  • Eagles bounce back well from tough setback

     HEBRON ESTATES — The great thing about baseball is that you play a whole lot of games during the spring.

    And, if you have a frustrating game one day, you have the opportunity to play a great one the next time out.

    Such was the case last week for the North Bullitt Eagles.

    After surrendering a four-run lead with two outs in the seventh inning against Spencer County on Monday, the Eagles had one of their best outings the next day against Collins.

  • North softball pulls away late from BC to win 10-0

     HEBRON ESTATES – With the top seed on the line for the upcoming 23rd District Tournament, North Bullitt and Bullitt Central collided on Wednesday with both teams sporting 2-0 records in district games.

    The two teams have both been playing better since spring break. North Bullitt had won six in a row since returning from Florida before a loss the day before to state power Manual 10-0. Bullitt Central had won four of five since spring break with four wins coming in a row.

  • NB scores early to rout BC, but bigger meeting on the horizon

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Knowing that the two teams would be playing each other in a few weeks for the right to advance to the Sixth Region tournament, it was not surprising that Brian Wise and G.J. Moore weren’t going to show the other their best on Tuesday.

    With the exception of being a county rivalry with some pride on the line, nothing was at stake in the District 23 clash between North Bullitt and host Bullitt Central.

  • East has an eventful week, now stands 19-4

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – There was never a dull moment with the Bullitt East Chargers last week both on and off the field.

    At the end of the week, the top news was that the Chargers stood at 19-4 overall. During the week, the red and gold had picked up the most important game of the regular season when the team beat 24th District rival Fern Creek 2-1 in ten innings to secure the top-seed for the post-season.

  • Thomas More baseball gets NB’s Steitz to sign

     HEBRON ESTATES – For many high school athletes, the sport comes first and the school selection is based on the sport – for good or bad.

    That wasn’t the case with North Bullitt baseball senior Destin Steitz. From the very beginning of the college search, Steitz knew exactly what he wanted to major in – Marine Biology. That meant that if he wanted to stay in Kentucky that he had only one option. Stitz felt that option was just fine with him and he recently signed to be a student and baseball player at Thomas More College in northern Kentucky.

  • Eagle’s Tipton signs for baseball at Pikeville

     HEBRON ESTATES – Despite having a very limited high school history to sell college recruiters, North Bullitt senior Tyler Tipton let his actions speak volumes.

    Tipton missed the first half of his junior season for the Eagles and never really got back into rhythm once he did return.


     Sgt. Charles Bauswell of the U.S. Army Recruiting Station in Louisville was at Bullitt Central recently to present the Ultimate Teammate Award to Bullitt Central senior Aiden Terry and junior Chloe Phillips. Also present was Bullitt Central boys head coach Shane Popplewell. The award was also sponsored by the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches.

  • Local tennis teams in season’s homestretch

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Tennis teams moved closer and closer to regional play.

    In fact, there are just two weeks remaining in the regular season. The newly realigned regional tournaments will start on Monday, May 13 with the first two rounds of girls’ play at Mercy High School. A day later, the first two rounds of the boys’ tournament will be contested at Mercy.

    The final rounds of the tournament will be played later that week at Mercy.


  • BE track gets in limited action at Waggener Inv.

     SAINT MATTHEWS – Coming out of the Charger Challenge at Bullitt East, it was a light week for area track teams.

    In fact, other than the Bullitt East Chargers sending a limited number of boys to the Waggener Invitational on Monday last week, there was no action between the Charger Challenge and both Bullitt East and North Bullitt competing on Friday night in the Panther Invitational at Elizabethtown High School (see results in next Monday’s edition).

  • Charger baseball stays hot with three more wins

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers continued to play solid baseball last week, adding three more victories to their resume heading into perhaps the most important week remaining in the regular season.

    Because of rain on Friday and Saturday, the red and gold were limited to just three games. The team missed a game on Saturday that was supposed to be played at Whitaker Bank Ball Park in Lexington against Lewis County because of the rain.
