  • BE, BC archery teams ready for...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the second straight year, both Bullitt East and Bullitt Central will compete on Thursday at the KHSAA Kentucky State Archery Championships at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

    A year ago, Bullitt East finished sixth at the state finals while Bullitt Central was 19th. Bullitt East senior Morgan Vaughn is one of the top returning shooters after finishing sixth a year ago with a 293 score (out of a possible 300).

  • Battle for Preston Highway: NB...

     OKOLONA -- North Bullitt’s victory over Male in a clash of baseball powers was important.

    But, in the scheme of things, the 12-5 win over Southern on Thursday was much more important.

    The victory gave North Bullitt a win in the 23rd District race. 

    The normally mild-mannered head coach Brian Wise didn’t think his players realized it was a district game.

    After the Eagles fell behind 1-0, North Bullitt players definitely heard Wise’s reminder of the importance of the contest.

  • East’s Farris a big get for...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – College coaches at small schools don’t often get the opportunity to grab a 6-7 post player with well developed offensive skills.

    That is why Asbury head coach Will Shouse was all smiles recently when he made the trip to Mount Washington to get the signature of Bullitt East senior Jared Farris for his NAIA basketball team. Farris will be as tall as any other player on the Eagle roster.

  • Tennis teams enjoy week of good...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The tennis season is quickly coming down to the tournament season.

    Added to the excitement this spring is a new format for the team competition.

    But before that is held in the first week of May, local competitors were busy enjoying a nice week of weather after some windy moments prior to spring break.

    North Bullitt suffered its first team loss of the season when it crossed into the Seventh Region to take on perennial powerhouse Assumption.

  • Three more wins for BE softball

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Sometimes, high school teams head south for spring break and meet up with spectacular weather while it is still winter back home.

    Other times, spring has already sprung in Kentucky and the teams could have got just as much accomplished at home with a lot less fund-raising involved.

  • Chargers red-hot heading back...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Just play five.

    That was the fun saying that Bullitt East head coach Jeff Bowles and his team came up with last week as they mowed through opponents in sunny Florida.

    There was a loss for the Chargers early in the trip, but the Chargers annual spring break trip to the Disney Wide World of Sports Complex was very successful as the red and gold returned home with a 4-1 mark with three straight wins to end the trip.

    Those last three wins all ended after five innings because of the high school ‘mercy’ rule.

  • Another great spring break in...

     MYRTLE BEACH -- Having not played a game for 10 days, North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise entered the annual trip to the Cal Ripken Experience in Myrtle Beach with a bit of nervousness.

    After running through a five-team stretch, which included three squads that Wise felt were very good teams, there was no more worry.

    The Eagles now enter the meat of the regular season with a 12-2 record and some bats that are red hot.

  • Trio of local hoops stars earn...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt County's two ‘Players of the Year’ - Bullitt East’s Tyler Sharpe and North Bullitt’s Katie Downey - both earned second-team All-State distinctions last week in voting by the state’s coaches conducted by the state’s largest newspaper.

    In addition, Bullitt East junior Lindsey Duvall was also a second team All-State selection.

  • Downey closes out her stellar...

      CRESTVIEW -- North Bullitt’s Katie Downey closed out her spectacular high school hoops career with an appearance in the Ohio-Kentucky All-Star game at Thomas More College near Cincinnati.

    Downey, who is the reigning Sixth Region Player of the Year and the school’s all-time leading scorer, got the starting nod in the game.

  • BE’s Vaughn set to expand...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior Morgan Vaughn will be the first to admit that when he first entered high school, that getting an ‘athletic’ scholarship, even partial aide, was not part of his future dreams.

    Jump ahead four years and Vaughn has parlayed four years in the Chargers’ highly competitive archery program into college aide. Recently, the senior signed to continue both his athletic and academic work at Union College in Barbourville, Kentucky.
