  • All-stars take losses in opening...

    The Washington County 9-10 and 11-12 All-Star softball teams took deep wounds in their opening games of the district tourney hosted at Graham Memorial Park in Lebanon on Sunday.

    Both teams were run-ruled and shut down for much of their games.

    The 9-10 team saw its opponent, Marion County, come out in the second inning with a fire in its belly. Marion County would score eight runs, but would not hold Washington County completely scoreless. WC answered with two runs, though Marion would seal the deal with a 9-run third inning.

  • Cochrans place third

    They’re at it again!

    Washington County brothers Lynn and Nathan Cochran have hit the water, cast out their lines and reeled in another top spot in a big time fishing tournament in Kentucky.

    And this time, their catch is worth an ice cold $1,200.

    According to Lynn, the pair won their cash by reeling in 9.65 pounds of fish in the Crappie USA Super Event, which was hosted at Green River Lake on June 5 and 6.  

    “You only weigh seven fish a day,” Lynn said in a phone interview with The Sun last week.

  • Coulter plays in East-West All-...

    Trae Coulter is not your average teenager. In his 17 years on this earth, he’s notched nearly 15 years of baseball experience under his belt. That’s because he’s been playing the game since he was two or three years old and has played for the Commanders since he was in the seventh grade.

    And, recently, he played in the Junior East-West All-Star games, which were hosted at Pleasure Ridge Park  High School in Louisville last week.

  • Softball season comes to a close

    The Washington County Commanderettes’ season came to a close last week when they fell in the opening round of the regional tournament on May 25. They fell 11-1 in six innings to the Green County Dragons (21-16) at North Hardin.

    The Commanderettes were coming of an 8-1 loss to the Bethlehem Banshees in the 19th District championship.

    Statistics and a box score for their final game were not available at press time.

  • Commanders’ season ends at...

    After winning their first regional tournament game in four years, the Washington County Commanders’ season came to an end when the Central Hardin Bruins shut them out 7-0 in seven innings last week.

    The defeat ended the Commanders’ 22-11 run this year.

    “I’m proud of my guys,” Commanders head coach Adam Blair said. “They achieved so much this year, we won double the games we did last year.”

  • Hamilton wins gold

     A Washington County teenager was invited to the 2015 Junior Olympic Championships earlier this month in Colorado and he returned home with gold and silver medals after taking part in three events.

    Mason Hamilton, 13, qualified for the competition on Dec. 13 and made his way to Colorado Springs from April 28 to May 6 for the 14-and-under (J3 division) championships in air rifle, small-bore and 3x40 small-bore.

  • Commanderettes drop district...

    They fought until the very end, and even when it they were defeated, they never let their heads down.

    The Washington County Commanderettes lost their chance to earn the accolade of being the 19th District champions when they fell to the Bethlehem Banshees 8-1 on May 18. It was the third time the Commanderettes have been defeated by the Banshees this season, falling to them previously 19-6 and 9-3.

    “Just because we didn’t win doesn’t mean we can’t play,” Commanderettes head coach Christy Baker said after the game.
