  • Bats go cold as BE suffers 2-1 setback

     MT. WASHINGTON – For all the good things the Bullitt East Chargers did this season in rolling to 27 victories, an 11th consecutive district title and a high state ranking, the team had one major Achilles heel – hitting.

    That bugaboo caught up with the red and gold on Monday as they were knocked out of the post-season with a 2-1 loss to Holy Cross in the first-round of the Sixth Region Tournament.

    The game was played at Bullitt East marking the first time the Chargers had ever hosted a regional baseball contest.

    That all changed in difficult ways for Bullitt East on Monday as the red and gold suffered a 4-3 loss to the Bearettes in the first game of the Sixth Region Tournament.
