  • East’s defense struggles in loss to third-ranked team

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers hit the road over the weekend and for the first time this season, the road hit back.

    Playing in the Best of the West event at Buchanan Park in Bowling Green, the state’s fourth-ranked team dropped two of three games, including a 9-0 decision to Madisonville North Hopkins, a game in which the Lady Chargers made six errors and were never in the game.

  • Curry moves from freshmen to varsity

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – When he was 10 years old, Jessie Curry knew he wanted to be a head basketball coach someday. He just didn’t think it happen so soon.

    At the age of 26, Curry was hired on Friday to take over the reigns of the Bullitt Central Cougars, taking over for Joe Pat Lee who stepped down after 11 seasons at the helm.

  • NB adds two additional wins to impressive record

      HEBRON ESTATES -- It’s all about fine tuning entering the final week of the regular season for the defending Sixth Region champs.

    While wins and losses aren’t as important right now, North Bullitt baseball coach Brian Wise wants to keep positive momentum going.

    With only two games last week, the Eagles got a big 6-0 victory over Collins.

  • BE wins two of three in own Charger Challenge

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – It didn’t rain, something that has happened often in the past and is sort of a running joke around the Bullitt East baseball program, so the Charger Challenge without a hitch on Friday and Saturday.

    The only negative for the event was that the host team lost in the final game, dropping a 2-0 decision to North Oldham. The Mustangs finished without a loss, winning all three games they played.

  • Central struggles after long lay-off

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After not playing for 11 days, the Bullitt Central Cougars returned to baseball action on Saturday and dropped a 14-1 decision to visiting Henry County.

    The Wildcats had been able to play the night before, but Bullitt Central had not seen live pitching or hitting in almost two weeks and it showed. Five Cougar pitchers walked 13 batters in the six-inning game.

  • BC’s Rippy signs to cheer with Morehead’s All-Girls’ program

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- For some high school seniors, making a college selection is easy -- especially if you make that decision as a freshman.

    For Bullitt Central’s Miranda Rippy it might not have been that cut and dry, but she says that as a freshman she was positive that she wanted to attend Morehead State University and join the school’s national power cheerleading program.

  • Duvall may not be going to UK amidst turmoil

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – The upheaval in the University of Kentucky’s women’s basketball program took another bad turn last week when Bullitt East junior Lindsey Duvall, who had committed to the Lady Wildcats back in November, re-opened the recruiting process.

    The news was first reported by Brett McCormick of the All-Star Girls Report on news from her father, Tom, and then Bullitt East head coach Chris Stallings.

  • State Tourney in Lexington

     LEXINGTON -- The three Bullitt County players who advanced to the Kentucky State Tennis Tournament after last week’s Sixth Region Tournament in Louisville, will begin play on Thursday.

    The two tournaments will be based at the University of Kentucky Tennis Center, but the girls’ will play on Thursday and Friday at Shilleto Park which is also located in Lexington before shifting to the UK courts for the final rounds on Saturday.

  • Three local players headed to state tourney

     LOUISVILLE -- One player expected to return to the state tournament.

    Another had that as a possibility.

    And another wasn’t even the top singles player on her team prior to the start of this season.

    It doesn’t matter the pre-season talk. Bullitt East’s Jacob Staples and Savannah Kruse, along with Bullitt Central’s Rebecca Price will be heading to Lexington this week to participate in the state tennis tournament.

  • North stays hot...blazing hot...with three more wins

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Players and coaches may not think about it but the scoreboard operator can play an important role in a baseball game.

    In a week in which North Bullitt routinely swept through three games, something out of the ordinary happened in the 12-1 win over Fern Creek.

    With no outs in the top of the fourth inning Thursday, Blake Benz was on third base and Brady Keehn was on first after a two-RBI single.
