  • East baseball stays hot; wins three of four in full week

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Nobody expected the Bullitt East Chargers’ baseball team to go undefeated this season and that includes head coach Jeff Bowles.

    Still, after six straight wins to open the season, you do start to dream of winning every game. But that is just not the way it normally works in baseball.

    The dream ended on Friday when the Chargers suffered a 9-8 defeat at the hands of visiting Ballard. The loss came a day after the red and gold had beaten DeSales by the same 9-8 score.

  • BC wins 4th Region archery title; BE second

     HIGHVIEW – It was once again a one-two finish for Bullitt County teams over the weekend at the Region Four Archery Tournament at Moore High School, but this time it was Bullitt Central hoisting the big trophy and Bullitt East the runner-up medals, reversing last year’s finish.

    The competition belonged to the Cougars all along as coach Dustin Metcalf’s team shot to a final score of 3,416 to win by an impressive 82 points over Bullitt East, which finished at 3,334 (3,600 is a perfect score).

  • North learning as wins keep coming

     HEBRON ESTATES – The ups and downs of a high school baseball coach.

    Over the course of a 36-game schedule, there can be plenty of highs and just as many lows — especially when dealing with a lot of kids without varsity experience.

    Just ask North Bullitt Eagle skipper Brian Wise. Sometimes it is enough to pull your hair out.

    It was a week where the Eagles played it tight until the end against a pair of perennial Sixth Region contenders.

  • Central goes 2-3 in a long week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was an uneven week of baseball for the Bullitt Central Cougars as coach G.J. Moore’s team won the first two and then dropped the final three including two games in a ‘triangle’ event at Corbin High School on Saturday.

    That action left Bullitt Central with a 3-4 record after the first two weeks of the regular season. On Monday, the Cougars were rained out of game against a visiting team from Chicago, Lake Zurich, that is spending their spring break in the Louisville area playing different teams.

  • North Bullitt girls slip past BC 3-2 in tennis

     LOUISVILLE — Getting some cooperative weather is also a key to the early weeks of the spring tennis season.

    Week two was certainly more agreeable with local players.

    In the first intercounty girls match, North Bullitt got past Bullitt Central as the final court came down to a tiebreaker.

    In singles, Shanna Blocker defeated Rebecca Price in a three-set battle. The North Bullitt junior scored a 6-4, 6-7, 1-0 win over Price, who advanced to the state tournament last season.

  • BE’s Kessler signs with Campbellsville football

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Winning an open ‘casting call’ for a quarterback two years ended up paying big dividends for Bullitt East senior Zak Kessler recently when he signed to play football at Campbellsville University.

  • Eagles win another state Push/Pull championship

     HEBRON ESTATES -- For the third time over the past five years, North Bullitt won the Kentucky State Push/Pull Weightlifting championships recently, an event that the Eagles hosted.

    North Bullitt won both the varsity competition as well as being the best finishing team among the Class 5-A (football classification) schools taking part.

    Bullitt Central also competed in the meet and the Cougars had the top girls’ squad as well as winning the combined title with the most points amongst those schools having both boys and girls.

  • Believe It!! Bullitt Co. to host a track meet

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Yes Virginia, Bullitt County can host a high school track meet.

    After four seasons in track purgatory, all three local track programs will get to run on home soil on Tuesday when Bullitt East hosts an All-Comers Meet that will include Bullitt Central and North Bullitt along with Moore High School.

    Last year’s senior class of track athletes never got to run a meet within Bullitt County as the overall condition of the old asphalt tracks at all three schools was considered unsafe the past four years.

  • Track season is off and running locally

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Spring Break is still on the horizon and from day-to-day you never know what the weather will be like, but despite all of that, the high school track season is now underway.

  • BE’s Bowles, Sharpe join Hall of Fame

     LOUISVILLE – On Jan. 14, Bullitt East baseball head coach Jeff Bowles and associate head coach Craig Sharpe were both inducted into the Kentucky High School Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame.

    The two have worked together for 14 seasons with the Charger program and have accounted for 341 wins against 163 losses.

    At one point, the Charger program under Bowles and Sharpe won 11 consecutive district titles. The program has also won three regional titles and twice reached the semi-finals of the Kentucky State Baseball Tournament.
