  • Bulliit East claims state dance title

     MOUNT WASHINGTON — It’s unusual for a young team to be the best in the state for any sport. It’s even more unusual when no Bullitt County high school has ever won the state title for a dance competition.

    That didn’t stop the Bullitt East Dance Team from becoming the Grand State Champions at the 10th annual Kentucky Dance Coaches Association competition.

    “It’s pretty awesome,” captain Keiley Sewell said.

  • Two teams manage to beat last week’s snow

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

    Tennis did not escape the elements but one boys’ team beat the snow and another got the chance to play after the snow.

    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.

  • Lady Cougar softball looking to escape from a terrible funk

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central softball coach Mike Phillips will be the first to tell you that his team hasn’t been very good in recent years.

    The last time the Lady Cougars had a winning record was in 2013 when that squad finished with a 20-8 mark. Over the past four years, there have been just 29 wins and 81 losses.

    Last year the team slipped to 5-20.

  • Cougars sweep both team Archery titles

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Already one of the top archery teams in the state this season in NASP competition, Bullitt Central proved equally adept at KHSAA competition on Saturday, capturing both the boys’ and the girls’ division at the Region Four Championships at Bullitt East.

  • A new era is set to start for Lady Charger softball

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – When the 2017 softball season ended for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers, it was expected that there would be one more year in this ‘era’ for the program.

    Instead, it’s a new era for the red and gold and head coach Ricky Hoffman after standout pitcher/hitter Taylor Roby decided over the summer to graduate from Bullitt East and enroll at the University of Louisville in January, bypassing her senior season with the Lady Chargers.

    The good news is that Hoffman has kept his spirits up.

  • East girls open by beating BC

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- The Bullitt East tennis teams had a good week on the courts.

    For the Lady Chargers, coach Chris Marsh saw his team win 4-1 over Bullitt Central on Monday and 5-0 over Southern on Wednesday.

    In its season opener, Bullitt East won four of the five courts.

    Savannah Kruse defeated Kat Davenport 8-3 on court one singles. On court three, Jette Dahlmeier defeated Lady Cougar Savannah Price 9-7 in the closest match of the day.

  • Eagles looking for another winning season under Wise

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Entering his 12th season at the helm of the North Bullitt Eagle baseball program, Brian Wise has never been so uncertain.

     But, yet, he is as excited as ever to get the season started.

     Returning just two varsity starters, Wise said that doesn’t change the mission of winning a district title and advancing in the regional tournament with the ultimate goal of making his third trip to Lexington.

     “I really don’t know what to expect,

  • BC looking to get healthy in order to excel this spring

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore might have missed his real calling – being a doctor.

    Over the past several seasons, injuries have hampered his team and 2018 seems to following the same pattern.

    When the season starts on Monday, two of Moore’s best players will be nursing injuries.

  • Chargers fueled in ‘18 by early exit in ‘17

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Sometimes coaches and fans – and sometimes opposing coaches -- don’t always see the world from the same perspective.

    A year ago, the Bullitt East Chargers won 20 games for the tenth consecutive season, but it really was a campaign that long-time head coach Jeff Bowles would just as soon forget.

    For the first time since the program shifted to the Sixth Region starting with the 2006 season, the Chargers did not advance out of district play. The red and gold suffered a frustrating 5-4 loss to Fern Creek in the semi-finals.

  • SOFTBALL: NB can be regional contender

     HEBRON ESTATES – After one season as an assistant coach in the program, Chad Laswell have moved up one seat with the North Bullitt softball program, taking over as head coach.

    Laswell replaces Neal Hornback who was with the team for just one season. The Lady Eagles went 8-24 last spring, but did beat Bullitt Central and then Southern to claim a third straight 23rd District title.

    When the head coaching position opened, Laswell thought about it and he got a lot of encouragement from the girls.
