    It was a hard-fought and emotional loss for the Washington County Commanders Friday night as they lost 24-14 to Bardstown in a district showdown. The Tigers are poised to win the district outright if they can win against Fort Knox this Friday while the Commanders can still secure an opening-round playoff game at home with a defeat of Danville.

    The action got started Friday night as a light drizzle fell onto the field, making for slippery conditions that would play a key factor in the game.

    The Washington County Commanderette golf team finished out their 2009 season with regional play at Shawnee Golf Course in Louisville on Sept. 29.

    Junior Emily Cecconi, sophomore Callie Harmon, eighth-grader Amanda Cox and fifth-grader Emily Cox all saw action on what head coach Tom Harmon described as a very wet and very cold day.

    Although the Commanderettes finished near the bottom, they were not last and they gained valuable experience in preparation for next season.

    Does size matter?

    It seems to be the argument for most teams that are not doing well, from youth leagues all the way up to the pros. You can hear it being whispered in the bleachers, ‘If we only had players with some size.’

    When Steve Thompson and Jude Spalding took to the softball field, they never dreamed of someday being hall-of-famers. But now, that’s exactly what they are. The two Washington County residents are among this year’s inductees into the Kentucky Softball Hall of Fame and Honor in Lexington. Thompson and Spalding attended the induction ceremony last Saturday.

    “It’s a real honor,” Thompson said. “I never thought I’d get into something like that.”

    My alma mater left for fodder

    You know, there are probably a lot of people here in Washington County who are not natives to this area. I know I’m not the only one, right?

    I’m just wondering how many of us non-locals still follow athletics from the school from which we graduated.

    Washington County High School celebrated homecomingFriday night, and no one was happier to be back on home turf than the football Commanders, who came out of the gate early and never looked back on their way to a 48-7 rout of Fort Knox.

    The Eagles swept into Springfield looking for their first win of the season. To make the stakes even higher, this was the first district contest of the year for both teams, so up for grabs was a chance to get a foothold in district standings.
