  • BC falls in final of Valley...

        LOUISVILLE - A four game winning streak for the Bullitt Central Cougars came to a frustrating end in the final of the Valley Invitational.

        Battling Waggener in the championship game of the eight-team event, a team they had beaten in eight innings six days earlier, the Cougars had a couple of defensive lapses that allowed innings to continue that led to an 11-6 loss.

  • It was a long week for Bullitt...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Both of Bullitt East’s top-flight discus throwers went long in the past week with some impressive performances for the first half of the season.

        On Tuesday, defending Class AA State Champion Jackie Stevens reached one of her major goals for the season when she uncorked a throw of 119-02 in an All-Comers Meet at Fern Creek High School. That mark surpassed the school record of 118-06 set by Andy Anthony 25-years ago when she won the state discus title.

  • Neat, Lee, Hagan, and Glazer...

    BARDSTOWN - Bluegrass Speedway officially began its 16th season of dirt track racing on Saturday evening and 2010 Season Opener feature event winners would include Dustin Neat of Dunnville, KY in 44 Auto Mart Super Late Models, Benji Lee of Loretto, KY in UMP Modifieds, Pat Hagan of New Haven, KY in WBRT 1320-AM UMP Sportsman, and Timmy Glazer of Bardstown, KY in UMP Street Stocks.

  • Thacker, Troutman invited to All...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - For Bullitt East basketball standout Kayla Thacker, the news was expected.

        At the same moment, the invitation to participate in the try-outs for the Kentucky All-Stars was a big surprise for fellow senior Jade Troutman.

        Bottom line is that it was good news for both girls.

  • BE explodes offensively

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - After a 2-0 win over Christian Academy to open the week, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers’ offense exploded in three straight wins, tallying 50 runs to close out a perfect 4-0 week.

        The confidence is flowing freely for the Lady Chargers after the first two weeks of the 2010 season. The program won just nine games each of the past two seasons, but now stands at 5-1 early in this campaign.

  • Lady Cougars never found the...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - There was more than one time this winter when Bullitt Central Lady Cougar basketball coach Bryan Bates thought his young team had finally turned the corner and consistent strong play was at hand.

        Within a week of those thoughts, the veteran coach was pretty much back to scratching his head and looking for answers.

        On a team with just one senior, some inconsistency is to be expected. The Lady Cougars lived up to that expectation.

  • BC struggles minus Minyard

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - A twinge in the arm of starting pitcher Seaera Minyard led to a long week for the Bullitt Central Lady Chargers as they dropped three games by lopsided scores.

        While the loss of a player as good as Minyard would hurt any team, playing without her affected other players more than it should have according to Lady Cougar head coach Buddy Gallemore.

  • East's southern swing...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The longest road trip of the season for the Bullitt East Chargers turned into a 3-1 spring break trip that head coach Jeff Bowles solved a few lingering ills for the red and gold.

        “We went 3-1 and it was a successful trip,” the coach said of his team’s annual trip to the ESPN Wide World of Sports facility at Walt Disney World. “The kids had a good time. The varsity won and the junior-varsity went 4-0. We got to practice a lot and played a lot of innings. It was a good trip.”

  • Seago's no-hitter...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - A no-hitter by senior Dylan Seago on Friday highlighted an encouraging opening week to the 2010 season for the Bullitt Central baseball squad.

        Seago’s feat, the first for the program in at least four years, came in a 12-0 victory on the road at Spencer County. It was also the first victory for Bullitt Central over their former district rivals since Tommy Alvey became the Cougars’ head coach four years ago.

  • Chargers still looking for...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The combination of a tough schedule and some holes still looking to be plugged continued to haunt Bullitt East during the second week of the regular season.

        Still, the Chargers ended the season on a winning note as they turned back Henderson County, the state’s 12th-ranked team, 10-7 on Thursday. That salvaged a week that started with an 11-1 loss to Eastern, one of the top-five teams in the state and then a 5-3 loss to defending Eighth Region champion Anderson County on Tuesday.
