    The St. Dominic Knights traveled to Bardstown Saturday afternoon to face off against Elizabethtown. It was a tough game for the Knights as E-Town got off to an 8-0 lead to finish the first quarter and St. D was down 21-2 at the half.

    The E-Town offense was too much for the Knights as they hit several three-pointers and pulled away in the third quarter to take a 35-8 lead in the final six minutes.

    If Washington County head basketball coach Paul Bodenhamer had a Commander victory on his Christmas wish list, he had to wait an extra day before Santa delivered. WC entered tourney play on Dec. 26 with an 0-6 record and a Commander win was surely on more than one wish list during the holidays.

    It seems Bodenhamer and the boys were good during the year as they won two out of four during the KFC/Taco Bell Holiday Classic at Marion County High School over the weekend.

    From reliever to starter

    As we close the book on 2008, it's a good time to look back at all that has happened in Washington County sports during the past 366 days. But since I have only been here at The Springfield Sun for the past 205 days, my reflections will be somewhat limited.

    Wii will rock you

    I bought my girlfriend Cindy a Nintendo Wii for Christmas along with the Wii Fit add-on package. Shhh, don't tell her, it's a surprise! She really wanted to get these, so I figured it would be a great excuse to buy a video game system. Afterall, I can justify it by saying it's meant to get us in better shape.

    On Nov. 19, the St. Catharine College Patriots let what would have been their first victory of the year slip away when a missed dunk at the buzzer force the game into overtime where they lost at Alice Lloyd 80-76.

    One month later, however, now stocked with two point guards who just became eligible, J.T. Burton’s bunch avenged that loss by shooting down the same Alice Lloyd Eagles 87-68 in Lourdes Hall.

    It’s been nearly three seasons since Washington County native Brittany Edelen played for the Commanderettes, finishing her prep career as WC’s all-time leading scorer with 2,559 points. Now in her third year with the Kentucky Wildcats womens basketball team, Edelen is getting more playing time on the hardwood, due in part to some injuries.
