  • East finishes with strong 4-1 week

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It wasn’t a perfect week, but the Bullitt East Chargers closed out the 2015 baseball regular season with a strong week as the red and gold won four of the final five games including the last three in a row.

    Bullitt East will now head into this week’s 24th District Tournament with a 21-14 record. The Chargers played Fern Creek on Tuesday and with a victory will move into Wednesday’s championship game against Jeffersontown at 6 p.m. at Jeffersontown.

  • NB gains ‘mo’ with perfect closing week

     HEBRON ESTATES -- If North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise had the opportunity to write the script for the final week of the regular season, it couldn’t have been much better than what actually happened.

    Coming off the only week this season where the bats were a little weak, North Bullitt completed a 25-11 regular slate with four straight victories over quality opponents.

    Besides the bats coming alive once again, Wise was able to give catcher Chance Egnor and centerfielder Daulton Walls a little time off to mend some slight injuries.

  • BC struggles into post-season

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – There was some good news off the field for the Bullitt Central Cougars last week, but that didn’t translate into the team’s final three games of the regular season as the maroon and gray dropped each contest.

    That action left Bullitt Central with a 9-20 mark heading into this week’s 23rd District Tournament at North Bullitt. The Cougars were scheduled to play Southern in a semi-final game on Tuesday.

  • Large local contingent headed to state track

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After waiting a week for the final word, a large local contingent of Bullitt County athletes will make the trip to Lexington on Saturday for the Class AAA Kentucky State Track and Field Championships being held at the University of Kentucky.

    There are actually 36 athletes on the scoring sheets who could be in action on Saturday with five of the six area boys’ and girls’ programs having at least one entry. That number is a little misleading as coaches were allowed to put up to eight names in each of the relays.

  • District diamond play starts today

    SHEPHERDSVILLE--The post-season for Bullitt County baseball and softball teams will start this week with 23rd District Tournament play at North Bullitt and 24th District action at Jeffersontown High School.
        Play will actually start on Monday in all four events, but the only local team set to take the field on that day will be the North Bullitt baseball team as they will take on Moore in the 23rd District.

  • North's Akin taking football skills to Hanover

    HEBRON ESTATES-- North Bullitt senior football player T.J. Akin knew just where he wanted to attend college and after some financial details were worked out, Akin recently made it all official, signing to play the next four years at Hanover College in southern Indiana.
        "I've always wanted to go to Hanover," the senior lineman said after a small ceremony in the North Bullitt lobby with family and coaches present. "It was just the money that kept me from committing. They came up with some more and that is when I committed."

  • BE's Staples goes 1-1 at state tennis

    LEXINGTON -- Bullitt East junior tennis standout Jacob Staples didn't get a chance to face defending state champion Brandon Lancaster of St. Xavier in the recent Sixth Region Tournament.
        Unfortunately, Staples got to see Lancaster up close and personnel on Thursday in the second round of the Kentucky State Tennis Championships in Lexington. The result was as expected as Lancaster defeated Staples 6-0, 6-0 en route to defending his state title.

  • BE no-hits BC in final week

    MOUNT WASHINGTON-- Being the only senior on Senior Night made Bullitt East's Loren Roby the center of attention heading into Wednesday night's game against Bullitt Central.
        As it turned out, Roby made it doubly special and the senior had all eyes on her as she pitched a no-hitter as the Lady Chargers rolled past visiting Bullitt Central 10-0 in softball action.
        The win capped a nice final week to the regular season for the Lady Chargers as they won a pair of games.

  • Funds found to clear hurdle on tracks

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- While not yet reaching the finish line, it appears track and field competitors in Bullitt County might be getting closer to a winning resolution to a long-time problem.
        The Bullitt County Public School Board voted unanimously at the May work session to allow architect Scott Kremer to negotiate with the two low bidders.
        The goal is to find a way to lower the bids, both of which were well over the estimated cost to repair and upgrade the Bullitt Central track.

  • North keeps the pressure on to defeat Chargers 4-2

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Any time you throw North Bullitt and Bullitt East into the athletic arena, you can pretty well expect a good contest.

    On a Friday night with a tournament-type crowd, it would be the North Bullitt Eagles who came into Mount Washington and walked away with a 4-2 victory on the first night of the Valu-Market Challenge, a six-game, two-day event hosted by Bullitt East.

    It wasn’t a pretty game for either team. But, for the defending Sixth Region champs, it was a needed victory during a week where runs had been tough to come by.
