    There had to be a big sigh of relief from Washington County head girls basketball coach Bernard Smalley Friday night after the Commanderettes defeated the Bethlehem Banshees 36-30 in Bardstown to improve their district record to 2-1.

    Special to the Sun

    The Washington County sixth grade basketball team started league play in Nelson County in impressive fashion with victories over Boston and LaRue County.
