  • Lady Chargers undefeated heading...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Another week, another no-hitter.

    For the third time this season, Bullitt East sophomore Taylor Roby threw a no-hitter as the Lady Chargers rolled past Garfield Heights, a team from Ohio, in a one day doubleheader at Butler County, by a 10-0 score in six innings.

  • Defense continues to haunt...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After the first two weeks of the season, Bullitt Central softball coach Mike Phillips was marveling at how many games his team had played despite some ‘iffy’ weather.

    Well those times are catching up with the maroon and gray as they got to play just one game last week. Over the last two weeks, the team has played just three games heading into spring break.

    On Tuesday, the Lady Cougars did get to play at home, but they came out on the short end of a 6-1 decision to Christian Academy.

  • East takes advantage of early...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore knew that his team needed an almost perfect outing on Wednesday if it expected to compete with Sixth Region rival Bullitt East.

    Unfortunately, it didn’t happen.

    A misplayed fly ball in the first inning led to two early runs and it was all down hill from there as Bullitt East smacked a pair of home runs in rolling to a 12-1 win in five innings.

  • Tiller sees no barriers in...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Shepherdsville Elementary archery team has enjoyed recent success, much of it since Nevaeh Tiller decided to lend a hand.

    The fifth grader recently earned the team’s highest score, 259, to help lead SES to its first-ever archery victory at the St. Gabriel Tournament in Louisville.

    The score matched her older step-brother’s career high mark. And she did it all with one hand…literally!

  • Short week for BE includes no-...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Every softball team has that ‘light’ week on the schedule in which only a handful of games are to be played.

    Combine a ‘light’ week with bad weather and you get what the Bullitt East Lady Chargers ended up with last week -- one game.

    That single game was not a big challenge for one of the state’s top teams as the Lady Chargers stayed undefeated with a 12-0 victory on the road over Atherton. This game did go six innings as Bullitt East did not score the last three runs until the top of that frame.

  • BC softball needs consistency

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – On Tuesday of last week, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars showed a little of what they could be this season as they went on the road and pounded John Hardin 14-0 in five innings.

    Unfortunately, by Friday, the team had reverted back to its sloppy ways as they committed eight errors in a 12-5 loss to Fairdale. Even in this game the maroon and gray were within 5-4 after batting in the top of the fifth inning, but then gave up seven runs over the next two frames.

    It was the second loss this spring to the Lady Bulldogs.

  • Using wooden bats suits North...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- With six games on the slate last week, North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise got an opportunity to see a lot of pitchers take the mound.

    And he also saw his team come away with the title from the Ray Chapman Wooden Bat Classic in Ohio County.

    With just a single game this week prior to its annual trip to the Cal Ripkin Experience in Myrtle Beach, Wise was trying to get another contest.

    The highlight game of the week came on Friday when the Eagles fell 8-2 to Manual, a perennially good team in the Seventh Region.

  • Trinity gets the best of East in...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After an opening week to the season that head coach Jeff Bowles called ‘nearly perfect’, the winds of change blew in the opposite direction last week as the Chargers dropped a pair of games.

    Still, the two losses brought forth different emotions. On Monday, the Chargers dropped a nine-inning, 3-1 decision to traditional state power Trinity.

    Two days later, the loss was more painful as the Chargers did not snap back well, losing a 9-7 decision at Fairdale.

  • BC baseball seeking better...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Despite a lack of hitting, the Bullitt Central baseball team managed to win three of five games last week as strong pitching managed to carry the day.

    Unlike many teams in the area, the Cougars have managed to play a good number of games through the first three weeks of the regular season. As of the weekend, Bullitt Central stood 5-5 overall.

    “We are just hitting the ball terribly,” veteran head coach G.J. Moore said earlier this week. “We didn’t hit it well last year, but it is worse this year.”

  • North Bullitt girls stay perfect...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Local tennis teams dodged raindrops and, more importantly, the spring winds over the past week.

    One of the biggest individual performances came from North Bullitt senior Kess Ballard. 

    On Tuesday, she defeated Presentation Academcy’s Anna Zimlich in three sets, 7-5, 1-6, 1-0 (13-11).

    Last spring, Zimlick was seeded fourth in the Sixth Region tournament.

    Ballard’s victory led a 5-0 sweep by her North Bullitt teammates.
