    Coming on the heels of their region tournament win, Washington County bass fishing team members Michael Shelton and Trevor Sagrecy accomplished something else they had been aspiring to: getting a college bass fishing scholarship.

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Evan Mattingly

    Evan Mattingly was 3 years old when he joined his first T-ball team. His father, Jim, was “a big baseball fan,” and with Evan’s older brother, Luke, set to play on their father’s team, Evan naturally wanted to join.

    And from that point on, Evan was hooked on baseball.

    “My dad got me into it, and I’ve loved it ever since,” he said.

  • Commanders finish 3-2 in Florida

    After picking up two wins in  its first two days at the Fort Walton Beach Bash, the Washington County Commander baseball team was unable to keep its momentum, dropping two of its final three games in the Florida tournament.

  • Smith signs with Campbellsville

    Just one year after Brandon Smith joined the Washington County High School Commander football team, he signed his letter of intent last week to join a new team: the Campbellsville University Tigers.

    Even though he just has one season of high school football under his belt, Smith, who will be playing defensive end at Campbellsville, believes that his short time as a Commander will serve him well in transitioning to play at the collegiate level.
