  • 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.

    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.

    Lena Bramblett admitted to being a “little worried” at halftime of the Patriots’ season opener Friday at Martin Methodist. But the worry turned to joy as the St. Catharine women turned a 29-29 halftime deadlock into a 72-53 win.

    “Our point guards were in foul trouble early and we had an awkward lineup in much of the first half,” Bramblett said. “But we settled in and made some shots in the second half and our conditioning proved to be phenomenal.”
