  • Commanders beat Marion County 9-0

    It was a great start to the season for the Washington County Commander baseball team last week. In fact, it was almost a perfect one.

  • WC tennis plans to build on its...

    Youth.

    This year’s Washington County Commander tennis team has an abundance of it, and first-year head coach Beth Gooch sees the amount of young players on the team as a solid building block for the future of the program.

  • Commanders look to repeat as...

    After a team that wins a championship loses seven seniors to graduation, the natural inclination is that there will be some drop off the next season.

    But this year’s Washington County Commander baseball team, which took home a 19th District championship and earned a trip to the semifinals of the 5th Region Tournament last season, has a chance to shatter this type of conventional thinking.

  • Commanderettes show great...

    When Lena Bramblett took over as head coach of the Washington County girls’ basketball team last year, she was taking over a team that was coming off a two-win season.

    Bramblett, who had been with St. Catharine College the previous 15 years, wasn’t sure what to expect with her new group of players.

    But after finishing up her first season at the helm, Bramblett was amazed at how well her team bought into her coaching philosophy.

  • WC fights hard, falls late

    For two-and-a-half quarters, the Washington County Commanders looked like a team poised to give the Bardstown Tigers their first district loss in more than three seasons.

    But a 19-0 run by the Tigers to end the third quarter put the game away for good in their 79-51 win over Washington County Thursday night.

  • SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Taylor Eldridge

    Going into her senior season at Washington County High School, Taylor Eldridge wasn’t sure what to expect. Eldridge had played basketball for the Commanderettes since she was in middle school, but a new coaching staff meant that, if she did play, Eldridge would be playing for her third head coach in three years.

    After reluctantly deciding to give basketball another chance, it didn’t take long for her to figure out she had made the right choice.

  • Commanderettes fall in first...

    It was a week of finales for the Washington County Commanderettes (7-23, 0-9). Last week, the Commanderettes honored their four seniors — Lexi Thompson, Daisha Edelen, Taylor Eldridge and Bree Crain — Tuesday night after a 61-18 win over the Fort Knox Eagles (3-26) in the team’s final regular-season game of the season, avenging a 42-34 loss to the Hart County Raiders (7-13) the night before.

  • WC boys get district tourney win

    Survive and advance.

    That’s exactly what the Washington County Commanders (12-19, 3-6)  did after picking up a 53-31 win over the Thomas Nelson Generals (1-30, 0-9) in the first round of the 19th District Tournament on Monday night.

    The victory came on the heels of a three-game losing streak for WC, with a 60-45 loss to the Metcalfe County Hornets (3-23), a 56-49 defeat at the hands of the Fort Knox Eagles (10-19) and a 57-52 loss to the Hart County Raiders (11-15).

  • WC falls to Taylor County,...

    The Washington County Commanderettes (6-21, 0-8) faced off against the Campbellsville Eagles (7-20) and Taylor County Cardinals (12-15) last week but fell short in both matchups, losing 51-47 to Campbellsville and 35-20 to Taylor County.

    The Commanderettes started off strong against the Eagles on Thursday night, and in the second quarter, they had even taken a 21-14 lead on a 3-pointer by senior Daisha Edelen.

  • Commanders win three straight

    The Washington County Commanders (11-16, 2-6) accomplished something last week they hadn’t done in nine years: win three consecutive games. The winning streak started with a 76-34 blowout win of the Whitefield Academy Wildcats (2-24). The Commanders then put together an impressive 54-46 win against the Campbellsville Eagles (10-15) that included a second-half comeback by WC, and to finish off the week, the Commanders went on the road and picked up a 67-61 win against the Dayton Greendevils (12-14).
