    Officially they will be called “new” as members of Lena Bramblett’s women’s basketball coaching staff at St. Catharine College.

    But the coaches now on board for the Patriots are by no means new to the Patriot program.

    Gone is Terreka Walker, who spent the last five years with Bramblett as her only full-time assistant.

    Joining the staff for the 2012-2013 season are Sara Sexton and Tyler Campbell (Lena’s brother).

    Both have strong ties to the college as a whole and also to Patriot basketball.

  • Bardstown native takes over St. Catherine cheer

    As a volunteer assistant for the last two years, Kesha Vittitow has become very familiar with the cheerleading program at St. Catharine College.

    And now that familiarity will become even greater as the Bardstown native takes over the program, replacing Patricia O’Bryan.

    “Patricia has done a great job for us the last few years,” said St. Catharine athletic director Mike Doig. “We are fortunate to have Kesha taking over who knows the girls and is passionate about the cheerleading program.”
