  • Bluegrass Speedway Hosts Jerry...

    BARDSTOWN - After being closed last weekend, Bluegrass Speedway track promoters David and Anita Ferrell will return with “Saturday Night Showtime” on Saturday August 15 with a first-time event for the newly formed National All Star Racing Association, headed by legendary chassis builder C.J. Rayburn.  The event will be the Jerry Ross Memorial and will feature the NASRA Late Models in a 30 lap, $3,000 to win event.           

     

  • Blue Lick 12 falls few plays shy...

    OKOLONA - Different place. Same result.

    The Blue Lick 12 All-Stars came up a few plays short for a second consecutive tournament in falling to Prairie Village on Monday evening.

    After losing in the finals of the district tournament, Blue Lick fell to Prairie Village twice on Monday in the state tournament.

    While Prairie Village is guaranteed a spot in the Ohio Valley Regional tournament in Lexington this weekend, there is still a chance that Blue Lick will receive a wild card berth.

  • One inning of offense not enough...

    BOWLING GREEN - Manager Scott Belt was confident that the bats of his Blue Lick 15-year-old All-Stars would come alive in the state baseball tournament.

    And, for one inning, they did. Unfortunately, the offense didn’t make the trip to Bowling Green and the local team finished with a 2-2 record.

    In the opener, Blake Hardy pitched a complete game and Blue Lick won 4-0.

    However, they did it without getting a hit off Warren County pitchers.

    Combining errors and walks, Blue Lick advanced to a second round encounter against Henderson County.

  • Victor Lee Victorious in 11th...

    BARDSTOWN - The O’Reilly Battle of the Bluegrass DirtCar Series presented by Graphic Impressions was in action on Saturday evening at Bluegrass Speedway for the 11th Annual Bluegrass 50 and Victor Lee of Stanford, KY would nip Terry English coming off turn four to the checkered flag to capture the $5,000 payday. Other feature winners included Pat Hagan of New Haven, KY in WBRT 1320-AM Sportsman and Jason Wheatley of Loretto, KY in Modifieds.

  • Blue Lick 13 All-Stars finish 1-...

    OKOLONA - It was a tough night all the way around for the Blue Lick 13-year-old All-Stars.

    With the first game running long, Blue Lick and Prairie Village had to wait around an hour past the original 8 p.m. start time. And then they had to move from one field to another.

    And at the end of the evening, there was even a little bad blood between the teams.

    Prairie Village broke the game open with seven runs in the second inning en route to a 12-1 five-inning victory.

    The victors did have 10 hits but also capitalized on five Blue Lick errors and four walks.

  • Dolphins overcome early...

    HILLVIEW - A common word in the sports world is ‘rebuilding.’

    For the Bullitt County Dolphins, the 2009 summer swim season will best be known for the word ‘relocating.’

  • Could the Sixth Region soon be...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Let the rumors begin!

    Earlier this summer, the grapevine was ripe with news that the Kentucky High School Athletic Association was beginning the process of realigning the state’s 16 regions for girls’ and boys’ basketball, baseball and softball.

    The KHSAA did the same thing about six years ago and that led to Bullitt County’s move from the Eighth Region to the Sixth Region. That has been the law of the land for the past four years.

  • Eastside Edge Camp

    There was plenty of basketball to be played last week at the annual Eastside Edge Hoops Camp.

    The morning and afternoon sessions attracted nearly 100 young players.

    The camp was conducted by Eastside coaches Josh Meredith and Brian Smith.

  • Defense, pitching keeps Blue...

    HILLVIEW - The bats may not have been ringing as well as manager Scott Belt would have liked but defense and pitching carried the Blue Lick 15 All-Stars to the District 13 championship.

    The team will advance to state tournament play Wednesday at 8 p.m. in Bowling Green.

    “The defense and pitching carried us,” Belt said after being showered with water during the victory celebration.

    Many of the players advanced to last year’s 14-year-old state tournament as a district runner-up. This time, they will go as district champs.

  • Kentucky Basketball Coaches...

    LOUISVILLE - A trio of local players, Bullitt East’s Kayla Thacker, Bullitt Central’s Qualeatha Bennett and Bullitt East’s Shelby Romine combined with Bullitt Central head coach Bryan Bates to lead the West team to a 71-41 victory on Saturday night in the Kentucky High School Coaches’ Association East-West All-Star Game at Bellarmine University.
