  • Eagles roll early and then...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – He’s not a playwright. And he’s not a psychic.

    However, North Bullitt veteran baseball coach Brian Wise crafted out two pretty planned games to capture the school’s fifth consecutive District 23 title.

    The 12-7 victory over Moore on Friday will allow North Bullitt to host the Sixth Region opener on Monday morning. Play then advances to Jim Patterson Stadium on the University of Louisville campus.

    Delayed by rain for two days may have helped the Eagles.

  • Another classic, but Mercy beats...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – We should have expected no less.

    It was another classic on Friday night as it took 13 innings before the Mercy Jaguars pushed across a pair of runs to beat Bullitt East in the championship game of the 24th District Softball Tournament.

    The 2-0 score was the same as last years district final when the Lady Chargers lost to Fern Creek.

  • Moore knocks out BC in ‘...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Calling it the most frustrating game in his coaching career, Bullitt Central skipper G.J. Moore was left wondering what would have been.

    His Cougars had fought back from a 2-0 deficit only to see the Moore Mustangs win the opener of the District 23 baseball tournament 4-3.

    The second-seeded Mustangs were the home team on Bullitt Central’s field and needed that final at-bat to secure the victory.

    Keagan Gentry opened the Mustang seventh with a single to left field. Patrick Wells laid down a sacrifice bunt.

  • BC finishes a tough season with...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – While the outcome was the same, it was a totally different Bullitt Central softball team that played in the opener of the 23rd District tournament.

    After suffering a 17-0 loss to North Bullitt, the Lady Cougars fell 6-4 on Tuesday but it was an encouraging way to end the season.

    Still, it was the Lady Eagles who would advance to the championship game on Friday. North Bullitt would repeat as the district champ with a huge 10-3 victory over Southern.

    In the opener, North Bullitt would score two runs in the second inning.

  • Roby archery team targeted for...

     A season of firsts has Roby Elementary School archers aiming high.

    “We could not be happier,” said Archery Coach Alisha Bodner. “My archers have been super dedicated this season and practice at least four days a week.”

    Roby’s archery team has competed in 13 tournaments this school year including Regionals, State and Nationals (where they placed 111 out of 180 teams).

  • Former MW martial arts...

     BARDSTOWN -- The story began when three veterans, after serving in Korea, opened the first Tae Kwon Do school in the Kentuckiana area in Jeffersonville. 

    Dennis Wiley had been a sickly, asthmatic kid whose doctor had recommended him taking martial arts because of the benefits the breathing exercises would provide. Forty-nine years later, Master Dennis Wiley of Y-Lee’s School of Martial Arts was recognized by the EMAC, a national martial arts association, with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

  • Lady Lion success

     The Little Flock Lady Lions had an outstanding season. The team won the Our Savior Lutheran School’s 26th annual Roundball Classic and finished second in the St. Francis tournament.

    Kayli Smith scored her 1,000 point during her last game for Little Flock.

  • BE’s Masden third in girls’ 800-...

     LEXINGTON – The game plan was solid and the execution flawless, but it still wasn’t enough on Saturday for Bullitt East senior Lauren Masden to ‘steal’ a victory in the girls’ 800-meter run at the KHSAA Kentucky State Track and Field Championships at the University of Kentucky.

  • BE’s Peak signs with NAIA...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior Alyssa Peak was determined that she was not going to make a rush decision about a college during the season.

    That plan worked out to perfection as she would have made a completely different decision during the season.

    As it turned out, Peak didn’t really get any attention from the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, Kentucky until after the end of the season in March. Up until that point, Peak was getting most of the attention from Centre and Indiana University-Southeast.

  • Cougars finish 10th at archery...

     LOUISVILLE – Competing last weekend at the NASP Nationals in Louisville, the number one Bullitt Central team finished tenth overall out of 248 teams.

    Coach Dustin Metcalf’s squad finished with a score of 3,411, slightly off the team’s best mark of the season at 3,416. That score came in winning the KHSAA Region 4 title back in March.
