  • Jones' three-run blast...

    HODGENVILLE - When it rains it pours.

    The Bullitt East Chargers haven’t really been an all or none team this spring, but that is the way it worked out on Friday as the red and gold scored eight times in the bottom of the sixth inning to beat Elizabethtown 8-4 in the second game of the best-of-three Section III event at LaRue County High School.

    Through the first 12 innings of the tournament, Bullitt East had managed one run and had seen very little success against Panther pitching.

  • Key plays go against Chargers in...

    HODGENVILLE - After allowing six runs, all with two outs, the Bullitt East Chargers find themselves behind the eight ball in the Section 3 Semi-State Tournament against Elizabethtown.

    In a game of key hits, it was the Panthers that made all the right moves as they rolled to a 6-1 decision in the best-of-three series at LaRue County High School. The two teams will meet again on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the second game.

  • Alphin's arm muzzles Colts...

    LOUISVILLE - Bullitt East junior Brandon Alphin had the arm and that was more than enough for the Chargers on Wednesday as they cruised past DeSales 6-1 in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Baseball Tournament at the University of Louisville’s Jim Patterson Stadium.

    Alphin had some of his best stuff of the season as he was perfect through the first four innings against the 22nd District champions. He did walk three batters in the fifth inning to allow the one run to score, but the Colts’ only two hits in the game came in the sixth inning.

  • KENTUCKY STATE BASEBALL...

    LEXINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers lose in the semi-finals of the 2009 Forcht Bank/Kentucky State Baseball Tournament 6-5 to Owensboro.

    The Chargers end their memorable season with a 31-9 overall record.

    Owensboro, despite a 14-15 record, advance to Saturday' state finals versus Lexington Catholic at Aplebee's Park in Lexington.

  • BE's Hoffman signs for...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Bullitt East senior second baseman Jimmy Hoffman found just the perfect fit recently when he signed to play his college ball at St. Catharine College in Springfield, Kentucky.

    Hoffman can play the game that he loves while at the same time being close enough to home for family and friends to watch many of his games.

    “The coaches were really nice and they have a good program,” Hoffman said last week after signing all the official papers to attend the NAIA school. “Their record is good and it’s close to home.”

  • Eagles get single run needed to...

    FAIRDALE - It was the game everyone expected.

    North Bullitt ace Matt Wagner versus Southern ace Reggie Young.

    In a game in which one run might make the difference, the North Bullitt Eagles got that single run across the plate Wednesday to win 1-0 over the Trojans in the semifinals of the 24th District baseball tournament at Fairdale High School.

    While Wagner and Young were mowing down batters, it was junior Aric Hester who came up with the big hit for the Eagles.

  • 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.

  • Lady Eagles to move on to...

    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.

  • Lieber, Meyer first home in Mt....

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - An influx of young runners swelled the number of entrants in the Mount Washington Spring Festival Run to the largest field ever with 378 taking part.

    The young runners were part of a push to develop an elementary school age event. Students and teachers participated from Pleasant Grove Elementary, Mount Washington Elementary and Old Mill Elementary.

    The Elementary Fun Run covered half a mile. Those runners started after the regular runners and most were done before the top finishers got back to the finish line.
