  • Commanders back to winning ways

     

    Coming off of a loss to Western Hills, the Commanders had a statement to make when they took on Shawnee away from home last week. They wasted no time, scoring early and often as they rolled over Shawnee on their way to a 49-6 win that puts them at 6-2 for the season.

  • Volleyball teams changes system
  • Former SCC player arrested in...

    Keeping up with the deluge of information from the recent federal investigation into corruption in college basketball has been a full-time job since the story first surfaced two weeks ago. Since then, the fallout has included the firing or forced resignations of head coaches, assistant coaches and athletics directors from schools such as Alabama, Auburn, Arizona, USC and perhaps most notably, Louisville. But while Rick Pitino and Louisville may carry the most local notoriety, another named in the investigation has direct ties with Washington County.

  • Cisternas grows into importnat...

    On the wall of the football team’s weight room at Washington County High School is a quote from the late Green Bay Packers head coach Vince Lombardi: “The only time success comes before work is in the dictionary.”
    For the Commanders, the hard work put in by junior guard/defensive tackle Juan Cisternas has taken him from football neophyte to team captain.

  • Commanders roll to 5-1

    The game looks easy when a team is playing well, and in Washington County’s 48-6 rout of Caverna last Friday night the Commanders’ performance looked almost effortless.
    “Part of it being easy is their play,” said head coach Eric Sagercy after the game. “It was great to have them come out excited to play and jump on [Caverna] from the first play and not let them breathe.”

  • WC golfers wrap up season at 4th...

    After a stellar season on the course, Washington County High School’s boys’ golf team wrapped up its season in the 4th Region tournament at Campbellsville Country Club Monday.
    The Commanders posted a record of 12-3 in matches this season, and head coach Bobby Bartholomai said despite not playing their best in regional play, the boys placed sixth out of 18 teams in Monday’s tournament. The team’s total score was 352.
    “I think everyone learned a lot and can take it to improve for next season,” Bartholomai said.

  • Volleyball drops two at home

    Tuesday night’s match against Thomas Nelson High School quickly got away from the Commanderettes as they ended up losing the match after five games. Despite winning the first two games, the Generals were anything but a pushover. Washington County took the first game 25-22 and was then able to grind out a 26-24 win in the second.

  • WC wins ‘Border War’

    There’s no such thing as an easy win, but the Washington County Commanders ended the game with a running clock and very little trouble against rival Marion County in this year’s installment of the annual “Border War.” 

    The Commanders outgunned the Knights 42-6 at Bennett R. Lewis Field in Springfield Friday night.

    Head coach Eric Sagrecy said he was happy with his team’s efforts. 

    “We played really well,” he said. 

    Sagrecy gave a shout out to a number of his players.

  • Commanderettes play in All-A...

    After claiming their fourth consecutive All-A Classic 12th Region championship last month, the Washington County Commanderette volleyball team spent this past weekend in the All-A Classic state tournament in Florence, Kentucky.

    The tournament opened with pool play, featuring four pools made up of four teams in each. Washington County head coach John Rogers knew his team had anything but an easy draw, and before the tournament was over, three teams from Washington County’s bracket would be playing in the finals of their brackets.

  • Golfers win fourth straight

     

    Satterly, Taylor and Yates might sound like a law firm, but it’s actually just the names of Washington County’s top three golfers, Grant Satterly, Landon Taylor and Drew Yates.

    Each has shined for the Commanders this season, and each led the team to a win over a three-day span this past week.

    Tuesday afternoon brought Bethlehem and Thomas Nelson high schools to Lincoln Homestead State Park. The Commanders won the match 166-188 over Bethlehem, while Thomas Nelson only fielded two golfers and did not post a team score.
