  • Eagles looking for another winning season under Wise

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Entering his 12th season at the helm of the North Bullitt Eagle baseball program, Brian Wise has never been so uncertain.

    For the first time since the program shifted to the Sixth Region starting with the 2006 season, the Chargers did not advance out of district play. The red and gold suffered a frustrating 5-4 loss to Fern Creek in the semi-finals.
