  • Lady Chargers fail to find 'A' game

    LOUISVILLE-- There is never a good time to play a bad game and that goes double for the post-season.

  • Mercy rolls early against NB

    LOUISVILLE-- The North Bullitt Lady Eagles were in rarified air on Wednesday, reaching the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Softball Tournament for the first time since 2009.
        Waiting for the green and gold were two monoliths-- state-power Mercy and Ulmer Stadium on the University of Louisville campus.
        The nerves were obvious as the young team gave up seven runs over the first three innings before settling down and making a better showing down the stretch before losing 8-1 to the Jaguars.

  • North Bullitt repeats regional title

    LOUISVILLE -- With two runners on and one out in the seventh inning, North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise went to the mound.

        Two outs later, Wise would indeed be celebrating with his team which had secured its second straight trip to the Rawlings/KHSAA state baseball tournament in Lexington.
