  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Taylor Eldridge

    Going into her senior season at Washington County High School, Taylor Eldridge wasn’t sure what to expect. Eldridge had played basketball for the Commanderettes since she was in middle school, but a new coaching staff meant that, if she did play, Eldridge would be playing for her third head coach in three years.

    After reluctantly deciding to give basketball another chance, it didn’t take long for her to figure out she had made the right choice.

  • Commanderettes fall in first...

    It was a week of finales for the Washington County Commanderettes (7-23, 0-9). Last week, the Commanderettes honored their four seniors — Lexi Thompson, Daisha Edelen, Taylor Eldridge and Bree Crain — Tuesday night after a 61-18 win over the Fort Knox Eagles (3-26) in the team’s final regular-season game of the season, avenging a 42-34 loss to the Hart County Raiders (7-13) the night before.

  • WC boys get district tourney win

    Survive and advance.

    That’s exactly what the Washington County Commanders (12-19, 3-6)  did after picking up a 53-31 win over the Thomas Nelson Generals (1-30, 0-9) in the first round of the 19th District Tournament on Monday night.

    The victory came on the heels of a three-game losing streak for WC, with a 60-45 loss to the Metcalfe County Hornets (3-23), a 56-49 defeat at the hands of the Fort Knox Eagles (10-19) and a 57-52 loss to the Hart County Raiders (11-15).

  • Commanders win three straight

    The Washington County Commanders (11-16, 2-6) accomplished something last week they hadn’t done in nine years: win three consecutive games.

The Commanders then put together an impressive 54-46 win against the Campbellsville Eagles (10-15) that included a second-half comeback by WC, and to finish off the week, the Commanders went on the road and picked up a 67-61 win against the Dayton Greendevils (12-14).

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Bree Crain

     Bree Crain was 5 years old when she first joined an Upward basketball team. She had tried all of the other sports that she could, but from the start, she knew that basketball was the one for her.

    “I did T-ball and all that stuff, but I really liked the team aspect of basketball,” she said. “Basketball was definitely my favorite.”
