  • Lift, lower, repeat


    For some, 9 o’clock on a Saturday morning is bringing about the drowsy start of a comfortably lazy day. The height of activity is probably rolling out of bed, a shuffle for coffee and breakfast and maybe a heroic lift of the remote control to turn on the morning news. What brings greater happiness than pure relaxation?

    For some, it comes from the boom of music, the thunder of weights and a good sweat. Lots and lots of sweat.

  • Commanderettes round out week...

    Two wins last week have helped the Washington County softball team build up its record after a slow start to the season.  Victories over the Campbellsville Eagles and the Elizabethtown Panthers mean the Commanderettes are now 5-9 this season.

    According to head coach Christy Baker, the team’s improvements have come from their growing familiarity with one another.

  • Track team gets good run at...

    The Commanders reached the podium multiple times and capped off their meet at Taylor County with a collection of first place finishes.

    Once again, the 4x200 meter relay team took the top spot, beating out the Taylor County side by more than six seconds. Matthew Cochran, Denzel Churchill, Cody Spalding and Samuel Goins turned in a time of 1:40.74, their fastest finish this season.

    The 4x100 meter relay team also picked up a first-place finish, with Lance Herald, Churchill, Cochran and Adarius Walker finishing in a time of 49.77.

  • Baseball wins two in district...


    The Commanders came out on top twice during a three-game series with the Nelson County Cardinals this past week.

  • Softball team repeats as Class ‘...


    The Commanderettes made it look easy, ending both games of the Class ‘A’ Regional Tournament after only five innings. After some early season stumbles, the team righted itself in a big way, crushing the Burgin Bulldogs 10-0 in the first round before going on to win 11-1 against the Danville Admirals later that day.

  • 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.
