  • 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.

  • Dawson sets school record with...

     

    After a tough loss last week, Washington County head coach Eric Sagrecy said this week’s game against Thomas Nelson was a bounce-back game for his team.

    And bounce back they did.

    The Commanders topped the Generals 55-37 in a game that wasn’t nearly as close as the final score.

  • 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.

  • WC falls in home opener

     

    The Washington County Commanders were supposed to be taking on Kentucky Country Day Friday night for their home opener at Bennett R. Lewis Field, but instead, both teams found themselves up against Mother Nature.

    With extremely heavy rains predicted from the remnants of Hurricane Harvey, which had pounded Texas earlier in the week, last Friday night’s game was moved to an early Thursday evening kickoff.

    If you’ve ever thought there wasn’t anything to do in Washington County, you may not be alone. Now, however, there’s a new activity available for people of all ages and abilities.

    Disc golf is an outdoor activity that is gaining popularity around the nation, and Bobby Bartholomai is well aware of that fact.

    Bartholomai is the PGA golf pro and park manager at Lincoln Homestead State Park, and he has recently created a disc golf course on the park’s property.

    After knocking off Campbellsville High School Saturday night in the Forcht Bank Bowl, Washington County head coach Eric Sagrecy told his team that 1-0 is a great way to start a season.

    The Commanders hadn’t opened with a win since 2013 when they topped LaRue County 20-7, and they had only done so twice under Sagrecy since his tenure began in 2011, also opening with a win that year.

    The Washington County High School boys’ golf team is having some early success on the course. The team won its match last week against Nelson County and Bardstown high schools. The match was scheduled to be plays at Maywood Country Club in Bardstown, but was moved to Lincoln Homestead State Park in Springfield.

    The five-man varsity Commander group posted a low score of 171, followed by Bardstown with a 183 and Nelson County with a 190.

  • Experience abounds on WC...

     

    After practicing all summer, Washington County volleyball coach John Rogers and his Commanderette team are ready to get on the court against a real opponent.

    “I think they’re ready to start playing somebody else,” Rogers said.

    Washington County hosted Central Hardin this past week in a scrimmage to prepare for the start of the regular season, and Rogers said he liked what he saw from his squad.

  • Cards make a clean sweep, finish...

     

    You might say the Little League Cardinals baseball team at Idle Hour Park is in a groove.

    The team just completed its second perfect season, posting a 12-0 regular season record, then winning two games in tournament play to improve to 14-0.

    Coach Scotty Roution’s team also went undefeated last season, winning the regular-season and tournament championships.

    Repeating as champs is never an easy accomplishment, and Roution said he didn’t expect it going into this season.
