  • Eastside’s Egan wins middle...

     LOUISVILLE – One of the strongest contingents in several years turned in a banner day on May 26 at the Kentucky Track and Cross Country Coaches Association Middle School State Championships at the University of Louisville.

  • East’s Higdon signs for hoops...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The pipeline between Bullitt County and the Spalding University women’s basketball program worked again this spring when Bullitt East senior Amber Higdon signed to play with the Lady Eagles and head coach Charlie Just.

    Higdon will be rejoining with former teammate Alyssa Peak who will be a sophomore with Spalding in the upcoming season. Former North Bullitt player Megan Goeing plays with the Lady Eagles and they will all be joined by North Bullitt twins Caroline and Sarah Janes next season.

  • Eastside sweeps middle school...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- The All-Bullitt County Middle School Track and Field Championships awarded team points to the top six finishers in each individual event on a 10-8-6-4-2-1 basis and to the top five teams in each relay on a 10-8-6-4-2 count. No school could have more than three athletes scoring team points. Only those athletes scoring team points are listed below.

    (Please note that several relay teams listed more than four runners with alternates. All runners on the score sheet are listed for that team.)

  • KHSAA is combining region cheer...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It is just six weeks until the start of football, volleyball, soccer, golf and cross-country practices on July 15 for area high school programs.

    Where did the summer go? LOL.

    Before we get into full summer mode here, a handful of things happened during the spring that just sort of got moved to a back burner because of space and time constraints.

    Cheer Changes

  • Final -- Defense falters as...

     LOUISVILLE – High school sports can teach a lot of lessons for life.

    For the Bullitt East Chargers, the lessons learned from Thursday’s Sixth Region Baseball Championship Game was that sometimes the other team is just a better squad. That was obvious for this season after Pleasure Ridge Park took the best the Chargers had to offer and rolled to a 9-0 victory at the University of Louisville’s Jim Patterson Stadium.

  • SOFTBALL - NB drops heartbreaker

     HEBRON ESTATES -- For the North Bullitt Lady Eagles, the softball season has had a lot of highs and lows.

    In the Sixth Region opener on Monday, the team had some more highs and a few more lows in a 9-8 loss in extra innings to the Jeffersontown Lady Chargers.

    Coach Chad Laswell’s team fell behind but battled back to take an 8-4 lead going to the final inning.

    That’s when the visitors hit a couple of long fly balls to knot the score.

  • Shepherdsville’s Bickel headed...

     Many people may consider the railroad industry as a thing of the past, but not Bethlehem senior Shawn Bickel.

    For as far back as he can remember, Bickel has been enamored by the railroad system.

    Not just being the engineer on a train, but he loves everything about the business.

    It might be working on a track, maintaining signals, or designing the electrical system.

  • Eagles overcome the unknown

     OKOLONA – If nothing else, high school coaches want to know what they are walking into before a game.

    That can range from the level of the opposition to field conditions all the way to weather conditions.

  • Second day is a nightmare for...

     OKOLONA  -- For the second straight year, Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore left the  post-season shaking his head.

    And, for the second straight season, the Cougars finished the season with the most frustrating of losses.

    For the Cougars, “lightning” struck twice in a 7-6 loss to the host Southern Trojans.

    Leading 3-1 in the top of the seventh inning on Monday, umpires saw lightning in the sky. That suspended the District 23 tourney opener to Tuesday afternoon.

  • Walk-off hit is a heartbreaker...

            FERN CREEK – Despite collecting seven hits, two more than Jeffersontown, it was the Bullitt East Lady Chargers that went home filled with frustration from the semi-finals of the 24th District Softball Tournament at Fern Creek.

    In fact, Jeffersontown had just three hits through six innings off Bullitt East pitcher Karley Dawson. However, the ‘other’ Lady Chargers had two hits in the bottom of the seventh inning including a two-out single that plated the winning run in a 2-1 Jeffersontown victory.
