  • WC softball loses in Mercer

    The Washington County Commanderettes (14-10, 6-2) had more hits and fewer errors than the Mercer County Titans (14-13) in a matchup between the two teams on Monday night, but they couldn’t pull out a win in a game that went down to the wire, losing 6-5.

    Monday night’s matchup quickly transformed from a defensive battle to an offensive outburst in the sixth inning after the Titans took a 2-0 lead after five innings.

  • Drury competes in region tourney

    That’s how Washington County tennis player Chase Drury began his run in the 5th Region Tournament at Freeman Lake Park in Elizabethtown.

    Drury opened up tournament play against Elizabethtown’s Ameer Haider, who received the No. 5 overall seed for boys’ singles play.

    Head coach Beth Gooch said that Drury, who she believed had been “underestimated” by not receiving a seed to begin the tournament, started with a passion she hadn’t seen in him before and that he never let up throughout the match.

  • Commanderettes continue winning...

    The Washington County Commanderettes (14-9, 6-2) have been on a roll since returning from spring break in early April, and they picked up two more wins last week to maintain their hot streak.

    After defeating Thomas Nelson 8-2 on Tuesday and Danville 15-0 on Friday, the Commanderettes improved to 8-2 since playing in the Fort Walton Beach Bash.

  • WC bass fishing pair signs with...

    Coming on the heels of their region tournament win, Washington County bass fishing team members Michael Shelton and Trevor Sagrecy accomplished something else they had been aspiring to: getting a college bass fishing scholarship.

    The two signed with Campbellsville University last week, becoming the first from WC’s bass fishing team to earn a college scholarship in the program’s four-year existence.

  • WC softball now 12-9

    The Washington County Commanderettes (12-9, 5-2) split their two games last week, defeating Nelson County 14-3 in five innings and falling to Spencer County 13-5. WC was scheduled to play Marion County on Monday, but the game was cancelled due to inclement weather.

  • WC baseball snaps streak

    The Washington County Commanders (14-11, 6-1) broke out of their six-game losing streak in a big way last week, notching two district wins against Bardstown and Bethlehem. The Commanders defeated Bardstown 8-2 last Tuesday night before picking up a come-from-behind 6-5 victory against Bethlehem. 

  • WC bass fishing team wins region

    It turned out to be a waiting game.

    Washington County’s Michael Shelton and Trevor Sagrecy were one of the first 10 boats to weigh in, but it wasn’t until around the 30th boat checked the scales and the pair still held the top weigh-in that they realized they had a real chance to win the 2nd Region Bass Fishing Tournament.

    But all they could do was wait.

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Evan Mattingly

    Evan Mattingly was 3 years old when he joined his first T-ball team. His father, Jim, was “a big baseball fan,” and with Evan’s older brother, Luke, set to play on their father’s team, Evan naturally wanted to join.

    And from that point on, Evan was hooked on baseball.

    “My dad got me into it, and I’ve loved it ever since,” he said.

  • Commanderettes get lopsided...

    After dominating the Bardstown Tigers by 20 runs in the teams’ first meeting, it seemed as if the Washington County Commanderettes would cruise to their 11th victory of the season in last week’s district matchup.

    But it was the Tigers who controlled the game early on, taking an early 4-1 advantage through two innings.
