  • BE duo helps Kentucky split with...

        LOUISVILLE - A big turnaround in just 24-hours isn’t the normal in high school basketball circles, but the Kentucky All-Stars performed the slight of hand to perfection last week, reversing an opening loss to Indiana on Friday to beat the best from the north 94-87 in overtime on Saturday in Indianapolis.

        In the first game Friday, at Bellarmine University, the Kentucky All-Stars had an early advantage, but couldn’t hold it, falling 93-83.

  • Lady Eagle Hoops Camp

        There was plenty of fun to be had last week at North Bullitt during the first annual Lady Eagle Basketball Camp.

  • Kentucky side of All-Star series...

        LOUISVILLE - The product on the court was impressive this summer in the annual two game basketball All-Star series between Kentucky and Indiana.

        Unfortunately, not a lot of people in Kentucky, and mainly the Louisville area, seemed to care. In a series that once packed crowds into Freedom Hall, the 2010 game on the south side of the Ohio River had no problem getting the crowd into 3,200-seat Knights’ Hall at Bellarmine University.

  • Hatton is Dandy in 9th Annual...

        BARDSTOWN - The National All Star Racing Association made its first official appearance of 2010 at Bluegrass Speedway on Saturday evening and Aaron Hatton would drive away $3,000 richer after picking up the victory in the 9th Annual June Jam event and it would also be Hatton’s first-ever Bluegrass Speedway feature win.  Other feature event winners for the evening included Shane Lafollette of Hodgenville, KY in UMP Street Stocks and Jason Wheatley of Loretto, KY in UMP Modifieds.

     

  • Topless Terror Night/Mod Squad...

  • North Bullitt starts fast but...

        LOUISVILLE - The magical late-season run of the North Bullitt Eagles came to a close on Tuesday afternoon.

        In Jim Patterson Stadium on the University of Louisville campus, the Eagles fell 9-4 to the Butler Bears in the semifinals of the Sixth Region baseball tournament.

        The loss came 24 hours after North Bullitt pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the season by defeating Pleasure Ridge Park, the state’s second-ranked team, in the regional opener.

  • Chargers easily defeat Central...

        LOUISVILLE - Some baseball victories are spectacular and others more mundane.

        But in the post-season, any victory is to be cherished no matter the intensity level. It is win and move on.

        That was the case Monday night in the final opening round game of the Sixth Region Baseball Tournament at St. Xavier. Bullitt East was supposed to mow down a Central team that had won just six of 28 contests to this point in the season.

  • Return to regional scene ends...

    LOUISVILLE - Seniors Jenna Simms and Erin Manns never expected to be standing in Ulmer Stadium playing for the right to advance to the state softball tournament.

    After struggling through a trio of sub-par seasons, Bullitt East came within two innings of making one of the most improbable tournament runs in the state of Kentucky.

    Despite the 5-4 loss on Thursday to Pleasure Ridge Park, first-year coach Ricky Hoffman was full of smiles.
