  • Tough loss early haunts BC baseball for a week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – When is a loss more than a single loss? When it comes in the eighth inning against your arch-rival.

    That is what happened to Bullitt Central last week. On Monday, the Cougars played well against North Bullitt, but lost to a run in the bottom of the eighth inning.

  • There was an All-County track meet--sort of

    BARDSTOWN-- After being rained out on their original date and then not being able to get everyone together later in the week for the Bardstown Invitational, the three Bullitt County track programs all jumped into an All-Comers Meet at Thomas Nelson High School last Thursday for what was listed as the All-Bullitt County Meet.
        The All-County designation was a little misleading as six other schools were also taking part in the meet. Plus, since the event was added to everyone's schedule at the last minute, not all of the teams were at full strength.

  • BE's Norris reaches state tennis tourney

    FRANKFORT--Bullitt East senior Hunter Norris moved into rarified air last week when he qualified for a third straight trip to the Boys' Kentucky State Tennis Tournament as he reached the semi-finals of the Eighth Region Tournament at Franklin County High School.
        Norris had twice previously gotten to Lexington for the state tourney in doubles along with partner Reese Milburn. After Milburn's graduation, Norris switched over to singles and with the spot in the semi-finals, advanced to the state tourney.

  • Lady Chargers find missing offense just in time

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A week ago, Bullitt East Lady Chargers softball coach Ricky Hoffman said his team’s offense was ‘in a slump’ after a two week stretch in which the team lost a number of games to some of the state’s top teams.

  • Chargers play it like post-season in three game run

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For three straight weeks, Bullitt East baseball head coach Jeff Bowles has been running his team through ‘mini regional tournaments’, three game series against top-flight competition.

    After going 3-0 over three days in the Louisville Invitational Tournament the previous weekend, the Chargers faced any even tough group of teams late last week, but the red and gold responded well, beating Sixth Region rivals DeSales and Butler sandwiched around an extra-inning loss to defending state champion Pleasure Ridge Park.

  • Run in eighth lifts Eagles past Central 2-1

      HEBRON ESTATES – A throw over third base in the bottom of the eighth inning allowed a run to score as the North Bullitt Eagles pulled out a 2-1 victory over Bullitt Central on Monday.

    The game had been pushed back a week because of bad weather the previous Monday, but the wait was worth it as the two county rivals and 23rd District combatants put on a classic battle that wasn’t decided until the final moment.

  • No hits? Not a problem for NB during 3-1 win

     HEBRON ESTATES - You survive a lightning delay on the road to win in 12 innings.

    You throw an eighth grader on the hill for his first varsity start, you get no hits but still win.

    You run-rule a team that has beaten Trinity and St. Xavier this year.

    You do all three of those things and it’s been a pretty darn good week.

    Such is the life for head coach Brian Wise and his North Bullitt Eagles.

  • Tennis teams close out regular season

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- As the final days of the regular season approached, tennis coaches were busy figuring out who would play where in the upcoming Eighth Region tournament in Frankfort.

  • Area boys' teams did a lot of good things this season

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Through snow and sleet and bitterly cold temperatures, the three Bullitt County boys’ basketball teams delivered a season to remember over the winter.

         Bullitt East, Bullitt Central and North Bullitt all delivered winning records this season, but more importantly, for the first time ever, the three programs all reached the post-season. Bullitt East won the 24th District title while Bullitt Central slipped past North Bullitt in the 23rd District.

  • Girls' winning records show power

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the second time in the past three seasons, all three Bullitt County girls’ basketball teams advanced out of district play and into the Sixth Region Tournament.

         Add to that the fact that all three teams posted winning records and it all adds-up to another strong season for the three Bullitt County girls’ programs.
