  • 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.

  • BC baseball sets up showdown at North

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore has been waiting for it most of the season.

    On Tuesday, he finally saw it.

    His Bullitt Central Cougars put together its best all-around game of the season - at the right time.

    The Cougars went to 2-0 in 23rd District play with a 10-0 victory over the Southern Trojans.

    The victory set up a winner-take-all game on Monday at North Bullitt for the top seed in the district tournament.

  • North takes tough losses

     HEBRON ESTATES - North Bullitt baseball skipper Brian Wise took his team back in time.

    It was a district opener between Moore and Bullitt Central last May. The Cougars were expected to easily defeat the Mustangs.

    Bullitt Central would win that game but it was anything but easy.

    The lesson was simple - never take any game for granted.

    In an important 23rd District game, North Bullitt took control in the very first inning to win 8-2 over the Mustangs.

  • BE drops one, wins three

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The way the Bullitt East Chargers have been struggling at the plate this season, it was just a matter of time before a strong pitching performance was going to be wasted.

    That day finally came last Tuesday when the Chargers gave up three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning and lost to district rival Jeffersontown 3-2. Bullitt East had just five hits in the game and wasted a strong effort from senior Zac Ching, who pitched the first six innings.

  • Local girls win 15 of 18 events in border war

     BARDSTOWN – The Border Battle, a track and field meet between the three public schools from Bullitt County against the three schools in Nelson County, had split winners this year.

         For Bullitt County, most of the success came on the girls’ side as Bullitt East, North Bullitt and Bullitt Central combined to win 15 of the 18 events contested. Individual school scores were kept with Bullitt East edging past North Bullitt 133 to 119.5. Bullitt Central was fourth with 80 points.

  • Bullitt Central girls' tennis having a winning season

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The regional tennis action is getting closer for local teams. 

  • With a 0.61 ERA, pitching is doing it all for Chargers

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The offense is still sputtering, but the Bullitt East Chargers are doing everything else right as they posted three more wins last week.

    The wins are coming from stout pitching and enough good defense to keep teams at bay. In the three wins last week, the Chargers allowed just three runs and only one of those runs was earned.

    Overall,  the Chargers are now 15-4 after starting the season 2-2.

  • Eagles win pitching duel from Trojans 1-0 in eight

     HEBRON ESTATES - The last time the two teams met in the regular season, Jacob Kelly threw a no-hitter.

    On Tuesday, North Bullitt hurlers Josh Exton and Kelly combined to blank the Southern Trojans.

    Scoring in the bottom of the eighth inning, North Bullitt won a key district game 1-0.

    Exton struck out 10 batters in six innings and Kelly struck out two as he gained his fifth victory in as many decisions.

    The traditional winds of North Bullitt had a bit of a nip in the air. It was another tough day for the batters.

  • Central won the one game last week that counted

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – If you are going to win just one game a week in the middle of the high school baseball season, then winning the game against your district rivals makes that job one.

    The Bullitt Central Cougars did just that last week, posting a 1-2 mark, but winning the most important game as they rallied late to beat Moore 8-3. That win was sandwiched between a 9-1 setback to Manual and a 13-3 loss to Forest Park, a team from Indiana, on Saturday.
