  • 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.

  • Commander football 2016: By the numbers

    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.
