  • 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.

  • 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

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

  • 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.

  • African American Heritage Festival to take place Friday

    Former Kentucky Sen. Georgia Davis Powers, the Springfield native who became the first black and female senator in the commonwealth, will be honored during the 13th annual African American Heritage Festival. The festival is scheduled to begin Friday at 6 p.m. located at the corner of Cross Main Street near the 1816 Courthouse.

  • Coach-pitch Cardinals finish season 12-0

    The ball just continued bouncing the right way, again and again.

    Or at least that’s how it seemed to head coach Scotty Roution, as his coach-pitch Cardinals team continued winning on its way to a 12-0 season that included “several” come-from-behind victories.
