  • Two Ha(i)leys will be Lady...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After being an assistant coach at Bullitt Central for the previous 12 years, Mike Phillips will get a chance to coach the softball from the top spot this spring.

    Phillips moves over one spot on the bench to replace Buddy Gallemore who resigned after last season to work on an advanced college degree and who has since become an assistant coach at Midway College. Phillips has mainly been the pitching coach for the Lady Cougars, but now will oversee all aspects of the program.

  • Lady Eagles are young but are...

     HEBRON ESTATES – A year ago, the North Bullitt softball team made big strides during the season under first-year head coach Mike Nally.

    From being 3-25 in 2012, Nally and the Lady Eagles finished 9-15 last season. Even more impressive, the team picked up six of those wins in the month of May. The end didn’t come until the team lost a 2-1 decision to Southern in the first-round of the 23rd District Tournament on the Lady Trojans home field. That Southern team went on to reach the Sixth Region semi-finals.

  • High expectations won't bog...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – High expectations are nothing new for the Bullitt East Chargers when it comes to the baseball program.

         Long one of the best programs in the state, the Chargers are looking to wrestle the Sixth Region title away from defending state champion Pleasure Ridge Park this spring. A year ago, the Panthers beat Bullitt East 5-1 in the semi-finals of the regional event.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Over the next three months, the Bullitt Central Cougar baseball team needs to learn a lot about itself after suffering heavy graduation losses from a year ago.

  • Strong pitching will fuel Eagles...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- The North Bullitt Eagle baseball team had a terrific run last season, advancing to the Sixth Region tournament.

     SHIVLEY – ‘Proud to be from Bullitt County.’

    That was the first thought that ran through my head as I exited Valley High School on Friday night after watching one of the greatest nights of high school basketball that I’ve had the pleasure of working over the past 37 years as your Sports Editor.

     LOUISVILLE - Several local runners did well in the Rodes City Run 10K.

    The 6.2-mile event - the second in the Triple Crown series - saw several local runners of all ages finish among the top in their age groups.

    For the youngsters, John Barbagallo of Mount Washington was second in the 14 and under division with a time of 38 minutes, 50 seconds.

    In the 15-19 age group, Michael Montgomery, also of Mount Washington, placed third with a time of 38:41.

  • Board moves on tracks but not...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - It may not be a Cadillac but sometimes a Volkswagen is at least a start.

    The Bullitt County Public School Board gave its OK to move forward with getting the three track surfaces into usable condition - by next year.

    A proposal was made several months ago by Jim Rice of Flynn Brothers Construction.

    This came after a story in The Pioneer News outlined the inability of any of the three high schools to host its own county track meet due to the disrepair of each facility.
