High School Sports

  • Backyard basketball for a good cause

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Now in its 13th year, the Matt Allen Scholarship program hands out awards each summer to college-bound seniors from all three Bullitt County high schools.

    Recently, the program awarded ten scholarships. The recipients included Morgan Gentry (Bullitt East), Savannah Glass (Bullitt East), Sydney Hill (Bullitt East), Kelsin Kemble (Bullitt Central), Sarah Lyons (Bullitt Central), Emma Pressley (Bullitt East),  Rebecca Price (Bullitt Central), Hannah Robinson (North Bullitt), Zachary Taylor (Bullitt East) and Rebecca Vogt (North Bullitt).

  • Jones excelled for BE batting in the number nine position

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – For Bullitt East senior baseball player Zach Jones, being one of four players from the Charger program to be heading to Spalding University in the fall was not any type of master plan.

    In fact, Jones says that if he was the only player making that transition that it would have been just fine also. He would have decided on the Golden Eagles as a solo signee.

  • Riordan ready to continue catching for Golden Eagles

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior Jared Riordan might not have the prototypical size for a catcher, but what he lacks in size he more than makes up for in desire as well as experience.

    That made it a no-brainer for the Spalding baseball coaches to take notice of Riordan right off the bat. The Golden Eagles were not looking for high school catchers to turn into position players. They wanted a full-time catcher and Riordan fit the bill.

  • BE’s Henn signs to play for Kentucky Wesleyan hoops Wesleyan to play basketball

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – As a freshman, Bullitt East basketball standout Kirstie Henn recalled sitting down with Lady Charger head coach Chris Stallings and telling him then that she wanted to play college basketball.

    That dream came to reality this spring when the senior signed to play at the next level for NCAA Division II Kentucky Wesleyan located in Owensboro.

  • A few news and notes as we head to fall time

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – As hard as it might be for some of us to believe, tomorrow will be the first day of August.

    That means that the high school sports season is pretty much already on top of us. All fall sports teams were allowed to start conditioning/practice on July 15, although, with that date falling on a Saturday, some did not start until the 17th.

  • Reece could be part of an All-BE outfield at Spalding

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – When it comes time for that big college destination decision, one key aspect always comes down to location.

    Some high school seniors want to be a little further from home while some others would prefer to stay in the area. That might even be more important for an athlete, as being close to home can mean family being able to continue following the exploits on the field.

  • Langley knew early that he wanted to play at Spalding

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Unlike a lot of high school seniors, Bullitt East’s Mitchell Langley knew where he was going to college way back last fall.

    In fact, Langley recalls the exact day that he contacted Spalding University head coach Matt Downs and committed.

    “It was back on Oct. 8,” the outfielder recalled. “I never wavered from that.”

  • Football schedules see more changes than normal

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – In the past, the area high school football programs haven’t done a lot of schedule changing in the middle of the four-year KHSAA alignment cycle.

    But this time all three went out and made some pretty drastic changes to their schedules. Part of it might be due to the fact that all three schools have different coaches than they had when the schedule for the previous two-year rotation started.

  • BC’s Borah joins Bellarmine bowling program

     LOUISVILLE – Even when it comes to recruiting for smaller programs, there is often a give-and-take between athletics and academics.

    A high school senior will try to balance out the two parts of the future to come to the best fit.

  • Area middle schoolers had big track year

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – Finally with a place to host larger meets, the six Bullitt County middle schools got together in May and held an All-County Championship meet after not being able to do it because of a lack of a suitable track.

    Now with the new tracks at all three high schools, the middle school competed at Bullitt East this year to crown champions in 12 events for both the boys and the girls.

    In the team races Eastside was the bigger winner as that program won both the boys’ and girls’ events.
