  • Lady Eagles stay hot; beat BC 5-1

    HEBRON ESTATES - It was a perfect week for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles as they added three more wins to the season including a 5-1 victory over Bullitt Central on Friday.

    It was the second win this spring over their county rivals for the green and gold, but this game was a lot closer than the earlier 10-1 game despite the fact that North Bullitt pitcher Cierra Hayes threw a no-hitter.

    North Bullitt impressed even head coach Eric Lambert earlier in the week when they beat Sixth Region rival Presentation 9-1. They followed that up with a 10-2 victory over Holy Cross.

  • Honors have flown freely for...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – There has been no shortage of honors for a handful of local athletes now that the high school basketball season is complete.

    As was reported in last Wednesday’s edition of the Pioneer News, Bullitt Central senior Lindsay Hester has been invited to the try-outs for the Kentucky All-Star team that will take on the best from Indiana in the annual summer series.

  • Lady Chargers go 2-1 in their...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Rain on Friday shortened the High Five Sporting Good/Bullitt East Invitational, but the Lady Chargers picked up some much needed wins on Saturday as they won two of three games in pool play.

    Unfortunately, because of the rain on Friday, the tournament format had to be altered, keeping the host team from moving out of pool play. Instead of all the teams moving out of pool play into a single-elimination tournament, only the two pool winners advanced to a championship game.

  • County track programs get their...

    HEBRON ESTATES -- For the first time this spring, the three Bullitt County track programs got a look at each other in an All-Comers Meet at North Bullitt that also included DeSales.

    This was a relatively small event that all the programs were using to try different things. In fact, it was the first meet that first-year North Bullitt boys’ coach Michael Whitfill had ever hosted.

    Bullitt East picked up the most points in both the boys’ and girls’ meets, but no official results had been posted by the weekend.

  • Lady Eagles stay hot, roll past...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- A day after losing 8-0 to the state’s top-ranked team, Ballard, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles got back in the saddle on Wednesday and beat Bullitt Central 10-1.

    Those two wins came just a few days after North Bullitt had capped spring break with a four game sweep in a tournament at Washington County. Coach Eric Lambert’s team opened with a 2-1 victory over Bishop Brossart and then turned back Danville 2-0. Pool play then concluded with a 4-1 victory over West Aurora (IL.) ‘A’ by a 4-1 count.

  • Softball, baseball teams...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The post-season is still a month away, but some of the most important games of the regular season will be played this week for the area diamond teams in the 24th District.

    Of course, the first words associated with that plan are ‘weather permitting’. As anyone who follows high school spring sports in Kentucky, following the weather comes in a close second to keeping track of your favorite team.

  • East falters against Butler,...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - For the second time this season, the Bullitt East Chargers had trouble against a top-flight opponent on Thursday as they lost to Sixth Region rival Butler 15-10.

    While scoring ten runs was a good thing in the eyes of head coach Jeff Bowles, the other parts of the game suffered for the Chargers including poor pitching performances from the team’s top two arms - juniors Brandon Alphin and Matt Bowles.

    Bullitt East did bounce back on Saturday, taking a pair of lopsided wins over Atherton, 18-0 and 21-0.

  • Sanctioned vs. non-sanctioned;...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Twice in the past month I’ve written high school sports stories that have dealt with non-sanctioned events.

    In this context, non-sanctioned means a sport that is not recognized by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association. Last week it was archery. This week it is bowling.

    In both instances, the groups in question were representing their schools. For archery it was Bullitt East. In bowling it was North Bullitt. When they compete, they represent their school and wear the school colors proudly.

  • Bullitt East is still undefeated...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East boys’ tennis team is off to a quick start to the 2009 season, going undefeated through the first three weeks of the regular season.

    The most recent win came on Thursday when coach Dustin Armstrong’s team traveled to Shepherdsville and beat Bullitt Central 5-0. The squad also has a 5-0 victory over North Bullitt earlier in the campaign.

    The Chargers have also beaten Whitefield Academy 3-2 as well as Seneca 4-1. A match with Oldham County on Friday was rained out.

  • Recent snubs seem out of line...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Over the past few years, Bullitt County athletes and teams have garnered more and more respect - most of it earned and given with good cause.

    However, every so often some things happen that just make you say out loud ‘what were they thinking?’

    That has happened a handful of times over the past month or so.

    First, Kentucky’s high school football coaches voted recently to select two teams for an East-West All-Star game that will be played on the campus of Western Kentucky University.
