     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It has just been on of those baseball seasons for the Bullitt Central Cougars.

     LOUISVILLE -- For years, the regional tennis tournament has determined individual players who would advance to the state tournament.

    The cumulative team scores from the individual matches would determine which squad would also advance to a separate state competition.

    This year, the rules have changed. 

    A separate team competition will be held in the 16 regions with the winning squads advancing to a state tournament.

    For Sixth Region teams, that will be conducted the week of May 2.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Two years ago, Bullitt Central’s Sean Sanders would have bet his last dollar that his college athletic future lied with football.

     MOUNT WASHINGTON—The day before her 15-year-old son died in June 2012, Chrystal Goodman O’Bryan and her family passed by the skate park in Paoli, Indiana.

    “He wanted to stop,” she said. “We were on a family day trip and we were running behind. I wouldn’t stop. He just wanted to check it out and he didn’t understand why a small town like that had one and we didn’t.”

    The next night, Prescott Lee Goodman was hit while riding his bike on Bardstown Road across from Kroger.
