  • Lady Chargers have won 9 of 10 down the stretch

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers continued their late season revival with four more wins last week, but the team did miss out on a game with a top-20 opponent because of the heavy rain on Saturday.

    The four wins mean that the Lady Chargers have won nine of their last ten outings. The team is now 24-8 as they enter play in the final week of the regular season.

  • Two games in two weeks makes it tough on NB

     HEBRON ESTATES – No softball coach in the state wants good weather this week more than North Bullitt’s Mike Nally.

    Over the previous two weeks, the Lady Eagles have been able to play on two games. With just one week remaining in the regular season, the green and gold definitely need to get in some work before entering 23rd District play next week when they will play Bullitt Central in a semi-final round game in Shepherdsville.

  • North gets the best of PRP baseball...again

     HEBRON ESTATES - With a week to go in the regular season, the bats are popping, the pitchers are throwing strikes and the wins are rolling in.

    For the North Bullitt Eagles, things are coming together at just the right time.

    After starting the week out with a big district win over Bullitt Central, head coach Brian Wise’s squad followed that up with victories over Shelby County, Pleasure Ridge Park and Fern Creek.

  • Chargers stay hot, but rain halts play Saturday

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Not every team plays every game at the highest level – not even the Bullitt East baseball program.

    However, the recent weeks head coach Jeff Bowles’ team has played just well enough to beat the mid-level teams on its schedule while saving it’s best baseball for the best foes.

    That was again the case last week as the red and gold won three more games. Bullitt East has now won eight of its last nine outings to move to 23-6 overall with a week remaining in the regular season.

  • Tough loss early haunts BC baseball for a week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – When is a loss more than a single loss? When it comes in the eighth inning against your arch-rival.

    That is what happened to Bullitt Central last week. On Monday, the Cougars played well against North Bullitt, but lost to a run in the bottom of the eighth inning.

  • There was an All-County track meet--sort of

    BARDSTOWN-- After being rained out on their original date and then not being able to get everyone together later in the week for the Bardstown Invitational, the three Bullitt County track programs all jumped into an All-Comers Meet at Thomas Nelson High School last Thursday for what was listed as the All-Bullitt County Meet.
        The All-County designation was a little misleading as six other schools were also taking part in the meet. Plus, since the event was added to everyone's schedule at the last minute, not all of the teams were at full strength.

  • BE's Norris reaches state tennis tourney

    FRANKFORT--Bullitt East senior Hunter Norris moved into rarified air last week when he qualified for a third straight trip to the Boys' Kentucky State Tennis Tournament as he reached the semi-finals of the Eighth Region Tournament at Franklin County High School.
        Norris had twice previously gotten to Lexington for the state tourney in doubles along with partner Reese Milburn. After Milburn's graduation, Norris switched over to singles and with the spot in the semi-finals, advanced to the state tourney.

  • Lady Chargers find missing offense just in time

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A week ago, Bullitt East Lady Chargers softball coach Ricky Hoffman said his team’s offense was ‘in a slump’ after a two week stretch in which the team lost a number of games to some of the state’s top teams.

  • Chargers play it like post-season in three game run

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For three straight weeks, Bullitt East baseball head coach Jeff Bowles has been running his team through ‘mini regional tournaments’, three game series against top-flight competition.

    After going 3-0 over three days in the Louisville Invitational Tournament the previous weekend, the Chargers faced any even tough group of teams late last week, but the red and gold responded well, beating Sixth Region rivals DeSales and Butler sandwiched around an extra-inning loss to defending state champion Pleasure Ridge Park.

  • Run in eighth lifts Eagles past Central 2-1

      HEBRON ESTATES – A throw over third base in the bottom of the eighth inning allowed a run to score as the North Bullitt Eagles pulled out a 2-1 victory over Bullitt Central on Monday.

    The game had been pushed back a week because of bad weather the previous Monday, but the wait was worth it as the two county rivals and 23rd District combatants put on a classic battle that wasn’t decided until the final moment.
