  • Commanders top Richmond Model

    The Washington County Commanders tipped off the regular season Monday night with a home game against Richmond Model.

    “You’ve got to be happy getting a “W” first game of the year,” Head Coach Bernard Smalley said.

    Smalley’s team jumped out to an early lead over the Patriots and were on top 16-15 after the first quarter. 

    The Commanders built on their lead and were up 36-33 at halftime.

    When the dust settled, Washington County came away with a 79-70 victory.

  • Commander football 2016: By the...

    The 2016 football season got off to a rocky start for the Washington County Commanders. The team opened with five straight losses after suffering some injuries to key players.

    In week six, the Commanders found their groove, hosting Trimble County, and picked up a 41-0 win. They followed that up with a 56-20 thumping of district foe Shawnee to make their mark 2-5.

    From that point, with three games to play in the regular season, things started to look uphill again as state powers DeSales and Christian Academy of Louisville stood in front of the Commanders.

  • Cal ends Commanders’ football...

    Washington County head football coach Eric Sagrecy said last week that if there was a better team out there than Christian Academy of Louisville, he would hate to have to play them.

    Sagrecy’s Commanders (3-9) got a full dose of exactly what he was talking about in Friday’s second-round playoff game on CAL’s home field in Louisville, and it ended in a 42-0 season-ending loss for Washington County.

  • Commanderettes’ season ends with...

    Beating a team three times in a row is not an easy task, and the Washington County Commanderette volleyball squad learned that lesson in the opening round of 19th District Tournament play.

    After having beaten Bardstown (23-10, 6-4) twice this season, both coming within the past calendar month, Washington County (19-13, 5-5) coach John Rogers knew his team would have to be up for a tough match.

  • Commanders shut out against...

    The Washington County Commanders travelled to play the DeSales Colts this past Friday night, but WC was unable to come out with a win against a perennial Class 2A state championship contender, losing 55-0.

    Despite the final outcome, WC head coach Eric Sagrecy said he was pleased with the effort the Commanders (2-6, 1-1) consistently gave throughout the contest and especially in the first half.

    Washington County head volleyball coach John Rogers wanted to see his team enter district tournament play with plenty of momentum, and with a three-match winning streak to end the regular season, that’s exactly what he got. After losing three consecutive matches, the Commanderettes (19-13, 5-3) bounced back strong in their last three, defeating Anderson County, Franklin County and Bardstown.

    The Washington County Commanderettes (16-13, 4-3) traveled to Central Hardin High School last week to take on the Bruins, but they came up short against one of the perennial contenders in the 5th Region, losing in three straight sets (25-13, 25-14, 25-13).

  • Commanders get second straight...

    The Washington County Commanders (2-5, 1-0) lost their first five games of the season, but two blowout victories in a row have helped the team get its season back on track.

    WC built off its first victory of the season the week before — a 41-0 shutout of Trimble County — with a 56-20 district win over the Shawnee Golden Eagles (0-6, 0-1) this past Friday night.

    The tone of the game was set early on in the first quarter, when defensive back Trey Cheatham intercepted a Shawnee pass to give the Commanders possession.

  • Commanderettes fall to Green Co...

    The Washington County Commanderettes played in two of their closest matches of the season last week but came up short in both contests, losing to Green County in five sets on Thursday and to West Jessamine in four sets on Tuesday.

    The Commanderettes (16-12, 4-3) started last week’s slate off with a matchup against the West Jessamine Colts (22-8), and despite only going four sets, none of the sets was decided by more than five points and only one was decided by more than three points.
