  • Track team puts in busy week

    Despite the nasty weather, the Washington County High School track team was able to compete in two meets last week.

    On Thursday, the team participated in an all-comers meet at Marion County High School.
    The girls’ team finished fifth out of five teams with a total of 32 points, while the boys’ team finished third out of five teams with 39 points.
    Moriah Hourigan finished second in the 100-meter dash, with a time of 13.44 seconds. Shay Yocum finished fourth in the event at 13.62.

  • Commanderettes flip one on...

    The Commanderettes were a play and a hit from either going 2-0 or 0-2 last week, but were able to split a pair of games with the district tournament fast approaching.

    Washington County vs. Danville
    5-3 Danville
    When: Friday, April 29
    Where: Idle Hour Park
    Game highlights: Washington County couldn’t convert a bases loaded situation, thus falling 5-3 to the Lady Admirals to split the season series 1-1.

  • Commanders repeat in All-A

    The Commanders began the weekend early, beating Bethlehem 8-0 in a one-hit pitching gem for their second consecutive Fifth Region All-A tournament championship.
    They split the next two games 1-1.

    Washington County vs. Hart County
    12-2 Washington County
    When: Saturday, April 30
    Where: Hart County
    Game highlights: The Commanders (14-6) jumped out to a 5-2 lead after two innings and never let up.

  • Sagrecy starts filling his staff

    He’s been on the job as Washington County’s new head football coach just over two weeks, and Eric Sagrecy has already started to fill his coaching staff.
    On Monday the former Washington County High and Georgetown College player announced that he was bringing on two coaches who followed a similar path in their careers.

    Bobby Joe Mattingly, a teacher at North Washington Elementary School, and Scott Mudd, a teacher at Washington County Middle School, were named the first two assistants on Sagrecy’s staff.

  • Track team competes at Marion...

    The Washington County track team competed in Lebanon last week in the Marion County All- Comers meet.
    The Commanders had some success individually, although the boys’ team came in fourth out of seven teams, while the girls’ team was sixth out of seven.

  • Commanderettes fall in All-A...


  • Commanders seek second straight...


  • Lincoln men’s club tees off

    On Sunday the Lincoln Men’s Golf Club held the Stag Scramble, the kick-off tournament for the year. 

    With the wind blowing around 15 to 25 MPH and the ground soaked, the playing was tough. 
    The winning team of Tony Medley, Ted McNeal and Ricky “Bobby” Hoppes posted nine under 62. 
    Second place went to Mikie Yates, Fred Armstrong, and Pat Cassitty; with an eight under 63.
    Third place went to Bill Frost, Brad Reynolds, and Travis Wheatley.

  • Postseason still unclear for SCC...

    The  St. Catharine College Patriots journeyed to Williamsburg on Saturday to play a softball doubleheader against the University of the Cumberlands.

    The two games could have easily cleared up the seeding for post-season play that is scheduled to start next Monday.
    Instead, after the teams split the twin bill, the picture for the Mid-South Conference tournament  remained as murky as the local creeks this spring.
    Both St. Catharine and Cumberlands now have a 6-16 record in the conference.

  • Patriot track team continues...

    The St. Catharine College track and field teams haven’t yet recruited enough athletes to compete for team titles at any meets.

    First year coach Blake Jones is encouraged by the improvement his runners have shown each time out this spring.
    That improvement continued Saturday at the Bellarmine University Invitational in Louisville.
    Three Patriots recorded personal records at the meet.
    The Patriots were able to place in the top 10 in three events on the cold, blustery, rainy day that brought 17 teams to Bellarmine.
