  • Lady Eagles maul Central 16-0

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Without a doubt, it has been a challenging spring for the softball teams from North Bullitt and Bullitt Central.

    With less than two weeks remaining in the regular season, the two teams have fewer combined wins than either team has losses. At times this spring, the losses have been less than competitive.

  • North at East baseball Friday at 8:30 p.m.

      While the Mount Washington Spring Festival will be taking place downtown, baseball will be the focus on the east side of town as the Valu-Market Charger Challenge will be contested at Bullitt East on Friday and Saturday.

    This year’s event is loaded with top talent as the last three Sixth Region champions, North Bullitt (in 2014 and 2015) and Bullitt East (2016) will take part along with Louisville Trinity, the top-ranked team in Kentucky this season. The fourth squad is Martha Layne Collins.

  • Eagles struggle in short week

     HEBRON ESTATES – It wasn’t the best of weeks for the North Bullitt Eagles.

    In fact, head coach Brian Wise said the game on Wednesday against LaRue County resulted in one of those annual heart-to-heart talks with his players.

    Still, with two weeks to go in the regular season, Wise is looking for a bounce-back week as the Eagles face a tough five-game stretch, including three at Bullitt East this Friday and Saturday.

  • Central rallies past Central for 10-5 baseball win

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – High School baseball teams in Kentucky are allowed to play up to 36 games in the regular season.

    Last week, Bullitt East was fortunate to play one game.

    Welcome to spring in Kentucky. Mother Nature was the clear-cut winner last week as heavy rain made play impossible on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

    So, Bullitt Central head coach G.J. Moore was glad that his team did get one complete game in during the week. On Tuesday, the maroon and gray rallied from a fourth inning hole to defeat visiting Louisville Central 10-5.

  • Pitch committee does enough as East beats CAL

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Veteran Bullitt East baseball coach Jeff Bowles will be the first to say that his team has a wealth of good pitchers.

    Unfortunately, the coach will also say that to this point, none of those pitchers has stepped forward to be the team’s ‘ace’, or a great pitcher.

  • With strong body of work early BE’s Williams still in demand

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.

    Bullitt East senior basketball player Raegan Williams can say just that as she continued to press forward this winter after suffering an ACL injury in November that forced her to miss her entire senior season on the court.

    Still, through it all, Williams stayed positive and continued to push for her career goal of playing college basketball.

  • North’s Keehn continues baseball career with Tigers

     HEBRON ESTATES – North Bullitt senior Brady Keehn is like a lot of high school students when it comes to picking a college – he wanted to be away from home, but not too far away.

    That was what made Georgetown College near Lexington appear so perfect for Keehn. It took just one visit, in March, to decide that playing baseball for the Tigers, as well as being a student, was the best course of action for him.

  • Local tennis teams start regional play today

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Tennis players wrapped up the regular season last and prepare for Sixth Region action to begin Monday afternoon.

    The three high schools can have up to two singles players and two doubles teams entered into the regional tourney.

    Action will begin on Monday afternoon.

    (The regional draws were held on Sunday, which was past press deadlines for today’s Pioneer News.)

  • Fields are set for district diamond action

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – There are now just two weeks remaining in the in the regular season for baseball and softball and the pairings for the 23rd and 24th District Tournaments are already set.

    The good news for local diamond sport fans is that Bullitt Central will be hosting both of the 23rd District events while Bullitt East will have the baseball and softball tourneys in the 24th District.

  • BE gets the best of Mercy 1-0

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Five times Bullitt East and Mercy have met in the regular season as district rivals and five times the game has come down to a single run.

    On Tuesday, it was Bullitt East that scored the one and only run as the Lady Chargers defeated their arch-rivals 1-0 to move to the top of the seeding process for the upcoming 24th District Tournament. The Lady Chargers are hosting the district tournament this season during the week of May 22.
