  • 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.

  • Staples making bid for even...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Jacob Staples’ quest to return to the state tennis tournament may have gotten a boost last week.

    Bullitt East lost 4-1 to Manual but Staples recorded a quality victory.

    The senior defeated Luke Sheridan-Rabideau 2-6, 7-5, 1-0 (13-11).

    Sheridan-Rabideau was the fifth seed in the Sixth Region tennis tournament a year ago.

    Bullitt East coach Dustin Armstrong said that once Staples began to go after his opponent’s backhand, things turned in the Chargers’ favor.

  • BE’s Hinkley looking to fill...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – Sometimes it is darkest before the dawn when it comes to college athletic recruiting.

    Just ask Bullitt East senior Kameron Hinkley.

    Since the end of his high school season, Hinkley had been hoping to catch on with Lindsey Wilson University. As with any recruiting for sports, there was some give and take, but in the end, Lindsey Wilson was waiting for other players to make decisions before they went all in on Hinkley.

    As it turned out, the other players came through and Lindsey Wilson could not offer anything to Hinkley.

  • BC’s Taylor signs to join St....

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There is nothing wrong with being aggressive when it comes to the recruiting game.

    Bullitt Central senior Dallas Taylor did just that recently when she got the ball rolling, so to speak, when she contacted St. Catharine bowling coach Larry Luvisi about joining his program.

    Luvisi was impressed and answered the email. That was all it took and recently Taylor made it all official, signing the papers to attend St. Catharine in a ceremony at Bullitt Central in front of her teammates, coaches and family.

  • Downey, Sharpe tabbed for more...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Good basketball news keeps rolling in even if the season is already past.

    Downey to Play in Ohio-Kentucky Game

    North Bullitt senior Katie Downey, the Sixth Region Player of the Year, last week was invited to play in the 25th annual Ohio-Kentucky All-Star Basketball series. This year’s two games will be played at Thomas More College in Crestview Hills, Kentucky on Saturday night.

    The girls’ game is set for 5:30 p.m. with the boys’ game to follow at 7:30 p.m.

  • 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.
