  • Chargers drop one, then win three in a row

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There was a frustrating 1-0 loss to open play last week, but the Bullitt East Chargers channeled that setback into three straight wins as the red and gold moved to 11-3 for the season.

    The setback came on Tuesday at home against Christian Academy despite an outstanding pitching performance from junior Jarrett Wantye as he allowed just three hits. Unfortunately, two of those hits came in the top of the sixth inning when the Centurions scored the winning run with a single, a ground-out and then a double.

  • BC wins two then falters Saturday

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – The week started out well for the Bullitt Central baseball squad with a pair of wins, but then a road trip on Saturday brought the squad back to earth as they dropped a pair of games in which they played poor defense.

    The good news was at the start of the week as the Cougars got a strong outing from senior pitcher Callon Willet and beat Nelson County 1-0 on the road.

    Willet needed just 92 pitches for the victory as he finished with seven strikeouts and just two walks. Nelson County finished with four hits, all singles.

  • NB still finding wins to be elusive

     HEBRON ESTATES -- He’s not pleased with the record  but records don’t really mean anything in the big scheme of things.

    North Bullitt baseball coach Brian Wise is more worried about getting all the pieces together to make a post-season run.

    With that in mind, the most important games of the regular season await — Thursday at Bullitt Central and Monday at home against Southern.

    Those will determine if North Bullitt will enter the 23rd District tournament as a top seed.

  • BC will compete Thursday in KHSAA state archery finals

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central will have both its boys’ and girls’  teams competing on Thursday in the KHSAA State Archery Championships at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

  • Lady Chargers have all the answers in crushing BC

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt East and Bullitt Central hadn’t met on the softball diamond since 2015 and maybe it should have been one more year as the rebuilding Lady Cougars were no match for the Lady Chargers on Friday, as the red and gold rolled to a 26-2 victory in a three-inning contest.

    This one was just not close as Bullitt Central had to use a pair of young and inexperienced pitchers against a Bullitt East line-up that while young has recently been showing signs of rounding into a competitive team.

  • North Bullitt softball continues building momentum

     HEBRON ESTATES – A week with five wins in six games pushed the North Bullitt Lady Eagles over the .500 mark at 9-8 for the first time this season.

    Head coach Chad Laswell is finding games wherever he can after the slow start to the season due to bad weather. That included playing two games on Sunday at Bethlehem in a ‘triangle’ event that had originally been scheduled for the previous Saturday.

  • BC will compete Thursday in KHSAA state archery finals

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central will have both its boys’ and girls’  teams competing on Thursday in the KHSAA State Archery Championships at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

  • Tennis teams get on courts as post-season approaching

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Despite a week that included heavy snow showers, spring sports are quickly approaching the post-season for tennis players.

    Activities on the court have intensified as regional play begins the second week of May.

This year’s winners were Luke Ezell of the Bullitt East Chargers. The top female player was Hailey Free of North Bullitt High School.

  • Simpson pitches East past J-town

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Getting a complete game, three-hitter from junior Garrett Simpson, the Bullitt East Chargers started 24th District play on Tuesday with a 4-2 victory over Jeffersontown.

    With limited ‘game’ experience this spring because of the bad weather, Bullitt East head coach Jeff Bowles was not looking for Simpson to pitch a complete game, but the junior kept his pitch count low so the need never developed for a change.
