  • The Boys of Summer

    Baseballs were everywhere last week at the Mount Washington Youth Baseball and Softball facility as the annual Bullitt East Charger Baseball Camp took place with over 100 players taking part.

    There was plenty of base running, throwing, catching and hitting over three days as Bullitt East coaches and players past and present worked with the younger players on fundamentals.

    On the last day of the camp, games were played in different age groups.

  • Bullitt East's Stevens...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Bullitt East junior track standout Jackie Stevens was recently named the Class AA Female Track Athlete of the Year by the Kentucky Track and Cross-Country Coaches Association.

    The KTCCCA award is amazing for Stevens given the fact that she just completed only her second year in the sport. In May, she won both the girls' discus and the shot put to become the first Bullitt East state track champion in 21 years.

    Stevens is the first Bullitt County track athlete to earn the Athlete of the Year recognition.

  • Baseball All-Stars this week; BE...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - A week after being rained out, the Sixth/Seventh Baseball All-Star games are being played this week.

    Originally, the juniors were playing on Monday night while the seniors were going to play a doubleheader on Tuesday. Neither one of those nights were dry enough last week.

    Now, the juniors played last night at Pleasure Ridge Park High School while the seniors will play tonight at Panther Field.

    All three Bullitt County baseball programs were represented in the games.

  • A real Bullitt Central flavor...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - With the hiring of Amber Courtney as the new girls’ basketball coach at North Bullitt, the sport takes on a distinctly Bullitt Central feel.

    Of the six girls’ and boys’ basketball coaches at the three Bullitt County high schools, five played and are graduates of Bullitt Central. The lone exception at this point is Bullitt East boys’ coach Troy Barr who graduated from the school where he now coaches.

  • Courtney takes over Lady Eagle...

    HEBRON ESTATES - A dream born when she first started playing basketball has become a reality for Amber Courtney.

    Just a few weeks after long-time North Bullitt girls’ basketball coach Bill Robinette stepped down, Courtney was give the reigns to the Lady Eagles recently, getting her first head coaching position at the age of 26.

  • First in state tennis tourney

    Bullitt East sophomore Makeala Knight played in her first Kentucky State Tennis Tournament last Thursday at the University of Kentucky.

    It was a good learning experience as Knight defeated Zunilda Lynch of Onieda Baptist Institute 6-2, 6-0 in the first round before losing to Anne Marie Lyon of Lexington Christian 6-0, 6-0 in the second round.

  • Baseball coaches have the...

    LEXINGTON - Like most of us, baseball coaches don’t have the ability to change the past.

    Hindsight might be 20/20, but picking a pitching rotation is part of the real world.

    No matter which way a coach goes, he will always wonder if the road not taken had better scenery. Meet up with one die-hard fan a day later and the coach will be told about the wonderment of the option he failed to take.

  • 11th Annual Kentuckiana Klash at...

    BARDSTOWN - After being rained out for the first time in 2009 on July 4, Bluegrass Speedway track promoters David and Anita Ferrell will present another evening of “Saturday Night Showtime” and it will be another Super Late Model special as the O’Reilly Battle of the Bluegrass DirtCar Series Super Late Models visit for the fourth time this season for the 11th Annual Kentuckiana Klash, paying $5,000 to win.

  • BE's Alphin, Bowles earn...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The honors keep rolling in for Bullitt East baseball standouts Brandon Alphin and Matt Bowles.

    On Tuesday of this week, it was learned that both of the juniors had been named First Team All-State by the Kentucky Baseball Coaches’ Association. There were 18 players named to the first team and an equal number on the second team.

    It has been quite a few years since any local players have earned All-State baseball recognition.

  • Williams set for retirement...

    HEBRON ESTATES - After nine years at the helm, Rob Williams will step down on Friday as North Bullitt’s athletic director.
