    After losing to Nelson County 64-32 last Tuesday night, the Commanderettes responded with the program’s first back-to-back wins since February 2014, when the team defeated Taylor County 50-48 before knocking off Campbellsville 54-44 two days later. The Commanderettes beat Whitefield Academy 50-25 on Thursday night before defeating Model 38-33 on Saturday.

    On Saturday night, the Commanderettes fell to the Marion County Knights (6-6) by a score of 78-48. 

    Despite the final score, though, head coach Lena Bramblett said her team, which was without starter Ashley Yates, played one of its “better-played games.”

  • WC takes down rival Marion County

    The Washington County Commanders (4-9, 1-4) went 1-2 last week in games against Marion County, Bethlehem and Bardstown, but the team’s lone victory was a big one for the Commanders: a win over Marion County, a bitter rival they hadn’t defeated in 14 previous tries.

    On the first day of the event, the Commanderettes fell to Garrard County by a score of 52-17 in a game where WC played out of sync, according to head coach Lena Bramblett.

  • Commanders pick up third win

    The Washington County Commanders (3-7, 1-2) only played one game last week, but they made it count, defeating the St. Patrick Saints (5-8) by a score of 56-51.

    The Commanders jumped out to a quick lead behind nine points from junior DT Yocum, and they looked to be well on their way to an easy victory as they took a 29-22 lead into halftime.

    But St. Patrick refused to go away.

  • Senior spotlight: Daisha Edelen

    When Daisha Edelen is on the basketball court, she is always looking to make an impact on defense.

    It’s not that she doesn’t like offense, but for her, she has the most fun when she’s creating offense through her defense.

    “I like defense better than offense,” she said. “I like getting deflections and going down to the other side and getting the ball to a teammate for an assist.”

  • Commanders play six games in...

    Six games in eight days, all on the road.

    That’s the gauntlet the Washington County Commanders (2-7, 1-2) have run in the past week, and while the Commanders only went 1-5 in that time, WC head coach Bernard Smalley said he saw several positives in his team’s play during the grueling stretch.

  • WC beats Campbellsville on road...

    Only nine games into the season under first-year head coach Lena Bramblett, the Washington County Commanderettes (2-7, 0-3) have already matched their win total from last year. 

    WC completed this mark during its most recent run of games before Christmas, where the Commanderettes played five games in just seven days, going 1-4 during the challenging stretch.

  • Commanderettes lose to Generals

     What jumped out to Washington County head coach Lena Bramblett as she prepared for the Thomas Nelson Generals (5-2, 1-0) and their high-scoring offense was how they used their distinct size advantage to score in the post.

    So going into Friday’s game against the Generals, she instructed her players to “dare them to shoot it from the outside.”
