    “I’m just a little-bitty boy from Springfield, Kentucky, I’m not supposed to be like this.”
    But there J.T. Burton was, standing at the podium addressing an attentive crowd at Tusculum College. James Tyler “J.T.” Burton was named the head basketball coach for the NCAA Division II school last week, replacing Nick Pasqua after the latter resigned at the end of last season.

    After making his mark on the competitive fishing scene in Washington County, Campbellsville University sophomore Trevor Sagrecy has a chance at making a splash on the national stage.
    Sagrecy was one of the founding members of the fishing team at Washington County High School, serving as the team’s president and twice qualifying for the KHSAA State Tournament.  Now, two years after signing with the Campbellsville team, the Washington County native has qualified for the 2019 YETI Fishing League Worldwide College Fishing National Championship.

    “Overall, it’s a good night. We’ve got a lot to work on, but it was promising.”

    Washington County’s softball team will be looking to build off of a successful season last year that saw the team bring home a couple of trophies.
    After a nightmare start to the 2017 began with five straight losses, the Commanderettes rebounded in a big way. Hitting their stride at the end of April, the team won four straight in May before going on to dominate in the 19th district tournament and defend their title as district champions.

    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.

    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.
