The Commanders also fell to the Bethlehem Eagles (15-6) 5-4 on Wednesday.

  • WC girls pick up two wins

    The Washington County Commanderettes won two of three games last week, edging out the Campbellsville Lady Eagles 6-5 in a nail-biting eight innings, and the Lexington Christian Lady Eagles 10-9, also in eight innings.

    The two wins were a boost from the only loss last week, a 9-3 defeat at the hands of the Bethlehem Banshees (14-4).

    In their fight against Campbellsville (11-8), the Commanderettes trailed 5-1 in the sixth inning when sophomore Madison White rallied the team with a two-run homer. Another timely run in the seventh would tie the game at 5-5.
