  • BE's Johnson signs to play...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The five seniors on the Bullitt East girls’ basketball team this season had been teammates since they were sixth-graders at Mount Washington Middle School.

        Now they are splitting apart for the next stage of their lives.

        The most recent to set her future was Samantha Johnson who on Thursday signed to play college basketball at Lindsey Wilson University.

  • NB, BE track head to loaded...

    HEBRON ESTATES - One of the strongest contingents of local track athletes ever will start their journey to the Kentucky State Track and Field Championships on Wednesday as North Bullitt and Bullitt East head to North Oldham High School for the Class AA, Region III Championships.

    This will be the first time that a regional meet has been held at North Oldham which is located in Goshen. The facility is brand new for this season.

  • Chargers make it look easy...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers seem to be getting hot at the right time of the year and that is bad news for the other teams in the 24th District.

        After already beating both North Bullitt and Bullitt Central by double-digit margins, the red and gold were expected to get a game last week from Southern in the game that would decide the number one seed for the post-season tournament the week of May 24 at Bullitt Central.

  • North gets big win over ranked...

        HEBRON ESTATES - Coach Brian Wise had seen his North Bullitt Eagles play some very good teams during the season. Some of the outcomes were very close.

        But, the coach in his fourth year as skipper of the Eagles was looking for that signature victory.

        On Thursday, it happened.

  • Late season hitting slump...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - A late season batting funk led to a pair of losses last week for the Bullitt Central Cougars.

        During one four game stretch early in the season the Cougars had at least 11 hits in each game. Last week the team had ten hits in losses to Seneca and Oldham County.

        That action left coach Tommy Alvey’s team with an 8-14 mark heading into the last week of the regular season.

  • Knight earns top regional tennis...

    FRANKFORT - When the Eighth Region Tennis Tournaments get underway this week at Western Hills and Franklin County High Schools, Bullitt East will be well represented with four seeded entries in the girls’ and boys’ events.

    Leading the way will be Lady Charger junior Makaela Knight who earned the number one seed on the girls’ side after going undefeated during the regular season. She capped off the season last week with a win over Katie Howard of Western Hills High School who got the number two seed.

  • Central posts 4-1 week; East...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - On a team with no seniors and just a handful of juniors, Bullitt Central softball coach Buddy Gallemore expected his team to get better as the season progressed.

        That seems to be just the scenario as the Lady Cougars posted a second straight winning week that was capped with a fifth-place finish in the Gaslight Festival Tournament at Jeffersontown High School over the weekend.

  • Eagles hang on to beat Southern...

        HEBRON ESTATES - The game really had little bearing on the post-season for either team, but don’t tell that to the players from North Bullitt or Southern.

        More than any other sport between the two neighbors, the baseball players always look at this as one of the biggest games of the season. That is because of the lifetime of rivalries the players have developed growing up in the Blue Lick and Okolona Youth League programs.

  • Lady Eagles win track title at...

        LOUISVILLE - North Bullitt’s rapidly improving track teams posted their best showings so far this spring recently in the Holy Cross Invitational.

        The Lady Eagles won the team title amongst nine teams as they scored 170 points. That was well ahead of the host school with 122 points and Pleasure Ridge Park with 114.

        There were eight teams in the boys’ meet with the Eagles finishing second with 106 points. Holy Cross won the meet with 167 points.

  • Cougars start hot, Eagles rise...

        HEBRON ESTATES - It didn’t start exactly the way North Bullitt fans would have wanted.

        But it was a great way to begin a district game against a county rival for fans of the Bullitt Central Cougars.

        The visiting Cougars came out of the cages hungry and aggressive on Tuesday. But in the end, it was the North Bullitt Eagles who came away with the 5-4 victory and the guarantee of not having to play a first-round district baseball game in two weeks.
