High School Sports

  • Baseball continues to be successful locally

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Honors and awards are great.

    Making All-Star teams is great.

    However, those things are not the end all at all.

    There have been a lot of honors rolling in recently as we wrap up the spring sports season and lots of Bullitt Countians have earned recognition. All of it greatly deserved.

    But, awards never won a game. That is especially true for individual honors in team sports.

  • After five sports at BC, Gilbert to Brescia for soccer

        SHEPHERDSVILLE -- As a senior at Bullitt Central this past school year, senior Kassi Gilbert played five sports and played them all well.
        But when it came time to select one sport to participate in at the next level, the choice was not difficult -- soccer.
        “Definitely soccer was my favorite sport,” the senior said recently. “I’ve played it the longest and enjoy it the most.”

  • Strong local links in annual summer All-Star contests

        LOUISVILLE – A record number of Bullitt County athletes and coaches -- seven -- participated last weekend in the annual East-West Junior All-Star game at Bellarmine University’s Knights Hall.
        The contest was conducted by the Kentucky High School Coaches Association.

  • Pitching gem ends with Campbell Co. up 1-0

        LEXINGTON – Bullitt East’s sweet post-season baseball run came to a bitter end on Friday as the Chargers dropped a 1-0 decision in nine innings to Campbell County in the semi-finals of the Rawlings/KHSAA Kentucky State Baseball Tournament at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.
        The game was a masterful pitching duel between Bullitt East senior Kyle McKinley and Campbell County’s Alex Fransen, a senior.

  • Sharpe, Breeden almost pull off upset

     LOUISVILLE – The Kentucky All-Stars haven’t had much luck beating their counterparts from Indiana recently, but with the help of Tyler Sharpe and Wayne Breeden, the 2016 squad made a strong run at their bigger counterparts on Sunday at Bellarmine University’s Knights Hall.

  • East’s Maros, Salyer in All-State softball games

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A pair of Bullitt East softball standouts will participate this weekend in the Kentucky Prep Softball East/West All-Star Weekend at Georgetown College.

    Lady Charger seniors Shelby Maros, a centerfielder, and Emily Salyer, a second baseman, will be members of the West Senior All-Stars and will take part in two games on Saturday and one on Sunday. Maros has already signed to play at Southern Indiana University.

  • Patience pays off as BE beats Scott 6-5

     LEXINGTON – Patience. Don’t leave home without it.

    Bullitt East coach Jeff Bowles has been through the baseball wars and knows one thing for sure -- patience is a virtue when it comes to big games.

    The coach stood by that mantra on Saturday, sticking with pitcher Troy O’Brien despite the senior giving up five runs in the first two innings. O’Brien would end up pitching for six innings, not giving up another run, giving his offense a chance to rally.

  • BE squares off with Camels in semi-finals

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Most high school sports teams have their banquets after the season is completed.

    Not the Bullitt East Chargers. Not this season.

    Because of the team’s deep run in the post-season, coach Jeff Bowles’ team had its earlier scheduled banquet on Monday of this week. Of course, there was a lot to celebrate as Bullitt East is still alive heading into the final week of the season, playing in the state semi-finals on Friday.

  • Bullitt East rallies to win opener 6-3

        LEXINGTON – Exploding for four runs in the fifth inning and then adding two more in the sixth, the Bullitt East Chargers rallied from an early hole to beat the Oldham County Colonels 6-3 on Friday in the opening round of the Rawling’s/Kentucky State Baseball Tournament at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.
        The win advanced the Chargers to Saturday’s quarter-finals where they were set to take on Scott County, a 1-0 winner in eight innings over Caldwell County later on Friday.

  • BE’s Sharpe in Kentucky-Indiana series

     LOUISVILLE – Bullitt East senior Tyler Sharpe will go where so many Charger standouts have gone before as he will play this week with the Kentucky All-Stars in the annual series against the Indiana All-Stars.

    It was just three years ago that the Bullitt East duo of Derek Willis and Rusty Troutman played for the Kentucky squad. More than a dozen Bullitt East players have been members of the Kentucky All-Stars on either the boys’ or girls’ side.
