    By SCC Sports Information

    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 2012-13 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.

  • 11-12 Year Olds are State Runner...

    The Marion County 11-12 baseball all-stars finished the season as the 2012 Little League state runner-up.

    On Friday, Warren Southern used a pair of three-run home runs get the 8-5 over Marion County despite the local team's comeback effort.

    Thursday, Marion County defeated Russell-Flatwoods, 11-1, in the state semifinals to set up the championship game match-up.

  • Marion County all-stars ready...

    The Marion County 11-12 all-star team has reached the elimination play of the state baseball tournament.

    The local all-stars defeated Knox County on July 25 to wrap up pool play with a perfect 3-0 record.

    In the semifinals, Marion County is scheduled to play Russell-Flatwood at 8 p.m. at Stone Crest Field #1 in Prestonsburg. The winner will play in the state championship game, which is scheduled for Friday evening.

  • All-stars win two at state

    The 11- and 12-year-old Marion County Little League All-Star team made the trip to Prestonsburg to begin pool play in the 2012 state tournament Saturday. The team played pool play games Saturday night and Sunday night, and played the third pool play game last night. The locals were able to easily defeat Anderson County on Saturday, 10-0, and beat Fleming-Neon on Sunday, 6-2. These two wins guarantee the locals a semifinal game tonight, unless the locals lost last night by more than 15 runs to Knox County and Anderson County defeated Fleming-Neon by more than 15 runs.

  • Change of pace

    In the last column I wrote, I ended by saying that watching the All-Stars play several nights in district and state competition made me miss playing myself.  Well, last weekend, I was able to play two days of softball, satisfying my craving for a while at least.

  • President's Cup stays in...

    The Lebanon Country Club and Lincoln Homestead State Park golfers squared off to decide who would take home the 14th annual President's Cup this past weekend. Last year, the team from Lebanon took home the cup, and would need to merely split the points with the Springfield squad to retain the cup. Heading into the 2012 challenge, the Springfield team held a 7-6 overall advantage in total cup wins. On Saturday, the two teams played the best ball and scramble portions of the challenge in Springfield and finished up with the alternate shot and individual portions in Lebanon.

  • Parade for softball state champs

    Pockets of fans showed up Thursday evening to support the girls 9- and 10-year-old Marion County All-Star State Champions as they paraded through town on Main Street on top of a Lebanon Fire Department fire truck. The truck was followed by several cars filled with supporters and the convoy was led by a squad car from the Lebanon Police Department. The emergency vehicles flashed their lights and tooted their horns as they rolled through town.
