  • Youth football ready to tackle...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League beat the heat last weekend as it kicked off the 2010 season, but league president Joe Downs knows that won’t always be the case.

        With that in mind, the largest independent sports league in the county has developed an alternate schedule in case of extreme heat this season.

  • Football camps at BC and BE

    With the start of youth league football practices already under way, a number of area players added to their football time recently with trips to football camps at Bullitt Central and Bullitt East.

    Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor had 55 players for a week long camp in the mornings with no pads used.

    Bullitt East head coach Doug Preston opted to use the pads for his 35 players in the two-day camp he conducted.

  • Blue Lick wins runner up in 13-...

        HENDERSON - Coming into the state 13-year-old tournament, coach Tommy Parker felt his Blue Lick team was among the top three squads.

        It turned out that Parker was correct as his team finished as the state runner-up for a second consecutive season.

        But it was certainly an exciting run to reach the final game.

        After being shelled by the host team 14-4 on Friday, Blue Lick came back to push Henderson to the limit on Sunday afternoon.

  • Bullitt Lick on way to world...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - When Bullitt Lick Middle School’s archery team was established in November, no one could have expected they would compete in a national tournament six months later.

        After all, most of the team members had never even picked up a bow before joining the squad, much less competed.

        It appeared the odds were stacked against them when they headed for Louisville to compete in the  National Archery in the Schools Program Nationals competition in May.

  • Timberwolf Hoops Camp

        ZONETON - One of the final events of the summer basketball camp circuit took place last week with the Timberwolf Basketball Camp at Zoneton Middle School.

        The camp was under the direction of Zoneton boys’ head coach Casey Bannon who is also a volunteer assistant coach with the North Bullitt Eagles.

        The camp was divided into two sessions with the younger players in the morning before the older players took part in the afternoon session.

  • “The Winfield Warrior...

        BARDSTOWN -  Bluegrass Speedway would present its 12th Annual Bluegrass 50 on Saturday evening and Mike Marlar of Winfield, TN would drive to the checkered flag first to win in the 50 lap, $5,000 event for the 44 Auto Mart Super Late Model division.  Other feature winners for the night included Billy Meredith of Hodgenville, KY in WBRT 1320-AM UMP Sportsman and Benji Lee of Loretto, KY in UMP Modifieds.

  • Under-8 MW All-Stars win West Ky...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Mount Washington Under-8 All-Stars completed a big run through Cal Ripken play recently, winning the West Kentucky State Tournament in Middletown.

        A week earlier, coach Pat Kelley’s team had gone undefeated in winning the District 10 Tournament that the local league hosted. That just continued a successful spring and summer for the core group of players on the team that were part of the East Mount Washington squad that won regular season and post-season tournament titles in a league at Fern Creek.

  • One run means a lot to Blue Lick...

        GLASGOW - Don’t tell the Blue Lick 15 year old All-Stars that a run doesn’t mean anything.

        In the state tournament, eight of the 12 teams would advance out of pool play. The final four would go home.

        And the tiebreaker was the number of runs allowed. Due to two tough outings, Blue Lick had given up 33 runs.

  • Under-10 MW All-Stars second at...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Before the start of the District 10 Cal Ripken Baseball Tournament started two weeks ago, coaches for the Under-10 Mount Washington All-Stars told the team that they had to win that tournament to advance to the West Kentucky State Tournament at Metcalfe County the following week.

    Mission accomplished. The Under-10 All-Stars won three straight games, including a pair of narrow wins over Fern Creek.
