  • Bats go cold for Lady Chargers in semis

      LOUISVILLE – The date might have been May 31, but the Bullitt East Lady Chargers played more like it was the middle of March last Wednesday in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Softball Tournament at Ulmer Stadium on the University of Louisville campus.

    Bullitt East head coach Ricky Hoffman thought that his team had put a poor start behind them with a strong final two months. However, the red and gold reverted back to old habits in the post-season, making five errors and collecting just one hit in a 6-0 loss to Butler.

  • Lady Chargers leave no doubt in rout of North

     HEBRON ESTATES – After losing in the first-round of the Sixth Region Tournament two of the past three seasons, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers left no doubt on Monday in the tourney opener as they rolled past North Bullitt 17-1.

    This was the first regional level meeting in fast-pitch softball between two Bullitt County teams, but the outcome this time was never in doubt. The Lady Chargers scored three times in the top of the first inning and then scored in six of the seven innings including seven runs in the top of the seventh.

  • Butler next for East on Wednesday

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- After beating North Bullitt on Monday, the road will get a lot tougher for Bullitt East on Wednesday as they will face Butler in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Softbal Tournament at 5:30 p.m. at the University of Louisville’s Ulmer Stadium.

    Butler advanced to the showdown with a 2-1 victory on Monday over defending Sixth Region champion Holy Cross.

  • Eagles come up empty in loss to Fern Creek with 5-4 loss to Tigers

     HEBRON ESTATES – You never want a bad game to be your last game of a season.

    But, thanks to 11 walks and the lack of getting the big hit, the North Bullitt Eagles made a first-round exit in the Region Six baseball tournament on Monday.

    The Eagles fell 14-7 to the  visiting Fern Creek Tigers.

    “It’s tough,” veteran Eagle coach Brian Wise said after the game.

    Falling behind 8-0 after two innings proved too much for the home team to overcome.

  • BC finishes a tough season with a strong final contest

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – While the outcome was the same, it was a totally different Bullitt Central softball team that played in the opener of the 23rd District tournament.

    After suffering a 17-0 loss to North Bullitt, the Lady Cougars fell 6-4 on Tuesday but it was an encouraging way to end the season.

    Still, it was the Lady Eagles who would advance to the championship game on Friday. North Bullitt would repeat as the district champ with a huge 10-3 victory over Southern.

    In the opener, North Bullitt would score two runs in the second inning.

  • Moore knocks out BC in ‘frustrating’ contest

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Calling it the most frustrating game in his coaching career, Bullitt Central skipper G.J. Moore was left wondering what would have been.

    His Cougars had fought back from a 2-0 deficit only to see the Moore Mustangs win the opener of the District 23 baseball tournament 4-3.

    The second-seeded Mustangs were the home team on Bullitt Central’s field and needed that final at-bat to secure the victory.

    Keagan Gentry opened the Mustang seventh with a single to left field. Patrick Wells laid down a sacrifice bunt.

  • Regional tourney action starts on Monday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It has happened in both boys’ and girls’ basketball in the past five years, but for the first time in softball, two Bullitt County teams will meet in the opening round of the Sixth Region Tournament.

    That clash will take place on Monday when Bullitt East, coming off its 13-inning marathon 2-0 loss to Mercy, travels across Bells Mill Road to take on North Bullitt at 11 a.m. The Lady Eagles get to be the host school after winning the 23rd District title with a 10-3 victory over Southern.

  • Another classic, but Mercy beats BE in 13 innings

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – We should have expected no less.

    It was another classic on Friday night as it took 13 innings before the Mercy Jaguars pushed across a pair of runs to beat Bullitt East in the championship game of the 24th District Softball Tournament.

    The 2-0 score was the same as last years district final when the Lady Chargers lost to Fern Creek.

  • Eagles roll early and then cruise past Moore

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – He’s not a playwright. And he’s not a psychic.

    However, North Bullitt veteran baseball coach Brian Wise crafted out two pretty planned games to capture the school’s fifth consecutive District 23 title.

    The 12-7 victory over Moore on Friday will allow North Bullitt to host the Sixth Region opener on Monday morning. Play then advances to Jim Patterson Stadium on the University of Louisville campus.

    Delayed by rain for two days may have helped the Eagles.

  • Lady Eagles rally past short-handed Southern

     LOUISVILLE – After three days of weather delays, packing up and traveling 15 miles to play on your opponent’s home field in a district championship game didn’t seem to phase the North Bullitt Lady Eagles one bit.

    Finally getting to play on Friday on Southern’s home field for the 23rd District title, coach Neal Hornback’s team spotted the Lady Trojans an early run and then scored eight runs over four innings en route to a 10-3 victory.
