  • St Catharine returns strong...

    Marion County native Holly Smith, entering her ninth year as head coach of the St. Catharine Patriots softball team, welcomes back what is arguably her strongest group of returnees.
    The Patriots are looking to improve on last year’s 25-33 record that included an 8-16 Mid-South Conference slate. After enduring a stretch where they lost 17 of 19 games, the Patriots played their best ball late in the year when they won seven of their last 11 games that included a third place finish in the Mid-South Conference tournament.
