  • Simpson is masterful in 4-0 win...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A sterling pitching performance by junior Garrett Simpson on Wednesday led Bullitt East to the most important win of the regular season as the Chargers beat Fern Creek 4-0.

    Simpson held the Tigers to just one hit in lifting the Chargers to the top seed for the upcoming 24th District Tournament that will be played at Fern Creek the week of May 21. Fern Creek beat Bullitt East in the semi-finals of the district tournament last season, denying the Chargers a spot in the regional tournament for the first time in a dozen seasons.

  • Central drops tight game to...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Rain early in the week limited the Bullitt Central Cougars to just two games last week.

    Unfortunately, the maroon and gray could not overcome slow starts in both contests as they lost to North Bullitt 11-2 before a 7-3 loss to Spencer County on Friday.

    Against Spencer County, the Cougars had two more hits and made just one error but they could not overcome a 5-0 deficit after just two innings.

  • North Bullitt baseball runs into...

     HEBRON ESTATES — As the final three weeks of the regular season is now underway, North Bullitt baseball coach Brian Wise continues to see progress — even if the win-loss record is atypical.

    After wins over John Hardin and Bullitt Central, reality returned over the weekend in the Louisville Invitational Tournament.

    On Wednesday, the Eagles defeated John Hardin 9-2.

    “It was a solid game,” said Wise.

  • North, winners of 11 of 12, stay...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Despite winning for the 11th time in the past 12 games, North Bullitt head coach Chad Laswell was not as pleased as one might expect after beating county rival Bullitt Central 16-3 on Monday.

    Still, it was another win for a program that at one point this season stood at 0-5 and then 1-7 before catching fire after returning home from a spring break trip to Florida. Now the Lady Eagles are 12-8 and ready to take on some of the better teams in the Sixth Region with games later this week against Pleasure Ridge Park and Butler.

  • BC softball keeps getting younger

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – It has been a tough spring for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars as the maroon and gray have been able to post only four wins to this point in the campaign.

    There was another loss on Monday, a 16-3 setback to North Bullitt (see story above). Bullitt Central has had another flurry of injuries that included losing pitcher Kaitlyn Hoffman for almost three weeks. She is back now but is working to regain her form.

  • Lady Chargers drop two, but stay...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Bad weather early in the week limited the Bullitt East Lady Chargers to just two games last week and neither game went into the win column.

    The important game during the week came on Thursday with the rivalry contest with Mercy. The game was much closer than the final score would indicate as the Jaguars only had a 2-0 lead before scoring seven times in the bottom of the sixth inning to win 9-0.

  • BC’s Coogle signs to play soccer...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – As a Kentucky Governor’s Scholar, Bullitt Central senior Payton Coogle didn’t need a sport to attend college.

    In fact, Coogle looked into attending several schools in which she would not be an athlete.

    However, in the end, Coogle decided that she wanted to continue balancing her academics with her love of soccer. That is why she recently opted to bypass some bigger schools and signed to attend Midway College in central Kentucky to play soccer.

    Male won the third court by forfeit.
