    Washington County boys’ head basketball coach Russell Burkhead knows that every game is a battle. But sometimes you run across a game that is more like an all-out war, especially when your team is 0-3 out of the gate.

    Add to the mix the fact that the opponent for that game is Marion County, and you have the ingredients for a classic match-up.

    “This is a heated rivalry that has been going on as long as this school has been around,” Burkhead said before the game.

    At IU-Southeast last Tuesday the Patriots led by as many as 16 points in the first half and still held a 33-27 advantage at the break. But the Grenadiers, (6-2) held the Patriots to 38 percent in the second half to capture a 63-61 win.

    The Washington County Commanders got to break in that “new season smell” as the 2009/10 basketball season got under way last Tuesday with WC on the road at Taylor County. The host Cardinals weren’t very hospitable to their guests, as they handily won, 62-23.

    WC hit a three-pointer early to lead 3-1, but it was all Taylor County from that point.

    The Commanderettes notched their first victory of the season Monday night with a 68-59 win over Boyle County.

    Washington County’s 6’2” freshman Kenya Turner was a rebounding tour de force, getting plenty of action off both the defensive and offensive glass. Kayla Edelen also added some height, and when paired with the speed of Shay Yocum, the Commanderettes were able to outpace the Lady Rebels in three out of four quarters of play.
