  • BC’s Rippy signs to cheer with Morehead’s All-Girls’ program

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- For some high school seniors, making a college selection is easy -- especially if you make that decision as a freshman.

    For Bullitt Central’s Miranda Rippy it might not have been that cut and dry, but she says that as a freshman she was positive that she wanted to attend Morehead State University and join the school’s national power cheerleading program.

  • Duvall may not be going to UK amidst turmoil

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – The upheaval in the University of Kentucky’s women’s basketball program took another bad turn last week when Bullitt East junior Lindsey Duvall, who had committed to the Lady Wildcats back in November, re-opened the recruiting process.

    The news was first reported by Brett McCormick of the All-Star Girls Report on news from her father, Tom, and then Bullitt East head coach Chris Stallings.

  • State Tourney in Lexington

     LEXINGTON -- The three Bullitt County players who advanced to the Kentucky State Tennis Tournament after last week’s Sixth Region Tournament in Louisville, will begin play on Thursday.

    The two tournaments will be based at the University of Kentucky Tennis Center, but the girls’ will play on Thursday and Friday at Shilleto Park which is also located in Lexington before shifting to the UK courts for the final rounds on Saturday.

  • Three local players headed to state tourney

     LOUISVILLE -- One player expected to return to the state tournament.

    Another had that as a possibility.

    And another wasn’t even the top singles player on her team prior to the start of this season.

    It doesn’t matter the pre-season talk. Bullitt East’s Jacob Staples and Savannah Kruse, along with Bullitt Central’s Rebecca Price will be heading to Lexington this week to participate in the state tennis tournament.

  • North stays hot...blazing hot...with three more wins

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Players and coaches may not think about it but the scoreboard operator can play an important role in a baseball game.

    In a week in which North Bullitt routinely swept through three games, something out of the ordinary happened in the 12-1 win over Fern Creek.

    With no outs in the top of the fourth inning Thursday, Blake Benz was on third base and Brady Keehn was on first after a two-RBI single.

  • BC now focused on reaching .500

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The season hasn’t gone exactly as the senior-laden Bullitt Central Cougars would like this spring, but with two weeks remaining in the regular season, the maroon and gray have a solid chance at finishing above the .500 mark.

    Despite losing six games by a single run, including all three games against 23rd District rivals, the Cougars stand at 12-15 after winning three games over the past ten days.

  • Charger baseball plays extra game

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- If the Bullitt East Chargers win tight ball games in the post-season, they can credit it to the experience they gained during the regular.

    Five times this spring the Chargers have gone into extra innings and against strong opposition and three times they have come out on top. Three of those extended games happened last week in consecutive contests as the red and gold went 2-1.

    Those games left coach Jeff Bowles’ team with a 17-8 mark heading into the last two weeks of the regular season.

  • 5th-ranked Bullitt East beats 4th-ranked Male 4-2

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers played just one game last week, but it was one big win for the red and gold as they defeated the state’s fourth-ranked team, Male, by a 4-2 score.

    As the team has done all spring, the Lady Chargers rode another huge performance from sophomore Taylor Roby to the win. Roby allowed just four hits while pitching and then she drove home three of the four runs with a home run and a double.

  • BE’s Wilson, Masden reaching elite levels in track

     BARDSTOWN – The final time all three Bullitt County track teams will be competing in the same meet before the Class 3-A, Region 3 Championships came on Tuesday at the Border Battle Meet at Nelson County High School.

    While individual and team scoring was being contested, there was also a Bullitt County vs. Nelson County battle going on. Unfortunately, the Nelson County school prevailed in that duel on both the boys’ and girls’ side as Nelson County, Bardstown and Thomas Nelson got the best of Bullitt East, Bullitt Central and North Bullitt.

  • NB’s Sizemore signs to play softball at Transylvania

     HEBRON ESTATES – Sometimes it is the sport that comes first and the academics follow suit, especially early in the process.

    Other times, high school students have an occupation and career firmly planned out and the sport just follows along for fun.

    It was the latter for North Bullitt senior Tabitha Sizemore. The softball player had long ago decided that she wanted to attend Transylvania University in Lexington to study pre-med with the plans of becoming an anesthesiologist.
