  • Ferguson is following his dream

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – There hasn’t been a high school senior who hasn’t been advised ‘to follow your dreams.’

         Bullitt East senior football player Dylan Ferguson is doing just that. His dream has always been to play college football at the highest level – Division I. After the fact that he never got an offer of a scholarship to join one of those programs, Ferguson took the next best thing, becoming a walk-on player at Western Kentucky University.

  • NB, BE track teams compete in...

    LOUISVILLE – New to Class AAA, the track teams at Bullitt East and North Bullitt wanted to get the lay of the land in their new environs so both teams traveled into Jefferson County last Tuesday to compete in an All-Comers Meet at Male High School.

         Male High School will be the site of the Class AAA regional meet in May in which both schools will be competing for the first time after years in Class AA.

  • BE girls go 2-1 in Florida games

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For the second time in a year, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers played a 12-inning game.

    The good news this time is that coach Ricky Hoffman’s team pulled out the victory last Thursday as they got a three-run home run from freshman Lindsey Renneisen to defeat Delaware Hayes High School, a team from Pennsylvania. The game was played at the ESPN Wide World of Sports facility where the team was spending spring break.

    Bullitt East got the win despite making four errors and being outhit 12 to five.

  • Bad luck is the only luck for BC

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It has been written many times before, but for the 2014 Bullitt Central softball program, it is still true that ‘if it wasn’t for bad luck, there would be no luck at all.”

    That is the way that first-year head coach Mike Phillips is seeing this season unfold. On a trip this past weekend to the Play It Again Classic in Clarksville, Tenn. the team’s two seniors both suffered injuries that severely limited the Lady Cougars’ ability to compete against some strong teams.

  • Fun, sun and wins for Eagles on...

     MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - It’s a business trip with a little fun mixed in.

    After after five days of sun and fun on the shores of Myrtle Beach, North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise was pleased with the play of his Eagles.

    The Eagles returned to the spring showers of Bullitt County sporting a 5-5 record on the young season.

  • Charger baseball has perfect...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers had such a good time on their spring break trip to Florida that they came home a day early.

    True story.

    Actually, the Chargers did come home a day early. Well, at least some of the group did. That was because that after four straight wins, the team they were supposed to play on Friday at the ESPN Wide World of Sports begged out of playing another game that week, saying that they had some injuries and were short on pitching.

  • Area track teams full speed...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The high school track and field season will kick into high gear this week after the teams return to school from spring break.

    In fact, the North Bullitt Eagles will be back in action after making a trip to Florida over spring break, a first for a local track program.

  • Cougars post 2-2 mark over...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – It hasn’t been a great start to the 2014 baseball season for the Bullitt Central Cougars, but staying near home and winning two of four games might be more important than heading to Florida for spring break.

         Unlike most area teams, the Cougars stayed at home for spring break. Instead, head coach G.J. Moore opted to once again play in the General Spring Break Bash as Thomas Nelson High School. The Cougars won the event last year, beating Edmonson County in the final game.

  • BC's Fulkerson signs to...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Football will stay in Jacob Fulkerson’s life for the next few seasons after the Bullitt Central senior recently signed to play the sport at Thomas More College in Crestview Hills, Kentucky.

         After being on the Bullitt Central varsity the past three seasons, Fulkerson got a recruiting email from the coaching staff at the school. He responded and that got the ball rolling. There were a few other options, but none that were as close to home as the school in northern Kentucky, just south of Cincinnati.
