  • 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.

        BARDSTOWN - Bluegrass Speedway track promoters David and Anita Ferrell will again present racing action at the ½ mile, high-banked Nelson County clay oval on Saturday August 14 as the track presents a full program of weekly racing series in all four weekly divisions.                

     

  • Local archers get chance to...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Hundreds of schools from every corner of the United States gathered in Louisville for the National Archery in the Schools Program Nationals competition at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center and six of those schools were from Bullitt County.

    Bullitt Lick, Eastside, Mount Washington, and Bernheim Middle Schools,

    Bullitt East High School and St. Aloysius Gonzaga Academy all competed in the NASP Nationals, and all were ranked.

  • Wow! What a summer surge of...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Wall-to-wall baseball and softball.

        Nobody ever said the Sports Editor had a tough job. For two weeks each summer it is pretty much youth baseball and softball, sometimes seemingly from sun up to sun down and later. That is not really a bad thing.

  • Local contingent shines in East/...

    LOUISVILLE - Offense was the name of the game on Saturday during The Kentucky High School Coaches Association East/West Junior All-Stars Basketball Games at Bellarmine University’s Knights Hall.

    In the boys’ game, the West team that included Bullitt East seniors-to-be Hayden Sweat and Corey Washburn exploded for 36 points in the third quarter en route to a 110-102 victory. Bullitt East head coach Troy Barr coached the West squad.

  • Blue Lick 15s advance with...

        OKOLONA - This wasn’t a group of high school players who were on the same team or an AAU squad which had played together for years.

        Instead, it was a team of players who attended different high schools and played for various rec ball teams at Blue Lick.

        When coach David Hayes got the team assembled four weeks ago, he really wasn’t sure how well the Blue Lick 15-year-old All-Star team would do.

        But he never allowed any doubt to be expressed.

  • Under-12 state tourney ends...

    LOUISVILLE - The Under-12 Cal Ripken West Kentucky State Tournament had a pair of Bullitt County teams competing last week at the Germantown Recreation Complex in Louisville.

    Unfortunately, the event did not end the way either the Mount Washington or Blue Lick All-Stars had envisioned.

    After opening with a pair of wins to start the tournament and reaching the winner’s bracket final, Mount Washington struck out in two straight games over the weekend, losing to Barren County and then Jeffersontown to finish third in the 8-team event.

  • Improved U-11 All-Stars fall in...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - A week after going 0-2 in the combined District 10/11 Tournament on their home field, the Under-11 Mount Washington All-Stars made a remarkable recovery last week in the West Kentucky State Tournament that the league hosted.

    Mount Washington won two early games to reach the winner’s bracket championship game of the 7-team event. At that point they met an old rival, Jeffersontown, the team that had won the District Tournament a week earlier. This time, Jeffersontown won again, 14-3.
