  • BE baseball ready to live up to expectations

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Perhaps not since the early 1990s with the high-powered softball program have expectations been as high for a spring sports team as they are this season for the Bullitt East baseball squad.

    With all but two players returning from a team that posted a program best 27-7 mark last year, a record that included a 14-game winning streak, the Chargers are sitting amongst the state’s elite this season. Already, coaches in Kentucky have ranked Bullitt East 11th in the state to start the season.

  • Lady Chargers will be young, but energized

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - A year of familiarity with each other should pay dividends this spring for the Bullitt East softball program.

    A year ago, head coach Ed Phelps was not hired until a few months before the start of the 2008 season. That made it a learning experience for the coach and his players throughout the season.

    Now, the coach knows his players and the players know what to expect from the coach.

    “We’re excited to have a new field,” the coach said just before he starts his third season at the helm. “The kids are positive. It’s something the kids are proud of and can call their own.”

  • Eagle baseball seeking the next step - regional success

    HEBRON ESTATES - For most area baseball teams, getting to the University of Louisville’s Jim Patterson Stadium for a regional tournament game pretty much sits at the top of the ‘goal list’ at the start of each season.

    For the North Bullitt Eagles, it is more a ‘been there and done that’ mindset in terms of that wish list. Of course, the green and gold want to get to that stage, something they did last season. Now, the top goal is to start winning games that go far into the post-season.

  • Lady Eagles ready to attack a tough schedule

    HEBRON ESTATES – Over the previous five seasons in which he has been involved in the North Bullitt softball program, Eric Lambert has seen a lot of different things.

    Mostly he has seen head coaches come and go. As an assistant coach, Lambert has worked under four different head coaches. During one season, in 2006, Lambert was elevated to head coach when John Hammonds stepped down midway through the season.
