  • Charger baseball has perfect Florida vacation

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers had such a good time on their spring break trip to Florida that they came home a day early.

    True story.

    Actually, the Chargers did come home a day early. Well, at least some of the group did. That was because that after four straight wins, the team they were supposed to play on Friday at the ESPN Wide World of Sports begged out of playing another game that week, saying that they had some injuries and were short on pitching.

  • Area track teams full speed ahead after break

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The high school track and field season will kick into high gear this week after the teams return to school from spring break.

    In fact, the North Bullitt Eagles will be back in action after making a trip to Florida over spring break, a first for a local track program.

  • Cougars post 2-2 mark over spring break

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – It hasn’t been a great start to the 2014 baseball season for the Bullitt Central Cougars, but staying near home and winning two of four games might be more important than heading to Florida for spring break.

         Unlike most area teams, the Cougars stayed at home for spring break. Instead, head coach G.J. Moore opted to once again play in the General Spring Break Bash as Thomas Nelson High School. The Cougars won the event last year, beating Edmonson County in the final game.

  • BC's Fulkerson signs to play at Thomas More

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Football will stay in Jacob Fulkerson’s life for the next few seasons after the Bullitt Central senior recently signed to play the sport at Thomas More College in Crestview Hills, Kentucky.

         After being on the Bullitt Central varsity the past three seasons, Fulkerson got a recruiting email from the coaching staff at the school. He responded and that got the ball rolling. There were a few other options, but none that were as close to home as the school in northern Kentucky, just south of Cincinnati.

  • NB girls bounce back well from an early setback

     HEBRON ESTATES – After dropping a tough decision to county rival Bullitt East to end the previous week, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles bounced back in a big way last week, winning two games to head into a spring break trip to Florida with a lot of confidence.

    The big change for coach Mike Nally’s team was that senior Shelby Crenshaw was given the ball in the circle and she responded with two strong outings. Nally had wanted to keep Crenshaw more at shortstop this season after she split the pitching duties with Elise Mills last year.

  • Lady Chargers need lots of hits to be undefeated

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After starting the season with six straight wins in which they allowed only nine runs, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers needed 17 hits and almost three hours to get its seventh straight victory.

    Getting the schedule and the weather to cooperate on just one day last week, the red and gold played host to Meade County on Thursday, a day before the team was set to leave for Florida and its annual spring break trip.

    In the end, Bullitt East pushed across a two-out run in the bottom of the seventh inning to beat the Lady Waves 10-9.

  • Lady Cougars are still struggling

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The rough start to the softball season at Bullitt Central didn’t get any smoother last week as the Lady Cougars struggled through three games, dropping all three to fall to 2-5 for the season.

    In all three of the losses last week the Lady Cougars gave up runs in the first inning and except for a 2-2 tie that lasted two innings against Elizabethtown on Monday, the maroon and gray never could bounce back.

  • East heads to Florida after beating BC 8-0

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It was get away day for Bullitt East on Thursday and the Chargers made the most it, beating arch-rival Bullitt Central 8-0.

    A day later head coach Jeff Bowles and his team headed to Florida for their annual pilgrimage to the Wide World of Sports complex at Walt Disney World, the spring training home of the Atlanta Braves.

    Before leaving, Bowles got four of his pitchers work against Bullitt Central. The coach was forced into that as the team played just one other game during the week.

  • East’s Patton hurls no-hitter in win over Panthers

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After the opening days of the high school baseball season, Bullitt East head coach Jeff Bowles wasn’t exactly pleased with the way things were going.

    That all changed on Friday when Charger senior pitcher Chase Patton threw a no-hitter against traditional power Elizabethtown. That brightened the outlook for the veteran coach as his team got a 3-0 victory.

    That win lifted the Chargers to 4-2 for the season heading into the last week at home before the team heads out over the weekend for Florida and spring break baseball.

  • Central’s hitting still on the cold side

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With the bad weather this winter, Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore was worried his team’s hitting would trail the pitching, at least early in the season.

    The worries turned out to be well founded as the Cougars struggled to make contact over the first 10 days of the season. The lack of offense led to a 1-4 start to the season.
