    The Washington County Commanderette volleyball team raised $500 toward breast cancer research last Tuesday with a Dig for a Cure game. During the game, the team held a silent auction for a volleyball signed by the team and held several other contests.

    While the team was finding success off the court, it also came up a winner on the court as the Commanderettes beat Taylor County in three games to win, 2-1 (25-9, 12-25, 25-22).

    They say defense wins ball games, and there has never been better evidence of that than the last two Washington County football games. After beating Marion County 3-0 on Sept. 24, the Commanders earned their second straight shutout against Bethlehem Friday night, blanking the Eagles 30-0. The win puts WC at 6-0 on the season.

  • From Left Field

    With Washington County being a community based in farming and agriculture, I’m sure most people can appreciate the effort it takes to plant seeds and let crops grow into maturity. They know that you cannot harvest while the crops are still green.

    When Washington County head football coach Mark Perry sowed those seeds back in 2004, he, like any good farmer, knew that it would take years of nurturing and growing before he would see the mature results of his labor.

  • Campbellsville sweeps Patriots...

    Special to The Sun

    In a home soccer Mid-South Conference doubleheader last Tuesday, both the St. Catharine men and women fell to the Campbellsville Tigers. Paul Patton’s women lost the opener 6-0, and Tim Wolz’s men were topped 4-1 by the Tigers.

    The women’s contest was scoreless for 13 minutes before the Tigers, 5-4 overall and 2-1 in the MSC, scored the game’s first goal. They added a second goal with 13 minutes to play in the first half, and the score remained 2-0 until halftime.

  • SCC volleyball drops two in...

    Special to The Sun

    The St. Catharine College volleyball team journeyed to southeast Ohio last weekend to play two Mid-South Conference matches. And with Adam Stevenson’s team playing shorthanded due to injuries and illness, the Patriots returned with two losses against Rio Grande and Shawnee State.

    Friday at Rio Grande the Patriots (3-24 overall and 0-5 in the MSC) fought hard against a good RedStorm team in losing the first set 26-24. They then dropped the next two sets by scores of 25-16 and 25-19.

  • Dig for a Cure Volleyball Game

    Washington County will host a Dig for a Cure volleyball game vs. Taylor County on Tuesday, Oct. 5.

    Both teams will be wearing pink and Washington County will be conducting fundraisers throughout the night to raise money toward breast cancer research.

    In between games we will be auctioning off a pink volleyball signed by all the players.

    We ask that everyone come out to support the fight against breast cancer. Game time is 6 p.m.

    The game between the Commanders and Bethlehem wasn’t the only action on the gridiron last week. Washington County homecoming festivities got off to a rousing start with the annual powder puff football game at WCHS. Despite a pair of touchdowns by senior Jaclyn Kelty, the juniors and sophomores held on for a 14-12 win.
