  • BC finds the magic, wins three...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – On the strength of three strong pitching performances, the Bullitt Central Cougars sailed through last week with three straight wins including an 8-0 victory over Moore in the first of three 23rd District games during the regular season.

    “It was not a bad week for us at all,” veteran Bullitt Central head coach G.J. Moore said on Sunday. “We needed a good week.”

    The three wins improved Bullitt Central’s record to 7-10 as it was the team’s second three-game winning streak of the spring.

  • Consistency is still a goal for...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- There was a lot to like about what all three area softball teams did last week except for consistency.

    That will be one of the talking points over the next three weeks as the teams race to the post-season. That route will be made more clear this week as all three teams have district contests.

    North Bullitt and Bullitt Central were supposed to play on Monday of this week, but wet conditions forced that game to be postponed. As of Monday night, no make-up date had been set.

    BC Making Strides

  • East wins two of three, but...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After a less than sterling trip to Florida over spring break, the Bullitt East Chargers returned home and played some better baseball last week, winning two of three contests.

    The only negative was that the weather was not as good as it had been in Florida. In fact, the team lost a game on Tuesday against Thomas Nelson, but head coach Jeff Bowles was able to add a game on Wednesday when Taylor County made a visit to Mount Washington.

  • NB gets jump on district by...

     OKOLONA -- When Jacob Kelly graduates in June, the Southern baseball team may send him a present.

    The Trojans are probably tired of seeing the left-hander on the mound.

    From throwing a no-hitter to putting them out of district tournament play, Kelly has been a thorn in the Trojan side -- primarily from the mound.

    But, on Wednesday, the lefty was a force from the hill and from in the batter’s box.

    In the District 23 opener, North Bullitt put its seal on being the favorite to earn a top seed with a 10-2 win.

  • Spring turkey season opens...

     FRANKFORT - The wait is almost over for turkey hunters in Kentucky.

    A calendar shift pushed the state’s 23-day general spring wild turkey season back this year to the third weekend in April. It opens Saturday, April 18 and runs through May 10.

    Last spring, hunters in Kentucky reported taking 29,943 turkeys.

  • Area girls' track teams...

    BARDSTOWN-- The rivalry between the North Bullitt and Bullitt East girls' track teams picked up right where it left off before spring break on Thursday when the teams once again met up at the Cardinal Classic at Nelson County High School.
        Actually, on the girls' side, while there were 13 schools taking part, 15 of the day's 16 events were won by athletes from one of the Bullitt County teams (Bullitt Central was also taking part) or Elizabethtown High School.

  • Federated Auto Parts 200 ARCA...

     SALEM, IN - The ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards is heading home, or so it may feel anyway.

        North Bullitt
        The wins are continuing to roll in for the North Bullitt girls' program.
        On Tuesday, the squad went to Butler and came home with a 5-1 victory.

  • BE's Spencer casts his lot...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- When you are a 5-foot-8 offensive lineman, you don't really draw a lot of attention from college football coaches...or your high school coach.
        That was the position that Bullitt East senior Spencer Warren found himself as a sophomore in the Charger program. He loved football, he wasn't big enough to see much playing time.
