  • All-Star games in many sports...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There will be All-Star games of just about every spectrum you can think of this weekend.

    On Saturday, the annual Kentucky High School Coaches’ Association Junior All-Star game will be played at Bellarmine University’s Knights’ Hall. There will be a pair of Bullitt County players taking part in the two games.

     SALEM, Ind. – Three divisions are set to share the Salem Speedway Fueled by the Hoosier Lottery tracks on Saturday night, June 17th for the fourth annual Midwest 150.  The full night of racing action will feature the super-fast JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour late models and the always exciting Lucas Oil Great American Stocks on the .555-mile high banks.  The Salem Front Wheel Drive Stocks will provide the racing action on the quarter-mile infield oval.

    The night of racing will be topped off with the running of the Midwest 100 for the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour.

  • BE’s Duvall to be with All-Stars...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Lindsey Duvall’s continued issues with her knee this spring will keep the 2017 Kentucky Miss Basketball out of action this weekend as the Kentucky All-Stars take on their counterparts from Indiana.

    Still, on Monday, Bullitt East head coach Chris Stallings said that Duvall would be a part of the team this week in practice and will travel with the team on Saturday to Indianapolis for the first of the two game series. Then on Sunday she will take part in the festivities including getting her recognition for being Miss Basketball.

  • Summer gets a little bit of an...

     SHEPHEDSVILLE – Some people consider summer to be the time between the last day of school and the first day of the following school year.

    Others think of summer as the time between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

    There are even those that think of summer as the official calendar time between June 21 and September 21. I think only weather forecasters fall into that category.

  • Bats go cold for Lady Chargers...

      LOUISVILLE – The date might have been May 31, but the Bullitt East Lady Chargers played more like it was the middle of March last Wednesday in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Softball Tournament at Ulmer Stadium on the University of Louisville campus.

    Bullitt East head coach Ricky Hoffman thought that his team had put a poor start behind them with a strong final two months. However, the red and gold reverted back to old habits in the post-season, making five errors and collecting just one hit in a 6-0 loss to Butler.

  • Lady Chargers leave no doubt in...

     HEBRON ESTATES – After losing in the first-round of the Sixth Region Tournament two of the past three seasons, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers left no doubt on Monday in the tourney opener as they rolled past North Bullitt 17-1.

    This was the first regional level meeting in fast-pitch softball between two Bullitt County teams, but the outcome this time was never in doubt. The Lady Chargers scored three times in the top of the first inning and then scored in six of the seven innings including seven runs in the top of the seventh.

  • Butler next for East on Wednesday

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- After beating North Bullitt on Monday, the road will get a lot tougher for Bullitt East on Wednesday as they will face Butler in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Softbal Tournament at 5:30 p.m. at the University of Louisville’s Ulmer Stadium.

    Butler advanced to the showdown with a 2-1 victory on Monday over defending Sixth Region champion Holy Cross.

  • Eagles come up empty in loss to...

     HEBRON ESTATES – You never want a bad game to be your last game of a season.

    But, thanks to 11 walks and the lack of getting the big hit, the North Bullitt Eagles made a first-round exit in the Region Six baseball tournament on Monday.

    The Eagles fell 14-7 to the  visiting Fern Creek Tigers.

    “It’s tough,” veteran Eagle coach Brian Wise said after the game.

    Falling behind 8-0 after two innings proved too much for the home team to overcome.

  • BC finishes a tough season with...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – While the outcome was the same, it was a totally different Bullitt Central softball team that played in the opener of the 23rd District tournament.

    After suffering a 17-0 loss to North Bullitt, the Lady Cougars fell 6-4 on Tuesday but it was an encouraging way to end the season.

    Still, it was the Lady Eagles who would advance to the championship game on Friday. North Bullitt would repeat as the district champ with a huge 10-3 victory over Southern.

    In the opener, North Bullitt would score two runs in the second inning.

  • Moore knocks out BC in ‘...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Calling it the most frustrating game in his coaching career, Bullitt Central skipper G.J. Moore was left wondering what would have been.

    His Cougars had fought back from a 2-0 deficit only to see the Moore Mustangs win the opener of the District 23 baseball tournament 4-3.

    The second-seeded Mustangs were the home team on Bullitt Central’s field and needed that final at-bat to secure the victory.

    Keagan Gentry opened the Mustang seventh with a single to left field. Patrick Wells laid down a sacrifice bunt.
