  • Highlands ends Eagles'...

    LEXINGTON -- Baseball is a game of inches.

    Sometimes the plays go in your favor. Sometimes they do not.

    On Wednesday evening, the second magical season for the North Bullitt Eagles came to a close. This time, in the quarterfinals of the Rawlings KHSAA State Baseball Tournament.

  • NB's Zachery ready for golf...

    HEBRON ESTATES – Deciding to play golf at North Bullitt for the past two seasons paid off handsomely recently for senior Madi Zachery as she has signed to play college golf at Georgetown College.

    Zachery actually had a longer softball career with the Lady Eagles, playing that sport in the spring with the green and gold for seven seasons including the last three on the varsity.

  • Young wildlife best left...

     FRANKFORT – Encounters with young wildlife increase in spring as people spend more time outdoors.

    An unattended deer fawn curled up in tall grass. A litter of rabbits discovered alone in the backyard. A baby bird furiously flapping its wings but struggling to get off the ground.

  • Carnell’s football skills taking...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – One of the most decorated players in Bullitt County football history, Bullitt Central senior Trevor Carnell, will be playing football at Centre College starting in the fall.

    Carnell has known for quite some time that his football career would continue at the small school in Danville. Centre offered the two things that Carnell was looking desired in a college.

  • Eagles soar 6-4 after stumbling...

     LEXINGTON -- It may have been North Bullitt’s best game of the year.

    Forget about the three errors in the first inning.

    Forget about having to come from behind twice.

    Forget about the June 1 temperatures that hovered in the 50s.

    Monday’s 6-4 victory over the Hopkinsville Tigers in the first round of the Rawlings KHSAA State Baseball Tournament in Lexington may have indeed been North Bullitt’s best of the season.

  • Highlands next for Eagles

      LEXINGTON – For the second straight season, North Bullitt’s quarter-final round opponent at the state baseball tournament will be from the Ninth Region.

    That was decided on Tuesday morning when Highlands stunned the state’s top-ranked team, McCracken County, by a 5-2 score.

    North Bullitt will now face Highlands at 6 p.m. on Wednesday at Whitaker Bank Ball Park in Lexington.

  • Third-inning propels Eagles in...

    LOUISVILLE -- For the second night in a row, North Bullitt combined excellent pitching with a big third inning to continue its quest to a Sixth Region title.
        And the 3-1 victory Wednesday over Jeffersontown propelled the Eagles to a second straight regional final.
        The Eagles face DeSales at 6 p.m. on Friday at St. Xavier High School. The winner advances to the state tourney in Lexington on Monday.

  • Henson, efficient offense lifts...

    LOUISVILLE -- There were some similarities Tuesday night when the North Bullitt Eagles took the field against Butler.
        While it wasn't the Sixth Region baseball championship, it was just as important.
        In an elimination game, North Bullitt scratched just one hit but capitalized on some Butler mistakes to win the regional opener 4-0.

  • East falters down the stretch in...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE-- An all too familiar finish jumped up and bit the Bullitt East Chargers again and it couldn't have come at a worse time.
        Battling DeSales in the opening round of the Sixth Region Baseball Tournament, coach Jeff Bowles' team could not close the door on the Colts, giving up three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to lose 4-3.
        It was a refrain that the Chargers could not get out of their heads this season.

  • Lady Chargers fail to find...

    LOUISVILLE-- There is never a good time to play a bad game and that goes double for the post-season.
        That lesson came home for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers on Wednesday as the red and gold left their 'A' game in Mount Washington during a 6-1 loss to Holy Cross in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Softball Tournament at the University of Louisville's Ulmer Stadium.
