  • BC’s youth hoping to learn from...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – No matter how you look at it, Bullitt Central’s boys’ soccer program had a breakout season in 2015.
        For the first time ever, the team won a 23rd District title, beating Southern 1-0 on penalty kicks, and then the Cougars beat Bullitt East 4-3 for the first regional win in program history. The run didn’t end until a 3-0 loss to Fairdale on the artificial turf at Mercy High School in the Sixth Region semi-finals.

  • McDonald makes it four Chargers...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON – It’s all about team.
        Having good teammates paid big dividends for Bullitt East baseball standout Zach McDonald this summer when he received and accepted an offer to continue his diamond career at Brescia University in Owensboro.
        McDonald becomes the fourth, and final, Charger player to sign with Bearcats’ head coach Andrew Dickson.

  • BE’s Krommenacker set to join...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The baseball pipeline between Mount Washington and Owensboro is running at full speed this summer as Bullitt East baseball standout Derrick Krommenacker recently signed to play for Brescia University starting in the fall.

    When all is said and done, four players from the Charger team that reached the Final Four of the Kentucky State Baseball Tournament, will sign with the Bearcats and head coach Andrew Dickson.

  • Hoffman takes over third team to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – As if he didn’t butt heads with Mercy’s high-powered athletic program enough already as Bullitt East’s softball and bowling coach, now Ricky Hoffman is taking on the biggest challenge of all -- battling the Jaguars in volleyball.

  • Higgs set to lead North...

     HEBRON ESTATES – Five coaches in five seasons.

    Just think how good North Bullitt’s volleyball program could be with stability at the top.

  • Lady Eagles seek final push to...

     HEBRON ESTATES – Four years, four 23rd District Tournament titles.

    Four seasons, four trips to the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament.

    Those are all great accomplishments, especially for a program that before the recent surge, had very little success in girls’ soccer. The recent past, including last season’s 15-6-2 record, has been good for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles, but they are looking for more in 2016.

  • Lady Chargers set to make...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – There is no greater broken record in area sports than the Sixth Region girls’ soccer tournament.

    In 2016, Bullitt East is once again out to break that record.

    Over the past four seasons, since the present alignment has been put into place, the Lady Chargers have lost 12 straight games to Mercy. Four of those came in the championship game of the Sixth Region Tournament, four came in the final of the 24th District Tournament and four came during the regular season.

  • Blue Lick gets community send...

     HILLVIEW -- Before departing on a plane heading to Ephrata, Wash., the Blue Lick 18 All Stars had a little parade on Sunday.

    Escorted from the Zoneton Firehouse to Challis Ford Ball Park, the Blue Lick All Stars were honored for winning the Ohio Valley Regional baseball tournament.

    Their reward is a trip to the Babe Ruth World Series. Blue Lick will be one of 10 teams to compete for the national crown.

  • Chargers finish in middle of...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The high school sports year got started with a bag locally on Friday as the Charger Invitational at Heritage Hill, sponsored by Schmid Funeral Home, was contested on the very first day of the season.

    The field has gotten better in each of the past several years and this time around a loaded field turned out to be dominated by teams from the state’s Fourth Region as Ballard won with a 297 to beat a pair of Oldham County teams -- North Oldham at 301 and Oldham County at 312.

  • East’s Duvall commits to play...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior-to-be Lindsey Duvall -- after a lot of questions and second-guessing over the past few months -- on Saturday committed to play her college basketball at the University of Louisville.
