    The Washington County Commanders closed out the 2008-09 basketball season Wednesday with a 34-21 loss to eventual champion Bardstown in the first round of the 19th District Tournament.

    The Commanders started the first quarter with a different pace than fans are used to. They held the ball in an attempt to limit Bardstown’s possessions and slow down the Tiger offense. In fact, almost five minutes went by in the quarter before anyone scored.

    But Luther Bramblett’s Bat Pats made the chilly temperatures a little more bearable at Edelen-Haydon Field by swinging some hot bats in a three-game sweep of the Redhawks who were in action for the first time this season. Saturday saw the Patriots sweep a twin bill by scores of 10-0 and 9-6. Sunday they plucked the Redhawks 22-1.
