  • 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.

  • Neat, Lee, Hagan, and Glazer...

    BARDSTOWN - Bluegrass Speedway officially began its 16th season of dirt track racing on Saturday evening and 2010 Season Opener feature event winners would include Dustin Neat of Dunnville, KY in 44 Auto Mart Super Late Models, Benji Lee of Loretto, KY in UMP Modifieds, Pat Hagan of New Haven, KY in WBRT 1320-AM UMP Sportsman, and Timmy Glazer of Bardstown, KY in UMP Street Stocks.

  • Thacker, Troutman invited to All...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - For Bullitt East basketball standout Kayla Thacker, the news was expected.

        At the same moment, the invitation to participate in the try-outs for the Kentucky All-Stars was a big surprise for fellow senior Jade Troutman.

        Bottom line is that it was good news for both girls.

  • BE explodes offensively

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - After a 2-0 win over Christian Academy to open the week, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers’ offense exploded in three straight wins, tallying 50 runs to close out a perfect 4-0 week.

        The confidence is flowing freely for the Lady Chargers after the first two weeks of the 2010 season. The program won just nine games each of the past two seasons, but now stands at 5-1 early in this campaign.

  • Lady Cougars never found the...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - There was more than one time this winter when Bullitt Central Lady Cougar basketball coach Bryan Bates thought his young team had finally turned the corner and consistent strong play was at hand.

        Within a week of those thoughts, the veteran coach was pretty much back to scratching his head and looking for answers.

        On a team with just one senior, some inconsistency is to be expected. The Lady Cougars lived up to that expectation.

  • BC struggles minus Minyard

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - A twinge in the arm of starting pitcher Seaera Minyard led to a long week for the Bullitt Central Lady Chargers as they dropped three games by lopsided scores.

        While the loss of a player as good as Minyard would hurt any team, playing without her affected other players more than it should have according to Lady Cougar head coach Buddy Gallemore.
