  • Lady Chargers need lots of hits to be undefeated

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After starting the season with six straight wins in which they allowed only nine runs, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers needed 17 hits and almost three hours to get its seventh straight victory.

    Getting the schedule and the weather to cooperate on just one day last week, the red and gold played host to Meade County on Thursday, a day before the team was set to leave for Florida and its annual spring break trip.

    In the end, Bullitt East pushed across a two-out run in the bottom of the seventh inning to beat the Lady Waves 10-9.

  • Lady Cougars are still struggling

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The rough start to the softball season at Bullitt Central didn’t get any smoother last week as the Lady Cougars struggled through three games, dropping all three to fall to 2-5 for the season.

    In all three of the losses last week the Lady Cougars gave up runs in the first inning and except for a 2-2 tie that lasted two innings against Elizabethtown on Monday, the maroon and gray never could bounce back.

  • East heads to Florida after beating BC 8-0

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It was get away day for Bullitt East on Thursday and the Chargers made the most it, beating arch-rival Bullitt Central 8-0.

    A day later head coach Jeff Bowles and his team headed to Florida for their annual pilgrimage to the Wide World of Sports complex at Walt Disney World, the spring training home of the Atlanta Braves.

    Before leaving, Bowles got four of his pitchers work against Bullitt Central. The coach was forced into that as the team played just one other game during the week.

  • East’s Patton hurls no-hitter in win over Panthers

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After the opening days of the high school baseball season, Bullitt East head coach Jeff Bowles wasn’t exactly pleased with the way things were going.

    That all changed on Friday when Charger senior pitcher Chase Patton threw a no-hitter against traditional power Elizabethtown. That brightened the outlook for the veteran coach as his team got a 3-0 victory.

    That win lifted the Chargers to 4-2 for the season heading into the last week at home before the team heads out over the weekend for Florida and spring break baseball.

  • Central’s hitting still on the cold side

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With the bad weather this winter, Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore was worried his team’s hitting would trail the pitching, at least early in the season.

    The worries turned out to be well founded as the Cougars struggled to make contact over the first 10 days of the season. The lack of offense led to a 1-4 start to the season.

  • Eagles start the baseball season 1-2

     HEBRON ESTATES - Forget the snow. Ignore the cool breeze. It’s time for baseball.

    The North Bullitt Eagles took the field on Tuesday in the first game of the season.

    After the opening win, the Eagles would finish the first week with a 1-2 record. But head coach Brian Wise is still very encouraged with his squad.

    In the opener, junior Jacob Kelly got all the support he would need in the first inning as the Eagles defeated Seneca 11-2.

  • Lady Chargers turn errors into runs against NB

     HEBRON ESTATES – After winning 32 games a year ago and with seven returning starters, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers were expected to be a powerhouse this spring.

    On Friday, the softball team at North Bullitt couldn’t argue that point after Bullitt East rolled to a 9-2 victory in the only meeting this spring between the two rivals. The Lady Chargers scored twice in the top of the first inning and never looked back in rolling to the program’s sixth straight win to open the season.

  • North Bullitt earns state powerlifting recognition

     HEBRON ESTATES – For the second straight year, North Bullitt hosted the Kentucky State Powerlifting Championships.

    The event was held in the Eagles’ Nest on Saturday, March 8 and it was a good day for the host school as the Eagles came out on top, winning for a second straight year.

    North Bullitt finished with 74 points in the varsity competition and that was ten points better than runner-up Madisonville. St. Xavier was third with 48 points while Carroll County was fourth (20 points) while Trinity was fifth (13).

  • Lady Chargers will be among state’s elite

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers have long memories when it comes to the way the 2013 season concluded.

    That is a good thing. The red and gold have used that as motivation in the off-season and it is already paying dividends.
