  • Chargers stay hot with three more victories

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – It was basically the calm before the storm last week for the Bullitt East Chargers on the baseball diamond.

    As is so often the case for area teams, Kentucky Derby weekend provides the final break before the end of season whirlwind of district and regional play. There was no school on Friday with just a few games scheduled before everyone took Saturday off.

  • Central plays well, but falls late to Butler

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The combination of rain and the Kentucky Derby led to a short week for the Bullitt Central Cougars as the maroon and gray contested just a pair of games.

    First, there was a tough outing against the new kids on the block as Bullitt Central lost a 12-1 decision on Tuesday to the Christian Educational Consortium. Most of the players on the team are home schooled and get together only for baseball.

    This was the first time the Christian Educational Consortium had played a team from Bullitt County.

  • 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.
