  • Spring post-season honors...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE-- The honors continue to roll in for area baseball and softball players after a successful spring campaign.
        Leading the news last week was the announcement that North Bullitt junior third baseman Logan Wyatt had been named to the All-State team by the Kentucky High School Baseball Coaches Association.

  • Carolina rig perfect for post...

     FRANKFORT, Ky. – The calendar said June 1, but the cold northeast wind, chilly rain and leaden skies seemed more like a bad day on the opening weekend of the April Keeneland meet.

    June finally arrived in Kentucky this week and water temperatures in lakes across the state inched their way up toward the high 70s.

    “Black bass are in post spawn now,” said Jeff Ross, assistant director of fisheries for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “They should be completely done with spawning.”

  • Baseball continues to find...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – If you haven’t been keeping track, I can certainly tell you without hesitation that Bullitt County has been playing some pretty good baseball over the past decade or so.

    Of course, North Bullitt is coming off back-to-back Sixth Region titles and the Eagles will certainly be one of the favorites when the spring season rolls around in nine months or so. Coach Brian Wise’s program has reached the semi-finals and quarter-finals of the Kentucky State Baseball Tournament at the end of the past two seasons.

  • NB’s Burton gets late call to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The son of a coach wants to coach.

    That is what North Bullitt senior Zack Burton wants for his future, but first there are still a few more football games to be played.

    When the Eagles’ season ended with the first round play-off loss to Grayson County in November, Burton felt that he had played in his final football game. But then at the last minute of the recruiting process, Campbellsville jumped into the picture and suddenly Burton had a new option for his immediate future.

  • NB’s Ellis set to play hoops at...

     HEBRON ESTATES – The pipeline of North Bullitt athletes to Spalding University continued recently when Eagle basketball standout Dominique Ellis threw his hat into the ring to play for the Golden Eagles one county north in Louisville.

    Ellis will rejoin with former North Bullitt standout Brandon Goeing who will be a senior with Spalding in the winter. Ellis and Goeing were teammates with the Eagles during the 2011-2012 season with the Eagles.

  • Highlands ends Eagles'...

    LEXINGTON -- Baseball is a game of inches.

    Sometimes the plays go in your favor. Sometimes they do not.

    On Wednesday evening, the second magical season for the North Bullitt Eagles came to a close. This time, in the quarterfinals of the Rawlings KHSAA State Baseball Tournament.

  • NB's Zachery ready for golf...

    HEBRON ESTATES – Deciding to play golf at North Bullitt for the past two seasons paid off handsomely recently for senior Madi Zachery as she has signed to play college golf at Georgetown College.

    Zachery actually had a longer softball career with the Lady Eagles, playing that sport in the spring with the green and gold for seven seasons including the last three on the varsity.

  • Young wildlife best left...

     FRANKFORT – Encounters with young wildlife increase in spring as people spend more time outdoors.

    An unattended deer fawn curled up in tall grass. A litter of rabbits discovered alone in the backyard. A baby bird furiously flapping its wings but struggling to get off the ground.

  • Carnell’s football skills taking...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – One of the most decorated players in Bullitt County football history, Bullitt Central senior Trevor Carnell, will be playing football at Centre College starting in the fall.

    Carnell has known for quite some time that his football career would continue at the small school in Danville. Centre offered the two things that Carnell was looking desired in a college.

  • Eagles soar 6-4 after stumbling...

     LEXINGTON -- It may have been North Bullitt’s best game of the year.

    Forget about the three errors in the first inning.

    Forget about having to come from behind twice.

    Forget about the June 1 temperatures that hovered in the 50s.

    Monday’s 6-4 victory over the Hopkinsville Tigers in the first round of the Rawlings KHSAA State Baseball Tournament in Lexington may have indeed been North Bullitt’s best of the season.
