  • Girls' winning records show...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the second time in the past three seasons, all three Bullitt County girls’ basketball teams advanced out of district play and into the Sixth Region Tournament.

         Add to that the fact that all three teams posted winning records and it all adds-up to another strong season for the three Bullitt County girls’ programs.

  • 8th Region tennis tourney starts...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The first sport to hit the post-season mark will be boys' and girls' tennis.

  • NB softball comes up just short...

      HEBRON ESTATES – After beating Bullitt Central two days earlier, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles had a chance to wrap up the number one seed for the 23rd District Tournament in three weeks, but at Southern on Wednesday the green and gold dropped a 5-3 decision.

    A day later, coach Mike Nally’s team rolled over Moore 15-0 in four innings to finish district play with a 2-1 record. That will give them the number two seed for the 23rd District Tournament, which will be played at Bullitt Central the week of May 19.

  • Toughest stretch ever comes to...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Few softball teams in the state had a tougher two-week stretch than the one the Bullitt East Lady Chargers just went through.

  • BC’s Phillips can see better...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Despite the fact that the team has won just three games this season, first-year Bullitt Central softball coach Mike Phillips believes that he sees the light at the end of the tunnel – and it is not an oncoming train.

    Finally, it looks like the Lady Cougars could return to the line-up that defeated Fern Creek (a team that beat Bullitt East last week) in the first week of the season. Phillips has not seen that team since a rash of injuries sidetracked the season.

  • BC baseball sets up showdown at...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore has been waiting for it most of the season.

    On Tuesday, he finally saw it.

    His Bullitt Central Cougars put together its best all-around game of the season - at the right time.

    The Cougars went to 2-0 in 23rd District play with a 10-0 victory over the Southern Trojans.

    The victory set up a winner-take-all game on Monday at North Bullitt for the top seed in the district tournament.

  • North takes tough losses

     HEBRON ESTATES - North Bullitt baseball skipper Brian Wise took his team back in time.

    It was a district opener between Moore and Bullitt Central last May. The Cougars were expected to easily defeat the Mustangs.

    Bullitt Central would win that game but it was anything but easy.

    The lesson was simple - never take any game for granted.

    In an important 23rd District game, North Bullitt took control in the very first inning to win 8-2 over the Mustangs.

  • BE drops one, wins three

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The way the Bullitt East Chargers have been struggling at the plate this season, it was just a matter of time before a strong pitching performance was going to be wasted.

    That day finally came last Tuesday when the Chargers gave up three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning and lost to district rival Jeffersontown 3-2. Bullitt East had just five hits in the game and wasted a strong effort from senior Zac Ching, who pitched the first six innings.

  • For a second time, local track...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – As my old grandpappy used to tell me, ‘you can’t flog a dead horse.’

         Well actually you can flog a dead horse, but you just don’t get any results.

         As has been stated here many times in the past, the condition of the three tracks at the Bullitt County high schools is not good. In fact, it is horrible.

  • Local girls win 15 of 18 events...

     BARDSTOWN – The Border Battle, a track and field meet between the three public schools from Bullitt County against the three schools in Nelson County, had split winners this year.

         For Bullitt County, most of the success came on the girls’ side as Bullitt East, North Bullitt and Bullitt Central combined to win 15 of the 18 events contested. Individual school scores were kept with Bullitt East edging past North Bullitt 133 to 119.5. Bullitt Central was fourth with 80 points.
