  • Skate Park Honoring Prescott to...

     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.

  • Lady Cougar softball wins two

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – While still not world-beaters, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars are showing some signs of being a competitive softball team after going 2-2 last week.

    Coach Mike Phillips team started this week with a 4-15 record.

    The most important win came on Wednesday when Bullitt Central mauled visiting Moore 16-1 in a district game that will be used to seed the post-season tournament. The Lady Cougars had beaten Moore earlier in the season.

  • East softball stays hot, wins...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The loneliest position on the Bullitt East Lady Charger softball squad this spring might just be that of the back-up pitcher.

    With one of the state’s top pitchers, sophomore Taylor Roby, hurling lights out this season, there hasn’t been the need for anyone else to throw. Bullitt East head coach Ricky Hoffman has talked about the position, but through the first 13 games of the season, Roby has thrown every pitch.

  • Charger baseball posts 3-1 week

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers went 3-1 last week and won a key game within the 24th District, but it was the only loss that left head coach Jeff Bowles shaking his head.

    For all the success his program has had in recent years, the Chargers just can’t seem to beat Sixth Region rival Pleasure Ridge Park, be it in the regular season or the post-season. That was the case again on Thursday as the Panthers beat the Chargers 7-2 in Mount Washington.

  • Consistency still eluding Central

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The only thing consistent about the Bullitt Central baseball team this spring is inconsistency.

    That was definitely the story last week as the maroon and gray posted a 2-2 mark. The team’s record starting this week is now 8-12.

    Unfortunately, the week started on a really bad note as the Cougars dropped a 3-2 decision to Moore, a contest that will be used for seeding the 23rd District Tournament in May.

  • Blackburn stepping down came as...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The news late last week that Bullitt East boys’ basketball coach Bob Blackburn was stepping down came as no surprise.

    The only surprise was the timing of the announcement as Blackburn made his decision final on the same day that Charger Nation was ready to focus on favorite son Tyler Sharpe playing in the prestigious Kentucky Derby Festival All-Star Game at Freedom Hall.

  • BE, BC archery teams ready for...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the second straight year, both Bullitt East and Bullitt Central will compete on Thursday at the KHSAA Kentucky State Archery Championships at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

    A year ago, Bullitt East finished sixth at the state finals while Bullitt Central was 19th. Bullitt East senior Morgan Vaughn is one of the top returning shooters after finishing sixth a year ago with a 293 score (out of a possible 300).

  • Battle for Preston Highway: NB...

     OKOLONA -- North Bullitt’s victory over Male in a clash of baseball powers was important.

    But, in the scheme of things, the 12-5 win over Southern on Thursday was much more important.

    The victory gave North Bullitt a win in the 23rd District race. 

    The normally mild-mannered head coach Brian Wise didn’t think his players realized it was a district game.

    After the Eagles fell behind 1-0, North Bullitt players definitely heard Wise’s reminder of the importance of the contest.

  • East’s Farris a big get for...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – College coaches at small schools don’t often get the opportunity to grab a 6-7 post player with well developed offensive skills.

    That is why Asbury head coach Will Shouse was all smiles recently when he made the trip to Mount Washington to get the signature of Bullitt East senior Jared Farris for his NAIA basketball team. Farris will be as tall as any other player on the Eagle roster.

  • Tennis teams enjoy week of good...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The tennis season is quickly coming down to the tournament season.

    Added to the excitement this spring is a new format for the team competition.

    But before that is held in the first week of May, local competitors were busy enjoying a nice week of weather after some windy moments prior to spring break.

    North Bullitt suffered its first team loss of the season when it crossed into the Seventh Region to take on perennial powerhouse Assumption.
