  • BE’s Brown jumps to pair of runner-up finishes

     LEXINGTON – A pair of second place finishes in the long jump and triple jump was quite a day for Bullitt East senior TeeKay Brown in the Kentucky Class 3-A Track and Field Championships on Saturday at the University of Kentucky.

    In fact, it was the best finish ever for a Bullitt County athlete in those two events.

    Still, with all of that good news, there was a tinge of frustration for Brown in that she could not get to the top of the podium.

  • Late rally pushes BE past Butler

      SHIVELY – Scoring three times in the top of the seventh inning, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers exorcised some past demons on Monday, beating Butler 4-1 in the first round of the Sixth Region Softball Tournament.

    In each of the past two seasons the Bearettes have frustrated Bullitt East in the post-season, knocking the red and gold out of post-season play each of the past two seasons including a 4-3 setback a year ago. Butler had played in the last four Sixth Region finals including an 8-2 loss to Bullitt East back in 2012.

  • Lady Eagles outrun rain, Iroquois in opener

     HEBRON ESTATES -- The message was pretty simple -- don’t worry about the opponent; just worry about ourselves.

    Facing an Iroquois team with a 3-9 record on the season, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles took care of business in the opener of the Sixth Region softball tournament by a count of 17-0.

    The biggest question of the day wasn’t the outcome of the ball game. Instead, it was weather the four softball sites could all get their fields ready to play after steady rains.

  • North Bullitt baseball earns district three-peat

    HEBRON ESTATES -- When he hit the first one, Chase McKenzie ran as quick as he could to first base.
        But, when the second one left the bat, the senior knew it was gone.
        On an usual atmospheric day at North Bullitt High School, the winds were blowing out and the Eagles were lighting up the scoreboard.
        For the third straight year, North Bullitt captured the 23rd District baseball title with a 16-5 thumping of the Southern Trojans.

  • Eagles sweep 23rd District diamond events

    HEBRON ESTATES -- During his first three years at the helm, Mike Nally has been known to do a few unorthodox things as manager of the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.
        As the program has regained some of its past success, Nally said he sees the difference.
        Using the regular season to build to the post-season, North Bullitt defeated top-seeded Southern 5-0 Wednesday to capture the 23rd District softball title.

  • Three tough draws for local teams this week

    SHEPHERDSVILLE-- Everybody looks at tournament draws and sees different things.
        Some see the first-round opponent while others see how tough winning three straight games might be.
        In the one-game view, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles got the draw of a lifetime when they were paired up with Iroquois, a team that played just 12 games this season and won just three. One of the wins came in the opening game of the 22nd District Tournament when they smoked Doss 24-8. The Lady Raiders then lost 16-0 to Butler in the district final.

  • J-Town rallies past East

    JEFFERSONTOWN-- For the first time in a dozen years, a team had all the answers for Bullitt East in the championship game of a district tournament.
        Jeffersontown, answering Bullitt East scoring with runs in the bottom of each of the first two innings, pulled away late to win the 24th District title on Wednesday with a 7-4 victory, snapping the Chargers' run of 11 straight district titles over three different alignments.

  • East finishes with strong 4-1 week

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It wasn’t a perfect week, but the Bullitt East Chargers closed out the 2015 baseball regular season with a strong week as the red and gold won four of the final five games including the last three in a row.

    Bullitt East will now head into this week’s 24th District Tournament with a 21-14 record. The Chargers played Fern Creek on Tuesday and with a victory will move into Wednesday’s championship game against Jeffersontown at 6 p.m. at Jeffersontown.

  • NB gains ‘mo’ with perfect closing week

     HEBRON ESTATES -- If North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise had the opportunity to write the script for the final week of the regular season, it couldn’t have been much better than what actually happened.

    Coming off the only week this season where the bats were a little weak, North Bullitt completed a 25-11 regular slate with four straight victories over quality opponents.

    Besides the bats coming alive once again, Wise was able to give catcher Chance Egnor and centerfielder Daulton Walls a little time off to mend some slight injuries.
