  • Survive and advance

    Down 19-6 in the third quarter, it looked like the end of the road for Washington County football.

    Playing against a physically imposing Owen County side on a field that had been turned into a soup by the day’s earlier rain, the Commanders had struggled for much of the game to string drives together and keep their offense on the field. But with the season on the line, Washington County put together a fourth quarter comeback that saw them force two turnovers and score 14 unanswered points on the way to a 20-19 win over the Rebels.

  • By the numbers

    Dawson is ranked 12th in the state among 2A schools and is averaging 9.5 yards per carry and around 100 yards per game. Bullish and not afraid of contact, a large percentage of the junior running back’s yards come after breaking at least one tackle. He has nine rushing touchdowns so far this season and has also operated often as a pass-catcher out of the screen. He has turned eight catches into 124 yards and three touchdowns. Also acting as a kick returner, he has three touchdowns directly from returns this season.

  • Breaking through

    After the loss to Christian Academy of Louisville on Oct. 20, one season ended and a new, higher-stakes season began for the Washington County football team. This Friday’s game against the Owen County Rebels will be the start of a win-or-go-home postseason campaign.

  • WC shutdown in Louisville

    Going up against the defending 2A State Champions, the Commanders of Washington County were handed their fourth loss of the season in last Friday’s 49-6 defeat against the Christian Academy of Louisville Centurions.

    “We game planned really hard for them and they just stymied everything we tried to do,” said Washington County head coach Eric Sagercy after the game.

  • Volleyball makes post-season run

    Before last week, Washington County volleyball had never made it past the semifinal round in the 19th District Tournament. That streak was broken last Tuesday as the Commanderettes beat Bethlehem in a thrilling five-game match for their first chance at a 19th District title. The team would come up just short, falling 3-1 to Bardstown in the championship game in a performance that head coach John Rogers praised for its tenacity.

  • Volleyball ends regular season

    Regular season play ended for Washington County volleyball with a loss against Bardstown last Thursday night. That result gives them a final record of 13-20 for the season after a rough spell in the last month saw them only win one game.

    Last week’s game against the Bardstown Tigers was another difficult matchup for the Commanderettes. Bardstown was undefeated in district play and had only lost three times throughout the season.

  • WC held scoreless by DeSales

    Up against one of the finest teams in the 2A class, Washington County wasn’t able to find a way to match the strength of the DeSales Colts in last Friday’s 42-0 loss.

    The Colts came into the game undefeated in their last seven games and as a favorite for a state championship.

  • Former SCC player arrested in...

    Keeping up with the deluge of information from the recent federal investigation into corruption in college basketball has been a full-time job since the story first surfaced two weeks ago. Since then, the fallout has included the firing or forced resignations of head coaches, assistant coaches and athletics directors from schools such as Alabama, Auburn, Arizona, USC and perhaps most notably, Louisville. But while Rick Pitino and Louisville may carry the most local notoriety, another named in the investigation has direct ties with Washington County.

  • Volleyball teams changes system
  • Commanders back to winning ways

     

    Coming off of a loss to Western Hills, the Commanders had a statement to make when they took on Shawnee away from home last week. They wasted no time, scoring early and often as they rolled over Shawnee on their way to a 49-6 win that puts them at 6-2 for the season.
