  • Blue Lick 11s advance to state...

      BRANDENBURG - With a single swing of the bat, the post-season run of the Blue Lick 11 All-Stars basically came to a close.

    Jumping out quickly in the semifinal clash of the West Kentucky State Tournament Sunday in Brandenburg, Blue Lick had the early momentum.

    However, when Meade County cleanup hitter Justin Stowe stepped to the plate, a two-strike connection over the center-field fence reversed that momentum.

    The host team would go on to a 13-5 victory.

  • Tough state tourney for MW U-15...

     GERMANTOWN – After going 2-2 and finishing third in the Combined District 8, 9, 10, 11 Tournament a week earlier, the Mount Washington U-15 All-Stars found life a lot more difficult last week in the West Kentucky State Tournament hosted by the Germantown Youth League.

    In three games, coach Mark Deetsch team struggled against good teams, failing to win a game in three tries.

  • Next softball stop for Price is...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – If it worked out once, then try it again.

    That was the thinking of former Bullitt East softball standout Taylor Price as she returned to the Media Center at her former school to sign her second paperwork to continue playing her sport in college.

    In late May, Price signed to play her final two years in college for the Western Kentucky Lady Hilltoppers.

  • Baseball camps at East and...

       Both the Bullitt East and Bullitt Central high school baseball programs held their annual summer youth camps this year with a good number of young players taking part.

    Both camps worked on getting the basics down pat, covering, base-running, throwing, hitting and even nutrition and weight-training.

    Still, the biggest part of both camps was having fun and there was plenty of that to go around.

  • BE's Bogard signs with...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East softball program doesn’t need any holp from its county rivals, past or present, but that doesn’t mean the program and players won’t take a little when it is offered.

         Bullitt East senior Jeri Bogard got a nice assist from former Bullitt Central head coach Buddy Gallemore this spring as the first-year assistant coach at Midway College reached out to her and offered a spot in the Eagles’ program.

  • Local golfers excel this summer

    LOUISVILLE – The summer golf circuit, the Musselman-Dunne Golf Tour conducted by the Kentucky Junior Golf Foundation, came to positive finish last week for a number of local athletes.

         At the Tour Championship on Monday and Tuesday at Big Spring Country Club in Louisville, Mount Washington’s Ethan Breeden finished second with a 152 total, finishing just four strokes off the pace of winner Oliver Whatley of Louisville in the 15-16 boys’ division.

  • Short season, long effort for...

     HILLVIEW – In Kentucky, the summer swim season is never long enough.

    However, this summer, with the end of the school year pushed back into second week of June, the summer swim season for the Dolphins Swim Team was really short in 2014. Veteran team coach Kathy Abell had her swimmers for only five total weeks this summer compared to as many as eight or nine weeks in the past.

  • Big swing eliminates Blue Lick...

     OKOLONA - With one swing of the bat, the season ended for the Blue Lick 16-18 All-Stars.

    In the top of the fifth inning, Ben Parker hit a long two-run homer to propel Okolona over Blue Lick 5-3 in the quarterfinals of the state Babe Ruth baseball tournament.

    The host Okolona team would go on to win the state title and advance to the Ohio Valley regional tournament later this week in Wisconsin.

  • Local All-Star squads taking...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A number of local baseball All-Star teams will be taking part in Kentucky Babe Ruth State Tournaments this week.

    The team playing closest to home will be the Mount Washington Under-15 All-Stars who will be playing at Germantown in Louisville. That team is coming off a third-place finish in the last week’s combined district tournament at St. Matthews.

  • Blue Lick U-11 baseball stars...

    HILLVIEW -- They had to do it the hard way but the Blue Lick 11 All-Stars will be returning to the state tournament this week as the district champs.
