  • BE’s Willis scores lone point...

     LEXINGTON – The small contingent of local competitors in Saturday’s Class 3-A State Track and Field Championships at the University of Kentucky, ended up battling Mother Nature as much as the other athletes in the field.

  • Kruse at state tennis

      LEXINGTON — Bullitt East’s Savannah Kruse didn’t get any favors in the KHSAA State Tennis Tournament at the University of Kentucky last week.

    The junior, who was making her second trip to the state tournament, drew the the ninth-seeded Samantha Spady from Corbin High School on Thursday.

    Kruse, who earned a trip to the state tournament thanks to reaching the semifinals of the Sixth Region event, fell 6-0, 6-1 to Spady.

  • Wantye’s home run fuels Chargers...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A first inning home run off the bat of junior Jarrett Wantye capped a four run start for the Bullitt East Chargers on Friday as the red and gold celebrated Senior Night with a 10-0 victory over arch-rival Bullitt Central in a five-inning contest.

    Wantye’s home run accounted for the third and fourth runs of the inning and before another pitch was thrown, the umpires sent both teams to their dugouts due to a steady rain. Following a 25-minute delay, play resumed, but the momentum stayed with the Chargers.

  • Championship Effort: Three...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON—When representing a country known as a melting pot, the team should be its own melting pot of several different schools.

    For this year’s United States Junior National All-Girl team, girls from both Bullitt East and Bullitt Central high schools united with girls from Eastside Middle to bring home the gold for the second year in a row from the Junior Elite Division at the 2017 International Cheer Union (ICU) World Championships.

    Teams Finland and Sweden came in second and third place in the division.

  • Central baseball still seeks...

     SHEPHERDVILLE – After watching an early 7-1 advantage vanish into thin air, the Bullitt Central Cougars scored four times in the bottom of the sixth inning last Monday to beat visiting Thomas Nelson High School 12-8.

    The win was the seventh for the Cougars this season and just the third win at home.

  • Area softball teams are ready...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the second time in six days the Bullitt East Lady Chargers lined up in the opposite dugout against neighbor Nelson County on Thursday.

    The second meeting was in Mount Washington and the outcome was just as positive as Bullitt East scored six times in the bottom of the first inning and then rolled to a 12-1 victory over the Lady Cardinals. The first meeting had been an 11-0 Lady Charger victory.

  • East’s Kruse returns to state...

     LOUISVILLE — They had met a few weeks ago in the regular season.

    The first set between North Bullitt’s top singles player Shanna Blocker and Bullitt East’s top player Savannah Kruse was tight.

    The Lady Charger went on to win the first set and then cruised through the second set.

    In the Sixth Region tennis tournament, the two would be paired in the quarterfinals. The winner would earn a berth in the state tournament.

  • BE’s Willis, Brown claim...

     LOUISVILLE – Wins from Bullitt East seniors Taylor Willis in the girls’ high jump and from Matt Brown in the boys’ discus highlighted the local efforts in Saturday’s Class 3-A, Region 3 Track and Field Championships at Male High School.

    Competing in perhaps the state’s toughest region, a grouping that includes state track powers Male, St. Xavier, Central, Manual and Butler, the three Bullitt County programs find scoring team points a difficult task along with qualifying athletes for this week’s state track meet in Lexington.

  • Craddock steps down as Eagle...

     HEBRON ESTATES – After four seasons and 59 wins, North Bullitt boys’ basketball coach Korey Craddock stepped down last week.

    Since taking over the Eagle program in the summer of 2014, Craddock and his wife Jessica have had two children and the coach said that he had a strong desire to spend more time at home with son Colton and daughter Oakley.

    Plus, Craddock had the difficult task of coaching at North Bullitt while teaching at Bullitt East while living in Taylorsville. Craddock has not resigned from his teaching position at Bullitt East.
