    With the 19th District Tournament fast-approaching, the bats for the Washington County Commanders fell silent last week with losses to Campbellsville, Boyle County and Woodford County.

    As the old saying goes, “It’s one thing to get to the top, it’s another thing to stay there.” That’s what Washington County boys’ baseball head coach Derek Schuler is experiencing right now as the Commanders have locked up the top seed in the upcoming district tournament later this month, but they feel like every game from now until the end of the season is important.
