  • NB's Schott signs to continue volleyball at Midway College

    LOUISVILLE - North Bullitt senior Sara Schott got the best of both worlds last week when she signed to attend Midway College in Midway, Ky.

    On one hand, she will get to continue playing volleyball for a program that is trying to rebuild itself under third-year head coach Cindy Cheatham. At the same time, she gets to follow her dream to major in accounting. It also didn’t hurt that Midway is not too far away from home.

  • Hillview looks to expand city boundaries

    HILLVIEW -- When presented the opportunity, Hillview officials are always eager to add territory to its current boundary.

    The city is now in pursuit of a 12-acre tract off Brooks Road, just west of the Interstate 65 interchange.

    Mayor Jim Eadens said there had been some discussions previously about annexing the property but nothing had been done.

    The property runs along Williams Lane and near the Jefferson Gun Club.

  • Cougars win a game, but then struggle with errors

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars picked up one win last week, but for the most part the maroon and gray struggled with poor fielding which overshadowed some strong pitching and improved hitting.

    The week started with a 14-4 loss to Fairdale. The outcome means that the two teams will meet in the first round of the 24th District Tournament which will be played at Fairdale this season. Fairdale will have the number four seed while Bullitt Central will be the number five team.

  • Lady Cougars find ways to win close ball games

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- A week earlier, Bullitt Central softball coach Buddy Gallemore was lamenting his team’s inability to win close ball games.

    What a difference a week makes. The Lady Cougars did a much better job of getting the key hit at key times as they won three of five games last week including a 7-5 victory over Southern.

  • Knowing how to watch the weather key

    April 1 means April Fools' Day, a day where I could write about men from Mars invading Bullitt County and searching for intelligent life.

    The odds of this happening are astronomical, primarily because we have not determined that there is intelligent life in outer space, much less here.

    There are other things that remind us of April's arrival other than being foolish. Sometimes Easter is a sure sign. Sporting events like the NCAA basketball championships and Major League Baseball opening day help.

  • Micah's Chester to play for college powerhouse

    HILLVIEW -- What college basketball coach has won the most national championships and what school does he work for?

    Give up.

    Ron Arnett has won 11 national championships as head coach of the Kentucky Christian University Lady Knights, including the past three National Christian College Athletic Association titles.

    When Rachel Chester of Micah Christian Academy in northern Bullitt County went down to try out for a possible spot on next year’s roster, the coach who has won 78 percent of his games at the Grayson, Ky., university was impressed.
