    “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.

    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.

    He has never looked back.

    In Louisville, a pair of local players took part in the Kentucky High School Coaches Association East/West Junior All-Star Basketball Game at Bellarmine University.

  • BE’s Masden headed to Bellarmine track team hoops with IUS squad

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Three years ago, Bullitt East’s Lauren Masden would have predicted that she would be signing grant-in-aid papers to attend the college or her choice in the spring of 2017.

    Masden would have also told you that she would be signing to be a basketball player.

    As it turns out, Masden had the big picture right, but she missed on the sport. Instead, the Charger senior recently signed with Bellarmine University to join the track and field program as a distance runner.
