  • Ball fields coming along in...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - While the activities have slowed due to the winter weather, things have been busy along the Salt River.

        Shepherdsville’s First Street Park has been a beehive of activity - from the public and from construction crews.

        Engineer Rob Campbell said a lot of work has been done at the Shepherdsville Park over the past year.

        Recently, the city hosted a luncheon to show off the improvements from some of the contributors and to talk about plans for the future.

  • Bitter Finish - Chargers stuble...

        LOUISVILLE - Bullitt East’s magic carpet ride of a season came to a frustrating end Saturday night in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament.

        Leading 57-49 with 2:10 remaining against Butler, the Chargers failed to close the deal, turning the ball over three times during the next 90 seconds. The Bears would end the game on a 13-1 run as they won 62-58 before an overflow crowd at Knights Hall on the campus of Bellarmine University.

  • End of basketball means spring...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - While most of the sports focus this past weekend was on Bullitt East having a pair of teams in the Sixth Region basketball semi-finals, a small contingent of local track athletes was having a big day at the 50th annual Mason-Dixon Games in Broadbent Arena.

    The Mason-Dixon Games serve as the official/unofficial Indoor State Track and Field Championships.

  • NB's Lee goes low in...

    LOUISVILLE - Swimming her best time ever, North Bullitt junior Caroline Lee finished third on Saturday in the Girls’ 100-yard breaststroke at the Kentucky State Swimming and Diving Championships at the Ralph Wright Natatorium on the University of Louisville campus.

    Lee struggled just a little in the preliminaries on Friday, finishing fourth in a time of 1:06.52. Still, that was plenty fast enough to move into Saturday’s championship race which had eight swimmers.

  • Three wins go to locals at state...

    FRANKFORT - Bullitt County wrestlers picked up three victories last week at the Kentucky State Wrestling Championships at the Frankfort Convention Center.

    This was truly a year of transition for local wrestling.

    Bullitt Central graduated two medal-winning wrestlers from the past two years and also has a new coach. Bullitt East’s program is being built from the ground up starting this winter.

    Bullitt East finished with six points with two victories.

  • BC's Bennett earns summer...

    LOUISVILLE - Bullitt Central senior running back/defensive back Jeremaie Bennett was named earlier this week to the West squad for the Best of the Bluegrass East-West All-Star Football Game.

    The contest, which replaces the old Kentucky All-Star team that played Tennessee, will be played on Saturday, June 18 at Western Kentucky University.

    Bennett was one of 75 players from across the state selected for the game. In all, 14 players from the Louisville area were picked for the game.

  • Thursday night lockdown didn...

    LOUISVILLE - If you do this job long enough, you will finally see it all.

    Still, Thursday night’s power outage at Bellarmine University, which forced most of the regional tournaments in Louisville back a day, was something I had never been a part of or even imagined could ever happen.

  • Oh Sweat! Junior's bomb at...

        OKOLONA - A three-pointer from junior Hayden Sweat with three seconds remaining was the harpoon that finally lifted the Bullitt East Chargers to a 57-55 victory over Fairdale in the championship game of the 24th District Tournament at Southern High School.

  • Friday was a big day/night to...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Friday was a red letter day to be a Bullitt East Charger.

    First and foremost, that night the Chargers won their first 24th District Title when they got a three-point shot from Hayden Sweat at :03 to beat new-rival Fairdale 57-55. It was the third time in the last four years that the two programs had met for the district crown.

    On a team that starts two freshmen, two juniors and a senior, winning a district title is a wonderful accomplishment.

  • Lady Chargers bounce Holy Cross

    LOUISVILLE - The Bullitt East Lady Chargers made something that is quite difficult look easy on Friday in the semi-finals of the Girls’ Sixth Region Tournament at Bellarmine University’s Knights Hall.

    Holding Holy Cross, the highest scoring team in the region, to 26 points below its average, the Lady Chargers rolled into Sunday’s championship game with a 54-36 win over the Lady Cougars.
