  • Lady Eagles stay hot, roll past Bullitt Central 10-1

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- A day after losing 8-0 to the state’s top-ranked team, Ballard, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles got back in the saddle on Wednesday and beat Bullitt Central 10-1.

    Those two wins came just a few days after North Bullitt had capped spring break with a four game sweep in a tournament at Washington County. Coach Eric Lambert’s team opened with a 2-1 victory over Bishop Brossart and then turned back Danville 2-0. Pool play then concluded with a 4-1 victory over West Aurora (IL.) ‘A’ by a 4-1 count.

  • Softball, baseball teams entering the key district action this week

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The post-season is still a month away, but some of the most important games of the regular season will be played this week for the area diamond teams in the 24th District.

    Of course, the first words associated with that plan are ‘weather permitting’. As anyone who follows high school spring sports in Kentucky, following the weather comes in a close second to keeping track of your favorite team.

  • East falters against Butler, then roars past Rebels

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - For the second time this season, the Bullitt East Chargers had trouble against a top-flight opponent on Thursday as they lost to Sixth Region rival Butler 15-10.

    While scoring ten runs was a good thing in the eyes of head coach Jeff Bowles, the other parts of the game suffered for the Chargers including poor pitching performances from the team’s top two arms - juniors Brandon Alphin and Matt Bowles.

    Bullitt East did bounce back on Saturday, taking a pair of lopsided wins over Atherton, 18-0 and 21-0.

  • New sheriff's DARE car out on road to help teach big lesson

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - When it comes to the war against drug abuse, the Bullitt County Sheriffs dare to do more.

    That includes the force’s newest vehicle, the DARE patrol unit.

    A 1998 Ford already in the Sheriffs department’s custody, the unit was revamped into a prime vehicle with a new paint job, body work and accessories.

    The best thing about the new vehicle was the price. Chief deputy Danny Thompson said all the work was donated.

  • Hillview honors Burton; city, Fox Chase, host cleanup days

    HIILVIEW - While work continues to clean up limbs left by the storm, Hillview residents have an opportunity to get rid of their junk on Saturday.

    The annual cleanup day will be held on Saturday, April 4.

    From 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., extra dumpsters will be in place at the works department garage at the end of Prairie Drive.

    Works foreman Jim Bohannon said that no hazardous materials would be accepted, as well as household garbage.

    The county cleanup weekends will not be held in the spring. The project could be held later this summer or fall.

  • Sanctioned vs. non-sanctioned; does it really make a difference?

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Twice in the past month I’ve written high school sports stories that have dealt with non-sanctioned events.

    In this context, non-sanctioned means a sport that is not recognized by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association. Last week it was archery. This week it is bowling.

    In both instances, the groups in question were representing their schools. For archery it was Bullitt East. In bowling it was North Bullitt. When they compete, they represent their school and wear the school colors proudly.

  • Bullitt East is still undefeated with a 4-0 start in boys' tennis

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East boys’ tennis team is off to a quick start to the 2009 season, going undefeated through the first three weeks of the regular season.

    The most recent win came on Thursday when coach Dustin Armstrong’s team traveled to Shepherdsville and beat Bullitt Central 5-0. The squad also has a 5-0 victory over North Bullitt earlier in the campaign.

    The Chargers have also beaten Whitefield Academy 3-2 as well as Seneca 4-1. A match with Oldham County on Friday was rained out.

  • Recent snubs seem out of line for Bullitt County

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Over the past few years, Bullitt County athletes and teams have garnered more and more respect - most of it earned and given with good cause.

    However, every so often some things happen that just make you say out loud ‘what were they thinking?’

    That has happened a handful of times over the past month or so.

    First, Kentucky’s high school football coaches voted recently to select two teams for an East-West All-Star game that will be played on the campus of Western Kentucky University.

  • Central blows out Fern Creek 12-2

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central hasn’t had a lot of success over the past decade or so in baseball, but third-year head coach Tommy Alvey feels that his team is just a few breaks away from having a winning record this year.

    That was the case again last week as the team went 1-2. Even though the team was blanked in a perfect game by North Bullitt’s Matt Wagner, the Cougars only lost the game 1-0.

    The maroon and gray then came back to blister Fern Creek 12-2 in five innings before falling to Jeffersontown 10-4 on Saturday.
