  • 24th District Baseball: Pitchers...

    FAIRDALE - If a person had not seen a single Bullitt Central baseball game all season, watching Monday’s District opener against Fairdale would have been a perfect illustration of a frustrating year.

    The Cougars got good pitching but little offense in a 2-1 setback to the host Bulldogs. The loss closed out the Bullitt Central season with a 5-18 mark.

    “This game was a mirror image of our entire season,” coach Tommy Alvey said following the loss. “The pitching has kept us in the ball games but we just haven’t been able to hit the ball.”

  • Scholarship in honor of Ennis

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Charles “Chuck” Ennis III had a very successful career in the military.

    But his dream was to someday go back to college and earn his bachelor’s degree.

    Unfortunately, on Jan. 29, 2008, Ennis was returning home from college when another vehicle crossed the center line. The son of Danny and Sandy Ennis died at the scene.

  • NB's Schott signs to...

    LOUISVILLE - North Bullitt senior Sara Schott got the best of both worlds last week when she signed to attend Midway College in Midway, Ky.

    On one hand, she will get to continue playing volleyball for a program that is trying to rebuild itself under third-year head coach Cindy Cheatham. At the same time, she gets to follow her dream to major in accounting. It also didn’t hurt that Midway is not too far away from home.

  • Cougars win a game, but then...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars picked up one win last week, but for the most part the maroon and gray struggled with poor fielding which overshadowed some strong pitching and improved hitting.

    The week started with a 14-4 loss to Fairdale. The outcome means that the two teams will meet in the first round of the 24th District Tournament which will be played at Fairdale this season. Fairdale will have the number four seed while Bullitt Central will be the number five team.

  • Lady Cougars find ways to win...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- A week earlier, Bullitt Central softball coach Buddy Gallemore was lamenting his team’s inability to win close ball games.

    What a difference a week makes. The Lady Cougars did a much better job of getting the key hit at key times as they won three of five games last week including a 7-5 victory over Southern.

  • Micah's Chester to play for...

    HILLVIEW -- What college basketball coach has won the most national championships and what school does he work for?

    Give up.

    Ron Arnett has won 11 national championships as head coach of the Kentucky Christian University Lady Knights, including the past three National Christian College Athletic Association titles.

    When Rachel Chester of Micah Christian Academy in northern Bullitt County went down to try out for a possible spot on next year’s roster, the coach who has won 78 percent of his games at the Grayson, Ky., university was impressed.

  • Vittitoe takes 'big heart...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- If you ask veteran football coach Dan Leasor the size of senior Jesse Vittitoe, the answer would be “big enough.”

    If you asked Vittitoe, the answer would be the same.

    While there may be football players who are taller and heavier than the Bullitt Central player, there is none with a bigger heart.

    That heart and desire will lead the son of Kathy and Michael Vittitoe, to Illinois College to continue his gridiron career.

  • BE's Smith picks a sport,...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Bullitt East senior Chelsey Smith had some tough questions to answer this spring before she starts college in the fall.

    No, picking a college didn’t turn out to be as difficult as selecting a sport. Smith is participating in three sports during this school year and in two of those, volleyball and basketball, she has been a part of the varsity teams for the past four seasons.

    After weighing all of the options, Smith decided that volleyball was the sport she was best suited to pursue in the future.
