  • WC volleyball wins weekend...

    A lineup tweak by head coach Casey Mudd made all the difference for the Washington County Commanderettes (12-12, 2-4) this past weekend, who came out victorious in the Queens of the Court by mediaplayer"> tournament at Western Hills High School.

  • WC prepares for Trimble

    Coming off a bye week, Washington County head football coach Eric Sagrecy’s main focus for his team was to get healthy before playing the Trimble County Raiders (0-6) this Friday night.

    The Commanders (2-3) had lost three of their starters — juniors Garrett Floyd and Anterius Edelen and senior Morrison Smith — during their previous game against the Casey County Rebels (3-2). In addition, they lost a starting defensive end, senior Chaz Curtsinger, in the walkthrough prior to that game.

  • Volleyball returns from All...

    For the second straight year, the Washington County Commanderettes (7-11, 2-4) found themselves playing in the All “A” State Classic, which was held at the Mid-America Sports Complex in Louisville this past weekend.

    Play in the All “A” State tournament consists of a three-match pool play, where the top teams — based on the teams’ records from the pool play — move on to a winner’s bracket and the bottom two teams play in the consolation bracket.

  • WC golf competes at Heartland...

    The Washington County Commanders golf team participated in the annual Heartland Conference tournament last week and finished with solid scores across the board.

    As a team, the WC boys finished with a total score of 363, good enough for a third-place finish and trailing only Taylor County and Campbellsville, which had team scores of 307 and 348, respectively. The score helped the Commanders finish ahead of Marion County (366), Adair County (382) and Green County (385).

  • Commander golf team drops two...

    The Washington County Commanders golf team fell just short in its two matches last week.

    On Thursday, the Commanders played a home match at Lincoln Homestead Park against Marion County, falling by a score of 167-178.

    WC was led by Evan Mattingly, who shot a 41, good for the second-highest total of the event and only trailing a match-leading 37 by Marion County’s Noah Dye.

    Marion County’s next three leaders — Houstan Raikes, Bryce Spalding and Ethan Spalding — carded scores of 42, 44 and 44, respectively.

  • 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.
