  • World What?

    Do you want something more?
    Maybe the drought of major sporting events in the summer months has your desperate for a new fix. Maybe you’re burned out from watching the same two teams compete for the NBA Championship year after year. Maybe you’ve gotten so sucked in to playing FIFA on your PlayStation that now you want to take the next step into soccer fandom. Maybe you just love a good bit of drama.

  • Softball three-peats after win...

    After a 0-6 start to the season, the prospect of a district title couldn’t have looked farther away for Washington County Softball. But after a mid-April revival, the team went on a 15-6 run that took it into the 19th District championship and beyond. That run, and the season, came to an end after a first round exit in the regional tournament.

  • Commanders advance to second...

    At the beginning of the season, baseball coach Adam Blair said his team would be playing with a chip on its shoulder after failing to reach the regional tournament last year.
    “It was big,” he said, “it was the first time for these guys…they’re going to be hungry because they had something taken away from them.”
    That hunger paid off, as the Commanders stormed on to a 13-1 district record and title and now look for a run in the Fifth Region Tournament.

  • Commanders look to reclaim their...
  • Commanderettes leave behind...


    The Commanderettes’ 28-game season was evenly split at 14 wins, 14 lossess for the second year running after they finished their final game of the regular season this past Saturday. Their 5-3 district record was good enough to allow them a first round bye that puts them one win away from playing for their third consecutive title.

    Marion County Knights


    A slow start made all the difference in the Commanders’ 8-3 loss to Marion County on Thursday.

    The Knight’s speed out of the gate gave them two early runs that stood unanswered for four innings.

    Bethlehem Banshees

    A strong performance in the later innings of the game gave the Commanderettes an 8-3 win over Bethlehem on Tuesday.

    Trinity Baker resumed her home run streak against the Eagles after failing to clear the fences against Thomas Nelson in the previous game. Her shot to center field marked her fourth home run in her last four games.

  • Track and Field team ends season...


    The Commanders track team joined 15 other schools to compete at the regional meet last Friday in their final meet of the season.

    Running against the most competitive field they’ve faced so far, the Commanders managed a couple of season-best times but failed to have anyone qualify for the state meet later this week.

  • Commanders sweep Bethlehem

    Game 1 v. Bethlehem Eagles

    The tone for the three-game series between Washington County and Bethlehem was set in game one, with the Commanders delivering a dominating 12-0 win over the Eagles away from home.

    It was a slow burn across the first two innings, as neither team was able to generate much at the plate. Washington County seemed poised to open the scoring, but weak contact from the Commander bats gave the Eagles easy pickings in the infield.

  • Thomas Nelson ends...


    The Commanderettes made it back to .500, winning two games in the last week to take their season record to 12-12. Still riding the momentum of a good showing at the All ‘A’ Classic, Washington County made short work of their two district opponents.
