  • Pair of losses for girls

    Taylor County teams notched two victories over Washington County this weekend, with Taylor County High School and Campbellsville High School winners in their respective matchups against the Commanderettes.

  • Split results for Commanders

    Nearly two months have passed since the first meeting between Taylor and Washington County, a game that the Cardinals won 82-74. In the time since, the Commanders have gone on a tear, winning 13 of the following 17 games. In the last month, Washington County’s Drew Yates has been on a hot streak of his own, averaging more than 24 points per game.

    Even still, the Cardinals managed to derail the Commanders, snatching a 71-68 win in Saturday’s game.

  • Commanderettes finish second in...

    The Commanderettes wrapped up a packed section of its schedule on Monday night, playing its fourth game in five days. Washington County went 2-2 in that stretch, with one loss coming in the championship of the 12th Region All A Classic.

  • Commanders runners-up for second...

    Washington County once again made it to the championship round of the 12th Region All A Classic, but an incredibly talented Danville side held off the Commanders and booked a trip to the state tournament.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
