  • WC volleyball racks up district...

    Energy.

    Washington County head volleyball coach John Rogers said his team has lacked it in recent matches, and it was something he wanted to focus on fixing in practice last week.

    Those efforts paid off in a district match on Thursday against the Thomas Nelson Generals (10-15, 0-6), a contest in which the Commanderettes (16-10, 4-3) dominated from the beginning and took in three straight sets, winning by scores of 25-18, 25-8 and 25-23.

     The Washington County Commanders are still looking for their first win, and on Friday night, they will have a chance to pick it up against a squad they defeated by 36 points last year.

    After having a bye last week, the Commanders (0-5) will face the Trimble County Raiders (1-4) in a rematch of WC’s 52-16 victory from last season.

    The Washington County Commanderettes (12-9, 1-4) hit perhaps the busiest part of their schedule last week, playing in six matches in the span of five days.

    This stretch of matches started with their first district win of the season, a five-set district victory over the Thomas Nelson Generals (8-9, 0-4) on Tuesday night. From there, the Commanderettes hosted the Bethlehem Banshees (15-5, 4-1) on Thursday but fell in four sets.

    With the score tied 0-0 halfway into the first quarter, Friday night’s matchup between the Washington County Commanders and Casey County Rebels was delayed for more than an hour due to lightning.

    And when play resumed, the Rebels (4-0) seized control of the game almost immediately, scoring on a long touchdown two plays after the delay and sustaining that momentum on their way to a 49-7 victory.

  • WC falls short against Thomas...

     A drive in the final minute fell just short for the Washington County Commanders on Friday night, with the team dropping its fourth game of the season in a 27-22 loss to the Thomas Nelson Generals (3-1).

    The Commanders (0-4) couldn’t get going on their opening drive of the game, but running back Garrett Floyd got the team off to a hot start with a 44-yard run at the start of the second drive to give WC a 6-0 lead with 7:38 remaining in the first quarter after an unsuccessful extra-point attempt.

    WC head coach John Rogers said the team has been working on improving its serving all year long, and that focus showed through in the Commanderettes’ three-set win (25-14, 25-11, 25-17) over Woodford County.

  • Commanders lose 63-28 to...

    The Washington County Commanders (0-3) were able to keep up for one half in a road game against the Kentucky Country Day Bearcats (2-1) on Friday night, but a second-half surge by KCD ended in a 63-28 blowout Commander loss.

    The Bearcats started the game off with a quick score on their opening possession, but the Commanders answered back on their next drive. Facing a 3rd and 12, WC quarterback John Floyd threw a long pass to Jason Anderson, who drew a pass interference penalty on a KCD cornerback at the Bearcats’ 38-yard line.

  • Sure Shot

    Brady Lawson practically grew up with a gun in his hand.

    By the time he was 7 years old, he was already hunting, and within three years, he had picked up a sport that would become his passion: trapshooting.

    “I just kind of started shooting trap out with [his grandfather, Glenn Lawson] in the backyard,” Brady said. “He’s loved guns ever since he could pick one up,” added his father, Tim. “My dad was a trapshooter, and [Brady’s] just got a natural knack for it.”
