  • State Bowling Tourney turns...

      LEXINGTON – It was unfortunately a short visit to Lexington for the local bowlers who had qualified for last week’s Kentucky State Bowling Tournament at Collins Eastland Lanes.

    On Thursday, North Bullitt senior Errik Grant, coming off a herculean effort to finish as the runner-up in the Region Three Tournament a week earlier, struggled to find that magic at his first state meet and did not advance out of the qualifying round of the Boys’ Individual Tournament.

  • East’s Foster heading to Eastern...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It took a little longer than expected for the obvious to happen, but finally Bullitt East senior soccer standout Christian Foster was able to put pen to paper and sign a national letter-of-intent to play at the next level for the Eastern Kentucky Lady Colonels.

    It was earlier believed that Foster could sign in the fall during the early signing period, but a few days before that, the senior and her coaches learned that soccer players had to wait until the winter signing period. No problem. Foster never wavered from her commitment.

  • North’s Johnson makes it all...

     HEBRON ESTATES – It’s always good when you know exactly where you want ot go to college early in the process.

    That was certainly the case for North Bullitt senior Nate Johnson who last week singed to play his college football at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky.

    “I’ve known for a while now,” Johnson said after a ceremony last Wednesday in the North Bullitt Media Center. “They started (recruiting me) before anyone else. They started after my junior season.”

  • Be ready when fishing...

     FRANKFORT – Planning a fishing trip more than a couple days ahead of time can be a gamble in late winter when the weather is a mixed bag and the favorable conditions here today may be gone tomorrow.

    With some advance preparation, you can be ready to grab what you need and go when that friend calls at daybreak or the impulse strikes and the schedule allows for a last-minute trip.

    Performing regular maintenance on your reels can prevent catastrophic problems or costly repairs down the road.

  • Hard work allows Miller to lasso...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON-- Years of hard work have resulted in one Bullitt East student roping a college scholarship in a unique sport.

    For the first time ever, a Bullitt East High student has been awarded a rodeo scholarship.

    Blaine Miller has been riding horses since before he could walk.

    “I used to sit him on the saddle with me while I warmed up and, right before I went out, I’d hand him back to his mom,” said Rick Miller, Blaine’s father and retired-rodeo competitor.

  • Eastside to represent U.S. in...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON — If cheerleaders cheer for their team, then who cheers for the cheerleaders?

    At Eastside Middle, it’s the entire school.

    What started off as a normal Tuesday for students at Eastside ended in an auditorium chanting “USA” after it was announced that the Eastside cheerleaders will represent the United States as the junior cheerleading team in the upcoming Olympic-based World Championship competition.

  • East girls headed back to state...

     LOUISVILLE – Who needs the regular season?

    Certainly not the Bullitt East Lady Charger bowling team. With four seniors returning this season from a squad that reached the state tournament a year ago, head coach Ricky Hoffman expected a strong team from start to finish. It didn’t happen as the team struggled early in the season.

  • NB’s Grant second in boys’...

     LOUISVILLE – They say it is always darkest before the dawn.

    North Bullitt senior bowler Errik Grant will always believe that.

    Three frames into last week’s Region 3 Boys’ Tournament semi-finals of qualifying at Ken Bowl Lanes, Grant was so frustrated with his play that he turned to head coach Emily Knight and announced that his chance of improving his score to the top four and advancing to not only the step ladder portion of the event, but also of earning a bid to the state tournament, was completely out of reach.

  • BE has the numbers to repeat as...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt East had the manpower, as well as the womanpower, to repeat as the Bullitt Cup Wrestling Champions on Wednesday at Bullitt Central in the annual tri-match between the county’s three wrestling programs.

  • A Very Special Homecoming Night

     The Bullitt Central student body showed its love for Morgan Baggett on Friday as she was selected as homecoming queen.

    She is the daughter of Tonya Rumford and Curtis Baggett.

    Baggett, who has Down Syndrome, was representing the Best Buddies program at the school.

    She was accompanied by Gage Niedert, son of Karen Niedert.

    Tristin Logsdon, son of Kristina and Rob Logsdon, was selected as the Homecoming King.
