    “We’ve definitely been playing a lot better than what we’ve been playing in the past few weeks,” said Patriot head coach Holly Smith. “We’ve been able to get runners on and able to score, and our defense has picked it up quite a bit.”

    SCC started the week with a pair at Midway College on April 1, winning 2-1 and 8-6. Freshman pitcher Ashley Hardin took the mound for the Patriots in the first game, giving up seven hits over eight innings.

    Sometimes baseball is a game of streaks, and at other times baseball is a proverbial roller coaster of wins and losses. That’s how the season has gone for the Washington County baseball Commanders lately as they have ridden the thrill ride of peaks and valleys since their win over Hart County on March 26.

    Starting with that game, it’s been win, loss, win, loss, win, loss for WC. With a spring break trip to Florida fast approaching, the Commanders were hoping to put an end to the start/stop rhythm of their season.

    It’s no secret that Nelson County is the team to beat in 19th District softball. The Lady Cards have been a dominant force for almost two decades, so when the Washington County Commanderettes see the Lady Cards pulling into Springfield, they know they have a fight on their hands.

    When the two teams locked horns on March 30, it was Nelson County who got off to an early 4-0 lead after the top of the first inning, and they never looked back, beating WC 12-1 in the first district match-up of the year.

    The Washington County Commander baseball season got off to an impressive start March 23 with a 4-0 shutout of visiting North Hardin. The Commanders got excellent play in the field and at the plate, while senior starting pitcher Joseph Hamilton turned in five innings of work, and junior Travis Smith closed the door on the Trojans with two scoreless innings in relief.
