  • Commanderettes pick up wins as...

    A 72-55 win over Whitefield Academy provided a bright spot for a Commanderettes team that has struggled to find results in its last few games.

    After defeating Marion County by a score of 51-48 at home early in January, the Lady Knights got their revenge in a 55-40 win over Washington County on Feb. 6. That loss was compounded by another loss later that week, 53-36, against Campbellsville.

  • Commanders' streak grows

    It was three games and three wins last week for the Commanders as they rumble down the final stretch of the regular season and toward the district tournament.

    This past Monday, it would have been easy to mistake who was the home team when the Commanderettes basketball team hosted the Marshall County Lady Marshals. The game’s “Marshall Strong” theme was taken to heart by those in attendance as the stands were filled with a sea of blue and orange; a symbol of memoriam for the two students killed and 21 wounded during a shooting at Marshall County High School on Jan. 23.

  • Girls fall short against Danville

    A chance for midseason accolades was snatched away from the Commanderettes as they lost 60-30 against Danville in the championship of the 12th Region All “A” Classic. Washington County had earned their spot in the final after they defeated Burgin 58-25 in the tournament’s opening round.

    After breezing through the opening round of the All “A” Classic against Burgin with a 71-40 win, the Commanders came up against their most difficult opponent of the season in the championship game. Despite keeping things close in the first quarter, a well-balanced Somerset team would eventually open up the gap and go on to win 76-59.

    At nearly the halfway point of the season, Washington County High School’s basketball teams are in very different places.

    The boys have seesawed their way through the first half of the season and the team’s record sits at just above .500 at the time of print. A rocky end to 2017 saw them go 1-5 in a two-week span. Since then, they’ve won four regular season games in a row, outscoring their opponents by a cumulative score of 255-214.

  • New year, more wins

    After a largely forgettable opening act of the season, the Commanderettes will be happy to use last Saturday night’s win over Marion County as a starting point for the second half of their schedule. It took two overtime periods, but the 51-48 win against Marion County did help wash away the sting of the 48-35 loss to Bethlehem the night before.
