  • Patience required as Eagles fill holes after senior departures

        HEBRON ESTATES - With the departure of nine of seniors last spring, North Bullitt baseball coach Brian Wise is faced with some questions marks entering the new season today.
        But the coach entering his sixth year at the helm is not totally void of talent.
        With a number of underclassmen seeing significant varsity playing time last season, Wise will look to surround a corp of experienced players with a group of improving teammates.

     HEBRON ESTATES - After a season in which the program had no seniors, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles enter the 2012 season with what might seem like a relatively old team for veteran head coach Eric Lambert since he does have two seniors.

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Not deciding that volleyball might be a game she would like to compete at until she was a freshman at Bullitt Central, Sarah Spurling made up for lost time and is now headed to the next level, having signed to play at Campbellsville University.
        The Lady Cougar senior made that official on Thursday, signing the papers in the school's library with her mother, grandparents and high school coaches present along with Campbellsville head coach Amy Eckenfels.

        LOUISVILLE - North Bullitt and Pleasure Ridge Park might not have a big rivalry in most sports, but when it comes to girls' bowling, the two programs are among the elite teams in the blossoming sport.
        The Lady Panthers have won four of the last five state championships. The only year they didn't win it was in 2009 when North Bullitt grabbed the title. That makes it a big deal when the two clash in major competitions.
