  • Lady Cougars drop first two

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Getting on a field was job one last week…any field.

    The Bullitt Central Lady Cougars did get that accomplished last week, playing softball on real dirt and grass for the first time since practice started back on Feb. 15.

    Perhaps even better news was that after playing two games early last week, the team got some time off for practice. For a young and inexperienced team, that might have been the most important part of the season.

  • Central starts fast, but has to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The start of games went pretty well for the Bullitt Central Cougars in the first week of the high school baseball season, but the maroon and gray could not find a way to carry that over to the end of games.

    As such, the Cougars went 1-4 to open the season. In three of the losses, Bullitt Central was either ahead or tied going into the sixth inning.

  • Kromenacker’s walk-off homer...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Living a dream.

    That was the situation for Bullitt East junior Derrick Kromenacker last Monday. In his very first varsity start for the Chargers, he belted a walk-off home run as the red and gold defeated DeSales 3-2.

    That win started an opening week for coach Jeff Bowles’ team that ended with a 3-2 record.

    “For not being outside, it was a pretty good start,” Bowles said over the weekend. We pitched it pretty well.”

  • First week on a field goes well...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Take away a wind-blown home run and the North Bullitt Eagles would have had a near perfect week on the baseball diamond.

    As it turned out, head coach Brian Wise was still very pleased with his team’s first week of play -- which also turned out to be its first time on the field due to inclement spring weather.

    The Eagles, the defending Sixth Region champs, got the season off to a 4-2 start, which pleased Wise.

  • Tennis teams get on the courts...

    HEBRON ESTATES -- About the only sports which have gotten much practice time this year has been those who play on asphalt.
        Over the first two weeks of play, the results have been mixed.
        NORTH BULLITT
        North Bullitt's tennis teams opened the season on Thursday with a trip to eastern Jefferson County to face St. Francis.
        On the girls' side, coach Shane Cunningham's team came back with a 3-2 victory.

  • BC girls just looking for some...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE-- Bullitt Central softball coach Mike Phillips can't predict how the upcoming season will turn out, but he is certain of one thing Ð his second season at the helm can't be nearly as trying as the first year.
        The 2014 softball season for the Lady Cougars was one that just about everyone associated with the program would just as soon forget. On a team that had just two seniors, four starters missed considerable playing time with injuries including the two seniors who were the team's starting pitcher and catcher.

  • NB softball is in the middle of...

    HEBRON ESTATES-- Youth will be served this spring for the North Bullitt Lady Eagle softball program.

        Entering his third season as the head coach, Mike Nally has just three seniors. The numbers don't get much better further down as the green and gold have just two juniors and three sophomores.

        More than half of the varsity roster is made up of freshmen and middle schoolers, some of whom will be continued on to make significant contributions.

  • Lady Chargers long on pitching,...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- There is one very distinct way for a high school softball coach to figure out how strong his team will be for the upcoming season.
        If opposing coaches quickly return your phone calls or emails concerning scheduling a game, you might have some work ahead of you. If coaches donÕt answer, then you know that you have a pretty good team.

  • After 18 seasons Newton steps...

    HEBRON ESTATES -- During the big snow a few weeks ago, North Bullitt football coach Brett Newton found himself with some extra time to review his retirement plan as a teacher in the Kentucky Public School System.
        What Newton discovered surprised even himself. He could actually retire at the end of this school term and have basically the same income as if he were still teaching. Newton had assumed that he still had a few years to go.

  • Pitching will have to carry BC...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Bullitt Central Cougars were set to start the high school baseball season on Tuesday of this week with a game at Bardstown.

    There is just one little problem with that. The Cougars have not been on a regular playing field yet this season.

    If high school games are ever played on an asphalt parking lot or in a school gym, then the Cougars would be ready to go. Unfortunately, grass and dirt are foreign to the players at this point in the campaign.
