strokes after 18 holes. The Commanders shot even par on the first playoff hole for the victory.
    Individual results from the tournament and match play were not released by the coach.

  • Commander alumni game

    Washington County High School football alumni got another chance to play on Bennett R. Lewis Field on Friday as part of the Blue / Gold intra-squad scrimmage.

    Players from classes past  ignored age, fitness and logic to chase the pigskin.  
    After the ice packs were put away, the crowd was the real winner. Nothing was broken, but many were likely bruised.
    All survived, leaving enough able-bodies to fill two teams for next season.

  • Early SCC soccer games to be...

    On the schedule they are listed as home games, but for now, the St. Catharine College soccer schedule, for both men and women, won’t actually be played at “home.”

    Instead those games will be played at Nelson County High School and/or Bardstown High School.
    The move is due to the construction on campus that will result in a refurbished Barber Soccer Field, with a nine lane track encircling it.
    Adjacent to the soccer/track facility will be six new tennis courts.
