  • Schank comes up big as BC beats North

     HEBRON ESTATES — Both coaches knew that the 19-2 victory by North Bullitt in April would have no bearing on Monday’s 23rd District baseball opener.

    And both teams knew that the winner of the contest would advance to the championship game on Tuesday and a berth in the Sixth Region tournament. The other team would have next season to start working toward.

  • Chargers beat the Wildcats and the storm

     JEFFERSONTOWN – Get started, get a win, move on.

    Being perfect just makes it that much easier.

    That has been the post-season lament for high school coaches for a long time. Every team starts the post-season with a 0-0 record and regular season numbers don’t mean a thing. Just live to play another day.

    The Bullitt East Chargers did all of that and more on Sunday as the red and gold beat the rain and defeated Whitefield Academy 10-0 in the opening game of the 24th District Tournament at Jeffersontown High School.

  • NB rolls into Tuesday’s final

  • Lady Cougars fall to Southern

     HEBRON ESTATES — Maybe it was a sign.

    As Bullitt Central took the field in its 23rd District softball opener against Southern, the rains began to fall on Sunday.

    By the time umpires halted the game, the Lady Trojans had scored a run and had the bases loaded.

    Things didn’t get any better on Monday as Southern defeated the Lady Cougars 13-1 in five innings to advance to the championship game Tuesday against North Bullitt.

  • Lady Chargers’ bats go cold at the wrong time

     JEFFERSONTOWN – Riding a four-game winning streak, the longest of the season, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers appeared ready to make some noise in the 24th District Tournament.

    That route started well as the red and gold barely beat the rain on Sunday and defeated Whitefield Academy 17-2 in a contest that lasted just three innings.

    However, that rain forced the two semi-finals, scheduled for later on Sunday, to be moved back to Monday. Playing in the second game that day, the Lady Chargers could not generate any offense and lost to Jeffersontown 5-1.

  • Residents want process re-started

      CEDAR GROVE — Opponents to a 12-mile natural gas line going through many of their properties are upset.

    While they know Louisville Gas & Electric is currently working on getting easements, they are asking local officials to make a plea to start the permitting process from scratch.
