High School Sports

  • A long weekend for NB at Harrison County

     HEBRON ESTATES – A year ago, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles surprised themselves a little bit when they traveled to Harrison County for the Vernon Bibb Memorial Tournament and came home with three wins and the championship trophy.

    This spring, North Bullitt got another surprise at the same tournament. Unfortunately, this year, it was more a shocking surprise as the team came home with three losses and nothing to show for the weekend.

  • BC softball again losing injury battle

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – If it was not for bad news, Bullitt Central softball coach Mike Phillips would really have no news to report at all.

    For the second straight season injuries are playing a key role in the team struggling on the field. Already, Phillips and the Lady Cougars have lost their top two catchers this season as both Brooklyn Benefield and Bethany Mann are out with injuries. Benefield with a broken wrist that will have her on the sideline for up to six weeks while Mann will miss at least two weeks with a knee injury.

  • Lady Chargers split four in Florida

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There were a couple of disappointing stretches for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers on their annual spring break trip to the Disney Spring Training complex in Florida.

    It was sort of a bad doughnut week for the red and gold. There were losses surrounding the week, but with two wins in the middle.

  • Eagles play like Ripken over spring break

     MYRTLE BEACH -- The weather was great and the play was near perfect.

    The North Bullitt Eagles returned to the Cal Ripken Experience in South Carolina and returned home with a 5-0 record.

    You can’t pick your opponent and head coach Brian Wise was more worried about his team than who sat in the other dugout.

    He liked what he saw. And the results came against some quality teams.

    On Monday, the Eagles opened with a 6-5 victory over Bishop Watterson of Ohio.

  • East struggles in week at Disney

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Between the team’s first and second games at the Disney Spring Training facility, Bullitt East was presented a trophy for making the spring break trip to central Florida for ten straight years.

    At that point, the Chargers probably should have come home. The red and gold had beaten Passaic, New Jersey on that Sunday but after getting the award, Bullitt East lost four straight games. That made it the least successful on field success story over the ten-year period.

  • BC baseball still seeking answers

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was a nice trip.

    That was about the best news that Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore could report after his team returned home after a spring break trip to the Panama City Beach Bash. It was the first trip out of the area for the Cougars since Moore became the head coach.

    Unfortunately, on the field, the Cougars lost all four games and in some of those games they were not competitive.

  • Parsons ready to be front and 'center' for Bulldogs

    SHEPHERDSVILLE-- Bullitt East football player Justin Parsons put all of his eggs in one basket when it came to getting a college opportunity and it paid off recently when the senior signed to continue playing football at the next level for Union College in Barbourville, Kentucky.
        While Parsons would have gone to a larger school and just been a student, he decided that if he was going to continue playing football it would be at Union. That was the only school that he sent a tape too and the only school he visited to talk football.

  • Young area golfers start season strong

    LOUISVILLE -- The weather has not exactly been conducive to golf, but a handful of young local athletes tried to get a jump on the season recently when they competed in the Musselman-Dunn Golf Tour/KIA Match Play Championships at Seneca Golf Course.
        Many of the same players will compete on that tour throughout the spring and summer before wrapping up play and concentrating on the high school season which will start in the middle of July.

  • Rogers opts for football then selects the Bulldogs

    MOUNT WASHINGTON-- For most high school football players, the first step in the recruiting process is deciding on the level of play that best fits your ability.
        For Bullitt East senior Brandon Rogers there turned out to be a step that he had to make before he started shuffling through all the recruiting pitches. First, Rogers had to decide if he wanted to play football at the next level.

  • Softball teams still looking to get handle on the weather

     HEBRON ESTATES – Both North Bullitt and Bullitt East played two softball games last week, unfortunately, they didn’t get to play each other.

    The only meeting of the regular season between the two county rivals was scheduled for Mount Washington on Thursday, but a heavy downpour at mid-afternoon that day washed out any hope of the game being played even with the fact that it had rained the previous night.
