    The SCC Patriots (6-4, 1-0 MSC) traveled to east Tennessee and the Milligan College Mountain Madness last weekend for their final tune up before the full conference schedule begins.

    Head Coach Jason McDannold referred to the trip as “our last opportunity to prepare for conference quality teams without feeling the harsh penalty for taking chances with rotations.”

    On Friday, the Patriots displayed their conditioning level by playing the host Milligan Buffaloes (0-7) and the Emmanuel College Lions (3-2) to 5 sets, taking the win in both games.

    The St. Catharine men’s soccer team (0-1, 0-0 MSC) came into Saturday’s home opener with the hopes of gaining momentum to propel them into a tough conference schedule but had those hopes erased in the final minutes as the Oakland City Mighty Oaks (1-0) made their third goal past the diving finger tips of Patriot keeper CJ Powell.

    “I thought I had it,” Powell said. “I blocked the first shot and the ball rebounded right back to their feet.”

    This past Saturday, the WCHS Commanders boys’ golf team carded a 369 as a team in the 2013 All-A Classic Statewide Tournament.

    Senior Thomas Pettus led the Commanders with a score of 85, 15 strokes behind the tournament winner, St. Mary’s Seth Powell.

    Fellow senior J.P. Cecconi recorded a 91, the second-highest score for WCHS.

    Senior Amanda Cox expected to be in the top 20 golfers heading into the 2013 All-A Classic Statewide Tournament, and that’s exactly where she landed: number 20.

    “My real competition last year was with the seniors, and they graduated,” Cox said. “Because of that, I’m expecting to at least get up in the top 20 this year. That would be really nice.”

    J.P. Cecconi just loves to hit the ball.

    The senior WC golfer first picked up this passion for striking—and his first golf club—when he was only nine years old. It was then he went to a golf summer league, mostly to tag along with his two older siblings. After that experience, though, he “just kept on coming back.”

    Next up for the WCHS Commanders football team is a contest against the DeSales Colts, which will be both teams’ first district game of the season.

    The Colts have sprung out to a fast start, going 3-0 with wins against Holy Cross (Louisville), John Hardin and Warren Central.

    The Colts have a run-heavy offense that centers on senior running back Dylan Byrd.

    The WC Commanders football team put up a valiant effort but couldn’t pull out the win against the Elizabethtown Panthers (3-0) last Friday night, losing by a score of 33-7.

    The final score doesn’t accurately depict the game, however.

    The Commanders started the contest off slowly, with senior quarterback Morgan Churchill getting picked off by Panthers junior defensive back Thad Humphrey, an interception he returned for a 46-yard touchdown.

    The WC Commanderettes volleyball team (11-5) got overpowered by the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers (11-5) this past Monday night, losing in two sets by scores of 25-20 and 25-9.
    While the Command-erettes have typically been a slow-starting team this season, assistant coach Casey Mudd was pleasantly surprised when her team started rolling to a quick start.

  • Football looks to bounce back...

    Washington County looks to get back on track as they return home this week to take on Elizabethtown (2-0), who has started the year with a pair of lopsided victories.

    The Panthers opened the season two weeks ago with Washington County’s District 4 rival Fort Knox, beating the Eagles 34-10. Elizabethtown then hosted and beat Edmonson County, which was a 28-0 final.

  • Commanderettes earn runner-up...

    The Washington County volleyball team (10-3) looked to turn their hot start to 2013 into a 5th Region All-A championship on Saturday, but they were stopped in the title game by Green County, 2-0 (25-16, 25-17).

    The Commanderettes earned a first-round bye in the tournament, which was held at Washington County High School, before knocking off Campbellsville, 2-0 (25-9, 25-10) in the second round. The win earned them a spot in the finals against the Lady Dragons, but WC was unable to keep the run going.
