  • NB’s Dunnavan signs with...

     HEBRON ESTATES – His senior season didn’t turn out as he had dreamed, but basketball will continue for North Bullitt senior Travis Dunnavan after he signed last week to play at Spalding University in Louisville.

    Dunnavan’s senior season was cut short by injuries that eventually required major knee surgery. The season hadn’t even started when he first hurt the knee but it was believed at the time to just be a sprain. Dunnavan played in the first game of the season, but then went down hard and sat out the next month.

  • KOSAIR KIDS

     The fifth annual Fishing for Kosair Kids crappie tournament, presented by the Mount Washington FOP Lodge 82, raised $8,821 for Kosair Charities.

    The top prizes went to Brian Estridge and Brian West (6.26 lbs); Joe and Katie Long (6.15 lbs); and Brian Wilson and John Willert (5.99 lbs).

  • Florida cures BE’s softball blues

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Just before leaving for Florida and spring break, the Bullitt East softball team picked up a huge victory over arch-rival Butler by a 2-1 score.

    That win seemed to snap the Lady Chargers out of some early-season doldrums and coach Ricky Hoffman’s team won its first three games in Florida at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex before dropping a tough 4-3 decision in the final game of the week.

  • North still seeking a winning...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The start of the 2017 season hasn’t been exactly what first-year North Bullitt softball coach Neal Hornback was hoping for in terms of wins and losses, but the team has shown enough ability that they should be in the thick of things when the regular season district games used for seeding start early next week.

    Coming out of two games on Saturday at the Tates Creek Spring Fling, the Lady Eagles had just one win in the first ten games of the season.

  • BE beats three teams, falls to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – If it were not for Oakwood High School, a team from Dayton, Ohio, it would have been a great spring break trip to Florida for the Bullitt East Chargers.

    Instead, it was just a pretty good week for the red and gold as the team beat three other squads who were all at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex in Kissimmee, Florida.

  • Eagles find winning ways in...

      MYRTLE BEACH – The annual pilgrimage to the Cal Ripken Experience in South Carolina was just what the coaches ordered for the North Bullitt Eagles.

    In their annual trip to the beach, the Eagles came home with a 4-1 record against some pretty good competition.

    “It was a really, really good week,” said head coach Brian Wise. “We got some good pitching and we hit the ball well.”

    As the Eagles prepared to enter District 23 play yesterday against Southern, Wise felt the adventure to South Carolina worked out well.

  • BC spends a lot of Florida trip...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – How often does a high school student get to wake-up, hear that school has been cancelled due to weather concerns and then goes and spends the day sitting on a beach.

    That is exactly what the Bullitt Central baseball team got to do last Wednesday during the squad’s trip to the Panama City Beach Bash during spring break.

  • 2017 All-Bullitt County...

      As part of the 2017 All-Bullitt County Basketball Team, Schmid Funeral Home presents the Male and Female Players of the Year with a trophy.

    The awards were recently presented to Bullitt East senior Charger player Jared Osborne while Lady Charger senior Lindsey Duvall won the award for the fourth time. Presenting the awards for Schmid Funeral Home were Mark Schmid and Tim Gonterman.

  • Track teams seem to have gotten...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The first track and field meet held in Bullitt County in four years turned out to be a success two weeks ago with Bullitt East hosting North Bullitt and Bullitt Central as well as Moore and Fern Creek.

    That is not to say that everything went perfectly, few track meets ever do, but it was a very positive first step. Much of the credit for the success goes to Bullitt East head coach Lenny Raley. No one person in Bullitt County is more important to a sport than Raley is to track.

  • BE slips past nemeses Butler 2-1

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It was a classic pitcher’s duel on Thursday between two teams that started the season ranked among the top dozen teams in the state when Bullitt East played host to its longtime thorn-in-the-side foe Butler.

    In the end, it was Bullitt East hurler Taylor Roby who got the best of Bearettes starter Annabelle Ramirez as the Lady Chargers pulled out a 2-1 victory.

    This was the first meeting between the rivals since Butler claimed a 1-0 victory a year ago in the first round of the Sixth Region tournament.
