  • WC volleyball defeats Thomas...

    With only five games remaining in the Washington County Commanderette volleyball team’s (18-6, 4-3) season, head coach Anne Mudd has been impressed overall with what she’s seen out of her players this year.

    She was especially pleased with how her team played last week against district opponent Thomas Nelson (2-21, 0-7). The Commanderettes made quick work of the Generals, finishing them off in straight sets, 25-13, 25-16, 25-15.

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Shake it off

    Whenever Katlyn Seger makes a bad pass or hits a ball out, she always makes it a point to move on to the next play because “five minutes from now, it’s not going to matter … you just have to focus on the next play.”

    It’s that ability to shrug off her mistakes that the Washington County Commanderette senior says is her biggest strength as a volleyball player.

  • WC football notches its first...

    In the days leading up to the Washington County Commanders’ (1-4, 1-2) Friday night showdown with the Thomas Nelson Generals (3-3, 0-2) last week, WC head coach Eric

    Sagrecy had a message for his team: keep working hard.

    The Commanders were off to an 0-4 start but had also played four “awfully good” teams, some of the toughest competition in the state, in fact. But Sagrecy challenged his team to “keep their heads down, keep working and keep making strides as a football team.”

  • Commanders 0-4 during tough...

    The Washington County Commander football team (0-4, 0-2) was defeated 56-7 by the Christian Academy of Louisville Centurions (5-0, 2-0) this past Friday night. In doing so, WC finished off one of the toughest four-game schedules in the state, facing four teams that are a combined 18-2 this season and ranked in the top five of their respective classes.

  • WC volleyball plays in All-A...

    Going into the All-A State Classic last weekend, the main goal for the Washington County Commanderette volleyball team was to make it into the winners bracket with a top-two finish in pool play. A third- or fourth-place finish would mean a trip to the consolation bracket and no chance to compete for the All-A state championship.

  • Springfield native is state...

    Julie Thompson went to back-to-back state tournaments as a basketball player at Washington County High School, but it wasn’t until this year that she was able to capture her first state championship.

    This time around, though, she wasn’t playing basketball; she was pitching horseshoes.

    Thompson, who now lives in Bardstown, was 17 when she first picked up the sport in 2007 after she went with her boyfriend to a couple of the state horseshoe pitching tournaments.

  • WC football falls to 0-3

    It may have been their third straight game against a team ranked in the top five of its class, but Washington County Commander head football coach Eric Sagrecy was pleased with his team’s effort throughout its 47-10 loss to reigning Class 2A state champion DeSales (4-0, 1-0) last week.

  • WC just keeps on winning

    After winning its first 12 games of the season, the Washington County Commanderette volleyball team(14-2, 2-2) have dropped two of the squad’s last four games.

    But it’s how WC has responded after each loss that has impressed assistant coach Casey Mudd the most. The team went 6-7 in games following a loss, but a win this past Monday against the Anderson County Bearcats (8-5) improved their record in that department to 2-0 on the season.

  • St. Catharine College golf...

  • Emily Cox goes to All-A State

    This past weekend, Washington County sophomore golfer Emily Cox played in her fifth straight All-A State Classic.

    She placed in the top 40 after carding a 102 at Eagle’s Nest Country Club in Somerset.

    In her past two All-A State Classics, Cox shot an 84 at each event, even clinching a spot in the top 10 last year.

    This year’s top performer — Olivia Cason of Owensboro Catholic High School — carded a 74 on the evening.

    The event featured 77 players from All-A-eligible high schools from around the state.
