  • Easter tales for Bullitt County

     The primary election may have cracked open a large hole in Bullitt County’s annual Easter egg distribution plans, and the yolk is on local officials and candidates.

    The Bullitt County branch of the Regional Authority of Bunnies Bringing Incredible Things (RABBIT) Coalition has announced its refusal to deliver and hide Easter eggs in the county.

    “This decision was based upon political strife, partially caused by primary elections held too close to this wondrous holiday,” said RABBIT spokesperson Cleo “Crusty” Honeybunny.

  • Chargers score last to slip past Eagles 3-2

     HEBRON ESTATES - It was a pitcher’s dream.

    A nice, warm day with the winds blowing into the face of the batters.

    The batters struggled on Saturday but the Bullitt East Chargers got a few more “freebies” at opportune times to scratch out a 3-2 victory over county rival North Bullitt.

    While the teams are no longer in the same district, such games always mean a little more.

  • Hitting is better but BC struggling to hold leads

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Over the first few weeks of the season, Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore lamented his team’s lack of hitting, giving his pitchers little chance of getting wins.

    Coming out of spring break, the Cougars suddenly shifted gears. The hitting picked up and so did the run production, but then the Cougars started giving up a big inning. That led to some long games and big totals. Finally, that translated into a 1-1 week that saw the Cougars score 20 runs while giving up 23.

  • Pitching continues to carry Chargers to wins

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers have done a lot right this spring in posting a 12-4 record near the midway point of the high school baseball season.

    In fact, they have pretty much done everything right except hit the ball. The pitching has been formidable and the defense has done enough right most of the time to keep the pitchers in games. It is just at the plate where the Chargers have a lot of room for improvement.

  • Tennis back to speed after break

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Local tennis teams have been dancing around the spring weather as the regional tournament is now a month away.

  • Coulter signs with Campbellsville

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bullitt East senior football player Cruise Coulter has a nose for the endzone.

         That ability certainly caught the eye of the coaches at Campbellsville University and last week Coulter opted to become a Tiger, announcing it at a gathering in the Bullitt East Media Center in front of family, coaching and teammates.

         The next day, the Bullitt East senior was going to head to Campbellsville where he was going to watch the Tigers’ spring game as well as complete all the paperwork.
