  • East wins two of three, but...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After a less than sterling trip to Florida over spring break, the Bullitt East Chargers returned home and played some better baseball last week, winning two of three contests.

    The only negative was that the weather was not as good as it had been in Florida. In fact, the team lost a game on Tuesday against Thomas Nelson, but head coach Jeff Bowles was able to add a game on Wednesday when Taylor County made a visit to Mount Washington.

  • NB gets jump on district by...

     OKOLONA -- When Jacob Kelly graduates in June, the Southern baseball team may send him a present.

    The Trojans are probably tired of seeing the left-hander on the mound.

    From throwing a no-hitter to putting them out of district tournament play, Kelly has been a thorn in the Trojan side -- primarily from the mound.

    But, on Wednesday, the lefty was a force from the hill and from in the batter’s box.

    In the District 23 opener, North Bullitt put its seal on being the favorite to earn a top seed with a 10-2 win.

  • Federated Auto Parts 200 ARCA...

     SALEM, IN - The ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards is heading home, or so it may feel anyway.

    When the 63-year-old stock car tour converges on the small, southern Indiana city of Salem, Indiana, it will mark the 97th appearance at Salem since debuting on the historic half-mile oval in 1955. Over the years, no track has appeared on ARCA's annual schedule more than Salem.  

    The Federated Auto Parts ARCA 200 is set for Sunday at Salem Speedway Fueled by the Hoosier Lottery.

  • Spring turkey season opens...

     FRANKFORT - The wait is almost over for turkey hunters in Kentucky.

    A calendar shift pushed the state’s 23-day general spring wild turkey season back this year to the third weekend in April. It opens Saturday, April 18 and runs through May 10.

    Last spring, hunters in Kentucky reported taking 29,943 turkeys.

  • Area girls' track teams...

    BARDSTOWN-- The rivalry between the North Bullitt and Bullitt East girls' track teams picked up right where it left off before spring break on Thursday when the teams once again met up at the Cardinal Classic at Nelson County High School.
        Actually, on the girls' side, while there were 13 schools taking part, 15 of the day's 16 events were won by athletes from one of the Bullitt County teams (Bullitt Central was also taking part) or Elizabethtown High School.

  • NB girls' rolling to...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The days are counting down until tennis players in Bullitt County will enter regional competition.
        But there was plenty of action after students returned from spring break.
        North Bullitt
        The wins are continuing to roll in for the North Bullitt girls' program.
        On Tuesday, the squad went to Butler and came home with a 5-1 victory.

  • BE's Spencer casts his lot...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- When you are a 5-foot-8 offensive lineman, you don't really draw a lot of attention from college football coaches...or your high school coach.
        That was the position that Bullitt East senior Spencer Warren found himself as a sophomore in the Charger program. He loved football, he wasn't big enough to see much playing time.

  • A long weekend for NB at...

     HEBRON ESTATES – A year ago, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles surprised themselves a little bit when they traveled to Harrison County for the Vernon Bibb Memorial Tournament and came home with three wins and the championship trophy.

    This spring, North Bullitt got another surprise at the same tournament. Unfortunately, this year, it was more a shocking surprise as the team came home with three losses and nothing to show for the weekend.

  • BC softball again losing injury...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – If it was not for bad news, Bullitt Central softball coach Mike Phillips would really have no news to report at all.

    For the second straight season injuries are playing a key role in the team struggling on the field. Already, Phillips and the Lady Cougars have lost their top two catchers this season as both Brooklyn Benefield and Bethany Mann are out with injuries. Benefield with a broken wrist that will have her on the sideline for up to six weeks while Mann will miss at least two weeks with a knee injury.

  • Lady Chargers split four in...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There were a couple of disappointing stretches for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers on their annual spring break trip to the Disney Spring Training complex in Florida.

    It was sort of a bad doughnut week for the red and gold. There were losses surrounding the week, but with two wins in the middle.
