  • BE softball wins key district game

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The wins haven’t been as frequent as coach Ricky Hoffman would like or that the program has been used too, but the Bullitt East Lady Charger softball team did win a game last week that they had to have if they hope to advance out of district play and compete in the Sixth Region Tournament for a ninth consecutive season.

  • North Bullitt hits a late mid-season lull after big streak

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After beating Bullitt Central on Monday for the team’s 11th win in the last 12 games, North Bullitt softball coach Chad Laswell said that his team would face some challenges later in the week.

  • NB wraps up top seed with win over Trojans

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Alec Lush has worked around a little back stiffness this season.

    He’s watched as some of the younger arms took to the mound.

    But, in a game that meant the number one district seeding, Lush showed head coach Brian Wise exactly want he has wanted to see.

    “Alec made the statement: It’s still my team,” said Wise.

  • East has a solid week ‘on the road’

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers went on the road three times last week and each time returned home with a victory.

    “We were just bad on Thursday,” veteran Bullitt East head coach Jeff Bowles said over the weekend.

  • Tennis’ final week brings fair weather and flurry of play

    SHEPHERDSVILLE  — Boys and girls will be heading into Jefferson County this week as Sixth Region tournament action begins.

    Since the draw was not until Sunday night, no pairings are available.

    Savannah Kruse should have a high seed in her bid to return to the state tournament in Frankfort. Shanna Blocker of North Bullitt could also have an opportunity for a seed in singles play.

    On the boys side, it is unlikely any of the local participants will have a seed.

  • It will be a busy final week for area track programs

    The two events will begin at 5:30 p.m. at Bullitt East.
