  • Run in eighth rallies North past...

        HEBRON ESTATES - In a game with enough excitement for a whole week, the North Bullitt overcame an early 5-0 hole and rallied to beat Bullitt Central 6-5 in eight innings in the first district game in the 24th District this season.

        The Lady Eagles, who were playing for the first time in almost two weeks, scored three times in the fifth inning and then tied the game with two runs in the seventh including the tying run on a controversial play that forced the extra innings.

  • Eagles beat the Bulldogs in 10...

        FAIRDALE - In the final two innings, North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise had retreated to the dugout bench to holler instructions to his players. His nerves wouldn’t let him watch from the dugout’s edge.

        The district opener Tuesday against host Fairdale had been a roller-coaster game...the type the veteran coach had grown accustomed to this season.

        In the end, it was a time to celebrate for Wise’s young Eagles as North Bullitt pulled out a 7-6 10-inning victory over the Bulldogs.

  • Bluegrass Speedway Set for World...

        BARDSTOWN - There will be no racing on Saturday May 1 as Bluegrass Speedway track promoters David and Anita Ferrell will take this weekend off to ready things for the first-ever visit by the World of Outlaws Late Model Series to Bluegrass Speedway on Saturday May 8 for the 8th Annual My Old Kentucky Home Shootout event.

     

  • Early offense more than enough...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The first intra-county game on their new field will not be something Bullitt Central baseball fans will want to remember.

        There was no joy for the Cougars on Thursday as they were down 10-0 before they ever came to the plate. By the time the game ended mercifully after five innings, Bullitt East had a dominating 17-1 victory.

        Bullitt Central has not beaten Bullitt East since 2004.

  • Lady Cougars gain steam; rain...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - A rematch between Bullitt Central and Bullitt East was in the works Saturday afternoon before Mother Nature stepped in and halted play in the High Five Bullitt County Softball Bash.

    The meeting would have come in the semi-finals of the championship bracket. Bullitt Central had won it’s own division with a 3-0 mark while the Lady Chargers had finished second with a 2-1 record in the opposite pool.

  • Eagles see some 'nice...

        FORT WALTON - Each week, a coach is looking for signs of improvement with the final focus on post-season play.

        While enjoying the sun of the beaches of Florida, North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise was also looking for some rays of sunshine in his young baseball team. At the conclusion of the 2-4 spring break trip, Wise felt a little better about his squad.

        Now, it is time to return to the important district battles, where the Eagles opened on Tuesday against Fairdale.

  • Chargers continue on top of...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - With a strong combination of a transfer student, some foreign exchange players and an already impressive core group of players, Bullitt East boys’ tennis coach Dustin Armstrong has high hopes for the 2010 season.

  • Season that ended too early was...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Only one girls’ basketball team in Kentucky felt that the 2009-10 season ended on a positive note. Unfortunately, that team was not the Bullitt East Lady Chargers despite an impressive 27-4 record.

        Still, given a little time to assess the complete package following the 48-43 loss to Butler in the championship game of the Sixth Region Tournament, veteran Bullitt East head coach Chris Stallings could grasp the success that the program had this past season.

  • 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.
