  • Thomas Nelson ends...


    The Commanderettes made it back to .500, winning two games in the last week to take their season record to 12-12. Still riding the momentum of a good showing at the All ‘A’ Classic, Washington County made short work of their two district opponents.

  • Youth clinic helps grow tennis...

     “We want to make sure we have kids involved in things that are positive.”

    The words came from Tichaedza Chikuni, a Springfield resident and tennis coach. “Some kids have never played a sport before. Tennis can carry for a long time.”

    His recent four-week clinic helped introduce the basics and fundamentals of the game to young children. For his students, their introduction to the game was a bit more structured than his own.

  • Elite Eight exit for...

    Arriving at the Class ‘A’ State Tournament as massive underdogs wasn’t something Washington County head coach Christy Baker wanted her team to focus on.

    “I don’t talk to them about rankings,” she said. “We just play. We don’t care how other people judge us. We’re here to play for our team.”

  • Winless weekend for Commander...

    The results were anything but memorable for the Commanders as they lost three in a row at the end of last week.

    “This week we bumped up the competition a little bit and played some tough teams,” said head coach Adam Blair. “It might hurt our record at times, but like I told the kids, I can schedule weaker teams and make us look good, but in the long run it’s not going to help us.”

  • Hurst, Willis named co-MVP’s

    End-of-the-year awards were given out at the boys’ basketball banquet last week.

    Cameron Willis and Devin Hurst shared Most Valuable Player honors after the two juniors helped lead the team to a 17-13 record.

  • Commanders complete sweep of...


    A week’s worth of sterling displays by the Commander baseball team was slightly tarnished as it was sent packing from the Class ‘A’ Regional Tournament in the first round. The loss came after the Commanders swept their three-game series against Thomas Nelson earlier in the week.

  • 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.
