     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Just play five.

    That was the fun saying that Bullitt East head coach Jeff Bowles and his team came up with last week as they mowed through opponents in sunny Florida.

    There was a loss for the Chargers early in the trip, but the Chargers annual spring break trip to the Disney Wide World of Sports Complex was very successful as the red and gold returned home with a 4-1 mark with three straight wins to end the trip.

    Those last three wins all ended after five innings because of the high school ‘mercy’ rule.
