  • Chargers red-hot heading back...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Just play five.

    That was the fun saying that Bullitt East head coach Jeff Bowles and his team came up with last week as they mowed through opponents in sunny Florida.

    There was a loss for the Chargers early in the trip, but the Chargers annual spring break trip to the Disney Wide World of Sports Complex was very successful as the red and gold returned home with a 4-1 mark with three straight wins to end the trip.

    Those last three wins all ended after five innings because of the high school ‘mercy’ rule.

  • Baseball and softball ready for...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – With spring break in the rearview mirror, the high school baseball and softball seasons can focus on what is most important -- the play between the foul lines.

    That is not a knock of the action during the first three weeks of the season. It is just an indictment of how coaches break down the season.

  • Shep. pool unlikely to open this...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- While nothing is official, if you liked to take a swim in the pool next to Bullitt Central High School this summer, you might start looking for other options.

    Without a blessing from state inspectors to open the pool while repairs are being done, Bullitt County YMCA executive director June Daugherty said the chances of opening the main pool are very doubtful.

  • 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.
