  • Eagles rally from early 5-0 hole...

       HEBRON ESTATES -- A 5-1 deficit after the first inning showed that North Bullitt had a little bit of a hangover from facing Bullitt East three days earlier, but the Eagles kept their composure, rallied, and beat 23rd District rival Bullitt Central 7-6 on Tuesday of last week.

    North Bullitt scored four times in the top of the third inning and then went ahead with another run in the fourth. Bullitt Central kept it close, tying the game at 6-6 in the sixth.

  • Down early, Lady Cougars rally...

     HEBRON ESTATES – Two months ago, Bullitt Central softball coach Mike Phillips was frustrated this his team was letting mistakes snowball into more and more mistakes before the team was in such a hole that they mentally gave up.

  • Again it is 1-0 as Bullitt East...

     LOUISVILLE – Bullitt East vs. Mercy ranks as one of the top softball rivalries in the area, if not the closest.

  • East drops first game, but ready...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Nobody expected the Bullitt East Lady Chargers to go undefeated this season.

    Plus, being up 6-0 midway through the fifth inning on Wednesday, nobody thought that the red and gold, ranked fifth in the state, would lose.

    But the team did lose on Wednesday, falling 8-7 at Martha Layne Collins. So, when the second point came true, the first one was out the window as the Lady Chargers lost for the first time after 16 straight wins to open the season.
