  • WC volleyball falls in district...

    The Washington County Commanderette volleyball team (21-10) was unable to overcome a Nelson County Cardinal squad (28-5) that had already beaten them in their two previous matchups.

    After leading 22-20, WC dropped the next five points to lose the first game 25-20.

    However, they were able to use that momentum to come back strong in the second set to tie up the match at one game apiece, winning 27-25.

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Lead by example

    Ever since he first started watching the game, Adan Garza was drawn to the physical nature of football.

    As a middle-school student, Garza saw his older brother playing and became intrigued by a sport that “just wasn’t like anything else.”

    “I thought it would be fun because it’s so different from every other sport,” Garza said. “Being able to hit other people, be physical, it just always looked like something I would love doing.”

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Utility Player

    Ever since Colton Nolan moved from Clay County to Washington County as a 7-year-old, he has felt at home. In fact, he says he has “loved every minute of it.”

    “There’s nothing bad about it,” Nolan said. “I wouldn’t change anything about it if I had to.”

    Nolan especially liked the family atmosphere he found while playing sports in WC.

    He has been interested in football ever since he first heard his father talk about his own experiences playing the game.

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: The Great...

    In all aspects of Madison Bonzo’s life, communication has been key.

    Growing up in a small community like Washington County, she loved the fact that she could consistently walk down the street and stop to chat with someone she knows.

    “You know everyone and everyone knows you, so you develop a lot of friendships,” Bonzo said. “I really like getting to know people and talking to people.”

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Serenity Now

    When Halie Browning moved from Bardstown to the ‘Burg in third grade, she noticed right away how calm Washington County was in comparison to where she was.

    “We lived in a pretty busy part of Bardstown, so when we moved out to the country, it was so peaceful and quiet,” Browning said. “I just liked that a lot right away.”

    Another part of small-town living she really enjoyed was how close-knit everyone was. In fact, Browning started out playing volleyball based on the recommendations of the friends she made in Washington County.

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Shake it off

    Whenever Katlyn Seger makes a bad pass or hits a ball out, she always makes it a point to move on to the next play because “five minutes from now, it’s not going to matter … you just have to focus on the next play.”

    It’s that ability to shrug off her mistakes that the Washington County Commanderette senior says is her biggest strength as a volleyball player.
