  • Jones excelled for BE batting in...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – For Bullitt East senior baseball player Zach Jones, being one of four players from the Charger program to be heading to Spalding University in the fall was not any type of master plan.

    In fact, Jones says that if he was the only player making that transition that it would have been just fine also. He would have decided on the Golden Eagles as a solo signee.

  • Riordan ready to continue...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior Jared Riordan might not have the prototypical size for a catcher, but what he lacks in size he more than makes up for in desire as well as experience.

    That made it a no-brainer for the Spalding baseball coaches to take notice of Riordan right off the bat. The Golden Eagles were not looking for high school catchers to turn into position players. They wanted a full-time catcher and Riordan fit the bill.

  • A few news and notes as we head...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – As hard as it might be for some of us to believe, tomorrow will be the first day of August.

    That means that the high school sports season is pretty much already on top of us. All fall sports teams were allowed to start conditioning/practice on July 15, although, with that date falling on a Saturday, some did not start until the 17th.

  • Reece could be part of an All-BE...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – When it comes time for that big college destination decision, one key aspect always comes down to location.

    Some high school seniors want to be a little further from home while some others would prefer to stay in the area. That might even be more important for an athlete, as being close to home can mean family being able to continue following the exploits on the field.

  • Langley knew early that he...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Unlike a lot of high school seniors, Bullitt East’s Mitchell Langley knew where he was going to college way back last fall.

    In fact, Langley recalls the exact day that he contacted Spalding University head coach Matt Downs and committed.

    “It was back on Oct. 8,” the outfielder recalled. “I never wavered from that.”

  • Summer fun at Bullitt East...

     Coming off the high school ‘dead period’ recently, Bullitt East hosted its annual summer soccer camp.

    This year, the four-day event was under the direction of girls’ soccer coach Steve Gentry who took the reins from boys’ head coach Mike Brangers.

    Gentry and his Lady Charger players had over 50 elementary and middle school age players despite some warm temperatures.

  • Blue Lick wins third straight...

     OKOLONA -- Brian Shirley has coached baseball for over 20 years, so you shouldn’t expect there to be any nerves as he guides the Blue Lick 18U team in the state tournament.

    But, after serving as an assistant coach on the squad’s back-to-back state titles, Shirley admitted to being just a little nervous.

    With the exception of one inning, there was no reason for nerves as Blue Lick swept through all four games to claim its third straight state title.

  • Football schedules see more...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – In the past, the area high school football programs haven’t done a lot of schedule changing in the middle of the four-year KHSAA alignment cycle.

    But this time all three went out and made some pretty drastic changes to their schedules. Part of it might be due to the fact that all three schools have different coaches than they had when the schedule for the previous two-year rotation started.

  • Cooper Farms Dolphins swim for...

     HILLVIEW – It’s not the longest season on the books, but the Cooper Farms Dolphins pack a lot of fun into a short season.

    In just six weeks, the long-time program will compete in five swim meets as well as the championship meet of the Louisville Summer Fun League while also conducting about 20 practice sessions at the pool in the Cooper Farms Community located just north of the Bullitt/Jefferson County line off Mount Washington Road.
