  • Kelly shuts-down BC in 5-0 North Bullitt win

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- There wasn’t a lot of hoopla in the North Bullitt camp on Thursday.

    Despite defeating county rival Bullitt Central 5-0 to clinch the top spot in upcoming District 23 baseball tournament, there wasn’t a lot of celebrating on the Eagle sidelines.

    Yes, it was a district victory.

    And, yes, it was against a county foe led  by a former NB freshman coach.

    But, no, head coach Brian Wise wasn’t completely satisfied with the win.

    And G.J. Moore felt his starting pitcher deserved a better fate.

  • Charger baseball did a little bit of everything last week

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Never a dull moment.

    That is the best way to describe the week that was last week for the Bullitt East Charger baseball squad. There was a little bit of everything and despite a 2-1 record, veteran head coach Jeff Bowles was still upset after the two wins with the one loss on Tuesday, a 7-6 setback to 24th District rival Jeffersontown.

  • Renneisen’s big blast helps BE beat Mercy 3-2

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- It may be the biggest softball rivalry in the region.

    But that rivalry has been a bit one-sided, although super competitive.

    The Mercy Jaguars had won the past seven encounters with Bullitt East. Four of the games were decided by one run and several went into extra innings.

    But that streak is over.

    With one mighty swing by sophomore Lindsay Renneisen, Bullitt East would start a streak of its own.

  • BC and North softball will now meet twice this spring

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – North Bullitt and Bullitt Central didn’t get to play their regular season softball game last Monday because of bad weather, but now the teams will get to play twice this spring.

    First, the two teams still have to make-up the regular season game because it is a 23rd District game and is mandatory for the post-season seeding process.

  • Crenshaw takes the initiative and signs with Campbellsville

    HEBRON ESTATES-- If the recruiters won't come to you, then go to the recruiters.
        That philosophy worked out just fine for North Bullitt senior softball player Shelby Crenshaw when it came to finding a college to continue her sport in the coming years.

  • Perfect year caps off third straight state volleyball title for Rolling Hills

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It is a sports dynasty that may not be challenged anywhere is the nation.
        For the past three seasons, the volleyball team from Rolling Hills Christian School has brought home the top division of the state KCSAA championship.
        And during those past three years, the team coached by Danielle Merrick has lost only two matches.
        This year, the team went a perfect 50-0, including winning the state tournament which featured 50 volleyball squads from across the Commonwealth.

  • Winds play role in busy week of tennis action

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Windy weather greeted tennis players most of last week.
        The regular season is entering its final days as regional play will begin in various sites next Monday.
        The North Bullitt boys went to Butler on Tuesday and returned with a 4-1 victory.
        The lone Bear victory came at court one singles, where Ben Blumeier defeated Jon Claycomb 6-2, 6-4.

  • Consistency is still a goal for all three area softball teams

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- There was a lot to like about what all three area softball teams did last week except for consistency.

    That will be one of the talking points over the next three weeks as the teams race to the post-season. That route will be made more clear this week as all three teams have district contests.

    North Bullitt and Bullitt Central were supposed to play on Monday of this week, but wet conditions forced that game to be postponed. As of Monday night, no make-up date had been set.

    BC Making Strides

  • BC finds the magic, wins three straight last week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – On the strength of three strong pitching performances, the Bullitt Central Cougars sailed through last week with three straight wins including an 8-0 victory over Moore in the first of three 23rd District games during the regular season.

    “It was not a bad week for us at all,” veteran Bullitt Central head coach G.J. Moore said on Sunday. “We needed a good week.”

    The three wins improved Bullitt Central’s record to 7-10 as it was the team’s second three-game winning streak of the spring.

  • East wins two of three, but falters against PRP

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After a less than sterling trip to Florida over spring break, the Bullitt East Chargers returned home and played some better baseball last week, winning two of three contests.

    The only negative was that the weather was not as good as it had been in Florida. In fact, the team lost a game on Tuesday against Thomas Nelson, but head coach Jeff Bowles was able to add a game on Wednesday when Taylor County made a visit to Mount Washington.
