  • Tennis’ final week brings fair weather and flurry of play

    SHEPHERDSVILLE  — Boys and girls will be heading into Jefferson County this week as Sixth Region tournament action begins.

    Since the draw was not until Sunday night, no pairings are available.

    Savannah Kruse should have a high seed in her bid to return to the state tournament in Frankfort. Shanna Blocker of North Bullitt could also have an opportunity for a seed in singles play.

    On the boys side, it is unlikely any of the local participants will have a seed.

  • It will be a busy final week for area track programs

    MOUNT WASHINGTON -- The track season for all three area programs will end with a flurry this week with a pair of big meets.

    First, on Monday, the All-Bullitt County Track Championships will be held at Bullitt East High School.

    This event will be part of a full evening of track and field events at Bullitt East as Charger head coach Lenny Raley will be running both the Bullitt County Middle School and the High School championship meets on the same day.

    The two events will begin at 5:30 p.m. at Bullitt East.

  • NB’s Moody at state

     LEXINGTON – Outside of the competitors from Bullitt Central, North Bullitt freshman Josh Moody also qualified and competed in the KHSAA Kentucky State Archery Championships.

    Taking part in his first KHSAA state championships, Moody finished with a 285 total from his 30 shots. The freshman had 17 ‘10s’ on his scorecard.

    That 285 total placed Moody 67th overall out of 273 competitors. Among freshman, he had the 12th best score.

  • BC’s Glass third at state

     LEXINGTON – Posting his best competitive score ever, Bullitt Central senior Noah Glass finished third overall at the recent KHSAA Boys’ Kentucky State Archery Championships with a final tally of 297 (out of a possible 300).

    Glass is the lone senior who competed for the Cougars in the state finals and he set a nearly perfect example. The scorecard for the senior showed 27 ‘10s’ along with three ‘9s’.

  • Bullitt Central claims first-ever boy’s archery title

     LEXINGTON – A change in the format opened the door for Bullitt Central to make history as the Cougars’ won the first KHSAA Boys’ Kentucky State Archery title on April 27 at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

  • Simpson is masterful in 4-0 win over Fern Creek

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A sterling pitching performance by junior Garrett Simpson on Wednesday led Bullitt East to the most important win of the regular season as the Chargers beat Fern Creek 4-0.

    Simpson held the Tigers to just one hit in lifting the Chargers to the top seed for the upcoming 24th District Tournament that will be played at Fern Creek the week of May 21. Fern Creek beat Bullitt East in the semi-finals of the district tournament last season, denying the Chargers a spot in the regional tournament for the first time in a dozen seasons.

  • Central drops tight game to Spencer

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Rain early in the week limited the Bullitt Central Cougars to just two games last week.

    Unfortunately, the maroon and gray could not overcome slow starts in both contests as they lost to North Bullitt 11-2 before a 7-3 loss to Spencer County on Friday.

    Against Spencer County, the Cougars had two more hits and made just one error but they could not overcome a 5-0 deficit after just two innings.

  • North Bullitt baseball runs into a ‘prom’ wall Saturday

     HEBRON ESTATES — As the final three weeks of the regular season is now underway, North Bullitt baseball coach Brian Wise continues to see progress — even if the win-loss record is atypical.

    After wins over John Hardin and Bullitt Central, reality returned over the weekend in the Louisville Invitational Tournament.

    On Wednesday, the Eagles defeated John Hardin 9-2.

    “It was a solid game,” said Wise.

  • North, winners of 11 of 12, stay hot Monday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Despite winning for the 11th time in the past 12 games, North Bullitt head coach Chad Laswell was not as pleased as one might expect after beating county rival Bullitt Central 16-3 on Monday.

    Still, it was another win for a program that at one point this season stood at 0-5 and then 1-7 before catching fire after returning home from a spring break trip to Florida. Now the Lady Eagles are 12-8 and ready to take on some of the better teams in the Sixth Region with games later this week against Pleasure Ridge Park and Butler.

  • BC softball keeps getting younger

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – It has been a tough spring for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars as the maroon and gray have been able to post only four wins to this point in the campaign.

    There was another loss on Monday, a 16-3 setback to North Bullitt (see story above). Bullitt Central has had another flurry of injuries that included losing pitcher Kaitlyn Hoffman for almost three weeks. She is back now but is working to regain her form.
