  • 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.

  • Mount Washington Middle School...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON — The city’s two middle schools have recently hit a bulls eye with the creation of archery programs that allow students with all levels of athletic ability to participate.

    Both Eastside Middle and Mount Washington Middle schools recently participated in the regional and state competitions, sponsored by the National Archery in the Schools Program.

    Coaches of both teams said they have been very impressed with how successful their teams have been in short time periods.

    Pool A includes Bullitt East along with Beth Haven, Grant County and Presentation. The opposite pool involves Ballard, Anderson High School from Ohio as well as Fairdale and Franklin County.

  • Tough foes lead to tough losses...

    HEBRON ESTATES - North Bullitt baseball coach Brian Wise has told his team that they will schedule anybody, anywhere, anytime this spring.

    In week one of the 2009 season that meant games against two of the top five teams in the state. While battling teams from that level might pay dividends in the long run, it can cause some growing pains in the short term. That was the case as the Eagles lost to both St. Xavier and Eastern last week.

    Overall, the green and gold were 1-2 before heading to Tennessee this week for a spring break tournament.

  • BC softball blows out Dragons 16...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - With a team that starts just about as many middle school players as it does high school players, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars needed an early season confidence boost.

    The maroon and gray got just that to open the 2009 season on Tuesday when they blew past visiting Doss 16-0. The game last just three innings as Bullitt Central scored 12 times in the first inning and then four more in the bottom of the second. The Lady Cougars did not even bat in the bottom of the third.
