  • Lady Cougars find ways to win...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- A week earlier, Bullitt Central softball coach Buddy Gallemore was lamenting his team’s inability to win close ball games.

    What a difference a week makes. The Lady Cougars did a much better job of getting the key hit at key times as they won three of five games last week including a 7-5 victory over Southern.

  • Micah's Chester to play for...

    HILLVIEW -- What college basketball coach has won the most national championships and what school does he work for?

    Give up.

    Ron Arnett has won 11 national championships as head coach of the Kentucky Christian University Lady Knights, including the past three National Christian College Athletic Association titles.

    When Rachel Chester of Micah Christian Academy in northern Bullitt County went down to try out for a possible spot on next year’s roster, the coach who has won 78 percent of his games at the Grayson, Ky., university was impressed.

  • Vittitoe takes 'big heart...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- If you ask veteran football coach Dan Leasor the size of senior Jesse Vittitoe, the answer would be “big enough.”

    If you asked Vittitoe, the answer would be the same.

    While there may be football players who are taller and heavier than the Bullitt Central player, there is none with a bigger heart.

    That heart and desire will lead the son of Kathy and Michael Vittitoe, to Illinois College to continue his gridiron career.

  • BE's Smith picks a sport,...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Bullitt East senior Chelsey Smith had some tough questions to answer this spring before she starts college in the fall.

    No, picking a college didn’t turn out to be as difficult as selecting a sport. Smith is participating in three sports during this school year and in two of those, volleyball and basketball, she has been a part of the varsity teams for the past four seasons.

    After weighing all of the options, Smith decided that volleyball was the sport she was best suited to pursue in the future.

  • North reverses earlier loss,...

    HEBRON ESTATES - North Bullitt softball coach Eric Lambert never used the word ‘revenge’ last Thursday before his team took the field against Bullitt East, a team that had beaten the Lady Eagles 5-4 earlier in the season.

    Of course, that’s not to say that some of his players weren’t thinking revenge.

    Whatever the word was that North Bullitt was thinking, it worked to perfection as the green and gold picked up an 8-1 victory.

  • Track's new era starts...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- High school track and field in Kentucky will enter a new era starting this week as the KHSAA has realigned the sport overall as well as revamping the qualifying standards for those reaching and competing at the state championships.

    As with most changes, there is some good and some bad and it will take a little while to get used to things. The growing pains will start on Saturday as track teams across the state to compete in regional meets.

  • NB-Southern to try again...

    HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Eagles will try for a third and final time on Wednesday of this week to play district rival Southern.

    Twice earlier this season the two teams have been rained out. This is the final game left in the regular season between 24th District teams.

    The KHSAA gave all district teams an extension late last week to play intra-district contests because of all the bad weather this spring. The old deadline was on Sunday and it has now been extended to Thursday.

  • 8th Region tennis starts in...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The first spring sport to move into the post-season will be tennis as the Bullitt County programs start Eighth Region play Monday morning in Frankfort.

    This will be the fourth straight season that the local teams have competed in the Eighth Region.

    The boys’ teams will once again play all of their matches on Monday and Tuesday at Franklin County High School. The girls’ will play their opening rounds at Western Hills High School. Action on Monday will start at 9:30 a.m. with matches all day. Play on Tuesday will resume at 4:30 p.m.

  • Lady Chargers' Knight heads...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Bullitt East’s McKaela Knight will be looking to secure a high seed when the sophomore and her Lady Charger teammates head to South Oldham on Monday in one of the final tune-ups for the upcoming regional tournament.

    A year ago, Knight was seeded fourth in the regional tournament, a spot behind teammate Tabitha Collins. Unfortunately, some youthful jitters got her early in the tourney and she was sent to the sidelines by a player that she had beaten during the regular season.

  • 2009 Girls' Kentucky State...

    HEBRON ESTATES - Turning the tables on teams that they had lost to during the regular season, including two-time defending state champion Pleasure Ridge Park, the North Bullitt girls’ bowling program brought home its first state championship last Saturday.

    It was a long and productive day for the team as they competed at King Pin Lanes in Louisville. It took five hours before the Lady Eagles defeated Sacred Heart 3-0 in Baker games in the championship showdown.
