High School Sports

  • BE’s Waddle taking bow skills to Campbellsville

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – One offer was all that Bullitt East senior Sierra Waddle needed to know exactly where she wanted to attend college and compete in her favorite sport.

    That all came together last fall when the newest sport at Campbellsville University – archery – offered Waddle financial aide to attend the school. After that, Waddle put the college recruiting business behind her.

  • Baseball and softball ready for the real season

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – With spring break in the rearview mirror, the high school baseball and softball seasons can focus on what is most important -- the play between the foul lines.

    That is not a knock of the action during the first three weeks of the season. It is just an indictment of how coaches break down the season.

  • Sharpe’s golden run continues in Derby Classic

     LOUISVILLE – The golden spring for Bullitt East basketball standout Tyler Sharpe will continue on Friday as he will participate in the Kentucky Derby Festival Basketball Classic Presented by Papa John’s at Freedom Hall.

    Sharpe will be just the second local player to participate in the country’s oldest high school All-Star Game that since 1973 has invited some of the stop players in the country to participate.

  • BC’s Phillips signs to run distance races at Spalding

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central senior Kelsey Phillips has developed into a top long-distance running threat in both cross-country and track, but it was the short distance to Spalding University in Louisville that made her decide to become a Lady Golden Eagle.

    In fact, it was over three months ago that Phillips decided that Spalding would be her next running home. It just took a while for it all to become official with an official signing ceremony in the Bullitt Central library recently.

  • Lady Chargers undefeated heading into spring break

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Another week, another no-hitter.

    For the third time this season, Bullitt East sophomore Taylor Roby threw a no-hitter as the Lady Chargers rolled past Garfield Heights, a team from Ohio, in a one day doubleheader at Butler County, by a 10-0 score in six innings.

  • Defense continues to haunt Central

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After the first two weeks of the season, Bullitt Central softball coach Mike Phillips was marveling at how many games his team had played despite some ‘iffy’ weather.

    Well those times are catching up with the maroon and gray as they got to play just one game last week. Over the last two weeks, the team has played just three games heading into spring break.

    On Tuesday, the Lady Cougars did get to play at home, but they came out on the short end of a 6-1 decision to Christian Academy.

  • East takes advantage of early errors to beat BC

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore knew that his team needed an almost perfect outing on Wednesday if it expected to compete with Sixth Region rival Bullitt East.

    Unfortunately, it didn’t happen.

    A misplayed fly ball in the first inning led to two early runs and it was all down hill from there as Bullitt East smacked a pair of home runs in rolling to a 12-1 win in five innings.

  • Staples making bid for even higher regional seed for ‘16

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Jacob Staples’ quest to return to the state tennis tournament may have gotten a boost last week.

    Bullitt East lost 4-1 to Manual but Staples recorded a quality victory.

    The senior defeated Luke Sheridan-Rabideau 2-6, 7-5, 1-0 (13-11).

    Sheridan-Rabideau was the fifth seed in the Sixth Region tennis tournament a year ago.

    Bullitt East coach Dustin Armstrong said that once Staples began to go after his opponent’s backhand, things turned in the Chargers’ favor.

  • BE’s Hinkley looking to fill slot at Kentucky Christian

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – Sometimes it is darkest before the dawn when it comes to college athletic recruiting.

    Just ask Bullitt East senior Kameron Hinkley.

    Since the end of his high school season, Hinkley had been hoping to catch on with Lindsey Wilson University. As with any recruiting for sports, there was some give and take, but in the end, Lindsey Wilson was waiting for other players to make decisions before they went all in on Hinkley.

    As it turned out, the other players came through and Lindsey Wilson could not offer anything to Hinkley.

  • BC’s Taylor signs to join St. Catharine bowling

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There is nothing wrong with being aggressive when it comes to the recruiting game.

    Bullitt Central senior Dallas Taylor did just that recently when she got the ball rolling, so to speak, when she contacted St. Catharine bowling coach Larry Luvisi about joining his program.

    Luvisi was impressed and answered the email. That was all it took and recently Taylor made it all official, signing the papers to attend St. Catharine in a ceremony at Bullitt Central in front of her teammates, coaches and family.
