  • BC softball still seeking

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - After snapping a short losing streak on Wednesday with an 11-0 victory over Bardstown, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars ran into more trouble over spring break as they headed into southcentral Kentucky for a series of games.

        The good news was that the maroon and gray regained the services of sophomore pitcher Seaera Minyard who has missed the previous week with stiffness in her arm. She worked each of the Lady Cougars’ games last week.

  • Finally - Home Sweet Home for BC...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Finally.

        After two years, some missteps, a lot of gnashed teeth and a truckload of frustration, it appears that the Bullitt Central baseball program finally has a place to call home. A pretty nice place at that.

        It was two years ago that the Cougars hit the road when their former home behind Roby Elementary was razed for construction on the new Roby Elementary. Bullitt Central had been playing baseball on that field since the school was formed in 1970.

  • Court wants to revive parks board

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Whether a partnership between the Bullitt Fiscal Court and the YMCA Bullitt County branch materializes with the parks and recreation department still hasn’t been decided.

        However, it appears there will be a revitalized county parks board, which hasn’t met in several years.

        After hearing comments at its second night-time forum on the partnership proposal, fiscal court members seemed poised to make sure the five-member board reformed in some shape and form.

  • Central learning on the run in...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central’s young softball team saw mixed results in the first week of the regular season, finishing 1-3 against some strong opposition.

        The only game during the week was a 5-3 setback to Sacred Heart. After a rain-out on Thursday to Pleasure Ridge Park, the Lady Cougars headed to Brandenburg for a tournament at Meade County High School.

  • Lady Chargers open with a 4-2...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - With a new coach and a number of new players, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers were anxious to get on the field and see what they could do against outside competition.

        Week one saw about what new head coach Ricky Hoffman expected as Bullitt East went 1-1, beating Spencer County 4-2 to open the season and then falling to Nelson County 5-0 on Saturday.

  • Efforts underway to revive...

        BROOKS - Baseball’s Back In Brooks!

        David and Yvonda Arnold are tackling a new project for the Brooks community and they need your help.

        On Brooks Hill Road there is a baseball park that has been around for generations and seen its fair share of kids from the Brooks community and miles around grow up to become parents of their own little baseball and t-ball players.

        David and his father both grew up playing at the park and were sad to see it fall apart over the years.

  • Stevens, Milburn dominate...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Winning all five of the field events, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers got the outdoor track season off to a grand start on Tuesday as they beat 13 other teams to win an All-Comers Meet held at Shelby County High School.

        Coach Lenny Raley’s team doesn’t have a lot of depth, but they have some strong individuals including defending state champion Jackie Stevens. The senior won both the shot put and discus.

  • Butler was a tough first foe for...

        HEBRON ESTATES - Big games during the first week of the regular season seldom turn out as expected and even more so end up not having any bearing on what can happen when the post-season rolls around ten weeks later.

        That will hopefully be the case for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles as they opened the 2010 season with a 7-2 loss to Butler. A year ago, the two teams played a 1-0 game that Butler won in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament.

  • Week one was a learning...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Nobody expected the Bullitt East Chargers to pick up exactly where they left off last season, despite being the sixth-ranked team in the state in the pre-season coaches’ poll.

        That was good, because the first week of the season proved to be a challenge for the defending Sixth Region and Semi-State champions as they could only post a 3-3 record. There was some good news in those results and some very frustrating points.

  • County approves bid to get BCHS...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The county swimming pool next to Bullitt Central High School should be ready to go when the season starts in late May.

        Bullitt Fiscal Court, with the assistance of the YMCA of Bullitt County, agreed to a bid of Chester Pools of New Albany, Ind., to bring the facility into federal compliance.

        The project would include the removal of the old diving boards and leveling off of the pool’s bottom. The work would also fix the infiltration system to meet the federal safety standards.
