  • Funds found to clear hurdle on tracks

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- While not yet reaching the finish line, it appears track and field competitors in Bullitt County might be getting closer to a winning resolution to a long-time problem.
        The Bullitt County Public School Board voted unanimously at the May work session to allow architect Scott Kremer to negotiate with the two low bidders.
        The goal is to find a way to lower the bids, both of which were well over the estimated cost to repair and upgrade the Bullitt Central track.

  • North keeps the pressure on to defeat Chargers 4-2

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Any time you throw North Bullitt and Bullitt East into the athletic arena, you can pretty well expect a good contest.

    On a Friday night with a tournament-type crowd, it would be the North Bullitt Eagles who came into Mount Washington and walked away with a 4-2 victory on the first night of the Valu-Market Challenge, a six-game, two-day event hosted by Bullitt East.

    It wasn’t a pretty game for either team. But, for the defending Sixth Region champs, it was a needed victory during a week where runs had been tough to come by.

  • BC baseball faces more bad luck with injuries

     If it wasn’t for bad luck, Bullitt Central baseball would have no luck at all.

    With starting pitcher Kevin McKnight already out for the season with a serious concussion when he slid into an outfield fence post, the Cougars lost another starter last week when senior Nic Caswell suffered a broken wrist on Saturday in a game against Valley.

    Caswell was the starting pitcher in the game and in the fifth inning he was covering the plate on a wild pitch and he suffered the injury during the play at the plate.

  • Bullitt has a strong day at regional track

     LOUISVILLE – Competing in one of the state’s toughest regions, Class AAA, Region 3, Bullitt County track and field athletes had a strong showing on Saturday at St. Xavier High School.

    Bullitt East came way with four wins, three on the girls’ side, to finish fifth overall with 51 points. North Bullitt was just behind with 47 points while Bullitt Central collected 13 points to finish ninth.

  • North scores early to win first meeting with BC 9-4

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Scoring three times in the top of the first inning, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles never looked back as they hung a 9-4 decision on 23rd District rival Bullitt Central in softball action on Tuesday.

    The game was played on the very last day for district contests to be played this spring. It had been moved back two weeks after bad weather forced a postponement.

  • Softball to end season with a bang

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The area high school softball teams are prepared to end the regular season with a bang as there are three intra-county games scheduled over the last two weeks.

    Bullitt Central and North Bullitt played on Tuesday of this week in Shepherdsville in the first of two meetings in the month of May. No mater the outcome from yesterday, the two rivals will be playing in the semi-finals of the 23rd District Tournament at North Bullitt the week of May 18.

  • North comes up just short in St. X rematch

     LOUISVILLE -- Leading the state in scoring and having crossed the plate at least 20 times against four different opponents, North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise was looking for something different.

    On Thursday night, the veteran skipper got exactly what he wanted -- a game against one of the top programs in the state played in a regional tournament atmosphere.

    While his Eagles fell 2-1 to St. Xavier, it was a perfect game for Wise.

  • BE beats Butler 2-1 in ten innings

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The start and end of the week worked out just fine for Bullitt East, but it was the game in the middle that left head coach Jeff Bowles scratching his head.

    The Chargers opened last week with a 5-0 victory over Fern Creek. It was an important win as the red and gold will be playing Fern Creek in the first game of the 24th District Tournament which will start the week of May 18 at Jeffersontown High School.

  • Central steals a win from Tigers

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The most exciting play in baseball gave Bullitt Central a win on Wednesday when Cougar junior Cameron Dukes stole home for the winning run in a 7-6 victory over Bardstown.

    Bullitt Central scored three times in the first inning with the help of a double from Dukes and the maroon and gray pushed that to 4-1 with another run in the second on a single by Ethan Moore.

  • BC's Stills uses her head to continue basketball career

    SHEPHERDSVILLE-- A free basketball player?
        That is exactly what Bellarmine University got recently when Bullitt Central senior Stephanie Still cast her lot to play with the Lady Knights starting in the fall.
        Often times it is the player who gets the free ride based on her ability. In this instance, Bellarmine gets a free player based on her academic accomplishments.
