  • Commanderettes’ season ends with...

    Beating a team three times in a row is not an easy task, and the Washington County Commanderette volleyball squad learned that lesson in the opening round of 19th District Tournament play.

    After having beaten Bardstown (23-10, 6-4) twice this season, both coming within the past calendar month, Washington County (19-13, 5-5) coach John Rogers knew his team would have to be up for a tough match.

  • Commanders shut out against...

    The Washington County Commanders travelled to play the DeSales Colts this past Friday night, but WC was unable to come out with a win against a perennial Class 2A state championship contender, losing 55-0.

    Despite the final outcome, WC head coach Eric Sagrecy said he was pleased with the effort the Commanders (2-6, 1-1) consistently gave throughout the contest and especially in the first half.

    Washington County head volleyball coach John Rogers wanted to see his team enter district tournament play with plenty of momentum, and with a three-match winning streak to end the regular season, that’s exactly what he got. After losing three consecutive matches, the Commanderettes (19-13, 5-3) bounced back strong in their last three, defeating Anderson County, Franklin County and Bardstown.

     

  • WC volleyball falls in three...

    The Washington County Commanderettes (16-13, 4-3) traveled to Central Hardin High School last week to take on the Bruins, but they came up short against one of the perennial contenders in the 5th Region, losing in three straight sets (25-13, 25-14, 25-13).

  • Commanders get second straight...

    The Washington County Commanders (2-5, 1-0) lost their first five games of the season, but two blowout victories in a row have helped the team get its season back on track.

    WC built off its first victory of the season the week before — a 41-0 shutout of Trimble County — with a 56-20 district win over the Shawnee Golden Eagles (0-6, 0-1) this past Friday night.

    The tone of the game was set early on in the first quarter, when defensive back Trey Cheatham intercepted a Shawnee pass to give the Commanders possession.

  • Commanderettes fall to Green Co...

    The Washington County Commanderettes played in two of their closest matches of the season last week but came up short in both contests, losing to Green County in five sets on Thursday and to West Jessamine in four sets on Tuesday.

    The Commanderettes (16-12, 4-3) started last week’s slate off with a matchup against the West Jessamine Colts (22-8), and despite only going four sets, none of the sets was decided by more than five points and only one was decided by more than three points.

  • WC gets first win in convincing...

    The Washington County Commanders didn’t look like a squad that hadn’t won any games up until last Friday night, but they controlled the contest from the first whistle in their 41-0 rout of the Trimble County Raiders (1-6).

    The game immediately followed WC’s homecoming festivities, and the excitement felt by the students during the pre-game ceremonies quickly translated onto the field, as the Commanders (1-5) scored on a six-play drive to open the game.

  • Commanders prepare for Trimble...

     The Washington County Commanders are still looking for their first win, and on Friday night, they will have a chance to pick it up against a squad they defeated by 36 points last year.

    After having a bye last week, the Commanders (0-5) will face the Trimble County Raiders (1-4) in a rematch of WC’s 52-16 victory from last season.

  • WC volleyball racks up district...

    Energy.

    Washington County head volleyball coach John Rogers said his team has lacked it in recent matches, and it was something he wanted to focus on fixing in practice last week.

    Those efforts paid off in a district match on Thursday against the Thomas Nelson Generals (10-15, 0-6), a contest in which the Commanderettes (16-10, 4-3) dominated from the beginning and took in three straight sets, winning by scores of 25-18, 25-8 and 25-23.
