  • Tough loss early haunts BC...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – When is a loss more than a single loss? When it comes in the eighth inning against your arch-rival.

    That is what happened to Bullitt Central last week. On Monday, the Cougars played well against North Bullitt, but lost to a run in the bottom of the eighth inning.

  • 2014 Mount Washington Spring...

     Much like the postal service, the Mount Washington Spring Run delivers rain or shine.

    Despite steady and at times heavy rain on Saturday morning, the event conducted by Team Pruitt, went off on schedule.

    Still, the rain did keep some runners inside in dry conditions as the 5K event had just 68 runners, much lower than in years past.

    In the men’s run, Dean Huff, who lives in Mount Washington, won the race with a time of 20:32, 50 seconds ahead of the runner-up, Dylan Brigmon.

  • KHSAA Board of Control has big...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE-- The Kentucky High School Athletic Association will have a Board of Control meeting today starting at 5 p.m. that is sure to have ramifications for some local sports for next few years.
        First, the Board could give final approval to the proposed football realignment for the 2015 to 2018 school years. That proposal has the three Bullitt County schools playing in Class 5-A, District 3 along with Nelson County, South Oldham and North Oldham.

  • There was an All-County track...

    BARDSTOWN-- After being rained out on their original date and then not being able to get everyone together later in the week for the Bardstown Invitational, the three Bullitt County track programs all jumped into an All-Comers Meet at Thomas Nelson High School last Thursday for what was listed as the All-Bullitt County Meet.
        The All-County designation was a little misleading as six other schools were also taking part in the meet. Plus, since the event was added to everyone's schedule at the last minute, not all of the teams were at full strength.

  • BE's Norris reaches state...

    FRANKFORT--Bullitt East senior Hunter Norris moved into rarified air last week when he qualified for a third straight trip to the Boys' Kentucky State Tennis Tournament as he reached the semi-finals of the Eighth Region Tournament at Franklin County High School.
        Norris had twice previously gotten to Lexington for the state tourney in doubles along with partner Reese Milburn. After Milburn's graduation, Norris switched over to singles and with the spot in the semi-finals, advanced to the state tourney.

  • Lady Chargers find missing...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A week ago, Bullitt East Lady Chargers softball coach Ricky Hoffman said his team’s offense was ‘in a slump’ after a two week stretch in which the team lost a number of games to some of the state’s top teams.

  • Chargers play it like post-...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For three straight weeks, Bullitt East baseball head coach Jeff Bowles has been running his team through ‘mini regional tournaments’, three game series against top-flight competition.

    After going 3-0 over three days in the Louisville Invitational Tournament the previous weekend, the Chargers faced any even tough group of teams late last week, but the red and gold responded well, beating Sixth Region rivals DeSales and Butler sandwiched around an extra-inning loss to defending state champion Pleasure Ridge Park.

  • Run in eighth lifts Eagles past...

      HEBRON ESTATES – A throw over third base in the bottom of the eighth inning allowed a run to score as the North Bullitt Eagles pulled out a 2-1 victory over Bullitt Central on Monday.

    The game had been pushed back a week because of bad weather the previous Monday, but the wait was worth it as the two county rivals and 23rd District combatants put on a classic battle that wasn’t decided until the final moment.

  • No hits? Not a problem for NB...

     HEBRON ESTATES - You survive a lightning delay on the road to win in 12 innings.

    You throw an eighth grader on the hill for his first varsity start, you get no hits but still win.

    You run-rule a team that has beaten Trinity and St. Xavier this year.

    You do all three of those things and it’s been a pretty darn good week.

    Such is the life for head coach Brian Wise and his North Bullitt Eagles.

  • Tennis teams close out regular...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- As the final days of the regular season approached, tennis coaches were busy figuring out who would play where in the upcoming Eighth Region tournament in Frankfort.
