  • Charger baseball plays extra game

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- If the Bullitt East Chargers win tight ball games in the post-season, they can credit it to the experience they gained during the regular.

    Five times this spring the Chargers have gone into extra innings and against strong opposition and three times they have come out on top. Three of those extended games happened last week in consecutive contests as the red and gold went 2-1.

    Those games left coach Jeff Bowles’ team with a 17-8 mark heading into the last two weeks of the regular season.

  • North stays hot...blazing hot......

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Players and coaches may not think about it but the scoreboard operator can play an important role in a baseball game.

    In a week in which North Bullitt routinely swept through three games, something out of the ordinary happened in the 12-1 win over Fern Creek.

    With no outs in the top of the fourth inning Thursday, Blake Benz was on third base and Brady Keehn was on first after a two-RBI single.

  • 5th-ranked Bullitt East beats...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers played just one game last week, but it was one big win for the red and gold as they defeated the state’s fourth-ranked team, Male, by a 4-2 score.

    As the team has done all spring, the Lady Chargers rode another huge performance from sophomore Taylor Roby to the win. Roby allowed just four hits while pitching and then she drove home three of the four runs with a home run and a double.

  • MW sports complex moving forward...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON— Sports lovers rejoice!

    Designs for the sports complex in Mount Washington are at 90 percent completion.

    Project planner Chad McCormick of Land Design and Development presented an update on the park’s progress.

    The facility plans to include areas for baseball, football, soccer, tennis, basketball and disc golf as well as a couple of playgrounds, a splash park and an amphitheater next to a pond.

  • BC now focused on reaching .500

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The season hasn’t gone exactly as the senior-laden Bullitt Central Cougars would like this spring, but with two weeks remaining in the regular season, the maroon and gray have a solid chance at finishing above the .500 mark.

    Despite losing six games by a single run, including all three games against 23rd District rivals, the Cougars stand at 12-15 after winning three games over the past ten days.

  • BE’s Wilson, Masden reaching...

     BARDSTOWN – The final time all three Bullitt County track teams will be competing in the same meet before the Class 3-A, Region 3 Championships came on Tuesday at the Border Battle Meet at Nelson County High School.

    While individual and team scoring was being contested, there was also a Bullitt County vs. Nelson County battle going on. Unfortunately, the Nelson County school prevailed in that duel on both the boys’ and girls’ side as Nelson County, Bardstown and Thomas Nelson got the best of Bullitt East, Bullitt Central and North Bullitt.

  • Local players seeded as quest...

    LOUISVILLE -- After local squads struggled in the team competition held last week, it is time for tennis players to begin their trek to the state tennis tournament.

    Region Six tennis action begins on Monday. 

    The girls will compete at Petersburg Park, located at Newburg Road and Indian Trail.

    The boys will compete at St. Xavier High School.

    All championships will be played at St. Xavier on Wednesday at 4 p.m.

    Girls’ action

  • NB’s Sizemore signs to play...

     HEBRON ESTATES – Sometimes it is the sport that comes first and the academics follow suit, especially early in the process.

    Other times, high school students have an occupation and career firmly planned out and the sport just follows along for fun.

    It was the latter for North Bullitt senior Tabitha Sizemore. The softball player had long ago decided that she wanted to attend Transylvania University in Lexington to study pre-med with the plans of becoming an anesthesiologist.

  • Roach seeking new programs to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Sometimes at the high school level, coaches and programs just need a change of scenery.

    A different point of view on how things should be done.

    With that in mind, Bullitt Central Lady Cougar head coach Kyle Roach stepped down from his position recently after four seasons at the helm. Roach is not closing the door on coaching again, perhaps even soon, but he felt that a new perspective was needed for all involved.

  • Lee steps down after 11 seasons

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There was really no surprise, but there was a lot of emotion last week when Bullitt Central basketball coach Joe Pat Lee announced that he was stepping down after 11 years at the helm of the program for which he once played.

    Lee had been thinking about making the move much earlier. The decision was actually made for him when he was named a new assistant principal at the school. The Bullitt County Board of Education does not allow principals to be coaches.
