  • SCC SPORTS: Patriot women snag first-ever berth in nationals

    By losing three of their last four games, some might claim that the St. Catharine College women’s basketball team “backed-in” to the NAIA National Tournament. But for those close to the Patriots’ program, nothing could be further from the truth.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: SCC bowlers win MSC title

    When St. Catharine College decided five years ago to join the prestigious Mid-South Conference, visions of hoisting a championship trophy in baseball, soccer, softball basketball, volleyball, etc, danced in the minds of college officials. At that time the Patriots had no bowling teams.

    But bowling was added to the athletic program four years ago. And now, the first Mid-South Conference championship at St. Catharine belongs to the Patriots’ women’s bowling team.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: Hickman wraps up career at Indiana Tech

    FORT WAYNE, IND. — Indiana Tech senior Jordan Hickman helped lead the Warriors to a 21-10 final record and a fourth place finish in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference.

    Hickman, who transferred from two-year Vincennes University, played in 31 games this season, averaged 10.47 points per game. He was also a Honorable Mention for All-Conference. He scored a season-high 20 points in the Warriors win over Marygrove University on Feb. 6.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: SC men on 6-game streak; women win 2

    The St. Catharine College Patriots continued their late season momentum with two men’s home victories, topping UVA-Wise 71-63 Thursday and the nation’s No. 7 team with a 93-90 win against Pikeville on Saturday.

    The two Mid-South Conference victories extended the Patriots’ winning streak to six games as they improved to 12-10 overall and 8-8 in conference play. That puts J.T. Burton’s team in a tie for sixth place in the MSC with the University of the Cumberlands, two games behind fifth-place Campbellsville.

  • COLLEGE SPORTS: SC men red-hot; Patriot women split a pair

    The St. Catharine College men had only won back-to-back games once this year before traveling to Rio Grande two weeks ago. That trip resulted in a win that started the Patriots’ current four-game Mid-South Conference winning streak, two of those victories coming against nationally ranked opponents.

  • SCC men’s soccer kicks in for charity

    What would someone do with four and one-half tons of old shoes? That is exactly what the St. Catharine College men’s soccer team collected over a period of eight months that ended in the early summer.

    Of course, Tim Wolz’s team knew exactly what to do with these shoes as they started the collection project. And it wasn’t to cover the feet of those who may not have shoes but instead to bring something much more valuable to some less fortunate people — clean drinking water.

  • GOLF: Eagles' Ballard signs with SCC

    Bethlehem High School senior Cole Ballard recently signed a scholarship to continue his golf career at St. Catharine College. Ballard signed the offer with Patriot head coach Joan Rizer, who was joined by Bethlehem coach Christi Medley and Cole’s parents, Jeff and Shawn Ballard.

    “Cole is a good student and good golfer. We are always glad to have local players join our program,” said Rizer.
