  • Former SCC player arrested in FBI probe

    Keeping up with the deluge of information from the recent federal investigation into corruption in college basketball has been a full-time job since the story first surfaced two weeks ago. Since then, the fallout has included the firing or forced resignations of head coaches, assistant coaches and athletics directors from schools such as Alabama, Auburn, Arizona, USC and perhaps most notably, Louisville. But while Rick Pitino and Louisville may carry the most local notoriety, another named in the investigation has direct ties with Washington County.

    When Sue Tyler and her husband Michael decided to take a trip out west this past September, they were both just excited to get a chance to travel and see the sights on their way to California.

    “I never dreamed of getting on the show,” she said.

    Quick thinking from a young man in Willisburg prevented what could have been a tragedy last Tuesday night.

    Doris Stone said she was watching television around 9:30 p.m. when a loud crash caused her dog to start barking. Stone’s 15-year-old grandson, Waylon Stone, was staying with her that evening and got up to investigate. He soon realized that a tree had fallen close the house and ignited.

    Doris Stone said she has problems hearing, and didn’t even realize the tree had fallen.

  • WC golfers wrap up season at 4th Region

    After a stellar season on the course, Washington County High School’s boys’ golf team wrapped up its season in the 4th Region tournament at Campbellsville Country Club Monday.
    The Commanders posted a record of 12-3 in matches this season, and head coach Bobby Bartholomai said despite not playing their best in regional play, the boys placed sixth out of 18 teams in Monday’s tournament. The team’s total score was 352.
    “I think everyone learned a lot and can take it to improve for next season,” Bartholomai said.

  • Volleyball drops two at home

    Tuesday night’s match against Thomas Nelson High School quickly got away from the Commanderettes as they ended up losing the match after five games. Despite winning the first two games, the Generals were anything but a pushover. Washington County took the first game 25-22 and was then able to grind out a 26-24 win in the second.

  • Commanders roll to 5-1

    The game looks easy when a team is playing well, and in Washington County’s 48-6 rout of Caverna last Friday night the Commanders’ performance looked almost effortless.
    “Part of it being easy is their play,” said head coach Eric Sagercy after the game. “It was great to have them come out excited to play and jump on [Caverna] from the first play and not let them breathe.”
