  • 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.

  • TENNIS: Kruse poised for return to state

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- With one team already having a match on the books, tennis players — like most spring sports — are battling through the normal weather issues this year.

    In terms of players looking to advance to the state tournament in May, Bullitt East’s Savannah Kruse is looking to make a return to the big show, something she did as a freshman.

    The North Bullitt girls’ appears to have another deep lineup with experience and look to return as one of the top teams in the Sixth Region.


  • Huge week for Roby, Wyatt in college athletics

     LOUISVILLE – Former Bullitt East standout Meghan Roby continues to be one of the top track athletes in the NCAA Division II after earning All-American honors for Bellarmine University this past weekend at the Indoor Track Championships in Pittsburg, Kansas.

    Already, Roby has been named the Great Lakes Valley Conference Female Track Athlete of the Year three times – twice indoors and once outdoors (with on outdoor season still ahead of her this spring).

  • High-scoring Andres headed to play for Southern Indiana

     HEBRON ESTATES – North Bullitt senior Katlyn Andres never saw a shot on the soccer field that she didn’t think she could get past the goalie.

    That confidence carried over to the Lady Eagle standout scoring 158 goals in 91 games in her four years on the North Bullitt varsity.

    With numbers and talent like that, colleges come calling and that was certainly the case for Andres who recently signed to play at college soccer at NCAA Division II Southern Indiana University in Evansville.

  • Holman set to continue career as goalie at Trevecca Nazarene

     HEBRON ESTATES -- To play the position of goalie, a soccer player must never show any fear.

    To watch Delayna Holman protect the net for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles, you would see that she definitely had no fear on the field.

    And that is why Amber Mink called Holman the best goalie in the Sixth Region.

    As she looks toward the next step in life, Holman will be fulfilling a dream of playing soccer at the next level.

  • Back to Back to Back National Champions

     MOUNT WASHINGTON-- For some Eastside cheerleaders, winning is all they know.

    For all three years of their middle school careers, they’ve earned the top spot in the country and will again represent the United States in the second annual International Cheer Union (ICU) Junior World Championships in April.

    “It was kind of unbelievable,” eighth grader Alex Contreras said of the win. “We worked so hard all year and then we just did our very best. That was probably our best performance there. It was really great.”
