    The Washington County Commanders improved their district record to a perfect 4-0 with big wins over Nelson County and Bethlehem this past week.

    WC beat Nelson County 3-2 at Tom Bystrek Field in Springfield Wednesday. The lead changed hands a couple of times, but in the end, it was a bases-loaded sac fly by senior first baseman Jordan Settles that allowed sophomore shortstop Trae Abell to tag from third and cross the plate for the win.

    One of the catchwords in today’s athletic lexicon is “focus.” Coaches talk to the players about the need for it, announcers will tell us who they think has such and who doesn’t. But all who saw Friday’s doubleheader against the University of the Cumberlands would agree that the St. Catharine College baseball team was focused on the task at hand.

    Any time your lead-off batter starts a game with a solo home run and you never trail for the rest of the contest, that’s a good sign. It’s even better when the win comes against a district opponent who has struggled all season. That’s exactly what happened Thursday night as the Washington County Commanderettes cruised past the Bardstown Lady Tigers 21-9 in Bardstown.

    Junior pitcher Hannah Simms one-hit the Bardstown Lady Tigers as the Washington County Commanderettes blanked the district rival 15-0 on April 19. While Simms practically shut down the Lady Tiger offense, it was WC’s bats that were doing all of the roaring, pounding out 15 runs on as many hits.

    Although the Commanders’ bid to advance in state All ‘A’ play was halted by a 6-0 loss to DeSales last Wednesday, it was still a good week for Washington County baseball. The team got a couple of big district wins over Bethlehem and Bardstown to grab a share of the 19th District pie.

    After shutting out Bethlehem 4-0 on April 1 in Campbellsville, the Commanders went two up on the Eagles on April 20 by beating Bethlehem 7-3 in Bardstown for their first district win of the season.

    The University of Rio Grande visited Edelen-Haydon Field over the weekend looking to claim first place in the Mid-South Conference by winning a four- game series over Luther Bramblett’s St. Catharine College Patriots. But the visitors instead lost two of three games (the fourth was rained out) and will have to settle for a second-place finish behind regular-season champion Campbellsville University.
