  • Baseball starts preseason with...

     It was the beginning of a new season for the Washington County Commanders baseball team on Friday, March 3, and it started out just as everyone hoped: with a win. The Commanders took on Hart County in pre-season play and came away with a 9-3 win. Head coach Adam Blair was pleased with how his team performed against the host Raiders.

    “The game went well for our first time stepping on the field against another team,” Blair said.

  • Blair’s Commanders open season...

    As this crazy weather season moves into March, high school baseball follows soon after at Washington County High School. For head coach Adam Blair, he expects his team to heat up very quickly this season.

    Blair enters his third season as coach of the Commander baseball team. During his time as coach, the team has won two consecutive district championships and has been successful in district play, posting a 17-3 district record last season. For obvious reasons, Blair says he expects more of the same this year.

  • Baker’s Commanderettes set to...

    Success is always something to savor and enjoy. For the Washington County softball team, coming off its most successful season ever last year, expectations are high for head coach Christy Baker and her players, and confidence is growing for the upcoming season.

    “We’re looking good so far,” Baker said.

  • Girls show character through...

    Young teams face struggles, and that has been the case for the Washington County Commanderettes. Lena Bramblett’s girls’ basketball team has posted a record of 2-13 so far this season, but one thing Bramblett and assistant coach JT Roby have seen from the squad is a determination to keep fighting and never give up.

    After Saturday night’s game at Marion County, a 56-23 loss, Bramblett said here players are responding to encouragement from their coaches.

    All the Washington County Commanders wanted for Christmas was to win the Arby’s/KFC Holiday Classic at McCreary Central High School. Santa didn’t bring that present, but coach Bernard Smalley’s boys did deliver two wins against tough opponents in their four-game stint in the tournament.

    The Commanders opened things up to face Whitley County last Tuesday night, and they came out ready to play.

  • Girls lose three in tournament...

    Some tough competition over the Christmas holiday left the Washington County Commanderettes in the midst of an eight-game skid as they get ready for the new year.

    The ladies played three games in Campbellsville’s Food Pantry Holiday Classic last week, falling in all three games.

  • SCC coach, players find success...

    When St. Catharine College closed its doors in June 2016, SCC baseball coach Luther Bramblett was left with many questions. He, along with the student-athletes he coached and mentored, faced uncertain futures as a result of the closing.

    “It was a difficult time,” said Bramblett, who spent 15 years as the head baseball coach at St. Catharine.

  • Commanders fall to Kentucky...

    The Washington County Commanders traveled to Louisville Saturday, May 13, to battle Kentucky Country Day. The game quickly got away from the Commanders in the second inning, and they couldn’t recover, suffering an 11-0 loss.

    “KCD is a good team,” said Commander head coach Adam Blair. “They got away from us early.”

    After allowing an early run in the first inning, KCD scored seven runs in the second to put the game out of reach for the Commanders.

    The Washington County Commanderettes finished a very strong 2016-17 season. The team finished 15-15 overall, but that included a second consecutive 19th District Championship and a berth into the Region 5 Softball Tournament. They also won the 12th Region All “A” Classic in April for the first time in school history, earning them a spot in the All “A” State Tournament. Head coach Christy Baker was very pleased with how the season went and being able to win district for just the second time in school history.
