    While his Eagles fell 2-1 to St. Xavier, it was a perfect game for Wise.

  • Kelly shuts-down BC in 5-0 North Bullitt win

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- There wasn’t a lot of hoopla in the North Bullitt camp on Thursday.

    Despite defeating county rival Bullitt Central 5-0 to clinch the top spot in upcoming District 23 baseball tournament, there wasn’t a lot of celebrating on the Eagle sidelines.

    Yes, it was a district victory.

    And, yes, it was against a county foe led  by a former NB freshman coach.

    But, no, head coach Brian Wise wasn’t completely satisfied with the win.

    And G.J. Moore felt his starting pitcher deserved a better fate.

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Never a dull moment.

    That is the best way to describe the week that was last week for the Bullitt East Charger baseball squad.

  • Renneisen’s big blast helps BE beat Mercy 3-2

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- It may be the biggest softball rivalry in the region.

    But that rivalry has been a bit one-sided, although super competitive.

    The Mercy Jaguars had won the past seven encounters with Bullitt East. Four of the games were decided by one run and several went into extra innings.

    But that streak is over.

    With one mighty swing by sophomore Lindsay Renneisen, Bullitt East would start a streak of its own.
