    The Commanderettes fell to the Cardinals in four sets (30-28, 25-13, 19-25, 25-21).

  • Haydon a top-ranked cornhole...

    Philip Haydon doesn’t remember exactly when he started playing cornhole — “It was probably seven or eight years ago, when everyone started playing,” he said — but he does remember that he didn’t have a problem “putting the bag in the hole” from the very start.

    Haydon became hooked immediately, playing every night soon after he tried it for the first time.

  • Patriot wrestlers to honor...

  • SCC women’s soccer wins high-...

    It’s not very often that there are 10 goals scored in one women’s soccer match, but that’s how many were scored on Saturday afternoon when the Patriot women’s soccer team (5-7) defeated Oakland City (Ind.) 7-3.

    It was a career day for freshman, Bethany Massey. The Oldham County, Ky. native netted the first hat-trick of her career to lead the Patriots in the win. Four other Patriots also found their name in the scoring column to finish off the 7-3 victory.

    The Washington County Commanderettes volleyball team fell against the Bardstown Tigers in three straight sets (25-16, 25-18, 25-20) on Thursday night during its final district match of the regular season.

    A win against Bardstown (17-10, 4-4) would have ensured the Commanderettes (13-16, 3-5) an opening-round bye and the opportunity to only need one win in order to secure a trip to the 5th Region Volleyball Tournament and a spot in the district finals.

  • Commanders win 51-26, move to 4-3

    The Washington County Commanders picked up their first district win in convincing fashion on Friday night, defeating the Shawnee Golden Eagles by a score of 51-26.

    What started out as a closely contested matchup between the teams quickly turned into a rout. After the Commanders (4-3, 1-0) scored on their opening possession, the Golden Eagles (0-6, 0-1) answered with a touchdown of their own.

    But the Commanders pulled away with three unanswered scores to go up 29-6 and had a 35-12 lead going into halftime.
