  • Rolling Hills’ Alexakos signs to...

     HEBRON ESTATES – After playing just one season with the Rolling Hills Baptist Tornados, a small private school in northern Bullitt County, Leo Alexakos nabbed the attention of the coaches at Boyce College in Louisville.

    On Thursday, with Boyce College head coach Blake Rogers looking on, Alexakos signed to play with the Bulldogs starting in the fall.

    At 6-foot-3 and 198 pounds, Alexakos averaged 14 points and 12 rebounds in his one season with the Tornados, a team coached by Greg Hoagland.

  • Lady Eagle tennis team opens...

     LOUISVILLE -- With Mother Nature spoiling two inter-county battles earlier in the week, the North Bullitt girls’ tennis team had a winning opening match on Thursday.

    The Lady Eagles went to Louisville and defeated Mercy Academy 3-2.

    It took a pair of third-set tiebreakers to push Shane Cunningham’s team to the win.

    Junior Shanna Blocker collected the first victory of the day with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Jenna Saultzman.

  • Duvall joins McKinley as winners...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Rarified air.

    That is where the Bullitt East Lady Charger basketball program stands as it now has had a pair of players honored as Kentucky Miss Basketball – Lindsey Duvall this season along with Becky McKinley in 1992.

    No school in the state, since Miss Basketball started in 1976, has more than two such honorees. Marshall County, Sacred Heart and Scott County have also had two players named Miss Basketball.

  • 2017 Kentucky Miss Basketball

      LEXINGTON – It was a surprise of the best kind on Tuesday when Bullitt East senior Lindsey Duvall was announced as the 2017 Kentucky Miss Basketball during a banquet at the Lexington Center.

    Duvall was at the event as it also recognized the top players in each region this season. The Lady Charger senior was the co-Sixth Region Player of the Year along with Butler’s Jaelynn Penn. Following those awards, as voted on by members of the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches, there were two covered awards remaining on the stage.

  • Rolling Hills’ Jensen signs for...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Two years ago, Baylee Jensen took care of two tough decisions by making one decision.

    Looking for a volleyball program to hone her skills, Jensen met up with the Central Kentucky Volleyball Academy in Campbellsville. The program is under the direction of Amy and Stephen Zink who just happen to be the coaches at Campbellsville University.

    After two years of seeing Jensen’s ability up close, Campbellsville was the obvious spot for the 6-foot-3 middle blocker to call home for the next four years.

  • Rolling Hills Christian wins...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was another banner season for the Rolling Hills Christian Tornados volleyball team – literally.

    For the fifth straight season, the program was able to raise a banner as the Kentucky Christian School Athletic Association Class 4-A State Champions. The title came in late February at the State Tournament at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

  • Lady Chargers seeking post-...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Over the past several seasons, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers have been one of the best softball programs in the state – in the regular season.

    Despite that fact, the red and gold have very little to show for it in the post-season.

    Over the past four seasons, Bullitt East has averaged 25 wins a season only to lose in the 24th District Tournament final in each of those seasons. Even more frustrating is the fact that the team has gone 2-4 in Sixth Region play and has not advanced past the semi-finals.

  • North under new management with...

     HEBRON ESTATES – After being an assistant coach the past two seasons at Ballard and two more seasons as an assistant coach at Whitefield Academy, Neal Hornback felt he was ready to become a high school softball head coach.

    He just didn’t know that the school closest to his home would end up being where he landed.

    It was really a whirlwind turn of events that landed Hornback at North Bullitt. Former Lady Eagle head coach Mike Nally did not return to his position. That decision had nothing to do with his work in the program.

  • Area tennis teams ready for...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – While the early March weather is a bit unpredictable, tennis players in the area are back on the courts.

    The regular season begins this week for high school tennis teams with all looking toward regional action in early May.

    Bullitt Central

    Tiffany Gossett will be doing double duty this year as she coaches both the boys and the girls at Bullitt Central.

    On the girls’ side, Gossett will have an experienced squad.

  • Cougars poised to take a big...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Over the past decade or more, when the Bullitt Central baseball program loses a strong ‘core’ group of players who have been the face of the program for several years, it has taken the program some time to get back to that level of play.

    Now, as the Cougars suffered heavy graduation losses last spring, veteran head coach G.J. Moore is looking to remain just as good, if not better, this time around.
