  • Blue Lick U-9 All-Stars get good...

     It was a short stay for the Blue Lick U-9 All-Stars in district play as the team lost two games right off the bat and were eliminated.

    This age group is in its first season of competing with player pitching which is a big adjustment from years of machine-pitch competition.

    Blue Lick was hosting the tournament.

    Members of the team included Nolan Amburgey, Brandon Arroyo, Domanic Arvin, Caleb Day, Nolan Dunnavan, Marco Gonzalez, Beau Hornak, Joseph Johnson, Carson Luttreell, Kenden Rice, Jalen Sanders, Bradley VanWinkle and Baren Williams.

  • Rain shortens state week for two...

     LOUISVILLE -- Two local teams got a rude welcome to the West Kentucky Babe Ruth tournament.

    The Blue Lick and Mount Washington 15-year-old All-Star teams each got to play one pool game and one bracket game before being eliminated over the weekend.

    Due to rain throughout the week, the format was changed to a single pool game on Saturday to determine seeds for the single-elimination bracket play, which started on Sunday.

  • Blue Lick U-11 All-Stars find...

     VALLEY STATION - Drawing Prairie Village in the first round is not a pleasant thing when it comes to post-season baseball action.

    And then you have to play them on its home field.

    On Tuesday, the Blue Lick 11-year-old All-Stars ran into a big hitting machine in the opener of the Cal Ripken district tournament.

    Nate Jones did it on the mound and at the plate for Prairie Village.

    Jones threw three shutout innings and stroked a long two-run home run to power a 10-0 five inning victory.

  • MW U-8 All-Stars finish 2-1...

     FERN CREEK – A week after finishing third at the district level, the Mount Washington U-8 All-Star team was back in action last week at the West Kentucky Cal Ripken State Tournament at Fern Creek Park.

    Once again, coach Josh McGoff’s team had to battle both some strong opponents as well as Mother Nature. Both pool play and bracket play in the 26-team event had schedule changes because of all the rain in the area last week.

  • More All-Star action planned for...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A lot of summer All-Star baseball has already been played and is included on this page and there is a lot more still to be played including a number of tournaments this week.

    As of Tuesday, this is what we know about.

  • MW U-10 All-Stars finish third...

    JEFFERSONTOWN-- It was a long week for the Under-10 Mount Washington Baseball All-Stars, but the team claimed a pair of victories before finishing third in the Cal Ripken District 10 and 11 Tournament at Skyview Park in Jeffersontown.
        The team entered District play after finishing second in a pre-tournament event, the Firecracker. After the third place finish in the District Tournament, Mount Washington earned a spot in the Metro State Tournament which will start on Tuesday and will also be played at Skyview Park.

  • Western Kentucky signs pair of...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE--When Western Kentucky University needed some big, strong 'bases' for their cheerleading program, they knew exactly where to look-- Bullitt Central.
        At the end of the school year, the Hilltopper's cheerleading coaches got a lot stronger as they signed Cougar seniors Sterling Rayhill and David Greenwell to join their program starting in the fall.

  • MW U-9 All-Stars gain much...

    HIKES POINT Ð The Cal Ripken District 10 and 11 Tournament for the Mount Washington Under-9 All-Stars was a good learning experience for the team despite two quick losses in the tournament hosted by the Hikes Point Optimist League.
        Playing for head coach Tommy Brooks, this was the first summer All-Star play for the young players after competing with Machine-Pitch for the three previous summers.

  • After watching the World Cup,...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With soccer again in the American conscience, at least for the short term, after the U.S. Women’s National Team won its third World Cup title over the weekend, perhaps some additional Bullitt Countians will be interested in watching a high school match this fall.

    I will say that soccer was the sport that the Sports Editor played in his teen years. This was well before the high schools in Bullitt County offered the sport. We were a real ‘club team’ of Bullitt Central students. We coached ourselves and scheduled our own matches.

  • Rain can’t dampen Bullitt Blast...

     A little rain couldn’t dampen the fun for a large group of runners who took part in the Bullitt Blast Run/Dash on Saturday.

    A number of the runners were decked out in red, white and blue holiday garb for the 5K run and walk.

    The event was sponsored and conducted by the Bullitt County YMCA. This was the second year for the event.

    The race started in front of the Bullitt County YMCA and ran through the streets of Shepherdsville.
