  • SCC baseball recruiting heavy on...


    St. Catharine College head baseball coach Luther Bramblett knows how tough the competition is in the Mid-South Conference.

    The Bat Pats mentor also knows that upperclassmen are obviously more ready to handle those pressure weekends of conference play.
    With that in mind, Bramblett, in his 11th season at St. Catharine has put an emphasis on quality transfer players to restock his roster for the 2012 season.

  • SCC’s Milam makes music on and...


    No one on the women’s basketball team at St. Catharine College was even around when Joe Dean made college basketball his domain 30 years ago, but they put their own twist on the man who called Southeastern Conference games for more than 20 years.

    Courtney Milam found out first-hand last year.

  • Haydon Oil wins golf scramble


    Team Haydon Oil took top honors at last weekend’s third annual African American Heritage golf scramble.

  • Mudd optimistic about her first...


    New Washington County High School volleyball coach Anne Mudd is optimistic about the upcoming season.

    “The way we play, very aggressive play, we’re not having any Tinker Bells,” Mudd said.
    Part of the reason for optimism? Change.
    “The girls are stepping up, we changed a lot of things,” she said. “We’re doing a lot of things different this year. They have good attitudes.”
    The team will field three seniors - Shelby Spalding, Emily White and Olivia Smith.

  • Golf team brings experience to...


    Washington County High School boys’ golf coach Bobby Bartholomai will have experience to draw from this season on the course.

    Bartholomai, a former Kentucky PGA champion, has a year of coaching experience on his resume. He also has four seniors on the varsity squad.
    Seniors Chase Spalding,  Blake Smith, Steven Cecconi, Peyton Cecconi,  and sophomores Thomas Pettus and J.P. Cecconi make up the varsity squad.

  • It’s still early, but...


    I know it’s still early, I know it. I just can’t help myself.

    I caught a glimpse of the football team during a seven-on-seven scrimmage at Boyle County last week.
    I wasn’t sure what to expect. They were playing back-to-back state champion Boyle County. They are 30-0 in the last two seasons (43-1 in the last three).
    Not a team to scoff at during any season, but especially under Larry French.
    When I pulled up, a WC player hauled in a touchdown pass.
    A few minutes later, somebody broke up a pass on defense.
