  • Chargers, Eagles split early...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - There is still a long-way to go in the 2010 track season, but North Bullitt and Bullitt East met for the first time outdoors on Tuesday of last week with the two rivals splitting the boys’ and girls’ titles.

        This was an All-Comers Meet that also included Whitefield Academy. Bullitt Central was scheduled to compete, but had to cancel at the last minute.

  • BE & BC share softball event

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt East and Bullitt Central will share a softball tournament this weekend when the High Five Bullitt County Softball invitational Tournament takes place at both schools.

  • Cougars rally in 8th to beat...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - A comeback from a 4-1 deficit midway through the fifth inning highlighted a second straight 1-1 week for the Bullitt Central baseball team to open the season.

        The big rally saw the Cougars move ahead of Waggener 6-4 only to have the game go into extra innings. Bullitt Central then run with a run in the bottom of the eighth. That win capped a week that also included a 12-8 loss at home to Bethlehem.

  • Lady Chargers run out of gas in...

    LOUISVILLE - One of the first things that Ricky Hoffman noted when he got the job as the Bullitt East softball coach in February was that the team did not have a spring break tournament on the schedule.

    Some quick calls and emails landed the team in the Southern Softball Bash at Southern High School. While the event turned out to have a few scheduling mishaps, the total tourney ended up being a positive for the Lady Chargers as they posted a 4-1 record, losing in the championship game to a team from Tennessee.

  • Wrestlemania: Zoneton's...

    ZONETON - Kyle Hoskins grew up as a wrestling fan. His current favorite is former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) champion John Cena.

    Thanks to a school librarian and a few books, Hoskins met Cena in person at WrestleMania XXV.

    He now hopes to repeat the moment again during an all-expenses-paid trip to Phoenix for WrestleMania XXVI.

    The Zoneton Middle School eighth grader earned a second Southeast Regional win in The WrestleMania Reading Challenge presented by the Young Adult Library Services Association.

  • BC softball still seeking

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - After snapping a short losing streak on Wednesday with an 11-0 victory over Bardstown, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars ran into more trouble over spring break as they headed into southcentral Kentucky for a series of games.

        The good news was that the maroon and gray regained the services of sophomore pitcher Seaera Minyard who has missed the previous week with stiffness in her arm. She worked each of the Lady Cougars’ games last week.

  • Finally - Home Sweet Home for BC...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Finally.

        After two years, some missteps, a lot of gnashed teeth and a truckload of frustration, it appears that the Bullitt Central baseball program finally has a place to call home. A pretty nice place at that.

        It was two years ago that the Cougars hit the road when their former home behind Roby Elementary was razed for construction on the new Roby Elementary. Bullitt Central had been playing baseball on that field since the school was formed in 1970.

  • Court wants to revive parks board

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Whether a partnership between the Bullitt Fiscal Court and the YMCA Bullitt County branch materializes with the parks and recreation department still hasn’t been decided.

        However, it appears there will be a revitalized county parks board, which hasn’t met in several years.

        After hearing comments at its second night-time forum on the partnership proposal, fiscal court members seemed poised to make sure the five-member board reformed in some shape and form.

  • Central learning on the run in...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central’s young softball team saw mixed results in the first week of the regular season, finishing 1-3 against some strong opposition.

        The only game during the week was a 5-3 setback to Sacred Heart. After a rain-out on Thursday to Pleasure Ridge Park, the Lady Cougars headed to Brandenburg for a tournament at Meade County High School.

  • Lady Chargers open with a 4-2...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - With a new coach and a number of new players, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers were anxious to get on the field and see what they could do against outside competition.

        Week one saw about what new head coach Ricky Hoffman expected as Bullitt East went 1-1, beating Spencer County 4-2 to open the season and then falling to Nelson County 5-0 on Saturday.
