    The Washington County Commanders are finding themselves in a tough spot. A 12-2 win over Bardstown in six innings last Tuesday improved their district record to 4-3, slightly ahead of 3-3 Nelson County.

    That sets up a first-round district tournament game against the Cardinals, who have beaten WC 14 out of their last 15 meetings. WC beat Nelson 10-2 on May 1.

    Commander pitcher Joseph Hamilton got the win and senior shortstop Joe Joe Simms went four-for-four.

    Area golfers hit the links Saturday morning for the first-ever Washington County Relay for Life Golf Scramble at Lincoln Homestead Golf Course.

    Heavy rains the day before made for sloppy conditions, but the skies began to clear around tee time.

    The shotgun start got under way at 9 a.m. with 15 teams climbing into their carts for a good cause.

    A barbeque lunch provided by Mordecai’s On Main was served at the turn.

    They don’t yet know who they will play. They aren’t sure at what time they play, although they know it will be on Tuesday. But what Luther Bramblett’s Patriots do know for sure is that they will be playing for a national championship next week.

    The quest for a national title begins Tuesday in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) eight-team, double-elimination tournament. St. Catharine now owns a 32-14 record, which could change this week if weather allows two games recently scheduled to be played.

    Just call them the Road Warriors. With four of their last five games on the road, and their next four away as well, the Washington County softball team has seen its fair share of the inside of a school bus. Maybe that’s why they’re happy to get out on the diamond and take it out on their opponents.
