  • BC leaves bad weather, then finds bad weather

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Heading out of town for spring break in search of good weather, the Bullitt Central baseball team instead found more bad weather on a week-long trip to Alabama.

    Originally scheduled to play four games, the Cougars played just two varsity contests. That means that through the first three weeks of the season, coach G.J. Moore’s team has played only four games, standing at 1-3 heading into the important district games over the next few weeks.

  • Softball still struggling

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Heading to Florida for spring break worked out to some extent for both the Bullitt East Lady Chargers and the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.

    First and foremost, the two teams found some good weather and got in plenty of action, something that was lacking here at home over the first two weeks of the season. What didn’t improve was the winning percentage as both teams posted 1-4 marks on their trips.

  • Bernheim finishes fifth in NASP state championships

     LOUISVILLE – Sometimes in archery, it is hard to tell if the success comes from the youngest and works its way up or if the programs develop from the top down.

    Eastside Middle School really started the National Archery in Schools Program (NASP) many years ago and those shooters eventually fueled a strong Bullitt East program for a number of years.

    Now, on the other side of the county, it appears that the middle schools are taking the example from Bullitt Central and North Bullitt and building on success to power those programs in the long run.

  • Chargers don’t play much, but they do keep winning

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers aren’t getting to play a lot of baseball so far this spring, but the team isn’t losing any games.

    Through the first two weeks plus one day, the red and gold have played just three games. The good news is that tallies out to three wins.

  • Softball still fails to get any momentum going

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The high school softball season just can’t seem to get any traction or momentum through the first two weeks of the schedule.

    In fact, through two weeks, the three local programs have combined to play just five games. Between the three squads, there has been just one win, a victory by Bullitt Central over John Hardin late in week one.

    Otherwise, it has been sit around and wait for Mother Nature to get in a better mood.

  • Lady Eagles’ Ludwig signs to pitch for Midway

     HEBRON ESTATES – The desire to attend a small school and also play softball worked out just fine for North Bullitt senior Madison Ludwig recently when she signed to do her college pitching at Midway College in central Kentucky.

    Ludwig made her decision back in January but she did not sign until a few weeks ago, doing it in front of family and teammates in a ceremony in the North Bullitt Media Center.

    In the end, it came down to Midway or Indiana University Southeast.

  • Cougars second at (NASP) archery state finals

      LOUISVILLE – There will be plenty of pleasant memories this spring break for the Bullitt Central archery team members as coach Dustin Metcalf’s team finished second on Saturday at the Kentucky NASP State Tournament.

    Competing at the Kentucky Exposition Center, the Cougars moved up three spots from last year and finished with a final score of 3,429, just nine points behind winner Madison Central, the runner-up from a year ago.

  • BC bags second in NASP 3D shoot

     LOUISVILLE – While not as established as the main NASP shoots, the group has added the NASP/IBO 3D Challenge to its list of events.

    This was the second season for the event which includes many of the same participants as the regular shoots. Instead of standing in the same spot and shooting at targets, the archers in this event move and shoot at life-like 3D targets. The event is something that college programs have been doing for quite a few years.

  • Tennis teams sneak in matches

     SHEPHERDSVILLE  — Mother Nature continued to play tricks with spring sports.

    Tennis did not escape the elements. In fact, only a couple of matches escaped the weather prior to spring break.

    The Eagles went to Highview Park on Monday and came home with a 2-1 victory over Moore in its first match of the season.

    Gavin Simmerman lost to Moore’s Parker Hargrove in the lone singles match.
