     LEXINGTON – A pair of second place finishes in the long jump and triple jump was quite a day for Bullitt East senior TeeKay Brown in the Kentucky Class 3-A Track and Field Championships on Saturday at the University of Kentucky.

    In fact, it was the best finish ever for a Bullitt County athlete in those two events.

    Still, with all of that good news, there was a tinge of frustration for Brown in that she could not get to the top of the podium.

  • Late rally pushes BE past Butler

      SHIVELY – Scoring three times in the top of the seventh inning, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers exorcised some past demons on Monday, beating Butler 4-1 in the first round of the Sixth Region Softball Tournament.

    In each of the past two seasons the Bearettes have frustrated Bullitt East in the post-season, knocking the red and gold out of post-season play each of the past two seasons including a 4-3 setback a year ago. Butler had played in the last four Sixth Region finals including an 8-2 loss to Bullitt East back in 2012.

  • Lady Eagles outrun rain, Iroquois in opener

     HEBRON ESTATES -- The message was pretty simple -- don’t worry about the opponent; just worry about ourselves.

    Facing an Iroquois team with a 3-9 record on the season, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles took care of business in the opener of the Sixth Region softball tournament by a count of 17-0.

    The biggest question of the day wasn’t the outcome of the ball game. Instead, it was weather the four softball sites could all get their fields ready to play after steady rains.

  • Eagles sweep 23rd District diamond events

    HEBRON ESTATES -- During his first three years at the helm, Mike Nally has been known to do a few unorthodox things as manager of the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.
        As the program has regained some of its past success, Nally said he sees the difference.
        Using the regular season to build to the post-season, North Bullitt defeated top-seeded Southern 5-0 Wednesday to capture the 23rd District softball title.

  • Three tough draws for local teams this week

    SHEPHERDSVILLE-- Everybody looks at tournament draws and sees different things.
        Some see the first-round opponent while others see how tough winning three straight games might be.
        In the one-game view, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles got the draw of a lifetime when they were paired up with Iroquois, a team that played just 12 games this season and won just three. One of the wins came in the opening game of the 22nd District Tournament when they smoked Doss 24-8. The Lady Raiders then lost 16-0 to Butler in the district final.
