  • Chargers stay hot, but rain halts play Saturday

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Not every team plays every game at the highest level – not even the Bullitt East baseball program.

  • 2014 Mount Washington Spring Festival Team Pruitt Spring Run

     Much like the postal service, the Mount Washington Spring Run delivers rain or shine.

    In the men’s run, Dean Huff, who lives in Mount Washington, won the race with a time of 20:32, 50 seconds ahead of the runner-up, Dylan Brigmon.

  • There was an All-County track meet--sort of

    BARDSTOWN-- After being rained out on their original date and then not being able to get everyone together later in the week for the Bardstown Invitational, the three Bullitt County track programs all jumped into an All-Comers Meet at Thomas Nelson High School last Thursday for what was listed as the All-Bullitt County Meet.
        The All-County designation was a little misleading as six other schools were also taking part in the meet. Plus, since the event was added to everyone's schedule at the last minute, not all of the teams were at full strength.
