  • Eagles struggle in short week

     HEBRON ESTATES – It wasn’t the best of weeks for the North Bullitt Eagles.

    In fact, head coach Brian Wise said the game on Wednesday against LaRue County resulted in one of those annual heart-to-heart talks with his players.

    Still, with two weeks to go in the regular season, Wise is looking for a bounce-back week as the Eagles face a tough five-game stretch, including three at Bullitt East this Friday and Saturday.

  • North’s Keehn continues baseball...

     HEBRON ESTATES – North Bullitt senior Brady Keehn is like a lot of high school students when it comes to picking a college – he wanted to be away from home, but not too far away.

    That was what made Georgetown College near Lexington appear so perfect for Keehn. It took just one visit, in March, to decide that playing baseball for the Tigers, as well as being a student, was the best course of action for him.

  • With strong body of work early...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.

    Bullitt East senior basketball player Raegan Williams can say just that as she continued to press forward this winter after suffering an ACL injury in November that forced her to miss her entire senior season on the court.

    Still, through it all, Williams stayed positive and continued to push for her career goal of playing college basketball.

  • BE’s Duvall hospitalized again...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For the second time since the end of the high school basketball season, Bullitt East standout and 2017 Kentucky Miss Basketball Lindsey Duvall has spent time in the hospital due to continuing problems from her fall 2015 knee surgery that forced her to miss most of her junior season.

  • WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS: Eastside...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON— At the end of every cheer season, Eastside Middle coach Carrie DeBold wonders how the next year can get any better.

    After winning gold at the first ever International Cheer Union (ICU) Junior World Championships held in Orlando last week, she’s not too sure if next year can get better.

    Twenty-four girls competed last week against the best of the best from around the world.

  • Mother Nature wins out over East...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Mother Nature pretty much got the best of Bullitt East and the Louisville Invitational event that the Chargers were hosting last week.

    At first, it appeared that Bullitt East head coach Jeff Bowles had pulled a rabbit out of his hat by moving the first night of action up a day, starting the four-team round-robin event on Wednesday with a single game. There was also a single game on Thursday.

  • Region Three Track and Field set...

     SHEPHDERSVILLE -- Track and Field athletes from all three area high schools will be competing on Saturday at the Class 3-A, Region 3 Championships at Male High School.

  • North at East baseball Friday at...

      While the Mount Washington Spring Festival will be taking place downtown, baseball will be the focus on the east side of town as the Valu-Market Charger Challenge will be contested at Bullitt East on Friday and Saturday.

    This year’s event is loaded with top talent as the last three Sixth Region champions, North Bullitt (in 2014 and 2015) and Bullitt East (2016) will take part along with Louisville Trinity, the top-ranked team in Kentucky this season. The fourth squad is Martha Layne Collins.

  • Local tennis teams start...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Tennis players wrapped up the regular season last and prepare for Sixth Region action to begin Monday afternoon.

    The three high schools can have up to two singles players and two doubles teams entered into the regional tourney.

    Action will begin on Monday afternoon.

    (The regional draws were held on Sunday, which was past press deadlines for today’s Pioneer News.)

  • Fields are set for district...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – There are now just two weeks remaining in the in the regular season for baseball and softball and the pairings for the 23rd and 24th District Tournaments are already set.
