  • East beats everybody but Mother Nature

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers beat everybody they faced last week except for Mother Nature.

    And they almost beat her.

    Getting in four games last week, Bullitt East put together a four-game winning streak for the second time this season. One of the wins came on Wednesday when the red and gold defeated defending Sixth Region champion Holy Cross 3-2, the only challenging game of the week.

  • Bullitt East splits pair of district contests

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After needing two days to defeat district rival Fern Creek, the Bullitt East Chargers put themselves behind the eight-ball as far as district play is concerned as they dropped a 3-2 decision at Jeffersontown on Thursday.

    The Chargers then did get to play on Friday night, beating North Oldham 10-4 in a game that was halted after six innings because of darkness.

    That action left Bullitt East with a 13-8 record overall heading into the final month of the regular season.

  • Eagles need 11 innings to defeat Mustangs 5-3

     HIGHVEIW -- If anyone in the local baseball world was shocked by Moore’s recent defeat of Bullitt Central to open district play, they should be surprised no more.

    It took everything the North Bullitt Eagles had to pull out a 5-3 victory in 11 innings.

    The victory left the Eagles in great shape to do what they’ve done since joining the 23rd District -- win the championship.

    After Dylan Kleitz pitched 9-plus spectacular innings, Alec Lush had to work out of a one-out jam in the 10th to keep the game going.

  • Cougars get key victory by beating Southern 3-1

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Desperately needing a win in district play, the Bullitt Central Cougars picked up a very important victory last Tuesday when they slipped past Southern 3-1.

    Bullitt Central put the ball in the hands of junior pitcher Garrison Ijames and he came through with a complete game victory, allowing just two hits and a solo run in the fifth inning. Ijames, who had struggled a week earlier in a district loss to Moore, struck out eight in this game and walked four.

  • Lady Chargers shine in inaugural Bullitt East Inv.

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Have track, will host.

    That seems to be the philosophy of Bullitt East track coach Lenny Raley. The program now has a solid track facility and for the second timie this spring the Charger program hosted a meet on Wednesday.

    This second effort was bigger and bolder with nine teams taking part in what was titled the Bullitt East Invitational. Raley even rented an electronic scoring and timing system that moved the meet along at a much faster pace than the first meet of the season had when there were only five teams taking part.

  • BC 7th, BE 15th at KHSAA state archery tourney

     LEXINGTON – It wasn’t exactly the score that the team was hoping for, but the Bullitt Central Cougars, with just one senior, finished seventh on Thursday at the KHSAA Kentucky State Archery Tournament at the Kentucky Basketball Academy.

    Led by the team’s lone senior, Andrew Dean who had a 292, the Cougars shot a final total of 3409, a total that was slightly off of the 3416 that the team shot in winning the Region Four Tournament ten days earlier.

  • BE softball picking up steam; NB wins second

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers played just two games last week, lost both, but according to head coach Ricky Hoffman, the team is playing better and are on the verge of even bigger things.

    Rain slowed the start of action last week and the Lady Chargers didn’t get on the field until Thursday against Eastern and it took eight innings before the Lady Eagles pulled out a 4-2 victory.

  • A horrible start sinks BC in district opener

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – One bad inning put the Bullitt Central Cougars behind the eight ball on Thursday and the maroon and gray could not recover as they dropped a key 23rd District game to Moore by a 7-3 score.

    In fact, in the only two games that the Cougars played last week, they were behind early. The only good news was that the team managed to rally on Friday and beat Thomas Nelson 8-3 on the road.

  • Eagles get an extra day to beat Southern

     HEBRON ESTATES – Brian Wise has been in coaching for a number of years.

    And just when you think we’ve seen it all… there is something new.

    The past week was a series of “I don’t know if I’ve ever seen that” moments for the veteran North Bullitt baseball coach.

    At the end of the day, North Bullitt got the win it needed — a victory over district foe Southern.
