  • Sixth Region diamond play starts...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- For the first time ever, Bullitt County will host a pair of post-season baseball games on Monday when both Bullitt East and North Bullitt will be hosting first-round games in the Sixth Region Tournament.

    This is the first year for baseball since Bullitt County schools joined the Sixth Region, that they have played opening round baseball games on the site of the district winners.

    That format was in play last year for softball and in the past all three local schools hosted regional softball tournaments in the old Eighth Region.

  • Softball teams end strong; eye...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – Rain kept the three area high school softball teams on the sidelines for much of last week, but the final week of the regular season did produce some promising results as the teams head into post-season play starting on Tuesday of this week.

    North Bullitt and Bullitt Central were set to play each other in the semi-finals of the 23rd District Tournament on Tuesday at Bullitt Central. Bullitt East was set to play Fern Creek on Tuesday in the 24th District Tournament.

  • Bullitt East blasts Whitefield...

     FERN CREEK – ‘Babe Ruth is dead, throw strikes.’

    That is one of the sage pieces of advice that veteran Bullitt East baseball coach Jeff Bowles tries to pass on to his pitchers before big games. Obviously, senior Chase Patton is listening.

  • North Bullitt pulls away from...

      SHEPHERDSVILLE - That first game of the district tournament is the one that worries most coaches.

    No matter how well you have done in the regular season, a loss will pack your cleats for the summer.

    And when you’re tied at 1-1 in the fifth inning against a team you handily defeated earlier in the season, the nerves might be a bit more tense.

    But, thanks to a change in strategy, a couple of breaks and back-to-back doubles, the North Bullitt Eagles advanced to the championship game of the 23rd District baseball tournament.

  • BC closes season 2-1

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The final week of high school baseball’s regular season is not so much a finish, but a dress rehearsal for the district tournaments which start this week.

    Still, for a team with a losing record, finishing the season with wins in two of the final three games is a definite confidence boost. That is what the Bullitt Central Cougars got last week as they wrapped up the regular season.

  • Eagles end season on impressive...

     HEBRON ESTATES - Securing what appears to be a regular season school record of 23 victories is pretty impressive.

    But the North Bullitt Eagle baseball team has its sights set on the overall season record of 26 victories.

    Thanks to a strong 3-1 finish in the regular season, the Eagles entered post-season play on Monday with an impressive 23-10 record, second best in the Sixth Region.

  • East closes with win over Eastern

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After a sluggish start to the week and then some bad weather, the Bullitt East Chargers rebounded late last week to add to more victories to the total before the regular season came to a close on Saturday.

    The only loss last week came on Tuesday as the Chargers dropped a 4-2 decision to Christian Academy despite playing at home.

  • Post-season on the diamonds...

     LEXINGTON – Bullitt East senior Hunter Norris didn’t have as long a stay at the Kentucky State Tennis Championships as he would have liked, but it was still a good way to end the season.

         Paired up against freshman Anthony Bosch of Covington Catholic in the first round of the 64-player draw, Norris lost the match 6-4, 6-2.

  • Bullitt Countians claim five...

     LOUISVILLE – The move up to Class 3-A in track might not have been quite as painful as first thought, at least on the girls’ side, as both Bullitt East and North Bullitt made strong showings in Thursday’s Region 3 Meet at Male High School.

  • Lady Chargers have won 9 of 10...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers continued their late season revival with four more wins last week, but the team did miss out on a game with a top-20 opponent because of the heavy rain on Saturday.

    The four wins mean that the Lady Chargers have won nine of their last ten outings. The team is now 24-8 as they enter play in the final week of the regular season.
