    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.

    The St. Catharine College Patriots played three basketball games last week against teams with a combined record of 3-16. But while head coach J.T. Burton recognized the talent level his team faced, he also credited his own squad for taking care of business.

    “We didn’t look ready to play Friday and it showed with 28 turnovers,” said Burton. “But Saturday we came out focused. We are up 60 points in that game and our guys are still taking charges.”

    The Washington County Commanders tuned up for the season-opening game against Taylor County by hosting a scrimmage vs. Garrard County Nov. 23. While head coach Russell Burkhead liked what he saw in the early going, he saw some things that need some attention and focus.

    “I liked what I saw until the fourth quarter,” said Burkhead. “We got tired, especially with the football players who have been here for about a week.”

    Time to shift gears

    Well, before I dive head-first into this week’s column, I thought I would give my loyal readers a little update on how I’m doing following my stroke.

    C'mon get rhythm

    Remember the days before free agency, when professional athletics were pretty much slaves to whatever team owned them? Now while a lot of that old way of doing business is now looked down upon, it also had its good points, as hard as that may be to believe.

    It’s that time again. People have been raking up fallen leaves by the bagful, hooded sweatshirts and jeans replace tee-shirts and shorts as the choice of daily attire, and the morning air is filled with the scent of burning firewood. Yes, it’s time for high school basketball in Washington County.
