  • Lady Eagles blast Bulldogs

        HEBRON ESTATES - With the pitching distance moved back three-feet this season, North Bullitt softball coach Eric Lambert said that his team had spent more time in the pre-season working on hitting, anticipating higher scoring games this spring.

        The move paid off handsomely last week as the Lady Eagles won two more games to move to 3-1 this season. On Tuesday, the green and gold blasted Moore 16-0 and then beat Male 12-4 on Thursday.

  • Second week more encouraging for...

        HEBRON ESTATES - What a difference a week, and a little confidence, can make on the baseball diamond.

        After struggling in its first week of the season, the North Bullitt Eagles came back with a 3-1 second week. And the loss was a 5-1 setback to Eastern, the third-ranked team in the state.

        “We have gotten better,” said head coach Brian Wise. “I’ve seen improvement.”

  • Super Thursday - BE at BC

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Spring sports fans can get a rare treat on Thursday when Bullitt East visits Bullitt Central not for just one game, but two games in two different sports - and right next to each other.

        The only regular season meeting between the the two 24th District rivals in both baseball and softball will take place at 5 p.m. on Thursday on the new fields at Bullitt Central located behind the Bullitt County Vocational Center.

  • Chargers, Lady Chargers open the...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt East got off to a quick start for the 2010 tennis season with wins in both boys’ and girls’ play last week, the first week of the regular season.

        On the boys’ side, coach Dustin Armstrong’s squad picked up a pair of easy wins. On Tuesday, the red and gold turned back North Bullitt 4-1 and then later in the week rolled past Holy Cross 5-0.

        The Lady Chargers opened the season on day one when they slipped past Bullitt Central 3-2 in Shepherdsville.

  • Lady Eagles did a lot of learning

        HEBRON ESTATES - Some basketball teams can win 20 games in a season and end up being disappointed at the end.

        Other teams can post win totals that require just one digit and end the season feeling like they accomplished something.

        Put the North Bullitt Lady Eagles in the second group.

  • Chargers, Eagles split early...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - There is still a long-way to go in the 2010 track season, but North Bullitt and Bullitt East met for the first time outdoors on Tuesday of last week with the two rivals splitting the boys’ and girls’ titles.

        This was an All-Comers Meet that also included Whitefield Academy. Bullitt Central was scheduled to compete, but had to cancel at the last minute.

  • BE & BC share softball event

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt East and Bullitt Central will share a softball tournament this weekend when the High Five Bullitt County Softball invitational Tournament takes place at both schools.

  • Cougars rally in 8th to beat...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - A comeback from a 4-1 deficit midway through the fifth inning highlighted a second straight 1-1 week for the Bullitt Central baseball team to open the season.

        The big rally saw the Cougars move ahead of Waggener 6-4 only to have the game go into extra innings. Bullitt Central then run with a run in the bottom of the eighth. That win capped a week that also included a 12-8 loss at home to Bethlehem.

  • Lady Chargers run out of gas in...

    LOUISVILLE - One of the first things that Ricky Hoffman noted when he got the job as the Bullitt East softball coach in February was that the team did not have a spring break tournament on the schedule.

    Some quick calls and emails landed the team in the Southern Softball Bash at Southern High School. While the event turned out to have a few scheduling mishaps, the total tourney ended up being a positive for the Lady Chargers as they posted a 4-1 record, losing in the championship game to a team from Tennessee.

  • Wrestlemania: Zoneton's...

    ZONETON - Kyle Hoskins grew up as a wrestling fan. His current favorite is former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) champion John Cena.

    Thanks to a school librarian and a few books, Hoskins met Cena in person at WrestleMania XXV.

    He now hopes to repeat the moment again during an all-expenses-paid trip to Phoenix for WrestleMania XXVI.

    The Zoneton Middle School eighth grader earned a second Southeast Regional win in The WrestleMania Reading Challenge presented by the Young Adult Library Services Association.
