  • CHASING THE DREAM: Bickett works...

     PIONEER VILLAGE -- After sitting on the bench for most of his high school varsity career, Evan Bickett packed up his glove for what was presumably the last time. 

    The plan was simple: go to Indiana University Southeast and earn a criminal justice degree. 

    No more baseball, strictly academics.

    In the back of his mind, though, Bickett knew there was a chance to do something more.

  • Blue Lick wins state; looks for...

     OKOLONA -- Coaching youth baseball for 45 years, Challis Ford has been close but he’s never had a team make the World Series at any age group.

    After his Blue Lick team won its second consecutive state title, Ford had a simple request -- take an old man who loves baseball to that national Babe Ruth tournament.

    Manager Tommy Parker, Ford’s long-time friend and coach, believes this group of 18 and under players might be that team to make that dream possible.

  • Summer may have just started,...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – The baseball All-Star game was just last week, the Fourth of July is still a vivid memory and summer has officially been with us for less than a month.
        The not so tactfully named ‘dead period’ is well...dead and gone for another summer.
        Yet fall starts next Friday.

  • Dolphins at Cooper Farms have 80...

         HILLVIEW – Summer and swimming.
        The two are pretty much inseparable for many youngsters and for six weeks this summer 80 local swimmers took their summer fun to a competitive level diving into the water for the Dolphins at Cooper Farms.

  • It was a red, white, blue and...

     There was no way to avoid the rain, but the Bullitt Blast Dash 5K went on anyway under the sponsorship of the Bullitt County YMCA.

    The race/run/walk has become an annual Fourth of July event in Shepherdsville and there was a large turnout despite the inclement weather.

    Some of the runners took the event more seriously than others, but everyone had a good time.

  • McCormick taking basketball...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Blaise McCormick, who played four years at Portland Christian in Jefferson County, has signed to play his college basketball at Asbury College in Wilmore, Kentucky.
        McCormick, the son of Theresa and Steve McCormick, lives in Mount Washington, but has always attended private schools in Jefferson County.
        In his four years at Portland Christian, McCormick played under head coach Joe Meredith.

  • Eastside 1,600 relay team...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – A small contingent of local runners from three area middle schools competed last month in the Kentucky Track and Cross-Country Coaches Association State Track Championships at the University of Louisville.
        This was a huge meet with over 100 schools from across the state taking part. Only the top eight finishers in each event scored team points, but still, 51 girls’ teams and 54 boys’ teams ended up scoring at least one point in the event.

        FERN CREEK-- Not even a one-hour rain delay could keep the Under-8 Mount Washington All-Stars from roaring out of the loser's bracket on Sunday to capture the Kentucky Babe Ruth State Softball title at Fern Creek Park.
