  • Blue Lick’s U-18 team headed...

     CROWN POINT, IND. -- It took a few extra innings but the Blue Lick U-18 All-Stars are headed out west for a second consecutive year.

    The team made up of high school and college players from Bullitt and Jefferson counties swept through to win its second straight Ohio Valley Regional title. Now, the team will make a return trip to Ephrata, Wash., in its quest for the World Series championship.

  • Jones excelled for BE batting in...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – For Bullitt East senior baseball player Zach Jones, being one of four players from the Charger program to be heading to Spalding University in the fall was not any type of master plan.

    In fact, Jones says that if he was the only player making that transition that it would have been just fine also. He would have decided on the Golden Eagles as a solo signee.

  • Riordan ready to continue...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior Jared Riordan might not have the prototypical size for a catcher, but what he lacks in size he more than makes up for in desire as well as experience.

    That made it a no-brainer for the Spalding baseball coaches to take notice of Riordan right off the bat. The Golden Eagles were not looking for high school catchers to turn into position players. They wanted a full-time catcher and Riordan fit the bill.

  • BE’s Henn signs to play for...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – As a freshman, Bullitt East basketball standout Kirstie Henn recalled sitting down with Lady Charger head coach Chris Stallings and telling him then that she wanted to play college basketball.

    That dream came to reality this spring when the senior signed to play at the next level for NCAA Division II Kentucky Wesleyan located in Owensboro.

  • A few news and notes as we head...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – As hard as it might be for some of us to believe, tomorrow will be the first day of August.

    That means that the high school sports season is pretty much already on top of us. All fall sports teams were allowed to start conditioning/practice on July 15, although, with that date falling on a Saturday, some did not start until the 17th.

  • Reece could be part of an All-BE...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – When it comes time for that big college destination decision, one key aspect always comes down to location.

    Some high school seniors want to be a little further from home while some others would prefer to stay in the area. That might even be more important for an athlete, as being close to home can mean family being able to continue following the exploits on the field.

  • Langley knew early that he...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Unlike a lot of high school seniors, Bullitt East’s Mitchell Langley knew where he was going to college way back last fall.

    In fact, Langley recalls the exact day that he contacted Spalding University head coach Matt Downs and committed.

    “It was back on Oct. 8,” the outfielder recalled. “I never wavered from that.”

  • Summer fun at Bullitt East...

     Coming off the high school ‘dead period’ recently, Bullitt East hosted its annual summer soccer camp.

    This year, the four-day event was under the direction of girls’ soccer coach Steve Gentry who took the reins from boys’ head coach Mike Brangers.

    Gentry and his Lady Charger players had over 50 elementary and middle school age players despite some warm temperatures.
