  • Simpson pitches East past J-town

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Getting a complete game, three-hitter from junior Garrett Simpson, the Bullitt East Chargers started 24th District play on Tuesday with a 4-2 victory over Jeffersontown.

    With limited ‘game’ experience this spring because of the bad weather, Bullitt East head coach Jeff Bowles was not looking for Simpson to pitch a complete game, but the junior kept his pitch count low so the need never developed for a change.

  • BE, BC don’t win a lot, but win...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Nothing has come easy this spring for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers and while that probably won’t change for the young team this season, it is making them stronger.

    Much like the old saying ‘what doesn’t kill me, makes me stronger’ the Lady Chargers are getting better and learning even if the results are at times difficult for head coach Ricky Hoffman to swallow.

  • NB’s Ludwig & Hines combine...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The week didn’t start out well for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles but it sure did get better as it moved along culminating in a combined perfect game on Friday as the green and gold beat visiting Nelson County 13-0.

    Senior Madison Ludwig got the start and worked the first four innings and did not allow a base runner by Nelson County. Elizabeth Hines then came on and retired all three batters she faced in the fifth inning, ending the game with a line-out to the second baseman.

  • Track playing second fiddle to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Like all the other spring sports, it has been a difficult start to the season for the area high school track programs.

    Through no fault of their own, the three Bullitt County programs have spent more time on the sideline than in action due to the crazy weather since the season could have started in early March. In fact, early season meets at both Bullitt Central and Bullitt East were canceled due to cold/rainy/snowy conditions back before spring break.

  • BE gets ‘big’ match win

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Bullitt East played a match on Wednesday that got a whole lot of people in action on the tennis court.

    The Chargers defeated Butler 5-4.

    Bypassing the normal match setup, coach Dustin Armstrong’s team played three courts of doubles and six singles matches.

    He said this allowed both coaches to take a look at players in both singles and doubles action as the regional tournament quickly approaches.

  • Basketball is forever in the...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Everybody loves snow at Christmas.

    Nobody likes snow when it is four weeks into the start of the baseball and softball seasons.

    Yet even this past weekend, snow has been part of the conversation despite temperatures near 80 late last week.

    Oh well. At some point spring will really arrive and stay. In the mean time, let me clean out my note pad on a few things sports related.

  • Shepherdsville 4th, CG 11th in...

     LOUISVILLE – The recent Kentucky NASP State Tournament had not only divisions for high school teams and middle school programs, but also had competition for elementary schools during the event at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center.

    Nine elementary schools from Bullitt County had at least one competitor taking part in an event that had 81 teams and 1,766 young competitors. The National Archery in Schools Program is now fully-entrenched in the state at all levels.

  • Eagles grab first win and a lot...

      MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — The start of the 2018 season has not been what coach Brian Wise and his North Bullitt Eagles would have wanted.

    However, getting a big win on Friday in the finale of the Cal Ripkin Experience made the trip back from Myrtle Beach a whole lot more enjoyable.

    The 12-2 victory over Bishop Watterson of Columbus, Ohio, was the first in seven outings for the Eagles.

    But, it showed that when you pitch well and defend well, you can win ball games.

  • Bullitt East rolls in Florida...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Off to a 6-0 start this season, the Bullitt East Chargers were ready to cap a successful spring break trip to Florida, but came out flat on Friday morning and dropped a 10-0 decision to a team from Highland Park in Illinois.

    That loss put a damper on what was still a successful week at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World for the red and gold. More than anything, the team played five games, a great improvement after playing two games in two weeks at home because of bad weather.

  • BC leaves bad weather, then...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Heading out of town for spring break in search of good weather, the Bullitt Central baseball team instead found more bad weather on a week-long trip to Alabama.

    Originally scheduled to play four games, the Cougars played just two varsity contests. That means that through the first three weeks of the season, coach G.J. Moore’s team has played only four games, standing at 1-3 heading into the important district games over the next few weeks.
