  • 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.

  • No hits? Not a problem for NB during 3-1 win

     HEBRON ESTATES - You survive a lightning delay on the road to win in 12 innings.

    You throw an eighth grader on the hill for his first varsity start, you get no hits but still win.

    You run-rule a team that has beaten Trinity and St. Xavier this year.

    You do all three of those things and it’s been a pretty darn good week.

    Such is the life for head coach Brian Wise and his North Bullitt Eagles.

  • Tennis teams close out regular season

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- As the final days of the regular season approached, tennis coaches were busy figuring out who would play where in the upcoming Eighth Region tournament in Frankfort.

  • Area boys' teams did a lot of good things this season

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Through snow and sleet and bitterly cold temperatures, the three Bullitt County boys’ basketball teams delivered a season to remember over the winter.

         Bullitt East, Bullitt Central and North Bullitt all delivered winning records this season, but more importantly, for the first time ever, the three programs all reached the post-season. Bullitt East won the 24th District title while Bullitt Central slipped past North Bullitt in the 23rd District.

  • Girls' winning records show power

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the second time in the past three seasons, all three Bullitt County girls’ basketball teams advanced out of district play and into the Sixth Region Tournament.

         Add to that the fact that all three teams posted winning records and it all adds-up to another strong season for the three Bullitt County girls’ programs.

  • NB softball comes up just short of top district seed

      HEBRON ESTATES – After beating Bullitt Central two days earlier, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles had a chance to wrap up the number one seed for the 23rd District Tournament in three weeks, but at Southern on Wednesday the green and gold dropped a 5-3 decision.

    A day later, coach Mike Nally’s team rolled over Moore 15-0 in four innings to finish district play with a 2-1 record. That will give them the number two seed for the 23rd District Tournament, which will be played at Bullitt Central the week of May 19.

  • Toughest stretch ever comes to an end for BE girls

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Few softball teams in the state had a tougher two-week stretch than the one the Bullitt East Lady Chargers just went through.

  • BC’s Phillips can see better times

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Despite the fact that the team has won just three games this season, first-year Bullitt Central softball coach Mike Phillips believes that he sees the light at the end of the tunnel – and it is not an oncoming train.

    Finally, it looks like the Lady Cougars could return to the line-up that defeated Fern Creek (a team that beat Bullitt East last week) in the first week of the season. Phillips has not seen that team since a rash of injuries sidetracked the season.
