  • Lady Eagles ready for run at Sixth Region title

     HEBRON ESTATES – Seldom have the expectations for the North Bullitt girls’ soccer program been as high as the hopes are for 2017.

    Even after a serious setback, head coach Amber Mink and her team still fell that they can hoist a regional championship trophy for the first time in school history.

  • East volleyball battling youth and inexperience

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After years of being the team given the best chance to force national power Mercy to at least break a sweat, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers have a somewhat different mindset this season.

    A year after reaching the 24th District final, and losing to Mercy for the fourth straight season, the Lady Chargers are looking to replace five starters this fall. Mercy may not have to break a sweat this year.

  • Lady Chargers reloading for run at 6th Region title

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Sometimes changes is good.

    That is certainly what Bullitt East girls’ soccer coach Steve Gentry is hoping as his program enters the 2017 season with a new philosophy.

    Over the past several seasons, the Lady Chargers have had some of the top individual talent in the area. The line goes back to Lexi Higgenbotham, Meghan Roby and Alnee Tutson all the way to Christian Foster. The game plan was to feed those players and to let those players dictate the flow of the game.

  • Senior-laden BE thinking titles

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers probably won’t be the best team in the state this fall, but coach Mike Branger’s 2017 squad could well be the oldest team in Kentucky.

    With 11 seniors on the roster this season, the Chargers have both experience and talent. Not all of the seniors will start, but they form the core unit of what should be the best team Brangers has had since Bullitt East moved to the Sixth Region in 2012.

    This is Brangers’ 14th season at the helm of the program and there are lofty expectations for the fall.

  • Backyard basketball for a good cause

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Now in its 13th year, the Matt Allen Scholarship program hands out awards each summer to college-bound seniors from all three Bullitt County high schools.

    Recently, the program awarded ten scholarships. The recipients included Morgan Gentry (Bullitt East), Savannah Glass (Bullitt East), Sydney Hill (Bullitt East), Kelsin Kemble (Bullitt Central), Sarah Lyons (Bullitt Central), Emma Pressley (Bullitt East),  Rebecca Price (Bullitt Central), Hannah Robinson (North Bullitt), Zachary Taylor (Bullitt East) and Rebecca Vogt (North Bullitt).

  • Jones excelled for BE batting in the number nine position

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – For Bullitt East senior baseball player Zach Jones, being one of four players from the Charger program to be heading to Spalding University in the fall was not any type of master plan.

    In fact, Jones says that if he was the only player making that transition that it would have been just fine also. He would have decided on the Golden Eagles as a solo signee.

  • Riordan ready to continue catching for Golden Eagles

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior Jared Riordan might not have the prototypical size for a catcher, but what he lacks in size he more than makes up for in desire as well as experience.

    That made it a no-brainer for the Spalding baseball coaches to take notice of Riordan right off the bat. The Golden Eagles were not looking for high school catchers to turn into position players. They wanted a full-time catcher and Riordan fit the bill.

  • BE’s Henn signs to play for Kentucky Wesleyan hoops Wesleyan to play basketball

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – As a freshman, Bullitt East basketball standout Kirstie Henn recalled sitting down with Lady Charger head coach Chris Stallings and telling him then that she wanted to play college basketball.

    That dream came to reality this spring when the senior signed to play at the next level for NCAA Division II Kentucky Wesleyan located in Owensboro.

  • A few news and notes as we head to fall time

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – As hard as it might be for some of us to believe, tomorrow will be the first day of August.

    That means that the high school sports season is pretty much already on top of us. All fall sports teams were allowed to start conditioning/practice on July 15, although, with that date falling on a Saturday, some did not start until the 17th.

  • Reece could be part of an All-BE outfield at Spalding

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – When it comes time for that big college destination decision, one key aspect always comes down to location.

    Some high school seniors want to be a little further from home while some others would prefer to stay in the area. That might even be more important for an athlete, as being close to home can mean family being able to continue following the exploits on the field.
