    Despite a strong pitching performance by Michael Chastain, the Washington County 9-10-year-old all-stars fell 5-2 to Campbellsville in the Kentucky Little League District 5 championship game last Tuesday.

    The game started off even through the first two innings as each team held the other scoreless.

    Washington County struck first with a two-out, two-run rally in the top of the third to go ahead 2-0.

    Last Tuesday, Washington County Little League coach Billy Hilton once again found himself and his team playing for a district championship with a trip to the state tournament on the line. Last year’s 11-12-year-old team raised the bar as they won their first ever game in the state tournament by beating Morgan County 5-2, but eventually going 1-2 in pool play. This year, it was a tough Campbellsville team that stood in the way of the District 5 crown and a trip to Richmond.

    Several local high school girls turned out last week for Commanderette volleyball tryouts. Head coach Brett Hudson, assisted by Jordan Reinle, put the girls through their paces, working on passing, hitting, serving and basic fundamentals.

    “We have about 14 girls returning from last year,” said Hudson. “We’re looking to add about eight or nine to put us around 22 or 23.”
