  • Regional tourney action starts...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It has happened in both boys’ and girls’ basketball in the past five years, but for the first time in softball, two Bullitt County teams will meet in the opening round of the Sixth Region Tournament.

    That clash will take place on Monday when Bullitt East, coming off its 13-inning marathon 2-0 loss to Mercy, travels across Bells Mill Road to take on North Bullitt at 11 a.m. The Lady Eagles get to be the host school after winning the 23rd District title with a 10-3 victory over Southern.

  • Another classic, but Mercy beats...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – We should have expected no less.

    It was another classic on Friday night as it took 13 innings before the Mercy Jaguars pushed across a pair of runs to beat Bullitt East in the championship game of the 24th District Softball Tournament.

    The 2-0 score was the same as last years district final when the Lady Chargers lost to Fern Creek.

  • Eagles roll early and then...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – He’s not a playwright. And he’s not a psychic.

    However, North Bullitt veteran baseball coach Brian Wise crafted out two pretty planned games to capture the school’s fifth consecutive District 23 title.

    The 12-7 victory over Moore on Friday will allow North Bullitt to host the Sixth Region opener on Monday morning. Play then advances to Jim Patterson Stadium on the University of Louisville campus.

    Delayed by rain for two days may have helped the Eagles.

  • Lady Eagles rally past short-...

     LOUISVILLE – After three days of weather delays, packing up and traveling 15 miles to play on your opponent’s home field in a district championship game didn’t seem to phase the North Bullitt Lady Eagles one bit.

    Finally getting to play on Friday on Southern’s home field for the 23rd District title, coach Neal Hornback’s team spotted the Lady Trojans an early run and then scored eight runs over four innings en route to a 10-3 victory.

  • Roby archery team targeted for...

     A season of firsts has Roby Elementary School archers aiming high.

    “We could not be happier,” said Archery Coach Alisha Bodner. “My archers have been super dedicated this season and practice at least four days a week.”

    Roby’s archery team has competed in 13 tournaments this school year including Regionals, State and Nationals (where they placed 111 out of 180 teams).

  • Former MW martial arts...

     BARDSTOWN -- The story began when three veterans, after serving in Korea, opened the first Tae Kwon Do school in the Kentuckiana area in Jeffersonville. 

    Dennis Wiley had been a sickly, asthmatic kid whose doctor had recommended him taking martial arts because of the benefits the breathing exercises would provide. Forty-nine years later, Master Dennis Wiley of Y-Lee’s School of Martial Arts was recognized by the EMAC, a national martial arts association, with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

  • Lady Lion success

     The Little Flock Lady Lions had an outstanding season. The team won the Our Savior Lutheran School’s 26th annual Roundball Classic and finished second in the St. Francis tournament.

    Kayli Smith scored her 1,000 point during her last game for Little Flock.

  • Chargers’ season ends with 5-4...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Baseball really is a game of inches.

    And heartbreak.

    That was the story for the Bullitt East Chargers on Monday as for the first time since 2003, when the program was in the Eighth Region, the team failed to advance out of district play as they were sent to the sidelines with a 5-4 loss to Fern Creek.

    Bullitt East had beaten the Tigers 12-2 in five innings in the regular season meeting back on April 19.

  • North rolls into final with 9-0...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It was exactly what the doctor ordered on Monday in the opener of the 23rd District baseball tournament.

    After a tough week to end the regular season, North Bullitt coach Brian Wise was eager to get the post-season started.

    And he wanted to do it in a way to set up his pitching for the district final and the first round of the Sixth Region tournament on Monday.

    With the 9-0 victory over Southern, Wise was a happy coach.

  • BE’s Masden third in girls’ 800-...

     LEXINGTON – The game plan was solid and the execution flawless, but it still wasn’t enough on Saturday for Bullitt East senior Lauren Masden to ‘steal’ a victory in the girls’ 800-meter run at the KHSAA Kentucky State Track and Field Championships at the University of Kentucky.
