  • Former BE standouts on national...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Men’s and Women’s NCAA Basketball Tournaments will be on everyone’s radar this week with first and second round games Thursday through Monday.

    The events might even be a little bigger than normal in Mount Washington as a pair of former Bullitt East standouts both will be playing in the big dances.

  • BC softball under new management

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The name on the office door may have changed, but Aaron Basil is not new to the Bullitt Central softball program.

    Since 2010 Basil has been part of the Lady Cougar program. He started under Buddy Gallemore and then continued when Mike Phillips ran the show.

    Last summer, Phillips announced his retirement. That opened the door for Basil and he stepped right into the fire.

  • East is deep and experienced...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The expectations for the Bullitt East baseball program are always high under head coach Jeff Bowles.

    In 2019 those expectations are even higher than normal.

    The Chargers return a deep and experienced ball club that reached the championship game of the Sixth Region Tournament a year ago before losing to defending state champion Pleasure Ridge Park.

  • North Bullitt seeks return to...

     HEBRON ESTATES  — The taste of a less than satisfying season can tend to linger a long time.

    But it can also be a motivating factor in the off-season to make sure the work that is needed is completed to avoid a repeat.

    In the world of North Bullitt baseball, advancing to the Sixth Region semifinal wasn’t a bad experience. However, the 3-2 loss to Bullitt East capped off a season where the Eagles had a 12-26 record and that did not sit well with veteran skipper Brian Wise and his staff.

  • BC baseball looking for a better...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Over the past two seasons, the Bullitt Central Cougars have not been world-beaters when it comes to baseball, but they have been competitive during the regular season for the most part.

  • New pitching depth to fuel Lady...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There was not a lot of joy surrounding the Bullitt East softball program last season.

    For the first time since 2009, the Lady Chargers failed to advance out of district play, losing 2-1 to Jeffersontown. There was also the first losing record since that 2009 season as the red and gold finished with a 9-18 mark.

    After that 2009 season, there was a coaching change. Ricky Hoffman was hired and he has guided the program for the past nine seasons. So, the lack of results a year ago was new to him also.

  • BC’s Gould all-in to be a Blue...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE  — The mere thought of Savannah Gould being a college athlete might bring a chuckle to her parents.

    Well, let them chuckle as Gould will attend Lindsey Wilson College next fall and will compete on the school’s archery team.

    The senior at Bullitt Central High recently signed to continue her athletic career at Lindsey Wilson, which will be in its only second year with an archery program.

  • Lindsey Wilson inks BC’s Metcalf...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE — Everyone in the family was involved with archery so it made sense that Casie Metcalf would follow suit.

    Even if that means your high school coach also happens to be with your dad.

    For Metcalf it was a pretty good experience — both participating for the Bullitt Central archery team and doing it under the tutelage of her dad, Dusty.

  • Griffin Club brings home three...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE — Based out of Bullitt Central High, the Griffin Wrestling Club made an impressive showing at the state youth championships.

    Lane Griffin, Mason Montgomery and Brayden Montgomery each won first place in their weight class.

    Grayson Wade finished second and Tristan Cooper was third in their weight classifications.

    Jason Bayne finished sixth in his class.

    Other competitors included Lachlan Bodner, Alex Terry, Hunter Albritton, Neal Wright, Donnie McCubbins, Adam Perry and Adalyn Perry.

  • Lady Eagles in ‘reload’ mode in...

     HEBRON ESTATES – With a solid first season under his belt, North Bullitt softball coach Chad Laswell is looking forward to more success this spring.

    Still, there is a of work to be done in 2019 as the coach has to replace the top two pitchers from last season’s 17-16 squad that won the 24th District title. There were also major losses at some key field position spots that need to be shored up.
