  • WC rolls over winless Trimble

    After looking at an 8-8 tied score early in the first quarter, the Washington County Commanders (3-3) kicked it into high gear and went on a 44-8 run the rest of the way against a struggling Trimble County Raiders (0-7) team last Friday night to pick up a 52-16 win.

    The Commanders not only battled the Raiders in the game, though, as they had to go up against a constant rain and the cold as well, but WC head coach Eric Sagrecy believes his team came out victorious on all fronts.

  • Commanderettes get big district...

     The Washington County Commanderettes (13-14, 3-4) built on the momentum from their recent “Queens of the Court” tournament win with a huge district victory against the Nelson County Cardinals (11-14, 2-5).

    After a close five-set win against the Cardinals early in the season, the Commanderettes controlled their most recent victory from the start, finishing them off in three straight sets (25-11, 25-13, 25-22).

  • Emily Cox qualifies for second...

     Washington County junior golfer Emily Cox will be headed to her second consecutive state tournament later this week after a solid showing in the region tournament.

    Cox advanced to her second appearance at state after shooting an 87 in the 3rd Region Girls’ Golf Tournament, which was held last week at Heritage Hill Golf Club in Shepherdsville, Ky. Her performance was the sixth-best score of the event and the lowest score from any golfer who wasn’t from Elizabethtown High School.

  • WC volleyball wins weekend...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
