  • Chargers have tough week

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers wrapped up the number seed for the upcoming 24th District Baseball Tournament early last week, but in two games at home as part of the Louisville Invitational Tournament, there were a pair of frustrating losses.

  • Down early, Lady Cougars rally past North 13-5

     HEBRON ESTATES – Two months ago, Bullitt Central softball coach Mike Phillips was frustrated this his team was letting mistakes snowball into more and more mistakes before the team was in such a hole that they mentally gave up.

    Now, the Lady Cougars have started to show a little maturity, as they are able to put miscues in the rearview mirror and play the game in the present.

  • Again it is 1-0 as Bullitt East slips past Mercy

     LOUISVILLE – Bullitt East vs. Mercy ranks as one of the top softball rivalries in the area, if not the closest.

    In the four seasons since the two programs were thrust into the 24th District, the two state powers have met seven times and seven times the games have been decided by a single run. Four times the final score has been 1-0.

    On Thursday, the two top-15 teams in the state clashed at Mercy and again it was fought tooth and nail before Bullitt East pulled out a 1-0 decision.

  • NB’s Vincent signs with Indiana Tech

     LOUISVILLE – Having friends in all the right places paid big dividends for North Bullitt senior Chayse Vincent as she found a volleyball home for the next four years at Indiana Tech, a college in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

    Recently, in a ceremony at the Mid-American Sports Academy in Jeffersontown, Vincent made it all official, signing the papers to play for the NAIA program.

  • Tredway heads to Spalding volleyball

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Rolling Hills Baptist volleyball program has won a lot of matches over the past four seasons and the talent level drew the attention of some area colleges.

    The Tornados, a school with only 32 students in the top 13 grades in northern Bullitt County, had never had an athlete sign with a college until recently when senior Emily Tredway signed to play at Spalding University in Louisville.

  • Regional tennis team play starts

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Few matches remain as tennis teams gear up for regional action on May 9.

    Bullitt East boys’ team will compete this week in the regional competition for the seven-member squads.

    In girls’ competition, Bullitt Central and North Bullitt will both compete on Monday in regional team championships.

    Individual play is next week.

    North Bullitt avenged an earlier 3-2 loss to Bullitt East on Monday.

    The host Eagles reversed the score.

  • Roach seeking new programs to lead

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Sometimes at the high school level, coaches and programs just need a change of scenery.

    A different point of view on how things should be done.

    With that in mind, Bullitt Central Lady Cougar head coach Kyle Roach stepped down from his position recently after four seasons at the helm. Roach is not closing the door on coaching again, perhaps even soon, but he felt that a new perspective was needed for all involved.

  • Lee steps down after 11 seasons

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There was really no surprise, but there was a lot of emotion last week when Bullitt Central basketball coach Joe Pat Lee announced that he was stepping down after 11 years at the helm of the program for which he once played.

    Lee had been thinking about making the move much earlier. The decision was actually made for him when he was named a new assistant principal at the school. The Bullitt County Board of Education does not allow principals to be coaches.

  • East drops first game, but ready for Mercy showdown

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Nobody expected the Bullitt East Lady Chargers to go undefeated this season.

    Plus, being up 6-0 midway through the fifth inning on Wednesday, nobody thought that the red and gold, ranked fifth in the state, would lose.

    But the team did lose on Wednesday, falling 8-7 at Martha Layne Collins. So, when the second point came true, the first one was out the window as the Lady Chargers lost for the first time after 16 straight wins to open the season.

  • BC, NB heading on a collision course for Monday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The showdown is all but set for the Bullitt Central and North Bullitt softball programs as the two programs head to a clash next Monday at North Bullitt for the top spot in the 23rd District Tournament.

    Bullitt Central already has lopsided wins over both Moore and Southern, by a combined 31-0 count. North Bullitt pounded Moore last week and will face Southern on Wednesday.
