  • Central blows out Fern Creek 12-2

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central hasn’t had a lot of success over the past decade or so in baseball, but third-year head coach Tommy Alvey feels that his team is just a few breaks away from having a winning record this year.

    That was the case again last week as the team went 1-2. Even though the team was blanked in a perfect game by North Bullitt’s Matt Wagner, the Cougars only lost the game 1-0.

    The maroon and gray then came back to blister Fern Creek 12-2 in five innings before falling to Jeffersontown 10-4 on Saturday.

  • BC's Hester selected for...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central senior Lindsay Hester picked up a major basketball honor earlier this week when she was selected as one of 39 players to try-out for the Girls’ Kentucky All-Star team.

    Seven players from the Louisville area were picked for the try-outs which will be held April 17-18 at Campbellsville University.

  • Tennessee road trip provides...

    HEBRON ESTATES - A spring break trip to the foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains turned out to be a positive adventure for the North Bullitt Eagles last week as coach Brian Wise’s team won four of five games.

    That action left the team with a 5-3 mark after the first two weeks of the regular season.

    “We were promised five games in four days and we got that in,” Wise said on Monday. “It was a good thing for us to get all the games in. All-in-all, it was a successful week.”

  • Charger spring break trip had...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Behind some strong pitching, the Bullitt East Chargers returned home from a spring break trip to Florida with a perfect 4-0 mark for the first time.

    That performance left the team with a 6-1 record over the first two weeks of the regular season.

  • East girls took a big step;...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Before the season began, Bullitt East Lady Charger head coach Chris Stallings talked about using a lot of players early in the season and then paring that number down in the second half of the season.

    As it turned out, his players never made that possible. The Lady Chargers ended up just as likely to use 12 players in a big game in February as they were in December. Few teams in the state turned out to be as deep as the red and gold.

  • Young BC softball squad wins...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – The youthful Bullitt Central softball team gained even more confidence last week with three more wins including a key district win over Fairdale by a 10-3 count.

    Playing three games over spring break, the Lady Cougars won each of the three. That left the team with a 4-1 mark two weeks into the regular season.

  • East softball needs a few breaks

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The record isn’t what second-year Bullitt East softball coach Ed Phelps would like, but he feels that with a key play here or a hit there, that the Lady Cougars would have a much better record than the 1-6 start.

    That was especially true last week as the team went to Fort Walton Beach, Florida for a spring break tournament. Bullitt East lost all five games on the trip but two of the losses were by single runs.

  • Lady Eagles get plenty of early...

    HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Lady Eagles had the peddle to the metal last week, playing seven games in the opening week of the regular season, more than twice as many games as any other spring sports team.

    Most of the games were played over the weekend as the green and gold dodged rain drops to compete in the Ballard Invitational. Against some top-flight opponents, coach Eric Lambert’s team reached the tournament semi-finals before losing for a second time in as many days to Christian Academy.

  • Central starts fast but then...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – A quick start in the Valley Invitational was good for the Bullitt Central Cougars, but playing two games on the third day of the double-elimination event was more than the maroon and gray could handle.

    After outscoring their first two opponents in the seven-team field 23-1, the Cougars fell in the championship game of the winner’s bracket 8-1 to eventual tournament champion Christian Academy. A few hours later, the maroon and gray lost to Spencer County 13-4 and finished third in the field.

  • Outdoor track seasons start for...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The outdoor track season got started last week for all three Bullitt County programs as they all went in different directions.

    With the way the school schedule falls this week, the opening meets will serve as more a tune-up. The real season will begin when school resumes next Monday.

    This will be a short season for track in Kentucky this year. The state championships have been moved up a week, to May 22-23 because the University of Louisville is hosting an NCAA Regional meet on the traditional weekend for the Kentucky state high school championships.
