High School Sports

  • Central cannot get healthy

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – When the season started, first-year Bullitt Central softball coach Mike Phillips felt he was strong at the pitching position.

    That situation lasted just about three weeks. As of last week, Phillips was having to cancel or postpone games because he had no varsity pitching available. The coach didn’t feel that it would be fair to the team’s foes to put young and inexperienced players against top-tier competition.

    That will be the case again this week as Phillips is taking it one game at a time.

  • Chargers score last to slip past Eagles 3-2

     HEBRON ESTATES - It was a pitcher’s dream.

    A nice, warm day with the winds blowing into the face of the batters.

    The batters struggled on Saturday but the Bullitt East Chargers got a few more “freebies” at opportune times to scratch out a 3-2 victory over county rival North Bullitt.

    While the teams are no longer in the same district, such games always mean a little more.

  • Hitting is better but BC struggling to hold leads

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Over the first few weeks of the season, Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore lamented his team’s lack of hitting, giving his pitchers little chance of getting wins.

    Coming out of spring break, the Cougars suddenly shifted gears. The hitting picked up and so did the run production, but then the Cougars started giving up a big inning. That led to some long games and big totals. Finally, that translated into a 1-1 week that saw the Cougars score 20 runs while giving up 23.

  • Pitching continues to carry Chargers to wins

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers have done a lot right this spring in posting a 12-4 record near the midway point of the high school baseball season.

    In fact, they have pretty much done everything right except hit the ball. The pitching has been formidable and the defense has done enough right most of the time to keep the pitchers in games. It is just at the plate where the Chargers have a lot of room for improvement.

  • Tennis back to speed after break

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Local tennis teams have been dancing around the spring weather as the regional tournament is now a month away.

  • Coulter signs with Campbellsville

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior football player Cruise Coulter has a nose for the endzone.

         That ability certainly caught the eye of the coaches at Campbellsville University and last week Coulter opted to become a Tiger, announcing it at a gathering in the Bullitt East Media Center in front of family, coaching and teammates.

         The next day, the Bullitt East senior was going to head to Campbellsville where he was going to watch the Tigers’ spring game as well as complete all the paperwork.

  • Ferguson is following his dream

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – There hasn’t been a high school senior who hasn’t been advised ‘to follow your dreams.’

         Bullitt East senior football player Dylan Ferguson is doing just that. His dream has always been to play college football at the highest level – Division I. After the fact that he never got an offer of a scholarship to join one of those programs, Ferguson took the next best thing, becoming a walk-on player at Western Kentucky University.

  • NB, BE track teams compete in meet at Male HS

    LOUISVILLE – New to Class AAA, the track teams at Bullitt East and North Bullitt wanted to get the lay of the land in their new environs so both teams traveled into Jefferson County last Tuesday to compete in an All-Comers Meet at Male High School.

         Male High School will be the site of the Class AAA regional meet in May in which both schools will be competing for the first time after years in Class AA.

  • BE girls go 2-1 in Florida games

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For the second time in a year, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers played a 12-inning game.

    The good news this time is that coach Ricky Hoffman’s team pulled out the victory last Thursday as they got a three-run home run from freshman Lindsey Renneisen to defeat Delaware Hayes High School, a team from Pennsylvania. The game was played at the ESPN Wide World of Sports facility where the team was spending spring break.

    Bullitt East got the win despite making four errors and being outhit 12 to five.

  • Bad luck is the only luck for BC

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It has been written many times before, but for the 2014 Bullitt Central softball program, it is still true that ‘if it wasn’t for bad luck, there would be no luck at all.”

    That is the way that first-year head coach Mike Phillips is seeing this season unfold. On a trip this past weekend to the Play It Again Classic in Clarksville, Tenn. the team’s two seniors both suffered injuries that severely limited the Lady Cougars’ ability to compete against some strong teams.
