  • From Stun to Kill

    To secure their second straight trip to the All “A” State Classic, the Washington County Commanderettes (5-2, 1-1) would have to first come back from the brink of elimination.

    The Commanderettes won last year’s 12th Region All “A” Classic in four straight sets, but WC found itself tested early on this year, falling behind two sets to none in its opening-round game against the Somerset Briar Jumpers (4-3).

    “They didn’t start off as strong as we would have liked,” WC head coach Casey Mudd said.

  • WC falls to Campbellsville

    The Washington County Commanders (0-2) were bitten again by the turnover bug, and for the second week in a row, it cost them a chance at keeping up with their opponent.

    Going into the game against the Campbellsville Eagles (2-0), widely considered a top-5 Class A team in the state, WC head coach Eric Sagrecy knew his team would be facing a difficult task, but overcoming five turnovers proved to be an impossible one.

    And the trouble started early for the Commanders, who fumbled 44 seconds into the game, on only their second play from scrimmage.

  • 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.

  • GSP meets Begley's high...

    When Mary Beth Begley’s cousin, Will, returned from his Governor’s Scholars Program experience in 2012, she was intrigued every time she listened to him talking about his experiences.

    She knew it was something that she wanted to try and do when it came her time to apply as a high school junior.

    Even though she said she had always been studious in school, she took it even more seriously and also began to explore outside opportunities to strengthen her résumé.

    And she wanted to get to work on it right away.
