  • Local girls win 15 of 18 events in border war

     BARDSTOWN – The Border Battle, a track and field meet between the three public schools from Bullitt County against the three schools in Nelson County, had split winners this year.

         For Bullitt County, most of the success came on the girls’ side as Bullitt East, North Bullitt and Bullitt Central combined to win 15 of the 18 events contested. Individual school scores were kept with Bullitt East edging past North Bullitt 133 to 119.5. Bullitt Central was fourth with 80 points.

  • Bullitt Central girls' tennis having a winning season

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The regional tennis action is getting closer for local teams. 

  • With a 0.61 ERA, pitching is doing it all for Chargers

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The offense is still sputtering, but the Bullitt East Chargers are doing everything else right as they posted three more wins last week.

    The wins are coming from stout pitching and enough good defense to keep teams at bay. In the three wins last week, the Chargers allowed just three runs and only one of those runs was earned.

    Overall,  the Chargers are now 15-4 after starting the season 2-2.

  • Eagles win pitching duel from Trojans 1-0 in eight

     HEBRON ESTATES - The last time the two teams met in the regular season, Jacob Kelly threw a no-hitter.

    On Tuesday, North Bullitt hurlers Josh Exton and Kelly combined to blank the Southern Trojans.

    Scoring in the bottom of the eighth inning, North Bullitt won a key district game 1-0.

    Exton struck out 10 batters in six innings and Kelly struck out two as he gained his fifth victory in as many decisions.

    The traditional winds of North Bullitt had a bit of a nip in the air. It was another tough day for the batters.

  • Central won the one game last week that counted

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – If you are going to win just one game a week in the middle of the high school baseball season, then winning the game against your district rivals makes that job one.

    The Bullitt Central Cougars did just that last week, posting a 1-2 mark, but winning the most important game as they rallied late to beat Moore 8-3. That win was sandwiched between a 9-1 setback to Manual and a 13-3 loss to Forest Park, a team from Indiana, on Saturday.

  • Mercy outlasts East - Again

     LOUISVILLE – Missed chances early in the game came back to haunt Bullitt East on Monday night in another classic match-up with 24th District rival Mercy.

    This time it took 11 innings before the Jaguars pushed across the only run of the game. This came on the heels of last season’s district final at Bullitt East that went to the 12th inning before Mercy pulled out a 4-3 victory.

    In fact, this was the third straight meeting over the past two seasons between the two programs that has ended with Mercy winning by a single run.

  • NB runs away late to beat BC

     HEBRON ESTATES – The best news on Monday coming out of the North Bullitt-Bullitt Central softball meeting was that for at least five innings it was a highly competitive game.

    In the end, North Bullitt scored five times in the bottom of the sixth inning before coasting to an 8-1 victory.

  • Area track teams ready for the 'big' meets

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – With the ‘warm-up’ meets out of the way, the area track programs are ready for the main events, at least as far as the regular season is concerned.

         Last weekend, Bullitt East and North Bullitt competed in the very difficult Male Invitational. A night earlier, Bullitt Central was taking part in the Central Hardin Invitational. There were some strong performances by the area teams in both of those meets.

  • Tennis teams just two weeks away from post-season

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It was a windy week for those who play tennis.

  • East ready for tough run

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Standing at 13-1 overall and undefeated against teams from Kentucky, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers will find out over the next two weeks just how good they are.

    Already, coach Ricky Hoffman’s team has beaten three teams ranked among the top-25 teams in the state. Bullitt East stands at number nine and between Tuesday of this week and next Saturday, the Lady Chargers will play five of the top seven teams in the state based on the state’s coaches’ poll.
