  • MW U-9 All-Stars gain much...

    HIKES POINT Ð The Cal Ripken District 10 and 11 Tournament for the Mount Washington Under-9 All-Stars was a good learning experience for the team despite two quick losses in the tournament hosted by the Hikes Point Optimist League.
        Playing for head coach Tommy Brooks, this was the first summer All-Star play for the young players after competing with Machine-Pitch for the three previous summers.

  • After watching the World Cup,...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With soccer again in the American conscience, at least for the short term, after the U.S. Women’s National Team won its third World Cup title over the weekend, perhaps some additional Bullitt Countians will be interested in watching a high school match this fall.

    I will say that soccer was the sport that the Sports Editor played in his teen years. This was well before the high schools in Bullitt County offered the sport. We were a real ‘club team’ of Bullitt Central students. We coached ourselves and scheduled our own matches.

  • Rain can’t dampen Bullitt Blast...

     A little rain couldn’t dampen the fun for a large group of runners who took part in the Bullitt Blast Run/Dash on Saturday.

    A number of the runners were decked out in red, white and blue holiday garb for the 5K run and walk.

    The event was sponsored and conducted by the Bullitt County YMCA. This was the second year for the event.

    The race started in front of the Bullitt County YMCA and ran through the streets of Shepherdsville.

  • MW U-8 All-Stars are headed to...

     MIDDLETOWN – Rain made for a very long week for the Mount Washington U-8 Baseball All-Stars last week in the District Tournament at Crosby Park conducted by the East Louisville Sports Youth League.

  • End of the road for Blue Lick U-...

     OKOLONA -- It was yet another battle of familiar foes.

    While Blue Lick had defeated Germantown to win the district title, the young men in green would have the last laugh in the state tournament.

    By virtue of its 8-5 victory on Sunday, Germantown earned a berth in the Ohio Valley Regional Tournament, to be held in Lexington, no matter its outcome in the championship game against Hikes Point.

    In the loser’s bracket final, two mighty swings of the bat spelled doom for Blue Lick.

  • Blue Lick U-15 falls in district...

     OKOLONA -- It wasn’t pretty but you don’t get style points for beauty in the game of baseball.

    And the local All-Star team didn’t close out the district tourney with a pretty performance but it was good enough to earn a place in the state tournament.

    At the end of the marathon opener of the Babe Ruth 15 and under district baseball tournament, Blue Lick got out of town with a 13-11 victory.

    Okolona, down 8-1 at one point, had the tying run at the plate when Dayton Perkins recorded the final out.

  • Mt. Washington U-15 All-Stars to...

     LOUISVILLE – The Mount Washington U-15 All-Stars will join the Blue Lick All-Stars in this week’s West Kentucky U-15 State Tournament, but this team took a completely different route to the state event.

    In fact, the Mount Washington All-Stars have yet to play a game.

  • Diamond Fun at BC, BE baseball...

    It was baseball, baseball and more baseball for area youths recently as both Bullitt Central and Bullitt East conducted instructional camps during the month of June.

    The young players got a big dose of fundamentals for the sport as well as getting to play a number of games with help from the Cougar and Charger players as well as the team's coaches.

  • 'Dead Period' is not...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE - It might not seem that important to the casual high school sports fan, but the Kentucky "dead period" is an important two week period in the middle of the summer.
        In fact, this year, the KHSAA website has a countdown clock on its home page that counted down to the start of the "dead period" and has now switched to counting down the time to the end of the 15 day lull in activity.
        For the record, the "dead period" runs from 12:00.01 a.m. on June 25 to 11:59.59 p.m. on July 9.

  • Blue Lick wins title, starts in...

    HILLVIEW -- What started out with an egg ended up with as a golden goose for the Blue Lick 12-year-old All-Stars.
        After opening defense of its 2014 district title with a less-than-stellar performance, Blue Lick came back to win for elimination games.
        This gave Blue Lick the District 8/9 title as it opens state tournament play tonight.
        Blue Lick will seek to advance further than last year's semifinal setback.
