High School Sports

  • Rolling Hills’ Merrick signs with Tiger V-ball

     HEBRON ESTATES – For the second year in a row, Campbellsville University reached out to Rolling Hills Christian to sign a player for its NAIA Volleyball program.

    This spring, it was Paige Merrick who got the call and she quickly accepted the offer from head coach Amy Zink. A year ago it was Baylee Jensen who Zink plucked from Rolling Hills.

  • BC’s Gossett, BE’s Armstrong named ‘Coaches of the Year’

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Two local tennis coaches have been recognized by their peers.

    The members of the Kentucky High School Tennis Coaches Association selected Bullitt Central’s Tiffany Gossett and Bullitt East’s Dustin Armstrong as the Sixth Region Coaches of the Year.

    “I was very surprised and thankful to receive such an honor from my peers,” said Gossett, who coaches both the boys’ and girls’ teams at Bullitt Central.

  • East’s Higdon signs for hoops play at Spalding

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The pipeline between Bullitt County and the Spalding University women’s basketball program worked again this spring when Bullitt East senior Amber Higdon signed to play with the Lady Eagles and head coach Charlie Just.

    Higdon will be rejoining with former teammate Alyssa Peak who will be a sophomore with Spalding in the upcoming season. Former North Bullitt player Megan Goeing plays with the Lady Eagles and they will all be joined by North Bullitt twins Caroline and Sarah Janes next season.

  • Eastside’s Egan wins middle school hurdles title

     LOUISVILLE – One of the strongest contingents in several years turned in a banner day on May 26 at the Kentucky Track and Cross Country Coaches Association Middle School State Championships at the University of Louisville.

  • KHSAA is combining region cheer events

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It is just six weeks until the start of football, volleyball, soccer, golf and cross-country practices on July 15 for area high school programs.

    Where did the summer go? LOL.

    Before we get into full summer mode here, a handful of things happened during the spring that just sort of got moved to a back burner because of space and time constraints.

    Cheer Changes

  • SEMIS -- East rallies past North 3-2 in a classic

     LOUISVILLE – In a contest that will go down in local baseball lore as perhaps the best ever, the Bullitt East Chargers scored twice in the bottom of the seventh inning and beat North Bullitt 3-2 on the biggest stage in which the two arch-rivals have ever met.

  • Final -- Defense falters as Chargers fall to PRP 9-0

     LOUISVILLE – High school sports can teach a lot of lessons for life.

    For the Bullitt East Chargers, the lessons learned from Thursday’s Sixth Region Baseball Championship Game was that sometimes the other team is just a better squad. That was obvious for this season after Pleasure Ridge Park took the best the Chargers had to offer and rolled to a 9-0 victory at the University of Louisville’s Jim Patterson Stadium.

  • Shepherdsville’s Bickel headed to play at Penn State -- Altoona

     Many people may consider the railroad industry as a thing of the past, but not Bethlehem senior Shawn Bickel.

    For as far back as he can remember, Bickel has been enamored by the railroad system.

    Not just being the engineer on a train, but he loves everything about the business.

    It might be working on a track, maintaining signals, or designing the electrical system.

  • BASEBALL - East wins and advances over Fairdale

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There are no style points in baseball.

    In addition, in the post-season, nobody asks if the game was beautiful, only did you win or lose.

    While it wasn’t always a thing of beauty, the Bullitt East Chargers won and advanced on Monday, beating former district rival Fairdale 8-2 in an opening round game of the Sixth Region Tournament.

  • BASEBALL - Eagles shine in beating DeSales

     HEBRON ESTATES — Forget the record. The North Bullitt Eagles feel they are still a team to be in the hunt for a Sixth Region baseball title.

    On Monday, they put pitching, defense and timely hitting together to defeat DeSales 9-1 in the opening round of the regional tournament.

    This is a DeSales program which has been to the regional final the past three years.

    On Monday, veteran skipper Brian Wise put senior ace Alec Lush on the hill.
