  • WC track team ready to start a...

    According to head coach Eric  Sagrecy, one of the main goals for the Washington County Commander track and field team this season was to “get more kids involved.”

    In track and field, it can be hard for schools with smaller teams to be competitive at events because they aren’t able to participate in many of the disciplines.

  • WC strives for return trip to...

    When the Washington County Commanderette softball team reached the 5th Region Tournament last season, it was the first time the team had reached this milestone since 2011.

    And head coach Christy Baker believes that this was just the beginning.

    That trip to the region tournament made a big impact on the Commanderettes, according to Baker, and the team will continue to use last year’s performance as motivation for this season.

  • WC tennis plays first match of...

    The Washington County Commander tennis team opened its season last week when it took on the Bethlehem Eagles.

    The Commanders picked up its lone win in singles play as junior Chase Drury defeated Bethlehem’s Davis Downs by scores of 6-4 and 6-2 in two sets.

    In other boys’ action, WC senior Thomas Graves was unable to take down Hunter McCoy, losing 6-1 and 0-6.

  • Commanders beat Marion County 9-0

    It was a great start to the season for the Washington County Commander baseball team last week. In fact, it was almost a perfect one.

  • WC tennis plans to build on its...

    Youth.

    This year’s Washington County Commander tennis team has an abundance of it, and first-year head coach Beth Gooch sees the amount of young players on the team as a solid building block for the future of the program.

  • Commanders look to repeat as...

    After a team that wins a championship loses seven seniors to graduation, the natural inclination is that there will be some drop off the next season.

    But this year’s Washington County Commander baseball team, which took home a 19th District championship and earned a trip to the semifinals of the 5th Region Tournament last season, has a chance to shatter this type of conventional thinking.

  • Commanderettes show great...

    When Lena Bramblett took over as head coach of the Washington County girls’ basketball team last year, she was taking over a team that was coming off a two-win season.

    Bramblett, who had been with St. Catharine College the previous 15 years, wasn’t sure what to expect with her new group of players.

    But after finishing up her first season at the helm, Bramblett was amazed at how well her team bought into her coaching philosophy.

  • WC fights hard, falls late

    For two-and-a-half quarters, the Washington County Commanders looked like a team poised to give the Bardstown Tigers their first district loss in more than three seasons.

    But a 19-0 run by the Tigers to end the third quarter put the game away for good in their 79-51 win over Washington County Thursday night.

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Taylor Eldridge

    Going into her senior season at Washington County High School, Taylor Eldridge wasn’t sure what to expect. Eldridge had played basketball for the Commanderettes since she was in middle school, but a new coaching staff meant that, if she did play, Eldridge would be playing for her third head coach in three years.

    After reluctantly deciding to give basketball another chance, it didn’t take long for her to figure out she had made the right choice.

  • Commanderettes fall in first...

    It was a week of finales for the Washington County Commanderettes (7-23, 0-9). Last week, the Commanderettes honored their four seniors — Lexi Thompson, Daisha Edelen, Taylor Eldridge and Bree Crain — Tuesday night after a 61-18 win over the Fort Knox Eagles (3-26) in the team’s final regular-season game of the season, avenging a 42-34 loss to the Hart County Raiders (7-13) the night before.
