  • NB's Schott signs to...

    LOUISVILLE - North Bullitt senior Sara Schott got the best of both worlds last week when she signed to attend Midway College in Midway, Ky.

    On one hand, she will get to continue playing volleyball for a program that is trying to rebuild itself under third-year head coach Cindy Cheatham. At the same time, she gets to follow her dream to major in accounting. It also didn’t hurt that Midway is not too far away from home.

  • Cougars win a game, but then...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars picked up one win last week, but for the most part the maroon and gray struggled with poor fielding which overshadowed some strong pitching and improved hitting.

    The week started with a 14-4 loss to Fairdale. The outcome means that the two teams will meet in the first round of the 24th District Tournament which will be played at Fairdale this season. Fairdale will have the number four seed while Bullitt Central will be the number five team.

  • Lady Cougars find ways to win...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- A week earlier, Bullitt Central softball coach Buddy Gallemore was lamenting his team’s inability to win close ball games.

    What a difference a week makes. The Lady Cougars did a much better job of getting the key hit at key times as they won three of five games last week including a 7-5 victory over Southern.

  • Micah's Chester to play for...

    HILLVIEW -- What college basketball coach has won the most national championships and what school does he work for?

    Give up.

    Ron Arnett has won 11 national championships as head coach of the Kentucky Christian University Lady Knights, including the past three National Christian College Athletic Association titles.

    When Rachel Chester of Micah Christian Academy in northern Bullitt County went down to try out for a possible spot on next year’s roster, the coach who has won 78 percent of his games at the Grayson, Ky., university was impressed.

  • Vittitoe takes 'big heart...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- If you ask veteran football coach Dan Leasor the size of senior Jesse Vittitoe, the answer would be “big enough.”

    If you asked Vittitoe, the answer would be the same.

    While there may be football players who are taller and heavier than the Bullitt Central player, there is none with a bigger heart.

    That heart and desire will lead the son of Kathy and Michael Vittitoe, to Illinois College to continue his gridiron career.

  • BE's Smith picks a sport,...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Bullitt East senior Chelsey Smith had some tough questions to answer this spring before she starts college in the fall.

    No, picking a college didn’t turn out to be as difficult as selecting a sport. Smith is participating in three sports during this school year and in two of those, volleyball and basketball, she has been a part of the varsity teams for the past four seasons.

    After weighing all of the options, Smith decided that volleyball was the sport she was best suited to pursue in the future.

  • North reverses earlier loss,...

    HEBRON ESTATES - North Bullitt softball coach Eric Lambert never used the word ‘revenge’ last Thursday before his team took the field against Bullitt East, a team that had beaten the Lady Eagles 5-4 earlier in the season.

    Of course, that’s not to say that some of his players weren’t thinking revenge.

    Whatever the word was that North Bullitt was thinking, it worked to perfection as the green and gold picked up an 8-1 victory.

  • Track's new era starts...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- High school track and field in Kentucky will enter a new era starting this week as the KHSAA has realigned the sport overall as well as revamping the qualifying standards for those reaching and competing at the state championships.

    As with most changes, there is some good and some bad and it will take a little while to get used to things. The growing pains will start on Saturday as track teams across the state to compete in regional meets.

  • NB-Southern to try again...

    HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Eagles will try for a third and final time on Wednesday of this week to play district rival Southern.

    Twice earlier this season the two teams have been rained out. This is the final game left in the regular season between 24th District teams.

    The KHSAA gave all district teams an extension late last week to play intra-district contests because of all the bad weather this spring. The old deadline was on Sunday and it has now been extended to Thursday.
