  • Track teams seem to have gotten some boost from new tracks

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The first track and field meet held in Bullitt County in four years turned out to be a success two weeks ago with Bullitt East hosting North Bullitt and Bullitt Central as well as Moore and Fern Creek.

    That is not to say that everything went perfectly, few track meets ever do, but it was a very positive first step. Much of the credit for the success goes to Bullitt East head coach Lenny Raley. No one person in Bullitt County is more important to a sport than Raley is to track.

  • The real diamond seasons start this week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore remembers it well.

    A year ago he had a relatively strong baseball team. True, the Cougars might have been a step or two behind two-time defending Sixth Region champion North Bullitt at the time, but they were most certainly on the same level as the other two district rivals – Moore and Southern.

  • 2017 All-Bullitt County Basketball Team

      As part of the 2017 All-Bullitt County Basketball Team, Schmid Funeral Home presents the Male and Female Players of the Year with a trophy.

    The awards were recently presented to Bullitt East senior Charger player Jared Osborne while Lady Charger senior Lindsey Duvall won the award for the fourth time. Presenting the awards for Schmid Funeral Home were Mark Schmid and Tim Gonterman.

  • BE slips past nemeses Butler 2-1

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It was a classic pitcher’s duel on Thursday between two teams that started the season ranked among the top dozen teams in the state when Bullitt East played host to its longtime thorn-in-the-side foe Butler.

    In the end, it was Bullitt East hurler Taylor Roby who got the best of Bearettes starter Annabelle Ramirez as the Lady Chargers pulled out a 2-1 victory.

    This was the first meeting between the rivals since Butler claimed a 1-0 victory a year ago in the first round of the Sixth Region tournament.

  • North falls late to Crimsons 6-4

     HEBRON ESTATES – After struggling at the start of the season, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles seem to be slowly putting the pieces together

    First, after dropping the first six games of the season during which they averaged just a little over one run a game, the green and gold picked up a 15-4 victory on a trip over the river to take on Providence High School (In.).

    Then last week, in the only game the team had scheduled, North Bullitt stayed close with a strong Manual squad before giving up two runs in the top of the seventh inning and losing 6-4.

  • Cougars get two early, then hold on to snap skid

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Over the past 15 years, the Bullitt Central Cougars have a dismal record against Bullitt East when it comes to baseball.

    However, on Thursday, Cougar junior Harrison Ijames put a 16-game losing streak in the rear view mirror as Bullitt Central recorded a 2-0 victory in the only regular season meeting between the two rivals this season.

    Since 2008, a span of nine games, Bullitt Central had not scored more than a single run in any of the losses to the Chargers.

  • Holt throws 1-hitter in second straight outing

     FAIRDALE — Fairdale was looking to pick up a game.

    North Bullitt had been rained out twice and needed a game.

    And the two schools are only five miles apart.

    So, lets play ball.

    In its only game before heading to Myrtle Beach for its annual Cal Ripken Experience, the North Bullitt Eagles hooked up with Fairdale.

    For a second straight game, Brendan Holt supplied his team with a one-hit performance en route to a 6-1 North Bullitt victory.

  • Tennis programs gliding into spring break

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Action already neared the mid-way point for the tennis teams in Bullitt County.

    Unfortunately, the week got off to a wet start as a match between North Bullitt and Bullitt Central was rained out on Monday.

    In a cross-county match, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars turned back Bullitt East 4-1 on Wednesday.

    In a battle of state tournament performers from last spring, Bullitt East’s Savannah Kruse got the best of her battle against Rebecca Price. Kruse scored an 8-4 victory.

  • FINALLY!!: All-Comers Track Meet at Bullitt East

      MOUNT WASHINGTON - After four years without a single home meet, Bullitt County track athletes got to compete on home soil on Tuesday as Bullitt East hosted an All-Comers Meet that included all three local programs as well as Moore and Fern Creek.

    Bullitt East will also host meets at home on April 19 (eight teams) as well as the All-Bullitt County Championships on May 8.

  • Local softball teams struggling to find victories

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The first two-plus weeks of the high school softball season have been a struggle for the three Bullitt County programs and that includes Bullitt East, a team that started the season ranked ninth in the coaches’ pre-season poll.

    The Lady Chargers return starting pitcher Taylor Roby and while the junior has been strong, she had gotten little help at the plate and even less help from her defense as the Lady Chargers stand just 3-4 with two games this week before the team heads to Florida for spring break.
