  • WC girls hard at work last week

    The Washington County Commanderettes had a busy week of play, picking up two wins while suffering three losses.

    On March 31, the Commanderettes traveled to play against the Marion County Lady Knights in their fourth game of the season. The Commanderettes fell 11-3 despite rallying for two runs in the sixth inning.

    “You gotta hit to score and score to win,” Commanderettes head coach Christy Baker said.

    She added that her team scored too late in the game and had too many errors, allowing things to snowball against them.

    The tandem of Luis Roman and Kerkoc-Portillo and the Barrientos brothers each picked wins in doubles action.

  • Girls gear up for season

    With the snow and rain out of the region, the Washington County Commanderettes are gearing up for a season of thrills and chills. The young team, which features a number of underclassmen, had its first game of the season rained out, but it wasn’t enough to keep them from practicing in the new high school’s gym last week.

    Commanderettes head coach Christy Baker said they hope to improve on their season record this year. In 2014, they finished 10-16.
