  • Barren Co. cools MW U-8 All-Stars

     FERN CREEK –  After a hot start the Mount Washington U-8 All-Stars cooled off quickly in the quarter-finals of the Babe Ruth Kentucky State Tournament on Saturday at Fern Creek Park in Louisville.

    In the opening games of ‘pool’ play, the team coached by Dave Johnston slipped past Jeffersontown 15-13 and then crushed Fern Creek Orange by a 23-9 score. Those games were played on Thursday and Friday.

    That left the team with the number two seed from the pool heading into the quarter-finals.

    SHEPHERDSVILLE--A summer tradition in the area is the baskeball camps during the month of June. Because of the late ending to the school year, all of the June camps fell the same week.

    At Bullitt East, Lady Charger head coach Chris Stallings conducted the 24th rendition of the Charger Basketball Camp and had over 250 campers in two sessions.

    At Bullitt Central, girls' basketball coach Kyle Roach and boys' coach Joe Pat Lee once again held single session camps that were filled with dribbling, running and shooting.

  • Americana!! Summer All-Star...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Fourth of July on Friday.

    The start of Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth All-Star Baseball and Softball Tournaments on Saturday.

    You can’t get much more Americana than that.

    I’m not as young as I used to be and I’m not as old as I will be, but I probably sound like a 13-year old when I say that this might be the shortest summer in history. So, we have to take our traditional summer events where we can get them. This weekend provides a double dose of tradition.
