    The Washington County Commander football team (2-4, 2-2) had a dominating performance last Friday night against the Shawnee Golden Eagles (4-4, 1-4). The Commanders rushed for 387 yards on 54 tries and containing a potentially explosive Shawnee passing attack on defense for a 43-18 win over a district opponent.

  • Emily Cox competes at state

    Washington County sophomore golfer Emily Cox made a “dream come true” last week when she participated in her first-ever state tournament.

    Although she acknowledged that she made “a couple of bad swings on a few holes,” Cox was pleased with her performance overall.

    She posted an 89 in the first round and only missed the cut of the top 20 scores by five strokes.

    “It’s hard to come back from some of those bad swings, but the main thing was that I really, really had a lot of fun,” Cox said.

The Bulldogs got on the board first when Josh Armstrong found Elliot Goodwin, who scored off a free kick to give the Bulldogs at 1-0 lead just six minutes into the game.

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Serenity Now

    When Halie Browning moved from Bardstown to the ‘Burg in third grade, she noticed right away how calm Washington County was in comparison to where she was.

    “We lived in a pretty busy part of Bardstown, so when we moved out to the country, it was so peaceful and quiet,” Browning said. “I just liked that a lot right away.”

    Another part of small-town living she really enjoyed was how close-knit everyone was. In fact, Browning started out playing volleyball based on the recommendations of the friends she made in Washington County.

    Coming off of a bye week, the Washington County Commander football team (1-4, 1-2) will face off this Friday against the Shawnee Golden Eagles (4-3, 1-3).

    Last year’s 42-39 win over Shawnee proved to be a game to remember for WC, with then-senior Ty’Lyn Byas rushing for a school-record 361 yards on 41 carries and scoring the game-winning touchdown with just 36 seconds left on the clock.

    With the No. 2 seed up for grabs in the 19th District Tournament last week, the Washington County Commanderette volleyball team (18-8, 4-4) was unable to hold off the Nelson County Cardinals (27-4, 6-2) in its last district game of the regular season.

    The Commanderettes dropped the first two sets 25-15 and 25-20 before storming back in the third with a 25-23 victory before dropping the final game by a score of 25-23.

  • Emily Cox heads to state

    In a season spent adjusting to a new swing, Washington County sophomore golfer Emily Cox has had what she calls “a little bit of a setback year,” but her No. 1 goal from the start has been to make the state tournament this season.

    And her mission was accomplished after carding an 89 last week at the girls’ regional tournament.

    That finish was good enough for the final qualifying spot, even though she acknowledged it wasn’t her “best day.”
