  • East’s Perdue decides to play...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior Hunter Perdue will be the first to say that the recruiting process was not as easy for him as it is for some others.

    After rushing for 1,918 yards on 197 carries as a junior and scoring 22 touchdowns, Perdue was thinking about NCAA Division I programs.

  • BE’s Stallings joins KABC Court...

     Bullitt East Lady Charger head coach Chris Stallings was recently honored with the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches Court of Honor award.

    Stallings was presented the honor during the recent Girls’ Sweet Sixteen Tournament at the BB&T Arena in northern Kentucky.

    Besides the award that Stallings got that day, a commemorative brick will be installed in the KHSAA courtyard in recognition of Stallings’ accomplishments.

  • Former local players shining in...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – Two former local athletes have made changing colleges work out over the past year.

    One of those is former Bullitt East basketball standout Tyler Sharpe. After playing one season as a walk-on at the University of Louisville, Sharpe decided last summer to transfer to a spot where he could get a little more playing time.

  • Long day, short week ends with...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It wasn’t exactly the start to the season that anyone dreamed about, but a short week of action finally ended in a long day for the Bullitt East Chargers on Friday.

    Still, despite what was a ‘forgettable’ week on many fronts, the red and gold got a 3-2 victory over East Jessamine in the only game the team could play during the week.

  • BC wins after the snow; North...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – Mother Nature was the winner during what should have been the opening week of the high school softball season.

    Instead, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers never got on the field last week while Bullitt Central and North Bullitt played just once despite having full schedules for the week.

    The lone win was turned in by Bullitt Central on Friday as the maroon and gray traveled to Radcliff and got the best of John Hardin by a 14-12 score.

  • North drops season-opener

     LOUISVILLE – If you’ve been in the game long enough, you might think you’ve seen it all.

    And, then comes something new.

    For North Bullitt baseball coach Brian Wise, that “new” came on Friday when his Eagles visited Holy Cross.

    The home team would score all six of its runs — without the virtue of a hit.

    Holy Cross defeated North Bullitt 6-1 in the season opener for the Eagles.

    “You do this long enough, you see just about everything,” said Wise.

  • NB hosts Kentucky Push-Pull...

     HEBRON ESTATES – North Bullitt was once again the site for the Kentucky State Push/Pull Weightlifting Championships.

    The all-day event had teams from all over the state competing in an event that included both a dead lift (the pull part of the event title) along with a bench press (the push part).

  • Tennis teams get on courts as...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Despite a week that included heavy snow showers, spring sports are quickly approaching the post-season for tennis players.

    Activities on the court have intensified as regional play begins the second week of May.

  • Olympic Advice

     Alexis Love recently made an appearance at North Bullitt High School to speak to PE classes.

    Love is an Athletes for Hope member and also a member of USA track and field.

    During her stop, she gave students some background on herself. She also talked about the importance of staying physically active and eating healthy.

    Besides talking with the students, Alexis participated in some of the fitness activities and answered questions.

  • Bulliit East claims state dance...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON — It’s unusual for a young team to be the best in the state for any sport. It’s even more unusual when no Bullitt County high school has ever won the state title for a dance competition.

    That didn’t stop the Bullitt East Dance Team from becoming the Grand State Champions at the 10th annual Kentucky Dance Coaches Association competition.

    “It’s pretty awesome,” captain Keiley Sewell said.
