  • Section 3 Semi-State Baseball...

    HODGENVILLE - Game two of the best-of-three Section 3 Baseball Tournament will be played on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at LaRue County High School.

    Bullitt East will have to win to stay alive and force a deciding game on Thursday.

    The first game loss will force Bullitt East to send junior Matt Bowles to the mound on Wednesday, but he will only be able to pitch for six innings. High school pitching rules permit a player to only work 15 innings in a calendar week. Bowles threw nine innings last Thursday in the Sixth Region championship game against Butler.

  • Knight at state tennis

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Bullitt East sophomore Makaela Knight will open play in her first Kentucky State Tennis Tournament on Thursday at the University of Kentucky.

    At 9 a.m. that morning, Knight will take the court against Zunilda Lynch, a senior from Onieida Baptist Institute. Neither player is amongst the 16 seeded players in the 64-player field.

    A victory in the opening match would probably lead to a match against Anne Marie Lyon of Lexington Christian. She is one of the eight players seeded between 9th and 16th.

  • Rain, prom win Charger Challenge

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The eighth week of the high school baseball season had more frustration than success for the Bullitt East Chargers last week as they got to play just two games.

    Most of the frustration came over the weekend as the team ended up playing just one game in the Charger Challenge, an event that head coach Jeff Bowles put together to showcase four of the top baseball programs in the state.

    In the end, Trinity, Harrison County and Lexington Catholic each got to take a crack at each other while Bullitt East pretty much sat on the sideline.

  • North wins 3 of 4 and gets...

    HEBRON ESTATES -- Unlike just about every other team in the area last week, the North Bullitt Eagles came close to playing a full schedule, managing to get in four games with three of those being victories.

    The only setback came on Saturday when the Eagles dropped a 5-4 decision to Oldham County in the first game of a four-team tournament at Kentucky Country Day. The green and gold rebounded later in the afternoon to take third place with an 11-1 victory over Portland Christian.

  • 24th District Softball: Early...

    FAIRDALE - It was worth the wait.

    Forced to stand around for over an hour waiting for umpires, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars unleashed that pent-up energy with seven runs over the first two innings as they rolled past Fairdale 8-1 on Monday in the first game of the 24th District Softball Tournament.

    The victory moved Bullitt Central into Tuesday’s semi-finals where the maroon and gray were to play top-seeded North Bullitt.

    Bullitt Central had beaten Fairdale 10-3 in their only meeting during the regular season.

  • BE boys roll; North, East tie...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - At the end of Tuesday’s All-Bullitt County Track and Field Championships at Bullitt East, North Bullitt track coach Mike Whitfill, who shares the duties with Lindsey Wegley, was left talking about what might have been after his girls’ team appeared to lose the meet by a single point.

    Two days later, after Bullitt East track coach Lenny Raley had gone back over the scoring, it was learned that the Lady Eagles had indeed pulled off a minor miracle, scoring enough points to tie the Lady Chargers 66 to 66. Bullitt Central was third with 26 points.

  • 24th District Baseball: Pitchers...

    FAIRDALE - If a person had not seen a single Bullitt Central baseball game all season, watching Monday’s District opener against Fairdale would have been a perfect illustration of a frustrating year.

    The Cougars got good pitching but little offense in a 2-1 setback to the host Bulldogs. The loss closed out the Bullitt Central season with a 5-18 mark.

    “This game was a mirror image of our entire season,” coach Tommy Alvey said following the loss. “The pitching has kept us in the ball games but we just haven’t been able to hit the ball.”

  • Scholarship in honor of Ennis

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Charles “Chuck” Ennis III had a very successful career in the military.

    But his dream was to someday go back to college and earn his bachelor’s degree.

    Unfortunately, on Jan. 29, 2008, Ennis was returning home from college when another vehicle crossed the center line. The son of Danny and Sandy Ennis died at the scene.
