    There’s going to be a new face at Washington County High School football, volleyball, basketball, baseball and softball games in the coming seasons.

  • From Left Field

    Sometimes you just have to treat yourself. After wrapping up two hectic weeks of Little League all-stars, I had enough hours saved up to take a very rare Friday off. So I decided to check out a Reds game in Cincinnati, my first of the year.

    I lucked out because the game I attended featured a 20th anniversary celebration of the 1990 championship team. It was also MC Hammer night (The Reds’ unofficial theme song that year was U Can’t Touch This).

    The Washington County football Commanders have been shaping up for the 2010 season by bulking up on the field and making a few changes within the coaching staff.

    Gone from seasons past are assistant coaches Tim Messer and Jeff Doig. Messer has assumed more of an administrative role within the high school, while Doig moved out-of-state to take a new job.
