  • Former BE Lady Charger standout...

     TAYLORSVILLE – If the Spencer County Lady Bears’ basketball program is to take the next step toward competing for district and regional titles, it may require stepping back to the basics of the game.

    That’s the philosophy of new head coach Brandy Scott as she takes over a program that has struggled in recent years to match up with the better teams in the area.

  • High school sports season is...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The vacation is over. Like all of us, that is a sad thing to have to say. It’s like the day after Christmas.

    Still, it is great to come back to a job that you love and that has not changed one bit.

  • Last Camps of Summer

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Before school started today in Bullitt County there was a rush to get in the last of the summer youth camps that have become the staple for area families.

    At Zoneton Middle School, boys’ basketball coach Casey Bannon held her Sixth Annual Timberwolf Camp and had a strong turnout. One of the highlights of the four-day event was a guest appearance by former University of Louisville women’s basketball player Tia Gibbs who talked about what it takes to play at the next level.

  • Young soccer players get basic...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - With the World Cup Soccer Tournament filling TV screens earlier this summer, Bullitt East soccer coach Mike Brangers (right) conducted his annual camp at the school.

    For four nights, almost 50 young players were coached on the basics of the game including dribbling, passing and goal keeping as well as an obstacle course.

  • BC’s Humphrey to play basketball...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Making the most of an open gym try-out late in the spring, Bullitt Central senior Zack Humphrey earned an invitation to join the program at Spalding University.

    As Humphrey recalled, it didn’t take much selling from Golden Eagle head coach Kevin Gray to get Humphrey to stay close to home for his college basketball.

    Of course, Humphrey didn’t mention to Gray that he was planning at attending the Louisville-area college if basketball was involved or not.

  • Coaching moves affect number of...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – While Bullitt County had no major football coaching changes this season, and hasn’t for a number of years, some of this fall’s opponents had major changes at the top of their programs.

  • North Bullitt’s Logan Wyatt...

     HEBRON ESTATES – On Wednesday, power-hitting North Bullitt third baseman Logan Wyatt tweeted out that he had committed to the University of Louisville and head coach Dan McDonnell.

    The announcement was confirmed by Eagle baseball coach Brian Wise the next day who said that the decision was an easy one for Wyatt who grew up a fan of the Cardinals. It was also a quick decision by Wyatt who had only visited with McDonnell the previous day. It was also his first official visit.

  • Blue Lick 11s advance to state...

      BRANDENBURG - With a single swing of the bat, the post-season run of the Blue Lick 11 All-Stars basically came to a close.

    Jumping out quickly in the semifinal clash of the West Kentucky State Tournament Sunday in Brandenburg, Blue Lick had the early momentum.

    However, when Meade County cleanup hitter Justin Stowe stepped to the plate, a two-strike connection over the center-field fence reversed that momentum.

    The host team would go on to a 13-5 victory.

  • Tough state tourney for MW U-15...

     GERMANTOWN – After going 2-2 and finishing third in the Combined District 8, 9, 10, 11 Tournament a week earlier, the Mount Washington U-15 All-Stars found life a lot more difficult last week in the West Kentucky State Tournament hosted by the Germantown Youth League.

    In three games, coach Mark Deetsch team struggled against good teams, failing to win a game in three tries.

  • Next softball stop for Price is...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – If it worked out once, then try it again.

    That was the thinking of former Bullitt East softball standout Taylor Price as she returned to the Media Center at her former school to sign her second paperwork to continue playing her sport in college.

    In late May, Price signed to play her final two years in college for the Western Kentucky Lady Hilltoppers.
