  • Region All-A golf held at...

    Washington County golf hosted the 5th Region All-Atournament at Lincoln Homestead last week, with the Commanders prevailing over Bethlehem in a scorecard playoff.

    The Commanderettes had a good showing as well, with senior Amanda Cox and freshman Emily Cox sharing medalist honors. Full results were unavailable at press time.

    Both teams traveled to Nelson County earlier in the week, with the boys easily defeating the Cardinals 188-219 on Thursday.

  • SCC volleyball gets ready for...

    Just two short years ago, the St. Catharine Patriots’ volleyball team won a school-high 25 games with a team full of talented freshman and only two upperclassmen. However, in 2012 the Patriots took a step back, by finishing 12-19 overall and just 5-10 in the Mid-South Conference. For the 2013 season the Patriots look to bounce back under the leadership of rookie coach Jason McDannold.

    McDannold, a Versailles native, takes over a Patriot squad that barely survived disaster last season after losing a coach and adapting to the system of interim coach John Rogers.

    Before the inaugural Alumni Bowl is played Saturday at Washington County High School, a dinner at Mordecai’s Restaurant will be held Friday night to kick off the 2013 football season. While the guest speakers at the dinner will be former coaches, even those former Commander leaders will tell you the gridiron history is all about the players.

  • Bystrek named athletic director...

    It’s tough for anyone to predict where their career will take them throughout their life. Sometimes you take a position that looks like a temporary stop, but leads to a long career serving a community that has become as much a part of you, as you have of it.

    That’s exactly what happened with new St. Catharine College Athletic Director Tom Bystrek, who has worked in the Washington County community since taking over the Washington County High School baseball head coaching position in 1974.

  • Commanders bring experience to...

    Washington County football enters 2013 confident that the areas that gave them problems during last year’s 2-9 campaign are a thing of the past.

    Entering last season, Washington County Head Coach Eric Sagrecy knew his entirely new offensive line would suffer some growing pains. However, ahead of this week’s season opener, that same O-line could be one of the Commanders’ most improved areas.

  • WCHS golf tees season off

    The Washington County boys’ and girls’ golf teams got the 2013 season started last week, and after two team competitions, the Commanders have come away with a pair of wins.

    The season opener was last Monday at Woodlawn against Bardstown High School, where the WC boys came away with a 174-189 win over the Tigers. Senior Thomas Pettus led the way for the Commanders with a low-score of 37.

    The inaugural Alumni Bowl will kick off Saturday, Aug. 24 at Washington County High School. The doubleheader will include two high school games starting at 5:30 p.m. While the action on the field is the main attraction, the bowl weekend will allow former coaches and players to reflect on the glory days of Commander football.

  • Veteran Commanderettes key to...

    Having already made great strides over the past two seasons under Head Coach Anne Mudd, the Washington County High School volleyball team is looking to take another leap forward in 2013.

    After posting a 7-23 record in 2010, the Commanderettes have managed 14-14 and 15-17 seasons since, and now they have their sites set on their first winning season since 2007. With plenty of varsity experience returning amongst six seniors and eight juniors, it’s no wonder Washington County has thoughts of a 19th District title.
