    The Washington County Commander football team (2-4, 2-2) had a dominating performance last Friday night against the Shawnee Golden Eagles (4-4, 1-4). The Commanders rushed for 387 yards on 54 tries and containing a potentially explosive Shawnee passing attack on defense for a 43-18 win over a district opponent.

  • Emily Cox competes at state

    Washington County sophomore golfer Emily Cox made a “dream come true” last week when she participated in her first-ever state tournament.

    Although she acknowledged that she made “a couple of bad swings on a few holes,” Cox was pleased with her performance overall.

    She posted an 89 in the first round and only missed the cut of the top 20 scores by five strokes.

    “It’s hard to come back from some of those bad swings, but the main thing was that I really, really had a lot of fun,” Cox said.

    Coming off of a bye week, the Washington County Commander football team (1-4, 1-2) will face off this Friday against the Shawnee Golden Eagles (4-3, 1-3).

    Last year’s 42-39 win over Shawnee proved to be a game to remember for WC, with then-senior Ty’Lyn Byas rushing for a school-record 361 yards on 41 carries and scoring the game-winning touchdown with just 36 seconds left on the clock.

  • Emily Cox heads to state

    In a season spent adjusting to a new swing, Washington County sophomore golfer Emily Cox has had what she calls “a little bit of a setback year,” but her No. 1 goal from the start has been to make the state tournament this season.

    And her mission was accomplished after carding an 89 last week at the girls’ regional tournament.

    That finish was good enough for the final qualifying spot, even though she acknowledged it wasn’t her “best day.”

    With only five games remaining in the Washington County Commanderette volleyball team’s (18-6, 4-3) season, head coach Anne Mudd has been impressed overall with what she’s seen out of her players this year.

    She was especially pleased with how her team played last week against district opponent Thomas Nelson (2-21, 0-7). The Commanderettes made quick work of the Generals, finishing them off in straight sets, 25-13, 25-16, 25-15.

  • WC football notches its first...

    In the days leading up to the Washington County Commanders’ (1-4, 1-2) Friday night showdown with the Thomas Nelson Generals (3-3, 0-2) last week, WC head coach Eric

    Sagrecy had a message for his team: keep working hard.

    The Commanders were off to an 0-4 start but had also played four “awfully good” teams, some of the toughest competition in the state, in fact. But Sagrecy challenged his team to “keep their heads down, keep working and keep making strides as a football team.”
