  • From Commander to Blue Raider

    “Tackle by Curtsinger,” the PA announcer’s voice rang throughout Blue Raider Stadium.

    It was Senior Day for 14 Lindsey Wilson College football players, and it didn’t take long for linebacker Kyle Curtsinger to make his first tackle in the final home game of his college career.

    But it wouldn’t be his last.

    He finished the game with a team-leading 11 tackles — four more than any other player — during a 55-27 rout of Cumberland University.

  • Bevin carries county

    The gubernatorial election — among several other elected statewide positions — was held last week, and if Washington County’s vote totals were any indication, locals are glad to see Republican Matt Bevin take his turn in office.

  • WC loses 43-9 in Class 2A...

    In each of the past four seasons, the Washington County Commanders saw their season end in Glasgow, and on Friday night, history repeated itself once again, as the Scotties took a 43-9 victory to move on to the second round of the Class 2A Playoffs.

    But unlike in years past, the Commanders (5-6, 1-2) held their ground and even had a chance to pull out the win for a majority of the contest.

  • Patriot wrestlers to honor...

    It was 87 years ago that a cease fire was called, ending World War I between the Allies and Germany. Originally called Armistice Day, the day is now celebrated as Veterans Day (Nov. 11) to honor all of those who have served in the United States Armed Forces.

    This year, the St. Catharine College wrestling team will do its part to recognizethese military heroes at the first home meet of the 2015-2016 season.

  • WCMS seventh-graders win NIT...

    If you had told Janey Doty before this season that her Washington County Middle School seventh-grade girls’ basketball team would be champions by the end of the year, she probably would not have believed you.

    So when they won the NIT championship last week, she knew it was a testament to how hard her team had worked all season.

    It wasn’t that Doty didn’t believe her team was talented at the start of the year; it was just that they were “all out of sync.”

  • Ring the bell

    Last year’s game against Marion County was mired in controversy for the Washington County

    Commanders, with WC losing on a last-second, goal-line stand that seemingly could have gone either way.

    But this year’s edition of the historically close rivalry was never in doubt, as the Commanders (5-5, 1-2) pulled out a 46-33 win over the Knights (0-10).

    It was only the second game in the series that was decided by more than one possession in the past 10 years and the first double-digit Commander win since a 16-6 victory in 2003.

  • Haydon a top-ranked cornhole...

    Philip Haydon doesn’t remember exactly when he started playing cornhole — “It was probably seven or eight years ago, when everyone started playing,” he said — but he does remember that he didn’t have a problem “putting the bag in the hole” from the very start.

    Haydon became hooked immediately, playing every night soon after he tried it for the first time.

  • NLCS MVP has ties to Washington...

     Daniel Murphy’s postgame press conference, which followed his New York Mets clinching a trip to the World Series and him being named the NLCS Most Valuable Player, had just wrapped up.

    And after several failed attempts by a multitude of reporters to get Murphy to compliment himself rather than his team, it was SportsCenter host’s Scott Van Pelt’s turn.

  • WC's young squad looks...

    A season full of transitions for the Washington County Commanderettes (15-17) ended last week with a loss to the Nelson County Cardinals (13-19) in the first round of the 19th District Tournament.

    Coming into this year, the Commanderettes lost five players to graduation from last season’s 21-10 team and had no seniors.

  • WC has no answer for CAL, loses...

    In what would be their second consecutive game against a team in the conversation as Class 2A’s top football team, the Washington County Commanders (4-5, 1-2) were unable to keep up with the vaunted offense of the Christian Academy-Louisville Centurions (7-2, 3-0) on Friday night, losing by a score of 56-8.

    The Centurions showed why they are considered a top Class 2A team from the very start, jumping out to a 21-0 lead early on in the game.
