  • 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.

  • Efforts underway to revive...

        BROOKS - Baseball’s Back In Brooks!

        David and Yvonda Arnold are tackling a new project for the Brooks community and they need your help.

        On Brooks Hill Road there is a baseball park that has been around for generations and seen its fair share of kids from the Brooks community and miles around grow up to become parents of their own little baseball and t-ball players.

        David and his father both grew up playing at the park and were sad to see it fall apart over the years.

  • Stevens, Milburn dominate...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Winning all five of the field events, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers got the outdoor track season off to a grand start on Tuesday as they beat 13 other teams to win an All-Comers Meet held at Shelby County High School.

        Coach Lenny Raley’s team doesn’t have a lot of depth, but they have some strong individuals including defending state champion Jackie Stevens. The senior won both the shot put and discus.

  • Butler was a tough first foe for...

        HEBRON ESTATES - Big games during the first week of the regular season seldom turn out as expected and even more so end up not having any bearing on what can happen when the post-season rolls around ten weeks later.

        That will hopefully be the case for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles as they opened the 2010 season with a 7-2 loss to Butler. A year ago, the two teams played a 1-0 game that Butler won in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament.

  • Week one was a learning...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Nobody expected the Bullitt East Chargers to pick up exactly where they left off last season, despite being the sixth-ranked team in the state in the pre-season coaches’ poll.

        That was good, because the first week of the season proved to be a challenge for the defending Sixth Region and Semi-State champions as they could only post a 3-3 record. There was some good news in those results and some very frustrating points.

  • County approves bid to get BCHS...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The county swimming pool next to Bullitt Central High School should be ready to go when the season starts in late May.

        Bullitt Fiscal Court, with the assistance of the YMCA of Bullitt County, agreed to a bid of Chester Pools of New Albany, Ind., to bring the facility into federal compliance.

        The project would include the removal of the old diving boards and leveling off of the pool’s bottom. The work would also fix the infiltration system to meet the federal safety standards.

  • BE grad Hanley plays in NCAA...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Two seasons, two trips to the NCAA Women’s National Championship Tournament.

        College basketball is working out just fine for former Bullitt East standout Whitney Hanley as she recently helped her Austin Peay Lady Governors’ to a second consecutive trip to the big show.

  • Defensive struggles hamper...

        HEBRON ESTATES - North Bullitt baseball skipper Brian Wise knew that his team would be inexperienced in terms of varsity play.

        And the first week of play this spring backed up those concerns.

        While seeing positives in each of the first five games, Wise admits that each contest has seen a different part of the Eagles’ play provide some disappointment.

        Facing two of the area’s top teams, the Eagles stumbled through week one with a 1-4 record.

  • BE slugger Whitmer also opts for...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Following in roughly the same route as a former and present teammate, Bullitt East slugging standout Josh Whitmer recently signed to play baseball at Lincoln Trail Community College in Robinson, Ill.

        That move will put Whitmer and his next team in the same conference as John A. Logan where Zach McCarthy now plays and where present Bullitt East teammate Matt Bowles recently committed.

  • BE has holes to fill from state...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Bullitt East looks at the 2010 edition of the Charger team and sees the return of three of the strongest players from a year ago, including the top two pitchers, and expect great things this spring.

        Long-time Charger head coach Jeff Bowles sees that also, but he also sees that he lost a lot of good players from last season.

        The good news is that Bowles sees a lot of new talent battling for varsity playing time.
