 SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Bullitt County Softball Invitational will make another attempt to conduct a full tournament this coming weekend as both Bullitt East and Bullitt Central will host games.

Pool ‘A’ will include Bullitt Central, Ryle and Nelson County. Bullitt East heads up Pool ‘B’ along with Bethlehem and Fairdale.

At this last week, both Bullitt East and Ryle were ranked among the top 25-teams in Kentucky as the Lady Chargers were 12th while Ryle was 18th.
