  • BE’s Waddle taking bow skills to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – One offer was all that Bullitt East senior Sierra Waddle needed to know exactly where she wanted to attend college and compete in her favorite sport.

    That all came together last fall when the newest sport at Campbellsville University – archery – offered Waddle financial aide to attend the school. After that, Waddle put the college recruiting business behind her.

  • Baseball and softball ready for...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – With spring break in the rearview mirror, the high school baseball and softball seasons can focus on what is most important -- the play between the foul lines.

    That is not a knock of the action during the first three weeks of the season. It is just an indictment of how coaches break down the season.

  • Sharpe’s golden run continues in...

     LOUISVILLE – The golden spring for Bullitt East basketball standout Tyler Sharpe will continue on Friday as he will participate in the Kentucky Derby Festival Basketball Classic Presented by Papa John’s at Freedom Hall.

    Sharpe will be just the second local player to participate in the country’s oldest high school All-Star Game that since 1973 has invited some of the stop players in the country to participate.

  • Shep. pool unlikely to open this...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- While nothing is official, if you liked to take a swim in the pool next to Bullitt Central High School this summer, you might start looking for other options.

    Without a blessing from state inspectors to open the pool while repairs are being done, Bullitt County YMCA executive director June Daugherty said the chances of opening the main pool are very doubtful.

  • BC’s Phillips signs to run...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central senior Kelsey Phillips has developed into a top long-distance running threat in both cross-country and track, but it was the short distance to Spalding University in Louisville that made her decide to become a Lady Golden Eagle.

    In fact, it was over three months ago that Phillips decided that Spalding would be her next running home. It just took a while for it all to become official with an official signing ceremony in the Bullitt Central library recently.

  • Lady Chargers undefeated heading...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Another week, another no-hitter.

    For the third time this season, Bullitt East sophomore Taylor Roby threw a no-hitter as the Lady Chargers rolled past Garfield Heights, a team from Ohio, in a one day doubleheader at Butler County, by a 10-0 score in six innings.

  • Defense continues to haunt...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After the first two weeks of the season, Bullitt Central softball coach Mike Phillips was marveling at how many games his team had played despite some ‘iffy’ weather.

    Well those times are catching up with the maroon and gray as they got to play just one game last week. Over the last two weeks, the team has played just three games heading into spring break.

    On Tuesday, the Lady Cougars did get to play at home, but they came out on the short end of a 6-1 decision to Christian Academy.

  • East takes advantage of early...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore knew that his team needed an almost perfect outing on Wednesday if it expected to compete with Sixth Region rival Bullitt East.

    Unfortunately, it didn’t happen.

    A misplayed fly ball in the first inning led to two early runs and it was all down hill from there as Bullitt East smacked a pair of home runs in rolling to a 12-1 win in five innings.

  • Willis, Troutman both have great...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The college basketball season ended this week officially, but as everyone knows, the sport rarely takes a break in these parts.

    The two most high-level Bullitt County players in the college ranks this winter were obviously former Bullitt East teammates Derek Willis at the University of Kentucky and Rusty Troutman at Bellarmine University.

  • Staples making bid for even...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Jacob Staples’ quest to return to the state tennis tournament may have gotten a boost last week.

    Bullitt East lost 4-1 to Manual but Staples recorded a quality victory.

    The senior defeated Luke Sheridan-Rabideau 2-6, 7-5, 1-0 (13-11).

    Sheridan-Rabideau was the fifth seed in the Sixth Region tennis tournament a year ago.

    Bullitt East coach Dustin Armstrong said that once Staples began to go after his opponent’s backhand, things turned in the Chargers’ favor.
