  • 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.

  • Regional tourney action starts...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It has happened in both boys’ and girls’ basketball in the past five years, but for the first time in softball, two Bullitt County teams will meet in the opening round of the Sixth Region Tournament.

    That clash will take place on Monday when Bullitt East, coming off its 13-inning marathon 2-0 loss to Mercy, travels across Bells Mill Road to take on North Bullitt at 11 a.m. The Lady Eagles get to be the host school after winning the 23rd District title with a 10-3 victory over Southern.

  • Chargers’ season ends with 5-4...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Baseball really is a game of inches.

    And heartbreak.

    That was the story for the Bullitt East Chargers on Monday as for the first time since 2003, when the program was in the Eighth Region, the team failed to advance out of district play as they were sent to the sidelines with a 5-4 loss to Fern Creek.

    Bullitt East had beaten the Tigers 12-2 in five innings in the regular season meeting back on April 19.

  • North rolls into final with 9-0...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It was exactly what the doctor ordered on Monday in the opener of the 23rd District baseball tournament.

    After a tough week to end the regular season, North Bullitt coach Brian Wise was eager to get the post-season started.

    And he wanted to do it in a way to set up his pitching for the district final and the first round of the Sixth Region tournament on Monday.

    With the 9-0 victory over Southern, Wise was a happy coach.

  • Softball teams peaking at right...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Hot!

    The Bullitt East Lady Chargers ended the regular season on a hot streak, adding three more victories last week to run the team’s winning streak to nine games and 14 of 15 over the final four weeks of the regular season.

    The only thing that could cool off the Lady Chargers was Mother Nature. Bullitt East traveled to northern Kentucky on Saturday to play two games, but after six innings and a 3-1 win over Boone County, a second game against Highlands was called because of the weather.

  • Diamond sports post-season...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The final group of post-season tourneys will start today as both softball and baseball move into district play.

    The good news for local fans is that they won’t have to go out of the county this year for the first week of play.

    Nothing has changed in the format for the two post-season diamond events. The top two teams in each tourney will advance to the Sixth Region tournaments which will be held the following week. As in the past, the district winners will be host teams on Memorial Day and will be playing a district runner-up.

  • BE stuns top-ranked Trinity

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers have lost eight one-run games this season, but the red and gold won a one-run game to remember on Saturday when they defeated the Trinity Shamrocks, the state’s top-ranked baseball team by a 5-4 count.

    Bullitt East trailed in the highlight game of the Valu-Market Charger Challenge 4-1 before scoring three times in the bottom of the sixth to tie the game before pushing across a run in the bottom of the seventh for the win.

  • North has uneven week against...

     HEBRON ESTATES – With a week of “scrimmages” left to play, North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise is feeling pretty good about his team.

    The Eagles needed a “better” week coming off a “bad” week to get ready for the May 22 District 23 opener against Southern.

    Wise got what he wanted. The Eagles finished the week 2-2; but, more importantly, he liked what he saw on the field.

    On Monday, the Eagles traveled to Oldham County and lost 13-7.
