High School Sports

  • Seven BE cheerleaders headed to college teams

    MOUNT WASHINGTON--Seven Bullitt East High School students will be furthering their cheerleading careers in college.

    Kristen Dadisman and Christina Daugherty will be heading to the University of Kentucky.

    Dadisman said she started cheering in fifth grade at Eastside Middle School and decided to continue in high school.

    “I liked being thrown around,” she said.

    The Mount Washington resident said she selected UK because it has a good cheerleading program as well as nursing, which she plans to major in.

  • East’s Colvin ready to get bigger with Tigers

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Sometimes a college football recruiters’ best friend is a former teammate.

    That is exactly the case when it came to Campbellsville University getting the signature of Bullitt East running back Austin Colvin earlier this spring. Colvin got a positive report from former Bullitt East tight end Cruise Coulter who just finished his first season in the Tigers’ program (albeit a short season as Coulter spent much of the fall injured).

  • East’s Fackler to Christendom for volleyball

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A year after emails started being exchanged between Johna Fackler’s family and Christendom College in Front Royal, Virginia, the Bullitt East senior recently cast her late to continue her volleyball career with the Crusaders.

    Fackler is the first to admit that she had never heard of the small school, but that it offered everything she was looking for in a college including the volleyball. That made the final decision easy to make.

  • Dunnavan takes shooting touch to Panthers

    HEBRON ESTATES--The recruiting process turned out to be pretty simple for North Bullitt standout Ricky Dunnavan as he quickly found the right landing spot with Greenville College in Greenville, Illinois.

    The four year school is an NCAA Division III program that plays in the St. Louis Area Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, the same conference as Spalding University in Louisville.

    In fact, the only other school that Dunnavan considered was Spalding.

  • Ewell looking to improve skills at Greenville

    HEBRON ESTATES-- North Bullitt senior Ryan Ewell is not a basketball superstar, but he loves the game and he wasn't quite ready to step away from the game that he loves.
        That is why when Eagle teammate Ricky Dunnavan told his pal that he was going to sign with Greenville College in Greenville, Illinois, that the dream of continuing to play basketball resurfaced. Dunnavan mentioned Ewell to Greenville head coach George Baker and the coach made a phone call.

  • Spring post-season honors continue to roll in

    SHEPHERDSVILLE-- The honors continue to roll in for area baseball and softball players after a successful spring campaign.
        Leading the news last week was the announcement that North Bullitt junior third baseman Logan Wyatt had been named to the All-State team by the Kentucky High School Baseball Coaches Association.

  • Baseball continues to find success locally

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – If you haven’t been keeping track, I can certainly tell you without hesitation that Bullitt County has been playing some pretty good baseball over the past decade or so.

    Of course, North Bullitt is coming off back-to-back Sixth Region titles and the Eagles will certainly be one of the favorites when the spring season rolls around in nine months or so. Coach Brian Wise’s program has reached the semi-finals and quarter-finals of the Kentucky State Baseball Tournament at the end of the past two seasons.

  • NB’s Burton gets late call to Campbellsville

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The son of a coach wants to coach.

    That is what North Bullitt senior Zack Burton wants for his future, but first there are still a few more football games to be played.

    When the Eagles’ season ended with the first round play-off loss to Grayson County in November, Burton felt that he had played in his final football game. But then at the last minute of the recruiting process, Campbellsville jumped into the picture and suddenly Burton had a new option for his immediate future.

  • NB’s Ellis set to play hoops at Spalding U.

     HEBRON ESTATES – The pipeline of North Bullitt athletes to Spalding University continued recently when Eagle basketball standout Dominique Ellis threw his hat into the ring to play for the Golden Eagles one county north in Louisville.

    Ellis will rejoin with former North Bullitt standout Brandon Goeing who will be a senior with Spalding in the winter. Ellis and Goeing were teammates with the Eagles during the 2011-2012 season with the Eagles.

  • Highlands ends Eagles' title dreams

    LEXINGTON -- Baseball is a game of inches.

    Sometimes the plays go in your favor. Sometimes they do not.

    On Wednesday evening, the second magical season for the North Bullitt Eagles came to a close. This time, in the quarterfinals of the Rawlings KHSAA State Baseball Tournament.
