    Girls’ Action

    The Bullitt East girls split a pair of early-week matches.

    On Tuesday, Bullitt East lost 4-1 to Mercy.

    In singles, Savannah Kruse lost 6-4, 6-1 to Courtney Kawata. On court two, Teresa Moreno got the only victory for Bullitt East by defeating Emily Shrode 6-1, 6-3. On court three, Mercy’s Lily Weber defeated Jada Rush 6-4, 6-1

  • Charger Challenge

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The first in-county track meet of the season was on Wednesday as Bullitt East hosted the Charger Challenge.

    The event included 13 teams with squads coming from Bullitt, Spencer, Nelson and Jefferson County. Bullitt East head coach Lenny Raley had electronic timing in place for this event. That feature allowed the huge event to run smoothly.

    Still, while individual results were available, no team scores were posted.

  • Local tennis action is hitting high gear

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After a week off for spring vacation, local tennis teams returned to the courts.

    In boys’ action, Bullitt East won its second match of the season against North Bullitt 4-1.

    In singles, Daniel Davis defeated Matthew Smith 6-1, 6-1. On court two, Bullitt East’s Kameron Mullins defeated Chris Cordova 6-0, 6-1. The lone Eagle victory came as Andrew Stinson defeated Trenton Wood 8-0.

  • North out scores BE softball

     HEBRON ESTATES – A little sun seems to do the North Bullitt Lady Eagles a world of good.

    For the second year in a row, the green and gold returned from a spring break to Florida a different team. After winning four games over the first three weeks of the season, the Lady Eagles won four straight games last week including a 15-10 victory over Bullitt East in the first meeting between the two programs in two years.

  • BE pitching controls the week including NB

     HEBRON ESTATES – Baseball has the ‘perfect game’ as part of the long running lingo of the sport.

    The Bullitt East Chargers didn’t have a perfect game last week, but they almost had a perfect week. The red and gold won four times to run the team’s winning streak to ten games. In the four games last week, the Chargers allowed just two runs and neither of those were earned.

  • Central opens district play with loss to Southern

     SHEPHERDSVILLE  — It was not the way Bullitt Central coach G.J. Moore wanted to start the District 23 campaign.

    Postponed a day due to a wet field, Bullitt Central’s bats never woke up as the Cougars fell 11-1 in six innings to the Southern Trojans.

    After the first round of district play, North Bullitt and Southern have victories and Bullitt Central and Moore have losses. The regular season play will determine the all-important seeding for the district tourney in May.

  • North wins district opener

     HEBRON ESTATES — No matter how pretty. No matter how ugly. It is always golden when you can pick up a victory in a district game.

    On Tuesday, North Bullitt did what it was supposed to do — take care of business in defeating Moore 10-0 in five innings.

    Head coach Brian Wise was able to breathe a little easier after the first inning.

    With three consecutive walks to load the bases, senior Drew Wheatly belted a grand slam for a 4-0 lead.

    Walks forced in two more runs in the second inning.

  • Zoneton excited about meeting goal of reaching Orlando finals

     ZONETON—It’s hard to be a middle school cheerleader in Bullitt County when Eastside Middle is a nationally known team to beat.

    That didn’t stop Zoneton Middle from surpassing its own goals of joining the Eagles on the Orlando mat.

    For the first time in school history, the cheer team placed in the state competition, coming in at second and securing the team’s first-ever national’s bid.

    Once at Walt Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, the team went further than even they expected.

  • Eastside continues dominance as it wins fourth straight

     MOUNT WASHINGTON—Girls around the county and around the country watch the Eastside Middle cheerleaders compete year after year at Walt Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando.

    The only extra magic Eastside brings to the competition, though, are some sparkly mouse ears to wear in the parks.

    “I tell the girls every year when they join the team that there’s no magic in the uniform,” coach Carrie DeBold said.

    The team’s four-time winning streak is caused by pure sweat and dedication.

  • North, East get mixed spring softball results

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – North Bullitt and Bullitt East will clash on Thursday of this week on the Lady Eagles’ home field in a game set to start at 5:30 p.m.

    To prepare for that contest, both teams made out of state trips last week for spring break. North Bullitt headed to Florida while Bullitt East was in the Great Smoky Mountains.

    The Lady Eagles had plenty of offense early during the spring break trip to Destin Florida for the Florida Beach Bash event, but that faded away against better competition.
