  • Records fall as North Bullitt finishes regular season with walk-off victory

     HEBRON ESTATES -- The team ended the regular season with the most wins in school history at 27.

    Ryan Henson completed a perfect season at 10-0 on the hill for a school record.

    Logan Wyatt drove in 54 runs and Daulton Walls, Henson and Wyatt all ended up hitting over .400.

    And over the past two seasons, the senior class is 13-2 in post-season and 11-2 in elimination games in winning consecutive Sixth Region baseball titles.

    But, for the North Bullitt Eagles, that was then and this is now.

  • Coach Couch hired for East

  • BE’s Roby in complete control in pair of wins

  • North starts fast, ends early over Central

      HIGHVIEW – If the North Bullitt Eagles had any nervousness about starting the post-season, they hid it very well on Monday as they crushed Bullitt Central 10-0 in the first game of the 23rd District Baseball Tournament at Moore High School.

    When the two teams collided in the regular season, it was a close game before North Bullitt scored in the top of the seventh inning to beat the Cougars 7-6 after trailing 5-0 early.

  • East’s baseball squad beats Whitefield 16-0

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – By the very nature of the beast, the first round of any district tournament in Kentucky is never easy for coaches. One loss and even the best of regular seasons can be made meaningless.

    Still, this season, Bullitt East baseball coach Jeff Bowles slept like a baby Sunday night before his Chargers squared off with 24th District rival Whitefield Academy. The Chargers had beaten the Wildcats 14-0 in their regular season meeting and it could have been worse.

  • NB’s Sutherland signs with Franklin

     HEBRON ESTATES – A phone call during a winter snowstorm will be shaping the future for North Bullitt Lady Eagle basketball player Krista Sutherland for at least the next few years.

  • BE’s Breeden headed to North Greenville

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A chance meeting with a basketball coach from North Greenville University in January recently paid big dividends for Bullitt East senior Ethan Breeden.

    Breeden’s father, Mike, was sitting in the stands at the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament when he struck up a conversation with an assistant coach from North Greenville as the coach was watching Charger hoops standout Tyler Sharpe. By the end of the talk, the assistant basketball coach was setting up a contact between the Breeden family and the school’s golf coach.

  • State tennis a good learning experience

     LEXINGTON -- Three Bullitt Countians were part of the Republic Bank/KHSAA State Tennis Tournament on Thursday.

    Kruse cruised through the match, winning 6-2, 6-0.

    In the next round, she ran into fifth-seeded Allison Quammen, a senior from Lexington Catholic.

    Quammen won 6-1, 6-0.
