     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Former North Bullitt and Mercy softball standout Jordan Vorbrink on Monday was named the C-USA Co-Player of the Week as the Western Kentucky Lady Hilltoppers won four games including a 4-1 victory over top-25 power Kentucky.

    Vorbrink is the first Western Kentucky player to earn the honor in C-USA, a conference that the Bowling Green school joined just a few years ago.

    This is a big season for the Lady Hilltoppers as they stand at 26-5 through games over the weekend. Besides Kentucky, Western Kentucky has also beaten top-25 Auburn.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After some bad weather early in the week and then teams not playing late in the week as they were breaking for spring break trips all added up to a slow week for area high school softball teams.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – A combined no-hitter on Thursday against Whitefield Academy highlighted a week in which the Bullitt Central Cougars won two out of three to move to 3-3 after the first two weeks of the 2019 campaign.

     HEBRON ESTATES — Brian Wise liked what he saw on a cool, windy Tuesday afternoon.

    And what he saw, from beyond the outfield fence, was his North Bullitt Eagles putting together just enough hits to support Bryce Saylor’s one-hit 4-0 shutout win over the Spencer County Bears.

    Wise, serving the first of a three-game suspension after being tossed for arguing balls and strikes on March 23, was pleased with his pitcher and, more importantly, his defense.

  • East wins three in softball;...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Bullitt East softball head coach Ricky Hoffman had a plan when it came to setting up the schedule for this season. The veteran coach wanted to get his team some early confidence before facing some stronger opposition.

    Mission accomplished.

    The first three opponents were not exactly a murder’s row of foes, but the Lady Chargers picked up some much needed confidence as they blew past Southern, 13-5, Nelson County 17-2 and Central 27-2 in the home opener on Thursday.
