  • BE and BC clash at Nelson County...

     BARDSTOWN – Bullitt Central entered the area high school track wars last week as they opened their season at the aptly named Nelson County Icebreaker Meet.

    Bullitt East picked up seven wins in the 17 events and showed that they will be one of the top teams in the area again this season.

  • Wind not blowing at NB leads to...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Maybe for the first time in recent memory the wind was not blowing into the face of the batters at North Bullitt High.

    With no wind, skipper Brian Wise’s team turned into the long-ball Eagles last week.

    Six balls left the yard for North Bullitt. Unfortunately, one also left off the bat of a visiting player.

    Still, entering the third week of play, Wise has to be pleased with his team’s 6-3 record.

  • Chargers have the answers in 9-0...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Holding Bullitt Central to just three hits and snuffing out an early scoring opportunity, the Bullitt East Chargers rolled to a 9-0 victory over their county rivals in cold and windy conditions.

    The clash on Tuesday at Bullitt Central is the only regular season meeting between the two programs scheduled for this season.

  • KHSAA sanctions cornhole...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Earlier this week, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association voted to sanction cornhole as a competitive sport starting with the 2015-2016 school year.

    Kentucky now becomes the first state to join the cornhole bandwagon and other southern states are soon expected to join the cornhole phenomenon.

    Adding cornhole is seen as a move to put the ugly ‘yard darts’ debacle in the rearview mirror for the KHSAA.
