  • 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.

  • Girls bounce back with district...

    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.

  • 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.

  • Winless weekend for...

    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.

  • 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...

    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.

  • Slow start for Commanderettes

    Two tough losses for the Commanderettes got their season off to a rocky start, but a decisive win Monday night has them trending back in the right direction.

    The team’s opening game was played Tuesday night against Taylor County. After narrowly winning in last season’s contest, the Lady Cardinals dominated the first half of this year’s match, keeping the Commanderettes scoreless for long stretches going into halftime. Washington County did its best to recover in the second half, with Madison Snellen leading the way with 10 points.

  • Opening week hard on Commanders

    The Commander team was put through a gauntlet early in the season. After an opening night 82-74 loss against Taylor County, the misfortune continued with a 94-72 loss three days later to Marion County.
    “That’s why we play a tough schedule early, to see where we are,” said head coach Bernard Smalley. “We didn’t quit, we kept fighting.”
