  • Winning Big

    The Washington County Commanders are peaking at just the right time. With only one week of regular-season play remaining, WC just completed one of its most successful weeks of the year, defeating the Thomas Nelson Generals (1-25, 0-7) and the Cumberland County Panthers (1-21) by at least 20 points each, the first time the Commanders have completed this feat all season, before falling to the Marion County Knights (8-18) by a score of 75-63.

     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.”

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Lexi Thompson

     When Lexi Thompson came to Washington County in middle school, she was looking for a way to connect with some of the other students.

    After having attended Woodland Elementary School in Hardin County, Thompson wasn’t sure what to expect as a new student, but she did have an idea of how she could make friends: basketball.

    Thompson had “always thought basketball was pretty good,” so she jumped at the chance to start playing as a way to meet some of her peers.

    On Saturday night, the Commanderettes fell to the Marion County Knights (6-6) by a score of 78-48. 

    Despite the final score, though, head coach Lena Bramblett said her team, which was without starter Ashley Yates, played one of its “better-played games.”

  • WC takes down rival Marion County

    The Washington County Commanders (4-9, 1-4) went 1-2 last week in games against Marion County, Bethlehem and Bardstown, but the team’s lone victory was a big one for the Commanders: a win over Marion County, a bitter rival they hadn’t defeated in 14 previous tries.
