    As the Washington County tennis team prepared for the 2009 season, coach Steve Schubart knew something was going to be different this year. The team has added what Schubart calls his secret weapons, the brother combo of Cyrus and Darius Moslemi.

    “Cyrus is ranked third in Kentucky and should place high in the regionals and perhaps go to the state tournament,” said Schubart. “Darius is a fifth-grader at North Washington Elementary School.”

  • Rough week for Commanders

    One week you’re hot, the next week you’re not. If anyone ever had doubts that baseball is a game of streaks, they haven’t followed the Washington County Commanders the past couple of weeks.

    After starting off the season with three consecutive wins, the Commanders have dropped four straight with losses last week against Russell County, Boyle County, Bethlehem and Marion County.

  • Commanders start strong

    The Washington County Commanders opened up the 2009 baseball season early last week by winning their first three games, including a 12-4 victory over Fort Knox March 24 to open home play. The early impression is that WC has some pop in their bats and some speed on the bases. Things looked a little shaky on the defensive side, but it’s nothing that can’t be solved by practice and communication.


    Billy Gillispie a Commander? That could be a possibility as Washington County High School Athletic Director Glen Goatley considers his college friend and former UK basketball coach as a candidate to fill the boys head coach spot vacated by Paul Bodenhamer.

    WCHS Principal Leon Smith agreed with Goatley’s decision and thinks the basketball program at WC could use a spark of excitement.

    “We were just starting to search for a coach, and one falls almost right into our lap,” said Smith.
