  • SEMIS -- East rallies past North...

     LOUISVILLE – In a contest that will go down in local baseball lore as perhaps the best ever, the Bullitt East Chargers scored twice in the bottom of the seventh inning and beat North Bullitt 3-2 on the biggest stage in which the two arch-rivals have ever met.

  • BASEBALL - East wins and...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There are no style points in baseball.

    In addition, in the post-season, nobody asks if the game was beautiful, only did you win or lose.

    While it wasn’t always a thing of beauty, the Bullitt East Chargers won and advanced on Monday, beating former district rival Fairdale 8-2 in an opening round game of the Sixth Region Tournament.

  • BASEBALL - Eagles shine in...

     HEBRON ESTATES — Forget the record. The North Bullitt Eagles feel they are still a team to be in the hunt for a Sixth Region baseball title.

    On Monday, they put pitching, defense and timely hitting together to defeat DeSales 9-1 in the opening round of the regional tournament.

    This is a DeSales program which has been to the regional final the past three years.

    On Monday, veteran skipper Brian Wise put senior ace Alec Lush on the hill.

  • Regional diamond action on Monday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- All three of the local coaches still left in this week’s Sixth Region Tournaments walked away from Saturday morning’s draws with smiles as they each got about the best positions possible under the circumstances.

    For Bullitt East and North Bullitt in baseball that means they each drew on the opposite side of the bracket from defending state champion Pleasure Ridge Park, the team that returns every starter from that team.

  • Short week works for Lady Eagles

     OKOLONA – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles made short work of winning a third consecutive 23rd District softball crown.

    Needing just one win for the title, the green and gold rallied from an early deficit and beat Southern 10-2 on Tuesday. Southern scored twice in the top of the third to go ahead 2-1 before the Lady Eagles tied the game in the bottom of the frame. North Bullitt then blew the game open with four runs in the fifth and four more in the sixth to secure the win.

  • Mount Washington names park...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON—A Mount Washington spot has a new name honoring a local student’s statewide achievement.

    The Lindsey Duvall Park, previously known as the Mount Washington City Park, is located at 100 Newman Way behind Mount Washington Elementary.

    Though it was meant to be a surprise unveiling during an opening day celebration (which was postponed due to bad weather), Parks Director Sheryl Paxton said word spread too quickly after the wind blew the cover off to keep it a secret.

  • BE back on top by beating Tigers...

     FERN CREEK – A year after failing to advance out of district play for the first time in a dozen seasons, the Bullitt East Chargers were back on top of the 24th District on Wednesday after defeating Fern Creek 7-1.

    It was Fern Creek that knocked Bullitt East out of the post-season early last season, beating the red and gold 5-4 in the semi-finals.

  • BC stumbles late

            OKOLONA – Frustration abounded for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars on Monday in the semi-finals of the 23rd District Softball Tournament against Southern High School on the Lady Trojans’ home field.

    Bullitt Central scored four times in the top of the sixth inning and pulled even with the second-seeded Lady Trojans at 8-8. But in the bottom of the inning the season came to an abrupt end as Southern sent 12 batters to the plate, scoring ten runs with the game ending on the ‘mercy’ rule at 18-8.

  • NB wins by forfeit

      OKOLONA – It couldn’t have been any easier for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles to advance to a fifth straight appearance in the 23rd District Softball Tournament championship game after Moore forfeited to the green and gold.

    Originally, Moore had said that they would play on Monday, but then late last week told tournament organizers that they did not want to play.

  • Eagles advance with 12-2 win

     OKOLONA — It was almost the perfect scenario for Brian Wise.

    While the start was a little slower than he would have wanted in a district tournament game, Wise couldn’t complain with the end result.

    That was a 12-2 win for the North Bullitt Eagles over the Moore Mustangs in the semifinals of the 23rd District tournament on Monday at Southern High School.

    The victory advanced the Eagles to the Sixth Region tournament, which begins on Monday.
