  • 3-Peat

    Three years. Three championships.

    Ever since a realignment placed Washington County in the 12th Region of the All “A” Classic in 2014, the Commanderette volleyball team has dominated, winning the title each season in its new region. 

    WC continued that streak on Saturday at Somerset High School, defeating Somerset and Danville on its way to a third consecutive championship.

  • Commander golf team falls to Campbellsville

    The Washington County Commander golf team was in action last week, traveling to Taylor County to face off against the Campbellsville Eagles this past Thursday.

    The Commanders were unable to extend their two-match winning streak, though, falling to the Eagles by 21 strokes, with WC scoring 190 compared to Campbellsville’s 169.

  • WC volleyball starts season 0-3

    The Washington County Commanderettes lost their first three games of the season last week, but they did so while playing three of the top teams in the 5th Region.

    And that was by design, according to head coach John Rogers.

    “We wanted to load that schedule up, and with the way the girls are fighting, they understand what the game plan is,” he said. “0-3 has no negative effect on us whatsoever as far as the district tournament and the region tournament go, unless we let it.”

  • Commanders lose opening game

    The Washington County Commanders found themselves in a shootout last Friday night, but they were unable to come out with a win, falling short 54-40 against the high-powered offense of the Western Hills Wolverines during the season opener.

    Despite a two-possession deficit on the board at the end of the game, it looked as if Western Hills would run away in a blowout early on.

  • Baker returns from stint with national youth all-star team

    Beau Baker was “very excited” when he was chosen to compete in last week’s Baseball Youth All-Star Challenge in Branson, Missouri, but even that feeling was nothing compared to how he felt after winning the 10-year-old Home Run Derby and being a contributor on a team that would go on to win the event’s championship.

    “It was a good experience,” Beau said. “Not a bunch of kids get to do this. … You’ve gotta take advantage of it.”

  • Commanders look to use experience as advantage

    One thing this year’s Washington County Commander football team will not be lacking is experience. With 14 seniors — including many who have played multiple years on the varsity squad — the Commanders will continue to look to their veterans for leadership, according to head coach Eric Sagrecy.

  • Yates qualifies for All ‘A’ State

    After posting the lowest overall score at the 12th Region All “A” Classic last week, Drew Yates is headed to the state tournament.

    The Washington County High School sophomore boys’ golfer will be the first male competitor to compete at the All “A” state level since WC’s boys’ team qualified as a whole in 2011.

  • Part of Beechwood Drive to be adopted by county

    Residents of the Beechwood subdivision off of KY 555 will be glad to hear that an approximate 800-foot stretch of Beechwood Drive will be adopted by the county. 

    Washington County Fiscal Court voted to begin the ordinance process so that the county can provide maintenance to the road. 

    This comes after a request from members of the subdivision last year. In September 2015, the fiscal court denied the residents’ request for adoption after it was determined the road did not meet county specifications.

  • Five seniors lead the way for WC volleyball

    With no seniors on last year’s Washington County High School volleyball team, this year’s squad will see the return of many familiar faces.

    For new head coach John Rogers, who was promoted earlier this year from his assistant coach position, returning a team full of varsity-tested players should prove beneficial in the team’s quest for its second-ever district tournament title.

  • WC alums excelling in college football

    The speed of the game.

    That’s what first stuck out to Ty’Lyn Byas, Sean Lewis and Adam Smith as the biggest different between high school football and college football.

    But after the initial adjustment period, it’s something that all three former Commanders have adjusted to on their way to making an impact on their respective college teams.
