  • Bullitt Cup soccer set for...

    HEBRON ESTATES - Boys’ soccer will get a little air-time this weekend when the Bullitt Cup is contested on Friday and Saturday at North Bullitt.

    This will be the second year for the event that matches all three Bullitt County teams in a round-robin event. A year ago, Bullitt East won the inaugural event on their home field.

  • Chargers to open season Saturday...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers will start the 2009 season on Saturday in unfamiliar surroundings and against an unknown opponent.

    Coach Doug Preston’s team will open the next two seasons playing in the Joe Jaggers Classic, an early-season ‘bowl’ game situation at North Hardin High School. The opponent this year will be Paul Laurence Dunbar, the state’s largest public high school.

    Bullitt East has never played at North Hardin and they have never squared off against Dunbar.

  • Blue Lick 12 falls few plays shy...

    OKOLONA - Different place. Same result.

    The Blue Lick 12 All-Stars came up a few plays short for a second consecutive tournament in falling to Prairie Village on Monday evening.

    After losing in the finals of the district tournament, Blue Lick fell to Prairie Village twice on Monday in the state tournament.

    While Prairie Village is guaranteed a spot in the Ohio Valley Regional tournament in Lexington this weekend, there is still a chance that Blue Lick will receive a wild card berth.

  • One inning of offense not enough...

    BOWLING GREEN - Manager Scott Belt was confident that the bats of his Blue Lick 15-year-old All-Stars would come alive in the state baseball tournament.

    And, for one inning, they did. Unfortunately, the offense didn’t make the trip to Bowling Green and the local team finished with a 2-2 record.

    In the opener, Blake Hardy pitched a complete game and Blue Lick won 4-0.

    However, they did it without getting a hit off Warren County pitchers.

    Combining errors and walks, Blue Lick advanced to a second round encounter against Henderson County.
