  • Ladies take two tough district...

    A tough season continued down that path for the Washington County Commanderettes last week as they hosted a pair of district opponents.

    Nelson County visited the Commanderettes last Tuesday, handing the ladies a 69-23 loss.

    Madison Snellen led Washington County with eight points, followed by Lucky Burton with five and Kailey Thompson with four.

    Friday night brought the Bethlehem Banshees to visit. Although the Commanderettes got a better offensive output, the result was a 59-41 loss.

  • Drama in district play

    If you attended the Washington County Commanders’ two district games last week against Nelson County and Bethlehem, it’s understandable that your fingernails might be chewed down a bit. Coach Bernard Smalley and his boys played a pair of nailbiters, coming out on the short end in both.

    Tuesday night, Nelson County visited the WCHS gym, and the game was nip and tuck from the opening tip.

    The teams played to a 14-14 tie after the first period, with all of Washington County’s points coming from senior guard DT Yocum.

    Lena Bramblett and her Washington County Commanderettes must feel like they have been riding a roller coaster into the 2016-17 basketball season. The team has seen its share of ups and downs after winning two games last week, then most recently dropping three straight.

    Garrard County came to town last Tuesday, Dec. 6, and handed the ladies a 64-28 loss in their home opener. The Lady Lions jumped out to a quick 16-0 lead after the first quarter and never looked back.

  • WC boys off to hot start

    Baby, it’s cold outside, but things are heating up for the Washington County Commanders.

    The boys’ basketball team has started the season with a 4-1 record, which is the best start the team has had since the 2004-05 campaign.

    Did head coach Bernard Smalley see that as a possibility coming into the season?

  • Commanderettes notch first wins...

The victories came after the Commanderettes were beat 64-25 by the Taylor County Lady Cardinals (3-0) in a rough rouser on Dec. 2.

    According to Commanderette Head Coach Lena Bramblett, the win was a big morale booster for the young team. 

  • Commanders defeat Burgin, fall...

    The Washington County Commanders took their second win of the season Monday night when they defeated the Burgin Bulldogs (0-4) 88-54. The win came after they fell to the Adair County Indians 92-70 in their second official game of the season on Dec. 3. The Indians (3-0) had come off two fresh wins where they defeated the Green County Dragons (0-2) in a decisive 94-75 win and the Cumberland County Panthers (1-2) 59-53.

    According to Commander Head Coach Bernard Smalley, the Commanders didn’t come out ready to play.

  • Commanders top Richmond Model

    The Washington County Commanders tipped off the regular season Monday night with a home game against Richmond Model.

    “You’ve got to be happy getting a “W” first game of the year,” Head Coach Bernard Smalley said.

    Smalley’s team jumped out to an early lead over the Patriots and were on top 16-15 after the first quarter. 

    The Commanders built on their lead and were up 36-33 at halftime.

    When the dust settled, Washington County came away with a 79-70 victory.

  • Commander football 2016: By the...

    The 2016 football season got off to a rocky start for the Washington County Commanders. The team opened with five straight losses after suffering some injuries to key players.

    In week six, the Commanders found their groove, hosting Trimble County, and picked up a 41-0 win. They followed that up with a 56-20 thumping of district foe Shawnee to make their mark 2-5.

    From that point, with three games to play in the regular season, things started to look uphill again as state powers DeSales and Christian Academy of Louisville stood in front of the Commanders.

  • Cal ends Commanders’ football...

    Washington County head football coach Eric Sagrecy said last week that if there was a better team out there than Christian Academy of Louisville, he would hate to have to play them.

    Sagrecy’s Commanders (3-9) got a full dose of exactly what he was talking about in Friday’s second-round playoff game on CAL’s home field in Louisville, and it ended in a 42-0 season-ending loss for Washington County.
