  • Lady Chargers have all the...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt East and Bullitt Central hadn’t met on the softball diamond since 2015 and maybe it should have been one more year as the rebuilding Lady Cougars were no match for the Lady Chargers on Friday, as the red and gold rolled to a 26-2 victory in a three-inning contest.

    This one was just not close as Bullitt Central had to use a pair of young and inexperienced pitchers against a Bullitt East line-up that while young has recently been showing signs of rounding into a competitive team.

  • BC will compete Thursday in...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central will have both its boys’ and girls’  teams competing on Thursday in the KHSAA State Archery Championships at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

  • North Bullitt softball continues...

     HEBRON ESTATES – A week with five wins in six games pushed the North Bullitt Lady Eagles over the .500 mark at 9-8 for the first time this season.

    Head coach Chad Laswell is finding games wherever he can after the slow start to the season due to bad weather. That included playing two games on Sunday at Bethlehem in a ‘triangle’ event that had originally been scheduled for the previous Saturday.

  • BC wins two then falters Saturday

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – The week started out well for the Bullitt Central baseball squad with a pair of wins, but then a road trip on Saturday brought the squad back to earth as they dropped a pair of games in which they played poor defense.

    The good news was at the start of the week as the Cougars got a strong outing from senior pitcher Callon Willet and beat Nelson County 1-0 on the road.

    Willet needed just 92 pitches for the victory as he finished with seven strikeouts and just two walks. Nelson County finished with four hits, all singles.

  • NB still finding wins to be...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- He’s not pleased with the record  but records don’t really mean anything in the big scheme of things.

    North Bullitt baseball coach Brian Wise is more worried about getting all the pieces together to make a post-season run.

    With that in mind, the most important games of the regular season await — Thursday at Bullitt Central and Monday at home against Southern.

    Those will determine if North Bullitt will enter the 23rd District tournament as a top seed.

  • Chargers drop one, then win...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There was a frustrating 1-0 loss to open play last week, but the Bullitt East Chargers channeled that setback into three straight wins as the red and gold moved to 11-3 for the season.

    The setback came on Tuesday at home against Christian Academy despite an outstanding pitching performance from junior Jarrett Wantye as he allowed just three hits. Unfortunately, two of those hits came in the top of the sixth inning when the Centurions scored the winning run with a single, a ground-out and then a double.

  • Tennis teams get on courts as...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Despite a week that included heavy snow showers, spring sports are quickly approaching the post-season for tennis players.

    Activities on the court have intensified as regional play begins the second week of May.

    The annual Bullitt County basketball Players of the Year were recently honored. The annual selection is sponsored by Schmid Funeral Home, The Awards Center and The Pioneer News. This year’s winners were Luke Ezell of the Bullitt East Chargers. The top female player was Hailey Free of North Bullitt High School. Tim Gonterman and Mark Schmid of Schmid Funeral Home presented the players with the annual trophy.

  • Trojans slip past BC in 2-1 duel

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – All spring, Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore has been lamenting his team’s lack of pitching depth, a situation that has gotten worse, not better, as injuries have slowed the team through the first four weeks of the campaign.

    That situation was highly evident last week despite the fact that the team played just two games. On Tuesday, the Cougars got a strong pitching performance from senior Callon Willet against 23rd District rival Southern, but the Cougars lost a 2-1 decision.

  • North gets early jump on...

     HIGHVIEW — Forget about the non-district games.

    The road to the Sixth Region baseball tournament revolves about the three district games and the ensuing tournament.

    For North Bullitt, the “real” season started off in fine form on Tuesday.

    The Eagles went to Moore and defeated the Mustangs 13-0 in five innings.

    Normally, when you place four pitchers on the mound, it’s not a good thing. For North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise, it was a great opportunity.
