  • East girls finish fourth in...

      LOUISVILLE – One thing that the local track teams figured out quite quickly as part of Class 3-A, Region 3, is the simple fact that they are competing against some of the top track and field athletes in the state.

    After Male, St. Xavier, Manual and Central carve up a lot of the points, there is not always a lot left for the other teams. That also includes earning the automatic qualifying spots by finishing first or second.

  • BE stuns top-ranked Trinity

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers have lost eight one-run games this season, but the red and gold won a one-run game to remember on Saturday when they defeated the Trinity Shamrocks, the state’s top-ranked baseball team by a 5-4 count.

    Bullitt East trailed in the highlight game of the Valu-Market Charger Challenge 4-1 before scoring three times in the bottom of the sixth to tie the game before pushing across a run in the bottom of the seventh for the win.

  • North has uneven week against...

     HEBRON ESTATES – With a week of “scrimmages” left to play, North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise is feeling pretty good about his team.

    The Eagles needed a “better” week coming off a “bad” week to get ready for the May 22 District 23 opener against Southern.

    Wise got what he wanted. The Eagles finished the week 2-2; but, more importantly, he liked what he saw on the field.

    On Monday, the Eagles traveled to Oldham County and lost 13-7.

  • Confidence continues to multiply...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Since losing to defending state champion Scott County 2-1 on April 14 and falling to just 7-7 overall, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers have been on fire.

    Adding three more victories to the tally last week, coach Ricky Hoffman’s team has won ten of its last 11 games heading into the final week of the regular season. The team is now 17-8 overall with four games on the slate this week.

  • East finishes 10th in state...

     GILBERTSVILLE, KY. -- The Bullitt East boat of Dalton Smith and Will Rigdon finished tenth overall on Friday and Saturday at the 2017 KHSAA State Bass Fishing Championship on Kentucky Lake.

    Smith and Rigdon, who recently won the Region 2 title, are the first Bullitt County team to advance to the state tourney. This is the fourth year that the KHSAA has sponsored the sport at the state level.

  • North boys and East girls win...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- For the first time in four years, the All-Bulitt County Track and Field Championships were conducted on home soil last Monday when Bullitt East hosted their two county rivals.

    This was the third time this season Bullitt East has hosted a meet on their new rubberized track facility and Bullitt Central and North Bullitt competed in those meets also.

    All three local high schools have new, six-lane tracks and related facilities this season.

  • No local tennis players advance...

     LOUISVILLE – It wasn’t the best of times for local tennis early last week as for the first time since becoming part of the Sixth Region, no Bullitt County player advanced out of local play to compete in the upcoming state tournament.

    All four semi-finalists in singles and doubles in both the boys’ and girls’ tournaments qualified for the state tourney. While several local entries reached the quarter-final round, no entry could win the big match necessary to reach the semi-finals.

  • Pitch committee does enough as...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Veteran Bullitt East baseball coach Jeff Bowles will be the first to say that his team has a wealth of good pitchers.

    Unfortunately, the coach will also say that to this point, none of those pitchers has stepped forward to be the team’s ‘ace’, or a great pitcher.

  • Pair of local boaters head to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Coming off the programs’ first regional championship, the Bullitt East pair of Dalton Smith and Wil Rigdon will compete this week in the KHSAA Kentucky State Fishing Championships at Kentucky Dam Marina on Kentucky Lake on Friday and Saturday.

  • Lady Eagles maul Central 16-0

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Without a doubt, it has been a challenging spring for the softball teams from North Bullitt and Bullitt Central.

    With less than two weeks remaining in the regular season, the two teams have fewer combined wins than either team has losses. At times this spring, the losses have been less than competitive.
