  • NB’s Stinson heads to Kentucky...

     HEBRON ESTATES – It turned out to be a great spring for North Bullitt senior baseball player Justin Stinson.

    Even before helping the Eagles win the school’s first regional baseball title and then advancing to the semi-finals of the Kentucky State Tournament, Stinson signed to play his favorite sport at NCAA Division II Kentucky State University.

  • 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.

  • BC's May signs to bowling...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – The dream of bowling at the college level came true for Bullitt Central senior Ridge May recently when he agreed to join the program at the University of Louisville.

         May is the first to say that he is more of a University of Kentucky fan, but that school doesn’t have a bowling program. That made it easy to stay close to home and bowl for the team coached by Bob Hellerich, who also is the head coach at Manual High School and saw May bowl many times over the past few years.

  • Lady Cougar Volleyball Camp

    SHEPHERDSVILLE--There was plenty of fun and action recently as the Bullitt Central Lady Cougar Youth Volleyball Camp.

    The three-night event drew roughly 50 girls to the Cougars' Gym for three hours of setting, serving hitting and blocking drills on two courts.

    The camp was under the direction of new Bullitt Central head coach Karen Vogt who stepped over to the Lady Cougar program after being an assistant coach at Bullitt East.

  • BC and NB teams eligible for...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – We are now firmly in the ‘dead period.’

         Fortunately, as of today, there is no word of any vampires, ghosts or zombies walking through any of our athletic facilities.

         The ‘dead period’ is the creation of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association. It is a two-week period from June 25 to July 9 in which high school coaches and athletic facilities and equipment cannot be in use.

  • BE's Pfister to continue...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After playing in 124 games for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers, senior forward Courtney Pfister decided that her future basketball prospects were best suited for Midway College in central Kentucky.

         Late in the spring, Pfister made it all official, signing with the NAIA Division II school in a ceremony in the Bullitt East Media Center. Pfister signed in front of her teammates, parents, friends and coaches.

  • BC’s McConahay signs with...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central senior Brett McConahay will be the first to admit that he had never heard of Kentucky Christian University when his high school football season ended with the Cougars last fall.

    He now knows a lot about the Knights this spring after signing to play football for the next four seasons at the small college in Grayson, Kentucky. The campus is located roughly 15 miles east of Ashland and right off I-64.

  • Scoreboard donation for Roby...

     Jim and Pam White of USA Portable Building had family members join them in the presentation of a new electronic scoreboard for the Roby Elementary gym. 

    Principal Gayle Korfhage said the donation will be very useful - from use in the PE classes to games played in the Bullitt County Parks and Recreation basketball program.

    USA Portable Buildings is a local company owned by the Whites. The owners have sales locations throughout the state and region.

  • Eagles’ Exton taking fast ball...

     HEBRON ESTATES – North Bullitt senior Josh Exton has enjoyed his time being an Eagle, both playing football and baseball.

    So, he decided to stay an Eagle, agreeing to a promotion to a Golden Eagle as he will be playing baseball starting in the fall at Spalding University in Louisville.

    Deciding on a college was just part of the process for Exton. First, he had to decide which sport he wanted to play at the next level. He admitted to preferring football, but he came to the realization that his talents were better suited for baseball.
