  • BC, NB baseball to meet twice this spring

     HEBRON ESTATES -- A win by Bullitt Central and a loss by North Bullitt in district games last week now means that the Cougars and Eagles will meet in the semi-finals of the 23rd District Tournament on May 19.

    Southern is now 2-0 with only a game remaining against 0-2 Moore. North Bullitt and Bullitt Central were both 1-1 going into yesterday’s meeting in Shepherdsville. While a lot of pride was on the line, the outcome will not affect the pairings for the 23rd District Tournament.

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The first in-county track meet of the season was on Wednesday as Bullitt East hosted the Charger Challenge.

    The event included 13 teams with squads coming from Bullitt, Spencer, Nelson and Jefferson County. Bullitt East head coach Lenny Raley had electronic timing in place for this event. That feature allowed the huge event to run smoothly.

     HEBRON ESTATES – A little sun seems to do the North Bullitt Lady Eagles a world of good.

    For the second year in a row, the green and gold returned from a spring break to Florida a different team. After winning four games over the first three weeks of the season, the Lady Eagles won four straight games last week including a 15-10 victory over Bullitt East in the first meeting between the two programs in two years.

  • BE pitching controls the week including NB

     HEBRON ESTATES – Baseball has the ‘perfect game’ as part of the long running lingo of the sport.

    The Bullitt East Chargers didn’t have a perfect game last week, but they almost had a perfect week. The red and gold won four times to run the team’s winning streak to ten games. In the four games last week, the Chargers allowed just two runs and neither of those were earned.

  • Central opens district play with loss to Southern

     SHEPHERDSVILLE  — It was not the way Bullitt Central coach G.J. Moore wanted to start the District 23 campaign.

    Postponed a day due to a wet field, Bullitt Central’s bats never woke up as the Cougars fell 11-1 in six innings to the Southern Trojans.

    After the first round of district play, North Bullitt and Southern have victories and Bullitt Central and Moore have losses. The regular season play will determine the all-important seeding for the district tourney in May.

  • North wins district opener

     HEBRON ESTATES — No matter how pretty. No matter how ugly. It is always golden when you can pick up a victory in a district game.

    On Tuesday, North Bullitt did what it was supposed to do — take care of business in defeating Moore 10-0 in five innings.

    Head coach Brian Wise was able to breathe a little easier after the first inning.

    With three consecutive walks to load the bases, senior Drew Wheatly belted a grand slam for a 4-0 lead.

    Walks forced in two more runs in the second inning.
