  • Commanders 17-13 on season

    The Washington County Commanders (17-13, 7-1) picked up their 17th win of the season last week, defeating John Hardin on Friday by a score of 7-2. WC was unable to build off this success, though, losing to Adair County 7-0 the next day before falling 5-4 to the Danville Admirals (19-12) just before press time Monday night.

  • Drury’s season ends at region...

    Washington County tennis player Chase Drury was just one win away from qualifying for the state tournament, but after losing last Wednesday, his season came to a close in the 5th Region Tournament when he lost 6-1, 6-0 to Taylor County’s Liam Schaaders, who would go on to win the region tournament.

    While the loss was disappointing, head coach Beth Gooch thinks it will only motivate him to make the state tournament next season.

  • Bass fishing team competes at...

    It was almost like a passing of the torch.

    At least that was the best way that Washington County’s bass fishing head coach Tim Messer could describe it.

    This past weekend, there were four WC athletes who participated in the 2016 KHSAA State Bass Fishing Championship on Kentucky Lake — seniors Trevor Sagrecy and Michael Shelton in one boat and sophomore Nathaniel Messer and freshman Mason Hamilton in another.

  • Drury competes in region tourney

    That’s how Washington County tennis player Chase Drury began his run in the 5th Region Tournament at Freeman Lake Park in Elizabethtown.

    Drury opened up tournament play against Elizabethtown’s Ameer Haider, who received the No. 5 overall seed for boys’ singles play.

    Head coach Beth Gooch said that Drury, who she believed had been “underestimated” by not receiving a seed to begin the tournament, started with a passion she hadn’t seen in him before and that he never let up throughout the match.

  • Commanderettes continue winning...

    The Washington County Commanderettes (14-9, 6-2) have been on a roll since returning from spring break in early April, and they picked up two more wins last week to maintain their hot streak.

    After defeating Thomas Nelson 8-2 on Tuesday and Danville 15-0 on Friday, the Commanderettes improved to 8-2 since playing in the Fort Walton Beach Bash.

  • WC bass fishing pair signs with...

    Coming on the heels of their region tournament win, Washington County bass fishing team members Michael Shelton and Trevor Sagrecy accomplished something else they had been aspiring to: getting a college bass fishing scholarship.

    The two signed with Campbellsville University last week, becoming the first from WC’s bass fishing team to earn a college scholarship in the program’s four-year existence.

  • WC softball now 12-9

    The Washington County Commanderettes (12-9, 5-2) split their two games last week, defeating Nelson County 14-3 in five innings and falling to Spencer County 13-5. WC was scheduled to play Marion County on Monday, but the game was cancelled due to inclement weather.

  • WC baseball snaps streak

    The Washington County Commanders (14-11, 6-1) broke out of their six-game losing streak in a big way last week, notching two district wins against Bardstown and Bethlehem. The Commanders defeated Bardstown 8-2 last Tuesday night before picking up a come-from-behind 6-5 victory against Bethlehem. 

  • WC bass fishing team wins region

    It turned out to be a waiting game.

    Washington County’s Michael Shelton and Trevor Sagrecy were one of the first 10 boats to weigh in, but it wasn’t until around the 30th boat checked the scales and the pair still held the top weigh-in that they realized they had a real chance to win the 2nd Region Bass Fishing Tournament.

    But all they could do was wait.

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Evan Mattingly

    Evan Mattingly was 3 years old when he joined his first T-ball team. His father, Jim, was “a big baseball fan,” and with Evan’s older brother, Luke, set to play on their father’s team, Evan naturally wanted to join.

    And from that point on, Evan was hooked on baseball.

    “My dad got me into it, and I’ve loved it ever since,” he said.
