  • WC falls short against Thomas...

     A drive in the final minute fell just short for the Washington County Commanders on Friday night, with the team dropping its fourth game of the season in a 27-22 loss to the Thomas Nelson Generals (3-1).

    The Commanders (0-4) couldn’t get going on their opening drive of the game, but running back Garrett Floyd got the team off to a hot start with a 44-yard run at the start of the second drive to give WC a 6-0 lead with 7:38 remaining in the first quarter after an unsuccessful extra-point attempt.

  • WC volleyball win streak hits...

    After an 0-4 start to the season, the Washington County Commanderettes (5-4, 0-2) have finally found their groove, winning their next five matches, including last week’s matchups with the Woodford County Yellow Jackets (7-5) and the Danville Admirals (2-9).

    WC head coach John Rogers said the team has been working on improving its serving all year long, and that focus showed through in the Commanderettes’ three-set win (25-14, 25-11, 25-17) over Woodford County.

  • Commanders lose 63-28 to...

    The Washington County Commanders (0-3) were able to keep up for one half in a road game against the Kentucky Country Day Bearcats (2-1) on Friday night, but a second-half surge by KCD ended in a 63-28 blowout Commander loss.

    The Bearcats started the game off with a quick score on their opening possession, but the Commanders answered back on their next drive. Facing a 3rd and 12, WC quarterback John Floyd threw a long pass to Jason Anderson, who drew a pass interference penalty on a KCD cornerback at the Bearcats’ 38-yard line.

  • Sure Shot

    Brady Lawson practically grew up with a gun in his hand.

    By the time he was 7 years old, he was already hunting, and within three years, he had picked up a sport that would become his passion: trapshooting.

    “I just kind of started shooting trap out with [his grandfather, Glenn Lawson] in the backyard,” Brady said. “He’s loved guns ever since he could pick one up,” added his father, Tim. “My dad was a trapshooter, and [Brady’s] just got a natural knack for it.”

  • Commanders fall to 0-2 on season

    The Washington County Commanders (0-2) had the ball with less than a minute to play with an opportunity to win Saturday night but fell just short against the Taylor County Cardinals (1-1) in the Forcht Bank Bowl, losing 32-26.

    The matchup literally started with a bang, as thunder and lightning forced the game into a delay that would last for three hours and caused the cancellation of a contest featuring Casey County and Glasgow that was slated to follow WC’s game.

  • Commanders lose opening game

    The Washington County Commanders found themselves in a shootout last Friday night, but they were unable to come out with a win, falling short 54-40 against the high-powered offense of the Western Hills Wolverines during the season opener.

    Despite a two-possession deficit on the board at the end of the game, it looked as if Western Hills would run away in a blowout early on.

  • WC volleyball starts season 0-3

    The Washington County Commanderettes lost their first three games of the season last week, but they did so while playing three of the top teams in the 5th Region.

    And that was by design, according to head coach John Rogers.

    “We wanted to load that schedule up, and with the way the girls are fighting, they understand what the game plan is,” he said. “0-3 has no negative effect on us whatsoever as far as the district tournament and the region tournament go, unless we let it.”

  • Commander golf team falls to...

    The Washington County Commander golf team was in action last week, traveling to Taylor County to face off against the Campbellsville Eagles this past Thursday.

    The Commanders were unable to extend their two-match winning streak, though, falling to the Eagles by 21 strokes, with WC scoring 190 compared to Campbellsville’s 169.
