  • Heat Wave

    The Washington County Commander football team will have to wait another week to open the 2014 season.

    The scheduled showcase originally had Marion County and LaRue County slated to play in the opening matchup followed by the WC/Lloyd Memorial game.

    The games were at first postponed due to extreme heat, but after the high temperatures subsided, the games were ultimately cancelled.
