  • BE's Bogard signs with...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East softball program doesn’t need any holp from its county rivals, past or present, but that doesn’t mean the program and players won’t take a little when it is offered.

         Bullitt East senior Jeri Bogard got a nice assist from former Bullitt Central head coach Buddy Gallemore this spring as the first-year assistant coach at Midway College reached out to her and offered a spot in the Eagles’ program.

  • Local golfers excel this summer

    LOUISVILLE – The summer golf circuit, the Musselman-Dunne Golf Tour conducted by the Kentucky Junior Golf Foundation, came to positive finish last week for a number of local athletes.

         At the Tour Championship on Monday and Tuesday at Big Spring Country Club in Louisville, Mount Washington’s Ethan Breeden finished second with a 152 total, finishing just four strokes off the pace of winner Oliver Whatley of Louisville in the 15-16 boys’ division.

  • Short season, long effort for...

     HILLVIEW – In Kentucky, the summer swim season is never long enough.

    However, this summer, with the end of the school year pushed back into second week of June, the summer swim season for the Dolphins Swim Team was really short in 2014. Veteran team coach Kathy Abell had her swimmers for only five total weeks this summer compared to as many as eight or nine weeks in the past.

  • Big swing eliminates Blue Lick...

     OKOLONA - With one swing of the bat, the season ended for the Blue Lick 16-18 All-Stars.

    In the top of the fifth inning, Ben Parker hit a long two-run homer to propel Okolona over Blue Lick 5-3 in the quarterfinals of the state Babe Ruth baseball tournament.

    The host Okolona team would go on to win the state title and advance to the Ohio Valley regional tournament later this week in Wisconsin.

  • Local All-Star squads taking...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A number of local baseball All-Star teams will be taking part in Kentucky Babe Ruth State Tournaments this week.

    The team playing closest to home will be the Mount Washington Under-15 All-Stars who will be playing at Germantown in Louisville. That team is coming off a third-place finish in the last week’s combined district tournament at St. Matthews.

  • Fast start pushes MW U-15 to...

    SAINT MATTHEWS – It was a super Saturday for the Mount Washington Under-15 All-Stars as the team won its first two games in the District 8, 9, 10, 11 Babe Ruth Tournament at St. Matthews Community Park.

         Those two wins put coach Mark Deetsch’s team into the winner’s bracket championship game on Sunday. It was at that point that reality hit the Mount Washington team as a Germantown squad filled with high school players continued to romp through the tournament with a lopsided win.

  • Blue Lick U-11 baseball stars...

    HILLVIEW -- They had to do it the hard way but the Blue Lick 11 All-Stars will be returning to the state tournament this week as the district champs.

  • Central's Ford ready to be...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – When sports fans first think of cheerleaders the initial thought is not about the big guys that lift and throw the girls into the air.

         When college coaches look at high school cheerleading squads for their new members, their first look is often to the big guys that form the foundation for a strong team.

  • MW U-12 baseball finishes 1-2 in...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A tough opening loss put the Mount Washington Under-12 All-Stars behind the eight ball in the Combined Cal Ripken District 10 and 11 Tournament which the local league was hosting.

         Coach Channing Branham’s team battled back for a win in the loser’s bracket a day later, but a second game that day in the loser’s bracket went against the local team and they were eliminated with a 1-2 record.

  • Barren Co. cools MW U-8 All-Stars

     FERN CREEK –  After a hot start the Mount Washington U-8 All-Stars cooled off quickly in the quarter-finals of the Babe Ruth Kentucky State Tournament on Saturday at Fern Creek Park in Louisville.

    In the opening games of ‘pool’ play, the team coached by Dave Johnston slipped past Jeffersontown 15-13 and then crushed Fern Creek Orange by a 23-9 score. Those games were played on Thursday and Friday.

    That left the team with the number two seed from the pool heading into the quarter-finals.
