  • Duvall may not be going to UK...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – The upheaval in the University of Kentucky’s women’s basketball program took another bad turn last week when Bullitt East junior Lindsey Duvall, who had committed to the Lady Wildcats back in November, re-opened the recruiting process.

    The news was first reported by Brett McCormick of the All-Star Girls Report on news from her father, Tom, and then Bullitt East head coach Chris Stallings.

  • Three local players headed to...

     LOUISVILLE -- One player expected to return to the state tournament.

    Another had that as a possibility.

    And another wasn’t even the top singles player on her team prior to the start of this season.

    It doesn’t matter the pre-season talk. Bullitt East’s Jacob Staples and Savannah Kruse, along with Bullitt Central’s Rebecca Price will be heading to Lexington this week to participate in the state tennis tournament.

  • State Tourney in Lexington

     LEXINGTON -- The three Bullitt County players who advanced to the Kentucky State Tennis Tournament after last week’s Sixth Region Tournament in Louisville, will begin play on Thursday.

  • BC’s Rippy signs to cheer with...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- For some high school seniors, making a college selection is easy -- especially if you make that decision as a freshman.

    For Bullitt Central’s Miranda Rippy it might not have been that cut and dry, but she says that as a freshman she was positive that she wanted to attend Morehead State University and join the school’s national power cheerleading program.

  • MW sports complex moving forward...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON— Sports lovers rejoice!

  • BE’s Wilson, Masden reaching...

     BARDSTOWN – The final time all three Bullitt County track teams will be competing in the same meet before the Class 3-A, Region 3 Championships came on Tuesday at the Border Battle Meet at Nelson County High School.

    While individual and team scoring was being contested, there was also a Bullitt County vs. Nelson County battle going on. Unfortunately, the Nelson County school prevailed in that duel on both the boys’ and girls’ side as Nelson County, Bardstown and Thomas Nelson got the best of Bullitt East, Bullitt Central and North Bullitt.

  • District baseball and softball...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – If Mother Nature allows the post-season for softball and baseball will start on Monday with play for all six Bullitt County teams in the 23rd and 24th District Tournaments.

    The first ‘big’ game of the week will come right out of the blocks on Monday when North Bullitt and Bullitt Central collide in the first round of the 23rd District Baseball Tournament at Moore High School. North Bullitt won the regular season meeting between the two schools 7-6 after trailing 5-0 early.

  • North stays hot...blazing hot......

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Players and coaches may not think about it but the scoreboard operator can play an important role in a baseball game.

    In a week in which North Bullitt routinely swept through three games, something out of the ordinary happened in the 12-1 win over Fern Creek.

    With no outs in the top of the fourth inning Thursday, Blake Benz was on third base and Brady Keehn was on first after a two-RBI single.

  • BC now focused on reaching .500

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The season hasn’t gone exactly as the senior-laden Bullitt Central Cougars would like this spring, but with two weeks remaining in the regular season, the maroon and gray have a solid chance at finishing above the .500 mark.

    Despite losing six games by a single run, including all three games against 23rd District rivals, the Cougars stand at 12-15 after winning three games over the past ten days.
