  • Relay team takes first at...

    At the Heartland Athletic Conference track and field meet at Green County last week, the Commanders managed to have one team take first place.

    The boys’ 4x200 meter relay team of Matthew Cochran, Denzel Churchill, Samuel Goins and Adarius Walker finished first among the four teams in the field with a time of 1:41.09. A strong anchor leg from Walker made sure the Commanders’ group finished ahead of Adair County by just three-tenths of a second.

  • Runs galore in Commanderettes win

    Victory eluded the Commanderettes in Florida. After five games they returned home with a still empty win column. On Monday, a crushing 21-4 win over the Danville Lady Admirals finally removed the zero from the front of their record.
    It was a welcome win for Washington County after a pair of one-sided losses against the Presentation Toppers and South Laurel Lady Cardinals.

  • Final Florida games cause...

    After a red-hot start to the season the Commanders got their first taste of defeat in a 6-3 loss to Fern Creek last week. The team split its final two games in the Ft. Walton Beach Bash, picking up a 13-3 win over Brookville High School of Ohio and losing 14-3 against Union County in the final contest of the week.

  • Track and field builds early...

    After two meets, the Commanders track and field team is picking up the pace ahead of what looks to be a packed April schedule.
    Head coach Nicole Wilson has 28 athletes on the team this year, an increase from the number she coached last season.
    “We have a really good combination this year,” said Wilson during a team practice last week. “We’ve got some sprinters, some distance and some really good relay teams that work together.”

  • Baseball opens up season 5-0

    You can’t ask for a much better start to the season as the Commanders have strung together five straight wins in the opening five games.
    The latest victories come during the team’s weeklong run of games in Florida during the Fort Walton Beach Bash. The Commanders kicked off the week with games against two other Kentucky schools, winning 9-6 against Henry County on April 1 and 7-0 against Owensboro Catholic on April 2.

  • Commanderettes come up short in...

    While the results haven’t been what she’s wanted, the fact that the team is on the field and playing comes as a welcome sight to Commanderettes head coach Christy Baker.
    Before this week, the softball team had only been able to play a total of five innings this season. Those were played during a downpour.

  • Fishing scene is strong at WCHS

    Six years after becoming an officially sanctioned sport in Kentucky, competitive bass fishing is alive and thriving in the region.
    In 2013, the first-ever regional tournament featured just 12 schools. Since then, that number has more than tripled, with more than 35 different high schools and roughly 150 boats participating last year.

  • Burton named head coach at...

    “I’m just a little-bitty boy from Springfield, Kentucky, I’m not supposed to be like this.”
    But there J.T. Burton was, standing at the podium addressing an attentive crowd at Tusculum College. James Tyler “J.T.” Burton was named the head basketball coach for the NCAA Division II school last week, replacing Nick Pasqua after the latter resigned at the end of last season.

  • Sagrecy qualifies for national...

    After making his mark on the competitive fishing scene in Washington County, Campbellsville University sophomore Trevor Sagrecy has a chance at making a splash on the national stage.
    Sagrecy was one of the founding members of the fishing team at Washington County High School, serving as the team’s president and twice qualifying for the KHSAA State Tournament.  Now, two years after signing with the Campbellsville team, the Washington County native has qualified for the 2019 YETI Fishing League Worldwide College Fishing National Championship.

  • Scrimmage offers first look at...

    “Overall, it’s a good night. We’ve got a lot to work on, but it was promising.”
    So said baseball coach Adam Blair after getting to see his entire Commander roster in a 10-inning scrimmage against Green County last week. After weeks of pre-season workouts and practices, it was the first time Blair and the rest of his coaching staff was able to evaluate the team in an in-game scenario.
