• Girls bounce back with district win

    The Commanderettes notched a 20-point win over district opponent Nelson County last Tuesday night, the team’s first win of the new year.

    A young Lady Cards’ roster was completely outmatched early on by Washington County, as the first quarter ended with the Commanderettes leading 19-3.

  • A perfect start to the year

    Washington County extended their winning streak to four last week after picking up wins over Nelson County and Model.

    Last Tuesday night the Commanders traveled to Nelson County for their second meeting with the Cardinals this season. Nelson County was looking for redemption after a 61-39 Washington County rout in the first matchup.

  • Winless weekend for Commanderettes

    There has been no respite for the Washington County Commanderettes at the start of 2019. The new year began with the team losing to Bardstown. Since then, the results have yet to improve. Friday night’s loss to the Bethlehem Banshees was followed up by another one-sided matchup against the Lady Knights of Marion County.

  • Back-to-back wins for boys team

    It’s early in the year, but the hottest ticket of 2019 may have already been sold. Saturday night’s contest between Washington County and Marion County provided all the nail-biting, fist-clenching, stomach-churning excitement you could ask for in a basketball game that fully lived up to its “Border War” moniker. A tense 32 minutes of play came to an end with the Commanders on top, despite a last-second heave from Marion County that could have tipped the scales the other way.

  • District woes for Commanderettes

    A trio of losses over the last week sends the Commanderettes into the weekend desperate to rebound.

    Last Tuesday’s 57-53 loss against Nelson County came despite the best efforts from Washington County’s squad. The Lady Cards led for the first half of the game, but a good adjustment from the Commanderettes coaching staff shut down the Nelson County offense coming out of halftime. Brylie Linton and Kyona Hamilton were poised for big nights after scoring 12 points apiece for the Lady Cards in the first half.

  • Winning streak ends at Bardstown

    After opening the season with back-to-back losses, the Washington County Commanders have done their best to recover. Monday night’s 61-58 loss to Bardstown ended a four-game winning streak that was started at the beginning of the month.

  • Commanderettes slip up over weekend

    Washington County’s girls’ basketball team came up short twice over the weekend during losses to Thomas Nelson and Berea.

    Friday night’s game at Thomas Nelson started off well enough for head coach Lena Bramblett’s team, but things spiraled away quickly.

  • Commanders win district opener

    It was a strong statement from the Commanders as they defeated 19th district foe Thomas Nelson 66-50 Friday night.

  • Hamilton signs with UK Rifle team

    Washington County High School senior Mason Hamilton made his decision official when he signed to join the University of Kentucky Rifle team for the 2019-2020 season.
    “I went to Murray State University and University of Kentucky. Both programs were virtually the same. It was a hard decision, but I feel like I made the one that was best for me,” he said.

  • Commanderettes looking to improve on last year

    Speed is the key word for the Commanderettes this season, as head coach Lena Bramblett says the team will be looking to make the most out of a smaller, but athletic, squad.
    “We’re going to be a small team, but we’re going to be a scrappy team.”

    While changes in the roster have taken some height away from the Washington County side, there’s still plenty of experienced players for Bramblett to put on the court. There are nine upperclassmen, and most have played on the high school team for at least four years.
