  • KHSAA football realignment affects Washington County

    Last week, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association approved a tentative plan that would potentially lead to some minor changes to Washington County’s football schedule, beginning in 2015 and ending after the 2018 season.

  • Commander tennis nearing end of regular season

    The Washington County High School tennis team played in three matches last week.

    In their most recent contest last Friday, the Commanders took on the Thomas Nelson Generals and ended up splitting the six matches at three each.

    Chase Drury, who remains undefeated on the year, took his singles match by a score of 6-3, 6-3.

    WC’s other two victories came in doubles play, as the duos of Erika Weir/Gabby Sims (7-5, 6-1) and Trevor Devine/Zach Sneed (6-3, 6-3) accounted for the team’s other wins.

    Last week, Washington County senior Jennifer Keene officially signed with the University of Pikeville Bears womens’ basketball team.

    Her interest in Pikeville first began once the 2013-14 season ended for the Commanderettes.

    Keene sent an email to Pikeville head coach Joanna Bernabei-McNamee explaining that she was a 6-foot-2-inch power forward who is “looking to help and willing to work hard.”

  • Commanders earn first district win

    The Washington County Commanders pushed their regular-season record to 6-12 (1-2) with a win and three losses this past week.

    Taylor County
    WC senior Adam Smith smacked a two-run double in the bottom of the seventh to send the game into extra innings against the Taylor County Cardinals (18-1) this past Monday night, but it wasn’t enough for the Commanders to pull out the win.

    The Cardinals would find redemption with a two-run double of their own in the top of the eighth inning to seal the victory.

    The WC Commanderette softball team (6-12, 2-2) finished off this past week by winning consecutive games, only the second time all season they have won two contests in a row.
