  • BC spends a lot of Florida trip...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – How often does a high school student get to wake-up, hear that school has been cancelled due to weather concerns and then goes and spends the day sitting on a beach.

    That is exactly what the Bullitt Central baseball team got to do last Wednesday during the squad’s trip to the Panama City Beach Bash during spring break.

  • 2017 All-Bullitt County...

      As part of the 2017 All-Bullitt County Basketball Team, Schmid Funeral Home presents the Male and Female Players of the Year with a trophy.

    The awards were recently presented to Bullitt East senior Charger player Jared Osborne while Lady Charger senior Lindsey Duvall won the award for the fourth time. Presenting the awards for Schmid Funeral Home were Mark Schmid and Tim Gonterman.

  • Track teams seem to have gotten...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The first track and field meet held in Bullitt County in four years turned out to be a success two weeks ago with Bullitt East hosting North Bullitt and Bullitt Central as well as Moore and Fern Creek.

    That is not to say that everything went perfectly, few track meets ever do, but it was a very positive first step. Much of the credit for the success goes to Bullitt East head coach Lenny Raley. No one person in Bullitt County is more important to a sport than Raley is to track.

  • BE slips past nemeses Butler 2-1

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It was a classic pitcher’s duel on Thursday between two teams that started the season ranked among the top dozen teams in the state when Bullitt East played host to its longtime thorn-in-the-side foe Butler.

    In the end, it was Bullitt East hurler Taylor Roby who got the best of Bearettes starter Annabelle Ramirez as the Lady Chargers pulled out a 2-1 victory.

    This was the first meeting between the rivals since Butler claimed a 1-0 victory a year ago in the first round of the Sixth Region tournament.

  • 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.
