  • NB wins by forfeit

      OKOLONA – It couldn’t have been any easier for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles to advance to a fifth straight appearance in the 23rd District Softball Tournament championship game after Moore forfeited to the green and gold.

    Originally, Moore had said that they would play on Monday, but then late last week told tournament organizers that they did not want to play.

  • Eagles advance with 12-2 win

     OKOLONA — It was almost the perfect scenario for Brian Wise.

    While the start was a little slower than he would have wanted in a district tournament game, Wise couldn’t complain with the end result.

    That was a 12-2 win for the North Bullitt Eagles over the Moore Mustangs in the semifinals of the 23rd District tournament on Monday at Southern High School.

    The victory advanced the Eagles to the Sixth Region tournament, which begins on Monday.

  • BC vs. Southern put on hold

     OKOLONA — Bullitt Central was three outs away from winning its first district baseball game since 2013.

    However, leading 3-1 in the top of the seventh inning, Bullitt Central would have to return on Tuesday at 5 p.m. to see if it would advance to the championship game of the 23rd District.

    Bullitt Central was batting in the top of the seventh when lightning was seen in the skies. After a delay, it was decided to return on Tuesday.

    Southern would have its at-bats in the bottom of the seventh inning.

  • Chargers have no trouble winning opener

     FERN CREEK – To the surprise of no one, the Bullitt East Chargers had no trouble on Monday against Whitefield Academy in the opening game of the 24th District Baseball Tournament at Fern Creek High School.

    Bullitt East scored eight runs in the first inning and added seven more in the second before head coach Jeff Bowles pulled most of his regulars in a 17-0 victory. The Chargers had beaten the Wildcats 11-0 back on April 19 in one of just nine games Whitefield played during the regular season.

  • Post-season diamond play starts on Monday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Get in. Get out. Get finished.

    That seems to be the philosophy of area athletic directors as this week’s post-season play for area teams in baseball and softball will be about as compact as possible.

    In the 23rd District, with play at Southern High School, the only facility in the district with lights, the decision was made to do everything in two days in both sports. The semi-finals in each sport will be played on Monday with the championship games played at the same time on Tuesday.

  • Area softball teams are ready for post-season

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the second time in six days the Bullitt East Lady Chargers lined up in the opposite dugout against neighbor Nelson County on Thursday.

    The second meeting was in Mount Washington and the outcome was just as positive as Bullitt East scored six times in the bottom of the first inning and then rolled to a 12-1 victory over the Lady Cardinals. The first meeting had been an 11-0 Lady Charger victory.

  • Central baseball still seeks pitching depth

     SHEPHERDVILLE – After watching an early 7-1 advantage vanish into thin air, the Bullitt Central Cougars scored four times in the bottom of the sixth inning last Monday to beat visiting Thomas Nelson High School 12-8.

    The win was the seventh for the Cougars this season and just the third win at home.

  • Wantye’s home run fuels Chargers past Central

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A first inning home run off the bat of junior Jarrett Wantye capped a four run start for the Bullitt East Chargers on Friday as the red and gold celebrated Senior Night with a 10-0 victory over arch-rival Bullitt Central in a five-inning contest.

    Wantye’s home run accounted for the third and fourth runs of the inning and before another pitch was thrown, the umpires sent both teams to their dugouts due to a steady rain. Following a 25-minute delay, play resumed, but the momentum stayed with the Chargers.

  • Championship Effort: Three squads blend together to bring home gold medal in worlds

     MOUNT WASHINGTON—When representing a country known as a melting pot, the team should be its own melting pot of several different schools.

    For this year’s United States Junior National All-Girl team, girls from both Bullitt East and Bullitt Central high schools united with girls from Eastside Middle to bring home the gold for the second year in a row from the Junior Elite Division at the 2017 International Cheer Union (ICU) World Championships.

    Teams Finland and Sweden came in second and third place in the division.

  • North softball fashions 3-1 week

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Heading into the final week of the regular season, the North Bullitt softball team claimed wins in three of four contests.

    The week started with a 15-0 victory over Bardstown at home in a game that was stopped after just three innings.

    Madison Ludwig pitched the first two innings for the win before Elizabeth Hines pitched the last inning. Each pitcher gave up one hit.

    At the plate, North Bullitt had just eight hits, but walked nine times and Bardstown made two errors.
