The past week has been a productive one for the Washington County Commanderette volleyball team. After defeating Campbellsville 2-0 on the road last Thursday, the girls headed to Centre College for tournament action, which saw them go 3-3 overall. The 4-3 week brings the ladies to 5-4 early in the season.

“In the four years I’ve been coaching, this is the most competitive and evenly matched that I’ve seen this tournament,” said WC head coach Brett Hudson.

On Friday, WC got a 2-1 win over West Jessamine, but fell 0-2 to Mercer County. The next day, the Commanderettes lost to Southwestern but took Casey County 2-0.

In a rematch against Mercer, WC came away with a 2-0 win, but dropped their match against Boyle County 0-2.

“I was pleased with our play over the weekend,” Hudson added. “We seemed to lose focus at some points, but played some solid volleyball for this early in the season.”

Clare Smith was named to the all-tournament team for Washington County.

Starting middle hitter Sarah Colvin has been out with a jammed thumb on her hitting hand. Olivia Taylor has been filling in and had done an exceptional job, according to Hudson.

WC is back on the hardwood Thursday night at home when they host Marion County with freshmen, JV and varsity matches scheduled for 5:30, 6 and 7 p.m. respectively.
