  • Eagles end season on impressive note

     HEBRON ESTATES - Securing what appears to be a regular season school record of 23 victories is pretty impressive.

    But the North Bullitt Eagle baseball team has its sights set on the overall season record of 26 victories.

    Thanks to a strong 3-1 finish in the regular season, the Eagles entered post-season play on Monday with an impressive 23-10 record, second best in the Sixth Region.

  • East closes with win over Eastern

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After a sluggish start to the week and then some bad weather, the Bullitt East Chargers rebounded late last week to add to more victories to the total before the regular season came to a close on Saturday.

    The only loss last week came on Tuesday as the Chargers dropped a 4-2 decision to Christian Academy despite playing at home.

  • Post-season on the diamonds starts Monday

     LEXINGTON – Bullitt East senior Hunter Norris didn’t have as long a stay at the Kentucky State Tennis Championships as he would have liked, but it was still a good way to end the season.

         Paired up against freshman Anthony Bosch of Covington Catholic in the first round of the 64-player draw, Norris lost the match 6-4, 6-2.

  • Bullitt Countians claim five regional titles

     LOUISVILLE – The move up to Class 3-A in track might not have been quite as painful as first thought, at least on the girls’ side, as both Bullitt East and North Bullitt made strong showings in Thursday’s Region 3 Meet at Male High School.

  • Lady Chargers have won 9 of 10 down the stretch

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers continued their late season revival with four more wins last week, but the team did miss out on a game with a top-20 opponent because of the heavy rain on Saturday.

    The four wins mean that the Lady Chargers have won nine of their last ten outings. The team is now 24-8 as they enter play in the final week of the regular season.

  • Two games in two weeks makes it tough on NB

     HEBRON ESTATES – No softball coach in the state wants good weather this week more than North Bullitt’s Mike Nally.

    Over the previous two weeks, the Lady Eagles have been able to play on two games. With just one week remaining in the regular season, the green and gold definitely need to get in some work before entering 23rd District play next week when they will play Bullitt Central in a semi-final round game in Shepherdsville.

  • North gets the best of PRP baseball...again

     HEBRON ESTATES - With a week to go in the regular season, the bats are popping, the pitchers are throwing strikes and the wins are rolling in.

    For the North Bullitt Eagles, things are coming together at just the right time.

    After starting the week out with a big district win over Bullitt Central, head coach Brian Wise’s squad followed that up with victories over Shelby County, Pleasure Ridge Park and Fern Creek.

  • Chargers stay hot, but rain halts play Saturday

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Not every team plays every game at the highest level – not even the Bullitt East baseball program.

    However, the recent weeks head coach Jeff Bowles’ team has played just well enough to beat the mid-level teams on its schedule while saving it’s best baseball for the best foes.

    That was again the case last week as the red and gold won three more games. Bullitt East has now won eight of its last nine outings to move to 23-6 overall with a week remaining in the regular season.

  • Tough loss early haunts BC baseball for a week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – When is a loss more than a single loss? When it comes in the eighth inning against your arch-rival.

    That is what happened to Bullitt Central last week. On Monday, the Cougars played well against North Bullitt, but lost to a run in the bottom of the eighth inning.

  • There was an All-County track meet--sort of

    BARDSTOWN-- After being rained out on their original date and then not being able to get everyone together later in the week for the Bardstown Invitational, the three Bullitt County track programs all jumped into an All-Comers Meet at Thomas Nelson High School last Thursday for what was listed as the All-Bullitt County Meet.
        The All-County designation was a little misleading as six other schools were also taking part in the meet. Plus, since the event was added to everyone's schedule at the last minute, not all of the teams were at full strength.
