  • McCormick taking basketball...

        MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Blaise McCormick, who played four years at Portland Christian in Jefferson County, has signed to play his college basketball at Asbury College in Wilmore, Kentucky.
        McCormick, the son of Theresa and Steve McCormick, lives in Mount Washington, but has always attended private schools in Jefferson County.
        In his four years at Portland Christian, McCormick played under head coach Joe Meredith.

  • Eastside 1,600 relay team...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – A small contingent of local runners from three area middle schools competed last month in the Kentucky Track and Cross-Country Coaches Association State Track Championships at the University of Louisville.
        This was a huge meet with over 100 schools from across the state taking part. Only the top eight finishers in each event scored team points, but still, 51 girls’ teams and 54 boys’ teams ended up scoring at least one point in the event.

  • Both local U-12 baseball teams...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – The first Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken All-Star Tournaments were the U-12 events and both of the Bullitt County teams, the Blue Lick Optimist All-Stars and the Mount Washington All-Stars advanced out of their respective district tournaments and will compete in this week’s West Kentucky State Tournament hosted by the Germantown Youth League.

  • Mt. Washington U-8 Stars nab...

        FERN CREEK-- Not even a one-hour rain delay could keep the Under-8 Mount Washington All-Stars from roaring out of the loser's bracket on Sunday to capture the Kentucky Babe Ruth State Softball title at Fern Creek Park.

  • Back on Target: Archery provides...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Noah Glass never knew this was possible. He never imagined his first time on an airplane would be a trip to Johannesburg, South Africa. He never thought he would become the seventh archer in the nation, and receive the opportunity of a lifetime: a chance to compete for Team USA in the National Archery in the Schools Program All Star Championship on July 9.

  • BC’s Hatfield to Campbellsville

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Campbellsville University archery coach Larry Creason has no trouble finding Bullitt County.

    For the second time this spring, the only coach in that program’s history was in Bullitt County to sign a female archer for his team. This time it was Bullitt Central senior Haley Hatfield.

    Just a few days earlier, Creason was in Mount Washington and inked Bullitt East’s Sierra Waddle.

  • BC’s Whitener to cheer at U of L

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – “Never settle for less.”

    Bullitt Central senior Joanna Whitener says that is her motto and she pushed it to the max recently when she signed to join the University of Louisville All-Girls cheerleading squad, the top team in the country this past season.

    There never really was a decision as Whitener knew exactly what and where she wanted to do her college cheerleading -- when she was four years old.

  • Summer baseball/softball action...

     The Mount Washington Youth League Softball All-Stars will compete this weekend in the Babe Ruth Kentucky State Tournament at Fern Creek. Play will begin on Thursday and run through Sunday.

    The top two teams in each age bracket advance to the Babe Ruth Regional Tournament set for July 13 in Fairfield, Ohio.

  • Summer Youth Sports Camps --...

     The fundamentals of baseball were the main topics recently at Youth Baseball Camps put on by the Bullitt Central and Bullitt East coaching staffs.

    Bullitt Central head coach G.J. Moore had about 30 players at his three day event held at the team’s field.

    Bullitt East assistant coaches Craig Sharpe and Eric Moore ran the Bullitt East camp for roughly 60 players in two sessions at the Total Sports Academy in Mount Washington.

  • Central’s Burns signs to cheer...

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – Cheerleading has always been important for Bullitt Central senior Hannah Burns, so it wasn’t too tough for her when she spent four days trying out for the All-Girls program at Western Kentucky University in May.
        OK, maybe a little tough on the nerves.
        Still, Burns made it through that tough try-out and she was elated when she saw her name posted on the final day of the work-outs in Bowling Green.
