  • Spring wild turkey season preview

     FRANKFORT – Spring turkey hunting is slipping into position before daybreak and sitting still as the sun eases over the hills.

    It is breaking the silence with a call and getting a response that sends a shock of excitement down your spine. It is coaxing a love-struck gobbler closer and keeping your wits as it struts into range.

  • BE’s Bowles, Sharpe join Hall of...

     LOUISVILLE – On Jan. 14, Bullitt East baseball head coach Jeff Bowles and associate head coach Craig Sharpe were both inducted into the Kentucky High School Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame.

    The two have worked together for 14 seasons with the Charger program and have accounted for 341 wins against 163 losses.

  • BC will need patience during...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Patience!

    Veteran Bullitt Central softball coach Mike Phillips might as well paint that in block letters on the outfield fence at the school for him, his fellow coaches, the players and the parents for this year’s team.

    While Phillips was well aware that this spring would be a rebuilding one and that the team was going to struggle some, it has just gone from bad to worse since the calendar turned to 2017.

  • BC splits pair of early baseball...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The calendar hasn’t flipped to April yet, the weather is still ‘iffy’ and spring break is still a wonderful dream, but after the first week of the high school baseball season, veteran Bullitt Central head coach G.J. Moore is optimistic about the up side for his Cougars this season.

    Battling cold and windy conditions – yes, normal for Kentucky in March – the Cougars split the first two games of the regular season last week.

  • East pitching allows one run

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Allowing just one run in three games, the Bullitt East Chargers exploded out of the gate to open the 2017 high school baseball season.

  • Eagles hang tough with defending...

     HEBRON ESTATES – It’s early in the season but the North Bullitt Eagles got off to a fast start in the tough weather.

    Entering the second week, North Bullitt took a 3-1 record and looking for better weather.

    In the drizzle, North Bullitt defeated Spencer County 7-4 in the Monday opener.

    Alec Lush and Dylan Kleitz each pitched three innings in the cold. Kleitz picked up the victory.

    In the third inning, Brady Keehn doubled and Blake Benz walked. A.J. Schneider had an RBI single.

  • Region Four archery finals this...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The high school archery season will move into the post-season this weekend as all three local programs will compete in the Region Four event on Friday and Saturday at Moore High School in Louisville.

    Bullitt East is the defending Region Four champion and Bullitt Central was the runner-up a year ago. Both of the teams advanced to the Kentucky State Archery Championships. Bullitt East junior Sydney Marcum is the defending individual champion after shooting a 296 last year (300 is a perfect score).

  • Rolling Hills’ Alexakos signs to...

     HEBRON ESTATES – After playing just one season with the Rolling Hills Baptist Tornados, a small private school in northern Bullitt County, Leo Alexakos nabbed the attention of the coaches at Boyce College in Louisville.

    On Thursday, with Boyce College head coach Blake Rogers looking on, Alexakos signed to play with the Bulldogs starting in the fall.

    At 6-foot-3 and 198 pounds, Alexakos averaged 14 points and 12 rebounds in his one season with the Tornados, a team coached by Greg Hoagland.
