  • 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.

  • 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.

    “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.”

  • BE’s Messer to play football at Millikin University

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Just call Bullitt East senior Josh Messer a trailblazer.

    Actually, Messer did more of the recruiting. He signed up on an online recruiting site and was discovered by Big Blue coaches. They saw film of Messer and initiated contact.

    Playing at home for the first time in a regional tournament in four years, the Cougars fell behind Jeffersontown 27-8 midway through the second quarter. Bullitt Central rallied to within 28-22 at halftime and when Jacob Mann drained a three-pointer to open the second half, the maroon and gray were within three points.
