  • Commanderettes drop second...

    The Washington County Commanderettes softball team didn’t quite have the game it wanted against the Hart County Raiders Friday, losing 13-0 after five innings.

    Six runs by Hart County in the first inning very quickly put the Commanderettes in a big hole, and they were stifled on offense, unable to get runners into scoring position. Washington County didn’t get a runner to third base until the top of the fourth inning, and she was stranded there.

    “We started off scoring runs in the first two innings and playing well on both sides of the ball,” Blair said. “Overall, we played well for the first game.”

  • Commanderettes fall to...

     The Washington County Commanderettes softball team didn’t quite get off to the start it was hoping for, losing its season opener at Elizabethtown 15-3 Thursday. The game ended after five innings.

    Head coach Christy Baker was disappointed to start the season with a loss against a quality team.

    “I was pleased with our defense, especially since we have a few ladies in new positions,” Baker said.
