  • Lady Chargers long on pitching,...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- There is one very distinct way for a high school softball coach to figure out how strong his team will be for the upcoming season.
        If opposing coaches quickly return your phone calls or emails concerning scheduling a game, you might have some work ahead of you. If coaches donÕt answer, then you know that you have a pretty good team.

  • After 18 seasons Newton steps...

    HEBRON ESTATES -- During the big snow a few weeks ago, North Bullitt football coach Brett Newton found himself with some extra time to review his retirement plan as a teacher in the Kentucky Public School System.
        What Newton discovered surprised even himself. He could actually retire at the end of this school term and have basically the same income as if he were still teaching. Newton had assumed that he still had a few years to go.

  • Pitching will have to carry BC...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Bullitt Central Cougars were set to start the high school baseball season on Tuesday of this week with a game at Bardstown.

    There is just one little problem with that. The Cougars have not been on a regular playing field yet this season.

    If high school games are ever played on an asphalt parking lot or in a school gym, then the Cougars would be ready to go. Unfortunately, grass and dirt are foreign to the players at this point in the campaign.

  • Charger baseball looking to hit...

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East has been one of the top baseball programs in the area for more than a decade, but last season the Chargers struggled to generate a lot of offense.

    Instead, the team posted a 27-8 record with strong pitching. The team scored just 5.2 runs a contest a year ago, but they gave up just two runs an outing.

    The lack of hitting was never more evident than in the opening game of the Sixth Region Tournament last year when the Chargers were knocked out by Holy Cross in a 2-1 game.

  • North Bullitt liked taste of...

     HEBRON ESTATES -- They’ve gotten a taste of the pie. Now, veteran skipper Brian Wise is hoping that his North Bullitt Eagles will be driven enough to want another taste.

    After its stunning run to the state baseball finals last June, Wise said there is no thing for sure this season.

    “We won’t be able to sneak up on anyone anymore,” said Wise. “We’ll have a target on our back.”

    But, that is a burden Wise and his Eagles will gladly take on.

  • BC’s Gossett resigns; will be...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Just two months ago, Mike Gossett was the one doing the hiring of a new football coach at Bullitt Central.

    Now, Gossett has been hired as a football coach.

    On Monday, Gossett announced that he would be stepping down as Bullitt Central’s athletic director at the end of the school year in June. The new landing spot will be at Southern High School where Gossett will become the head football coach.

    Gossett made it clear that he did not drop the Bullitt Central job to take the position at Southern.

  • OT heart breaker--Chargers fall...

    VALLEY STATION-- In a game filled with scoring spurts, it was the Doss Dragons that made the final run in the semi-finals of the Boys' Sixth Region Tournament on Tuesday as they managed to slip past Bullitt East 65-61.
        It was a frustrating loss for the Chargers as they played well enough to secure a win and a return spot in the championship game two days later. Instead, it turned into a nightmare of "what ifs" and "what might have been" long into the night on Tuesday.

  • BC's Sanders finishes 7th...

    LEXINGTON-- It all may have happened over two weeks later than expected, but the Bullitt Central wrestling program made a strong showing at least week's Kentucky State Wrestling Championships at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park.
        The meet was originally scheduled for a Friday-Saturday event back on Feb. 20-21, but heavy snow that week forced a postponement. So, the event was pushed back and held last Tuesday and Wednesday.

  • Kerberg adds to Union’s haul of...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Union College head coach Zak Willis, who just completed his first season as the Bulldogs’ head coach, is quickly developing a pipeline to Bullitt Central.

    For the third time this season, the Bulldogs’ head coach reached into the Cougar program and got a player, adding Bullitt Central lineman Micalan Kerberg to his roster.

    Earlier during the recruiting season Bullitt Central seniors Zack Patton and Cameron Mallory signed with the Bulldogs.

  • Local players have big impact on...

     FRANKFORT – This past weekend’s Mid-South Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament had a distinct Mt. Washington flare as four residents took part including three former Bullitt East players.

    In fact, in Saturday’s two semi-final games, each of the four teams had one Mt. Washington player taking part and for the most part making key contributions.
