  • Another go-round with Bardstown

    The Bardstown Tigers are among a handful of contenders that looked poised to win the Fifth Region crown and punch their ticket to the state tournament.

    “We’re going to have to control the tempo,” Commanders head coach Russell Burkhead said. “They want to make it 94 feet, up and down the floor.”

After getting rained out on Friday, St. Catharine dropped a twin bill, 4-2 and 7-1, on Saturday. On Sunday they won the opener 5-4 but lost the second game 5-3.

  • Patriots baseball look to...

    The age old axiom in baseball is that a team must be strong up the middle to be successful. For Luther Bramblett’s St. Catharine College Patriots, that wisdom should translate into victories for the 2011 squad.
