  • Sanders follows his dream to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Two years ago, Bullitt Central’s Sean Sanders would have bet his last dollar that his college athletic future lied with football.

    Sanders is 6-4, 280 pounds and one of the best football centers in the area. Football would have been a fine option.

  • Three area teams in new format...

     LOUISVILLE -- For years, the regional tennis tournament has determined individual players who would advance to the state tournament.

    The cumulative team scores from the individual matches would determine which squad would also advance to a separate state competition.

    This year, the rules have changed. 

    A separate team competition will be held in the 16 regions with the winning squads advancing to a state tournament.

    For Sixth Region teams, that will be conducted the week of May 2.

    All six schools will participate in the individual competition, which starts on May 9.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Again this spring it appears that when it comes to track and field, that the girls’ programs in the county are doing a little better than the boys’ teams.

    Now, with spring break in the rearview mirror, the track and field teams are starting to get in position for the post-season. With all three programs in Class 3-A, Region Three, they will all compete on the same day at the regional level. That big meet will be held on May 21 at St. Xavier starting at 9 a.m.

  • Lady Cougar softball wins two

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – While still not world-beaters, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars are showing some signs of being a competitive softball team after going 2-2 last week.

    Coach Mike Phillips team started this week with a 4-15 record.

    The most important win came on Wednesday when Bullitt Central mauled visiting Moore 16-1 in a district game that will be used to seed the post-season tournament. The Lady Cougars had beaten Moore earlier in the season.

  • East softball stays hot, wins...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The loneliest position on the Bullitt East Lady Charger softball squad this spring might just be that of the back-up pitcher.

    With one of the state’s top pitchers, sophomore Taylor Roby, hurling lights out this season, there hasn’t been the need for anyone else to throw. Bullitt East head coach Ricky Hoffman has talked about the position, but through the first 13 games of the season, Roby has thrown every pitch.

  • Charger baseball posts 3-1 week

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers went 3-1 last week and won a key game within the 24th District, but it was the only loss that left head coach Jeff Bowles shaking his head.

    For all the success his program has had in recent years, the Chargers just can’t seem to beat Sixth Region rival Pleasure Ridge Park, be it in the regular season or the post-season. That was the case again on Thursday as the Panthers beat the Chargers 7-2 in Mount Washington.

  • Consistency still eluding Central

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The only thing consistent about the Bullitt Central baseball team this spring is inconsistency.

    That was definitely the story last week as the maroon and gray posted a 2-2 mark. The team’s record starting this week is now 8-12.

    Unfortunately, the week started on a really bad note as the Cougars dropped a 3-2 decision to Moore, a contest that will be used for seeding the 23rd District Tournament in May.
