    It’s no secret that Nelson County is the team to beat in 19th District softball. The Lady Cards have been a dominant force for almost two decades, so when the Washington County Commanderettes see the Lady Cards pulling into Springfield, they know they have a fight on their hands.

    When the two teams locked horns on March 30, it was Nelson County who got off to an early 4-0 lead after the top of the first inning, and they never looked back, beating WC 12-1 in the first district match-up of the year.

    The Washington County Commanderettes opened the 2010 softball season on the road March 23 with a trip to Burgin. WC took a 2-1 lead after the first inning. By the time the top of the second inning was over, the Lady Bulldogs didn’t know what had hit them, as WC reeled off 10 more runs to go up 12-2.

    For the Commanderettes in the top of the third, it was a little like Top 40 radio - the hits just kept on coming as WC plated eight more and added four more in the fourth to wallop the Lady Bulldogs, 24-3.
