  • Tennis heads into final week with weather looking up

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Tennis plays got a few more days of good weather as they quickly approach post-season action.

     

    Bullitt East

    The boys’ team went to Male on Friday and came away with a 4-1 loss.

    However, coach Dustin Armstrong was very encouraged by his teams’ play, especially on the two doubles courts.

    In singles, Josh Cooksey defeated Bradley Edmonds and Cameron Bacigalupi defeated Blake Thurman.

    Male won the third court by forfeit.

  • Area track teams keep running into each other

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – While all sports have been affected by the bad weather this spring, the wet and cold conditions may have taken the greatest toll on the three area track and field programs.

    Over the first three weeks of the regular season, before spring break, each of the programs had more meets canceled that conducted. In that extended time, two of the programs competed just one and then one had two small events.

  • Early offense fuels North past Central 11-2

     HEBRON ESTATES – Exploding for eight runs in the bottom of the first inning, the North Bullitt Eagles grabbed an easier than expected 11-2 victory over Bullitt Central on Thursday in a key 23rd District showdown.

  • Chargers drop one, then win three in a row

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There was a frustrating 1-0 loss to open play last week, but the Bullitt East Chargers channeled that setback into three straight wins as the red and gold moved to 11-3 for the season.

    The setback came on Tuesday at home against Christian Academy despite an outstanding pitching performance from junior Jarrett Wantye as he allowed just three hits. Unfortunately, two of those hits came in the top of the sixth inning when the Centurions scored the winning run with a single, a ground-out and then a double.

  • BC wins two then falters Saturday

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – The week started out well for the Bullitt Central baseball squad with a pair of wins, but then a road trip on Saturday brought the squad back to earth as they dropped a pair of games in which they played poor defense.

    The good news was at the start of the week as the Cougars got a strong outing from senior pitcher Callon Willet and beat Nelson County 1-0 on the road.

    Willet needed just 92 pitches for the victory as he finished with seven strikeouts and just two walks. Nelson County finished with four hits, all singles.

  • NB still finding wins to be elusive

     HEBRON ESTATES -- He’s not pleased with the record  but records don’t really mean anything in the big scheme of things.

    North Bullitt baseball coach Brian Wise is more worried about getting all the pieces together to make a post-season run.

    With that in mind, the most important games of the regular season await — Thursday at Bullitt Central and Monday at home against Southern.

    Those will determine if North Bullitt will enter the 23rd District tournament as a top seed.

  • BC will compete Thursday in KHSAA state archery finals

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central will have both its boys’ and girls’  teams competing on Thursday in the KHSAA State Archery Championships at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

  • Lady Chargers have all the answers in crushing BC

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt East and Bullitt Central hadn’t met on the softball diamond since 2015 and maybe it should have been one more year as the rebuilding Lady Cougars were no match for the Lady Chargers on Friday, as the red and gold rolled to a 26-2 victory in a three-inning contest.

    This one was just not close as Bullitt Central had to use a pair of young and inexperienced pitchers against a Bullitt East line-up that while young has recently been showing signs of rounding into a competitive team.

  • North Bullitt softball continues building momentum

     HEBRON ESTATES – A week with five wins in six games pushed the North Bullitt Lady Eagles over the .500 mark at 9-8 for the first time this season.

    Head coach Chad Laswell is finding games wherever he can after the slow start to the season due to bad weather. That included playing two games on Sunday at Bethlehem in a ‘triangle’ event that had originally been scheduled for the previous Saturday.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt Central will have both its boys’ and girls’  teams competing on Thursday in the KHSAA State Archery Championships at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.
