  • 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.

  • Softball teams peaking at right...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Hot!

    The Bullitt East Lady Chargers ended the regular season on a hot streak, adding three more victories last week to run the team’s winning streak to nine games and 14 of 15 over the final four weeks of the regular season.

    The only thing that could cool off the Lady Chargers was Mother Nature. Bullitt East traveled to northern Kentucky on Saturday to play two games, but after six innings and a 3-1 win over Boone County, a second game against Highlands was called because of the weather.

  • BE’s Peak signs with NAIA...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior Alyssa Peak was determined that she was not going to make a rush decision about a college during the season.

    That plan worked out to perfection as she would have made a completely different decision during the season.

    As it turned out, Peak didn’t really get any attention from the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, Kentucky until after the end of the season in March. Up until that point, Peak was getting most of the attention from Centre and Indiana University-Southeast.

  • Cougars finish 10th at archery...

     LOUISVILLE – Competing last weekend at the NASP Nationals in Louisville, the number one Bullitt Central team finished tenth overall out of 248 teams.

    Coach Dustin Metcalf’s squad finished with a score of 3,411, slightly off the team’s best mark of the season at 3,416. That score came in winning the KHSAA Region 4 title back in March.

  • Diamond sports post-season...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The final group of post-season tourneys will start today as both softball and baseball move into district play.

    The good news for local fans is that they won’t have to go out of the county this year for the first week of play.

    Nothing has changed in the format for the two post-season diamond events. The top two teams in each tourney will advance to the Sixth Region tournaments which will be held the following week. As in the past, the district winners will be host teams on Memorial Day and will be playing a district runner-up.

  • BE stuns top-ranked Trinity

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers have lost eight one-run games this season, but the red and gold won a one-run game to remember on Saturday when they defeated the Trinity Shamrocks, the state’s top-ranked baseball team by a 5-4 count.

    Bullitt East trailed in the highlight game of the Valu-Market Charger Challenge 4-1 before scoring three times in the bottom of the sixth to tie the game before pushing across a run in the bottom of the seventh for the win.

  • North has uneven week against...

     HEBRON ESTATES – With a week of “scrimmages” left to play, North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise is feeling pretty good about his team.

    The Eagles needed a “better” week coming off a “bad” week to get ready for the May 22 District 23 opener against Southern.

    Wise got what he wanted. The Eagles finished the week 2-2; but, more importantly, he liked what he saw on the field.

    On Monday, the Eagles traveled to Oldham County and lost 13-7.

  • Confidence continues to multiply...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Since losing to defending state champion Scott County 2-1 on April 14 and falling to just 7-7 overall, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers have been on fire.

    Adding three more victories to the tally last week, coach Ricky Hoffman’s team has won ten of its last 11 games heading into the final week of the regular season. The team is now 17-8 overall with four games on the slate this week.

  • East girls finish fourth in...

      LOUISVILLE – One thing that the local track teams figured out quite quickly as part of Class 3-A, Region 3, is the simple fact that they are competing against some of the top track and field athletes in the state.

    After Male, St. Xavier, Manual and Central carve up a lot of the points, there is not always a lot left for the other teams. That also includes earning the automatic qualifying spots by finishing first or second.
