  • Charger track team got a jump on...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The high school track season got off the ground over the past few weeks, but it won’t really kick into high gear until the students return to school following spring break this week.

         There really is no rush to get up to speed as the high school track season has been extended this year with the Kentucky State Championships being moved all the way back to Memorial Day weekend on May 24 (for Class 3-A). That meet will be at the University of Kentucky.

  • Football realignment took a few...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Just when local administrators and coaches thought they had a handle on football realignment for the 2015 to 2018 football seasons, they were all thrown a curveball last week.

         It was six weeks ago that the Kentucky High School Athletic Association announced the enrollment figures that would be used for the realignment procedure. At that point, schools in the state were given a month to decide if the wanted to ‘play-up’.

  • Fishing tourney will once again...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON--Grab your bait and rod and come on down to the annual fishing tournament.

    The Mount Washington FOP Lodge #82 will once again be sponsoring Fishing for Kosair Kids crappie tournament April 26 at Taylorsville Lake State Park.  Registration will be from 5 to 6:30 a.m. at Settler’s Trace. Cost is $50 per boat.

  • Breeden wins opening junior golf...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – While golf might still be a distant dream for some with the weather in Kentuckiana the way it has been in recent weeks, the game went on for a number of local players over the past weekend in the Musselman-Dunne Golf Tour/KIA Match-Play Championships at Seneca Golf Course in Louisville.

    This was the first event of the MDGT season. The MDGT will continue with events up through the end of July at which time the players will shift their focus to their high school (or college) golf teams. 

  • East’s Patton hurls no-hitter in...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After the opening days of the high school baseball season, Bullitt East head coach Jeff Bowles wasn’t exactly pleased with the way things were going.

    That all changed on Friday when Charger senior pitcher Chase Patton threw a no-hitter against traditional power Elizabethtown. That brightened the outlook for the veteran coach as his team got a 3-0 victory.

    That win lifted the Chargers to 4-2 for the season heading into the last week at home before the team heads out over the weekend for Florida and spring break baseball.

  • Central’s hitting still on the...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With the bad weather this winter, Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore was worried his team’s hitting would trail the pitching, at least early in the season.

    The worries turned out to be well founded as the Cougars struggled to make contact over the first 10 days of the season. The lack of offense led to a 1-4 start to the season.

  • Eagles start the baseball season...

     HEBRON ESTATES - Forget the snow. Ignore the cool breeze. It’s time for baseball.

    The North Bullitt Eagles took the field on Tuesday in the first game of the season.

    After the opening win, the Eagles would finish the first week with a 1-2 record. But head coach Brian Wise is still very encouraged with his squad.

    In the opener, junior Jacob Kelly got all the support he would need in the first inning as the Eagles defeated Seneca 11-2.

  • Lady Chargers turn errors into...

     HEBRON ESTATES – After winning 32 games a year ago and with seven returning starters, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers were expected to be a powerhouse this spring.

    On Friday, the softball team at North Bullitt couldn’t argue that point after Bullitt East rolled to a 9-2 victory in the only meeting this spring between the two rivals. The Lady Chargers scored twice in the top of the first inning and never looked back in rolling to the program’s sixth straight win to open the season.

  • Raymer twins set to play at St....

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The idea at first was not for twins Morgan and Kayla Raymer to attend the same college and play on the same softball team.

         It just worked out that way.

         That is did recently when the pair both declared that they would play softball starting in the fall of 2014 at Saint Mary’s College in South Bend, Indiana. The Belles are a Division III school that is associated with Notre Dame University. It is an all-female school.
