  • Yates qualifies for All ‘A’ State

    After posting the lowest overall score at the 12th Region All “A” Classic last week, Drew Yates is headed to the state tournament.

    The Washington County High School sophomore boys’ golfer will be the first male competitor to compete at the All “A” state level since WC’s boys’ team qualified as a whole in 2011.

  • Five seniors lead the way for WC...

    With no seniors on last year’s Washington County High School volleyball team, this year’s squad will see the return of many familiar faces.

    For new head coach John Rogers, who was promoted earlier this year from his assistant coach position, returning a team full of varsity-tested players should prove beneficial in the team’s quest for its second-ever district tournament title.

  • WC alums excelling in college...

    The speed of the game.

    That’s what first stuck out to Ty’Lyn Byas, Sean Lewis and Adam Smith as the biggest different between high school football and college football.

    But after the initial adjustment period, it’s something that all three former Commanders have adjusted to on their way to making an impact on their respective college teams.

  • Coach-pitch Cardinals finish...

    The ball just continued bouncing the right way, again and again.

    Or at least that’s how it seemed to head coach Scotty Roution, as his coach-pitch Cardinals team continued winning on its way to a 12-0 season that included “several” come-from-behind victories.

  • Baker selected for national all-...

    Next week, Beau Baker will have the chance to participate in something that not many 10-year-olds can claim to have done: play for a national all-star team.

    This opportunity came about for Beau last week while playing in the Baseball Youth National Showcase in Westfield, Indiana, as part of his travel team, the Danville-based Morse Mustangs.

  • WC golf prepares for upcoming...

    The Washington County boys’ golf team will see many returning players from last year’s squad, and head coach Bobby Bartholomai is excited about what that could mean for this season.

    This year’s roster will feature eight players for the boys’ team, including five returning players from last year’s team in seniors Jim Cecconi and John Mann, junior Landon Taylor and sophomores Drew Yates and Ben Taylor.

  • Lebanon evens President's...

    The Lebanon Country Club bested Springfield’s Lincoln Homestead Country Club in the 18th annual President’s Cup this past weekend, avenging last year’s defeat.

    The President’s Cup is a local golf tournament that pits the two country clubs against each other in a four-event, two-day clash that has become an annual tradition.

  • Taking Aim

    Fighting through the searing summer heat and humidity, one Washington County girl has been making a name for herself in a male-dominated sport – trap shooting.

    Hannah Simpson, 17, begins her practice by putting on a vest and stuffing its pockets with boxes of shotgun shells. She casually puts on her ear and eye protection – specially designed to help see the target for the day’s weather – and grabs her gun, a Beretta 692 Xtrap.

  • Goode preparing for career in...

     There’s more to grass than what’s on the surface.

  • 11-12-year-old All-Stars pick up...

    Washington County’s 11-12-year-old all-stars entered the second half of District 5 Little League Tournament play this past week, and after a rough start, it looked like things would continue down that path for the local all-stars.

    Tuesday brought a matchup with a tough Boyle County team, and Washington County coach Jacob Howard said his squad had a tough day at the plate.
