  • Commanderettes fall to Lexington Christian

     The Washington County Commanderettes softball team watched its game against Lexington Christian slip away early and couldn’t recover in an 8-3 loss to the visiting Eagles Thursday. The loss puts the Commanderettes at 5-9 for the season.

    Washington County was held scoreless until the fifth inning and mustered only four hits and three runs.

    “The game got away from us early and we couldn’t recover,” said head coach Christy Baker.

  • Elmore to leave WCHS

    Washington County High School Principal Thad Elmore will be leaving WCHS and moving to Marion County High School.

    Two courses at Washington County High School are taking kids out of the classroom and letting them get their hands dirty – literally. 

    The greenhouse and plant land science courses at WCHS are not only teaching students the fundamentals of growing tomatoes, bedding and hanging plants, but also the fundamentals of economics.  

    According to the courses’ teacher, Bart Mattingly, students must be sophomores or above in order to join the program, but most of the 28 students involved are juniors or seniors.
