  • 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.

    Girls’ action

  • Eagles rally from early 5-0 hole to beat Central 7-6

       HEBRON ESTATES -- A 5-1 deficit after the first inning showed that North Bullitt had a little bit of a hangover from facing Bullitt East three days earlier, but the Eagles kept their composure, rallied, and beat 23rd District rival Bullitt Central 7-6 on Tuesday of last week.

    North Bullitt scored four times in the top of the third inning and then went ahead with another run in the fourth. Bullitt Central kept it close, tying the game at 6-6 in the sixth.

  • Chargers have tough week

  • Down early, Lady Cougars rally past North 13-5

     HEBRON ESTATES – Two months ago, Bullitt Central softball coach Mike Phillips was frustrated this his team was letting mistakes snowball into more and more mistakes before the team was in such a hole that they mentally gave up.

  • Again it is 1-0 as Bullitt East slips past Mercy

     LOUISVILLE – Bullitt East vs. Mercy ranks as one of the top softball rivalries in the area, if not the closest.

    In the four seasons since the two programs were thrust into the 24th District, the two state powers have met seven times and seven times the games have been decided by a single run. Four times the final score has been 1-0.

    On Thursday, the two top-15 teams in the state clashed at Mercy and again it was fought tooth and nail before Bullitt East pulled out a 1-0 decision.

  • NB’s Vincent signs with Indiana Tech

     LOUISVILLE – Having friends in all the right places paid big dividends for North Bullitt senior Chayse Vincent as she found a volleyball home for the next four years at Indiana Tech, a college in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
