  • Local players seeded as quest...

    LOUISVILLE -- After local squads struggled in the team competition held last week, it is time for tennis players to begin their trek to the state tennis tournament.

    Region Six tennis action begins on Monday. 

    The girls will compete at Petersburg Park, located at Newburg Road and Indian Trail.

    The boys will compete at St. Xavier High School.

    All championships will be played at St. Xavier on Wednesday at 4 p.m.

    Girls’ action

  • NB’s Sizemore signs to play...

     HEBRON ESTATES – Sometimes it is the sport that comes first and the academics follow suit, especially early in the process.

    Other times, high school students have an occupation and career firmly planned out and the sport just follows along for fun.

    It was the latter for North Bullitt senior Tabitha Sizemore. The softball player had long ago decided that she wanted to attend Transylvania University in Lexington to study pre-med with the plans of becoming an anesthesiologist.

  • Roach seeking new programs to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Sometimes at the high school level, coaches and programs just need a change of scenery.

    A different point of view on how things should be done.

    With that in mind, Bullitt Central Lady Cougar head coach Kyle Roach stepped down from his position recently after four seasons at the helm. Roach is not closing the door on coaching again, perhaps even soon, but he felt that a new perspective was needed for all involved.

  • Lee steps down after 11 seasons

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There was really no surprise, but there was a lot of emotion last week when Bullitt Central basketball coach Joe Pat Lee announced that he was stepping down after 11 years at the helm of the program for which he once played.

    Lee had been thinking about making the move much earlier. The decision was actually made for him when he was named a new assistant principal at the school. The Bullitt County Board of Education does not allow principals to be coaches.

  • NB’s Vincent signs with Indiana...

     LOUISVILLE – Having friends in all the right places paid big dividends for North Bullitt senior Chayse Vincent as she found a volleyball home for the next four years at Indiana Tech, a college in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

    Recently, in a ceremony at the Mid-American Sports Academy in Jeffersontown, Vincent made it all official, signing the papers to play for the NAIA program.

  • Tredway heads to Spalding...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Rolling Hills Baptist volleyball program has won a lot of matches over the past four seasons and the talent level drew the attention of some area colleges.

    The Tornados, a school with only 32 students in the top 13 grades in northern Bullitt County, had never had an athlete sign with a college until recently when senior Emily Tredway signed to play at Spalding University in Louisville.

  • East’s Vaughn second at state...

     LEXINGTON – Bullitt East senior Morgan Vaughn finished second on Thursday at the Kentucky State High School Archery Tournament at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

  • NB’s Cannon, BE’s Poppell having...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Again this spring it appears that when it comes to track and field, that the girls’ programs in the county are doing a little better than the boys’ teams.

    Now, with spring break in the rearview mirror, the track and field teams are starting to get in position for the post-season. With all three programs in Class 3-A, Region Three, they will all compete on the same day at the regional level. That big meet will be held on May 21 at St. Xavier starting at 9 a.m.

  • Dolphins swim team meeting on...

     The season for the Dolphins Swim Team, a part of the Summer Fun League, is scheduled to begin early in June. 

    A parent meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 17, at Okolona Christian Church - located at the corner of Preston Highway and Mount Washington Road in Hillview.  Topics for discussion will include swimmer registration and information, required swimsuits, and spiritwear orders.

  • 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.
