  • Eagles sweep 23rd District...

    HEBRON ESTATES -- During his first three years at the helm, Mike Nally has been known to do a few unorthodox things as manager of the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.
        As the program has regained some of its past success, Nally said he sees the difference.
        Using the regular season to build to the post-season, North Bullitt defeated top-seeded Southern 5-0 Wednesday to capture the 23rd District softball title.

  • Three tough draws for local...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE-- Everybody looks at tournament draws and sees different things.
        Some see the first-round opponent while others see how tough winning three straight games might be.
        In the one-game view, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles got the draw of a lifetime when they were paired up with Iroquois, a team that played just 12 games this season and won just three. One of the wins came in the opening game of the 22nd District Tournament when they smoked Doss 24-8. The Lady Raiders then lost 16-0 to Butler in the district final.

  • J-Town rallies past East

    JEFFERSONTOWN-- For the first time in a dozen years, a team had all the answers for Bullitt East in the championship game of a district tournament.
        Jeffersontown, answering Bullitt East scoring with runs in the bottom of each of the first two innings, pulled away late to win the 24th District title on Wednesday with a 7-4 victory, snapping the Chargers' run of 11 straight district titles over three different alignments.

  • East finishes with strong 4-1...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It wasn’t a perfect week, but the Bullitt East Chargers closed out the 2015 baseball regular season with a strong week as the red and gold won four of the final five games including the last three in a row.

    Bullitt East will now head into this week’s 24th District Tournament with a 21-14 record. The Chargers played Fern Creek on Tuesday and with a victory will move into Wednesday’s championship game against Jeffersontown at 6 p.m. at Jeffersontown.

  • NB gains ‘mo’ with perfect...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- If North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise had the opportunity to write the script for the final week of the regular season, it couldn’t have been much better than what actually happened.

    Coming off the only week this season where the bats were a little weak, North Bullitt completed a 25-11 regular slate with four straight victories over quality opponents.

    Besides the bats coming alive once again, Wise was able to give catcher Chance Egnor and centerfielder Daulton Walls a little time off to mend some slight injuries.

  • BC struggles into post-season

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – There was some good news off the field for the Bullitt Central Cougars last week, but that didn’t translate into the team’s final three games of the regular season as the maroon and gray dropped each contest.

    That action left Bullitt Central with a 9-20 mark heading into this week’s 23rd District Tournament at North Bullitt. The Cougars were scheduled to play Southern in a semi-final game on Tuesday.

  • Large local contingent headed to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After waiting a week for the final word, a large local contingent of Bullitt County athletes will make the trip to Lexington on Saturday for the Class AAA Kentucky State Track and Field Championships being held at the University of Kentucky.

    There are actually 36 athletes on the scoring sheets who could be in action on Saturday with five of the six area boys’ and girls’ programs having at least one entry. That number is a little misleading as coaches were allowed to put up to eight names in each of the relays.

  • District diamond play starts...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE--The post-season for Bullitt County baseball and softball teams will start this week with 23rd District Tournament play at North Bullitt and 24th District action at Jeffersontown High School.
        Play will actually start on Monday in all four events, but the only local team set to take the field on that day will be the North Bullitt baseball team as they will take on Moore in the 23rd District.

  • North's Akin taking...

    HEBRON ESTATES-- North Bullitt senior football player T.J. Akin knew just where he wanted to attend college and after some financial details were worked out, Akin recently made it all official, signing to play the next four years at Hanover College in southern Indiana.
        "I've always wanted to go to Hanover," the senior lineman said after a small ceremony in the North Bullitt lobby with family and coaches present. "It was just the money that kept me from committing. They came up with some more and that is when I committed."

  • BE's Staples goes 1-1 at...

    LEXINGTON -- Bullitt East junior tennis standout Jacob Staples didn't get a chance to face defending state champion Brandon Lancaster of St. Xavier in the recent Sixth Region Tournament.
        Unfortunately, Staples got to see Lancaster up close and personnel on Thursday in the second round of the Kentucky State Tennis Championships in Lexington. The result was as expected as Lancaster defeated Staples 6-0, 6-0 en route to defending his state title.
