  • Lady Chargers shine in inaugural Bullitt East Inv.

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Have track, will host.

    That seems to be the philosophy of Bullitt East track coach Lenny Raley. The program now has a solid track facility and for the second timie this spring the Charger program hosted a meet on Wednesday.

    This second effort was bigger and bolder with nine teams taking part in what was titled the Bullitt East Invitational. Raley even rented an electronic scoring and timing system that moved the meet along at a much faster pace than the first meet of the season had when there were only five teams taking part.

  • BC 7th, BE 15th at KHSAA state archery tourney

     LEXINGTON – It wasn’t exactly the score that the team was hoping for, but the Bullitt Central Cougars, with just one senior, finished seventh on Thursday at the KHSAA Kentucky State Archery Tournament at the Kentucky Basketball Academy.

    Led by the team’s lone senior, Andrew Dean who had a 292, the Cougars shot a final total of 3409, a total that was slightly off of the 3416 that the team shot in winning the Region Four Tournament ten days earlier.

  • BE softball picking up steam; NB wins second

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers played just two games last week, lost both, but according to head coach Ricky Hoffman, the team is playing better and are on the verge of even bigger things.

    Rain slowed the start of action last week and the Lady Chargers didn’t get on the field until Thursday against Eastern and it took eight innings before the Lady Eagles pulled out a 4-2 victory.

  • A horrible start sinks BC in district opener

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – One bad inning put the Bullitt Central Cougars behind the eight ball on Thursday and the maroon and gray could not recover as they dropped a key 23rd District game to Moore by a 7-3 score.

    In fact, in the only two games that the Cougars played last week, they were behind early. The only good news was that the team managed to rally on Friday and beat Thomas Nelson 8-3 on the road.

  • Eagles get an extra day to beat Southern

     HEBRON ESTATES – Brian Wise has been in coaching for a number of years.

    And just when you think we’ve seen it all… there is something new.

    The past week was a series of “I don’t know if I’ve ever seen that” moments for the veteran North Bullitt baseball coach.

    At the end of the day, North Bullitt got the win it needed — a victory over district foe Southern.

  • Chargers come up just short over weekend

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There was plenty of offense for the Bullitt East Chargers last week on the baseball diamond and on Saturday it looked for a time like the red and gold could make a major statement on a big stage.

  • BE track team does training in Florida

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- It is just his first season as an assistant coach with the Bullitt East track program, but assistant coach Michael Whitfill is already adding to the program.

    Over spring break, the Chargers took a group of 12 athletes south for some extra training. The group went to Destin, Florida and then competed in a meet in Montgomery, Alabama before returning home.

    The spring break trip was something that Whitfill did in his last few seasons coaching at North Bullitt.

  • NB’s Dunnavan signs with Spalding for basketball

     HEBRON ESTATES – His senior season didn’t turn out as he had dreamed, but basketball will continue for North Bullitt senior Travis Dunnavan after he signed last week to play at Spalding University in Louisville.

    Dunnavan’s senior season was cut short by injuries that eventually required major knee surgery. The season hadn’t even started when he first hurt the knee but it was believed at the time to just be a sprain. Dunnavan played in the first game of the season, but then went down hard and sat out the next month.

  • Big tennis winner was the weather

     MOUNT WASHINGTON — The final weeks of the tennis season began after spring break. However, the weather wasn’t always cooperative.

    But before the spring break vacation, Bullitt East girls’ tennis got a couple of matches completed.

    On March 28, the Lady Chargers went to Highview Park for a single match against Whitefield Academy.

    Jada Rush lost to Whitefield’s Emily Jacobson 6-0, 6-1.

    (Wednesday’s match against Bullitt Central was detailed in the Monday, April 3, issue of The Pioneer News.)

  • Central, East heading to KHSAA state archery

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the third straight season, Bullitt County will be sending a one-two punch to the Kentucky High School Athletic Association State Archery Tournament in Lexington.
