  • Softball still fails to get any...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The high school softball season just can’t seem to get any traction or momentum through the first two weeks of the schedule.

    In fact, through two weeks, the three local programs have combined to play just five games. Between the three squads, there has been just one win, a victory by Bullitt Central over John Hardin late in week one.

    Otherwise, it has been sit around and wait for Mother Nature to get in a better mood.

  • Cougars second at (NASP) archery...

      LOUISVILLE – There will be plenty of pleasant memories this spring break for the Bullitt Central archery team members as coach Dustin Metcalf’s team finished second on Saturday at the Kentucky NASP State Tournament.

    Competing at the Kentucky Exposition Center, the Cougars moved up three spots from last year and finished with a final score of 3,429, just nine points behind winner Madison Central, the runner-up from a year ago.

  • BC bags second in NASP 3D shoot

     LOUISVILLE – While not as established as the main NASP shoots, the group has added the NASP/IBO 3D Challenge to its list of events.

    This was the second season for the event which includes many of the same participants as the regular shoots. Instead of standing in the same spot and shooting at targets, the archers in this event move and shoot at life-like 3D targets. The event is something that college programs have been doing for quite a few years.

  • BC Athletic Programs Hosting...

     The Bullitt Central athletic program will conduct a Golf Scramble on Sunday, April 29, at the Crossing Golf Course in Brooks.

    Registration for the event will start at 12:15 p.m. with a shot gun start set for 1 p.m.

    The game consists of a four-member team, non-handicap, 18-hold scramble with a shot gun start. Golf cars are included. Every golfer will be entered in a raffle to win a prize.

    The day will be made enjoyable with pin challenges, creative games at selected holes, waffles, lunch and short awards program following play with prizes.

  • North gets on the field but...

     HEBRON ESTATES  -- The North Bullitt baseball program is making its eighth consecutive spring break trip to the Cal Ripkin Experience in Myrtle Beach.

    What head coach Brian Wise is searching for is not necessarily four victories. 

    What the veteran skipper is looking for is a week of good weather so his very young team can get on the field.

    And, of course, building team chemistry and enjoying some time on the beach are also part of the agenda.

  • Op-Ed -- High school sports...

     The following piece was written by Bob Gardner, Executive Director of the National Federation of State High School Associations and Jillian Tackett, Commissioner of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association.

     

    Unfortunately, today many parents are trying to live out a dream through their sons and daughters – the dream of landing a college athletic scholarship by specializing in a sport year-round. Equally unfortunately, most of these dreams are never realized.

  • Athletic scholarships 101

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There were six players this winter that played basketball at Spalding University in Louisville, both males and females.

    That is great. All six of those players had stories about their college signings in this newspaper.

    And they all had something else in common. Not one of them got paid a dime based on their basketball ability.

    Spalding is an NCAA Division III program. Division III programs are not allowed to give athletic aid. 

  • NB’s Graham signs with Midway...

     HEBRON ESTATES — Coaches will often say a player’s best years are ahead of them.

    For Sierra Graham, there may be no more truthful statement.

    Coming off a major knee injury and joining a new team, Graham’s senior season has been an eventful one and, at times, frustrating. But, there is a silver lining.

    Recently, despite limited playing time during her senior season, Graham recently signed to continue her talents on the basketball court for Midway University.

  • Tennis teams sneak in matches

     SHEPHERDSVILLE  — Mother Nature continued to play tricks with spring sports.

    Tennis did not escape the elements. In fact, only a couple of matches escaped the weather prior to spring break.

    North Bullitt

    The Eagles went to Highview Park on Monday and came home with a 2-1 victory over Moore in its first match of the season.

    Gavin Simmerman lost to Moore’s Parker Hargrove in the lone singles match.

  • East’s Perdue decides to play...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior Hunter Perdue will be the first to say that the recruiting process was not as easy for him as it is for some others.

    After rushing for 1,918 yards on 197 carries as a junior and scoring 22 touchdowns, Perdue was thinking about NCAA Division I programs.
