  • Eagles power way to State Push/...

     For the fourth time in the past seven years, North Bullitt won the Kentucky State Push/Pull Championship in their home gym.

    Each lifter in this meet competed in the bench press and the dead lift.

    The Eagles finished with 64 points to narrowly edge out St. Xavier with 60 points. Moore was third with 44 points.

    In the junior-varsity meet, the Eagles were third behind Bath County and St. Xavier.

  • Honors flow for area net...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was almost a clean sweep for Bullitt County in the post-season honors in the annual Sixth Region Coaches’ poll conducted by the state’s largest newspaper.

    In all, three of the top four positions went to a pair of local coaches and a local player. As is always the case, there was a lot to quibble about when it came to a lot of the results (only a small percentage of coaches vote in such things because it is done by email instead of coaches getting together in a group gathering like happens for baseball, softball and football).

  • 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.
