  • Summer All-Star action heats up...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The summer Baseball and Softball All-Star season is upon us and once again there will be plenty of action all-around the area including a first-ever trip to Spencer County, a program that recently moved to Cal Ripkin/Babe Ruth play.

  • Area middle schoolers had big...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – Finally with a place to host larger meets, the six Bullitt County middle schools got together in May and held an All-County Championship meet after not being able to do it because of a lack of a suitable track.

    Now with the new tracks at all three high schools, the middle school competed at Bullitt East this year to crown champions in 12 events for both the boys and the girls.

    In the team races Eastside was the bigger winner as that program won both the boys’ and girls’ events.

  • BE cheerleading pair headed to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East’s highly regarded cheerleading program has sent two more athletes to a top college program as seniors Brooke Stivers and Alyssa Huen both recently signed to continue their cheerleading at Western Kentucky University.

    In May, both of the Charger seniors went through a try-out camp in Bowling Green and both were accepted into the All-Girls program, a team that finished fourth this past season at the UCA National Championships in Orlando.

    The Hilltopper’s All-Girls squad is coached by Josh Bewley.

  • East’s Smith signs to fish for...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- A love for all things outdoors paid off recently for Bullitt East senior Dalton Smith when he signed to join the fishing program at Campbellsville University.

    Smith helped create the Bullitt East fishing program several years ago and he has also been a major contributor to the Chargers’ highly successful archery program.

  • Motorsports rule the night at...

     CLERMONT -- A little dirt. 

    A little smoke.

    A little fire.

    Some bent metal.

    Not enough mud.

    And a whole lot of noise.

    Patrons to the 2017 Bullitt County Fair got a healthy dose of all of the above last week as the weather was perfect just about every night to sit out and watch motorsports at the dirt arena.

  • BE’s Masden headed to Bellarmine...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Three years ago, Bullitt East’s Lauren Masden would have predicted that she would be signing grant-in-aid papers to attend the college or her choice in the spring of 2017.

    Masden would have also told you that she would be signing to be a basketball player.

    As it turns out, Masden had the big picture right, but she missed on the sport. Instead, the Charger senior recently signed with Bellarmine University to join the track and field program as a distance runner.

  • BE’s Green to compete in track...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Coming out of Eastside Middle School, Connor Green was a basketball and baseball player. Even in middle school, he was part of the Bullitt East baseball program.

    But midway through his sophomore season, Bullitt East track coach Lenny Raley started preaching the Green the positives of that sport. With baseball losing ground, Green opted to join the track team that spring.

    He has never looked back.

  • Hallelujah!! BC and BE to meet...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – If you are not already sitting down, you might want to be pull up a chair before you read any further.

    Here goes.

    After three years of constantly avoiding each other in basketball, Bullitt Central and Bullitt East have scheduled each other in both boys’ and girls’ games next season. Or at least they will complete that task soon.

  • Work continues on MW park,...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON — The ground is broken and the project is moving along on the new Mount Washington Community Park.

    According to Parks Director Sheryl Paxton, current plans for the park to be finished in the fall of 2018 are still on schedule.

    The $5.65 million contract with Woodbine Construction was approved in March by the city council. Work on leveling the land has already started and Park View Avenue (the connecting road between Landis Lane and Wales Run Road that will also serve as the entrance to park) is open for drivers.

  • All-Star weekend puts spotlight...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the middle of June, there was a lot of activity in the area this past weekend.

    In Louisville, a pair of local players took part in the Kentucky High School Coaches Association East/West Junior All-Star Basketball Game at Bellarmine University.

    This is a normal summer event as this was the 30th annual contests with the best rising seniors from the Fifth and Sixth Region taking on their counterparts from the Seventh and Eighth Region. There was a good crowd this season as almost 1,000 fans took in the two contests.
