  • Lady Eagle tennis team opens...

     LOUISVILLE -- With Mother Nature spoiling two inter-county battles earlier in the week, the North Bullitt girls’ tennis team had a winning opening match on Thursday.

    The Lady Eagles went to Louisville and defeated Mercy Academy 3-2.

    It took a pair of third-set tiebreakers to push Shane Cunningham’s team to the win.

    Junior Shanna Blocker collected the first victory of the day with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Jenna Saultzman.

  • Rolling Hills’ Jensen signs for...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Two years ago, Baylee Jensen took care of two tough decisions by making one decision.

    Looking for a volleyball program to hone her skills, Jensen met up with the Central Kentucky Volleyball Academy in Campbellsville. The program is under the direction of Amy and Stephen Zink who just happen to be the coaches at Campbellsville University.

    After two years of seeing Jensen’s ability up close, Campbellsville was the obvious spot for the 6-foot-3 middle blocker to call home for the next four years.

  • Rolling Hills Christian wins...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was another banner season for the Rolling Hills Christian Tornados volleyball team – literally.

    For the fifth straight season, the program was able to raise a banner as the Kentucky Christian School Athletic Association Class 4-A State Champions. The title came in late February at the State Tournament at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

  • Lady Chargers seeking post-...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Over the past several seasons, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers have been one of the best softball programs in the state – in the regular season.

    Despite that fact, the red and gold have very little to show for it in the post-season.

    Over the past four seasons, Bullitt East has averaged 25 wins a season only to lose in the 24th District Tournament final in each of those seasons. Even more frustrating is the fact that the team has gone 2-4 in Sixth Region play and has not advanced past the semi-finals.

  • North under new management with...

     HEBRON ESTATES – After being an assistant coach the past two seasons at Ballard and two more seasons as an assistant coach at Whitefield Academy, Neal Hornback felt he was ready to become a high school softball head coach.

    He just didn’t know that the school closest to his home would end up being where he landed.

    It was really a whirlwind turn of events that landed Hornback at North Bullitt. Former Lady Eagle head coach Mike Nally did not return to his position. That decision had nothing to do with his work in the program.

  • Chargers have plans to reload,...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – 2016 was another banner season for the Bullitt East baseball program.

    Under veteran head coach Jeff Bowles, the Chargers got hot over the second half of the season and then rolled in the post-season. The red and gold won a 24th District title and then captured their first regional title since 2008 with a 14-6 win over DeSales in the championship game of the Sixth Region Tournament.

  • Eagles looking to return to the...

     HEBRON ESTATES – For the past few years, North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise has felt like the hunted.

    With two appearances in the state baseball tourney and a consistent participant in the Sixth Region tournament, North Bullitt has had a target on its back.

    This season, that target can go to another program.

    For Wise, it is a total rebuilding year as none of the eight starters will return to the same positions as a year ago.

  • Cougars poised to take a big...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Over the past decade or more, when the Bullitt Central baseball program loses a strong ‘core’ group of players who have been the face of the program for several years, it has taken the program some time to get back to that level of play.

    Now, as the Cougars suffered heavy graduation losses last spring, veteran head coach G.J. Moore is looking to remain just as good, if not better, this time around.

  • Area tennis teams ready for...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – While the early March weather is a bit unpredictable, tennis players in the area are back on the courts.

    The regular season begins this week for high school tennis teams with all looking toward regional action in early May.

    Bullitt Central

    Tiffany Gossett will be doing double duty this year as she coaches both the boys and the girls at Bullitt Central.

    On the girls’ side, Gossett will have an experienced squad.

  • Inspired effort comes up just...

      VALLEY STATION – The effort was stellar, but the shooting was lacking on Saturday for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers in the Championship Game of the Girls’ Class Act Sixth Region Tournament at Valley High School.

    The defensive performance was remarkable as Bullitt East held the state’s top-ranked team to 21 points below their season average. However, the Lady Chargers just could not overcome 29.5 percent shooting from the field along with 56 percent shooting at the foul line.
