  • NASCAR racer visits Hebron

     NASCAR truck series driver Ben Rhodes made a visit recently to talk with members of the Discovery School at Hebron Middle.

    Rhodes spoke to the students about his adventures in trying to become a regular on the NASCAR main circuit.

    He graduated from Holy Cross High School while also competing on the NASCAR circuit.

  • Three things to consider for...

     FRANKFORT – The weather forecast calls for a redbud winter to hit this week. This old saying refers to cold snaps that occur in early April when the redbud trees bloom.

    The up and down nature of spring weather can cause consternation among anglers when planning fishing trips. Concerns about the weather is one of three things to consider when planning fishing trips this spring.

    1.    Barometric pressure is key to unlocking fish behavior in spring:

  • Holt throws 1-hitter in second...

     FAIRDALE — Fairdale was looking to pick up a game.

    North Bullitt had been rained out twice and needed a game.

    And the two schools are only five miles apart.

    So, lets play ball.

    In its only game before heading to Myrtle Beach for its annual Cal Ripken Experience, the North Bullitt Eagles hooked up with Fairdale.

    For a second straight game, Brendan Holt supplied his team with a one-hit performance en route to a 6-1 North Bullitt victory.

  • The real diamond seasons start...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore remembers it well.

    A year ago he had a relatively strong baseball team. True, the Cougars might have been a step or two behind two-time defending Sixth Region champion North Bullitt at the time, but they were most certainly on the same level as the other two district rivals – Moore and Southern.

  • North falls late to Crimsons 6-4

     HEBRON ESTATES – After struggling at the start of the season, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles seem to be slowly putting the pieces together

    First, after dropping the first six games of the season during which they averaged just a little over one run a game, the green and gold picked up a 15-4 victory on a trip over the river to take on Providence High School (In.).

    Then last week, in the only game the team had scheduled, North Bullitt stayed close with a strong Manual squad before giving up two runs in the top of the seventh inning and losing 6-4.

  • Cougars get two early, then hold...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Over the past 15 years, the Bullitt Central Cougars have a dismal record against Bullitt East when it comes to baseball.

    However, on Thursday, Cougar junior Harrison Ijames put a 16-game losing streak in the rear view mirror as Bullitt Central recorded a 2-0 victory in the only regular season meeting between the two rivals this season.

    Since 2008, a span of nine games, Bullitt Central had not scored more than a single run in any of the losses to the Chargers.

  • Tennis programs gliding into...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Action already neared the mid-way point for the tennis teams in Bullitt County.

    Unfortunately, the week got off to a wet start as a match between North Bullitt and Bullitt Central was rained out on Monday.

    In a cross-county match, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars turned back Bullitt East 4-1 on Wednesday.

    In a battle of state tournament performers from last spring, Bullitt East’s Savannah Kruse got the best of her battle against Rebecca Price. Kruse scored an 8-4 victory.

  • FINALLY!!: All-Comers Track Meet...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON - After four years without a single home meet, Bullitt County track athletes got to compete on home soil on Tuesday as Bullitt East hosted an All-Comers Meet that included all three local programs as well as Moore and Fern Creek.

    Bullitt East will also host meets at home on April 19 (eight teams) as well as the All-Bullitt County Championships on May 8.

  • Local softball teams struggling...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The first two-plus weeks of the high school softball season have been a struggle for the three Bullitt County programs and that includes Bullitt East, a team that started the season ranked ninth in the coaches’ pre-season poll.

    The Lady Chargers return starting pitcher Taylor Roby and while the junior has been strong, she had gotten little help at the plate and even less help from her defense as the Lady Chargers stand just 3-4 with two games this week before the team heads to Florida for spring break.

  • East baseball stays hot; wins...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Nobody expected the Bullitt East Chargers’ baseball team to go undefeated this season and that includes head coach Jeff Bowles.

    Still, after six straight wins to open the season, you do start to dream of winning every game. But that is just not the way it normally works in baseball.

    The dream ended on Friday when the Chargers suffered a 9-8 defeat at the hands of visiting Ballard. The loss came a day after the red and gold had beaten DeSales by the same 9-8 score.
