  • Area middle schoolers had big track year

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – Finally with a place to host larger meets, the six Bullitt County middle schools got together in May and held an All-County Championship meet after not being able to do it because of a lack of a suitable track.

    Now with the new tracks at all three high schools, the middle school competed at Bullitt East this year to crown champions in 12 events for both the boys and the girls.

    In the team races Eastside was the bigger winner as that program won both the boys’ and girls’ events.

  • BE cheerleading pair headed to Western Ky. U.

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East’s highly regarded cheerleading program has sent two more athletes to a top college program as seniors Brooke Stivers and Alyssa Huen both recently signed to continue their cheerleading at Western Kentucky University.

    In May, both of the Charger seniors went through a try-out camp in Bowling Green and both were accepted into the All-Girls program, a team that finished fourth this past season at the UCA National Championships in Orlando.

    The Hilltopper’s All-Girls squad is coached by Josh Bewley.

  • BE’s Green to compete in track at Spalding U.

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Coming out of Eastside Middle School, Connor Green was a basketball and baseball player. Even in middle school, he was part of the Bullitt East baseball program.

    But midway through his sophomore season, Bullitt East track coach Lenny Raley started preaching the Green the positives of that sport. With baseball losing ground, Green opted to join the track team that spring.

    He has never looked back.

  • BE’s Masden headed to Bellarmine track team hoops with IUS squad

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Three years ago, Bullitt East’s Lauren Masden would have predicted that she would be signing grant-in-aid papers to attend the college or her choice in the spring of 2017.

    Masden would have also told you that she would be signing to be a basketball player.

    As it turns out, Masden had the big picture right, but she missed on the sport. Instead, the Charger senior recently signed with Bellarmine University to join the track and field program as a distance runner.
