  • 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.

  • 8th Region tennis starts in...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The first spring sport to move into the post-season will be tennis as the Bullitt County programs start Eighth Region play Monday morning in Frankfort.

    This will be the fourth straight season that the local teams have competed in the Eighth Region.

    The boys’ teams will once again play all of their matches on Monday and Tuesday at Franklin County High School. The girls’ will play their opening rounds at Western Hills High School. Action on Monday will start at 9:30 a.m. with matches all day. Play on Tuesday will resume at 4:30 p.m.

  • Lady Chargers' Knight heads...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Bullitt East’s McKaela Knight will be looking to secure a high seed when the sophomore and her Lady Charger teammates head to South Oldham on Monday in one of the final tune-ups for the upcoming regional tournament.

    A year ago, Knight was seeded fourth in the regional tournament, a spot behind teammate Tabitha Collins. Unfortunately, some youthful jitters got her early in the tourney and she was sent to the sidelines by a player that she had beaten during the regular season.

  • 2009 Girls' Kentucky State...

    HEBRON ESTATES - Turning the tables on teams that they had lost to during the regular season, including two-time defending state champion Pleasure Ridge Park, the North Bullitt girls’ bowling program brought home its first state championship last Saturday.

    It was a long and productive day for the team as they competed at King Pin Lanes in Louisville. It took five hours before the Lady Eagles defeated Sacred Heart 3-0 in Baker games in the championship showdown.

  • Eagle tennis has experience, but...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The North Bullitt boys’ tennis team hasn’t picked up a lot of victories so far this season, but coach Monica Clark’s team is close to putting it all together.

    Part of the problem this spring is that some of the team members are also involved in other sports - mainly baseball. Some play for the Eagle diamond team while others are in local leagues

  • Eagles' Sibley signs for...

    HEBRON ESTATES -- With a little help from his older brother, North Bullitt senior Carter Sibley sailed through the recruiting process over the past year, signing on Friday to play baseball at Alice Lloyd College in Pippa Passes, Kentucky.

    Older brother Tyler, who also played at North Bullitt, went through the same process, ending up at the University of the Cumberlands. He is now an assistant coach at Eastern High School.

  • Eagles beat Trinity behind...

    HEBRON ESTATES - It was a short week for the North Bullitt Eagles, but  there was a huge victory as the green and gold turned back top-25 power Trinity by a 4-3 score on Wednesday.

    A day later, the outcome was not as positive as the Eagles traveled to North Oldham and lost to the Mustangs 8-1.

  • BE baseball is hot again with...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Once again, the Bullitt East Chargers came out of playing in the Louisville Invitational Tournament on a hot streak.

    A year ago, the red and gold lost a game in that event and then did not lose again until the final of the Sixth Region Tournament, a mark of 14 straight wins.

    This season, Bullitt East lost twice the previous week in the LIT and then won four straight games last week including a 12-0 victory over Western Hills on Thursday, a team that has beaten Pleasure Ridge Park this year.
