  • Staples heads BC's sweep in...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central is a long way from a powerhouse track school, but the Cougar program is making a name for itself in one event - the high jump.

    In the previous decade, Bullitt Central had just two athletes advance to the Kentucky State Track and Field Championships - Rachel Haley (multiple times) and Nic Owens. Both advanced each time in the high jump with Owens finishing third in the boys’ event in 2005.

    FAIRDALE - North Bullitt and Southern set up a rematch of last year's 24th District Softball Tournament championship game on Tuesday when both team's eased into the final on the strength of one big inning.

    In the first game, North Bullitt took advantage of what at the time appeared to be a minor miscue by Bullitt Central to roll to a 6-0 victory.

    Southern scored three times in the top of the third inning to take a 4-0 lead over Bullitt East and they went on to record a 6-2 win.

    That’s good for the Bullitt East baseball program as the red and gold picked up a sixth straight district baseball title on Thursday when they beat North Bullitt 9-1. It was the fourth consecutive win in the 24th District after the team won the last two titles in the old 29th District.

    This year’s senior class is the third to play for head coach Jeff Bowles and to never have lost a district tournament game.

  • 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.
