  • WC golfers wrap up season at 4th...

    After a stellar season on the course, Washington County High School’s boys’ golf team wrapped up its season in the 4th Region tournament at Campbellsville Country Club Monday.
    The Commanders posted a record of 12-3 in matches this season, and head coach Bobby Bartholomai said despite not playing their best in regional play, the boys placed sixth out of 18 teams in Monday’s tournament. The team’s total score was 352.
    “I think everyone learned a lot and can take it to improve for next season,” Bartholomai said.

  • Volleyball drops two at home

    Tuesday night’s match against Thomas Nelson High School quickly got away from the Commanderettes as they ended up losing the match after five games. Despite winning the first two games, the Generals were anything but a pushover. Washington County took the first game 25-22 and was then able to grind out a 26-24 win in the second.

  • Commanders roll to 5-1

    The game looks easy when a team is playing well, and in Washington County’s 48-6 rout of Caverna last Friday night the Commanders’ performance looked almost effortless.
    “Part of it being easy is their play,” said head coach Eric Sagercy after the game. “It was great to have them come out excited to play and jump on [Caverna] from the first play and not let them breathe.”

  • Cisternas grows into importnat...

    On the wall of the football team’s weight room at Washington County High School is a quote from the late Green Bay Packers head coach Vince Lombardi: “The only time success comes before work is in the dictionary.”
    For the Commanders, the hard work put in by junior guard/defensive tackle Juan Cisternas has taken him from football neophyte to team captain.

  • Commanderettes play in All-A...

    After claiming their fourth consecutive All-A Classic 12th Region championship last month, the Washington County Commanderette volleyball team spent this past weekend in the All-A Classic state tournament in Florence, Kentucky.

    The tournament opened with pool play, featuring four pools made up of four teams in each. Washington County head coach John Rogers knew his team had anything but an easy draw, and before the tournament was over, three teams from Washington County’s bracket would be playing in the finals of their brackets.

  • WC wins ‘Border War’

    There’s no such thing as an easy win, but the Washington County Commanders ended the game with a running clock and very little trouble against rival Marion County in this year’s installment of the annual “Border War.” 

    The Commanders outgunned the Knights 42-6 at Bennett R. Lewis Field in Springfield Friday night.

    Head coach Eric Sagrecy said he was happy with his team’s efforts. 

    “We played really well,” he said. 

    Sagrecy gave a shout out to a number of his players.

  • Golfers win fourth straight


    Satterly, Taylor and Yates might sound like a law firm, but it’s actually just the names of Washington County’s top three golfers, Grant Satterly, Landon Taylor and Drew Yates.

    Each has shined for the Commanders this season, and each led the team to a win over a three-day span this past week.

    Tuesday afternoon brought Bethlehem and Thomas Nelson high schools to Lincoln Homestead State Park. The Commanders won the match 166-188 over Bethlehem, while Thomas Nelson only fielded two golfers and did not post a team score.

  • Dawson sets school record with...


    After a tough loss last week, Washington County head coach Eric Sagrecy said this week’s game against Thomas Nelson was a bounce-back game for his team.

    And bounce back they did.

    The Commanders topped the Generals 55-37 in a game that wasn’t nearly as close as the final score.

  • WC falls in home opener


    The Washington County Commanders were supposed to be taking on Kentucky Country Day Friday night for their home opener at Bennett R. Lewis Field, but instead, both teams found themselves up against Mother Nature.

    With extremely heavy rains predicted from the remnants of Hurricane Harvey, which had pounded Texas earlier in the week, last Friday night’s game was moved to an early Thursday evening kickoff.

    If you’ve ever thought there wasn’t anything to do in Washington County, you may not be alone. Now, however, there’s a new activity available for people of all ages and abilities.

    Disc golf is an outdoor activity that is gaining popularity around the nation, and Bobby Bartholomai is well aware of that fact.

    Bartholomai is the PGA golf pro and park manager at Lincoln Homestead State Park, and he has recently created a disc golf course on the park’s property.
