  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • BC vs. Southern put on hold

     OKOLONA — Bullitt Central was three outs away from winning its first district baseball game since 2013.

    However, leading 3-1 in the top of the seventh inning, Bullitt Central would have to return on Tuesday at 5 p.m. to see if it would advance to the championship game of the 23rd District.

    Bullitt Central was batting in the top of the seventh when lightning was seen in the skies. After a delay, it was decided to return on Tuesday.

    Southern would have its at-bats in the bottom of the seventh inning.

  • Chargers have no trouble winning...

     FERN CREEK – To the surprise of no one, the Bullitt East Chargers had no trouble on Monday against Whitefield Academy in the opening game of the 24th District Baseball Tournament at Fern Creek High School.

    Bullitt East scored eight runs in the first inning and added seven more in the second before head coach Jeff Bowles pulled most of his regulars in a 17-0 victory. The Chargers had beaten the Wildcats 11-0 back on April 19 in one of just nine games Whitefield played during the regular season.

  • Post-season diamond play starts...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Get in. Get out. Get finished.

    That seems to be the philosophy of area athletic directors as this week’s post-season play for area teams in baseball and softball will be about as compact as possible.

    In the 23rd District, with play at Southern High School, the only facility in the district with lights, the decision was made to do everything in two days in both sports. The semi-finals in each sport will be played on Monday with the championship games played at the same time on Tuesday.

  • 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.
