  • Success continues for U-12 group

        HIGHVIEW - It took just 20 hours for the Under-12 Mount Washington All-Stars to start what they hope is a long journey this summer in Cal Ripken Tournament action.

        The flagship group of kids for the league in recent years, this was the fourth summer age group district title in five seasons for this core group of players and coaches.

  • Blue Lick U-12 All-Stars win...

    FAIRDALE - Many of the members of the Blue Lick 12-year-old All-Star hadn’t participated in post-season play for a couple of years.

    As 11 year olds, vacations and commitments to football didn’t allow enough players to be available to field an all-star team.

    This year, the Blue Lick All-Stars made up for last year’s disappointment in a big way. The squad is heading to the West Kentucky state tournament this week at Germantown as district champs.

    Blue Lick swept through the district tournament with three straight victories.

  • Blue Lick 10s fall short against...

    HILLVIEW - The Blue Lick 10-year-old All-Stars ran into a pretty impressive foe in the championship of the district baseball tournament.

    There was good reason the Prairie Village team won the state title the year before and they showed it again on Saturday.

    But prior to losing in the championship game, Blue Lick pulled out a victory over Okolona to win the loser’s bracket title.

    In fact, the 10-4 victory on Saturday over Okolona avenged a first-round loss to their Preston Highway neighbors to the north.

  • Parks proposal: Let YMCA manage...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - After studying the situation for several months, the Bullitt County Parks Board is ready to make a recommendation on the future of the sports programs.

        But, before that final recommendation is made, the board is looking for input from the community.

        A special meeting of the Bullitt County Parks Board will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 15, in the fiscal courtroom of the courthouse.

        The public is encouraged to make its opinions known.

  • Mt. Washington hosts U8 &...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Softball was certainly the name of the game two weekends ago as the Mount Washington Youth Baseball and Softball League hosted the 2010 East Kentucky State Softball Tournaments.

        It turned out to be a heartbreaking ending for the Under-8 Mount Washington All-Stars as they finished third in the 11-team event.

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - For the first time in a number of years, baseball All-Star teams from Blue Lick and Mt. Washington could meet this week in state tournament play.

  • Charger Invitational Wednesday...

  • Blue Lick's U-12 has early...

    OKOLONA - The offensive bats were in full motion despite an 8 a.m. start time on Saturday for the Blue Lick Under 12 softball All-Stars.

    The Blue Lick team went 1-2 in the state softball tournament. The 19-1 victory on Saturday came after the team lost 23-5 to Prairie Village and then 10-3 to Barren County.

    Against Hart County, Blue Lick plated 11 runs in the first inning to decide the contest.

  • Blue Lick 13 earns another trip...

        HILLVIEW - After a tough 6-3 setback to Okolona in the opening round of the 13-year-old District tournament, Blue Lick skipper Tommy Parker challenged his players to stay confident.

        In fact, he said the team was right where he wanted it.

        Through a bizarre situation, Blue Lick turned out to be in the right spot at the right time and, in fact, did come back to win consecutive games on Thursday to capture the district title and advance to the state tournament this week in Henderson.
