  • Could the Sixth Region soon be...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Let the rumors begin!

    Earlier this summer, the grapevine was ripe with news that the Kentucky High School Athletic Association was beginning the process of realigning the state’s 16 regions for girls’ and boys’ basketball, baseball and softball.

    The KHSAA did the same thing about six years ago and that led to Bullitt County’s move from the Eighth Region to the Sixth Region. That has been the law of the land for the past four years.

  • Eastside Edge Camp

    There was plenty of basketball to be played last week at the annual Eastside Edge Hoops Camp.

    The morning and afternoon sessions attracted nearly 100 young players.

    The camp was conducted by Eastside coaches Josh Meredith and Brian Smith.

  • Defense, pitching keeps Blue...

    HILLVIEW - The bats may not have been ringing as well as manager Scott Belt would have liked but defense and pitching carried the Blue Lick 15 All-Stars to the District 13 championship.

    The team will advance to state tournament play Wednesday at 8 p.m. in Bowling Green.

    “The defense and pitching carried us,” Belt said after being showered with water during the victory celebration.

    Many of the players advanced to last year’s 14-year-old state tournament as a district runner-up. This time, they will go as district champs.

  • Kentucky Basketball Coaches...

    LOUISVILLE - A trio of local players, Bullitt East’s Kayla Thacker, Bullitt Central’s Qualeatha Bennett and Bullitt East’s Shelby Romine combined with Bullitt Central head coach Bryan Bates to lead the West team to a 71-41 victory on Saturday night in the Kentucky High School Coaches’ Association East-West All-Star Game at Bellarmine University.

  • Charger Open is Wednesday over...

    CEDAR GROVE - Through the combination of Heritage Hill Golf Course and Bullitt East, one of the top early season golf tournaments will be held on Wednesday with the Bullitt East Charger Open.

    The tournament lost it’s main sponsor for a year ago, but first-year Bullitt East head coach Kyle Downs has managed to assemble some smaller sponsors for this tourney.

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - I have a dream. What I like to think of as ‘Farner Dreams.’

    OK, I have lots of dreams. If you sleep a lot, then you have a lot of dreams. Nobody enjoys ‘resting their eyes’ more than me.

    Still, after 32 years of doing this job, my eyes are wide open when it comes to seeing what Bullitt County needs in terms of sports and recreation facilities in our community. At this point, there are varying levels and success stories for what is already present.
