  • Downey, Sharpe tabbed for more...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Good basketball news keeps rolling in even if the season is already past.

    Downey to Play in Ohio-Kentucky Game

    North Bullitt senior Katie Downey, the Sixth Region Player of the Year, last week was invited to play in the 25th annual Ohio-Kentucky All-Star Basketball series. This year’s two games will be played at Thomas More College in Crestview Hills, Kentucky on Saturday night.

    The girls’ game is set for 5:30 p.m. with the boys’ game to follow at 7:30 p.m.

  • Tiller sees no barriers in...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Shepherdsville Elementary archery team has enjoyed recent success, much of it since Nevaeh Tiller decided to lend a hand.

    The fifth grader recently earned the team’s highest score, 259, to help lead SES to its first-ever archery victory at the St. Gabriel Tournament in Louisville.

    The score matched her older step-brother’s career high mark. And she did it all with one hand…literally!

  • Short week for BE includes no-...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Every softball team has that ‘light’ week on the schedule in which only a handful of games are to be played.

    Combine a ‘light’ week with bad weather and you get what the Bullitt East Lady Chargers ended up with last week -- one game.

    That single game was not a big challenge for one of the state’s top teams as the Lady Chargers stayed undefeated with a 12-0 victory on the road over Atherton. This game did go six innings as Bullitt East did not score the last three runs until the top of that frame.

  • BC softball needs consistency

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – On Tuesday of last week, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars showed a little of what they could be this season as they went on the road and pounded John Hardin 14-0 in five innings.

    Unfortunately, by Friday, the team had reverted back to its sloppy ways as they committed eight errors in a 12-5 loss to Fairdale. Even in this game the maroon and gray were within 5-4 after batting in the top of the fifth inning, but then gave up seven runs over the next two frames.

    It was the second loss this spring to the Lady Bulldogs.

  • BE’s Sharpe jumps at chance to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After a whirlwind two-week courtship, Bullitt East senior basketball standout Tyler Sharpe announced on Monday that he has decided to become a ‘preferred’ walk-on at the University of Louisville.

    News on Sharpe’s recruitment has mentioned a lot of different schools this winter, but not the Cardinals. The interest didn’t sprout until Louisville assistant coach David Padgett called Bullitt East athletic director Troy Barr to gauge interest from Sharpe.

  • Using wooden bats suits North...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- With six games on the slate last week, North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise got an opportunity to see a lot of pitchers take the mound.

    And he also saw his team come away with the title from the Ray Chapman Wooden Bat Classic in Ohio County.

    With just a single game this week prior to its annual trip to the Cal Ripkin Experience in Myrtle Beach, Wise was trying to get another contest.

    The highlight game of the week came on Friday when the Eagles fell 8-2 to Manual, a perennially good team in the Seventh Region.

  • Trinity gets the best of East in...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After an opening week to the season that head coach Jeff Bowles called ‘nearly perfect’, the winds of change blew in the opposite direction last week as the Chargers dropped a pair of games.

    Still, the two losses brought forth different emotions. On Monday, the Chargers dropped a nine-inning, 3-1 decision to traditional state power Trinity.

    Two days later, the loss was more painful as the Chargers did not snap back well, losing a 9-7 decision at Fairdale.

  • BC baseball seeking better...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Despite a lack of hitting, the Bullitt Central baseball team managed to win three of five games last week as strong pitching managed to carry the day.

    Unlike many teams in the area, the Cougars have managed to play a good number of games through the first three weeks of the regular season. As of the weekend, Bullitt Central stood 5-5 overall.

    “We are just hitting the ball terribly,” veteran head coach G.J. Moore said earlier this week. “We didn’t hit it well last year, but it is worse this year.”

  • Dolan signs and will play...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The ability to stay close to home was just about all that mattered to North Bullitt senior Erin Dolan so when Spalding University in downtown Louisville offered her a spot on its women’s basketball team, Dolan quickly accepted.

    “I’ve known since back last summer,” Dolan said of wanting to play for the Lady Golden Eagles. “When the summer season started they contacted me.”

  • North Bullitt girls stay perfect...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Local tennis teams dodged raindrops and, more importantly, the spring winds over the past week.

    One of the biggest individual performances came from North Bullitt senior Kess Ballard. 

    On Tuesday, she defeated Presentation Academcy’s Anna Zimlich in three sets, 7-5, 1-6, 1-0 (13-11).

    Last spring, Zimlick was seeded fourth in the Sixth Region tournament.

    Ballard’s victory led a 5-0 sweep by her North Bullitt teammates.
