  • Various ways to take results of May primary

     Some casual observations about the recent occurrence we call the spring primary election:

    *First - thanks to all those who stuck your necks, and pocketbooks, out to run for office.

    It takes a major commitment of time and energy to run for any political office, no matter the size.

    As you can see, candidates are not always popular.

    Things will be said and allegations made.

    That type of advertising is not reserved only for the state and national races.

    Once again, thanks to all who ran for office.

  • Bats go cold as BE suffers 2-1 setback

     MT. WASHINGTON – For all the good things the Bullitt East Chargers did this season in rolling to 27 victories, an 11th consecutive district title and a high state ranking, the team had one major Achilles heel – hitting.

    That bugaboo caught up with the red and gold on Monday as they were knocked out of the post-season with a 2-1 loss to Holy Cross in the first-round of the Sixth Region Tournament.

    The game was played at Bullitt East marking the first time the Chargers had ever hosted a regional baseball contest.

  • One bad inning drops BE softball

     LOUISVILLE – There is a big difference in teams between the first game of the season and the post-season, just ask the Bullitt East Lady Chargers.

    Coach Ricky Hoffman’s team had defeated Butler 8-0 in the first game of this season back when it was still winter, March 13.

    That all changed in difficult ways for Bullitt East on Monday as the red and gold suffered a 4-3 loss to the Bearettes in the first game of the Sixth Region Tournament.

  • Holy Cross gets jump on NB girls

    The game was played at Holy Cross, one of the area’s top teams, as the Lady Cougars were coming off a championship in the 21st District tournament. North Bullitt reached the Sixth Region Tournament as the runner-up in the 23rd District.
