  • Library seeks new trustee

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Home Sweet Home

    Michael Moreland may have just moved to Washington County around 10 years ago, but it is the place that he considers home.

    When Moreland, who is originally from eastern Kentucky and moved to WC from eastern Maryland, first came to Springfield, there were a few things that stood out right away.

    For one, it was clear that it was a “real close-knit town,” something he values about WC.
    What really separates Springfield from the other places he has lived, though, is what all he has experienced in the community.

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: A Natural Leader

    Both on and off the football field, Nick Hagan is a leader.

    Playing for Washington County this past season, he readily accepted the leadership role that was thrust upon him because of his status as a senior. In fact, he embraced it.

    “Just seeing the younger guys behind me, you’ve got to show the younger kids what to do and what the coaches expect from you as a player,” Hagan said. “You’ve got to let them know that they have to bring their ‘A’ game every day they come to practice.”

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: The Total Package

    Offense, defense and special teams.

    In all three phases of football, Jordan Bottoms played an integral part during his career playing for the Washington County Commanders.

    On offense, Bottoms played fullback in a run-first offense. It was from this spot that he scored the first touchdown of his varsity career against Thomas Nelson earlier this year.

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Tough Enough

    “Jimmy Wheatley is one of the toughest kids I’ve ever coached.”

    When Washington County Commanders head football coach Eric Sagrecy says this about one of his senior captains, it is not just idle praise; he means every word of it.

    “I’ve only coached a few players in the past like him,” Sagrecy said. “He has an extreme amount of heart, and he’s going to give you 110 percent all the time. You just always know what Jimmy Wheatley is going to bring, and that’s everything he’s got.”

  • SCC wrestling begins journey as new program

    The St. Catharine College Patriots wrestling squad traveled to Ohio this past weekend for its first-ever tournament as a program.

    The “Grappling Patriots” competed in the inaugural Case Western Reserve University Wrestling Festival, held on CWRU’s campus. The showcase consisted of two separate events — The Bob Del Rosa Duals and the Claude Sharer Classic.

  • Weather update: School board meeting location change

    With snowfall last night and this morning causing school districts around the area to close on Monday, the regularly scheduled Washington County School Board meeting will be held with a change in venue.

    The meeting was originally scheduled to be held at 7 p.m. at Washington County High School, starting with a share fair presentation from students.

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Hustle Points

    When Edwin Mendoza gets knocked down, he gets right back up again.

    He learned this type of mentality growing up in Washington County, a community he said was “an awesome place to be.”

    “It’s really nice to have been able to grow up here,” Mendoza said. “I’ve learned a lot of things here, and I’ve enjoyed it because it’s always peaceful and everybody knows everybody.”
