Today's Sports

  • A fast start

    The Washington County Commanderettes (2-0) started off their season by making history last week, defeating the Green County Dragons (2-5) for the first time ever in volleyball.

    The Dragons, who are the two-time defending champions in the 5th Region, have had the Commanderettes’ number since the teams’ first match in 2002.

    It seemed like history would repeat itself after the first set of WC’s opening match, which the Dragons won by a score of 26-24.

  • Commanders lose opening game 50-...

    Four turnovers. Three scores.

    That was the story for the Washington County Commanders (0-1), as they watched the Western Hills Wolverines (1-0) capitalize on three of WC’s four first-half mistakes with touchdowns.

    According to WC head coach Eric Sagrecy, these errors — and Western Hills’ scores as a result of them — prevented the Commanders from being able to settle into its offense.

  • WC golf drops matches in...

    The Washington County Commanders golf team took to the course last week but was unable to keep up its winning ways that gave them victories against Nelson County and Green County in their last two matches.

    On Thursday, Aug. 20, the Commanders headed to Campbellsville Country Club to tee off against Campbellsville and Taylor County in a three-way match.

  • WC golf team takes wins

    The Washington County High School golf team is teeing it up and already making big strides on the greens. And one player, Emily Cox, earned a ticket to the All “A” State tournament for her sixth time.

    On Aug. 1, Cox qualified for the state tournament by shooting an 81 and tying for fifth in the David “Big Daddy” Parsons Cardinal Classic hosted at Campbellsville Country Club.

  • Mudd takes over as head...

    The Washington County Commanderette volleyball team is under new guidance this year, but they’re being led by a very familiar face – former assistant coach, Casey Mudd.

    Mudd, 26, was an assistant coach under the leadership of her mother, former head coach Anne Mudd.

    Anne Mudd coached the team from 2011-2014 and before that coached at St. Dominic.
    “It’s for sure some big shoes to fill,” Mudd said. “Considering she [her mother] had really productive and good seasons all the years she was here.”

  • Hyman takes reins of SCC...

    Lauryn Hyman has quickly moved up in the coaching ranks at St. Catharine College. After just one season as the Patriot assistant volleyball coach, the Louisville native was named last week as the head coach for the 2015 season.

  • Belden is WCHS’s new athletic...

    Whether it’s acting as a first responder, water girl or someone who applies ice packs and tape, athletic trainers are often the unsung heroes of high school sports. Recently, Washington County High School lost its athletic trainer, Kelsey Marberger, but starting this month, the school will have a new trainer on its fields and courts. Her name is Kendra Belden.

    Belden, 24, spent her early years in Bardstown, but left the Bluegrass State and moved to Pueblo, Colo., at the age of 15.

  • Dzikas tabbed new women’s...

    Any young aspiring coach that comes up through the ranks dreams of being a head coach at some point during their career. This is no different for Megan Dzikas, as she was named the new head women’s basketball coach at St. Catharine College.

    Dzikas will take over for Lena Bramblett, who was head of the women’s basketball program for the last 15 years. Bramblett will make the move to the high school game and take over at Washington County High School.

  • WCHS golf team readies for season

    The Washington County High School golf squad is just a week away from teeing off, and they’re already getting into the swing of things.

    Head coach Bobby Bartholomai said the team’s goal, this year, as it is every year, is for players to practice and improve their game, which is something they can take with them for the rest of their lives.

    “If you want to improve in golf you have to practice outside of playing,” Bartholomai said. “And that’s what I hope to instill in them.”

  • It just runs in the family

    The family that runs together stays together.

    That’s one way to put it when you’re talking about Sheila and Tobe Yankey, along with their daughter, Claudette Herald.

    Recently, the three of them ran in The Great Buffalo Chase 5k in Frankfort. That’s where each placed second in their age division. In fact, the three of them have run as a group in a couple of 5ks during the last two months.  

    It should come as no surprise because running has been in the family’s blood for years.
