  • All-Star play set to continue...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - At least two area diamond teams will continue summer play with action this week.

        The Under-15 Blue Lick All-Stars will head to Glasgow for the West Kentucky State Tournament for that age group. The format for the 12-team tourney is pool play with the top eight teams advancing to a single-elimination tournament.

  • Carrier, Jr., wins Kentuckiana...

        BARDSTOWN - The National All Star Racing Association visited Bluegrass Speedway on Saturday evening and Eddie Carrier, Jr. of Salt Rock, WV would take $5,000 back to the Mountaineer State by capturing the win in the 12th Annual Kentuckiana Klash event.  Other feature event winners for the evening included Barry Chesser of Bloomfield, KY in WBRT 1320-AM UMP Sportsman and Jason Wheatley of Loretto, KY would win his fourth straight UMP Modified main event.

     

  • Charger Baseball Camp

        Over 100 young players recently took part in the Bullitt East Charger Baseball Camp under the direction of coaches Jeff Bowles and Craig Sharpe.

        The event was held at the Mount Washington Youth Baseball and Softball League facility located at Mount Washington Elementary school.

        There was a lot of work on fundamentals with hitting and fielding and throwing.

  • Bluegrass Speedway AMS Bluegrass...

        BARDSTOWN - Bluegrass Speedway track promoters David and Anita Ferrell will return with racing action to the ½ mile, high-banked Nelson County clay oval on Saturday July 24 as the American Modified Series presented by Force Fuel and Engine Conditioner visits for the 10th Annual Bluegrass Rumble, paying $3,000 to win for UMP Modifieds.

  • BE's Noe picks kicking...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - There is nothing wrong with a little self-promotion when it comes to the college recruiting game.

    Of that, Bullitt East senior Caleb Noe has plenty.

    That is perhaps most needed in the world of football kickers. Most colleges don’t sign high school seniors for that post. Instead, they look for a player to walk-on and to earn his keep.

    Noe didn’t have a problem with that thinking. This spring he agreed to attend Central Arkansas University, an NCAA Division I program, as a walk-on. He can earn that scholarship in year two.

  • Motor Mania at the 2010 Bullitt...

    If it had a motor you could probably have raced it, pulled it or crashed it at the 2010 Bullitt County Fair.

    It didn’t make any difference if it had two or four wheels.The annual summer spectacular had action every night in the lower arena.

    The action started with figure-8 races on the first night and continued with a GardenTractor Pull, a Truck Pull, the ATV & Motorcycle Dirt Drag to the Demo Derby on Friday.

    The final motor event was on Saturday night with Mud Racing.

  • Hockenbury inks for Spalding

    HEBRON ESTATES - Wearing yellow cleats during the high school season may have paid big dividends for North Bullitt Lady Eagle senior Kaleigh Hockenbury.

    The flashy shoes attracted the attention of Spalding head coach Kevin Cromwell when he came out to watch Hockenbury and her teammates in a game against Male last fall. The coach stayed in contact with the senior and recently Hockenbury signed all the necessary papers to play the sport at Spalding for the next four years.

  • East players in All-Star game

        LOUISVILLE - Bullitt East will be well represented on Saturday night at the Kentucky High School Basketball Coaches’ Association Fifth to Eighth Region Junior All-Star game at Bellarmine University.

        The girls’ game will start at 6 p.m. and will include seniors-to-be Lindey Young and Jessica Philpott competing for the West Squad that has six players from both the Fifth and Sixth Regions taking part.

  • BE's Emberton to continue...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - A later bloomer when it came to soccer, the thought of playing at the next level was not something that Bullitt East defender Alex Emberton grew up envisioning.

        In fact, there was a time during his sophomore season in which Emberton stepped away from the game for a time. That seemed to reenergize his batteries and since that time he has been a mainstay in the Bullitt East program. He was a solid defender for the program this past season, the first time the Chargers had been ranked among the top-25 teams in the state.

  • BC's Griffin to Georgetown

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central basketball coach Joe Pat Lee says that Nathan Griffin knew more about the sport than any other student-athlete in the Cougar program last winter.

    But Griffin didn’t score a single point for the maroon and gray on the court. Instead, he served as what basically was the role of volunteer assistant coach/manager for the Cougars. The service and dedication paid off this spring when Griffin received a financial aide package to become a basketball manager at Georgetown College under long-tome head coach ‘Happy’ Osborne.
